2.0 out of 5 stars Living Asatru, 7 Jun. 2005
This review is from: Living Asatru (Paperback)
I bought this book out of curiosity because I had never heard of the Author before. The information contained is very basic stuff, quite often flawed (Taticus did not say the German priests carved runes on staves) and sometimes contradictory. He stresses that Asatru is not an Earth based religion (well I think Im living on planet Earth even if he doesnt) and then goes on to tell us how Asatru honour wights of nature, elves of the forrest and dwarves of the deep earth. If your going to explain heathen beliefs to people, confusing them at the start is not the way to go.
On the plus side he has covered a little bit of everything. He explains the Folkish and Universal standpoints but does not cover Tribalist or Theodish ideas.
His explanation of Orlog and Wyrd is simple but well explained and so is his description of the gods.
The description of an Asatru weding ceremony at the back of the book could have been better replaced with a description of Symbel or Blot.
If you are new to Asatru/heathen beliefs and want to know more then I would suggest looking elsewhere to be honest.
