What Happens When God Can be Mother Too?

Devotional Resources and Other Books about God as Mother

Two books I used for my personal devotions during the first year of the experiment:

Swallow’s Nest: A Feminine Reading of the Psalms by Marchienne Vroon Rienstra

The Divine Feminine Version of the New Testament by The Christian Godde Project


I added this one recently, a full translation of OT and NT by Priests for Equality:

The Inclusive Bible: The First Egalitarian Translation


For theological, Biblical and historical information about God as Mother, I refer to these:

Is It Okay to Call God Mother? Considering the Feminine Face of God by Paul R. Smith

Not Only a Father: Talk of God as Mother in the Bible and Christian Tradition by Tim Bulkeley

Jesus as Mother: Studies in the Spirituality of the High Middle Ages by Carole Walker Bynum

The Divine Feminine: The Biblical Imagery of God as Female by Virginia Ramey-Mollenkott

The Divine Feminine in Biblical Wisdom Literature: Selections Annotated and Explained by Rabbi Rami Shapiro
