Historian and radical religious scholar Uta Ranke-Heinemann tells the story of the Church's betrayal of women, its hierarchical struggles, and the dissolution of the real message of Jesus. Made to leave her teaching position as professor of Catholic theology at the University of Essen for denying the virgin birth, she has become an outspoken critic of an institution that has allegedly sought to censor her research and suppress her contributions. Through this book, she seeks to rid Christian faith of the inauthentic and apparently sexist cultural baggage that she claims hinders a true encounter with the revolutionary message of Jesus.
