These essays in honor of Professor Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza come from international feminist scholars indebted to her ground-breaking achievements in the areas of biblical studies, feminist thought and social justice. The contributors represent a wide variety of backgrounds, commitments, methodologies, talents and interests. They are united here by their appreciation for Schussler Fiorenza as a scholar, teacher, mentor, colleague and friend. The spectrum is full of vitality, with important convergences and intersections. It exemplifies what Schussler Fiorenza has called 'critical collaboration': women thinking together and creating together. This Festschrift is unique in that it celebrates the work of women in the field.

On the Cutting Edge is indexed in H.W. Wilson's Essay and General Literature Index.

This book is aptly titled: the essays it contains are cutting edge in many respects and appropriately dedicated to a cutting edge feminist biblical scholar, Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza. A collection of fourteen essays written by American and international scholars in critical collaboration on feminist biblical interpretation, this diverse and scholarly book pays tribute to Schussler Fiorenza by expanding upon her thoughts, by diverging from them, by using her ideas to develop new avenues of thought all expressions of appreciation and gratitude for the critical theory she has developed. Review of Biblical Literature, July 2004 "Stronger than many an edited volume, the book is unified by Elisabeth's underlying presence. It is also remarkably consistent in the quality of its contributions despite the diversity of its content and its contributors, their social locations, motivations, and precise expertise. In my opinion, the book is well worth a read and would be a valuable contribution to a Women's Studies or a Women and Religion seminar." -Alice L. Laffey, Horizons, Vol. 34, No. 2, Fall 2007 --Sanford Lakoff
