Book Review: The Truth about Witchcraft Today by Scott Cunningham, first published in 1987
This is actually an “oldie but goodie” as far as #witchbooks go but I will never understand this cover. Ever. 😆
Someone said maybe it looks like this to convey that yes, even “young women in 1980s businesswear with jobs that require briefcases can be and are witches.” 🤔🤷🏼♀️
I guess back then, as now, there’s all sorts of people about with the misconception that witchcraft has anything to do with devil-worship? When anyone with an ounce of sense knows that the fictional entity called “the devil” is a purely Christian construct.
A poet friend, @gildedy made me remember this cover because she has a whole other cover to submit to the “Misleading Covers Sweepstakes” so thanks for the inspo, Gilmore.
This short but comprehensive books, first published over 35 years ago, has a lot of information that is still relevant today. I think it’s a good place to start for self-described baby witches, or others who are magick/pagan/witch curious.
It’s is still available for sale, and I bought mine at Better World Books, but you can also find it on Amazon and other online book sellers.
