About the Author:

Richard Grigg is Professor of Religious Studies at Sacred Heart University and the author of several books, including most recently, When God Becomes Goddess: The Transformation of American Religion.

Review:

This is an intelligently conceived, carefully argued, and well-written book. It is a christology for the new millennium, a work that treats the traditional issues, while vigorously responding to the challenges of feminist and liberation theologies, and recasting theology in a global, cross-cultural context. The book is philosophically and theologically sophisticated, so that it will be taken seriously by academic specialists, but the combination of its readability and its concern for big issues should attract a wide general audience. Michael L. Raposa, author of Boredom and the Religious Imagination"
