Overview


Recognizing the real face of the occult
 
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 wear. Its followers are legion, some of them blind to their own devotion while others pour out effort and intellect searching for an understanding of the divine.
 
It is the occult, and it dominates the world’s mind-set.
 
Jeff Harshbarger and his friends know about occult practices. After two unsuccessful suicide attempts and an offer to become a human sacrifice, Jeff left his life of Satanism to pursue a life with God. Dancing With the Devil tells his story along with the stories of nine others who have walked similar paths, including:
·          Satanism
·          Witchcraft
·          Demon possession
·          Spiritualism
·          Psychic vampirism
 
Each author’s account reveals the spiritual truths that enabled him or her to break free. Their stories weave a tapestry that shows the true face of the occult and the path we can take to break Satan’s hold on those caught in its crosshairs.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
 “Dancing With the Devil is far more than just intriguing true-life stories; it is a manual on how to break free from demonic chains and how to help others find true freedom through Christ. It is a must-read for anyone trapped on the dark side and for everyone desiring to rescue others from the shadows.” —Delron Shirley, former dean, Indiana Christian University, Noblesville, IN
 
“Powerful and eye opening to the kingdom of darkness. Every Christian should read this book. We are in a real warfare, and over half of God’s army is asleep.” —Cody Gunderson, senior pastor, Yosemite Lakes Community Church, Coarsegold, CA
 
“The occult in all its various disguises is causing havoc around the world. Jeff Harshbarger is not just a talker; he has been there and knows what others are going through. This book should be a message of hope to the thousands who are looking for a way out, because it will show them they are not alone.” —Doug Harris, Reachout Trust, Surrey, England, UK
 
“One of the most difficult aspects of being a missionary to cults and false religious movements is the resentment they have for Christians who communicate false information about their beliefs. This is most true in the area of Satanism and the occult. I have appreciated Jeff’s ministry, and Dancing With the Devil is a helpful tool in educating Christians about the beliefs of those with these worldviews.” —LL (Don) Veinot Jr., president, Midwest Christian Outreach, Inc., Wonder Lake, IL
 
“Jeff Harshbarger’s Dancing With the Devil is a unique approach to understanding occultism from a Christian point of view. If you are dealing with occult-related issues—either in your own life or the lives of others—this book needs to be in your library.” —Brooks Alexander, author of Witchcraft Goes Mainstream and founder of Spiritual Counterfeits Project, Berkeley, CA
 
Dancing With the Devil will touch your heart with compassion for those caught in the world of the occult and enrich your mind with the knowledge to help them. Jeff Harshbarger provides a fast-paced and fascinating look into the realm of the Prince of Darkness.”—Jill Martin Rische, author of The Kingdom of the Occult
