Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Ideal as a resource for group discussion and worship, the book has three parts. Part One provides a well-condensed summary of feminist theology's reclamation of the feminine face of God-Sophia or Hokmah-as a scriptually valid reference for Christ. Part Two suggests how Christ-Sophia can be revealed within life. Part Three offers a wide range of devotional pieces for different occasions that read well and celebrate the call for the racial and gender inclusiveness, based on the belief that such inclusiveness is what Christ-Sophia's liberating presence dispenses.
