Overview

IN SEARCH OF THE CHRIST-SOPHIA presents powerful biblical and theological support for a Divine Feminine image buried in Christianity. The popularity of THE DA VINCI CODE demonstrates the widespread hunger for the lost Sacred Feminine. This book resurrects Sophia (Wisdom) and connects Her to Jesus Christ. Aldredge-Clanton combines theological schoalrship with pastoral sensitivity to demonstrate that a christology inclusive of both female and male is vital to liberation and equality. She uncovers the New Testament links between Christ and Wisdom (Sophia), a feminine symbol of Deity in the Hebrew Scriptures. She applies the theology of Christ-Sophia to contemporary spirituality, social justice ministry, and the restructuring of the Christian community. This book also contains services, prayers, litanies, reflections, and songs that can be used for personal meditaiton or communal worship.With a clear and concise style accessible to general readers and theology students, IN SEARCH OF THE CHRIST-SOPHIA challenges individuals and churches to bring liberation through the inclusion of the Divine Feminine.

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. (Nov.)
