"When God Was a Little Girl" is a sweet, earnest, and theologically provoking retelling of the creation story. Lindeman's beautiful artwork complements Weiss' words as he recounts a shared storytelling moment between father and daughter, God and people. The great gift of a book that presents God in the feminine and across races and cultures while delving deeply into a biblical story cannot be overstated.

I am excited to take this book back to seminary to share with my peers as we discuss ways to present and represent the divine through art and story. Thank you, David and Joan!
