Identifying, illuminating and enhancing understanding of key aspects of women and girls' faith lives, The Faith Lives of Women and Girls represents a significant body of original qualitative research from practitioners and researchers across the UK. Contributors include new and upcoming researchers as well as more established feminist practical theologians. Chapters provide perspectives on different ages and stages of faith across the life cycle, from a range of different cultural and religious contexts. Diverse spiritual practices, beliefs and attachments are explored, including a variety of experiences of liminality in women’s faith lives. A range of approaches - ethnographic, oral history, action research, interview studies, case studies and documentary analysis - combine to offer a deeper understanding of women’s and girls' faith lives. As well as being of interest to researchers, this book presents resources to enhance ministry to and with women and girls in a variety of settings.

Review:

'This is an immensely valuable book for two reasons. First, it makes a serious theological contribution to the understanding and practice of qualitative research. Second, it offers a wealth of fascinating empirical data on the faith lives of women and girls. As groundbreaking work in both of these areas, the book deserves to be read widely alike by researchers and by any who care about the flourishing of healthy Christian and human communities.' Zoe Bennett, Cambridge Theological Federation and Anglia Ruskin University, UK '...covers a wide-ranging selection of topics relevant to women, including life style and theological issues... a wide and practical introduction to the whole gamut of female faith. In addition it gives a 390-reference bibliography which shows the huge breadth of this most important topic.' FutureFirst 'The content of the book is comprehensive and detailed, and deserves attention as a necessary stimulus to (particularly feminist) theologians who rarely interact with the significant discipline of childhood studies.' Modern Believing 'Very rarely have I encountered an edited collection like this with such thoughtful, powerful, and careful contributions...this volume emerges much like a good choir at the climax of a concert: with a quality of sound which is only enhanced by the number of contributors who have artfully and passionately participated.' Dr Hannah Bacon, University of Chester, UK
