"Christie Neuger gives us a breathtaking and prophetic view of the often invisable social, cultural, and systemic forces that affect women's life stories. Counseling Women offers a much-needed narrative approach to pastoral care and brief counseling that is grounded in the feminist theological commitments of empowerment, justice, grace, and interdependency. An important contribution!"
— Pamela Cooper-White, author of The Cry of Tamar
"Offering a new feminist paradigm for radical, effective, and empowering counseling for women, Neuger contends that pastors must take up the challenge of pastoral counseling. She sees this especially needed in light of the revolutionary pastoral implications of gender studies and feminist theology, and the continuing personal and social effects of sexism. Her hope is to help counselors aid women in resisting and transforming the negative effects of a woman-unfriendly culture, reclaiming their stories and lives."
