The Wiccan

Wednesday, December 29, 2010
She didn't know much about Wicca. She just knew Wicca had something to do with witchcraft. And in a few hours she'd be face-to-face with what's-her-name from The Hex.

Book: The Wiccan by Bill Myers, Tyndale House Publishers, 2003
Genre: Supernatural/Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 13+
Subjects: Occult, Spiritual Warfare, Friendship, Wicca
Summary: Rebecca really does not want to go to her best friend's birthday party - but with good reason! The girl who tried to kill her last year will be there and got them all tickets to the occult bookstore where they will meet with the star from the TV Show: The Hex - a show about a girl who promotes Wicca. Becca's friends have all bought into this, even after what Julie experienced she still thinks that this is innocent. After all, the star says it is, so that makes it true right? When Laura asks for help casting a spell, everyone gets a slightly different perspective of Wicca and how "harmless" it is.
Notes: This book brings up a somewhat controversial form of the occult: Wicca. Those who practice Wicca like to claim it is harmless, innocent, good. However, just like any other form of the occult, it is inviting the evil one to take control of your life and as Scotty says in this book: "They're opening themselves up to demons. And demons don't mess around. Sooner or later they'll destroy you".
Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

1 Timothy 4:1 - The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
