Hawk,

 

I know of Christopher but haven't read any of his books. This is the only reference I can find to the Inner Temple of Witchcraft: http://www.traditionalwitch.net/forums/topic/1051-tw-authors-and-books/?p=11005. I do know AnjelWolf and if she found them useful, I'd say they're probably OK. But as she points out, you can generally find something useful in every book. You just have to cherry-pick.

I read a book of his years ago....  One of the first, and also one of the worst books I have read on magic - had tons of filler, and was kinda woo-woo to me personally.  I think he had enough material to write a book or two, but made ten books out of it to please his publisher - that's how the book felt to me.

I think you may find a few helpful things in it, but a lot of filler as well.  And just not really my brand of magic.  Lots of similar books with the same exact material and ideas out there too.  If it is one of your first magic books, it is probably fairly easy to understand - that might be its best quality is that it is very simple.

I didn't read any of his books but I took a look at his bibliography and he seems to have been churning them out pretty fast. From judging the book descriptions, they're definitely not something I would personally buy, but I would have to take an actual look in them to say something relevant about them.

Let me preface this with I have never read one of his books.  Mostly due to the fact I pulled one off the shelf, spot read parts of it then put it back on the shelf as I was not impressed with the content I had read.  Did that with two of his books I recall and truthfully have not bothered to check any more so the content may have gotten better but to me it was not worth the cost to purchase it and see.

Christopher Penczak is certainly an author that is available in many book stores . I purchased his first book, the Tempke of Witchcraft and also his Magical Reiki book. I am only speaking for these two books. I found the temple book accessible because of his clear writing. I liked his meditative exercises and these basic exercises helped me move to a more centred head space. As energy worker, again, I liked Penczak's straightforward writing in this subject and appreciated his combination of reiki and magic.

 

Sure, I don't agree with everything this author says but I do find pieces of useful information within his well designed books.
