Reviews

In a companion work to their previous volume Goddess (LJ 10/15/94), the authors present the concept of the god through the ages. Illustrated by myths of many different times and lands, the continuous mystery of life seems always transformed into human forms. Whether shaman, trickster, creator, or consort of the goddess, the male principle pervades all religions. This book provides a popularized version derived from much previous scholarship but is also a fresh and readable account. The illustrations and bibliography are excellent. For public libraries.‘Jeanne S. Bagby, formerly with Tucson P.L., Ariz.

"The kind of insight these two old Princeton boys derived from their magnificent book Goddess has been profitably used to look at God: Myths of the Male Divine. The result is more entertaining, a lot more profitable than screeds on the masculine mystique. Men want to be gods as much as women want to be goddesses. Here's how."-Paul Bohannan, author of We, the Alien: An Introduction to Cultural Anthropology "Building upon the market impact created by their Goddesses: Myths of the Female Divine, Leeming and Page continue their exploration of evolving divine archetypes from prehistory to the present by focusing with an equal effectiveness on masculine metaphors."-Publishers Weekly "In a companion work to their previous volume Goddess, the authors present the concept of god through the ages. Illustrated by myths of many different times and lands, the continuous mystery of life seems always transformed into human forms. Whether shaman, trickster, creator, or consort of the goddess, the male principle pervades all religions.... A fresh and readable account."-Library Journal "For an overview of the major themes in a male God's life there is nothing comparable. Even the classic works of Joseph Campbell lack the clarity and organization of these works to bring out the salient features of the deity's life."-The Reader's Review
