the Wake of the Goddesses
Women, Culture and the Biblical Transformation of Pagan Myth
The first seven
chapters and Introduction constitute perhaps the most scholarly and complete
study of the Divine Feminine in Ancient Mesopotamia. Rarely is such a
blend of Assyriology, Biblical and feminist scholarship so masterly put
together, remarkable for its vigor and conviction, a classic in all aspects.
I highly recommend this book, and sincerely believe it is a classic difficult to be replaced for many years to come.
