  • Winner of the Louisville Grawemeyer Award in Religion. With a voice at once prophetic, poetic, and scholarly, Johnson shows how the traditional understanding of God as male can make room for the feminine God, and how the experience of women everywhere enriches our view of God and our spiritual lives. This classic explains what feminist theology is and how can we rediscover the feminine God within the Christian tradition.

    Johnson offers the most solidly based case to date for using womens experiences and female images to describe the Christian experience of God. Using historical references from the Cappadocians to Kasper and Moltmann and sensitive to the experiences of women today, Johnson shows how feminist language about God belongs in our pulpits and at our altars.

    As perhaps the best book of feminist theology to date, She Who Is is at once thoroughly orthodox, grounded in classical Christian thought, liberatingly contemporary, and rooted in womens experience. Johnson reviews the history of Christian language about God and explains the need for feminist language about God, thereby providing background for nontheologians. She then develops an inclusive and creative Christian spiritual doctrine. Highly recommended for all collections serving educated lay readers, theologians, and clergy.
