Anyone know of a good book about the Wiccan Goddess?

Please do not trust the “Sweep” series. They are novels. They are *fiction*. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying fiction but you shouldn’t confuse it with non-fiction!

Well, as I understand it, the Goddess is a Great
primordial Goddess from whom all of the later
specific goddesses evolved. She is often simply
thought of as “the Goddess” or some people
like to give Her a name and will pick the deity
that they personally identify with. That’s often a
matter of their ethnic background or sometimes
just a personal preference based on what they
have read.

Hecate is one of the most popular names for
Her, as Hecate was regarded as a goddess of
witches in the middle-ages.

Blessed Be,

Jean

Check out some of the titles available from Pentacle Press.

My local library has a Wicca and Witchcraft for Dummies that had a lot of the basic information in it…might try your library 🙂

I loved the Sweep series by Cate Tiernan also, which was actually what led me to look into other books on the subject.
