Grace of Difference: A Canadian Feminist Theological Ethic

Legge, Marilyn J.


Marion J. Legge addresses theological ethics from the context of Canadian women, especially the experience of marginalized women in Canada. Beginning with a critical reassessment of Canadian Radical Christianity, she argues that approaches which center on questions of economic justice have nevertheless overlooked the day-to-day economic realities of Canadian women. Legge develops a reformulated critical theory of culture that, though it emphasizes difference, avoids premature abstraction and misplaced generalizations. She seeks a voice to articulate the theological and ethical dimensions of women's experience in the texts of three Canadian novels: Beatrice Cullen’s In Search of April Raintree, Margaret Laurence’s The Diviners, and Joy Kogawa’s Obasan.
