3.0 out of 5 stars Could do better
This book was previously published under the title 'An Egyptian Book of Shadows' - and its easy to see why they changed the title. The book presents only eight seasonal rites and a brief explaination of Egyptian paganism. Certainly not what you'd expect from a 'book of shadows'.
This edition is published with the tagline "simple rights and rituals for every day"...

3.0 out of 5 stars Could do better, 14 Oct 2003
This review is from: The Book of Egyptian Ritual: Simple Rites and Blessings for Every Day (Paperback)
This book was previously published under the title 'An Egyptian Book of Shadows' - and its easy to see why they changed the title. The book presents only eight seasonal rites and a brief explaination of Egyptian paganism. Certainly not what you'd expect from a 'book of shadows'.
This edition is published with the tagline "simple rights and rituals for every day". Well, it doesn't live up to that either because as I mentioned earlier it presents only eight seasonal rights. No daily prayers or devotions, no rituals for other purposes.
It also misses the mark slightly with the word simple. Although all the rituals are derived from ancient texts the authors have not explained the language or context of the rituals.
I have given this book three stars because it is one of the few books out there on Egyptian paganism and it has the balls to update it to modern day England. Ie. 8 seasonal rites for the pagan sabbats of the modern Western traditions rather than staying with out dated rites that have no bearing on the modern world (the Nile hasn't flooded since the building of the Aswan damn afterall). A good resource for the dedicated, but be prepared to put the work in to understand it.
