More About This Book

Overview

Being raised in the Pentecostal faith, the author had never given much thought to evil spiritual manifestations otherwise known as ghosts; that subject was considered to be junk, something to ignore and rise above. But in 1998 she and her husband rented a house in Seattle that exhibited spiritual problems that would not be ignored. These incidents prompted the author to research the subject of hauntings, resulting in this highly current, relevant and entertaining book about Ghosts and the Paranormal. Patricia Smith explores the media's take on this subject; current television programs are discussed at length, assessing their errant theories as to the nature of paranormal activity, which they all uniformly present as fact.The truth behind these hauntings and spirit activity are revealed with Scripture.
The Ouija board and what makes it work, Tarot cards and what is behind their revelations. The fascination and deceit of Necromancy and fortune telling-- where do they get their mystical information. And where does this spiritual knowledge and power come from?
An entire chapter is dedicated to Reincarnation, examining these ancient beliefs of multiple lives, from long-ago pagan civilizations to contemporary religions, and how the ever-widening dogmas entice those who seek to achieve immortality without worshipping God. And the chapter on Cults takes a look at some mainstream groups that may surprise you with their beliefs. The author offers this information as a tool to recognize the lures of religious cults and their inherent dangers.
Ghost hunters, teenagers, parents, and anyone interested in matters of ghosts and spirits will greatly benefit from reading this book.
"Finally, a delightful book on this subject for all ages."
