Overview

Can we re-imagine divine power as deeply related to the changing world? Can we re-imagine the creation of the world as an on-going process of co-creation in which every individual from particles of atoms to human beings plays a part? Can we re-imagine the world as the body of Goddess/God? If we can, then we can understand the deeper meaning of female images of divine power, including Goddess, God-She, Sophia, and Shekhina. Carol Christ's gift is to make complex ideas seem simple and radically new ideas seem familiar; She Who Changes is for everyone who has ever wondered about re-imagining God as female.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Carol Christ, who is one of the brilliant foremothers of the Goddess movement, has an important new book out. She's one of the people who always most inspire me and stimulate my thinking, and who I find myself quoting and turbaning to for inspiration and clarity."—Starhawk
"She Who Changes is a gift to the world. The style is clear, passionate, and utterly compassionate, building a sturdy bridge between process theology and feminist thought that is valuable beyond calculation. After reading the book, I too will call myself a feminist process theologian."—Virginia Ramey Mollenkott, author of The Divine Feminine and Omnigender and Founding Member of the Evangelical & Ecumenical Women's Caucus
"Carol Christ sheds fresh light on the implications of Hartshorne's thought on issues that he did not himself discuss. As a man who considered himself a feminist, Hartshorne would have been delighted with Christ's interpretation and development of his thought. We Americans are urgently in need of a wider community of those who share a countercultural vision with extensive practical implications, a vision that can become a fundamental alternative to the extreme patriarchalism that now governs our national behavior. May Christ's book contribute to the emergence of this community." —John B. Cobb, Jr., Founding Member of the Center for Process Studies
