Book News Few feminist philosophers would expect to find a dialogue partner in Martin Luther, but Solberg (religion, Gustavus Adolphus College) contends that Luther's theology of the cross provides a solid theological and ethical basis for a congenial conversation. The epistemology of the cross that emerges raises and responds to the essential epistemological questions of power, experience, objectivity, and accountability.
