Rejoice, Beloved Woman!
Publication date: July 11, 2004
If a woman wrote the psalms this is what they would sound like. While there are many books for women featuring the psalms, Barbara J. Monda is the first to offer a woman's version of these beloved sacred songs. She reveals a feminine image of God that embodies the strong yet nurturing feminine persona. Writing with a deep understanding of a woman's spiritual perspective, Monda has created poetry that speaks of God in both feminine and neutral terms. More than a new translation or the simple interjection of feminine language, here you will find a new vision of the psalms, fashioned through the passionate and enlightened eyes and heart of a woman.

“These psalms are beautifully done. The images are strong, the rhythm is clear, and the prayers come across as full of meaning for the present. I particularly like Monda's use of the traditional, scriptural concepts that are nonsexist in connotation: el Shaddai, Ruach, Sophia, etc.”
