Naming the Goddess
Naming the Goddess is written by over eighty adherents and scholars of Goddess Spirituality
This wide-ranging anthology includes contributions from Selena Fox, Kathy Jones, Caroline Wise and Rachel Patterson. Part 1 is a series of critical essays focusing upon contemporary goddess issues. Part 2 is a spiritual gazetteer featuring over seventy goddesses.
I have two essays in this lovely anthology, one about the Anglo-Saxon goddess Eostre and one titled "The Warrior Way: The goddess as a role model for women in politics." As you can probably tell, this book is very relevant for our times and provides not just a look at a number of fascinating goddesses, but also a penetrating examination of the way Goddess Spirituality brings meaning and focus into our lives.
You can find Naming the Goddess at:

Paperback $20.95 / £11.99

Reader love for Naming the Goddess:
Naming the Goddess is a delightful read, answering questions and raising them, from a variety of perspectives, all grounded in personal experiences, often in years of seeking and finding the Goddess and Goddesses. There is something here for everyone, for those new to the Goddess and for those who know Her. I especially liked the reflections with which the book begins and appreciated the catalogue of Goddesses written by different people who understood the different Goddesses from their different standpoints.

This collection of writings is so rich and diverse, it could be of interest to anyone seeking the essence of the divine, whether polytheist, pantheist, monist, or otherwise, and whether their principle understanding of deity is gendered female or otherwise. Indeed perhaps it is in that very diversity, in the cracks of divergence, that the sacred is most potent, accessible and enthralling.
