Today's witches want you to see witchcraft as a respectable religion, a sensible worldview. They want you to see witches as "the pagan next door", not as hags in black, riding brooms on a moonlit night. But there is more to this pagan PR than demolishing stereotypes. A storm is brewing on the religious horizon. The church must be prepared.
In the last three decades, Hawkins writes, America and much of Western Europe have seen a resurgence of the occult, including witchcraft and other forms of neopaganism. He provides sound evaluation of a growing religion whose occultic views and practices can be deceptive. Hawkins defines witchcraft, what it is and isn't, and explains its rituals and beliefs, including magic, sacramental sex, reincarnation, and goddess worship.
