Imaging and interacting with Sophia as the feminine face of God is the focus of Wisdoms Feast. Moving from ancient biblical references to present day context, the authors skillfully stage a series of thought-provoking and participative liturgies to integrate experience of Sophia with theory and theology.

Wisdom's Famine. Jun 24, 2004
Perhaps one of the most boring books on spirituality I never finished. Pretentious. The authors seemed out of touch. Rehashed Mathew Fox meets Goddess worship. Poor writing made the book even more baffling.
A classic for Christian worship of the Divine Femmine Feb 4, 1997
In this updated edition of the 1986 work we are provided a unique handbook of how to invoke the divine feminine as identified with wisdom. It combines the theory and practice of the celebration of Sophia - whose name literally means "wisdom" - in one useful and handy volume. In this new edition of Wisdom's Feast, the authors combine exercises, liturgies, sermons, study guides, prayers and meditations to create the first book to guide book of rituals for experiencing Sophia in worshipful setting.The work has been popular with women's circle worship and among congregations who wish to extend their worship in gender inclusive ways. Highly recommended for Christians who feel some trepidation toward invoking the feminine divine because of its strong biblical basis and for anyone who wants more than a superficial orientation toward enriching their ceremonial life.
Susan Cole, Marian Ronan and Hal Taussig developed study and celebration of Sophia after years of research and implementation in women's groups. Cole and Taussig are Methodist ministers; Ronan is an author in the field of image-building.

An introduction to Sophia.
Activities for women's groups, churches and academic settings.
Exercises on the most prominent Sophia themes in the Bible.
Meditations and sermons.
