More About the Author

You might think that because I have a Master of Divinity degree, am ordained, work as a spiritual director, and am the former wife of a pastor that I have answers about God, an unshakeable faith, and am a devout church-attendee. You'd be mistaken.

I talk about faith because I doubt. I talk about God because I hope. And I create sacred spaces for conversation because I believe that women are hungry for ways to craft and experience a spirituality (and a God) that is uniquely, profoundly theirs.

And I write...like a "poet on a practical mission; like a feminist with faith."

I am not a religious person--and before I'd worked with and read Ronna's work, I'd've even challenged you on "spiritual". Ronna has a way of making practical the political and making political the field of personal, feminine spiritualism that sometimes gets vague and incense-y. I deeply appreciate the way she shares personally, without leaving me feeling heavy--or that I've added her burdens to mine. She is a pundit of a spiritual movement which I think is accessible to more of us and a truly healing path. I'm so thankful for her work. Check it out and see what you think.

I wasn't really sure what to expect when I purchased this book, but after following Ronna for some time I decided it was worth it and it was. A Feminist with Faith deals with the idea of a God from a feminist perspective that has been silenced for too long. We as women have a voice, we have faith and we need to use that voice to express our faith. The exercises are excellent and force you to be honest with yourself. The books helps you understand how our faith has been shaped by some very negative views and how we as women have the power to change it. A very empowering and uplifting book!

We need more women like Ronna. The wounded I stands up in self confidence and believes. The end of pragmatism , the end of a long history of women in the shadow of religion starts now. Read this and say :I: and God will listen.

Ronna Detrick blasts past the cliches about "feminism" and "faith" to show you the path of integration. A thoughtful, female-oriented faith need not separate us from tradition, only enhance our connection to it. Curiosity and inquiry need not lead us to heresy but to our own self-actualization.

This book is a whirlwind--yet practical--tour of what it means to consider your faith from the perspective of femaleness and what it means to consider your femaleness from a perspective of faith.

It's especially good for introducing feminist theology to someone new to the idea.
