△Egyptian Mythology△
The gods of Ancient Egypt conjure up images of hieroglyphs with animal-headed people, fantastic civilizations, and a past that seems both unimaginably distant and still tenuously connected to the present day. Although the names Ra, Anubis, and Isis still linger today in modern fiction, the truth about these gods reveals the ancient Egyptians themselves.

Inside you will read about...
✓ Osiris
✓ Anubis
✓ Isis
✓ Ra
✓ Maat
✓ Hathor
✓ Wadjet
✓ Nefertum
And many more!

A look at the principal gods of Ancient Egypt gives insight into the culture of world's first great civilization. Even today, their moments, their obelisks, and their pyramids endure and remind us that people can leave lasting marks on the world that humble and inspire us all.


How I love these books by Stephan Weaver! This is my fifth book by him and just like the other four, this one I enjoyed thoroughly.

This book is (obviously) about the gods of Ancient Egypt, which happens to be my favorite topic. As always I love reading and learning more about it.

The author first talks about the Egyptian gods in general and how they fit into the life of the ancient Egyptians. I thought it was very interesting to learn how a god's popularity varried from place to place in Ancient Egypt.

Next, the author talks about the gods individually. The main gods like Horus, Osiris, Set, Isis, etc were being discussed in detail and also some of the minor gods. Those were my favorite to read about because I didn't know much about them yet.

As always I'm really glad with the author's writing. The details, the information... it always hooks me and it's very well-written. I loved it!
