I think the reason for this is simple. The others were written by outsiders. Raven has been a practitioner for over a quarter of a century, the period during which the Craft has experienced its largest and fastest growth spurt. As a result, this book is an important resource for a wide variety of people.
Are you new to the Craft? In this book you'll find history and lore, personalities and places so you can become more steeped in the history, theology, philosophy, and magick of your tradition.
Are you a long-time Pagan? Here you will find pictures of famous occultists throughout history and the impact they had on the development and growth of modern Witchcraft. You'll also learn about famous modern Pagans and writers and be able to compare different traditions.
Are you a researcher? If you are looking for factual information about Pagan holidays, ancient sources, individuals, beliefs, and practices, this book can be your primary tool.
In short, if you are involved in Wicca or Witchcraft in any way, this book is a necessity for your bookshelf. This is the book everyone is going to be quoting. This is the book everyone is going to be talking about. When anyone has a question about Wicca or Witchcraft, this is the first place they'll look. Don't be left out!

Included is everything from terminology to history, folklore and pre-Christian paganism. The book presents a wide range of practices and beliefs both ancient and modern. Also included are biographies of well-known figures along with information on a large number of traditions and organizations. No collection of books on Wicca and Witchcraft would be complete without this encyclopedia!!
Raven Grimassi has filled the void in wicca and witchcraft reference material. Encyclopedia of Wicca and Witchcraft is packed with 470 pages of knowledge, everything from pantheons, histories, historical and sacred sites, invocations and rites to biographies of some of the most influential practioners, past and present.
You could read ten books and still not get as much information as you will find inside the covers of the Encyclopedia of Wicca and Witchcraft. This reference work would be a plus with classes, covens or a private library. Use it for reference or use it for enjoyment. Either way you go you will become enlightened.
I cannot find a more useful tool then the Encyclopedia of Wicca and Witchcraft. It is a must have for personal use, reference in your practices and beliefs, covens, circles or groves. It would be a wonderful addition to classrooms and libraries.

The encyclopedia is a must for any witch's library and will be of invaluable service to anyone researching the religion of Wicca/Witchcraft or just seeking to understand it on a deeper level. This is a complete book covering the witches' tools, beliefs and practices, connections to European paganism, deities, aspects of magick, and much, much more!
