Between the Worlds
Readings in Contemporary Neo-Paganism
Edited by Sian Reid
Between the Worlds by Sian Reid
Book DescriptionNeopaganism is the fastest growing new religion in the West. Between the World: Readings in Contemporary Neopaganism provides an engaging and well-rounded introduction to this often misunderstood spiritual tradition. This provocative new volume breaks away from the negative doomsday cult focus of existing books on new religious movements and provides a clear focus on feminist spirituality, women and religion, and goddess worship. It offers a spiritual context for paganism and introduces the "language" of paganism and earth religions. This book examines contemporary paganism - not just the "streams" from the 1970s and 1980s, but also the increasingly important "streams" of Druidry and Heathenry. For the first time ever, this book unites essential readings by leading academics and well-known practitioners from all over the world, including Canada. It features the work of Starhawk, Ronald Hutton, Michael York, Graham Harvey, Helen A. Berger, and Wendy Griffith, alongside contemporary Canadian scholars including Lucie Marie-Mai DuFresne, Lori G. Beaman, and Barbara Jane Davy.
