Living in the Lap of the Goddess by Cynthia Eller

Book Description

A fascinating introduction to one of the fastest-growing religious movements in the United States today. Through interviews, participant-observation, and analysis of movement literature, Cynthia Eller explores what women who worship the goddess believe; how they express those beliefs in private, in public, and in the political realm; and the place of feminist spirituality in the history of American religion.

Books By Author Cynthia Eller

Gentlemen and Amazons by Cynthia Eller Gentlemen and Amazons, Paperback (May 2010)

Traces the nineteenth-century genesis and development of an important contemporary myth about human origins: that of an original prehistoric matriarchy. This title explores the intellectual history of the myth, which arose from male scholars who mostly wanted to vindicate the patriarchal family model as a higher stage of human development.

Am I a Woman? by Cynthia Eller Am I a Woman?, Paperback (September 2004)

Cynthia Eller takes the reader on a tour through ideas of gender, seeing how they apply them to her own life and to the lives of the people around her - friends and parents, like herself, watching their young children behave in seemingly 'male' or 'female' ways.

Myth of the Matriarchal Prehistory by Cynthia Eller Myth of the Matriarchal Prehistory, Paperback (April 2001)

The author traces the emergence of the matriarchal myth, explains its functions, and examines the evidence for and against a matriarchal pre-history. In so doing she explains why this vision of a peaceful woman-centred pre-history is dangerous to feminists.
