By A Customer on August 18, 2003
This book is a wonderful reference for those wanting to learn about sun goddeses. the book is well researched and very entertaining. the author provides myth and evidence of sun goddesses from many different cultures all over the world. she also spends time debunking the belief that all goddesses are moon or earth goddesses and that the sun is alway male. she does a very good job at this, showing how and why these misconceptions arose.the author calls herself a "spiritual feminist" but she seems to be hostile towards neo-paganism. she seems to be fancinated with sun goddesses but she doesn't believe in them. a disturbing quote from the book about the sun and the moon is "they are as inane as two house bricks: they are not persons, they are less than persons. They only have divine...qualities insofar as humans choose to give such qualities to them". for pagans, who believe the univesre is indeed divine, comments like these can offend. another problem i had with the book was the way the author seems to want to redefine many goddesses as sun goddesses without real evidence. such as when the moon is a god she says that his wife is probably a sun goddess. this seems like a huge leap to take for someone who prides herself on the rational.despite the draw backs this book is really indespensible to those who want to understand the Goddess in her totality. for those who want to learn more about moon gods, the book is not as complete on that subject. the author really devotes the vast majority of the book to sun goddesses. in the end i am more than convinced that goddesses are the sun at least as much as they are the moon.i highly recommend this book to all pagans, goddess wimmin, and lovers of mythology. it really is a very good book and extremely valuble for its scholarship.

The Sun is not always masculine; the Moon not always feminine. Great resource of myths from various cultures.
