Abstract
This project proposes that men who experience significant gender shifts in the image of God will also experience positive changes in self-image that lead to greater self-esteem and more positive ways of relating to others. The project conducts a group interview and individual, in-depth interviews with four men whose experiences with female/feminine images of God move them toward more positive self-concepts. Drawing on the work of Sallie McFague, the project explores use of inclusive images of God from a feminist perspective.
