I have used several of these contributions successfully in an undergraduate course on American Neopaganism and Witchcraft. This volume will be especially valuable for advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses dealing with women's issues, feminism and goddess spirituality. Specialists will find some of the essays to be invaluable for particular research problems, either because they report information not available elsewhere and/or because they present novel issues or perspectives. Altogether, then, this volume makes important contributions to the emergent literature on goddess spirituality and religion. -- Danny L. Jorgensen, (University of South Florida) * Sociology of Religion: A Quarterly Review *
Offers a diverse view of the chaotically celebratory goddess spirituality movement. While healing and empowerment remain at the heart of each chapter, authors arrive at ways of gaining women's strength through a number of creative avenues. -- Georgie Ann Weatherby, (Gonzaga University) * Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion *
The book is a delight to read. It is thoroughly accessible, well organised and engaging, and will serve its intended readership well-classes in women's studies, religious studies, and the sociology of religion. It will undoubtedly be read with pleasure and interest by the many participants in the movement at large, and of course by scholars working in this area. The inclusions are varied, yet well-integrated in line with the book's theme, and the blend of academic and practioners' voices works well. Theoretical discussion is anchored firmly in the research finding of the authors and is often movingly illustrated. -- Kathryn Rountree, (Massey University, Auckland, New Zealand) * Journal of Contemporary Religion *
