"A book or collection of writings constituting the sacred text of a religion."
--The American HeritageŽ Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition

For thousands of years, we have been told that God was a man. Then someone reminded us of when God was a woman. Now we have a reference for the sensible folk who have always felt that it takes two. If you have ever thought there was more to religion than ancient rituals performed for reasons unknown, this book will show you exactly what you have been looking for. If you have already come to the realization that Wicca is the religion for you, this book will help fill those many blanks that have been left by other books.

Author A.J. Drew makes no attempt to dictate religious dogma or routine. He is quick to point

out that the title does not start with the word the. He illustrates the many issues a person's religion should address and shows how he has been able to find answers to those issues through the practice of a modern religion that was based on some of the oldest principles of the ancient world.

A Wiccan Bible takes you through the journey of life in three stages:
  • Maiden and Master: Creation, Wiccaning, and Self-dedication.
  • Mother and Father: Initiation, Handfasting/Handparting, and the Wheel of the Year.
  • Crone and Sage: Community, the world, and death

    Mythology and science converge as the author details a life's journey into a religion with both old world ritual and new world science, fusing both into a creation myth which satisfies not only mind, but soul as well. A Wiccan Bible not only shows a religious path filled with joy, but one that offers the ability to accept and manage sorrow. It is filled with ritual and with the reasons why ritual is fulfilling, rewarding, and a necessary part of everyday life. As A.J. addresses each issue, he demonstrates not only how he found the solutions in Wicca, and the many ways in which science and magick have helped him to do so. A Wiccan Bible also contains select recipes that the author has collected, including mixtures for incense, oils, and baths.
