“Martin Luther, the originator of the Protestant movement, was not ashamed to think of the Holy Spirit in feminine terms. We often miss this in Luther studies because his feminine terminology is translated into English masculine terms, but if his German is translated without such a gender bias, his sense of the Holy Spirit being feminine shines out like a beacon.”
