"Goddess and God in the World offers readers the chance to sit in a cozy room with two of the greats of feminist theology. In this work, Carol P. Christ and Judith Plaskow answer all the questions you would pose if you had an audience with them. You overhear them laugh, reminisce, pontificate, argue and laugh again. They share their theological journeys with academia, philosophy, theological traditions and Scripture. Beautifully weaving together their personal paths with the histories of Judaism, Christianity, Western philosophy and Goddess traditions, Plaskow and Christ offer distinct theologies that wrestle with the depth and breadth of patriarchy. They emerge different than how they entered, and yet maintaining deep and meaningful faiths. Most importantly, they engage each other in a way that is quickly disappearing from the academy: they note their differences, critique one another other, revel in their similarities, and debate without needing to convert. May this work be a model for all dialogical theology!"
