This is a lucid, well-written and engaging book, and a timely one, bringing together many different aspects of the current Goddess movement and doing so in a way that encourages thought and discussion. . . I dare say the book will become even more useful as the years pass. . . .there’s discussion of thealogy, usefully giving us definitions and ways to understand “Goddess” both theologically and sociologically. Judith Laura isn’t afraid to deal with controversial material and meet challenges and I’m grateful for that...I’d recommend it to all kinds of people – anyone studying Goddess, who wants to understand the past and learn how the current Goddess spirituality movement got started, but even more so to anyone who wants to think about where we’re going, and how we can all influence that direction. ~Geraldine Charles, Goddess Pages, Winter 2012
The author, who has long experience in the Goddess movement as both a participant and a writer, has written a forward-thinking text about what Goddess spirituality is and what it can become in the next few decades. Laura champions the evolution of Goddess spirituality into a legitimate religion with a concern for inclusiveness in language and practice....One of the lovely metaphors Laura uses to describe Goddess is Goddess as flow. She lyrically describes, "Goddess is the flow of rivers to the sea, the flow of our blood, the flow of love between people, and the flow of air in breeze, hurricane and jet stream. She is what connects us,not only like a link in a chain but also like an electrical current." This characterizes Goddess as natural, kinetic, and dynamic. She is part of All, and All is part of her. What an empowering, joyful feeling that evokes! ~Linda Kerby, SageWoman, Spring 2012
...solid material and extremely readable. ~Rachel Pollack, author of The Body of the Goddess and Tarot Wisdom
Goddess Matters is a welcome addition to the Goddess spirituality library. Judith Laura has identified a variety of topics which many of us have been discussing informally for a long time. It is great to see these brought together under one cover, with informed critique, as a resource which will both challenge and inspire our discussions and deliberations into the future. ~Patricia Rose, Ph.D., co-author of Gaia Emerging: Goddess Beliefs and Practices in Australia
It’s the ideal book to dip in and out of when you don’t have time to settle down with a long read, and it also provides the stimulus for thought-provoking ideas of Goddess practice and theory in the world today. ~Cheryl Straffon, Goddess Alive!
