finding the good and beautiful
This is a moving, well written story among some of the world's greatest living goddess traditions. Rather than looking into the past for goddesses to admire, Galland looks to divine women of Christianity and Buddhism. And though it may be surprising to some, these are powerful, inspiring, popular religions. Galland finds the age of the goddess alive and well. She takes these traditions as she finds them. Many devotees take their goddesses as supernatural beings, made of a spiritual substance, and able to respond to prayers. Others see the divine women as historical, literary, or psychological realities. Galland does not tell you what to think, she just appreciates what's good and beautiful.Was this review helpful?
