Carol P. Christ is the author of Diving Deep and Surfacing and Laughter of Aphrodite.
A decade ago Christ and Plaskow coedited Womanspirit Rising ( LJ 3/1/79). Here are more writings on ``thealogy and theology'' in which women reclaim traditions, rename the sacred, search for self, and envision transformation. Pieces range from reformist critiques of Judaism and selections from Christianity's Inclusive Language Lectionary to lesbian literature on goddesses; stylistically, there are scholarly essays, reflections on witches' rituals, and fictional excerpts from writers as diverse as Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza, Alice Walker, and Starhawk. A controversial, important potpourri that reflects the burgeoning field of feminist spirituality.-- EC
"Puts forth a feminist spiritual vision that is large and diverse, one that can encompass the depths and complexity fo women's lives and traditions."--Margot Adler, author of "Drawing Down the Moon"
