Christian feminist theologians have expanded notions of God, conscience and preaching by incorporating into Christian consciousness the unacknowledged experience of women. In this work, theologian Cynthia Crysdale explores the mystery of redemption through the central Christian symbol of the cross. Traditionally the cross has been understood by male theologians as redeeming humankind from sin as arrogant ambition. Yet the difficulties of understanding sin primarily in this way has been recognized for several decades. Using an approach that is analytical and anecdotal, theological and personal, Crysdale argues that by virtue of life experience people enter the drama of the cross and resurrection at different points; some through repentance seeking forgiveness, others through a couragous claiming of self-identity, seeking healing.
