Overview

Goddess Matters by Judith Laura

Goddess Matters: The Mystical, Practical, & Controversial, presents an in-depth look at today's global trends in Goddess spirituality and emerging Goddess religions. It received two finalist awards in the 2012 International Book Awards (in the categories "Spirituality: General" and "Women's Issues). The book covers a wide range of subjects, some of them rarely discussed in other books. These include contemporary Goddess temples and conferences, Goddess ethics, various controversies, practical approaches to sexual risks, responses to natural disasters, emerging Goddess figures in Judaism and Christianity, and cutting edge thought that relates Goddess and science. The book also has chapters on intuitive and psychic work, death and the possibility of "afterlife," various approaches to spirituality and religion, and a look at the probable future of Goddess spirituality. There are also chapters with definitions of terms used to discuss religion, and words used to describe psychic work. This is Judith Laura's third Goddess book.
