Item description for The Engendering God: Male and Female Faces of God by Carl a. Raschke & Susan Doughty Raschke...

Overview
In this book, the authors argue that God's own self-revelation is neither exclusively male nor female but both at once. With this self-revelation of the "two-in-one", the authors contend that the scriptures are actually a radical proclamation of gender equality.

Publishers Description
Carl Raschke and Susan Doughty Raschke argue that God's own self-revelation is neither exclusively male nor exclusively female but both at once. With this self-revelation of the "two in one," the authors contend that the scriptures are actually a radical proclamation of gender equality. Basing their findings on historical, anthropological, and biblical scholarship, they make a compelling argument that this awareness of God's dual nature was widely accepted and understood in the early years of Christianity but was intentionally obscured through the ages. This book is an essential starting point for the inquiry into the nature of God and creation. Readers will find resources from within the Christian tradition that aid in the understanding of both the male and the female sides of God.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Engendering God: Male and Female Faces of God?

Don't waste your time.  Feb 13, 2004
The Raschkes have nothing new to say, and they are saying it. A rehash of an old "issue" of interest only to the neo-theologians and pastors who are living on the church dole.
 
An important book  Mar 10, 1999
This is a book that ought to be read by those interested in the rather controversial and paradoxical question of "the gender of God". This question is discussed in a nuanced, and convincing way in this book. You can read about the Sophia tradition, the parallels between Christianity and the Isis cult, the Knights Templars, the Book of Revelation, and the 13th century troubadours in this book. Someone may ask what these subjects has in common. Well, read the book and you will see!!

One of the authors, Carl Raschke, has been known for his ground-breaking, well researched and controversial book about satanism, Painted Black. In The Engendering God he shows that he and his co-author could be as interesting and as fascinating when they writes about the concepts of God and the good as when Carl Raschke writes about evil! The discussions about Isis and Demeter could very well be used in a dialogue between Christians and neo-pagans! This book deserves many readers!
