Synopses & Reviews
More than 18 million people have traveled to the tiny Bosnian village of Medjugorje to witness daily apparitions of the Virgin Mary and experience her healing powers. Author Judith Lambert, a skeptic, was among them. Events that occurred during her four pilgrimages there between 1986 and 1991, however convinced her that Mary is not only present but "everones goddess," a culmination of the sacred feminine throughout history who loves and nurtures all of humanity. Judith sets herself a challenge in A Mother Goddess For Our Times, as she tackles history, religion, and metaphysics, uniting them against all odds. Her treatment is an adventuresome way of bridging pagan and traditional beliefs that modifies all our preconceived notions of Catholicism. Judith's premise rest on the idea that the Virgin Mary of today is really a composite figure of all the Goddesses that went before her and taps varied viewpoints to capture the whole tradition from which Mary springs. With this book, Goddess culture comes into community with Marian phenomena via experiential weave. All readers will be empowered from what they read;freed from the chains and shackles of history Mary emerges a Goddess for our times.
