Muslima Theology: The Voices of Muslim Women Theologians, edited by Ednan Aslan, Marcia Hermansen, and Elif Medeni (Wiener Islamstudien, 3), (Frankfurt am Main: Peter Lang, 2013), 340 pp., ISBN 978-3-631-62899-7, €48.40 / $62.95 (hb)

(First paragraph)

At first glance, the title Muslima Theology: The Voices of Muslim Women Theologians emphasizes that female Muslim theologians have had their say: different voices discuss female-related issues from a theological perspective. The title Muslima Theology itself appears to avoid association with the “feminist” genre of Christian Theology. One glance at the table of contents is enough to recognize that this anthology explicitly addresses women’s issues and questions from an Islamic and theological viewpoint instead of formulating or stating theological positions, which do not solely relate to female matters.
