The Gospel According To Lilith

“The Gospel According to Lilith” is an audio book which utilizes an historical fiction format to attract and hold student interest in the great issues in American literature.

The author, Lonnie Hicks, has written a novel which makes the argument that the bible, seen as an historical and literary work, contains many seminal, antecedent themes found in American literature, and, in American history, society and politics.

Utilizing a cross-disciplinary in approach, the audio book and study guide challenges the student to think differently about the bible and argues that the bible is one of the great pieces of American literature.

The Nova PBS special “The Bible’s Buried Secrets” gives us convincing archaeological data to support the idea that the early Israelites were egalitarian, freedom-loving and determined to create a religion and society without domination. The social structures they considered essential to this goal, are embedded were closely emulated, by none other that Thomas Jefferson, who put ideas around the importance of small egalitarian communities directly into his writings.

Notions of equality, justice and freedom are all in the bible and have animated much of western literature down the centuries even as the religious content of the old and new testaments have obscured this point.

However, new archeological evidence, recently unearthed in Israel, indicate that the early writers of the bible were not invaders in Canaan, but were likely Canaanites serfs and slaves, who created a new egalitarian society once their Egyptian overlords collapsed in what is modern day Israel.

The importance of these new discoveries cannot be underestimated.


Our traditional view of the bible must be re-considered in light of these new discoveries as well in the context of the bible as a work of literature.

That is what “The Gospel According to Lilith” achieves. This historical fiction novel, introduces the student to the new bible- the bible as a literary work. With Lilith as a narrator, the student is taken on a journey looking at the bible as a document which produced many themes directly relevant and influential American literature and social history.
