Authors of Wicca
« on: June 24, 2011, 02:49:10 AM »
I am currently reading a book by a Scott Cunningham, I am wondering if he is recommended? Does anyone have any suggestions for books that help explain Wicca? I would prefer book that are pro-Wicca and pro-exploration. Please and Thank you.

I would suggest the following reading to start with,

Paul Tuitean & Estelle Daniels, "Essential Wicca"

Eileen Holland, "Spells for the Solitary Witch"

Margot Adler, "Drawing down the moon: Witches, Druids, Goddess worshipers and other Pagans in America today" and the Wonderful World of Witchcraft"

Raymond Buckland, "Buckland's complete book of Witchcraft"

Deborah Blake, "Circle, Coven & Grove" and "Everyday Witch A to Z: An Amusing, Inspiring & Informative Guide to  to the Wonderful World of Witchcraft"

Silver Ravenwolf, "Teen Witch: Wicca for a new generation"

Shanddaramon, "Self-initiation for the Solitary Witch: Attaining higher spirituality through a five-degree system"

Scott Cunningham, "Wicca: A guide for the solitary practitioner"

Starhawk, "Spiral dance: A rebirth of the ancient religion of the Great Goddess"

MyDigitalpoint gave some excellent suggestions for books.
I see that you mentioned that you are reading book by Scott Cunningham. He was a wonderful man. Many, many years ago when I began to study Wicca, I found that Scott Cunningham's book, "Wicca: A guide for the solitary practitioner" was extremely helpful for me. I held onto that book for years. He explains things in a very simple way, and it felt as if a friend was 'speaking' to me, through this book. I don't know if you have that one already, but another book of his,  "Living Wicca: A Further Guide for the Solitary Practitioner" is very good as well.

I did own the Raymond Buckland book "Buckland's complete book of Witchcraft", and it was quite informative. But in my own personal opinion, I preferred Scott Cunningham's books.

Good luck though, I hope that whichever book(s) you do decide to check into, they are helpful for you!
Blessed Be!
