A Woman Called God
So, why couldn't God be a woman? Really, why not? In this adorably playful, yet poignant and timely book, A Woman Called God asks all of us - women and men alike - to consider how the world would and could look if our universal perception of The Creator were not male but female: a mother-figure of unconditional love.
The result of a seventy-year personal journey by the author, A Woman Called God revolutionizes the traditional thinking of organized religion and makes possible a new and inviting path for every woman and man on the planet.
In its short five-minute read you may discover a new way of thinking. In its simple 27 hand-drawn stick-figures you may find a new dialogue. And in its less than 500 words you might even uncover answers that will take you and the world in a new and welcome direction.
What People are Saying About A Woman Called God"A wise and lovely book that should be widely read."--Jean Kilbourne, creator of the Killing Us Softly: Advertising's Image of Women film series, author of Can't Buy My Love: How Advertising Changes the Way We Think and Feel and So Sexy So Soon: The New Sexualized Childhood and What Parents Can Do to Protect Their Kids"Charming, unthreatening and delivers a wham-o message. Subversive to the status quo, the big R (Religion) and the big P (Patriarchy), withits simple, easy to grasp premise."--Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D., psychiatrist, Jungian analyst, and internationally known author and speaker."Bravo to this tour de force to Mr. Wilkes and for daring to bring ahopeful funny perspective on a delicate subject matter leading too manytimes to conflict and war. A Woman Called God is calling for: PeaceNow!"--Emmanuel Itier, film director, FEMME: Women healing the World"Thank you for sharing your wonderful book with me. I can't tell you how aligned it is with my beliefs and what I teach. I have studiedthis ideology for years and am a huge proponent of the message. Iwhole-heartedly support what you are doing and the way in which you aredoing it."--Sheila Kelley, author of The S Factor"A refreshing alternative to the Old White Man who rules the world from a throne in heaven."--Carol P. Christ, author of Rebirth of the Goddess"Sometimes simple is better. A WOMAN CALLED GOD is a case in point.In it, Wilkes plays with the oversimplified male construct of God thatwe sometimes find in the Bible and flips the story to imagine what thatkind of construct would look like as female. The result is a God thatlooks a lot like the God many of us know. For those who struggle withthe feminine in God, this may be just the tiny book needed to help youmake the last step. For those who already are there, this may be theexact tool you need to help a friend."--Rev. Mark Sandlin, Co-Founder of The Christian Left and Blogger at The God Article on Patheos"A beautiful gem delivering the gift of hope. An inter-faith bridgebuilder. A herald to the awakening of Herstory so the Sacred Femininemight be restored to her sacred place. All this packed into thispowerhouse of potent simplicity! Bravo Peter Wilkes!"-- Rev. Dr. Karen Tate, Author, Social Justice Activist, Feminist, Radio Show Host of Voices of the Sacred Feminine Radio."Peter Wilkes has written a fantastically affirming book for womenand men, which is a beacon of light towards peace and understanding. His playful case for the Divine Feminine is both clear and delightful.Finally, a God we can ALL relate to!"--Trista Hendren, Author, The Girl God Series As the son of an Episcopal minister, Peter Wilkes had a first-hand look at the inner workings of organized Religion (with a capital "R") throughout his upbringing. Now seventy years of age he has come to the conclusion that sometimes one must leave the institution of Religion behind in order to reclaim one's soul.
