Overview

Romancing Death sheds the light of God on the popularity of vampirism in today’s pop culture. This fascinating exposé of the dark realities behind romanticizing the occult in our current culture reveals the naked truth about how the church has not addressed the needs of people young and old who fill the holes in their souls and spirits with evil rather than good.

Weaving his personal history—including involvement in Wicca, Freemasonry, and vampirism—the author lays out the literary and cultural history of vampirism and closely analyzes the romanticized presentation of the occult in the Twilight saga.

Romancing Death is a clarion call for the Church to take responsibility to be true salt and light in the world.

    An Analysis of Pop Culture, the Occult, and Spiritual Bondage

    William Schnoebelen introduces his book “Romancing Death” with a candid look at his experiences in the occult, witchcraft, and vampirism. He openly discusses how he was blinded by the dark and dangerous deceptions of satan, disguised as an angel of light. He details how he became involved in WICCA, witchcraft, and satanism. Schnoebelen introduces the reader to the phenomenon of the vampire in religion, culture, and history. He explores contemporary vampire cults, lore, and literature and the myth and reality of vampirism. He looks at how the vampire is portrayed in popular fiction, films, and television. He goes on to warn how contemporary authors, in this genre of books, are targeting susceptible teens as their readers. He alerts parents, youth leaders, and educators of how over exposure can result in addictive behaviorism during these sensitive formative years. Other features included in the book are: a synopsis of the “Twilight Saga,” Biblical admonitions, insight in to Mormon doctrine compared to Christian theology, and a guide to Biblical entertainment. The extensive end-notes provide an excellent resource for further study. The narrative is filled with examples of individuals delivered from demonic bondage. His testimony of victory over enslavement to the personal addictions to drinking blood and the use of cocaine give additional credibility to Schnoebelen’s conclusions. Readers will be divided in their acceptance of these conclusions. His writing is strong, authoritative, and disturbing. “Romancing Death: A True Story of Vampirism, Death, the Occult, a guide to Biblical and Deliverance” is a wakeup call to Christians to the dangers of occult, the reality of spiritual and demonic, and the promise of deliverance of these powers. A complimentary copy of the book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own. As reviewed for Midwest Book Review.
