Philosophy of Wicca
Amber Laine Fisher
While many books focus on spells and magic, few have comprehensively addressed the philosophical underpinnings of nature-based faiths. Philosophy of Wicca fills this void. This book details Wiccan beliefs and reveals the "how" and "why" of this burgeoning religion, exploring its place within a predominantly Christian society. Beginning with the idea of Deity and its manifestation, the book explores how Wiccans relate to the Divine. Amber Laine Fisher investigates the evolution of the soul, addressing sexuality and gender, identity, personal discovery, and transformation. Practical too, Philosophy of Wicca delves into issues faced by the Wiccan community: How to practice within a Judeo-Christian society, how to reconcile abstract theology with daily living, and how to make difficult moral choices within such a loosely structured religion. Drawing upon poetry, history, and myth, Amber opens multiple doors of understanding into the complexities of Wicca. Philosophy, language, and practice come together in Philosophy of Wicca to illuminate Wiccan theology like never before.
Amber Laine Fisher has been a practicing Wiccan for nearly a decade. She runs MothersMagic, a popular online community where pagans and nonpagans come together for interfaith dialogue. She lives in Austin, Texas.
