4.0 out of 5 stars Transforming 17 Feb 2003
Format:Paperback
This was an excellent read. The book begins by sharing loads of historical information regarding the Great Goddess and her worship throughout the Mediterranean. In the second section, it takes you step by step through the grades of priest/-ess. The rituals are both moving and inspiring. I am planning on using the naming ritual for my son. For anyone who experiences a call from this Goddess, I would heartily recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Standard in God/Goddess Books 6 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
With the publication of Isis Magic, M. Isidora Forrest has set a new standard by which all subsequent books devoted to a single Deity may be measured, and proven that modern Neopaganism and Goddess Spirituality is indeed capable of attaining depth and spiritual maturity.
The book is divided into two sections. The first consists of a historical survey of the worship of Isis through the ages, from antiquity to the present day, with insights worthy of academic journals, but written with the soul and insight of a practitioner, not a mere observer. The second section consists of spiritual practices-- rituals, meditations, devotions-- designed to develop a deep, rich connection with the Goddess Isis.
I recommend this book to anyone who has outgrown the endless stream of redundant introductory level books on Neopaganism and Goddess worship, and to anyone who has (or wishes to develop) a sincere and potent relationship with their Goddess or God. It's the real thing. May there come to be many more like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book Even if You're Not an Isiac 16 Mar 2003
By Stephanie Dray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used this book extensively to do some research for a book I'm writing, and it was very useful and inspiring to those ends.
But it's not really meant for people like me. It really is a lovely book for worshippers of the Isiac faith, and is aimed at becoming a practitioner. In a way, it is like an Isiac bible, with stories and versus, and educational information. It's lovely both in layout and content, and is unapologetic in its spirituality.

ISIS MAGIC
BY M. ISIDORA FORREST
Isis the Great Mother, Isis the Goddess of Magick, Isis the Lady of wisdom these titles fit her suitably. M. Isidora does a beautyful job of describing the Great Isis. She describes her worship in ancient times. How in the ancient world her worship spread throughout Egypt, Rome, Greece, Romania and many other parts of Europe. She tells the myths of Isis, her history, and how through out the ancient world and to the present about how people love and worship her. Isis is the magician, the initiater, the warrior queen, the goddess of those who travel by water, the Goddess of mothers, the Goddess of children, the Goddess of love, the Goddess of marriages, The protectress, she is this and many more things. The auther describes the plight of women in the ancient world and the history of the queens of Egypt and the famous queens the Ptolomy royal family. She describes many of Isis' aspects even her Black aspect. She tells! how the Golden Dawn and many other famous magicians adopted Her.She describes people's love and experience with the goddess Isis. She also describes how Isis became a prominent Goddess in the ancient world. She has some info on Nepthys, Osiris, Anubis, Set, Ra, Horus in this book as well. She has two parts to this book one is the information on Isis the second part is the rituals that allow you to dedicate yourseld to Isis step by step. The second part you start out as the votary of Isis, the next step is becomming the handmaiden or servent of Isis, when you are ready you become the magician of Isis, then you become the prophet/ess of Isis. Even if you have been her priest/ess of Isis for a long time or a priest/ Goddess there is nothing wrong with starting the rituals as a votary (where there is humility there is no room for the ego) The rituals in this book are lovely. The Goddess Isis is alieve in this book! For those of you who are witches/magicians you may enjoy th! is book, for those who are interested in learning about Isis or the Egyptian path than this is a great selection. For those who want to have more contact with the Goddess and the feminine power of the universe than this is a great book for you. The autho!r's love for Isis really shows by her dedication to this huge 624 page book. This book is one you probably will not be lending out at all! M. Isidora Forrest did a wonderful job with Isis Magic! She must have spent a very long time writting Isis Magic. This book is a true masterpiece. May Isis bless the author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Isis returns 15 Jun 2001
By Laurie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This has been one of the most influential books I have read. I was searching for a way to honour the Goddess [in Her guise as Isis]-a way that truly spoke to me, and I found it in this book. Even if you are not devoted solely to Isis, this book will offer you new and exciting ways to worship the goddess. I recommed for beginners who need a place to start as well as for seasoned worshippers who would like a new way to honour Her. A truly beautiful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scholarship, Ceremony, and Readability 22 Feb 2001
By Ron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ms. Forrest has taken a wide range of insights on the Goddess and corrolated them in a comprehensive and readable almost encyclopedic tome. This is not to say it's dry academic text however... Within is full, easily understood ritual that can greatly enhance your relationship with Isis and wheather beginner or adept give you new scope in your magickal career. The best goddess book I'm aware of.
