Never Wholly Other

This chapter provides an overview of feminist contributions to theology of religions, including those of Ruether, Suchocki, Plaskow, McCarthy, King, Gross, Hill Fletcher, Kwok, and McGarvey. It aims to identify various elements of these feminist approaches that are consistent with the conception of human difference drawn from Muslim women interpreters of the Qurʾān. This chapter probes the ways various feminist theologians have attempted to extend their methods, sources, and norms to the topic of religious diversity, and it critically co-opts aspects of their approaches, including their critiques of theology of religions and the typology of exclusivism, inclusivism, and pluralism, and their endeavor to account for and value religious sameness and religious difference without resorting to hierarchical evaluation.

Keywords:   Feminist theologians, Theology of religions, Religious sameness, Religious difference, Ruether, Hill Fletcher, Exclusivism, Inclusivism, Pluralism, Hierarchical evaluation
