From there, she begins to explore other traditions, how to think outside the patriarchal 'box' and how to connect with what, for her, constitutes what I suppose you might call 'feminine spirit.' It's a journey of months and years.
Her writing voice is both intimate and clear. Very enjoyable to read. I found myself not wanting to set down the book, or staying up just a little too late with it...always a good indication.
I recommend this book to anybody, male or female (but perhaps more to women), who have ever wondered why there are NO goddesses in our churches. Why there are no culturally common female religious figures. Why it's ok to have and worship divine males...but not divine females...why women appear to be invisible in religion or at best Oscar-for-Best-Supporting-Actress types. And how, if you are invisible in that sphere... you have no cache in a more tangible way.
I also recommend it to anybody who thinks he/she will be offended by it, because as other reviewers have noted, it's a gracious exploration of one woman's truth--not rage--and as such is instructive and interesting. It's not at all preachy. Not ranting. Just...like sitting with a good friend over coffee.
I also recommend it because the reactions of her own (very religious) husband are also worth consideration.
And I just want to add - this book is not an exhaustive how-to, it's a memoir of her journey. Read it as such. I feel that a lot of people writing reviews on this book completely missed the point.
