This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book begins by interrogating the relations between literature and theology as they are presented in contemporary theological thinking. Both feminist politics and post-structuralist theory have alerted us to the disruptive potential of the repressed feminine partner within the binary system which characterises Western culture. There is instability in the coupling of literature and theology, which reflects a changing social and symbolic order. The book highlights a number of issues that will characterise feminist religious reading. The most important of these is a re-evaluation of the significance of literary texts and their power to challenge theological thinking. The book serves as an open invitation for other women to bring many differing perspectives to their theological engagements with literature.
