More about Neopaganism

Apologetics Index also has a feature-length article titled, “Neo-Paganism: Is Dialogue Possible?

The author of that article, Andrew J. MacLean, introduces it as follows:

It is easy to parody another religion, and neopaganism is a parodist’s delight. One can easily brand its ritual as primitive or just plain weird.

Yet serious apologetics requires that one exercise a hermeneutic of respect in the attempt to understand another faith.

St Paul obviously spent time with the Athenians, reading their poets and watching people at worship before daring to address them. Only in this way can Christians begin to dialogue with pagans.

We need to put aside fifteen hundred years of offhanded dismissal and listen to pagans as having something intellectually serious and spiritually viable to say. This does not mean agreeing with them but having enough respect to listen and learn.
