    Challenging Traditional Thought

    This book is excellent! It challenges many traditional Christian views of God. Elizabeth is a great author!

    Mental floss

    I confess I am in way over my head with this book; it's quite scholarly. However, I was so intrigued by the whole idea of 'feminist theology' that I had to pick it up. I generally dislike anything that's been tagged 'feminist' but this book is so very well written and researched, I'm proud to have it in my library. It truly is empowering to have someone so literate and intelligent setting forth things that have crossed the minds of women for millenia. There's no ranting, no whining, just clean, simple, 'You know, there is another way to look at this...'
