Introducing Feminist Images of God

M Grey

$42.99

Paperback
Encouraging a range of inclusive, pluralist expressions in which women experience the Divine power, often in the figure of Sophia, the divine Wisdom. This book is an introduction to recent thinking on, and experience of the Divine, reflecting the work of women from diverse contexts. Early attemps to move beyond the restriction of God-language to 'Father' language and to open up the possibilities of a more inclusive way of praying have led to a richness and variety of experiences of God and the world of the sacred. God experienced in the struggle for justice is one such area. While similarities and connections are shown between, for example, Jewish, womanist, and Latin American women, their distinctiveness and diversity is respected. Women's experience of God does not flinch from ambiguity and tragedy; so long as the figure of Sophia, Wisdom, integrates new dimensions of experience the infinite depths of the Divine Mystery are still to be plumbed.
