For those with some understanding of the Kabbalah, this richly referenced paperback book addresses the Wisdom Goddess in B.C.E. Judaism. She had a prominent role which, unfortunately, has become rather diminished due to problematic cross-cultural translations and over more recent generations. Asherah, Sophia, and the cross-cultural Divine Feminine are connected historically. Christians studying the Old Testament and mystics can also benefit from reading this book. The Cosmic Shekinah helps shed some light on how the religious feminine started developing negative connotations, which have needed correcting. Interesting and fully recommended.

This is a must get title along with Sophia, godess of wisdom, Bride of Christ, On the Wings of Shekhnah. As a historian, one presumes we have no idea what the Shekinah glory as found in the Bible is. This show the lack of understanding of the modern man of the cloth when it comes to how the early church taught, what the early Jews believed. These three books shows a plethora, indeed a goldmine of information on this subject. It is modern mans lack of knowledge and personal bias that makes this topic hard to understand. I recommend you grab these three title and go back to how the early church and early Jews viewed this all important topic.

You can always count on d'Este and Rankine to produce a solid, well-researched work on whatever topic they choose. THE COSMIC SHEKINAH is no different. For such a short book, it is packed with documented and noted information, with an exhaustive bibliography for the more curious. They discuss the precursors of the Shekinah and her progeny, as well as goddess figures that might have inspired or are at least parallel to the Shekinah. The book's biggest weakness comes in its connection to Kabbalah and the Tree of Life--not that it isn't well-researched; it simply is not beginner's information. To fully understand this book, it is necessary to have a working knowledge of the Kabbalah already, as no real background information is provided in these sections.

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!

Beautiful book, very well written. The only thing I missed was illustrations, when reading it I just googled for pictures of the statues and monuments mentioned in the book and I hope the writers will include them in their next print/issue. A book definitely worth reading! The vast knowledge of the authors of the material they discuss is brought in easy manner - but while reading you will not only get an understanding of the evolution of Sophia, but some interesting insights in kabalistic thinking as well.

great book for those interested in the Wisdom Goddess and Her manifestations throughout various cultures and spiritual traditions. great foundation for further exploration of Jewish mysticism. As always, the bibliography is an excellent source of other reading material to explore.

A history of the Goddess it is, so you would not be wasting your money if you bought this book. I read it a while ago, but I remember thouroughly enjoying it. Very informative, too.
