For the study of NRM's, New Religious Movements. Read to learn about A.D.F. a religious organiztion in the United States.

** As a bonus chapter 10 contains a section tightled "Elementary Precautions: the ABCDEF" also known as the cult evaluation frame, This is especially useful when studying about a new religious movement or NRM. It has been used in the past by the FBI for example. ( )

Skimmed through it. Seemed to cover the essentials. Some bias toward Neo-pagan druid groups such as authors own ADF

When I first met Isaac, I thought he was an odd little man who had to be a bit daft, and was a bit wary about reading one of his books. I was mistaken. Very well researched, thought out and presented, Bonewits' "Essential Guide to Druidism" is a must for any Pagan library, PERIOD. While it is a bit of a dry read in places, it is an excellent example of writing that walks it's talk. There are more books out there on Celtic Pagan/NeoPagan traditions than you can throw a dart and hit, but few.. very few.. would hit the mark. This book is an absolute foundation piece to any Celtic path. Well done! ( )
