This chapter considers how a masculinist understanding of God has contributed to violence in society. The warrior image of God legitimizes wars and violence. In addition, the image of an exclusively male God can lead to the assertion that the male is superior to the female. Thus, the female is denigrated. Domination and subservience become the norm. The feminist perspective challenges this notion. Feminine metaphors for God in sacred texts have been highlighted to counterbalance the male imagery. The role of mothering and caring are shown as important in the task of peace keeping. Re-imaging God in feminine ways may contribute to a decline in patriarchy with an ensuing reduction in violence.
