Publisher LBI Institute has released a new edition of the gospel depicting Jesus as a woman and God as a female.
Most everyone elses gender was left untouched, although the new text contains The Parable of the Prodigal Daughter and The Ladys Prayer instead of The Lords Prayer.
The publishers vice president, Billie Shakespeare, says the reason for the girlie Good Book is to reflect the rising role of women in society.
Shakespeare figures the Miss Messiah will be useful to ministers and rabbis who are already referring to God in the female gender.
He says there are some people who wont accept it, and thats fine.
