She Who Changes:
Re-imagining the Divine in the World
Carol's gift is the ability to make complex ideas seem simple and radically
new ideas seem familiar. She Who Changes is addressed to everyone who
has ever wondered about the implications of re-imagining the divine as female.
Can we re-imagine divine power as deeply related to the changing world?
Can we re-imagine creation as co-creation in which every individual from particles
of atoms to human beings--as well as Goddess/God--play a part?
Can we re-imagine the world as the body of Goddess/God?
Then we can understand the deeper meaning of images of divine power
as Goddess, God-She, Sophia, and Shekhina.
Rebirth of the Goddess:
Finding Meaning in Feminist Spirituality
combines personal experience with historical and philosophical reflections
to create a new model for embodies thinking.
Written in an accessible style, this first systematic theology of the Goddess
argues that the shift from God to Goddess signals a transformation
of Western theology, philosophy and ethics, offering the hope that we can
create a different world .(1998, Routledge)
"This clear and incisively intelligent book explores feminist
