“In this dazzling hybrid of history, biography, and theology, Kristin DuMez rekindles our interest in a path-breaking woman — Katharine Bushnell — whose sprawling work on behalf of Christian feminism spanned decades, traversed boundaries, shattered categories, and covered the globe. With judiciousness and a lively pen, DuMez makes it perfectly clear why this crusading reformer, written off or forgotten as a product of an antiquated Victorian past, must be re-centered in our histories and current renderings of modern Christianity and of modern America itself.”
