Overview

Carl Raschke and Susan Doughty Raschke argue that God's own self-revelation is neither exclusively male nor exclusively 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 book is an essential starting point for the inquiry into the nature of God and creation. Readers will find resources from within the Christian tradition that aid in the understanding of both the male and the female sides of God.

    interesting insight

    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.
