When God Was A Woman
Merlin Stone 1976 302p 5.5 x 8
While most readers of this book are likely familiar with the concepts in the first three chapters, starting with chapter four, ‘The Northern Invaders’, When God Was A Woman goes into details similar to Against His-Story, Against Leviathan! in regards to the first inklings of civilizations, but in some ways with more detail and specific examples. Stone also gets into the emergence and possible origins of ultra-patriarchal societies and religions—eventually settling on an exploration of judeo-christian values.
