Books for the Beginner

Post  NakaliRivers on Thu Feb 16, 2012 7:24 pm

I thought I'd bring up some good reading material for the young souls who are out there wondering where they can get a good start, and those who are on their path, and looking to rephresh some knowledge. This topic will follow a list of books you can purchase that will help you on your path, and help you get a good base of knowledge.

)Paganism: An Introduction Into Earth-Centered Religions(
Authors: Joyce and River Higginbotham


This is an amazing book to start out with, and actually, the one that got me into paganism. It will teach you what paganism is, how it is defined, it's members, and how to practice. I can't say much more about it, other than if you have no knowledge of the religion, and would like to start, this is a great way to start.

)The Wicca Handbook(
Author: Eileen Holland


This book quite honestly, would be my number one choice for anyone interested even remotely in Wicca, and becoming a witch. "Paganism: An Introduction into Earth-Centered religions" is a book for people who want to become more familiar with exactly that, earth centered religions in a whole. This book however, takes it from paganism, to a whole other level, this dives into the definition of what a witch is, God and Goddess, incense, past lives, astrology, and so much more. Even including, if I'm positive, tea recipes, and hints on how to better use tools in the craft. If I had to suggest a book for ANYONE here interested in Wicca, please, please pick up this book, I'm currently in the middle of reading parts of it, and it is a fantastically written book, and highly informative, taking people who know absolutely nothing of Wicca, and informing them on everything that has to do with the religion.
