Discovering Motherhood

Discovering Motherhood
$12.95

Discovering Motherhood is a journey without a map—a life-long trip into a new and unfamiliar world. It is a daunting, high-energy trek with ups and downs and bumps in the road.

The price of admission is three a.m. feedings, endless diaper changes and lost sleep. But the payoff comes in the profound relationships of mother and children, and in the love that gives life its luster.

Annemarie Scobey has recorded the journey with insight, humor and a sure sense of the presence of the Divine in the turmoil, troubles and triumphs of everyday life.

Discovering Motherhood celebrates a dimension of life that only mothers can truly know.

Love Will Steer Me True

Love Will Steer Me True
$13.95
When Ellen Knuth, a recent college graduate, decided to take a teaching job that sent her to across the world to a remote part of Japan, her mother Jane first felt the palpitations of worry.  The closest Christian church was two hours by bullet train, and Jane couldn’t be sure what kind of spiritual support her daughter would have available. Ellen, about to embark on a momentous experience, was more concerned about navigating cultural differences and handling her first classroom than the Mass schedule of far-flung churches.

Thus a mother and daughter begin a cross-continental, winding journey in learning to relate to one another and their personal faith through the different lenses of their lives. With each section written individually, Jane and Ellen separately tackle their own perspectives on faith, family, and their place in the world. Somehow, they must find a path that allows Jane to let go of her spiritual plans for Ellen, and Ellen to let God find her wherever she is.     

Delightfully conversational and inviting, Love Will Steer Me True shows how a mother and daughter swerve and weave their way into a new understanding of themselves, of their familial relationship, and of their faith.  Laugh, learn, and wonder along with Jane and Ellen as they begin to tackle their new realities.

New Feminist Christianity: Many Voices, Many Views

product image
$21.99

Powerful insights from ministers, theologians, activists, leaders, artists and liturgists who are shaping the future.

"Christianity has been a source of the oppression of women, as well as a resource for unleashing women's full humanity. Feminist analysis and practice have recognized this. Feminist Christianity is reshaping religious institutions and religious life in more holistic, inclusive, and justice-focused ways."
from the Introduction

Feminism has brought many changes to Christian religious practice. From inclusive language and imagery about the Divine to an increase in the number of women ministers, Christian worship will never be the same. Yet, even now, there is a lack of substantive structural change in many churches and complacency within denominations.

The contributors to this book are the thought leaders who are shaping, and being shaped by, the emerging directions of feminist Christianity. They speak from across the denominational spectrum, and from the many diverse groups that make up the Christian community as it finds its place in a religiously pluralistic world. Taken together, their voices offer a starting point for building new models of religious life and worship.

Topics covered include feminist:

  • Theological Visions
  • Scriptural Insights
  • Ethical Agendas
  • Liturgical and Artistic Frontiers
  • Ministerial Challenges
  • Contributors include:
