For paranormal researchers into myth, it is good to see that the Book of Lilith is available again. Lilith has haunted the mind of humans since the dawn of time when humans could conceive of and discuss demons.
Lilith, oftentimes described at a long haired demon of the night, is found in Sumerian, Babylonian, Assyrian, Canaanite, Persian, Hebrew, Arabic, and Teutonic mythology. Lilith is many things throughout history, such as Adam's consort in the story of Adam and Eve, a child killer, a highly skilled seductress, and an evil energy. The themes of sexuality are explored.
Lilith is also seen as a motherless form of the feminine self. She is the embodiment of the rejected aspects of the Great Goddess. Lilith is also known as Adamah, that part of the self which today's women need to be connected with in order to avoid being spiritual outcasts.
A Jungian analyst and clinical psychologist, Barbara Koltuv has created an accurate, concise, and highly readable classic about the legend known as Lilith. The illustrations, photos, and bibliography are topnotch. The writing is expressive, logical, and interesting to read.
For those wanting a study of Lilith, this is the best one available in its complete approach, and analysis. Everything you want to know about Lilith is found in these pages. This a fine, entertaining, and informative reading experience!
