"Goddess as Nature" makes an important contribution to elucidating the which means of a feminine and feminist deity before everything of the twenty-first century. Bridging the space among the emergent non secular discourse of thealogy - discourse concerning the Goddess - and a variety of analytical matters within the philosophy of faith, the writer argues that thealogy isn't as incoherent as lots of its critics declare. through constructing an in depth interpreting of the reality-claims embedded inside a number of thealogical texts, you can still figure an ecological and pantheistic inspiration of deity and truth that's metaphysically novel and wanting confident philosophical, thealogical and scholarly engagement. Philosophical thealogy is, in an age interested by re-conceiving nature when it comes to company, chaos, complexity, ecological networks and organicism, either an lively threat and a remarkably precious educational, feminist and spiritual endeavour.
