Review Asatru is a Native European spirituality and as such has far more in
common with Native American religions or the Shintoism of the Japanese people
than it does universalist religions such as Christianity. Navajo spirituality
is primarily for Navajos . . . the spirituality and the ethnicity of the
people who practice it are indivisible parts of a whole.The same holds true
for Asatru. As such, it is at least as much about who we are as what we
believe. This book is the literary distillation of more than four decades of
experience and will be highly informative and inspirational to both newcomers
and those who have been involved in Asatru for many years.There could be no
better single book for the beginner on this path as all the aspects of Asatru
are explained with great clarity. –Richard Rudgley, author of Pagan
Resurrection: A Force for Evil or the Future of Western Spirituality?Years in
the making, this book represents the distillation of a lifetime of work by the
most significant single figure in the history of the revival of the Norse Gods
and Goddesses in modern America. Any and all who are interested in the tribal
religion of our ancestors need to have this book in their libraries. –Edred
Thorsson, author of ALU: An Advanced Guide to Operative RunologyStephen
McNallen is known to all followers of the Northern Tradition as a stalwart
upholder of Asatru of many years standing. This book is his compelling vision
of the ancient northern spiritual tradition, a fine introduction to Asatru for
all followers of the old Gods and seekers after spiritual enlightenment.
