A pioneering look at the spirituality of North American women that suggests women develop their spirituality very differently from men and require their own female guides and role models. Using interviews with more than 100 women–including Jean Bolen and Maya Angelou–the authors explore the diverse paths of women’s spiritual growth. 272 pp.
“By studying the spiritual lives of women from many ages and cultures through the life span, students identify their own spiritual journeys and share them with others. Through the real-life experiences of women, this book helped students explore images of God from the feminine perspective and how these influenced the spiritual journeys of women. They were able to identify and find spiritual inspiration as they explored the ideas and metaphors in class and in small groups.”
