Item Description...
Overview
Wisdom Has Built Her House brings together for the first time the collected studies of Silvia Schroer on the biblical figure of Sophia, divine Wisdom. Schroer presents a differentiated image of Wisdom as female, creator, teacher, prophet, beloved, and more. In Wisdom Has Built Her House Schroer portrays Wisdom as a cosmic ordering principle, as universal architect, and as mediator of all scientific knowledge. Schroer also inquires about the contexts of these writings: about feminine wisdom and women's roles after the Babylonian exile, about the goddess traditions behind the idea of Sophia, and about their significance within a monotheistic symbol system. Schroer then follows the tradition of God imaged as Wisdom to the time of the Jesus- movement and the first Christian communities. Teachers, students, and those looking for a well-reasoned study of personified Wisdom-and reasons for reinvisioning our own images of God-will find this in Wisdom Has Built Her House.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Profound and fascinating ideas and images  Feb 17, 2004
Here is a book of profound and fascinating ideas and images. this site has excerpted a long quote above, which is a good indication of the depth of the book, for instance, the reference to "Ancient Near Eastern dove symbolism in the New Testament's accounts of Jesus' baptism at the Jordan." Immediately, one thinks also of the image of Mary in Anunciation scenes reading a book, when she is touched by the Dove. If you know scripture, all sorts of wonderful new insights like this get sparked by comments on every page!
 
Check it out from the Library, but don't buy it.  Jul 27, 2003
I checked this book out from the Library, and I just finished it today. I found this book hard to stick with and a couple times I just wanted to stop reading it all together. The author reapeated herself many time and kept noting that the view of Sophia was influnced by Egpytian Goddesses. But I did learn a little, so I guess it was worth my time.
