"This book explores the cosmology, values, ethics, and rituals practices by modern Heathens and is an accessible and yet in-depth guide to this increasingly popular pre-Christian religious tradition of Northern Europe. In A Modern Guide To Heathenry, readers will have the opportunity to explore the sacred stories of the various Heathen gods like Odin, Frigga, Freya, and Thor and will be granted a look into the devotional practices of modern votaries. Blots, the most common devotional rites, are examined in rich detail with examples given for personal use. Additionally, readers are introduced to the concept of wyrd, or fate, so integral to the Heathen worldview.
A Modern Guide to Heathenry is not denomination-specific and serves as the perfect introduction for Pagans who wish to learn more about the Norse deities; those who are new to Heathenry; or those who are simply interested in learning about this unique religion..."
