I want to mention Llewellyn because for many years they were the publishers of many pithy works concerning the Pagan Path. Sometimes the books were very pithy and not worth anyone’s time. In this case, they have made quite a departure and have garnered something that should be moved from the new age/occult section to the religion section.
No nonsense, and very clear – this books is what I wish I would have read when I first started my pagan path. The writing is ‘to the point” and does not waste your time with any excess text.
I have often looked for works that I can give to non-pagan relatives so that they might be able to clearly have Paganism defined for them. This book is the book that I would put in my Library and know it is an excellent resource for students who want to get an example of the beliefs of the Pagan path. While there are some great works on paganism (Drawing Down the Moon is one such example) this book particularly has the distinction of being easy to read, with a clear format and a language that can be read by anyone -without extraneous exclusive jargon.
If you want to read a book on the path that is refreshing and also enlightening, this is the one you should choose. It also would be a welcome addition to any private Library that wants to have a definitive work that can explain Paganism to others.
John Beckett is a deep thinker and an insightful writer, and "The Path of Paganism" is an excellent introduction to his work. I hope it is the first of many books from him.
if not thee best that I have ever read. This is the book I would want non-pagans to read first, It is the first impression I would want people to have.
It is very intelligent and asks questions that will challenge you and make you think. I would have every pagan read it. I would especially have every pagan group read it and discuss it together. The chapter on magic should be required reading for every beginner to the path. This is a very important book for the pagan community. I hope it wins many awards because it deserves them.
