In Friends of God and Prophets, Elizabeth Johnson provides a theology of the communion of saints, utilizing, ironically, women's practices of memory - "ironically" because the official list of saints is largely dominated by men, and "women's history of holiness has been neither remembered nor truthfully told." In the first part of the book, Johnson dialogues with history, gleaning clues from the past for an understanding of the communion of saints that is both faithful to tradition and promising of liberation. In the second, she offers a systematic interpretation of the symbol, connecting insights from history with insights arising from women's practices today, linking both with radical hope in God.
