Format: Paperback
This book and its successor, Weaving the Visions, are the keystones of my library of feminist religious studies. The contributors expose us to feminist critiques of religion from many perspectives and backgrounds. This book is an uplifting source of inspiration for men and women alike. At the same time, it remains a pinnacle of scholarship in its field. I would highly recommend it to anyone with even a remote interest in feminist religious thought!

27 of 30 people found the following review helpful By A. Y. Smittle on July 20, 2001
Format: Paperback
I was introduced to this book in a feminist spirituality class, taught by a methodist (woman) minister. This and its sequel, Weaving the Visions, helped change my spiritual life. It affirmed the feminine face of God for me, and it did help me to know there are others out there seeking the Femininity of God. That we all have our own, bizarre path to the Divine One; be it one sex or another. This book opens up to a world of feminist thought and ritual; how different feminists, scholars and religious leaders experience divinity and come to terms with it. There are Christians, Jews and Pagans here. An excerpt from "The Color Purple" which Christ seems to favor in other publications. Truly a wonderful work of art for women. A feminist must have.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Tiffany Johnson on March 15, 2010
Format: Paperback
Womanspirit Rising is an important book for anyone looking to explore religion outside of the traditional patriarchal understanding. It provides a new perspective and new options for the experience of religion, spirituality, and the divine, particularly for women who have experienced isolation or oppression in their religious tradition. The volume brings to attention the realities of not so long ago when women were absent or ignored in the study of religion, within the context of academia and in the larger realm of society. The essays contained in this volume are written by many of the most important female religious scholars including Mary Daly, Rosemary Radford Reuther, Phyllis Trible, Judith Plaskow, and Carol P. Christ. These women, along with many other contributors, wish to challenge the traditions of Jewish and Christian religious traditions and the burden of inferiority of women that has emerged from and been sustained by them.
The contributing authors vary on their approach to the equality of women (whether they should be equal to men or be elevated above them), the anthropomorphic language of god/ess, whether or not religious understanding can be restored to a place where women can find liberation and value, and the relationship between women and nature. Thankfully, the editors allow these differences to be held in tension within the volume. This provides a plethora of language to surround and begin to define the importance of women's experiences within the realm of religious understanding. I found healing in the openness for religious expression in new terms: those according to women and their experiences.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jason Bachand on January 8, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is quite simply an essential buy for the feminist or neophyte feminist theologian. Though significant advances have been made in the field since the time of the book's first publication, the articles offer a sample of the diversity of feminist thought - from radical deconstructionists like Mary Daly to constructive theologians such as Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza. I highly recommend this text as a good point of departure for those who think theology is necessarily patriarchal and oppressive (despite the fact that it often is).
