Trish Deneen, an editor at Bella Online, has written a very fair and balanced review of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Paganism. What I find particularly wonderful is her frank acknowledgment that I am no longer a practicing pagan myself (“Much internet buzz had been made about Carl McColman’s conversion from Paganism to Catholicism in the last few years”), nevertheless she felt this book needed to be reviewed on its own merits. I couldn’t agree with her more. As I’ve said myself, when commenting on my books, “Even though most of them are written from a neopagan perspective — a spiritual path I no longer identify with, since being received in the Catholic Church in 2005 — I’m still proud of every one, and I hope that neopagans and people interested in neopaganism will continue to find my work in that area useful.” Trish Deneen gives me reason to believe that my hope is not in vain.
