Overview

Wicca is America’s fastest growing religion. By the year 2012, it’s projected to be the third largest religion in the United States.

In Generation Hex, Marla Alupoaicei and Dillon Burroughs explore the history, culture, and practices of Wicca. As part of their research, they interviewed travelers to historic Salem, Massachusetts, consulted practitioners of leading neopagan conferences in the Pacific Northwest and Canada, and dialogued with several current and former adherents of Wicca and other forms of witchcraft to evaluate the past and present of this growing spiritual tradition.

The result is a compelling account that will inform and equip Christians (especially parents) to understand Wiccan and New Age teachings. Readers will have confidence to explain this belief system to others and to communicate the gospel to those caught up in this practice.

Generation Hex identifies with the spiritual hunger of a generation seeking truth, authenticity, and hope in a fragmented world. It’s perfect for personal study or as a gift for anyone interested or involved in Wicca.

    There just to scared

    It's not just that it's there kids, there scared BECAUSE it is the fastest growing religion in America. there afraid of becoming the minority. It wasn't bad enough that they persecuted and killed nearly all forms of magical practice and paganism in most of the world in several bloody wars. Were not the ones that massacred your people because of difference of belief. Wicca is a religion of love and peace untainted by the blood of innocence. I wish I could say the same about Christianity...

    Pagan and Damn Proud

    I haven't read the book, but the reviews speak a lot about what the book probably says. I can't believe another christianity vs. paganism book is out there. Paganism isn't for everyone! It's a religion of nature, light, love and unity! It comes with it's own rules, morals and guidelines! We don't need a boogyman to keep us in line, but rather than responsiblity for our actions and realize that maturity is needed in the real world! I am DEFINITLY getting this book. If you need supervision, scare tatics and threats to stay in line, then that's fine!!! Paganism don't use those! I am pagan and damn proud of it. You can read inserts online on some websites of this. Something like this makes me smolder, because of the injustice of it. The back of the book says, "Wicca and it's followers are not to be feared. They are to be looked upon with compassion and offered the truth of the gospel with gentleness and respect..." as well as "It's not just about exposing darkness. It's also about lighting a candle in the midst of the darkness, realizing that Jesus has called us Christians to be a light in our world..." We don't push paganism on anyone. There are no converts in paganism. I've never been so insulted or infuriated by any text in my entire life. Darkness?! The TRUTH of the gospel? Have they even done their research?! With legit pagans? We're not predators in the dark, waiting to eat little kids. We take care of our initiats, and make it clear what it REALLY is. We lay down the lines. If you have problems with your kids, then it's your fault! Please stop writing pagan bashing books because you can't keep your kids in line! We have a right to rever creation! Everything in nature is divine! Start talking to REAL pagans, instead of just picking up a book and assuming things! We don't believe in hurting others! 'Perfect Love and Perfect Trust' 'Merry Meet and Merry Part' Do those phrases mean nothing? ALRIGHT! I'm going to stop RIGHT now, before I give myself a heart attack...

    subtle dangers??

    I haven't read this book, nor do i plan to. I cannot believe anyone would call such a beautiful, non judgemental, peaceful, harmonious religion dangerous. Its called live and let live and to each his own. At least we believe in higher powers and consequences for our actions, go pick on a real cause. Global warming, frankenfood, polar bears going extinct, pollution, genocide, that should keep you busy on a worthy mission.

    Why bash us?

    Wiccans do not bash christians for being christians, one thing we do not agree with is the fact that you claim to be the " only " religion...which in fact your religion is based on the old religion of paganism anyways, just twisted real good to make anyone who does not agree with you to look evil!! Don't hate on us because we believe something that you believe to be different than you...to each your own and in the end you are not the judge of anyone...and Goddess knows i hope your karmic debt in the next life isn't as cruel as your hatred is in this life!!!!! Blessed Be!

    Generation Hex - A MUST Read

    There is an old saying, 'People are hurt more by things that they don't know than things they know.' This book, 'Generation Hex,' was written to inform people about the dangers of the religion, Wicca. In this book I learned: 1) Wicca is the fasting growing religion in America. 2) About two thirds of Wiccans are female. 3) Wicca is a form of witchcraft, a pagan, earth-based religion. Wicca centers on the protection and worship of the God, the Goddess, and nature. 4) In 1986, 'The Church of Wicca' was officially declared a religion by a U.S. Federal Appeals Court. Wiccan holidays and practices now have legal protection in the U.S. and other countries. 5) Wicca is an 'easy' religion. The sinful nature of mankind is not addressed. Wiccans do not believe in Satan or hell. Consequently there is no emphasis on repentance. 6) Wiccans belive that both the God and the Goddess possess a dark side, in contrast with the God of the Bible. I John 1:5 states: 'God is light, and there is no darkness in Him.' 7) The true Biblical principles of salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ are disregarded. The basis of God's relationship with mankind, as stated in John 3:16, 'For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life,' is ignored by Wiccans. 8) However, Dillon Burroughs and Marla Alupoaicei, authors of Generation Hex, are adamant to stress that God loves Wiccans. It's always His plan that people turn their hearts to Him, and that no one will perish spiritually. This book is a must-read. Every parent with a child over the age of 8 needs to read this book. Every teenager needs to read this book. Be informed about the subtle dangers of Wicca by reading Generation Hex.

    Nicely done as a resource for Christians.

    As a former witch, I always appreciate it when a book of this nature comes out that is both factually based, and non-hysterical in style. 'Generation Hex' fits the bill quite refreshingly on both counts. I have to admit that I was somewhat skeptical when I saw the credentials of the authors involved, as many Christians who have tried to write such a work have fallen far short of the mark, and these two were never personally involved in the Craft! I stand humbly amazed by their transparency about having to relearn who Wiccans are, rather than run with pre-conceived notions that are prevalent in the church as a whole. Generation Hex has many good points to it's credit, not the least of which are their quotes from some of the Wiccans that were interviewed during the research phase. I have also found that Generation Hex deals fairly with both the common beliefs of Wicca and with the cultural backdrop that helps influence our young people to make the choices necessary for walking a magick path. An especially nice touch was including a chapter written by a former witch. In short, I highly recommend Generation Hex as informative and well written. Mark Bishop Coracle Ministries

    A Very Important Read

    Generation Hex opened has my eyes to the number of individuals that have chosen Wicca as their religion. I work alone at home, and I am not around young people, and had no idea the number of youth that are exposed to and practicing Wicca. I know I am not alone in this. Thus, I am delighted that this book was written, so that more of us do become aware. I feel as if the book paints a good picture of Wicca, and why people may choose to practice Wicca. I am now better prepared to discuss Wicca with others, and why Wicca is not compatible with Christian doctrine. I feel as if the approach of ¿speaking the truth in love¿ is key. This is a great tool for parents, but also for anyone that wants to learn more about Wicca, in order to better share the gospel with others. I would be interested in learning even more details about Wicca¿possibly in future books to come?

    What you don¿t know could be important¿

    Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for ReviewYourBook.com Generation Hex is divided into two sections. ¿What is Wicca?¿ and ¿What Should I Do About Wicca?¿ This books major focus is comparing Wicca to Christianity. Young people are drawn to this ¿religion.¿ It is one of the fastest growing ¿religions¿ in America. ¿By the year 2012 it will be America¿s third largest religion.¿ Generation Hex is well written and easy to understand. I believe it is important for all Christians to become more informed on this topic. Chapter 14 is probably the most important chapter in this book. I encourage all Christians to read this book.
