My Name is Lilith
by Monette Chilson / Illustrated by Arna Baartz (ISBN 978-1542356404)

Published by The Girl God (2017)

Timely and timeless, this retelling of the story of the world’s first woman in her own voice resurrects a lost feminine archetype in the midst of what is arguably the most powerful uprising of women in recent history. Women looking for the source of their power not found in the temptress/helpmate archetype of Eve, will find it in this lavishly illustrated picture book, written for children but relevant to the adult work of gender reconciliation and equality. Rooted in the theology and mythology of both Judaic and Christian traditions, this story of a woman demonized for her strength traces gender and the birth of patriarchy back to the dawn of time using the simple language of story rather than theory.
