I've been disappointed before and want to find the best books about the story of Lilith, and Lilith in general - have you read a good book about her ? Could you please recommend and tell about your fave Lilith book(s). Thank you  :vhappywitch: I don't want to dig through a shelf of religious scriptures but a book just about her or something similar.

Sorry, not a book, but a site I have found useful. http://www.lilithgal...library/lilith/

IMO Lilith is the epitome of a scape goat scenario and is widely misunderstood. Historically she is the penultimate target of fear and anger towards figure of woman in general, especially the nonconformist woman. In modern society she is again misconstrued into a pop culture icon that highlights only one aspect of her.

I’m sure there are some good books out there, but when all is said and done, getting to know her yourself may be the most effective strategy if that’s something that you feel is right for you.

I too am curious if there are any good book recommendations though. :)
