This is a pretty dense book. Written by a female Jewish professor for a primarily Jewish audience, Ochs seeks to define and explore how our theology both creates and is shaped by our own experiences. The chapters on Work, Body, and Prayer were especially helpful to me. In general, a thought-provoking and nourishing read.
