The Feminine Face of God


The Feminine Face of God

Now Reading...

 Running the gamut from Anglicanism to Zen, psychologist Anderson and consultant Hopkins present an uncritical examination of uniquely feminine aspects of faith. Offering a complex, densely layered montage, based on extensive interviews with over one hundred women--each of whom has "found her own direct relationship with the divine or the real''- -the authors seek to extend studies positing a distinctly feminine moral development to a consideration of "the way women experience the sacred in their lives." Included are ministers, rabbis, priests, nuns, and former nuns (both Christian and Vedantic), spiritual healers, tribal elders, and contemplatives, working variously as therapists, teachers, writers, artists, and social activists, and all meeting a basic requirement of striving to "embody" their beliefs "in everyday life.'" Most compelling within this spiritual supermarket are several detailed looks at individual quests...~~Kirkus Review

  2. Looks like a good book. It's not easy finding a lot of biblical women in the bible. Most of the focus are on the men's stories.

  3. Sounds interesting. I'll need to add it to my list. Currently reading three different books for various book discussions. Need to wrap a couple up before diving into a new book.

Thanks so much for coming to visit and sharing your thoughts! Let me know where you are and I'll come say hello at your place next.

By the way, I know that sometimes my readers disagree with what I say here and I wanted to let you know that not only is it okay with me if you happen to as well, but you also are welcome to tell me so, as long as you do so kindly.

Have a great day!
