Find me a ‘She Bible’. Although the amount of text books I’ve used in class with typos is ridiculous,  they create a murmur but we generally don’t rename the thing!

Shouldn’t be surprised that a text produced to share religious and political ideals freaks out at a random female presence. The KJV was my dissertation at uni, so I know the impact on language it had…so I always wonder…

If God is neither male nor female, but merely ascribed a term to assist our understanding (he, father, his). Then would the world be a different place or not if we had used ‘she’…kind of want to watch Dogma now
