Girl/Friend Theology | God-Talk with Young People (Baker)
Preorder now. Coming this fall!
God-Talk and Holy Listening
Dr. Rosemary Radford Ruether wrote in her foreword to the first edition of Dori Baker's Doing Girlfriend Theology (2005): "The key lies in learning to listen. Dori Baker shows us how to do that."
In the foreword to this updated edition, Girl/Friend Theology, Dr. Evelyn L. Parker expands upon Ruether's affirmation:
"[Baker] not only shows us how to Listen, but also to Immerse, View it wider, and Explore/Enact. Dori shows us how to L.I.V.E."
Where Is God in Our Stories?
Images of God are rooted in us—for better but sometimes for worse. Adolescent girls and genderqueer teenagers often pay a heavy price when those images are oppressive.
But the best God-images serve to free us all. The work of exploring God-images within young people's stories can be hard, but Girl/Friend Theology invites us to the work with joy, playfulness, and shared commitment.
Author Dori Grinenko Baker updates her original work with expanded perspective, added voices and stories, and an ongoing dedication to liberating faith.
