I Am That Child

"Elizabeth Geitz's odyssey to a Cameroon orphanage yields profound insights into AIDS, criminalization of HIV, and racial and gender discrimination--not to mention a narrative that is as breath-taking as it is inspiring."
~John Berendt
Author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

“This most compelling book about mission that is honest-to-God … and honest-before-God … that I have ever read.”
~Phyllis Tickle
Author of Embracing Emergence and The Divine Hours, and former religion editor for Publishers Weekly

"Geitz takes us into a brilliant world–one seldom seen through Western eyes. If you see this world, I predict two things. First, you will not look away. Lastly, you will discover here courage and perseverance."
~Michael Battle
Author of Ubuntu: I in You and You in Me

"[A] touching account of learning and growing across boundaries of culture and economics that shows 'the love of God materialized.' Geitz's book encourages us to explore solidarity with companions in the Two-Thirds World–and with those suffering injustice at home."
~Titus Presler
Author of Going Global with God: Reconciling Mission in a World of Difference

“The stories unfold in short, lively chapters and take the reader on a fascinating tour. Elizabeth Geitz writes lucidly and engagingly of her own privilege and a pilgrimage that brought her to a renewed passion and priesthood; one hopes that she'll continue sharing more with us all.”
~Sam Portaro

Praise for the first edition of Soul Satisfaction:

“What would it take for you to accept yourself as created in the image of God?” Elizabeth Geitz asks, then takes us by the hand and introduces us to energetic, creative, courageous, feisty, steady, heads-up women in the Bible. This is not simply a pious meditation book. It’s a manual for action for women who want to make a difference in the world.”
~ Helen Prejean
Author of Dead Man Walking
Nobel Peace Prize Nominee 1998

"Provocative...offers women a new way into the rich, nourishing wisdom of a very old book...I'd never thought of (the Bible) that way before."
~ The Daily Record (NJ)

Gender and the Nicene Creed

"It is to be hoped that Elizabeth Rankin Geitz will be heard....'digging below the surface of commonly held understandings,' Geitz discovers how the Creed reveals the feminine attributes of God and the feminine traditions of Christianity."
~ Publisher's Weekly Religion BookLine

"A cogent and persuasive plea for a return to the full catholic tradition which would make a critical contribution to the debate about gender in matters of faith."
~ Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Nobel Peace Prize, 1984
Presidential Medal of Freedom, 2009
Author of God Has a Dream and many more
Elizabeth Geitz and Desmond Tutu

"Elizabeth Geitz has done a beautiful job in recovering that which has been lost and found and lost again and again - feminine attributes of God and some important feminine traditions of Christianity. I, for one, am gratefully in her debt."
~ William Sloane Coffin

Christian Hospitality in a Multi-faith World

"So thoroughly researched, so concrete and useful, so wise, the author's self-disclosure so open hearted: this is an exciting book."
~ Barbara Cawthorne Crafton

"Elizabeth Geitz presents a winsome case about viewing our evangelical outreach...as an exchange of stories about healing."
~ John Koenig

Entertaining Angels

"(Mainline churches) might learn to do better with people who have had the courage to find their way across a sanctuary threshold, often to be turned off by the indifferent and apathetic inside. Geitz would quicken their interest, open doors."
~ Christian Century

"Emphasizes welcoming and nurturing; we're getting a lot of lay involvement."
~ Trinity Times (Trinity Church, Wall Street, NYC)

Calling Clergy:
A Spiritual and Practical Guide through the Search Process

"Elizabeth displays how 'normative' approaches to the search process are inadequate to the actual needs of the Church. There is deep discernment here for how to recognize and match vocation and ministry."
~ Michael Battle
Author of Ubuntu: I in You and You in Me

" This book is an invaluable tool for those who seek to be faithful to the spirit's guidance while making use of the church's best practices in seeking, finding and celebrating new ministries."
~
Bishop George Councell

Women’s Uncommon Prayers

Co-edited by Elizabeth Geitz

"Cries out to all women, celebrating feminine life in all its joy and sorrow ... a truly Feminine Psalmody praising the eternal She Who Is."
~ The Monos Community

"Touches upon many aspects of the lives and work of women. For example, there are prayers on facing an operation, on going to a wedding reception alone, comfort when the pregnancy test is negative, in celebration of childbirth, menarche bewilderment ... for unsafe neighborhoods, for a child who has been molested."

All Shall Be Well

See Elizabeth's chapter “Renewing Vocational Vision”

"This book serves as both a refresher on the process of change and a foretaste of what may come from exploring the cycle of Identity, Discernment, Practice and Transformation. No matter where one begins the walk, All Shall Be Well is the journal of that journey, toward wellness."
~ Episcopal Life
