"In Restoring the Goddess Barbara G. Walker presents "thealogy," an alternative to the traditional patriarchal mythology, compatible with women's essential role in society and free of all the superstition and demeaning imagery characteristic of traditional male-dominated religion. Replacing the academic study of the god concept, this down-to-earth "knowledge of the Goddess" incorporates the scientific understanding of the universe, recognizes the purely symbolic nature of religious concepts, and celebrates the innate and singular power of the female to create and bear life."--Jacket
