This is a great book to have for its spells and information. I love this book cause it's blunt and doesn't pretend to be what it isn't. I wanted to buy this book for years but I wasn't able to until I moved out from with my very christian parents. I love older witchcraft books that have a half & half pagan Christian mix of culture cause they the rituals always have such passion and drama. This is a book of old Christian Influenced magik, I think someone who has good common sense and is not easily offend would like this book. It's the closest thing to a spell book I have and I have a bunch of occult books and Id say it's pretty complete. Maybe that why so many modern witches don't care for it. Respect duality yo!!! lol
This book represents one if the few which actively sought to move away from the mass onslaught of Wicca during the same time. I found it incredibly enjoyable to read, albeit amusing at times. It's certainly not a "complete" book on magic and witchcraft, but it has one of the best compiled herbal sections I've ever seen. That alone raises the book two stars. Filled with absolutely fascinating spells and rituals, some of which I can only imagine would be done in times of extreme anger or desperation, and others which I have used previously, I find this book to be an invaluable reference, and an excellent addition to my unfortunately small library. I will say, the book does openly say witchcraft is Satanism which is not always the case, and presents it as being incredibly ceremonial, which it's not. However, I definitely enjoyed the book.
My sister had this book when we were young & she seemed to enjoy it. Some of the things that are in the book will still work but I believe alot of it is outdated even though I still have numerous books that are older than this one. The others I know works & are not geared to needing old outdated items in order to make the rituals, etc work.
I love this book. It contains a lot of information, easy to understand, and easy to follow...A great addition to any library on this subject.
Better than expected, thank you so much!
A great Book. Anyone into witchcraft should read this book very informative with lots of great information.I love this book
A great old fashion read and a new friend for my personal library . Thank you.
This book has good factual material taken from several sources, provides good background and decent use material. Good for quick reference material and a good read. Recommended! Definitely worth the price!
