dc.description.abstractTraditional Christian theology is grounded in historical scriptures and teachings that use gendered language when referring God. This gives rise to the use of male pronouns and gender descriptions of “God” in Christianity. Feminist theology provides a framework to reconcile these gendered philosophical foundations with a feminist worldview, using inclusive language as a primary tool. The author conducted interviews with five female spiritual intellectuals, each from a different denomination of Christianity, to understand their individual spiritual journeys to a feminist theology and to determine how they use inclusive language in their ministries. Analysis of the interviews reveals that these women share a belief in intense personal reflection as a catalyst for spiritual growth. Balance, patience and good judgment are necessary when introducing inclusive language to a congregation.en
