Chasing Sophia

Chasing Sophia

Lilian Barger

$25.99

Paperback
Praise for "Chasing Sophia" "By affirming women's ways of knowing and describing the places where women can locate wisdom (and thus connect with Jesus), Barger simultaneously explores an ancient Christian wisdom tradition and argues that Christianity can speak to women today." --"Publishers Weekly" "Women and men, open-minded evangelicals, mainline Protestant and Roman Catholic Christians, participants in emerging churches and people who have left the church because of its patriarchy and chauvinism--all will find Chasing Sophia to be a truly helpful and very worthwhile read. It's a balanced, warm, human, insightful, intelligent, and deeply theological engagement with three important and interrelated subjects: Jesus, wisdom, and women. I enjoyed and benefited from this fine book by a wise and gifted author, Lilian Calles Barger." --Brian McLaren, author/activist (brianmclaren.net) "I know many women who have left the church for Goddess worship and Wicca, or who have abandoned the Bible for the Gospel According to Mary. I will be giving every one of them a copy of this book, which provocatively suggests that the Christian story can address women's longings for a spirituality that is at once feminine and Christian." --Lauren F. Winner, author, "Real Sex and Girl Meets God" "Lilian Calles Barger offers a poignant and highly readable account of her Christian feminist spirituality. With depth of insight she integrates reflections on her personal life experiences with her account of authentic Christianity in contemporary times." --Dr. Claire L. Sahlin, director, Women's Studies, Texas Woman's University

- Publisher Women are looking for new ways to know themselves and to connect with God, two forms of knowledge that are intrinsically linked. Many have left traditional religion in frustration that it didn't reflect their real lives, turning instead to alternative spiritualities that purport to honor women's experience. In this post-feminist interpretation of Christianity, Lilian Calles Barger challenges both Christian tradition and feminist trends in spirituality to provide a fresh and inspiring look at divine wisdom, opening women's awareness to the voice of God in the world.
