Book: "Call of the God"


CALL OF THE GOD:
An Anthology Exploring the Divine Masculine within Modern Paganism

Over the last 10 or so years there has been an influx of material about the Goddess, the divine feminine. And while this is wonderful and much needed in certain sections where people are only know realising that there was such as focus, has it come at the cost of the God, the divine masculine?

Even within Paganism, the focus has largely been on the Goddess as opposed to the God. In some traditions, the divine masculine is merely treated as a second class citizen (behind his beloved consort), in other traditions he has been banished altogether.
 
Lurking amongst the shadows, slipping through our nightmares, teasing our peripheral vision, or simply crashing into our ordered lives, the Pagan God makes His presence felt in many ways.
 
From prehistoric paintings to the mystical wilderness of Arcadia, the power of the Pagan God can still be felt in this modern age as the beat of His hooves upon the earth entice us to reclaim the true power of the Divine Masculine.
 
Call of the God: An Anthology Exploring the Divine Masculine within Modern Paganism is a unique smorgasbord of essays, poems, fiction and artwork depicting the numerous manifestations of the God and how the Divine Masculine is depicted within modern Paganism around the world.
