Arin Murphy-Hiscock’s latest book, “Wicca: A Modern Practitioner’s Guide”, is impressive in many ways. For starters, Adams Media did a wonderful job formatting the book. A beautiful hardcover book perfectly sized to carry around in a handbag or backpack. Once inside you realize Murphy-Hiscock has taken on a daunting task of defining Wicca. She starts out explaining that Wicca is not an ancient religion, despite what some people may tell you. Murphy-Hiscock painstakingly details the origins of a Wicca and the many ways it differs from witchcraft or other pagan traditions.
The author explains that “Wicca” was intended as a much-needed book to deal with the next level of Wicca practice. However, she discusses spells, sacred space, grounding, and more, which all provide nice information for beginners. Honestly, I have never seen such a thorough, well thought out, explanation of the beliefs and practices of Wicca. Arin Murphy-Hiscock has written a beautiful classic for anyone interested in Wicca.
