Monsters: An Investigator's Guide to Magical Beings
John Michael Greer
Llewellyn Publications

A Byzantine Catholic author reviews a guide to magical creatures written by a learned and practicing Druid. The author undertook the monograph purely for reasons of academic inquiry and theological dialogue, and only after consulting his confessor. He strongly advises that Christian readers approach this text and others like it with similar caution and advises against practical magic as incompatible with Christian cultic and ritual restrictions.
