This timely, robust and provocative examination of the pivotal and enduring place of Goddess within the Jewish and Christian faith traditions is deeply inspiring. Laurie Martin-Gardner’s textual analysis brings a refreshing re-framing of the continual presence, devotion to, and existence of Goddess despite the myriad attempts to destroy or hide her. This book brings to life the reality of Goddess, past and present. It is a valuable resource for scholars of all religions traditions and readers interested to know more about Goddess while simultaneously offering a powerful new perspective for Goddess loving readers. ~ Dr Lynne Sedgmore CBE, Poetess, Priestess and Founder of Goddess Luminary Wheel
