Overview

In this book, Carl Raschke and Susan Doughty Raschke argue that God's own self-revelation is neither exclusively male nor female but both at once. With this self-revelation of the "two in one," the authors contend that the Scriptures are actually a radical proclamation of gender equality. Basing their findings on historical, anthropological, and biblical scholarship, they make a compelling argument that this awareness of God's dual nature was widely accepted and understood in the early years of Christianity but was intentionally obscured through the ages.

this is an interesting insight to the true nature of God. I recommend it highly. It reminds me of John Paul I - the 33-day pope who was murdered in the Vatican in 1978. In his last proclamation the day before he was found dead, he told a public audience, 'God is more our Mother than She is our Father' - a sitting pope who questioned the age-old assumptiion that God is a Man.
