There was a time when the gods were an important part of humankind's life. Men and women worshiped their deities in search of protection, health, good harvests, and everything that was the responsibility of some god. In Ancient Egypt, the Egyptians promoted great festivals, rituals, and ceremonies dedicated to the dozens of gods in their culture, among whom we can highlight Isis, Osiris, Ra, and Horus. In Greece, the Olympian gods played an even more active role on earth. Greek mythology is rich in stories that tell how the gods related to the Greek people, sometimes even talking and passing on their knowledge directly to them. The Norse people greatly valued the inhabitants of the kingdom of Asgard, such as the great Odin, the strong Thor, and the brave Frey, offering them sacrifices in exchange for prosperity, safe travel, among others. These and so many other gods were forgotten with the advent of the Christian era, and their cult was virtually extinct. This book attempts to rescue the memory of the major Egyptian, Greek and Norse gods through tales and legends that tell their stories and adventures.
