"Anyone with an open, curious mind will cherish this book."
"This amazing little book is a must for any serious student of paganism, witchcraft, and the more mystical strains of Christianity. . . . There is simply too much to say about this excellent work and its truly well-researched basis. This book should be in your library and be read with interest and delight."
