Riassunto: Those interested in the history of myth and religion may be interested in this examination of the roots of the modern patriarchal religions. It claims they often lie in the older myths of multi-faceted pagan gods. Arguing that the modern orthodox God is an echo of the original pagan god - who may be found in Celtic, Greek, Tibetan and other beliefs - D.J. Conway provides examples of older myths that have survived under the sheen of a modern religion. Perhaps most notable of these is the story of Christ's birth. Clues are given to help the reader find traces of these myths in modern scriptures, to find hidden stories of that original archetypal pagan entity - the "Lord of Light and Shadow".
Recensione: I was hesitant to explore this book for fear that I would find another text that falls prey to stereotypical constructions of male deities in orthodox religions, but positive experiences with D. J. Conway's other books spurred me on. I'm glad I didn't pass it up. Conway makes a courageous move, breaking down misconceptions shrouding the true nature of the ancient pagan god, and revealing the importance of balancing the aspects of the Goddess with those of her companion. If you're hesitant to embrace the male aspects of paganism, this book may change your mind and open the door to a balanced and complete spiritual growth.
