  • Personally any book by Laurie Cabot, Scott Cunningham or Starhawk would be a good start. The History of Witchraft(the revised edition) is also a great book.

  • For a seasoned Pagan, I would reccomend "The Element Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells"

  • Ok for the christian wanting to stay christian bt learn more scott cunningham has a great book called "The truth about witchcraft today" which was written for this purpose and is excellent at teaching about without teaching the religion.

    For the Beginner witch (any witch really but excellent for begginers) hands down its "the Goodly Spellbook" by Lady Passion and Diuvei. The book starts with the history, the basics of the wheel of the year and the correspondences, goes into simple divination, numbers, chants and charms and on and on and on and focuses on the science behind how spells work and the reason certain methods are used. The second half is the spells with explainations as to where they originated from and why they work as well as substitutions and also why those would work.

    For the expert I would say any of Penzaks Temple series. Good stuff.

    As for the exploring former christian I am still thinking.

  • I always suggest Scott Cunningham for those newly interested in Paganism. His "Guide for the Solitary Practitioner" is like my bible. I also suggest "The Everything Paganism Book" and "Paganism for Dummies". The titles are silly but the information is great.

    Found this doing a web search. I was looking for a book that I heard of a few years ago, but can't seem to remember the title. It was for Pagans to share with their christians friends to understand our beliefs a little better.

    Not sure if this is the type of book you are looking for as you aren't looking to "convert" so to speak, but it sounds like a good read to me.

  • To all of these questions I would suggest one book... The Everything Paganism Book... It breaks everything down in to laymans terms while provideing an awesome amount of information. I would also recommend The Idiots Guides and The Dummies Series. Both also have books for Pagan intresets as well as books for spacific paths and subjects. They are written for those that have no understanding and yet will help even the most knowledgable.
