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.
