Praise:
"A masterwork by one of the great Elders of the Craft. Raymond Buckland has presented a treasure trove of Wiccan lore. It is a legacy that will provide magic, beauty, and wisdom to future generations of those who seek the ancient paths of the Old Religion."―Ed Fitch, author of Magical Rites from the Crystal Well

"I read Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft with much pleasure. This book contains enough information and know-how for all approaches: the historical, the philosophical, and the pragmatic . . . quite entertaining, as much for the armchair enthusiast as for the practicing occultist."―Marion Zimmer Bradley, author of The Mists of Avalon

"Never in the history of the Craft has a single book educated as many people, spurred as many spiritual paths, or conjured as much personal possibility as Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft."―Dorothy Morrison, author of The Craft

Review:

This 1986 classic is not only an excellent introduction to the Wiccan religion and earth-based religions in general, it's also a workbook that can take the serious student to the equivalent level of third-degree Gardnerian. Though Raymond Buckland was a student of the late great Gerald Gardner, this manual does not adhere to a specific branch or denomination of witchcraft, but rather seeks to teach the elements and philosophies common to all, whether Celtic, Saxon, Finnish, or what have you. Buckland is credited with bringing the "old religion" to the U.S., and covens and solitary witches practicing the craft in the U.S. today have him to thank for getting it out of the closet. While Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft is a must-have for any serious Wiccan practitioner, it is full of down-to-earth spiritual wisdom, which makes it a wonderful addition to the library of any broadminded seeker on the path toward the One. --P. Randall Cohan

From the Publisher:

In the New Age book field, it is impossible to guess which book is going to be popular and which one is not. But when I looked at the manuscript to Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft I knew it was going to be something special! Few books have been as needed,  and as anticipated as this one-it's the first totally comprehensive, eclectic, and sensible guide to the art and the practice of modern Wicca!
I say "Wicca" rather than "Witchcraft" because it includes not only the Craft of the Wise but gives you a firm foundation for understanding the spiritual dimension that is the essence of this born again Old Religion for the Modern World.
There are so many Wiccan traditions today that it really doesn't matter what we call it any more. What matters is that it is a real, growing, living religion filled with love of the gods, magick, divination, healing and much more. And Ray's book has become the premier guide for all of those who wish to follow this spiritual path!
Beside the breadth of information covered in this book, the real key to it is the design. It is a workbook. You can use it by yourself or you can use it as a text for a coven. In fact, we have heard from many covens that use this as the source of their secret Books of Shadows.
Wicca, by nature, is a simple faith that has great depth. You can pick up this book and use it as a source for the external aspects of Wicca, or you can study it and plumb the magical depths of this spiritual path.
This book has become a key resource in the rebirth of the Craft. It is a must for your personal research and practice or for your coven's library.
