While the authors make a case to show that the wisdom goddess couldn’t be eradicated from the Bible, D’Este and Rankine do not highlight what was lost conceptually when the Shekinah left the earth, so to speak, because they are more concerned with how she morphed and changed into other goddesses. They clearly illustrate the transition from ancient religion to Christianity in terms of Asherah, and the transition to Mother Mary is shown, although it has to be defended. --What survived from this transition was very little in terms of strength, power, and influence. The goddess loses her name. She loses her place. d’Este and Rankine focus on how Astarte/Shekinah/Asherah made the change from important goddess to background presence, and do not say what happened next. The authors provide a transitional piece that follows the goddess tradition with how it moved, mentioning, but not emphasizing, what sank into the realm of time; that is for us to discover. While not the entire story with all its remnants, this remains one of the most definitive and inscribing sources upon which the text of Shekinah is still being written, and gives guides on how the Shekinah was worshipped throughout time.
This book would be a great addition to anyone's collection on The Old Testament, Kabbalah, or goddesses. A must read for those who are pagans with a Christian flavor!
