A new book promoting religious tolerance through education, Wicca: What’s the Real Deal?

Just released by Schiffer Book in July 2011, Wicca: What’s the Real Deal? is already getting reviews that are suggesting that the book is ideal for a wide audience. According to Rebecca Elson, this book is suitable for High Priests and Priestesses as a book that they can offer to their coven members who are addressing the concerns of friends, family members, and loved ones. Further, since the book points out the advantages and disadvantages of begin Wiccan, Wicca: What’s the Real Deal? is suitable for anyone new to the Wiccan faith or to those individuals thinking about taking up Wiccan practices and studies. In her review, Rebecca Elson cautions readers not to dismiss Wicca: What’s the Real Deal? as a Wiccan’s basic 101 book. Rebecca asserts:
“‘Wicca: What’s the Real Deal?” could easily be mistaken as another “Wicca 101″ book at first glance, and …readers being well versed in Wicca or practicing Wiccans themselves, may find themselves dismissing this book a bit too soon. With its straight forward myth/truth format and easy to follow explanations of the basics of Wicca and being Wiccan, this book is, in my opinion, a must own for many people.”
