The modern pagan revival is one of the fastest growing religious movements on the planet. Yet it continues to be misunderstood by those Christian institutions that condemn, and in some case demonize, pagan beliefs and practices.
In Paganism & Christianity, the Pagan Awareness Network’s Gavin Andrew examines the reasons why paganism has traditionally been reviled, uncovering some of the lesser-known aspects of Christian history. This concise resource explores Christianity's deep entanglement with European and Middle-Eastern indigenous beliefs, and reveals the basis for Christian attitudes toward modern paganism.
More than simply an apologist or accusatory text, Paganism & Christianity challenges the reader to remove those rose-colored glasses with which pagans and Christians alike often view their own histories. Through examination of Scripture, ancient texts and the works of modern-day scholars, Gavin Andrew untangles a narrative that many Fundamentalist Christians, and some pagans, have interpreted as a spiritual war between irreconcilable enemies.
