This chapter presents some concluding thoughts. It argues that women’s experience of exclusion and oppression truly intensifies the ethical and the political dimension of a feminist theology of the cross. Without simply reducing Christ’s significance to that of a moral example, it is important that his disciples allow his example to encourage them to follow in his footsteps. By stressing the close connection between theology and ethics, we find support in Luther’s understanding of Christians being called to be “Christ to one another”.

Keywords:   women, feminist theology, theology of the cross, Luther, Christians
