It is possible to reinterpret the biblical portrayal of motherhood so that it no longer perpetuates the subordination of women? Responding to a perceived conflict between feminism and theology, feminist theologian Cristina Grenholm blends systematic theology, gender studies, and biblical interpretation to construct a nontraditional understanding of motherhood in the Bible. Grenholms innovative approach revisits the biblical figure of Mary whom she calls a theological challenge in our time with a view to analyzing, critiquing, and revising the traditional Christian understanding of motherhood and maternal love.
