Captivating Stories of the Ancient Olympians and Titans
Did you know that Zeus loved many women, both goddesses and mortals?
Did you know that he turned himself into golden rain for one damsel who was locked away in a tower, and turned himself into a swan for another beauty?
Did you know that he kidnapped one young princess which led to her brother founding the city of Thebes?
And did you know that, to protect his own power, Zeus swallowed his first wife, just as Cronus had swallowed his own children in a previous age?
Greek myth is full of fascinating tales of Titans and Olympian gods. Some of it makes us wonder if there might be some hint of truth behind those stories, no matter how outrageous they may sound. What parts of those stories were merely symbolic and what parts were literal?
This book contains a brief, but unconventional look at the Titans and Olympian gods of Greek mythology. Brief, because a thorough treatment of these legendary super beings could take thousands of pages. Unconventional, because digging for truth is far more interesting than reciting old stories which have little relevance to us today. Attempting to reveal some semblance of truth brings the stories to life. It gives them relevance to our modern world. Here, we will look at many of the more fascinating stories which kept the Greek mortals entertained for hundreds of years. After all, they didn’t have iPhones and computer tablets.
Within this book's pages, you'll find the answers to these questions and more. Just some of the questions and topics covered include

Unfortunately, just a book of wild speculation about a real Atlantis.15
A great, fast read. Made me want more. Some help with definitions of names would be useful. I hate to mispronounce names.55
good for beginners, some pages are a bit too detailed haha. but i recommend this book45
This book was very interesting and thought provoking. It offered ideas and theologies that I have never seen implemented before. I for one never thought that these classic myths may actually have some sort of truth behind them. Now that I have read it, it’s opened my eyes to seeing that though they may not have existed in a literal since, the Greek myths and legends could have been inspired by true events or theologies of the time. The idea of the City of Atlantis and its correlation to the Greeks, as well as the influences it may have had on their culture is something I am definitely interested in reading more about. I will absolutely be rereading this to understand certain concepts better.55
Educational and entertaining!! Will 100% read again to understand certain parts better.55
