A Certain Creative Recklessness: Ronald Preston and Christian Feminist Ethics

Studies in Christian Ethics 17 (2):140-147 (2004)

Ronald Preston wrote little of feminism, and feminism appears to have ignored Preston. There is much, however, in Preston's work which feminists would have found sympathetic, as well as some areas for acute disagreement. This article discusses what Preston did write about feminism, and goes on to examine areas of common approach: the hermeneutic of suspicion, social ethics, and a priori commitments. It also, briefly, discusses areas of disagreement: common consensus, universalism, and eschatological realism. It ends with the question of why Preston did not engage more fully with the radical changes in the position of women which occurred during his lifetime
