About the Author

Janet Martin Soskice is Reader in Philosophical Theology, University of Cambridge.


This book has two goals; to examine the imagery that the Bible uses for God, and to do so from a "constructive" feminist perspective, rather than one that is simply "critical". Janet Martin Soskice achieves both purposes brilliantly - not least because she expresses herself beautifully. It is rare to come across theology that reads so well. Andrew Davison, Church Times very accessible book...Soskice throws off many provocative insights...The book opens perspectives on matters of central theological importance which it will be rewarding to revisit. Fergus Kerr, The Tablet
