From Our Editors

Now in paperback from the bestselling author of Living in Sin? comes a carefully researched, bold, and persuasive argument that "the virgin of a literal Bible, the virgin of annunciation, Bethlehem, and the manger, corrupted by the years of an overlaid male theology, will have to go"

Editorial Reviews

“A marvelous combination of scholarly, speculative, and imaginative reflection written in language accessible to the theologically unsophisticated. Highly recommended.”
