Theurgy is magical practice that seeks to create change in our lives via compact and communion with the Witch’s chosen Deities. Theurgy, as presented within this book, teaches the Witch new methods of invoking Deity and working transformative magic explicitly through them. You’ll learn about the ten levels of Godhead assumption, the importance of the Witch’s sacraments, explore the five mysteries of Light and Darkness, and how to incorporate and work with placeholders of the Deity in magical practice.
This highly engaging book is a part of Frater Barrabbas’ for Witches series and will certainly appeal to the advanced practitioners looking to intensify their magical practice. Be sure to check out Frater’s other books, including Spirit Conjuring for Witches (Llewellyn Worldwide), Elemental Powers for Witches (Llewellyn Worldwide), and Talismanic Magic for Witches (Llewellyn Worldwide).

Who I would recommend this title for
Sacramental Theurgy for Witches is a good read for active practitioners looking to go deeper into working with divine forces .
Learn theurgy. Study about the gods and how to get them to help in your practice. This is a very comprehensive book. It's very detailed and specific. I don't think it's best suited for the beginner. I think for a more advanced practitioner. I found it to be very enlightening and helpful in furthering my studies. I'm definitely adding this one to my personal library.
If one wants to learn more in theory and practice about the presence of deities in witchcraft rituals then this book is an essential text about that. One will recognize actually much deeper involvement of God and Goddess in such rituals that was in most cases somehow hidden and not very well understood. Yet I would love that text explains about possible "negative" characteristics of deities and how to deal with them, about so called "aspecting of Gods" though there is some information in For Witches series part one and in other texts about "god-assumption". An amazing book with top-notch illustrations which will give you a great boost.
Theurgy is a practice that has its roots in antiquity. There are Theurgic rituals for many pagan gods from the late Roman Empire and earlier. Frater Barrabbas has written a theurgic ritual manual for the pagan who wants to focus on Wiccan traditions and practice Theurgy today. This book is a how to manual for the many operations that bring Gods to life in present time to be experienced and encourage personal devotion/ I am not a theugist but this book is so very interesting and covers so much possibility that I think most any person interested in theurgy or its practice will want to give this a read and put into practice.
This scholarly and comprehensive book concerns sacramental theurgy in witchcraft. Sacramentation refers to making sacraments or alering the essence of deities. Discusses the cultic practice of the manifested deities and magical mysteries rites.. I found this book rather turgid and overly detailed and of interest to the advanced practitioners of witchcraft. Bibliography.
I have read several books by this author now and each one is more intriguing and educational than the next. Barrabbas’ latest entry is absolutely enthralling. Connecting with Deities and working with them in your practice. There is always so much to learn from Barrabbas and whether you want to incorporate your deities into your practice, or just want to read about how others do, you will find this book absolutely intriguing and educational.
