  • Road To Jonestown

    $18.00

    By the New York Times bestselling author of Manson, the comprehensive, authoritative, and tragic story of preacher Jim Jones, who was responsible for the Jonestown Massacre-the largest murder-suicide in American history.

    In the 1950s, a young Indianapolis minister named Jim Jones preached a curious blend of the gospel and Marxism. His congregation was racially integrated, and he was a much-lauded leader in the contemporary civil rights movement. Eventually, Jones moved his church, Peoples Temple, to northern California. He became involved in electoral politics, and soon was a prominent Bay Area leader.

    In this riveting narrative, Jeff Guinn examines Jones’s life, from his extramarital affairs, drug use, and fraudulent faith healing to the fraught decision to move almost a thousand of his followers to a settlement in the jungles of Guyana in South America. Guinn provides stunning new details of the events leading to the fatal day in November, 1978 when more than nine hundred people died-including almost three hundred infants and children-after being ordered to swallow a cyanide-laced drink.

    Guinn examined thousands of pages of FBI files on the case, including material released during the course of his research. He traveled to Jones’s Indiana hometown, where he spoke to people never previously interviewed, and uncovered fresh information from Jonestown survivors. He even visited the Jonestown site with the same pilot who flew there the day that Congressman Leo Ryan was murdered on Jones’s orders. The Road to Jonestown is the definitive book about Jim Jones and the events that led to the tragedy at Jonestown.

  • Freemasonry Invisible Cult

    $15.99

    Jack Harris, a former “Worshipful Master” of a Masonic lodge, authoritatively speaks about one of the most deceptive cults in the United States today. Freemasonry is a false religion, teaching that men can approach God not through the finished work of Jesus Christ but through their own abilities. This secret organization has entangled ministers, elders, deacons, trustees, Sunday school teachers, and people all over the world in a web of lies and satanic rituals–all of which are veiled with the language of the Bible! Discover how you can share the light of Christ with those living in the darkness of Freemasonry and how they can be set free from its deception.

    But after reading and studying various Masonic authors, he realized that Freemasonry considers Jesus Christ to be no greater than Moses, Elijah, Mohammed, or Buddha. Needless to say, his faith and trust in the teachings of Masonry were shaken.

    He began to converse with pastors, read the Bible, pray, and debate with other Masons about who Jesus Christ is and where absolute truth is to be found. This went on for two years, until one night he decided to watch a Billy Graham crusade on TV.

    As he listened to Reverend Graham preach, he finally saw himself as God saw him, a sinner without hope and on his way to hell. That night he got on his knees and asked Jesus Christ to forgive him for his sins, come into his life, save him, and be the Lord of his life. At that moment, he accepted the God of the Universe, Jesus Christ, and rejected the god of Freemasonry. He was set free by the One who is the Truth, Jesus Christ. The shackles of Masonic lies were broken.

  • Walking With The Enemy

    $16.95

    Walking With the Enemy by C. Read is about the author’s involvement with a Bible study group that turned out to be a cult remarkably similar to the Branch Davidians of Waco, Texas, led by David Koresh. As of 28 February 1993, Read had been with them for some three years, and had grown to love and trust the leaders completely; but after she found out the truth about them she could no longer remain. That did not stop them from wanting her back under their control and influence; and her testimony will show how they tried so hard to convince her that they were right, and she was wrong. This is a war between God and the devil! And innocent, unsuspecting souls continue to be taken in by false teachers and deceitful men. The target of such groups are men, women, and children; especially those searching for love, acceptance, and a deeper meaning to this life. Cults are on the rise, and no one is exempt from their evil influences! Koresh was violently removed from this earth over twenty years ago, but his “spirit” still lives on in the hearts of some very deceived and wicked men. If you need relief from the pains and burdens of this world: this book is for you! If you want to know the truth and truly be able to walk in it: this book is for you! If you are tired of religion and want to know the only true God: this book is for you! Quotes from those sent Walking With the Enemy: A Testimony “Read offers her personal tale of religious awakening, including her experiences with people whom she says were falsely serving Jesus Christ. . . . She compares her own struggle with that of the infamous Branch Davidians, led by the charismatic David Koresh, and she makes clear that Koresh was “of the same ‘antichrist spirit’ as the man sent to try to destroy me, and my family!” Although Read’s account doesn’t end in fiery government intervention, it does contain stories of demonic attacks, the author’s ruminations on the nature of evil, and the recurring question of whom one can trust when committing to follow Jesus Christ.

  • Freed Indeed : My Journey From Occultism To Christ A Spiritual Oddysey

    $13.99

    As a young man, Dr. Ron Tyler was a sincere seeker after spiritual truth. But wounding from his past pushed him to the brink of spiritual despair and disillusionment with what he thought was Christianity. This is his dramatic true story, showing how Satan lured him through supernatural experiences, ensnaring him in demonic deception and occult bondage in a New Age cult called the Gurdjieff Foundation. But, more importantly, it is the inspiring story of how God miraculously delivered him from satanic oppression and negative behavior patterns that threatened his marriage, career, and eternal destiny.

  • Ahrimani Enlightenment

    $9.00

    “Both good and evil are equal forces in a constant war that maintains equilibrium. We have been under the law of ‘Light, ‘ and it has shown itself to be abusive, enslaving, and stifling to the betterment of mankind.” Thus opens the Ahrimani Enlightenment by Dastur Adam Daniels, a tome that serves as a guide for those who choose to worship Ahriman, providing key articles of faith, prayers, and rituals. Ahriman is of course the nemesis of Ahura Mazda in Zoroastrianism, and here he is interpreted as the true essence of the universe, assisted by Melek Taus, the illuminating light, guardian, and ruler of Earth in this system. For the uninitiated, the church of Ahriman seeks to break away from the conventional association with traditional Satanists, “due to the understanding that Satan is a fallen angel subservient to the slave master Jehovah. Traditional Satanists believe that in the end, Satan and Jehovah will war,” and Satan will emerge the victor. However, Ahriman is an equally unstoppable force. The Dark Ages, dominated by the Catholic Church, based their spiritual enemy, Satan, on Ahriman. About the author Adam Daniels holds a sixth degree black belt in aikido and a black belt in judo. After killing an assailant in self-defense, Dastur discovered he could find little solace in the religions and spiritual systems he could find. A critical statement in a Satanic Bible, however, enabled him to turn his life around, and he has never since looked back, even finally finding a way to fuse Satanism with Eastern spirituality.

  • Soul Journey : How Shamanism Santeria Wicca And Charisma Are Connected

    $15.95

    Pastor Kent Philpott explored Santeria, the New World version of the West African religion of the “orishas,” a stealth religious movement with more than 180 million adherents in Brazil alone, and discovered that it had its roots in shamanism and that contemporary neo-pagan religions like Wicca were intimately connected with both. Even more surprising, Philpott found shamans, Santerian priests, and witches appealing to what they termed “charisma” to support and authenticate their belief systems. What the four have in common is the trance state, ecstasy, passive state of mind, or altered state of conscious. Philpott details the theology and practices of shamanism, Santeria, and Wicca, and then regretfully demonstrates why the proponents of these religions appeal to a form of Christianity.

  • Dancing With The Devil

    $14.99

    Until the church recognizes the real face of the occult, it cannot serve as a source of hope and love.

    Its tentacles have infiltrated the very fiber of our day-to-day existence. Its symbols adorn our buildings, our currency, and the clothes and jewelry we lay upon our bodies. Its followers are legion, some of them blind to their own devotion while others pour out effort and intellect toward a broader understanding of the divine.

    It is the occult, and it dominates the world’s faith mind-set. Jeff Harshbarger and his friends know about occult practices. Jeff left his life of Satanism after two unsuccessful suicide attempts and an offer to become his group’s first human sacrifice.

    Dancing with the Devil tells the true stories of Jeff and others who have walked various paths of the occult. Each author’s account of his or her experience with the occult is introduced by Jeff as he ties their stories together, weaving a tapestry that, by the book’s close, shows the fabric of an occultist’s real identity. Armed with stable faith and the sure love of Christ, they are stepping out to share a true look into the heart, mind, and soul of the occult and its followers.

  • Way Of Escape

    $14.99

    The Urantia movement-a little-known but fast-growing cult-is an ideology that had claimed this author’s soul for twelve years until she miraculously got set free from it by the power of God. “The Urantia Book,” the cornerstone of this movement, has a subtle, Hitler-like spirit woven throughout its fabric, and claims to be the model for the so-called “New Age.” The second major episode in the author’s life is equally miraculous in that she was able to get off an extremely high amount of anti-depressant drugs she had become dependent on because of the deep depression this book caused her to sink into. The author tells the reader in Way of Escape how she fell into this trap of the Urantia book, how she got out, and how she got free from the doctor-prescribed medicine that would have eventually claimed her life. “This is a book that is hard to put down. You just want to keep reading to see what happens next. Simply written in everyday dialog, it’s like the author is sitting in your living room sharing the journey of her life. Hers is a story of hope. It’s amusing and refreshing, it’s sad, it’s serious-it’s real life. Maintaining a sense of humor and a quest for God through so much drama, turmoil, and personal challenge is a miracle in and of itself. It is a story of ongoing deliverance.” L.V., Texas. “This book is quite an adventure into the discerning of God’s will. Read it with an open heart, and the truth will set you free.” N.B., New Hampshire. “This story reveals the depth of God’s love for His children and shows His mighty hand of deliverance in setting the captives free.” T.M.P., Texas.

  • Dead Birds Dont Sing But Witching Rods Talk

    $21.95

    This book features humorous and serious stories, as well as wild and hard-to-believe stories. From fishing and logging tales, to Sasquatch encounters-all of the stories are true.

    Some old Native (Indian) stories might have been passed over as legends from the past, when perhaps there is more to the stories than meets the eye. Some are spiritual stories that introduce topics from a new perspective, and with a different twist.

    Spirit boats, wolves, and killer whales wait within these pages. A mysterious, maniacal, bone-chilling scream breaks the silence of a remote inlet. The book’s title is accurate. One little bird never sings again, but readers may be shocked to find that witching rods really do talk!

  • Grace In The Dark Places

    $19.99

    Why are people drawn to alternative religions that deviate from the norm of Christian beliefs? Why do they stay? What compels them to cling to a false dogma, even in the face of evidence that their beliefs are in error? Why do they engage in scriptural gymnastics in defense of beliefs that have no grounding in Christian theology? Why do they tolerate abusiveness from charismatic leaders and cede personal freedom? Why are they willing to defend these leaders and their institutions to the bitter end? After a lifetime of spiritual incarceration, Jim Turner began studying the cult mentality in order to better understand his actions. He researched religious cults and their practices and traced their teachings throughout history as they found their way into the “New Religions.” His studies have convinced him that there is indeed “nothing new under the sun.” New Religions offer amended ideas that identified past cults. Modern cults have extracted beliefs from past groups and added a spin that presents them as original and, of course, inspired. Psychological manipulation plays a significant role in the development and continuation of modern cults, but Jim Turner has presented a convincing argument that the psychological condition and willingness of cultists to surrender their freedom to cult leaders and their irrational tendencies to elevate a revered leader to a semi-divine level are equally responsible for the advancement of cults. Follow the author through the early stages of cult indoctrination, the personal abuses he experienced at the hands of the cult, his personal choices as he rose through the ranks of the cult and his eventual enlightenment to the deceptiveness of the cult led by Herbert W. Armstrong. Walk with him out of the darkness of cultic deception into the glorious light of the Grace of God through Jesus Christ.

The book offers a mixture of classic readings and more recent contributions, and the “world religions” are included along with examples from the religions of traditionally non-literate cultures. As diverse a range of religious traditions as possible has been embraced, from various ethnic groups, traditions, and places.

  • Wolves Among Sheep 3rd Edition

    $24.99

    There are tragedies in life. The young child killed by a drunk driver. The family devastated by an early morning house fire. These events sadden us and make us reflect. “There but for the grace of God…” But if tragedy has a degree, there is surely none more unspeakable that the cold-blooded, brutal, shotgun murder of two beautiful children. Such was the case when Kim Anderson’s estranged husband, Jeff Anderson, killed her and her two children-Juri, aged 10, and Lindsay, aged 8. Juri died with his arms wrapped around his sister, in a futile effort to protect her.

    Wolves Among Sheep is unlike any book you have read-or are likely to read again. It is written by the person most affected by the deaths of these two innocent children and their mother-their father and Kim’s first husband, James Kostelniuk. Compelled to write the book as an expression of sorrow and love for the family so cruelly taken from him, Kostelniuk also had a deep need to arrive at some understanding of why these senseless murders took place. This question led him to expose the influence of the Jehovah’s Witness organization that wielded total control over Kim’s life, as it had over himself until he found the resolve to break with the organization. In making that break, Kostelniuk knew he would be forever shunned by the Witness community and, according to its laws, forbidden contact with his own wife and children. The convicted killer, Jeff Anderson, was also a member of the Jehovah’s Witnesses.

    In a bizarre turn of events, Anderson began to correspond with Kostelniuk from prison, and his correspondence provides a chilling look into the mind of a murderer who held back a terrible secret from the world. After serving fifteen years, the Canadian criminal justice system offered Jeff Anderson the opportunity of a faint-hope hearing for early parole from his 25-year sentence. In February 2009, Anderson’s file was opened up for public scrutiny at his first National Parole Board hearing at William Head Institution near Victoria, British Columbia. That parole hearing confirmed Kostelniuk’s suspicions and revealed even more about this offender than anyone outside the system had known up until that time. Wolves Among Sheep is a riveting read that explores the darkest parts of the human heart and mind, and surprises us with the depth of its love and compassion.

  • Satan In America

    $26.95

    Satan in America tells the story of America’s complicated relationship with the devil. “New light” evangelists of the eighteenth century, enslaved African Americans, demagogic politicians, and modern American film-makers have used the devil to damn their enemies, explain the nature of evil and injustice, mount social crusades, construct a national identity, and express anxiety about matters as diverse as the threat of war to the dangers of deviant sexuality. W. Scott Poole’s book shows that both the range and the scope of American religiousness made theological evil an especially potent symbol. Satan appears repeatedly on the political, religious, and cultural landscape of the United States, a shadow self to the sunny image of American progress and idealism.

  • Removing The Veil Of Deception

    $18.00

    In a straightforward, informative way she explains:

    the importance of accountability and healthy submission to a Christian leader

    how to break free from deception
    and much more.

    Wentroble’s vital insights will equip believers to become mature in Christ, ready to fulfill God’s purposes for their lives

    Shamans of the Lost World bridges the gap between recent work in the cognitive sciences and some of humankind’s oldest religious expressions. In this detailed look at the prehistoric shamanism of the Ohio Hopewell, Romain uses cognitive science, archaeology, and ethnology to propose that the shamanic worldview results from psychological mechanisms that have a basis in our cognitive evolutionary development. The discussions in this volume of the most current theories concerning how early peoples came to believe in spirits and gods, as well as how those theories help account for what we find in the archaeological record of the Hopewell, are of interest to archaeologists and cognitive scientists alike.

    Part textbook, part life-story, part theological expose, Understanding Haitian Voodoo comes from a much-respected Haitian gentleman who writes as a lawyer, judge, and evangelist who cares deeply about his people and their bondage in Voodoo. “Voodoo is not simply a myth, toward which we can remain indifferent.

They are real beings, intelligent beings, they lust after worship and are full of cruelty.” With testimonies from Voodoo priests, followers, witch doctors and more, Understanding Haitian Voodoo is a deep observation of Haitian Voodoo through the eyes of Christian faith, molded in Haitian theology that is biblical, contemporary, relevant and transformational. From his identity as a Christian believer and as a Haitian, proud of his culture, traditions, language and customs, author Emmanuel Felix brings a remarkable contribution to a better understanding of the relationship of Voodoo to Haitian culture, to Christianity, to zombies, community life, religions and beliefs, identity and more. The final conclusion of this majestic work confirms all that man seeks is found in the Almighty God Jehovah, through Jesus Christ, and in Him alone, no matter a man’s race, culture and beliefs. Whether you’re planning to visit Haiti, seeking to pray more intelligently for the work of the Gospel or are simply looking to learn more about the Haitian people, this book is a must-read.

    Additional Info
    Re-riting Woman presents the first in-depth ethnographic study of Dianic Wicca. Its subject, Circle of Aradia, is a branch of the religion based in the Los Angeles area. This religion-of, by, and for women-conceives the Divine as exclusively female, and has infused feminism into Wicca worldwide. Kristy S. Coleman combines ethnography with theory to present a full account of what Dianic Witches’ lived practice looks like and what it means. The theorist of focus, Luce Irigaray, asserts that women must reclaim their own space and imagine the Divine as female to achieve full emancipation. Moreover, Irigaray’s critical analysis of Western culture creates a subtext that clarifies what is at stake in this practice.

    Thick description of seasonal rituals dispels fears and stereotypes about Wicca, and offers readers a comforting familiarity and shared healing. Coleman employs ritual theory to suggest why and how these rites wield such meaning-altering possibilities. Practitioners’ statements that describe a shift in worldview and self-conception elicit Coleman’s proposal that Dianic rituals re(w)rite the valuation and meaning of woman. Dianic women’s stories reveal both the transformative power of the tradition’s practice and the organization’s challenges related to power politics.

  • I Love Mormons

    $16.00

    David L. Rowe asserts that many Mormons view Christian witnessing as Bible bashing. What Christians need to understand, he suggests, is that Latter-day Saints are an entirely separate ethnic group with their own history, values, and customs. Evangelizing Mormons can be so much more effective if Christians first know, understand, and respect Mormon heritage.

    With helpful illustrations and discussions of Mormon values and theology, Rowe calls Christians away from confrontational evangelism and instead suggests active listening and respect as a way to bridge Christian beliefs and Mormon culture. A glossary in the back of the book and discussion questions at the end of each chapter will help readers apply these concepts in their own witnessing experiences. In the end, Christians will be more approachable representatives of Christ.

    What The Cults Believe

    You see them at airports and at shopping centers. They knock on your doors or enter your house via radio. They are called Moonies, Mormons, Scientists, and Mediators.

    Who are these people who claim to be people of God? Exactly what do they believe? How can you tell if they are members of cults?

    And what about the New Age? Although it is not a cult, why do so many thousands of people cling to a movement with no organization, no founder, no absolutes, no statement of beliefs, no good or evil, no God, and no “reality?” Where did the New Age originate?

    Irvine Robertson has done extensive research into the New Age as well as into cults such as Hare Krishna, the Unification Church of Sun Myung Moon, TM, and more. He explains simply and clearly what each group believes and where each deviates from biblical teaching.

    Don’t be fooled. Know the signs of the cults, and be prepared to offer a positive yet loving offensive to meet their false doctrines. What the Cults Believe will prepare you to answer cultist claims with the truth of the Word of God.

  • Templar Revelation : Secret Guardians Of The True Identity Of Christ

    $25.99

    THE MOST CLOSELY GUARDED SECRET OF THE WESTERN WORLD IS ABOUT TO BE REVEALED — AND YOU WILL NEVER SEE CHRISTIANITY IN THE SAME LIGHT AGAIN.

    In a remarkable achievement of historical detective work that is destined to become a classic, authors Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince delve into the mysterious world of the Freemasons, the Cathars, the Knights Templar, and the occult to discover the truth behind an underground religion with roots in the first century that survives even today. Chronicling their fascinating quest for truth through time and space, the authors reveal an astonishing new view of the real motives and character of the founder of Christianity, as well as the actual historical — and revelatory — roles of John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene. Painstakingly researched and thoroughly documented, The Templar Revelation presents a secret history, preserved through the centuries but encoded in works of art and even in the great Gothic cathedrals of Europe, whose final chapter could shatter the foundation of the Christian Church.

  • Hinduism TM And Hare Krishna

    $9.99

    In the sixties, Transcendental Meditation, a Hindu-based movement, became fashionable as a way to therapy and psychological well-being — especially after being endorsed by the Beatles and the Beach Boys. Its influence waned, ironically, after the courts decided that TM was a religion rather than a form of therapy, as TM had claimed. But its popularity helped open the doors to a wider acceptance of Eastern philosophy and religions in mainstream America. Another Americanized form of Hinduism is Hare Krishna. This volume and the volume on Buddhism in this series together present a comprehensive overview of Eastern religions, their views, and their impact on contemporary North America. Why this series? This is an age when countless groups and movements, old and new, mark the religious landscape in our culture, leaving many people confused or uncertain in their search for spiritual truth and meaning. Because few people have the time or opportunity to research these movements fully, these books provide essential information and insights for their spiritual journeys. All books but the summary volume, Truth and Error, contain five sections: -A concise introduction to the group being surveyed -An overview of the group’s theology – in its own words -Tips for witnessing effectively to members of the group -A bibliography with sources for further study -A comparison chart that shows the essential differences between biblical Christianity and the group -Truth and Error, the last book in the series, consists of parallel doctrinal charts compiled from all the other volumes. -Three distinctives make this series especially useful to readers: -Information is carefully distilled to bring out truly essential points, rather than requiring readers to sift their way through a sea of secondary details. -Information is presented in a clear, easy-to-follow outline form with “menu bar” running heads. This format greatly assists the reader in quickly locating topics and details of interest. -Each book meets the needs and skill levels of both nontechnical and technical readers, providing an elementary level of refutation and progressing to a more advanced level using arguments based on the biblical text.
    The writers of these volumes are well qualified to present clear and reliable information and help readers to discern truth from falsehood.

    Although the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) is not the largest or best-known religious group in America, its belief system pervades our society-especially in politics and on college campuses across the country. Unitarian Universalism is a “politically correct” faith, in which truth is relative; “tolerance” of “alternative lifestyles” and beliefs-including homosexuality, radical feminism, and abortion on demand–is the highest virtue; reason, conscience, and experience are the guides to truth; and the Bible is a myth and Jesus Christ but one of many inspirational (but fallible) teachers. This guide explores and refutes the beliefs and attitudes of what is the most highly educated of all religious groups in North America (49.5% are college graduates). Why this series? This is an age when countless groups and movements, old and new, mark the religious landscape in our culture, leaving many people confused or uncertain in their search for spiritual truth and meaning.

  • Goddess Worship Witchcraft And Neopaganism

    $9.99

    The twentieth century has seen a remarkable revival of “the Old Religion,” as adherents of New-paganism call the native religious traditions of Europe and tribal traditions from North America that predated Christianity. Many neo-pagan groups identify with Celtic (Druidic), Egyptian, Native American, Norse, or Roman traditions; others with modern science-fiction motifs; and still others with witchcraft. Neo-paganism is occultic in nature. A central figure in much of Neo-paganism is the Mother Goddess, who has been introduced and worshiped among certain feminists even in some mainline Protestant churches. Why this series?

  • Jesus Only Churches

    $9.99

    Unlike Jehovah’s Witnesses, who deny the Trinity by demoting Jesus to a mere man, the “Jesus Only” churches deny the Trinity by claiming that there is only one God, and that Jesus is the Father and the Holy Spirit. “Jesus Only” churches not only require baptism for salvation, but also stipulate that it must be baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ only, and not in the name of the Father, the son, and the Holy Spirit. Thus, these churches distort the gospel and the historic, orthodox understanding of Jesus. Why this series?

    Belief in Satan worship is often viewed as an embarrassing throwback to the superstitions of another time. And “selling your soul to the Devil”? Nothing more than an overworked theme in literature and opera. To the contrary, Bob and Gretchen Passantino show how, in the midst of prevailing attitudes of skepticism and disbelief, Satanism has made unprecedented inroads into our society.

    Many make the mistake of thinking because a thing is common, it is probably harmless. Masonic Temples are everywhere. Are the Masons just another “service organization”? Though their rites are secret, Masons assure outsiders that their practices are totally compatible with Christianity. But there is an injunction to each Mason to practice “his particular religious creed, that revelation of the Deity which is recognized by his religion.” What really goes on behind the Temple door? Here is a discerning, detailed response.

    Is evil a state of mind that can be changed? Is there a latent divinity in us all? Is there a personal God? The answers to these questions given by the mind sciences: groups such as Christian Science, Religious Science, and the Unity School of Christianity are not the same ones given by orthodox Christianity. Moreover, these mind sciences appeal to many people who seek cures to illness that conventional medicine and Christianity do not offer. Can we put our trust in them? Why this series?

    The zeal and dedication of Jehovah’s Witnesses mask a highly disciplined organization that has a troubled history. Moreover, their thorough knowledge of their own scriptures gives a pretense of having spiritual truth. The movement has grown about 1.1 million worldwide in 1965 to 4.4 million today. Yet all is not what it seems in the Watchtower Society. How do the teachings of the Jehovah’s Witnesses run counter to orthodox Christianity? What drives converts to give hundreds of hours a year to “witnessing”? What draws converts to a cult of strict control by religious leaders?

    There are plenty of books that tell you what a particular cult believes. “Out Of The Cults And Into The Church” shows you the turmoil and adjustments that former cult members experience as they grow in Christian faith and come to terms with bilical truth. Drawing upon the composite experiences of former cult members from Mormonism, the Unification Church, Hare Krishnas, and her own experience, Janis Hutchinson provides a one-of-a-kind counseling tool for pastors, counselors, and friends seeking to understand and help both former cult members and active cult members who are “investigating” evangelical Christianity. “Out Of The Cults And Into The Church” answers the difficult questions faced by all who have left cults and those who counsel them.

  • Christian Counseling And Occultism

    $23.99

    4 Parts
    338 Pages

    Additional Info
    One of the least known aspects of the Christian life, and therefore among the least understood, is that of spiritual warfare. Most Christians are quite familiar with basic factors such as regeneration, newness of life in Christ, the Spirit filled life, the fruit of the Spirit, and the witnessing for Christ; but it seems that relatively few are familiar with the mortal combat between light and darkness, between God and Satan. In this book, “Christian Counseling And Occultism” Dr. Kurt E. Koch makes a signifigant contribution.

    Out of his wide pastoral and evagnelistic ministry, Dr. Koch presents the facts on satanic warfare against the people of God. With objectivity he faces the possibility of natural explanations given by psychologists and psychiatrists, and shows their insufficiency in many areas. He is deeply taught in the Scriptures and knows by experience the adequacy of the Christian’s armour: the girdle of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of the Gospel, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, the sword of the Spirit, and in particular, the weapon of all- prayer in the Spirit.

    Dabbling in various aspects of the occult–such as fortune telling, astrology, magic, spiritism, the New Age movement–has become an accepted practice among all levels of our society. Yet beneath their benign appearances, all of these practices harbor hidden spiritual forces. Occult Bondage and Deliverance sounds a clear warning of their accompanying dangers.

    Valuable features of this work include definitions of terms used in the occult world, how to distinguish between disease and the demonic, and advice for counseling the sick, the troubled, and the occultly oppressed. Dr. Kurt Koch finds that the only answer for deliverance is in the Bible and in Jesus Christ.
