At last the paperback copies of Not Only a Father, and not only the online edition, are available. Now the hard work of getting it reviewed and even harder work of getting people to discuss the online discussable edition remain :)
The book traces the biblical and theological reasons why we need to talk of God in motherly alongside fatherly terms, and begins to suggest some ways this could enrich our spirituality. I know that such talk has become less rare (even occasional in less conservative circles) but it is still not a commonplace. A gendered god is not the God of Scripture, and it’s time we acted on this truth!
