More spiritualism, less emphasis on stuff and practices. Most books seem to talk about practices such as the proper tools, the words to say, but not so much on the traits of philosophy such as using practice to heal and evolve our spirit. I want to see more books include the fact you don’t need any ‘things’ to practice your religion at all.
More history, less speculation. I think its important to know why we do the things we do, how it got started, in what context it was used. Traditions change over time and we must weigh the worth against current events. We can’t change or adapt unless we understand why we do the things we do.
More religion, less magick. It seems so many books cover spells, magickal practices, even sharing some prayers and chants, but doesn’t really cover much depth of Goddess, the Divine, or philosophies compared to other religions.
More fun, less lecturing. I’d love to read a book that balanced fact with humor without being trite about the whole thing. Too often humor and fun gets ignored for the intellectual ideology. Words of religion should be uplifting, inspiring, not bogged down with dull history facts (and history can be fun/entertaining), or lengthy explanations.
If anyone knows of such books, please leave in comments below.
