    Is Halloween innocent?...

    John Ankerberg, John Weldon, Dillon Burroughs<BR/>Harvest House Publishers, 2008<BR/>ISBN: 9780736922197<BR/>Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for ReviewYourBook.com, 10/08<BR/>5 stars<BR/>Is Halloween innocent?...<BR/>The authors begin The Facts On Halloween by taking a look at the origin of the celebration. The roots lie in the pagan practices of the Druids. The jack-o-lantern comes from the Irish. <BR/>John Ankerberg, John Weldon, and Dillon Burroughs offer some very good reasons for Christians to avoid participating in Halloween. Why would we want to dress our children as witches, ghosts, and vampires? <BR/>We should be emulating God--not demons. The authors back up their opinions with scriptures. I have never been comfortable with this ¿holiday.¿ John Ankerberg, John Weldon, and Dillon Burroughs enlighten readers. This is one reader that will not be participating this year. The Facts On Halloween is easy to read and understand. Christians, don¿t remain ignorant on this topic.

    ¿Insightful¿

    I knew that the history of Halloween started with the Druids. I did not realize the horrible meanings behind the traditions. The history of Halloween is also tied to the idea of purgatory and the Catholic Church. Learn the meanings behind the costumes, trick-or-treating, and jack o¿ lanterns. Learn about communicating with spirits, and learn about witches. Mentioned in this book is a teacher who patiently explained, in depth, to her students about not all witches being bad. I hope the parents took their children out of that school. Apparently, witches are more common than I realized. Many bible references are provided. The question throughout the book is, ¿As Christians, should we celebrate Halloween?¿ The authors suggest that we do not. They mention that children will not be hurt because of not celebrating Halloween. They also argue that calling it a ¿Harvest Festival¿ is not good enough we need to do away with it completely. This year, our children will be hunting for Easter eggs on Halloween. They are excited about it. I recommend you read this book. You may decide to come up with an alternative to Halloween.
