As someone who teaches interpretation of symbology in spiritual work, Barbara Walker's book has been invaluable and is a major recommendation to all course participants.
I have yet to find a better book on symbology
Frankly, I think this book was churned out in order to cash in on the success of the Myths and Secrets book. A lot of the material in it is a re-hashing of that book, which I personally can't recommend enough. It really realigned my whole perception of all different kinds of religious and cultural stuff, and I sincerely recommend that if you're wondering whether or not to buy this book or that one, go get the Myths and Secrets one instead. I don't think this adds substantially to her work.
Humans in this planet deserve to learn ALL histories, not just the history the Victor wants the people to know. I will be the first to recognize hat "WE HAVE BEEN DUPED". I never would've imagined that our ancient mothers & fathers venerated & worshipped the Earth Mother Goddess as the true LORD, GOD/ GODDESS, SAVIOR, etc. This explains why these institution are full of so many different types of criminals. These men are not who they say they are. The stories they tell us are not what they say they are either. They're just business men who will stop at nothing for CONTROL, MONEY & POWER.

While the book is interesting in context, it creates a bit of an overfeminine view painting most men as misogynistic jerks. I wouldn't recommend.Published 13 months ago by Alex
