pt. I. Unexpected women -- pt. II. Indecent/subversive women -- pt. III. Demonic/angelic women -- pt. IV. Techno bodies -- pt. V. The question of the body in literature, theology and philosophy -- pt. VI. Future bodies.

Exploring a range of subjects from the human genome project to Kierkegaard's Fear and Trembling, the poetry of Jorie Graham to feminist Christian art, the contributors pose questions around the theme 'Body and Voice'. Questions raised include: 'Who speaks for the foetus and on what basis?' 'What effect does the near-sacrifice of Isaac have on mother Sarah's body?' and 'What do embodiment and gender mean for the resurrected body and Jesus's body?'
