THE FACES OF GOD
Canaanite Mythology as Hebrew Theology
Paperback original, 120 pages, $17.50
The Hebrew bible stole with both hands from Canaanite myth (proof was dug up in Syria in 1928). Biblical scholars agreed to reinter the evidence to maintain the “literal” truth of the Scripture—be it as certain revelation or as dubious historical data.But the Bible is as full of Pagan mythology as a snakes egg is of snake. Here you'll find it cited in full: the sky-gods, world-mountains, war-goddesses, and chaos-dragons—the hydra-head faces of God.
