Christianity, paganism and witchcraft

I've been asked to read a paper on the Christian understandings of paganism and witchcraft at the conference of the Association for the Study of Religion in Southern Africa (ASRSA) in May.

The following book, announced by John Morehead, will be released too late to consult for my paper, but I'd welcome recommendations of other recent books that might throw more light on the subject. Meanwhile, I might mention the forthcoming book as a p[ossibly useful one on the topic.

Morehead's Musings:
I am pleased to be able to begin promotion for the forthcoming book, Beyond the Burning Times: A Pagan and Christian in Dialogue, by Philip Johnson and Gus diZerega. This volume was approximately three years in the making from conception to finished product, and it is now in the final stages as Lion Publishing prepares for its marketing and publishing. I was privileged to serve as editor and project coordinator for this book, which represents a major step forward in dialogue and understanding between Paganism and Christianity

my copy is currently on order, but as for something relevant I am afraid it is sadly lacking...unless you glean some bits from Clifford and Johnsons Jesus and the Gods of the New Age.

Philip Johnson's blog (probably same one) is good. He has a list of his books, and links to papers he has helped write for the ongoing Lausanne Committee consultations.

Blog now requires a sign-in, but it's worth it. His posts are always thoughtful.

Phil Johnson's blog is one of the ones I've just removed from my blogroll (see post above) since it is now for invited readers only, and he hasn't invited me.
