I read this book for a Women in Religion course in undergrad. I originally borrowed the book but purchased it after the course because I thought it was interesting--and we didn't get to cover all of the writings. If you are interested in the subject of women in religion and how they are represented I highly recommend this book! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393039463, Hardcover)

Spiritual experience has always been, and is especially today, a liberating source of women's identity and their resistance to oppression. These selections feature centuries of this tradition's most intuitive writing: women ancient, medieval, and modern articulate the spiritual dimension of life. From Ishtar of Babylonia and Isis of Egypt to the medieval mystic Hildegard of Bingen, the contemporary African American poet Lucille Clifton, and the Buddhist shaman Joan Halifax, these visionaries see justice and love, loss, aging, and freedom; and it inspires artistic expression and political action. This deeply moving collection of poetry, essays, prayers, letters, memoirs, stories, and theologies by wise women is a source of empowering and uplifting thought for women in any time, at any age.
