Summary

"I was amazed to find that I had no idea how to unfold my spiritual life in a feminine way. I was surprised, and, in fact, a little terrified, when I found myself in the middle of a feminist spiritual reawakening." --Sue Monk Kidd, Sue Monk Kidd was a conventionally religious woman.

Then, in the late 1980s, Kidd experienced an unexpected awakening, and began a journey toward a feminine spirituality. With the exceptional storytelling skills that have helped make her name, author of When the Heart Waits tells her very personal story of the fear, anger, healing, and freedom she experienced on the path toward the wholeness that many women have lost in the church.

This Plus edition paperback includes a recent interview with the author conducted by the book's editor Michael Maudlin.

With the exceptional storytelling skills that have helped making her name, the acclaimed author of "The Secret Life of Bees" tells her very personal story of the fear, anger, healing, and freedom she experienced on the path toward the wholeness that women have lost within patriarchal faith traditions.

A must read book!!!! August 1, 2011
by
This is a fabulous textbook. I recommend it to every woman struggling to find a place for herself spiritually. I grew up in one form of the Christian tradition only to find myself disenchanted in my young adulthood. Even though this textbook is written from the viewpoint of a woman raised in Christianity, it is relevant and important for women of all faiths that have been steeped in patriarchy. The format of the textbook is approachable and the information is immediately useful. I received a great price on the textbook! Also, it shipped quickly and I received it quickly!
