Description

With many prayers straight from the personal journals of Joyce Rupp, Prayers to Sophia aids readers in reaching new spiritual depths through the exploration of feminine images of the Divine. Vulnerable and instructive in equal amounts, this book of meditative prayers offers fifty entries that include a verse from biblical wisdom literature and conversation starters for women's book groups.

This book serves as a companion to Joyce Rupp's The Star in My Heart.

Praise

"Eloquent."

"Prayers to Sophia is an eloquent response of love to Divine Wisdom. Joyce’s own vulnerability in these prayers add a beauty and a feminine voice which expresses all our longing for Divine presence as the Feminine."

Paula D’Arcy, Author of Gift of the Red Bird

"Beautiful."

"What a beautiful book! The wisdom within works its wonders on the landscape of the heart, revealing how deeply we are all immersed in the Wisdom we call God."

Sr. Miriam Therese Winter, Author of Woman Prayer, Woman Song

"Reminiscent of Rumi."

"Prayers to Sophia is the perfect companion to The Star in My Heart. Ten years later (and not a moment too soon), it is a deep, bold, evocative book of prayers to Divine Wisdom. Conscious, personal, and reminiscent of Rumi, Joyce Rupp helps open us to the Divine Feminine within us all."
