Susan Frank Parsons is the Director of Pastoral Studies at the Margaret Beaufort Institute of Theology in Cambridge, UK. She has published many articles and a book entitled Feminism and Christian Ethics (CUP, 1996), which has been widely cited and appreciatively reviewed.


"This is a demanding but rewarding book. Dr. Parsons wants to reconstrue theological ethics by developing our critical sensitivity to the ways we are made by our cultures. That human beings are richly complex and positively creative is a key feature of what she has to say about 'gender'. This profoundly theological book centres on the virtue of hope and the transfiguration of human relationships. No crying for the moon here, but something which is a serious possibility." Ann Loades, University of Durham, UK "This work is a fine achievement. There is an impressive range of treatments, remarkable erudition, consistent clarity, and imaginative glimpses of a new future for recognizably Christian ethics. It is certain to be discussed for several years." Theology
