"A cogent and persuasive plea for a return to the full catholic tradition which would make a critical contribution to the debate about gender in matters of faith."

--The Most Rev. Desmond M. Tutu

Writers of scripture and theologians have used scores of images to describe God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Yet only the patriarchal perspective seemed to survive and be taught. In this comprehensive reflection on the Nicene Creed, Geitz looks to the writings of theologians, mystics, and scholars throughout the centuries for a balanced and scholarly approach to an often divisive issue of Christians.

Elizabeth Geitz writes, "My desire is to help us move from an initial emotional response to feminine tradition of the church to one that is based on sound biblical, historical and theological principles."


Elizabeth Geitz is an Episcopal priest and the author of five books on spirituality, evangelism, hospitality and women's perspectives on faith. An award-winning writer, she is a spirituality faculty member for the CREDO Institute, Inc. and works closely with the Good Shepherd Home Board in Cameroon. Geitz is a popular keynote speaker and has been a radio talk show guest. The mother of two adult children, she lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, Michael.
