In Goddess Power, Isabella Price gives voice to a lost “herstory.” This book is a great read written with such heart and dedication to the path of the Divine Feminine. The Goddess is the essential backbone for the empowered Feminine to rise. For centuries, the wisdom legacy of the Divine Feminine/Goddess has been suppressed, ignored, or distorted. But her archetypal stories hold a golden key of how to stand in a greater truth. Isabella’s profound insights and her substantial knowledge about the Goddess traditions help us to re-awaken this power in ourselves.

In the vast Goddess literature, Goddess Power stands out in several ways. With obvious appreciation and reverent delight, Isabella Price introduces us to both the lighter and darker aspects of the Goddess. Informed by her comparative, cross-cultural perspective – including Jungian psychology and integral theory – Isabella helps us relate with both discernment and devotional recognition to numerous archetypes of the Goddess. Goddess Power is groundbreaking, highly accessible 21st- century scholarship. I hope it finds many receptive readers!

I have read Isabella Price’s book Goddess Power with much joy. Steeped in the diverse and rich divine feminine traditions for two decades myself, I can confirm her depth of knowledge and her ability to write in an accessible and intelligent way. Each goddess deserves a whole book unto herself but Isabella Price was able to convey the essence of each in this gem of a book. Goddess Power reads smoothly, giving you a good taste of her manifestations, leaving you hungry for more. A worthy and beautiful book that I gladly recommend!

While reading Isabella Price’s description of Jesus of Nazareth, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this beautiful first century mystic. Based on a close analysis of the Gnostic gospels as well as the Pauline texts that have guided the mainline churches for centuries, Price emphasizes Jesus’ two-fold central message of finding the kingdom of heaven within and expressing that insight as love in action. This book is an excellent resource, in very readable form, and especially for those interested in Jesus’ teachings as they relate to integral theory, the perennial philosophy, and the mystical unity of all religions.
— Dana Sawyer, professor of religion and philosophy at Maine College of Art and, most recently, author of Huston Smith: Wisdomkeeper, the authorized biography of renowned scholar of religion.
Isabella Price brings us a fresh, clear, contemporary vision of the “unity-in-diversity” of the world’s religious traditions. In her book series One Truth, Many Paths she touches upon the universal truths and patterns running through the great religions, including indigenous spirituality. Her sensitivity testifies to her not only having studied at depth; it also expresses the greater understanding of having personally walked these noble paths.
— Reverend David McArthur, Senior Minister, Unity of Walnut Creek
Isabella Price’s One Truth, Many Paths book series debut is an impressive scholarly work and a genuine contribution to the field of comparative religion and spirituality. She takes an innovative and insightful interfaith perspective, finding common resonances among the religious traditions. Her guiding vision of revealing the underlying unity at the core of the wisdom traditions – while also acknowledging distinctive and unique features of each tradition – is very timely. A must-read!
— William Garrett, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Religion and Philosophy, John F. Kennedy University
In her book series One Truth, Many Paths on the world’s wisdom traditions, Isabella Price focuses less on what separates us but rather on what draws us together. Her work suggests that what unites us in our basic humanness is infinitely greater that what divides us. This is what establishes the foundation for World Peace. Isabella also acknowledges and honors the Divine Feminine by clearly showing us the thread running through the religious traditions that gives new significance to its role and functions across cultures. As a teacher of Truth Principles from an interfaith perspective, One Truth, Many Paths could easily become my bible.
— Sheila Gautreaux, Minister, Teacher, Speaker; Author of Praying Through a Storm and Messages
Isabella Price offers a fresh, insightful perspective on the world’s religions. She invites us to find inspiration for our own unique faith journey. And she reminds us all what we have in common with each other within our diverse faith journeys, while still maintaining integrity within our personal understanding of truth.
— Reverend John Anderson, St. John’s Presbyterian Church, San Francisco CA
Today, many people admire Jesus Christ and feel close ties to his person, life, and message – yet they have no connection with any Christian Church. Isabella Price’s Jesus Christ: The Love and Wisdom of a First-Century Mystic – which is part of her broader One Truth, Many Paths series on unitive spirituality – is a fine example of books expressing this attitude. Churched and un-churched readers may be equally grateful to Isabella for her reverent and bold exploration of Jesus’ teachings.
