They wrote in the Preface to the original (1979) edition of this book, "In 1972 and 1973, we began to teach courses on women and religion. Those early years were a struggle because there were so few sources... we and our students were frustrated by the overwhelmingly negative picture of religion that emerged... we wanted also to show our students that religion could be reconstructed or recreated to speak to the experiences of women."
Here are some additional quotations from the book:
"For the temptations of woman as woman are not the same as the temptations of man as man, and the specifically feminine forms of sin... have a quality which can never be encompassed by such terms as 'pride' and 'will-to-power.'" (Pg. 37)
"The women's movement will present a growing threat to patriarchal religion less by attacking it than by simply leaving it behind." (Pg. 57)
"And while it is true that Catholics revere Mary as the mother of Jesus, she cannot be identified as divine in her own right: if she is 'mother of God,' she is not 'God the Mother' on an equal footing with God the Father." (Pg. 107-108)
"To affirm that Christian faith and theology are not inherently patriarchal and sexist and, at the same time, to maintain that Christian theology and the Christian churches are guily of the sin of sexism is the task of feminist theology." (Pg. 145)
"If we do not mean that God is male when we use masculine pronouns and imagery, then why should there be any objections to using female pronouns and imagery as well?" (Pg. 170-171)
"(F)emale God language is especially important in the Jewish context because so much of the Jewish religious enterprise involves talking, not about God, but TO God." (Pg. 172)
"Witchcraft today, is a kaleidoscope of diverse traditions, rituals, theologies and structures. But underneath the varying forms is a basic orientation common to all the craft." (Pg. 262-263)
The contributing authors vary on their approach to the equality of women (whether they should be equal to men or be elevated above them), the anthropomorphic language of god/ess, whether or not religious understanding can be restored to a place where women can find liberation and value, and the relationship between women and nature. Thankfully, the editors allow these differences to be held in tension within the volume. This provides a plethora of language to surround and begin to define the importance of women's experiences within the realm of religious understanding. I found healing in the openness for religious expression in new terms: those according to women and their experiences.
This collection readily addresses the reality that the idea of a male god has oppressive consequences for women in other realms of life outside religion; male conceptualization of god has given male humans control and power in all of society. One of the most meaningful chapters for me, "Why Women Need the Goddess" by Carol Christ, was about the social and political implications of the image of a goddess. Instead of being oppressed by men and a male god, a new vision of the divine is offered, one where women have power and control over their own lives in a way that is affirmed by their understanding of the divine. This provides hope for women not only in religious contexts, but in the world of work, home, and public society.
