5.0 out of 5 stars Not the "occult" Catholicism your Protestant vicar warned you about..., January 14, 2016
If you are an orthodox Christian occultist, this is your book. There are many definitions of "magic". Arguments by mainstream, orthodox clergy against "magic" usually fall along side polemics against "superstition", lumping the two together. It is argued that no 'real' Christian would mix himself up with the mysteries of magic, which they automatically equate with "the deep things of Satan". "The Magic of Catholicism" is not a book of spells or sorcery, but of Divine theurgy. Brother Ada outlines the Roman Catholic Church's magisterium and places it along side what has been called "lawful enchantment" -- in this case, the use of sacramentals and intercessory prayer as ways of making the bendable world bend (as some might define "magic"). To some extent, this is the magic of one's Catholic aged aunt or grandmother who had a knack at praying practical results into being. However, what Br Ada presents is more than a folksy approach but a full 'high magic' system that is not only theistically friendly, but faithful to the orthodox creeds of the Christian faith. Today we are mainly at a loss for decent works on Christian magic (which prior to the Victorian Era was actually the norm), having to wade through a glut of Gnosticism, Neo-Paganism, Neo-Heathenry, Wicca, Satanism, and "metaphysical atheist" led forms of theory and praxis leaving the neophyte to wonder if that's all there is to occultism. "The Magic of Catholicism" will come as a breath of fresh air to Christians who wish to take up the occult arts but do not wish to abandon their faith in order to do so. This work will also be invaluable to students and practitioners of European folk magic as so much of that work arose out of Medieval Roman Catholicism.

This is an indispensable prayer book for those interested in praying in the Old Believer tradition, or just for researching and comparing to newer Orthodox praxes. I know Fr German Ciuba, one of the compilers/editors, who I am lucky to have as a neighbor.

Magic of the Ordinary has some interesting points. I found Winkler's descriptions of God very interesting. However, there are elements that are quite idiosyncratic and try too hard to fit into Native American models, wording, phrases, etc.

I have no wordy review for this book. It is excellent. If one is interested in Iberian or folk Catholic magic, this is a valuable asset to one's personal research library.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an awesome aesthetically pleasing compendium of history and workings with St Expeditus. My only complaint is that there are too many instances of typos and poor editing, which I found skewed and strangely altered many prayers. That is not good for someone not familiar with the proper wording of Catholic prayers, who will repeat these oversights verbatim.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good intro book for those who want to get started, October 13, 2014
This review is from: The Powwow Grimoire (Paperback)
I highly recommend the latest work of braucher Rob Chapman, "The Powwow Grimoire". Chapman's writing style is very accessible and reader friendly. He does a good job communicating the essentials for some one to get started in powwowing. Chapman also adds much of his own personalized material that he developed out of hands-on practice as a powwower. There is also just enough cultural material for a new person to the subject not to feel overwhelmed, but just enough to be informed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Info packed, January 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am not finished reading this book, but I am impressed with the amount of information Mishev packed inside of it. The only issue I have with the book is not the author's fault. This would be the English translation work. The text is awkward in places and it requires one to reread those passages. Having done such research myself, I can say that what Mishev has put together is no small amount of work. He has truly done some 'heavy lifting' here.
