His view that we're all «feminine» when it comes to the «masculine» God - a theological feminism which crosses gender traces - implies that characteristics we have a tendency to gender as female, corresponding to humility, are the features necessary to being absolutely human.

This hugely insightful and exciting examine of theological feminism in Lewis’s Cosmic Trilogy can be compelling for somebody attracted to fable literature, Inklings scholarship, gender discourse, moral and religious discourse, literature and theology, and cultural reviews as a rule.
