By Omer, Louise
Louise Omer is a Pentecostal preacher and faithful wife. But when her marriage crumbles, so do her beliefs. Haunted by questions about what it means to be female in a religion that worships a male God, she leaves behind her church and home to go on a pilgrimage to discover whethe...r there is a place in modern religion for holy women. As she reflects on her own past and changing beliefs, Louise visits Mexican basilicas, Swedish cathedrals, Bulgarian mountains, and Moroccan mosques, and meets women who have asked similar questions. Holy Woman combines travel writing, feminist theology, and confessional memoir to interrogate modern religion, and gives a raw and personal exploration of spiritual life under patriarchy.Read more
