No Hell Below Us: Heretics and Heros
Imagine what happens to a famous and prosperous Christian minister when he decides that Hell as he always imagined it, preached about, and was taught to believe in, cannot exist. (1) I think you'll find his story of loosing friends and followers and finding a new path as moving as I did.
The Origin of Satan by Elaine Pagels.
(1) It's pretty much the same thing I see happening to anyone who won't teach that spells, books and candles are all it takes to make us powerful, rich or loved. I respect those who teach their students how to tap into their own power and will for change, who honor the connections we all share and who have a relationship with the divine based on love and not fear.
