The Mother Heart of God

Unveiling the Mystery of the Father's Maternal Love
By Trudy Beyak (Hardcover Book, 2013)
Are we missing half the picture of God? For more than five millennia, scholars focused on the paternal or fatherly qualities of God's loving kindness, but forgot or ignored the maternal aspects. What is it about this issue that triggers such controversy? As a committed Christian and an investigative journalist, Trudy Beyak spent five years on a journey with pen and notebook in hand researching the Scriptures and interviewing more than fifty leading biblical scholars and celebrities from North America to the Middle East. What is God really like? What sacred evidence does the Bible reveal?


Trudy Beyak invites the reader to join her on a global journey to discover a fresh spiritual view of God that is relevant and encouraging for everyone. By weaving elements of her personal story, interview highlights with over fifty Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish leaders, and biblical facts, Trudy invites the reader to experience the comfort and intensity of God's infinite embrace: a love that shelters, protects and brings healing to every soul.

  • PRAISE FOR THE BOOK:

    "When a brilliant interviewer and journalist wraps her quest and questions inside 'story' humanity is delivered a stunning and important gift!  You are holding such a gift in your hands!"

  • QUOTE FROM THE BOOK:

    "The Old Testement prophets used the analogy of the 'womb' to disclose how God gently 'shelters us' and 'carries us in compassionate love.'"

  • QUOTE FROM THE BOOK:

    "When God created men and women to be like him, women are half of the equation--we are half of the picture."

  • QUOTE FROM THE BOOK:

    "God's love for us is like the deep love a mother has for her newborn, like the protective love a mother has for her sick three-year-old child, like the unconditional love a mother has for her cantankerous 18-year-old."

  • QUOTE FROM THE BOOK:

    "God expressed his love in the metaphors of the family, both father and mother."

  • QUOTE FROM THE BOOK:

    "This new book is an amazing example of how a collection of articulate, educated people deeply committed to differing religious faiths can agree on a concept that has never even occurred to most of us. And, yet the concept is so obvious."

  • QUOTE FROM THE BOOK:

    "All three persons of the Godhead reveal paternal and maternal qualities in their relationship with us. They are one in essence ... The paternal aspect of God is a combination of authority and care; the maternal quality is one of loving support."
