Item description for Sensing the Spirit: The Holy Spirit in Feminist Perspective by Rebecca Button Prichard...
Overview "[Readers] will find their perspective on the nature and work of the Holy Spirit enriched by Prichard's introduction of often neglected voices like Shakers, Pentecostals, nineteenth-century evangelical women, and the like. They will also find helpful reflection on how Prichard locates her approach in relation to such well-known movements as process theology, creation spirituality, and the like."
Publishers Description In the First Feminist: Constructive Theology of the Spirit, Prichard uses the five senses to explore the Bible, historical theology, medieval mystics, contemporary experience, and more as ways to speak metaphorically of God's Spirit. This poetic book combines theology with hymns, scripture, poetry, and the reflections of such mystics as Julian of Norwich and Hildegard of Bingen to talk about and to evoke a sense of the Spirit's presence.
