Maid in God's Image: In Search of the Unruly Woman
In Maid in God's Image, Verena Wright explores the feminine dimension in a range of texts, including film, fiction and the gospels. In exploring the ways in which certain voices are marginalized and silenced, she seeks to alert readers to a new way of seeing, that acknowledges and values the feminine dimension as both social and spiritual resource and essential component of all human being.
