Format:Paperback
The female aspect of the divine has been neglected for a long time, but in this book the Farrars have managed to shed a lot of light on the subject, withouth taking anything away from the masculine.
Split into three sections, the first covering the archetypal roles of the goddess, the second looking more closely at a few goddesses from around the world and the third acting as an encycolpedia for the diverse Goddesses that are and have been worshipped around the world.
For those with a Pagan leaning the second section also contains suggested rituals and prayers for how to approach particular Goddesses.
This is a truly brilliant book if you ever felt that you needed a little bit of an extra female touch in your life, or if you are just interested in mythology.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for necessarily for anthropology students, but great for inspiration 10 Jan. 2006
By Chasmodai - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read the reviews about the historical accuracy of this book, and the one thing that stood out among the naysayers is that no one recommended a more accurate or better book.

There are many books on the Goddess, but few that contain so many in one volume, and few that try to cover a broad range of cultures and themes. For example, you can buy books about Mother Goddesses, or Goddesses of a particular culture. Most books on the Goddess cover fewer Goddesses. In order to rival the information covered in this book, one would need to collect Goddess books for years.

However, if you wish to focus on one Goddess or one culture, this is probably not the most helpful book for that purpose. In my opinion, this is more of a "big picture" book.

Regarding the historical accuracy of the book, my perception is that this book was written through the lenses of the Wiccan belief system, using what historical information was believed at the time.

It was first released in 1987. My copy was printed eleven years ago. Since the first release, there has been a firestorm of debate over the historical accuracy of much of popular Pagan beliefs.

I think that it's helpful to remember that while we do need to understand Paganism with historical accuracy, we also have the power to create a new myth. We just need to understand the difference. Just my opinion.

I think this item is a classic and a staple on nearly every Pagan bookshelf. Even if you don't agree with every single statement made in the book, it's good to read it just to know what the fuss is about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource 13 May 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book should be on every Witch's shelf. Not only do the Farrars do an in-depth study of the many faces of the Goddess and the archetypes, but also a corresponding ritual for each. Also included is a glossary of many Goddesses for different pantheons. Well worth the money

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! It shows the many faces of the Female Divine 12 Feb. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It is by far one of the most complete works on the Goddess.
Starting out with the most simple concept of Goddess the book explores the many faces of the goddess tieing them togather not only with each other but also with womankind and her relationship with the divine, nature and herself. Included are several wonderfull reciepies for incense food, ect. Along with different rituals dthat will bring about a greater understanding of our relationship with the Great Mother. An added bonus is the last section that lists many of the differnt goddess' from every culture. A must read for all women Wiccan or not!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential For Every Goddess Follower 14 July 2000
By Lady AutumnStar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Straightforward, fact-based, packed with information. This book sorts out the fact from the fiction in relation to the Wiccan Belief System. I loved the huge catalog of Goddesses from diverse cultures, and I also liked that this book wasn't full of fluff and pseudo-spellmaking drivel. Really, every beginning witch should read this. The Farrars put this together very well, and they know their topic inside-out!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Quintessential Book Of The Goddess 6 Nov. 2001
By Nancy V. Callow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you need to understand the Goddess in any of her many guises, this is the book for you. This book is perfect for those beginning Wicca and even for those who have been in the craft for years. As a HPS I find this book a joy to read, and even if you think you know it all, there are some things in here that you will learn. The perfect book to help you pick a Godess name.
