Week #14 Reading Reflection Assignment Prompts
Use the reading discussion questions in the posting below this assignment to look at as you do your reading, to guide your critical engagement with the text. Then, use these prompts to write your reading reflection assignment:
** Why do the women religious thinkers referenced in this final section put "healing" at the center of their understanding of the purpose of religion?
** Why do these thinkers believe that women can benefit from religious involvement, rather than abandoning their involvement - and how (and in what ways) does this involvement improve their lives?
** In reading over the conclusion of this book, and in thinking back over the earlier material in the course, what are some of the most important ways that women have contributed to contemporary American religious understanding and practices?
** What are some of the ongoing challenges and difficulties that women will continue to face in contemporary American religion?
** As you wrap up this course, what are the most important "take away" understandings or insights that you will carry with you into your ongoing studies and/or personal religious practice?
