God as bread. God as a laboring woman. God as a dog. Sound heretical? These are all metaphors for God that are used in the Bible! Lauren Winner's stunning book "Wearing God" brings some of these images forward for new consideration. In today's show, Lori and Alice will examine the affect that our image of God has on us and on our broader society. Then, we'll talk about God as clothing, and as the one who clothes us. How can this image change our vision of ourselves? Can it help us feel less shame about our bodies? Can it change how we interact with others? Let's talk about it on your favorite on-the-air book club!
