Great book! Very thought provoking. Had a Statue of Liberty in my home and quickly got rid of it. It's not invited back....
1886, at the unveiling ceremony, President Grover Cleveland praised Bartholdi's goddess statue as greater than all that have been celebrated in ancient song. But Rhoades goes beyond the historical data and examines the statue's pagan origins by analyzing Scripture. He establishes that the most revealing chroniclers of the Statue of Liberty were the Hebrew prophets who predicted the building and setting of an image of the Great Goddess of the ancient world on her own pedestal in a latter day country code-named the land of Shinar. Discover the real origins of the Statue of Liberty, its adoption by the American people as a national icon and its historical and biblical significance in Lady Liberty: The Ancient Goddess of America.
