Item description for Wisdom: The Feminine Face of God by Daniel Berrigan, S. J. Berrigan & Michael Baxter...

Continuing his highly acclaimed series of spiritual and social commentaries on the books of the Bible, Daniel Berrigan offers an original and timely reading of the Wisdom of Solomon. Navigating through its complex style-which intermixes poetry characteristic of the Old Testament and elaborate sentences found in Greek oratory-Berrigan's Wisdom: The Feminine Face of God reveals the philosophical, ethical, theological, historical, psychological, and scientific issues raised by the text and wrestles with their contemporary relevance:

"Let us venture an analogy . . . Let us suppose something unlikely. In this tangled jungle known as American culture, the hothouse of every sweet and seductive florum, an imperium of desire and appetite, a fierce threshing ground of the human, an induction center in the art and practice of amnesia-and always and everywhere violence, violence-in this unlikely place and time, there exists a community of believers. . . . And in the midst of this believing handful exists a seer who ponders the situation of his own, amid the ferocious larger scene, and sets down a reflection . . . a love letter-to the world!"

At the heart of this love letter, as Berrigan beautifully draws out, is Sophia, or Woman Wisdom. As one of the most powerful and mystical figures in the Bible, Woman Wisdom is the timeless personification of intelligence, holiness, purity, mercy, loyalty, justice, courage, and love. Emanating from God, she seeks to transform the world and invites all people of goodwill to be her lovers. Our challenge, as Berrigan's Wisdom: The Feminine Face of God makes clear, is to open our hearts and say yes.
