Is There a Witch’s Bible?

A reader asks, “I was recently in a local Pagan shop and saw a book that was called The Witch’s Bible. In fact, there were THREE books available, all by different authors, with similar titles. I’m confused – I didn’t think there was an actual bible for witches. Which one is the real one that I should buy?”

 

Answer:

Here’s the thing. Because “witchcraft” is not one universal, codified set of beliefs and practices, it’s impossible to put together any sort of Big Book O’ Rules that will apply to all people who practice witchcraft. Several authors – at least five that I can think of just off the top of my head – have used the word “bible” in their book about witchcraft or Wicca. Does that mean that one is wrong and four are correct? Not hardly.
