IN SEARCH OF THE CHRIST-SOPHIA presents powerful biblical and theological support for a Divine Feminine image buried in Christianity. The popularity of THE DA VINCI CODE demonstrates the widespread hunger for the lost Sacred Feminine. This book resurrects Sophia (Wisdom) and connects Her to Jesus Christ. Aldredge-Clanton combines theological schoalrship with pastoral sensitivity to demonstrate that a christology inclusive of both female and male is vital to liberation and equality. She uncovers the New Testament links between Christ and Wisdom (Sophia), a feminine symbol of Deity in the Hebrew Scriptures. She applies the theology of Christ-Sophia to contemporary spirituality, social justice ministry, and the restructuring of the Christian community. This book also contains services, prayers, litanies, reflections, and songs that can be used for personal meditaiton or communal worship.With a clear and concise style accessible to general readers and theology students, IN SEARCH OF THE CHRIST-SOPHIA challenges individuals and churches to bring liberation through the inclusion of the Divine Feminine.
