A Devotional Anthology for Hekate

I found this link - http://www.neosalexandria.org/bearingtorches.htm while looking at the Executive Pagan blog site.  It is a pitch for a new and sounds like a very interesting book that I thought I would pass on.  If someone goes out and gets it you might report back what you think of this book.

(Disclaimer)  NO, NO, NO, person has given me a copy of this book or any other consideration for making this presentation!

Hekate is, without question, one of the most popular goddesses in the world today, worshiped by Hellenic Recons, Wiccans, and Neo-pagans alike.

Hekate has many roles and many guises. To some she is a beautiful maiden, to others the dark mother. She has been called the guide of souls; the protector of the home; the giver of wealth; the mistress of powerful magic and frightful witches; the dweller on the threshold and the place where three roads meet.

These and other aspects of the goddess are explored in the pages of this unique book, which honors Hekate’s diversity by collecting a wide array of offerings from her modern-day devotees, including poetry, essays, short stories and accounts of personal experiences.

Whether you’ve worshiped Hekate for ages or are just now discovering the power of this awesome goddess, you will want to read Bearing Torches.

Bearing Torches is the fourth devotional anthology in Neos Alexandria's Bibliotheca Alexandrina series, a collection of books dedicated to the gods of Greece and Egypt. It can be purchased from our online store by visiting the following link: http://www.createspace.com/3412591"
