Cutting across class, race, religion, and gender, A Woman's Worth speaks powerfully and persuasively to a generation in need of healing, and in search of harmony. With A Woman's Worth, Marianne Williamson turns her charismatic voice—and the same empowering, spiritually enlightening wisdom that energized her landmark work, A Return to Love— to exploring the crucial role of women in the world today.

For Hegel, thought is not philosophical if it is not also religious. Both religion and philosophy have a common object and share the same content, for both are concerned with the inherent unity of all things. Hegels doctrine of God provides the means for understanding this fundamental relationship.

Williamsons book provides a significant contribution to this ongoing discussion through a systematic study of Hegels concept of God. The book proceeds by investigating theism, atheism, pantheism, and panentheism as descriptions of Hegels concept. It rejects the view that Hegels doctrine so differs from Christian theology so as to be empty of religious content and thereby highlights some important considerations in contemporary theology.
