“An honest, compelling, surprising, and vastly reassuring book about the spiritual life of women . . .

In this fascinating and thought-provoking book, Sherry Anderson and Patricia Hopkins show how many women have redefined traditional beliefs and rediscovered their own unique spiritual heritage—The Feminine Face of God. Anderson and Hopkins guide you through the sacred garden of:• Childhood—seedbed of life’s sacred passage• Leaving home—finding your own inner authority• Relationships—new perspectives on intimacy• Spiritual practice—the importance of guidance and discipline• Sexuality—a wild card constantly cracking open the heart• And much moreAs women enter their sacred garden and learn the art of inner listening, they acquire the tools for living, loving, and praying authentically.
