The real contribution of this book is to offer an intelligent, intimate, and relevant idea of God in a time of confusion and forgetting. (Thomas Moore, author Care of the Soul.) Heather Mendel's scholarship and knowledge of religious writings combine with her deeply felt reflections and enlightened consciousness to illuminate a remarkable personal journey by a woman steeped in Jewish tradition in search of the divine feminine. (Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and The Blade.)
Synthesizing the worlds of Judaism and feminism, we discover the egalitarian paradigm that simultaneously celebrates both our individual uniqueness, and our shared commonality with every human being. Recognizing the Sacred or Divine Feminine within and without, we stand on the brink of a societal shift in consciousness that can heal our world. . .
From Rabbi Rami Shapiro:The return of the divine Mother, Hochmah, Shechina, Sophia, heralds the transformation of the human spirit from competing religious tribes to shared explorations of divine consciousness. She comes to us and through us, and every once in a while there is that rare soul among us with the capacity to help awaken us to Her presence. Heather Mendel is one of these souls and Dancing in the Footsteps of Eve is one of these awakenings. This book is a delight. . .
From Rabbi Lawrence Kushner: Autobiography, history, theology, midrash, kabbalah and, of course, feminism all seamlessly woven together into a wise and wonderful literary adventure. From ancient tradition to New Age, Heather Mendel sets a banquet table for the 21st century spiritual seeker. This is a beautiful book.See all Editorial Reviews
