Inclusive Language in the Church

Nancy A Hardesty

$28.99

Paperback
114 pages

- Publisher INCLUSIVE LANGUAGE IN THE CHURCH is a good introduction to questions about language use today. Issues in the current debate are addressed fairly. This is not a battle cry for the feminist movement but rather a solid introduction to the whole discussion. Hardesty hopes to convince us that inclusive language is appropriate in Christian theology and worship. Nancy Hardesty maintains that the use of inclusive language goes to the very heart of the gospel. She examines biblical references to God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and human beings. From these she argues that God speaks through Scripture and shows how the metaphors for God and various descriptions of God speak to a variety of human needs.^
