She Who Changes: Re-imagining the Divine in the World

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, Jul 18, 2003 - Philosophy - 277 pages

Can we re-imagine divine power as deeply related to the changing world? Can we re-imagine the creation of the world as an on-going process of co-creation in which every individual from particles of atoms to human beings plays a part? Can we re-imagine Goddess/God as the most relational of all relational beings? Can we re-imagine the world as the body of Goddess/God? If we can, then we can understand the deeper meaning of female images of divine power, including Goddess, God She, Sophia and Shekhina.
