THE MORNING SHOW
Author of A Woman Called God
So, why couldn’t God be a woman? Really, why not? In this adorably playful, yet poignant and timely book, A Woman Called God asks all of us – women and men alike – to consider how the world would and could look if our universal perception of The Creator were not male but female: a mother-figure of unconditional love.
The result of a seventy-year personal journey by the author, and inspired initially by his mother and first wife, A Woman Called God revolutionizes the traditional thinking of organized religion and makes possible a new and inviting path for every woman and man on the planet.
As the son of an Episcopal minister, Peter Wilkes had a first-hand look at the inner workings of organized religion throughout his upbringing. Now seventy years of age he has come to the conclusion that organized religion has continually done more harm than good. In A Woman Called God, the first in his series of Little books for Big people, he goes back to the source and examines how it’s possible to leave Religion – with a capital “R” – behind and reclaim your soul.
