Christian spirituality for women whose faith feels at odds with their feminism
Women are looking for new ways to know themselves and to connect with God, two forms of knowledge that are intrinsically linked. Many have left traditional religion in frustration that it didn t reflect their real lives, turning instead to alternative spiritualities that purport to honor women s experience. In this post-feminist interpretation of Christianity, Lilian Calles Barger challenges both Christian tradition and feminist trends in spirituality to provide a fresh and inspiring look at divine wisdom, opening women s awareness to the voice of God in the world.
Lilian Calles Barger (Dallas, TX) is the founder of the Damaris Project, a nonprofit organization based in Dallas that facilitates opportunities for women outside the institutional church to connect their spirituality with the teachings of Jesus.
