  1. I am Muslim and My favorit book is the The Holy Quran that confirms the virgin birth in (a chapter of the Quran is entitled “Mary”), and Mary is considered to have been one of the purest women in all creation. The Quran describes Jesus’ birth as follows:
    “Behold!’ the Angel said, God has chosen you, and purified you, and chosen you above the women of all nations.”
    [Noble Quran 3:42]
    “Mary, God gives you good news of a word from Him, whose name shall be the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, honored in this world and in the Hereafter, and one of those brought near to God. He shall speak to the people from his cradle and in maturity, and he shall be of the righteous. She said: “My Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has touched me?’ He said: “Even so; God creates what He will. When He decrees a thing, He says to it, ‘Be!’ and it is.”
    [Noble Quran 3:45-47]
    Muslims believe that Jesus was born immaculately, and through the same power which had brought Eve to life and Adam into being without a father or a mother.
    “Truly, the likeness of Jesus with God is as the likeness of Adam. He created him of dust, and then said to him, ‘Be!’ and he was.”
    [Noble Quran 3:59]
    During his prophetic mission, Jesus performed many miracles. The Quran tells us that he said:
    “I have come to you with a sign from your Lord: I make for you out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it and it becomes a bird by God’s leave. And I heal the blind, and the lepers, and I raise the dead by God’s leave.”
    [Noble Quran 3:49]
    Muhammad and Jesus, as well as the other prophets, were sent to confirm the belief in one God. This is referred to in the Quran where Jesus is reported as saying that he came:
    “To attest the law which was before me, and to make lawful to you part of what was forbidden you; I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, so fear God and obey me.”
    [Noble Quran 3:50]
    Prophet Muhammad emphasized the importance of Jesus by saying: “Whoever believes there is no god but Allah, alone without partner, that Muhammad is His messenger, that Jesus is a servant and messenger of God, His word breathed into Mary and a spirit emanating from Him, and that Paradise and Hell are true, shall be received by God into Heaven.
    [Bukhari]

  2. I don’t really have a favorite author, but I really like Konstantinos. My favorite book is Solitary Wicca for Life by Arin Murphy-Hiscock. It got me over that Wicca 101 hump that many Solitaries deal with.

  3. “Solitary Wicca For Life: Complete Guide to Mastering the Craft on Your Own” by Arin Murphy-Hiscock. She’s not my favorite author as I love many of them equally, but this book is amazing. I’m a solitary Wiccan that is very eclectic, and her beliefs are so similar to mine, unlike many traditional Wiccan authors.

  4. I think Ellen Cannon Reed is right now. I still have so much on my reading list so that could change lol. Everytime I read one book I add on about 4 more.

  5. I’m grooving on the number of Authors who are putting out books on “Green Witchcraft” right now. Except when I saw that hose beast $RW jumped on the band wagon.

  6. Ly DeAngeles
    My favourite is probably “When I see the Wild God” its informative and reflects a lot of what I believe.
    I cannot wait to get a copy of “Of Flesh & Spirit”

  7. Which book is my favorite varies on a daily basis. Basically, as long as the author is not slandering anyone or lying, or offending some subgroup to mae a buck, I’m okay with it.
    I think Bucky’s big blue is perfectly serviceable. It gets silly at times, and his use of runes is wanky, but I don’t think it does any harm….
    I think Hutton’s works are the most consistent.
