Today, many people consider Witchcraft to be one of the fastest-growing religions in the world. Articles in newspapers and magazines, as well as movies and shows on television, are filled with Witchcraft. Or rather, what is supposed to be Witchcraft.
I have been involved with Witchcraft for over a quarter of a century and am surprised and disappointed that Wicca is still misunderstood, feared, and even hated.
We asked Scott Cunningham to write The Truth About Witchcraft Today to help dispel misconceptions and give honest answers to those seeking to follow the Wiccan way. Already, over 135,000 people have used this book for one or both of these purposes. If you're interested in becoming a Witch, or want to know the truth about what Witches do, you should get this book too.
This is not meant to be an in-depth study of Wicca. It is an introductory book so you can have the basics: What takes place in Wiccan rituals? What type of magic do Witches use? What holidays do Witches celebrate? What are the deities worshiped by Wiccans?
It's all revealed here, and it's done in the easy-to-read, understandable style that has helped to make Cunningham famous.
One of the purposes I have always hoped this book would fulfill is to help younger people let their parents and friends know that they aren't doing anything illegal or immoral. (In fact, real Witchcraft is a highly ethical religion which stresses personal responsibility for one's actions.) This book will help explain exactly what they are doing.
So, if your parents or friends are open to hearing about what you do and what you believe, here is the perfect book to give to them. It may counter any doubt or distrust. And opening any person's mind to the truth is a good thing in and of itself.
