“[Gods of the Runes] . . . gifts us, with a bold new understanding of the runes that resonates deeply with the primal spirituality from which they emerged. The system is easy to learn, a joy to work with and very rich in depth.”
“At last we have a handy reference, lavishly illustrated, that tells the reader which god or goddess corresponds with which rune, for the entire Futhark. Gods of the Runes should be in every occultist’s library.”
“Frank Joseph’s Gods of the Runes: The Divine Shapers of Fate is a charming and unconventional introduction to runes. Joseph explores the celestial origins of the runes by revealing the major myths of the twenty-four Norse Gods and Goddesses on which the runes are based. Each rune’s God or Goddess is introduced with an engaging story displaying their personalities and key attributes. Ian Daniels provides stunning illustrations of each God or Goddess, including eight full color illustrations, deepen your understanding of this ancient art.”
“Fully illustrated, Mr. Joseph's work enables access to a personal connection with the 24 Norse deities, the Gods of the Runes. If your interests lie in this direction, I would highly recommend this book.”
“It is always a pleasure to review works by Frank Joseph. In this case a double pleasure . . . Mr. Joseph brings a welcome new insight into runology due to his deep research into the origins of the symbols themselves, their names, and the Norse gods they embody in a compressed form. . .This work is enhanced by the exquisite illustrations of well-known fantasy artist Ian Daniels.”

The Runes represent the stories of Norse Gods. Each one has a histroy. This book brings them to life, rather than just, this rune means "travel". I enjoyed this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
