In Essential Asatru, renowned author and priestess Diana Paxson demystifies an ancient, rich, and often misunderstood religion, and offers a practical guide for its modern followers.

Filled with clear, concise instructions on living Asatru every day, this truly accessible guide takes you on a journey from Asatru's origins in Scandinavian and German paganism to its acceptance as an official religion in the 1970s.

The book also includes:

-A complete history of Asatru gods and goddesses, including Odin, Thor, and Ostara
-The life values, such as honor, truth, fidelity, and hospitality, that shape Asatru's tenets
-Indispensable information on rituals, rune casting, ethics, and divination

This is an elegant and splendid introduction to a centuries-old religion that continues to enrich and fascinate its followers today.
