I would not recommend this book if you are looking for a solid argument against paganism and or the practices of witchcraft. Most of Russo's argument comes from quotations from the Bible. The book is aimed for teenagers but does little to prove anything.

What an oppontunity lost for Mr Russo to show what a loving religion Chistianity can be.Instead he has given examples of God's Miracles as The Plagues of Egypt [not to some they weren't] and a family whose teenage daughter wears a pentacle, dealing with the problem by threatening and actually carrying out her expulsion from the family home, loss of family, loss of car etc.
If he had tried to make Christianity sound like a vicious cult then he succeeded.
On the other hand the tenets of Wicca are described as "live and let live" and "do no harm". Not very hard to understand those rules.
Page 20 should give anyone a sense of where this is all going "anyone who doesnot believe in Jesus and The Word is a Satanist", there you go, anyone sitting on the fence just fell off. Logic isn't his forte.
His ignorance even extends to not understanding how herbs can benefit anyone.Anyone still reading?
I trudged on through this book in despair and still don't know whether it is pro Christian as nothing quoted as Wiccan was off - putting and Christianity is made to sound vindictive.
In the USA i believe that Wicca is accepted as a mainstream religilion, but obviously it is seen as an easy target, and I doubt if this author would write a similar book about any of the other mainstream religions, eg.Hindu, Judaism, Islam without a backlash that might include violence, but would at least get major publicity.Nothing in this book would bring a person to Jesus using their own free will, and in contrast you have made Wicca sound like an inviting option.

Wicca is not dark, it is nature based. this book doesn't give any actual facts, it is from a biased christian point of view only, and anything that isn't christian is supposedly dark in the christian mind. Don't waste your time reading this please
