This assemblage of feminist theologies represents a series of vital entanglements. Chapters are written from different cultures, geographies and discourses and brought together around themes as specific and wide-ranging as immigration detention, hate crime, discrimination, rites of marriage and partnership, and artistic and religious imagination. The contributors variously echo, celebrate, question and contradict each other. Despite the complexity and allied as they are with liberation, decolonial, ecological, queer and other theologies, these perspectives seek not only to confront and resist the problems, oppressions, and omissions of hegemonic theologies but also to realize better worlds.

A very timely and necessary volume, Feminist Theologies: Interstices and Fractures is not a book to ignore. Each chapter invites new, refreshing and creative conversations (a polyvocal one) on gender justice and feminist theology. Descriptors that sum up the contributions include provocative, imaginative, expansive, persistent, unsettling, wild, uncontainable, beyond prescribed limits — and much more. These descriptors, however, do not do justice to the creative working of intersections, especially in conversation with the arts and the artistic, plunging into the cracks and gaps of theological interstices to unearth, draw on, and connect with life flourishing resilience and wisdom. Here is excellent work that offers wings, colours, tempos, and adventure in God-talk in Australia and beyond. - Michael N. Jagessar, Secretary for Europe and the Caribbean, Council for World Mission, London, UK

This welcome and innovative collection is for those who want to take a deep dive into the scholarship of an international group of renown voices in feminist theology. The gifted scholars included in Feminist Theology: Interstices and Fractures write passionately and meticulously on a wide range of issues and come together from their diverse social locations in a celebration of polyvocal feminist wisdom. These impressive essays offer a wealth of insights and opportunities for rigorous reflection. Lively and accessible, this book provides a wealth of insights with depth and clarity. Adaptable for personal and classroom use, this collection will be relevant for years to come. - Sheryl A. Kujawa-Holbrook, Claremont School of Theology

This book presents a rich dialogue on social issues and doctrines between Australian authors and theologians and scholars from other social contexts. Combining personal narratives and theological insights, texts and arts, laments and visions, this interdisciplinary volume clearly demonstrates why feminist theology from the Pacific matters. I highly recommend it. - Kwok Pui-lan, Candler School of Theology, Emory University

Theology from a distinctive location: many voices from a splendid mix of identities, perspectives, shifts in cultures and commitments, in dialogue with one another, focused on acutely problematic circumstances yet fizzing with hope! Theology both for now and a better future! - Ann Loades, University of St Andrews
