      Speaking of hermeneutics of suspicion, here are two models:

      Liberation Methodology of Fiorenza:
      1. Suspicion
      A. Assume the Bible to be a text that is oppressive and
      serves patriarchy.

      2. Rememberance
      A. Those women who struggle in patriarchal structures can
      be reconstructed in patriarchal texts

      3. Proclaimation
      A. Grows from Rememberance
      B. Addressed to today's believers
      C. Removes oppressive texts of scripture from use in the
      community
      D. Draw on texts that transcend a patriarchal context

      4. Creative Actualization
      A. Artistic expression as an active engagement for women's
      liberation.
      1. Narratives
      2. Rituals


      Liberation methodology of Soelle:
      1. Praxis: "Who is victimized?"
      2. Analysis: "Who profits?"
      3. Meditation: "To remember"
      4. Renewed Praxis: "To dream and hope"
