It gives me great pleasure to announce that my ninth book, The View - One Man's Living Asatru With Help From The Havamal is now published and available on Amazon, Amazon Worldwide, and Kindle.
My latest book is about a subject dear to my heart: the personal application of Asatru in everyday life. To be properly understood, Asatru is more than religion; it is a way of life that can be prosperous and fulfilling for the true seeker. Often today, The Nine Noble Virtues come under attack, as something akin to the Ten Commandments. Nothing could be further from the truth. While it is true that people created them after poring through the Lore and found the same recurring themes, it pays to understand that the NNV were created to serve as a guideline of living in our complex and diverse modern world. The argument could be made that our Ancestors wrote very little, and therefore why the NNV today? Not to be smug, but we live in the 21st century. In our modern world when the bills come due and the boss is a hassle, it helps to have something on paper to help guide us to try and live a life of virtue in our complex world. Then there is the Havamal. A poem of 165 verses contained within the Poetic Edda, the Havamal offers us direction in our lives. Using translations from Bellows and Hollander, I made an attempt to make their verses more relevant in our 21st century.
