Publishers Description Nooma is a revolutionary product that is changing the way people experience spirituality -- a series of short films on DVD with a 32 page discussion guide.It's not a book or a cassette tape. And it's not a CD or a two-hour movie. It's a new format called NOOMA --- short films, between 10 and 14 minutes long, about God and our lives. Since its limited online release in November 2002, NOOMA has impacted millions of people. Because of this initial success and great potential, Zondervan has partnered with NOOMA to bring these films to the world. NOOMAs are appropriate for personal and small group settings, congregational meetings, and much more. Like parables, they use the experiences of our lives to teach about the fullness of life through Jesus, tackling issues like forgiveness, discipleship, and unconditional love. The study materials accompanying each NOOMA encourage meaningful discussion with relevant questions and biblical references. Rob Bell, a leading pastor and breakthrough communicator in the Christian community, is featured in the first series of NOOMAs.

Reviews - What do customers think about NOOMA: She (V21)?
Isn't she lovely? Isn't she wonderfull? Sep 24, 2009
Surprisingly I had recently preached a lesson on this touchy subject and of all people, a woman disagreed with me. She said, "nope - not my God." As if to say, `her God' had to be a man. Her God had to be male...or what? He wasn't God?
I said, `what about creation? don't you know that you were made in God's image? Part of the image of God has to be female.' But she wasn't biting. There are even those who preach that it is actually the holy spirit who takes on the feminine aspects of God. I won't say `gender' or `role' because I think God transcends those titles.
But why do we overlook the feminine characteristics of God?
Rob quoted a passage from Job 38:29, God says, "From whose womb did the ice come forth, and who has given birth to the frost of heaven?"
Can your God give birth? Does your God have a womb?
I would hope that as a woman - you would WANT God to share aspects that you could identify with. Where does motherhood come from? Where does the desire to create life come from? Where does female intuition come from? Where do emotions and love and tenderness and softness and family and all the traits I see in my wife, my mother and my sisters come from? They come from the creator - who made the woman in his own image.
And when you leave the female out of the equation... I believe you lessen God's presence and his voice.
I have been visiting a lot of church websites lately. When I see job postings, one of the first thing I do is check out their website. And the first page I go to is the staff page. And you know what I see? Typically as I scroll down I see.
A woman, and she is the children's "director"
It's rare that I see a woman youth pastor, or a woman assistant pastor, or a woman teaching pastor or heaven forbid a woman female pastor! [you go Presbyterians!!!]
What are we doing? God made BOTH male and female in his image and I believe if only one side of the conversation or the voice or the relationship is represented, then there is a part of God that has been silenced.
Wouldn't that be sin?
How do I feel about women in ministry? Why is that even a question?
Maybe if we were more aware of the feminine imagery for God we would have a better understanding of who God is and what God is like.
