Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mollenkott's story is part autobiography of her journey away from fundamentalism and toward self-acceptance as a lesbian feminist, part proclamation of the importance of liberation and diversity within the human family, part a discussion of ``interpretive communities'' with focus on the les-bi-gay community, and part theological reflection on the role of the erotic in spirituality. Mollenkott enriches her discussion with reference to John Milton's scriptural interpretation in defense of divorce for incompatibility. She also offers a comparison between the ``handmaid of the Lord'' in Luke's description of Mary and of the handmaids in Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale ( LJ 2/1/86). This latter comparison leads to themes of freedom and its power in Mollenkott's analysis, themes that support diversity, sensuousness, and the mystical. Recommended for large public libraries.
