They say things like this is hateful, bigoted, etc.
If they had actually read the book they would know the love and compassion these authors genuinely have for pagans. It shines throughout the book and is unmistakable. I would very much like to thank the authors for writing this book & helping me understand paganism better.
As a former Wiccan and current Christian, I thought this book was excellent. It was fair and honest...I didn't find it sensationalized at all. Knowing pagans, the fact that the authors use the word "most" before saying things like "most Wiccans don't believe in Satan" is wise, because I'm certain some do. Some pagans combine Christianity and paganism...anything is possible as far as beliefs go for this group of people.
I'm not sure how I feel about the Harry Potter chapter, but it was interesting and a perspective that is worth considering. I really like how the authors seem to feel genuine concern for those into paganism and aren't condemning in their tone. I think they have exactly the correct attitude and approach for reaching Pagans... I used to expect to be condemned and looked down upon by Christians and I would put an armor up as soon as I had to deal with one...if someone would have spoken to me with love and concern like the authors suggest in this book, it would have thrown me off guard. I would have been confused about a Christian behaving in a Christ- like manner and maybe that would have allowed me to hear the message of Christ instead of being defensive. I Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in this subject .
The research, such as it is, seems fragmentary. Issues that should be covered in detail are given a cursory description, followed by a weak excuse or dismissal.
This book is not as obviously bad as some Christian books on Wicca and the Craft I could list. But it isn't even an acceptable level of fair and honest. It serves to give the parent just enough facts on Wicca to not immediately have their prohibitions and fears blow up in their faces when they confront their teen, but omits telling the Christian parent enough so that the teenager can't fail to notice the distortions and reject the "concerned" parent, particularly after the mandatory book and objects destruction such parents tend to do to "cleanse" the home for their Abrahamic god.
The only reason books like this even have only partial info on Wicca is because Wicca is too widespread, too well known, for the old distortions, Christian lies and self righteous smugness to work on even n newbie Wiccans. One issue the authors dance around repeatedly is the fundie Christian intolerance response to Wiccans and other Pagans. Various minor instances are mentioned but as is usual for Christian books of this ilk, the authors fail to issue a strong rebuke or condemnation, and major examples of Christian intolerance are "mysteriously" omitted.
Usual gutless, slanted Christian oriented book with haphazard "research" and questionable veracity. Any Christian parent who tries to follow the advice therein might in their good intentions do more harm than good. Proof that half ignorance is almost as bad as total ignorance.
