There are hundreds of metaphors for God, but the church only uses a few familiar images: creator, judge, savior, father. In WEARING GOD, Lauren Winner gathers a number of lesser-known tropes, reflecting on how they work biblically and culturally, and reveals how they can deepen our spiritual lives. Exploring the notion of God as clothing, Winner reflects on how we are “clothed with Christ” or how “God fits us like a garment.” She then analyzes how clothing functions culturally to shape our ideals and identify our community.

In the critically acclaimed memoir GIRL MEETS GOD, Lauren F. Winner chronicled her sojourn from Judaism to Christianity. Now, in STILL, she describes how experiences of loss and failure unexpectedly slam her into a wall of doubt and spiritual despair.
