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.

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.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.
