"The Goddess Revival is a key to understanding the theological background to the controversial Re-Imagining '93 conference that showcased radical feminist approaches to such subjects as God's uniqueness, transcendence, and gender identity in Scripture." "This comprehensive study of goddess spirituality examines the roots of a movement that has become a force to be reckoned with." "The contributors to The Goddess Revival define the movement, analyze whether it can be described as "Christian," and compare the God of Scripture to this goddess concept." "The authors further compare goddess feminism with pantheistic divinities and the occult. They are empathetic to some goals within Christian feminism. As Hailson points out, "Our history has been a history of pendulum swings. As the pendulum swings to the feminine, the church will face a challenge that it must finally meet: how to affirm that both men and women are made in the image of God.""--BOOK JACKET.
