The Shaken Path

Shaken pathThe Shaken Path isn’t a Moon Books title, but comes from another JHP imprint – Christian Alternative. However, you’ll find a fair few familiar names in the mix, as a number of Moon Books authors talked to Paul Cudby as he did the research for this fascinating book.

The Shaken Path is a Christian Priest’s Exploration of Modern Pagan Belief and Practice. It’s written for Christians, by a Christian and takes a deep and thoughtful look at modern Pagan practice.

Despite modern Paganism being one of the fastest growing new religious movements in Britain and the USA, there is no up-to-date straightforward and informed introduction to modern Paganism from a Christian perspective. The Shaken Path addresses that gap.

For a Pagan reader, it’s an interesting look at us from the outside. However, it has the potential to be much more useful than that. This is the book to buy for uncomfortable relatives, for teachers who don’t know what to do with your child, it’s the book to suggest for your local library, and for any interfaith group you come into contact with that doesn’t know how to make sense of you. Paul Cudby’s down to earth, Pagan friendly approach should dispel unhelpful myths and reassure those who have got the wrong idea about what Pagans do. It’s also an exciting challenge to Christianity to be more accommodating of and respectful towards other faiths, and that’s a very positive move.
