Review of Heathen Gods: A Collection of Essays Concerning the Folkway of Our People by Mark Ludwig Stinson:
Heathen Gods: A Collection of Essays Concerning the Folkway of Our People by Mark Ludwig Stinson is a collection of essays by the author about Heathenry. Heathenry, also known as Asatru, is a Pagan religion based off of the beliefs of those who lived in Northeastern Europe before Christianity. This includes countries such as Germany, Iceland, and Norway. The most common association with this religion is the Vikings. The author groups his essays into several categories. The largest theme throughout the book is Kindreds. Kindreds are groups of Heathens that get together to study and honor the Gods. The author goes over things such as creating your own Kindred and briefly talks about how he became a Heathen. I found this book to be extremely interesting and informative. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Heathenry, or anyone who is Heathen that wants to create their own Kindred.
