Overview

Aquarius Descending by Martha C. Lawrence

Martha C. Lawrence's original and appealing heroine, Elizabeth Chase, is a licensed P.I. and parapsychologist who combines her psychic insight with old-fashioned detective work. Reluctantly persuaded to look into the disappearence of her boyfriend's ex-fiance into a cult, Elizabeth goes undercover to investigate. But have her unique powers finally met their match?

“Lawrence writes a gripping, believable story, distinguished by a wise and sensitive narrative voice, that even those skeptical of psychics will enjoy.” - Publishers Weekly

I was quite put off by this book, because the author seems to use it as an excuse for advocating religious intolerance. She takes ideas from Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism, among other traditions, presents them in the most absurd and superficial way possible, and then portrays them as evil. Her detective assumes that no one could believe such things unless the people are brainwashed with subliminal messages or drugged. What is worse, her detective is supposed to be knowledeable about 'spirituality.' As a theologian, I can do without this kind of 'expertise,' just as I can do without this level of intolerance. A generation ago a nasty parady of Catholic thought might have been tolerated. When John F. Kennedy was elected president, some people said, quite seriously, that the pope would run the country because Kennedy was a Catholic. We've come a long way since then, and that kind of religious intolerance would no longer be acceptable. But we haven't come far enough if this kind of nasty parody of Eastern thought can be written and published. I'm painfully aware that negativity sells in this culture, but it doesn't sell to me.
