Do you know teens and others who seem to be attracted to pagan practices? Have you wondered what Wicca is all about? In 10 chapters, this book researches why one would be drawn to witchcraft rather than church. Wicca’s Charm is an exploration of Wicca in America, as well as a reflection on how Christians treat Wiccans and Pagans. It is filled with background information on ritual practices of these groups; and it includes a glossary of terms that are commonly used within neo-paganism, a list of further resources, and a reader’s guide of questions for individuals or group use. Note: Wicca’s Charm could be dangerous in the hands of the faithless or the floundering as they search for meaning in a secular culture. A mature Christian should come with this book.
