Books by Elizabeth Johnson

She Who Is: The Mystery of God in Feminist Theological DiscourseShe Who Is: The Mystery of God in Feminist Theological Discourse
This one I read several years ago – probably the most difficult thing I’ve ever attempted aside from text books in applied fluid dynamics (had to repeat Physical Oceanography in grad school because I never quite got all the calculus required for thorough comprehension). Also, one of the most worthwhile things I ever pushed my way through.


Truly Our Sister: A Theology of Mary in the Communion of SaintsTruly Our Sister: A Theology of Mary in the Communion of Saints

OK – finished! only took about 3 months to chew my way through this one. While many may find the ideas presented here as new, or radical, I found Elizabeth Johnson’s ideas of the meaning of the “communion of saints” to be validation of my own. I found her veiwpoint arguments for seeing Mary as our sister to be compelling – and to make me rest a bit easier when I see some of what perceive as idolotry in worship of Mary – as I realize that I am not alone in my different view of her meaning and importance to those of us finding our own way to heaven. Read it.
