Overview

From the ashes arises the sacred lore of the North, the ancient stories and proverbial wisdom of the Ásatrú religion. Mighty Gods and fierce Giants battle in the never-ending struggle between order and chaos, while men seek honor and glory in the eyes of their beloved deities. After many years of research and piecing together sources, now comes the first known holy text ever presented for the Ásatrú faith. Giving these ancestral accounts in their true, epic form, The Ásatrú Edda is designed as a religious work by and for the men and women of this path. In reconstructing this sacred epic, the idea is to create a living storytelling tradition that will honor the legacy of the ancient Teutonic peoples, while providing an in-depth source of Ásatrú wisdom for our modern world.

    A superb religious tool

    From the most traditional heathen to the the most interpretive, from new convert to born-heathen devotees this book is a must read for everyone. I'm not saying it won't anger some people - many of the ideas here are solidly supported by the societies intense research but not widely accepted, and many offer a startling concert to what is very commonly accepted lore. This book makes sense, it's easy to read, complete and completely supported by what lore sources we have.

    An Essential Text

    I hope that this becomes the shared text of the Asatru community. If you don't have this in your library you are missing out.
