Women are looking for new ways to know themselves and to connect with God, two forms of knowledge that are intrinsically linked. Many have left traditional religion in frustration that it didn't reflect their real lives, turning instead to alternative spiritualities that purport to honor women's experience. In this post-feminist interpretation of Christianity, Lilian Calles Barger challenges both Christian tradition and feminist trends in spirituality to provide a fresh and inspiring look at divine wisdom, opening women's awareness to the voice of God in the world.

Review: Chasing Sophia: Reclaiming the Lost Wisdom of Jesus

User Review  - Connie Backus-yoder - Goodreads

I expected more concrete information on Sophia. What I got was subjective conversations about the relevance of women's history and lives. Many things discussed were and still are a part of my own experience. Good book for me to consider. Read full review
