Seeking the Mystery, by Christine Hoff Kraemer

Reviewed by John Beckett

[Snip] What do Pagans believe? Many, many things. Dr. Christine Kraemer, Managing Editor of the Patheos Pagan Channel and an instructor at Cherry Hill Seminary has written a short survey of Pagan beliefs titled Seeking the Mystery: An Introduction to Pagan Theologies. As the title implies, it begins with the recognition that there is no one Pagan theology but many Pagan theologies.

The book is divided into five chapters. “Deity, Deities and the Divine” looks at Pagan views on God, Goddess and gods and goddesses – not just the hard vs. soft polytheism I frequently talk about, but also feminist theology, process theology, animism and other concepts that aren’t entirely Pagan but that have Pagan applications. Other chapters look at myths and history, knowledge and experience, life death and the body, and ethics and virtues. The book includes an extensive glossary of theological terms explained in simple language.
