If one doesn't mind this type of format, his book is absolutely full of valuable information. It's great to read both sides of the issue of Goddess worship, neo-paganism, and wicca. However, I personally prefer a flowing prose format which more naturally connects each section of the book. Hawkins' book would be invaluable in a church class/instructional setting for family and friends to gain a better insight and understanding into their loved ones' involvement in Goddess worship, neo-paganism, or witchcraft/wicca.
The thing that Celtic Witch and the other "negative" reviewers have to get over is that Christianity makes an "absolute truth" claim. Christians make that claim, because Christ made the claim about himself in John 14:6. We don't believe that neopaganism is a path to God in whatever shape/form/etc. that people take him/her to be. Another big problem that Christians have with neopaganism is in its use of magick, which is condemned in the Bible. Any kind of occultic worldview whether it be New Age, Satanism, Wiccan, etc. butts heads against Christianity, because of the "truth claims" they make which contradict what Christianity teaches.
Celtic Witch and the group most likely are not going to agree with the "truth claims" of Christianity, but they have to understand that we don't agree with the claims of their neopaganistic beliefs either. I am not a relativist nor do I believe that relativism is really a tenable belief.Read more ›
