    The Truth Behind Contemplative Spirituality and Ancient Wisdom

    The full title of this book is For Many Shall Come in My Name: How the "Ancient Wisdom" is Drawing Millions of People into Mystical Experiences and Preparing the World For the End of the Age. It's a long title but sums up the topic.

    The new trend within the Christian church is a call to return to the "ancient wisdom", drawing on the teachings of Catholic mystics from centuries ago and combining them with the techniques of meditation, labrynth walking, centering, mantras, reiki, etc., newly packaged as contemplative prayer and spiritual formation.

    But there is nothing new here, as Yungen documents. The "ancient wisdom" permeating the church is the same old "new-age" teachings of paganism, the occult, and Eastern religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism. It just has a more savvy wrapping and is being embraced not only by mainstream Christian denominations but also in the fields of health, business, education, self-help, and arts and entertainment. It is presented as the science of metaphysics or as biblical; not for the open door to the dangerous side of the spiritual realm that it is.

    Critics of the new contemplative spirituality/spiritual formation/ancient wisdom movement in the church are often criticized as looking for demons behind every corner and trying to make the practices of this movement something they aren't. In my opinion, what makes Yungen's book different from that is that he clearly documents the true roots of the teachings, what the practices and "disciplines" of it really mean, what participants open themselves to spiritually, and most importantly, why none of it is biblical as he documents what scripture really says about it all.

    I recommend this book to any Christian who wants to know the truth behind the contemplative spirituality movement with its call to seek God in "the silence" and follow the other "disciplines" of spiritual formation.

    I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
