9780824505653: The Divine Feminine: The Biblical Imagery of God As Female

Endorsements: "A calm, well-balanced, carefully prepared book. . . . Excellent for adult Bible discussion groups, for occasional sermons, for suggesting ways of inclusive language. This book teaches and directs without antagonizing." --The Bible Today "A persuasive book, useful for personal reflection and group discussion, and ideal for gift-giving." --Daughters of Sarah "This is no dry erudite volume. It rubs salve in personal wounds inflicted by centuries of biblical misreading." --Sojourners "The book reflects careful research; it is written in a style that will appeal to those interested in the implications of biblical research but without the time or inclination to follow the involved discussions of biblical scholarship." --National Catholic Reporter

About the Author:

Virginia Ramey Mollenkott is the author or co-author of 13 books, including several on women and religion. She is a winner of the Lambda Literary Award and has published numerous essays on literary topics.

In 1978, Virginia co-authored Is The Homosexual My Neighbor? A Positive Christian View with Letha Dawson Scanzoni. After being expanded and updated in 1994, this ground-breaking work still stands as one of the most informative and thorough explorations of the topic. Sensuous Spirituality, Dr. Mollenkott's 1992 book (revised and updated in 2008), examines the integration of sexuality and spirituality, social activism and personal peace.

Dr. Virginia Ramey Mollenkott has lectured widely on lesbian, gay, and bisexual rights and has also been active in the transgender cause, authoring Omnigender (revised and updated version published in 2007), and serving as co-author of Transgender Journeys (2003).

"All of her writings may be subsumed under the theme of oneness, which Mollenkott variously describes as an 'organic wholeness' and a 'transcendental integrative vision.' The emphasis is on seeing God in all things and serving God in all activities, integration of the human personality around a unifying center, and awareness of humanity's interdependence."
