The book is a course taught by its author(s) River and Joyce Higginbotham for more than two decades. The authors' claim is that, "Whether or not you decide to be a Pagan once you finish [the book] is not as important as providing you with tools to help you identify your values and goals." It is a different type of book on Paganism. You can use this book as a group or individually.

The book provides the general characteristics of Paganism: ethnics, beliefs, essentials, basic fundamentals, the sacred Pagan year, holidays, the concepts of interconnectedness & blessedness, Paganism god/goddess worship, rituals. Paganism: An Introduction to Earth Centered Religions goes to great spiritual depth, helps sort out the what(s) and why(s) of belief(s), and helps to define human nature. As well as this, it shows the “Big Tent” of Paganism (Celtic, Druid, Wicca, Christo-pagan, Santeria, etc.) as compared to the “Big Tent” of Christianity (Methodist, Baptist, Catholic, Jewish, etc.).

Periodically throughout each chapter, there are activities designed for group and/or self- reflection. Such as, meditations, questions of study to ask yourself or as a group, journal topics to write about, exercises to perform (physically, visually, or to ponder on), along with many other interesting activities. These can help you to discover why many of us take it seriously and if the Paganism religious path is right for you.
