"In Fierce Tenderness, Mary E. Hunt continues to chart the way from unjust, unequal power relationships to new experiences of mutuality through friendship. Employing a combination of sources such as literature, case studies, and first-person accounts that easily span the gaps across racial and religious difference, gender preference and orientation, and geographical loci, this text maps new socio-ethical and theological interpretations for friendship. Hunt [contends] that when women choose to live in right relationship, new and compelling paradigms of the holy emerge, connoting co-responsibility, mutual influence, and commitment on both sides of the divine-human equation."
-Susan Brooks Thistlewaite and Toinette M. Eugene, Chicago Theological Seminary

"In theory as well as in practice, Hunt's work begs to be taken seriously and to be taken further. To look to it [merely] for one additional chapter-friendship as a new theme--to add to a course in systematic theology, will lead to disappointment. The book is far too radical and too important for that. It risks changing the grammar of the enterprise, and it may well give rise to speech that is brand new."
-Sharon H. Ringe, Wesley Theological Seminary

"A mature and cautious celebration of the sustaining and transforming power of friendship, and good friends everywhere may be enlightened and empowered by it. What could be more useful?"
-Betty A. DeBerg, The Christian Century

"Mary Hunt has given us a new perspective, and new tools with which to build our ethics of relationships. Her work ought to be the harbinger of exciting new theological thinking on sexuality, unprecedented in its utilization of the life experiences of all people on an equal footing."
-Institute for the Study of Christianity and Sexuality Bulletin
