“The holy mystery of God is love beyond imagining. Not enough people seem to know this, even those who practice the Christian religion . . ." —From the Introduction

Elizabeth A. Johnson is widely regarded as among the most influential and creative Catholic theologians in the world—particularly for her contributions in bringing a feminist perspective to the central themes of Christian faith. Addressed to the wider “people of God,” this anthology of Johnson’s essays and lectures—many available for the first time—provides an overview of her essential work, while also offering a brilliantly fresh exploration of the Christian faith.

From the question of belief itself, to the mysteries of God, Jesus Christ, and the work of the Holy Spirit, a central theme for Johnson is the overflowing compassion of the living God, engaged with the struggles and suffering of the world. Throughout this collection Johnson's feminist insights, her concerns for an imperiled planet and for those on the margins, add urgency and passion to her reflections.

Elizabeth A. Johnson, a member of the Sisters of Saint Joseph, is Distinguished Professor of Theology, Fordham University. A former president of the Catholic TheologicalSociety of America, she is the recipient of the John Courtney Murray Award for distinguished achievement in theology. Her book She Who Is received the Grawemeyer Award in Religion. Her other books include Consider Jesus, Quest for the Living God  and Ask the Beasts: Darwin and the God of Love.
