    1. A book that beginner pagans need to be exposed to early on, as it is understands and intimates the reader with what the mind of a pagan is. This should become a staple. Colin Cleary captures much of what would be considered "core" theology in the heathen religion.This book focuses mainly on philosophy and the justifications and implications for a spiritual tradition that is often as hard to nail as water. I would recommend this book to any pagan. I might also recommend it to atheists or even adh [...]

    2. Dense. Very dense. The chapters I liked were worth the entire book; I will be returning to the one on the runes often. The chapter on the "missing man" in Norse legend discussed Norse myth in light of the reconstructed. Indo-European and that was another essay that just dazzled me. About half were not so useful as they discussed authors and one film director. whose work I do not yet know. I recommend this book only part way.

    3. An interesting mix of philosophy and general categorisation of pagan belief and the entities most commonly worshipped (with some recourse to the Greeks and Romans thrown in to good effect). A few interesting chapters on Elder Futhark and how to interpret the runes.The author is clearly a scholar and incorporates his philosophical background into his beliefs. I enjoyed it, and I think anyone with a more eclectic interest in pagan beliefs and philosophy will enjoy this book.
