For centuries, the patriarchal order of the church has led institutionalized religion to emphasize the significance of the male - but what about the female? More than just a subservient helpmate to her lordly counterpart, the woman has played no less important a role in the shaping of our collective religious and cultural history - but how would you ever know? Throughout the pages of Her Story, author Annabel Lindy delves deep into the historical origins of the Divine Feminine, uncovering the roots of the Great Goddess as she was originally experienced. Bolstering Lindy's efforts are her extensive travels to various sacred sites around the world, as well as a critical analysis of ancient biblical and mythological text. In clear, bold, and powerful language, Her Story paints a compelling picture of an eye-opening spiritual legacy from which we all stand to benefit. As such, through her findings, Lindy has provided the world with a much needed balanced perspective with greater focus on the holistic spiritual - and less on the compartmentalized religious. A thoroughly enlightening read. Dominique Sessons Apex Reviews
