Endorsements:

"What a beautiful book! The wisdom within works its wonders on the landscape of the heart, revealing how deeply we are all immersed in the Wisdom we call God."
Miriam Therese Winter
Medical Mission Sister
Author of Woman Prayer, Woman Song

"Joyce Rupp has a knack for touching the reader's heart. Women will be drawn to Prayers to Sophia not only for its image of God as female and as friend, but also for the practical steps toward owning that image, making Sophia a personal companion."
Kathy Coffey
Author of Hidden Women of the Gospels and
God in the Moment: Making Every Day a Prayer

"Prayers to Sophia is the perfect companion to The Star in My Heart. Ten years later (and not a moment too soon), it is a deep, bold, evocative book of prayers to Divine Wisdom. Conscious, personal, and reminiscent of Rumi, Joyce Rupp helps open us to the Divine Feminine within us all."
Rev. Patricia E. deLong
Senior Minister
First Congregational Church, Berkley, CA

"Brothers, think of Joyce as a sister who has just returned from a courageous ten-year journey and now opens before you her personal journal. She must have been thinking of us! The feminine of God can be the Holy Midwife and juicy Life-Giver in our lives,too!"
Tim Scorer
Education Director, Naramata Centre
United Church of Canada, British Columbia

"Prayers to Sophia is an eloquent response of love to Divine Wisdom. Joyce's own vulnerability in these prayers add a beauty and a feminine voice which expresses all our longing for Divine presence as the Feminine."
Paula D'Arcy
Author of Gift of the Red Bird and Song for Sarah
