WOULD YOU LIKE A COMPLETE GUIDE FOR Demonology?
Whether you believe that demons in the service of Satan are actively plotting to subvert God’s kingdom or you see such evil entities as metaphors for the struggle that is the human condition, this book will speak to you. Although cast in the language of Western Christian thought, the text looks to universal themes of good and evil and how they may be magnified or distorted in the filter of religion. The author does not, however, take issue with the fact that evil does exist in the world. Little more is needed than a visit to your favorite news site or a perusal of the front page of a newspaper to know that horrific and inexplicable things happen every day.
An excellent introduction to demonology that acknowledges and respects the religious perspective without being religious per se, this is a fresh take on a centuries old debate. Demonology from a theological perspective, demonic possession, information on many of the demons recognized in Christianity, and much more all covered!

MEET Riley Star
Her “day job” working in a metaphysical bookstore gives her access to plentiful reading and research material, but she also meets a lot of questioning people daily. “Learning where people are on their own path is so fulfilling for me,” she says. “The questions people bring to their personal quest fascinate and motivate me. There are so many ways of being in the world, and I want to understand them all.”
Deeply influenced by the work of comparative mythologist Joseph Campbell, Starr still lists The Power of Myth as her favorite book. “We all have forces at work in our daily lives we try to understand,” she says, “and we all tell ourselves stories to get through the day.”
After caring for an elderly aunt who was a dementia patient, Starr was shocked when someone suggested the experience might have left her open to demonic possession. “That really sent me digging into demonology to try to understand where that explanation would come from!” she said. “That’s when I discovered a powerful trove of demon lore and of course, I had to write about it.” Read More
Now Star sees writing as part of her personal path, likening the gathering of information and the sharing of the material to a kind of active meditation. “If we get back what we put out into the universe,” Star says, “I want to make sure I’m sending the clearest signal possible.”
She keeps herself open to all ideas and all philosophies. “There’s just no one way to express or experience this miracle of existence,” she says. “I really don’t know who or what is running the show, so I try to be nice to priests and oak trees. That’s not a joke. All life and all belief is sacred.”
Above all, she holds to the key moral tenet of her Wiccan faith, The Wiccan Rede, “An Ye harm none, do what ye will.” Show Less
