"This book is a tour de force. It is simply magnificent--witty, scholarly, profoundly persuasive, blunt, prophetic, and convicting this slow-to-believe disciple all over the place."--Brennan Manning, author of The Ragamuffin Gospel
"I'm not sure what to make of it all, but Paul Smith gives the best arguments I have ever come across for calling God Mother. For anyone struggling with how far we should go in using inclusive language, this is 'must' reading."--Tony Campolo, Eastern College
"With tender power and wit, Paul Smith challenges the church to biblical fidelity and justice in its worship language. How encouraging it is to hear an evangelical male voice affirm the necessity of feminine images of God! This outstanding book so clearly and convincingly demonstrates the biblical imperative for inclusive God-language that the Christian community can no longer ignore it."--Jann Aldredge-Clanton, PhD, chaplain, Baylor University Medical Center; author of God and Gender and God: A Word for Girls and Boys
"In the often difficult debate over language and God, this is a thoughtful and productive contribution to this important and complex subject."--Roberta Hestenes, president, Eastern College, St. Davids, Pennsylvania
