I realized that feminist theologians who claim God is a woman are fundamentally mistaken--only a man would let this sort of thing happen. With wit and humor, warmth, and a down-to-earth sensibility, Berkovic lives out in her own life the contradictions between the opportunities of modern life and the constrictions of Orthodox practice.

Her book is not an ideological tract, however, but a warm, personal account of her Orthodox upbringing, and the hope she has for herself and her daughters. Speaking to them, she admits that sometimes I feel like this life your father and I have created for you is ... disconnected from our own childhood experiences and caught in a timewarp as Orthodoxy fails to address the changing roles of its daughters....

Because of that, it would be much easier to say Orthodoxy doesnt speak to me, but I feel that I have the responsibility to speak to Orthodoxy.
