Enlightening, that's the best word to describe my experience with this book. There is so much material and so many topics that I found out about and then got an in-depth look at that I wouldn't know where to start in reviewing it all. The content is very scholarly, yet entirely easy to read and understand. I feel as though my eyes have been open to the grip that not only our society but all societies have been gripped and formed by occult practices. The rise of New Age philosophy in America was not previously something that gave a lot of consideration, but now I realize that it has birthed so much wickedness in our culture and has led to all sorts of wrong paths. As you go through the chapter headings on everything from Kabballah to UFO's you can expect to get an in-depth analysis of each of those topics. And each chapter has the same outline including a thorough analysis of the occult philosophy, a case study, a scripture response and a conclusion. Personally, I found the case studies to be most interesting as they really gave an inside look into the topic at hand and you realize just how gripped the people are by the false teaching. Having the book end with a section on Evangelism really brought the crux of the matter to the forefront and was honestly something that I needed to hear and need to praying about more. I'm very grateful for the authors of this book and would highly recommend it to anyone, especially Christians, especially Christian leaders.
