Pressestimmen

In a sensitive and empathic study, Campbell (Colby) examines candid autobiographical writings of selected Roman Catholic women who have departed from the institutional church. These exit narratives explore women's strategies of religious self-representation of flight, escape, and crossing over, complete with internal cracks and disjunctures, rifts and ruptures. These women--Monica Baldwin, Antonia White, Mary McCarthy, Mary Gordon, Mary Daly, Karen Armstrong, Barbara Ferraro, Patricia Hussey, and Patricia Hampl--were all deeply shaped by their early commitments to the Church; they also found themselves isolated, marginalized, and mostly liberated as they discovered their own religious meanings and unleashed their passionate, dissenting, subversive voices. Some never went back to the organized Church; some went elsewhere; some returned; some moved back and forth across the boundary. In all cases, they spoke in dramatic ways about their spiritual journeys. Campbell highlights these neglected flight narratives in order to inspire and empower women who find themselves tempted to leave their proper, prescribed spaces and duties. This is a refreshing and lively book for anyone interested in the transformations of women struggling with institutional religion. Summing Up: Highly recommended. General readers, lower-level undergraduates, and professionals/practitioners.--P. K. Steinfeld, Buena Vista University"Choice" (01/01/2004)
