'An excellent work, the best of the half-dozen works on Asherah available in English.' Expository Times
Judith Hadley deploys archaeological discoveries and biblical sources to examine the evidence for the worship of Asherah as the partner of God in the Bible. Her book promises to make a significant contribution to the debate about the exact nature of Asherah and her significance in pre-exilic Israel and Judah.

This book is very important, but highly specialised and a vast background knowledge of the subject matter is required. It is a difficult read, due to numerous quotes and digressions in every sentence. I admit that I struggle with it myself and still have not read it all. But I will not dismiss it for that. It is a very important book for the new archaeology and history of women's roles and reverance in mass religion. This book confirms that women were once extremely important in religion and therefore a very important book. I will conquer it one day. Ownership of this book is good enough for me at the moment. These kinds of specialist books are very crucial to the survival of women's past importance and therefore inspire confidence. I believe a major contribution to male power and confidence has been the male god and the demotion of the female god. So this book is too important to dismiss just because it is difficult to read.

Think For Yourself
Why the exorbitant price?
19 November 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Not a review, just a question. Why the exorbitant price? Does the author not wish for many people to purchase her book? At this price, no one is likely to buy it unless forced to do so by a professor for a course they are taking. I would like to read Hadley's book, but not so much that I am going to pay five or six times the cost of similar books.
