In this intriguing dialogue, an established pagan and a respected Christian theologian engage in open, honest conversations about human spirituality and belief. Paganism is a rapidly expanding belief system, and this helpful exchange both introduces novices to its basic tenets and compares them to the beliefs and ideals behind Christianity.

Offering a fair assessment and valuable insights into both faith systems, this is an engaging look at the state of belief in the modern world.

Beyond the Burning Times: A Pagan and Christian in Dialogue 2.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

As the editor of this volume I am biased, but as a fair minded reader can see by the anonymous reviews below with 1 star, the reviews aren't serious attempts to engage with the volume. This book is the first attempt in print to bring together a Christian and Pagan for respectful dialogue over real differences. It has been well received by members of both religious communities and it represents a way forward beyond ignoring each other, or worse, demonizing and misrepresenting each other.
