Asks what sorts and sources of knowing we should consider compelling as we seek to live morally responsible lives. Contends that Martin Luther's theology of the cross provides a solid theological and ethical basis for a surprisingly congenial conversation with feminist thought and scholarship on these issues.

Book News
Few feminist philosophers would expect to find a dialogue partner in Martin Luther, but Solberg (religion, Gustavus Adolphus College) contends that Luther's theology of the cross provides a solid theological and ethical basis for a congenial conversation. The epistemology of the cross that emerges raises and responds to the essential epistemological questions of power, experience, objectivity, and accountability. Solberg describes the movement from lived experience to compelling knowledge seeing what is the case, recognizing one's implication in it, and responding accountably.
