Product Description

"Occult phenomena in general, and witchcraft in particular, are on the rise in our culture as a wave of neopaganism crashes on the shores of contemporary Western thought and life. Witchcraft is a timely, well-researched contribution to the ongoing struggle about religious ideas currently being waged in our society." So says J.P. Moreland regarding Craig Hawkins' book Witchcraft: Exploring the World of Wicca. Will you agree with this assessment of the value of this book? Very likely you will.

Hawkins is a well-respected researcher and apologist, and he wrote this book to show people several very important things: what witches themselves say about their beliefs and practices; what the Bible says about all forms of witchcraft; what some of the philosophical holes in the worldview of witches and in Wicca are. He quotes extensively from primary Wiccan and witchcraft sources regarding their own beliefs, thus offering one of the most accurate descriptions of the beliefs and practices of the Wiccan and witchcraft movements.

What sets this book apart is its combination of primary source material, a biblical critique of Wicca and witchcraft, and a philosophical critique of the Wiccan worldview. The biblical argument against witchcraft and neopaganism is fairly clear; what few people may see are the epistemological problems in the Wiccan worldview. By the logical standards of consistency and liveability, Wicca falls short on several major issues, particularly in ethics and morality.

What did Hawkins hope to accomplish with this book? It was not enough for him to just portray witchcraft in an accurate manner. Hawkins wanted to enable Christians to truly understand Wicca and witchcraft, so they can reach out to their Wiccan and neopagan neighbors with the love of God. This book goes a long way in providing that understanding, and in fostering a greater desire to reach out to those involved in Wicca and witchcraft.
