Alexander's study of the contemporary fascination with witchcraft clarifies a lot of confusion surrounding this subject. He untangles the historical misconceptions that have contributed to the confusion, revealing that the current Neo-pagan movement is of relatively recent vintage, despite its claim of a direct continuity with an ancient tradition. The book is thorough yet concise, profound without being ponderous, committed to a Christian worldview without being preachy.

Midnight Shadows -- you might take the time to actually read the book, instead of just going ballistic over the title. None of the lurid characterizations you invoke actually apply to the text itself.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Why are all of these anti-Wicca books so popular? Especially since all of them teach lies and old stereotypes! I could write a similar book except pointing out all of the dark parts of Christianity in revenge, but the way I see it is that it will only incite anger and promote the idea that all Christians are like that. Though I can't see why those Christians can't have the decency to respect us and let us go on our way without having to deal with all of your uninformed assumptions. The only impact it should have is a positive one, if someone finds happiness in it! We're not out to take over the world! We just want harmony!
