Witchcraft Today - 60 Years On - Trevor Greenfield

Edited by Trevor Greenfield and introduced by Rachel Patterson this book was put together to mark 60 Years after the publication of Gerald Gardner's Witchcraft today'. How ever awkward a figure Gardner is for some, the impact of his work in terms of making witchcraft visible and available, cannot be denied.

 

A lot has changed since Gardner wrote his book, and this title explores that. Here's a bit of a review roundup...

 

"This is an amazing book – now to be clear this is not a how-to book on witchcraft or by any means a book of spells or rituals. In some ways this book is more important than just another magick book as this is a book of history and progress."

"I found it useful to read them in light of my own story and feel that any one coming into paganism would find it comforting and illuminating to do the same. Often people describe an early sense of loneliness which I think can be dispelled in these stories." full review here - https://knotmagick101.wordpress.com/2014/07/04/book-review-witchcraft-today-60-years-on-2/comment-page-1/#comment-318

 

"This is a timely addition to Pagan literature, highly recommended to anyone interested in the modern heritage of witchcraft, paganism and new (or new old) spiritual movements more generally." https://contemplativeinquiry.wordpress.com/2014/07/04/book-review-witchcraft-today-60-years-on/
