Sophy is told that she is made in the image of God, but the only God she has ever heard of is called Father. It doesn't make any sense, so she decides to find out why God isn't a girl. What she discovers changes everything!
This beautifully illustrated picture book, by Reverend Diana Wilcox, an Episcopal priest, will captivate the imagination of every child with beautiful illustrations and a narrative that engages both parent and child.
Sophy's journey explores themes of gender, interfaith understanding, and diversity in God's creation. The book also includes resources for all who work with and love children.
The original edition of Why isn't God a Girl? won a Readers' Favorite Illustration Award winner and a Readers' Favorite Honorable Mention in the Children Religious Theme genre!
Mother Diana's passion for the Gospel and the inclusive message of Jesus has sparked her pastoral response to girls searching for their place in God's plan. Her book helps girls and boys to discover God's feminine image in which women are created. She places the characters of her book in the interfaith communities in which so many of us live and work. Parents, teachers, and members of the clergy will find in her phenomenal book a resource for helping people to discover the deep truth of God as our Mother in a simple lesson.--The Rev. Peter DeFranco
