Item Description...
Overview
There is an ancient mystical legend that the Bible was written with black fire on white fire. Now, we can only read the black fire (the letters), but someday we might be able to see the white fire. Today, with their voices and their presence growing ever stronger, women spiritual leaders in America are like white fire, and we can see the previously untapped power of female leadership. This remarkable book gives voice and image to the too often invisible, ignored, or overlooked narrative of women's spiritual leadership in America today. Revealed through insightful interviews and compelling photographic portraits, the women represent both diversity and sisterhood. They offer us new ways of relating to each other, and the Divine.

Publishers Description

They struggled to clear a new path for women;
these are the stories of modern spiritual pioneers.

"I imagine this book as a dinner party where women have eagerly gathered for a conversation about being a woman, a person of faith, and a leader. While some know each other, many do not, but it doesn t matter. Listening to them in ensemble reveals that all their differences are less important than how much they share as women of faith. Since community and interconnection tend to be feminine traits, sisterhood is important, and I hope that upon finishing the book, the reader may feel that she or he has found a teacher that offers a new way to see women and the Divine." from the Introduction

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Look at the Feminine Re-emerging with Light  Feb 22, 2005
Rabbi Drucker takes you into the living rooms, churches and lecture halls of thirty-one of America's notable female spiritual leaders. The author's open descriptions of her personal reactions to each interview engage the reader in both the conversation and its relevance to spirituality today. There is no doubt that Malka is doing more than collecting data. She is making friends, comrades and allies on her own quest to return the feminine voice to religious and spiritual teachings.

These women share their stories, pointing out both the joy and suffering that comes with active participation in ministry. Ranging from Jewish Rabbis, as is the author herself, to Yoruba priestess' and New Age thinkers they are stars shining a bright light on a changing world. Malka Drucker has exposed that light to guide us as we reunite the Divine Feminine with her consort.

Black and white portraits done by Gay Block reveal something about each of her subjects that would have been veiled by color. Ms Block does a wonderful job of capturing the soul through expression and setting.

surprising and inspiring  Jun 29, 2003
Many of my friends have read and suggested this books because of its great expressions of faith and how women are changing the face of religious leadership. They represent a new way of seeing God and a new community of leadership. Never before have so many women served the holy with earthly authority; it's a new paradigm and they might change the destructive and violent energy so prevalent in our time.
 
Authentic, exciting, substantial, celebratory  Feb 20, 2003
Freud asked what women really want. Rabbi Malka Drucker asks what both women and men want and need, spiritually, today. The answer is individual expression within a community, a fellowship, that supports each of us to bring goodness (divinity, God) into the world. The book functions as biography, history, and inspiration all at once, as it introduces the remarkable women--some widely known (Marianne Williamson, Dr. Elaine Pagels), some locally known (Dr. Nahid Angha, Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis)- whose stories it tells. I disagree with "Publishers Weekly" reviewer that Rabbi Drucker's personal comments are intrusive. To the contrary, they enliven and bring immediacy to the spiritual biographies she presents and encourage the reader to bring his or her own experience to meeting these leaders. Though the book could be used for study or the classroom, its personal approach is anything but "textbookish." It's substantial, accessible, authentic, exciting and celebratory. A must-read if you are investigating or committed to matters of the spirit.
