Witchcraft Goes Mainstream: Uncovering it's Alarming Impact on You and Your Familyby Brooks Alexander
Neopaganism has become one of the fastest-growing religious movements today. Christians are not immune from its influence. Witchcraft and occultism are knocking on the doors of American homes, gaining acceptance and prominence in media and advertising, and enticing people of all ages to dabble in deceptive and dangerous practices. Believers are asking,
*Is witchcraft just a passing fad? Is it a revival of ancient pagan traditions?
*Do witches worship Satan? What do they believe?
*How should Christians respond to witchcraft? What do I say to my teenage daughter who wants to experiment with witchcraft?
Brooks Alexander offers lucid and enlightening descriptions of witchcraft today and our culture's acceptance of it. He concludes by helping Christians formulate a reasonable response.

Alexander's study of the contemporary fascination with witchcraft clarifies a lot of confusion surrounding this subject. He untangles the historical misconceptions that have contributed to the confusion, revealing that the current Neo-pagan movement is of relatively recent vintage, despite its claim of a direct continuity with an ancient tradition. The book is thorough yet concise, profound without being ponderous, committed to a Christian worldview without being preachy.
Midnight Shadows -- you might take the time to actually read the book, instead of just going ballistic over the title. None of the lurid characterizations you invoke actually apply to the text itself.
Why are all of these anti-Wicca books so popular? Especially since all of them teach lies and old stereotypes! I could write a similar book except pointing out all of the dark parts of Christianity in revenge, but the way I see it is that it will only incite anger and promote the idea that all Christians are like that. Though I can't see why those Christians can't have the decency to respect us and let us go on our way without having to deal with all of your uninformed assumptions. The only impact it should have is a positive one, if someone finds happiness in it! We're not out to take over the world! We just want harmony!
