Banyen's Description: 

God’s endless delight, Wisdom (also known as Chochma and Sophia) is the Mother of all life—God manifest in the world you encounter moment to moment. Her teachings, embedded in the Holy Scriptures of Jews and Christians, are passionate, powerful calls to live in harmony and love with integrity.

Through the Hebrew books of Psalms, Proverbs, Song of Songs, Ecclesiastes and Job, and the Wisdom literature books of Sirach and the Wisdom of Solomon, the Divine Feminine speaks strongly. Rami Shapiro’s contemporary translations and facing-page commentaries clarify who Wisdom is, what She teaches, and how Her words can help you live wisely and with compassion. This is not a book about Wisdom but the voice of Wisdom Herself, liberating, uplifting and compelling.

So it is true after all: there has been a feminine presence, a Wisdom presence, lurking all along at the root of our Jewish-Christian universe! —from the preface by Cynthia Bourgeault

Requiring no previous knowledge of Wisdom literature, this book presents insightful commentary that explains Sophia’s way of wisdom and illustrates the countless opportunities to experience Her creative energy through which God fashions all things.

“Collects the best biblical passages affirming the Divine Feminine, translates them beautifully and gives us a careful nuanced discussion of each of them... A fine textbook resource for courses or study groups.” —Stevan Davies, author of The Gospel of Thomas

“The timeless heart of Wisdom Herself, a modern day Tao Te Ching that is accessible to any person, from any background, interested in authentic spiritual illumination. A book to treasure all the days of your life, a living teaching with the power to awaken you to clear seeing and right action.” —Joan Borysenko, author of A Woman’s Journey to God
