      'Paganism' is an evocative word that, even today, conjures up deep-seated emotions and prejudices. Until recently, it was primarily a derogatory term used by Christians to describe the non-Christian cultures confronted and vanquished by their Churches. For some it evokes images of sacrifice and barbaric behaviour, while for others it symbolises a peace-loving, nature-worshipping spiritual. The Rise of Neo-Paganism This movement has created a battle raging worldwide for the soul of the Anglican expression of Christian faith. Like other times in the history of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church, many leaders in the present-day Anglican Church have drifted away from their biblical roots, catholic heritage, and evangelical.

    Neo-Pagans are a community of faiths bringing ancient Pagan and magickal traditions to the modern age--including mostly Wicca but also Druidism, Asatru, Shamanism, neo-Native American, and more.   This book the the culmination of 15 years of research and direct experience with Neo-Paganism. Neo-Paganism is a new religious movement, the central characteristics of which are a perception of divinity as immanent, a multiplicity of deities, both feminine and masculine, a commitment to environmental responsibility, and a creative approach to.
