Nevertheless, We Persist: A Feminist Public Theology

Nevertheless, We Persist

By Rosemary P Carbine. Drawing on major figures in feminist and womanist theologies as well as public theology, examines a rich range of historical and contemporary faith-based movements such as the Catholic Worker, the Civil Rights Movement, United Farm Workers, and The Plowshares Movement. Each chapter ends with a contemporary social movement that continues and radicalizes a part of an earlier movement but in more multi-faith ways in order to redress the increasing fracture of US public life in our time. Concludes with a contemporary case study of feminist intersectional and interfaith justice, drawing out insights from NETWORK’s Nuns on the Bus for the future work of feminist public theology to create community and to construct a shared public life that expands beyond single social issues and religions.
