Moreover, we cannot accept a male image of God that has received characteristics and attributes the patriarchal system conceived in its mind. Who has determined that men are to be rational, powerful, or in controland that women are to be receptive, caring, and compassionate? 4 If these roles have just been a maneuver of fallen societal systems, then we must challenge them.

Each chapter provides introductory information on the topic, the main issues or questions relating to each topic, a series of reflection questions allowing each woman to wrestle personally with the topic, and a list of resources for further exploration. The first chapter, "Women and Their Gifts," stresses the importance of knowing who we are and what unique gifts lie within us as daughters of God called to become co-creators with God. The chapters entitled "Women and Christ," "Women and the Image of God,'' and "Women and Spirituality" provide the Christian woman with a more wholistic perspective of God, Christ, and herself.
