    1. Daly was popular at seminary, but I didn't get around to reading her until years later. I was visiting an old high school friend in Springfield, Vermont, had finished the book I'd brought along for the trip and asked his wife for recommendations from their substantial library. She suggested Daly.If one defines "feminism" as the belief that everyone should have the same rights and opportunities, then pretty much everyone is a feminist, even some people who would reject the label. A number of youn [...]





    2. I read this after I was getting over the love of my life. I agree with Carl Jung's quote that drugs and alcohol are a low level search for God. I've always been a seeker. So I read this trying to get over my lusts and find a God I could believe in.


    3. This book is important. I think even those Christians who reject her ungendering of God (as I ultimately do) cannot fail to acknowledge what she says: "By making God man, we make man God."This is certainly how it has played out historically.I love the ardor and anger of this book.



    4. This book is a classic in feminist religious study. Daly does not pull any punches, and she skewers religion, politics, and every institution of our culture. I agree with most of what she says, and while I see that things are better in some ways than when she wrote the book in 1973, there are plenty of areas where things are just as bad if not worse.Daly calls upon women and forward thinking men to redefine religion. She makes the excellent point that it's not by simply calling God "Goddess" or [...]


    5. *2.5 stars*I had a difficult time rating this book. Daly makes some intriguing insights, but also often throws the proverbial baby out with the bathwater.I'm glad to have read her book (i.e she wraps up one on-going conversation in just 3 sentences) but I'm also curious as to what conclusions later feminist scholars have reached, on the place of the church especially.



    6. 10/27/16, first impression: I realize this could be my patriarchy or male bias or whatever, but this feels like an adventure in burning down the house because a few rooms are pretty messed up. I'm much more persuaded by feminist theology that is more constructive and generous (i.e. She Who Is by Elizabeth Johnson) than a project that is purely deconstructive (which, really, this is how I feel about all thought, I have little patience for projects that find nothing good or positive to argue for). [...]


    7. ---Read this and reviews of other classics in Western Philosophy on the History page of BestPhilosophyBooks (athinkPhilosophy Production).---Mary Daly, radical feminist philosopher and theologist, has been a controversial figure both inside and outside of feminist philosophy. Nonetheless, she has inspired countless women to think deeply about spirituality and the link between spirituality, sexuality, and gender based oppressions. In Beyond God the Father: Toward a Philosophy of Women's Liberatio [...]


    8. I wish I had taken notes on this book as I went through it because there are definitely plenty of things to talk about once you finish this. Having met her a year or two before she died, I knew it was a once in a life time chance to see her speak and pick up a book. Most of my friends picked up her last book, but I was far more interested in this one dealing with religion and I'm glad I picked it up and got it signed. There were plenty if things that were eye opening and there were plenty of thi [...]


    9. I won't claim to have finished this, but did become reasonably acquainted with the contents. This is a historic (early 1970s)feminist look at theology. Strong statements reflect the passion of those times insisting that everyone, but women in particular, question the words they use and the actions they live by as they think about God, about culture and society, and ourselves. This is an author who emphasizes words by capitalizing, underlining, separating, etc. so there is strong notation include [...]


    10. Deeply thought-provoking. She begins from the assumption that theology itself, and the Church itself, are corrupted by misogyny not only in form but also in principle. From there, she makes a full critique and describes her vision of a way forward, out of patriarchal religion.


    11. I must say that as a re-read I'm enjoying this more the second time around. Interesting perspective that Daly creates.






    12. great book i wish all my friends reading this book before three years ago i read it all and i like it much <3



    13. I am so glad I read this and anything that didn't resound with me makes sense when I see that this book is in fact older than me!Daly has an angry, uncompromising tone that will not sit well with all readers but apart from occasionally seeming to go "too far" mainly validated and emboldened me (which is something I really need). She has been accused of essentialism but I didn't find it necessary to read this book that way, I rather think that post-structuralist insights can be slotted into Daly' [...]


    14. The book is a good source on the early days of feminist theology, when it was far from clear what shape and form the new academic discipline would take in the coming decades. Daly's strand of theological thought has since become a minority standpoint, and already by this book it isn't difficult to see why. I'm tempted to say Daly was too radical in her deconstruction of traditional theology, but that wouldn't be fair to her project. If radicalism implies return to the roots, that's not what Daly [...]


    15. Fabulous stuff if you are ready for it. Very radical, thought provoking, no holes barred, and full of righteous anger. Powerful. Not for the faint of heart. If you read "Dissident Daughter" and were just fine with it and didn't bat an eye, you are ready for Daly. If you are new to feminist theology or feeling a little wobbly, you might want to try something a little more gentle first, like Elizabeth Johnson's She Who Is.


    16. I remember this being radical when I read it and I remember liking it, but the only thing I truly remember is that in the framework of Liberation theology in which the oppressed can identify with Jesus, because he was oppressed. He lived in an occupied country, was a member of the poor working class, vilified by his own people. Daly wrote that there is one way Jesus could not identify. He was not a woman and in no way could identify the plight of being a woman.


    17. I have to be honest with my rating. Maybe it's just not my style of book. And I have to add that to my "it was okay" two-star rating that this is no way a reflection on the theologies and ideas Daly is presenting -- I'm mostly on board with those. But as for presentation, I couldn't finish the book and stopped about a chapter and a half early.


    18. read this sophomore year of college in philosophy class. it was the first time i saw the W in woman capitalized in every sentence.


    19. Introduced to Mary Daly by a fellow RA while we were students at Boston College. This is one of her earlier works which is easier to understand prior to her philosophy evolving.
