For those considering the ebook version: I read the ebook version and I found it to be well formatted. No issues with it at all.
This book is perfect for anyone who has been questioning the confusion and restriction of Christianity, but has been too frightened or even guilt stricken to leave the confines of their birth religion. For those who have already taken this adventure, it serves as a reminder of the subtle influences Christianity has in perspective and judgement on our society as a whole and how easily we can fall prey to it again, even after having forcibly removed ourselves from that lifestyle.
She logically and methodically dismantles all the many shackles with which scripture and organized religion keeps people bound and away from exploring alternate spirituality. Pointing out inconsistencies, plain errors, and all the many things that are not the way they ought to be, she shows that the church has been remarkably inept in putting its teachings and message into modern perspective, failed to show how they apply to modern life, or why they should remain relevant at all.
This description of how to free oneself from all those shackles, covered in three of the book's four sections, is what sets this book apart. It's really about the cutting the cords of Christian dogma, a challenge that is so difficult for many who seek to find themselves and engage in different exploration of spirituality.
In the fourth section, the author presents what's changed for her in regard to viewing the Divine and what hasn't. She then explains what drew her to Witchcraft and provides an interesting overview of Witchcraft, its tenets, concepts, symbolisms, holidays, as well as its uneasy relationship with the media and society at large.
Overall an altogether terrific and eminently readable book on a topic that I have no stake in other than my own concerns about organized religion and my appreciation of free thought, exploration, and a deep belief that anything is possible.
