Book Review: The Wiccan Prayer Book
I wasn’t really fond of this book. I like the idea very much — to create a Book of Common Prayer for Wiccans, so to speak — but I didn’t like the execution. To me these all read like adapted Christian prayers, grounded in Christian and not Pagan ethics, just with two deities and not one. And for those who resent gender essentialism, it was absolutely dripping from the pages of this in that the Goddess was always asked for very traditionally “feminine” things, and the the God was asked for very traditionally “masculine” things. Not at all my cup of tea. But it wasn’t a bad book, and for a Christo-Pagan or a Pagan from a Christian background, this would probably have a lot of meaning for you.
