Guardian of the Road: A Devotional Anthology in Honor of Hermes Reviews

    So I'll be up front: I contributed to this book and I'm also on the Board of Directors for BA. This may upset some but I want to be honest, I do not feel this is one of BA's better books. It is one of the few devotionals I've read that do not give me an overwhelming sense of the god which is the main reason I read it. I wanted to know how others see this divinity. There are several good works in here however, such as Jennifer Lawrence's 'Hermes in America' and I like the ideas presented in Rebecca Buchanan's 'Travels with Hermes: How to Build a Portable Shrine for the God of Roads'. That said, devotionals are very personal things, so as the old adage goes "your mileage may vary".

    I have mixed feelings about this book. It was interesting and I found some authors to look into but... I don't know. It didn't feel cohesive to me? And the formatting bothered me, but maybe that's because it wasn't available on Kobo and I had to buy it from Kindle instead, and I prefer Kobo, or maybe it was just a weird formatting thing. It just... Didn't meet the standards I was expecting, based on reviews and the companies stated desires for these devotionals. It was useful for learning more about the modern pagan views on Hermes though, which I suppose made it worth the read.

    I liked a few of the of the hymns and prayers a lot and the highlight for me were the writings of P. Sufenas Virius Lupus, but I have to agree with previous reviewers that this devotional lacked much of the passion that made the previous devotional that I've read in this series, dedicated to The Morrigan. I hope to find more texts devoted to Hermes in the future and this was still a good book, but it didn't have the feel that I was expecting, if that makes any sense.
