"Bravo to this tour de force, to Mr. Wilkes, and for daring to bring a hopeful funny perspective on a delicate subject matter leading too many times to conflict and war.
A Woman Called God is calling for Peace Now!"
—Emmanuel Itier, director, FEMME: Women Healing the World
This little book certainly packs a punch, and I'm sure it will have many tongues wagging. The idea that God could be a woman, why not? Wilkes makes a lot of good points in this book on this subject but his main aim is to open our eyes to a life of unconditional love and understanding for our fellow man.
Even though this book has a serious undertone, it was witty and I loved the adorable pictures that graced the pages. This was a real gem and I'm glad I had the pleasure of giving it a read. It gave me a lot to think about.
1. Did you write this book for adults or for children?
2. Why did you choose the short, illustrated format to convey your spiritual message?
3. Why do you think people might have an easier time trusting God as a mother figure, instead of as a father figure?
4. Doesn’t your illustration of “God the Father” assume all fathers (or men in general) are severe, scary, or judgmental?
5. How did the female figures in your life inspire your personal spiritual journey?
