Read an Excerpt

Chapter 1 Enter Rebecca

From the first moment she crossed through the doorway into that building, she sensed that there was something different about the place. A hovering of darkness, as it were. Something she could not define, but knew was there. She knew also that it was something that she had never experienced before.

Rebecca is a doctor. She was just entering Memorial Hospital for the first time to begin her training in internal medicine. She had finished medical school the previous month and had now moved away from home really for the first time in the 30 years of her life. She had no idea that the tragedies she would see in that hospital would forever change both her and the course of her life. The brooding darkness she sensed in her spirit seemed to be watchfully waiting . . . waiting. Suddenly it would strike, plunging Rebecca into a series of events that would test to the utmost her commitment to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The first test was quick to come - Rebecca had been working as a doctor at that hospital for about 2 months. One night while she was working in the Emergency Room, a man in his 30's was brought in about 2 A.M. Rebecca recoiled in horror as she viewed his mangled and torn body. She had 6 years of experience working in Emergency Rooms (E.R.) in large inner city hospitals as a Registered Nurse prior to becoming a doctor, but she had never seen anything like this! As she worked rapidly with the other personnel in the E.R. to save the young pastor's life, her mind raced. How could this be? Who would do such a thing? He had obviously been tortured. His body was partially skinned, he had multiple burns, stab wounds, lashes from whips, and most horrifying of all, holes in the palms of his hands from spikes being driven through them. He was unconscious and in deep shock.

After the initial medical care was done, the patient stabilized and then transferred to the Intensive Care Unit, Rebecca looked for the police officers who had brought him in. They had little to say other than the fact that this was a kidnapping case. They had found the body and at first thought he was dead. They refused to talk about the incident any further and left quickly, mumbling something about having to file their report.

Everyone else in the E.R. went on with their work as if nothing unusual had happened. No one seemed particularly surprised or upset about the condition of the patient. Again, Rebecca felt overwhelmingly that brooding darkness. She was greatly puzzled and concerned, but was, herself, quickly caught up in the pressure of the work at hand. Nothing in her background could possibly have prepared her for the shock of that young pastor's testimony of what -had happened to him prior to coming into the Emergency Room that night. She did not know that the next blow would come to one of her own patients who was very dear to her.

But first, let us trace the training the Lord gave Rebecca to prepare her for all that was to happen.

Rebecca had the tremendous privilege and blessing of being born to faithful Christian parents who prayed daily for her. She had accepted Jesus as her Savior at a very young age, but knew nothing about a personal walk with Him. She was raised in a very tight and narrow religious group and was not permitted to form friends or interact with anyone outside the group. She was rejected both within the group and without - mocked and ridiculed at school and by the other members of the religious group; she grew up very lonely. She also had much illness, spending her childhood in and out of the hospital. Then as she got older, she was discovered to have an incurable and debilitating neuromuscular disease. But her loving parents provided stability in her life and their prayers surrounded and protected her, no doubt keeping her from entering the occult world that snares so many other young people with similar backgrounds.

During the first year of medical school she came to the point of finally committing her life to the Lord in all areas, making Jesus the master in her life as well as Savior. The four years of medical school were an intense struggle because of the neuromuscular illness and also because of the lack of fin lances. During those four years Rebecca learned to trust the Lord, to walk with Him day by day, to hear Him speak to her in her spirit, to follow His guidance, and to experience His provision for her every need.

Before medical school she had been a Registered Nurse for seven years. Then, as a result of the Lord's powerful working in her life, and a whole string of miracles, she left nursing, returned to school and then on to medical school.

At the time Rebecca entered Memorial Hospital she knew absolutely nothing about Satanism or of Elaine, a powerful witch who lived near by. Rebecca never dreamed that her walk with Christ in that hospital would cause such shock waves in the spirit world that the forces of darkness would become enraged. She became involved in a titanic struggle as Elaine, one of the top witches in the U.S., led an organized attack by many witches using all of their powers and skills of witchcraft to try to kill Rebecca.

The internship year is the first year of training that a doctor receives after graduating from medical school, if he or she is going to specialize in something. It is by far the most intense year of training, and the most frightening one. It was no different for Rebecca at Memorial than anyone else except that she was constantly aware of something so strange but undefinable about that hospital. No one else seemed to notice it, including her few Christian colleagues. From the first she found an overwhelming atmosphere of hatred, back-biting and Fighting within the whole department, and indeed, within the whole hospital itself. It was an extremely cold atmosphere. This on top of the tremendous physical and emotional pressures of the year were used by the Lord to greatly increase her closeness to Him.

She found almost from the beginning that there was an unusual resistance to the gospel. Over and over people with whom she tried to share Jesus would flatly refuse to even listen. In fact, within six months of the start of her training at that hospital, the hospital administration had all the

Gideon bibles removed from the patient rooms and a memo was posted on each nursing unit stating that the hospital would fire, on the spot, any employee who was caught "evangelizing" the patients. Also, any minister that was coming to the hospital to visit patients was not permitted to visit with anyone except their own private parishioners, and, if the nurses found them "evangelizing" other patients they were to have them escorted from the hospital by security and asked not to return again. A chaplaincy service was not permitted, which was also unusual. Indeed, it seemed as if an effort was being made to wipe away any mention of Christianity within the walls of the hospital.

Rebecca was first assigned to the intensive care unit and immediately was plunged into a whirl-wind of activities. She spent up to 120 hours per week working at the hospital. Because of this schedule she attributed the steady worsening of her physical condition to her exhaustion.

Then the Lord began steadily laying upon her heart that she must go into the hospital early each morning to spend an hour in prayer before work asking the Lord for that institution and that city, that the gospel would be proclaimed and bear fruit. As she began obeying the Lord and praying each morning an hour before work, repeatedly she found herself compelled by the Holy Spirit to pray asking the Lord to restrain the powers of darkness in that place. Again and again she found herself quoting Numbers 10:35 where Moses said:

" Rise up, Lord, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee."

She did not know why she was praying in this manner, and indeed sometimes thought that it was strange to do so, but over and over the Holy Spirit compelled her to pray in such a manner.

As the Lord steadily increased the burden on her heart for the souls in that place she began to pray daily asking the Lord to permit her to stand in the gap for the hospital and the city, as in Ezekiel 22:30-3 1 "And I sought for a man among them, that, should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord God."

She was not sure just what was involved in "standing in the gap" but asked the Lord to use her if He could.

During Rebecca's first few months at Memorial, God taught her a very valuable lesson in total dependence on Him in her medical work. Late one night a patient was admitted to the Coronary Care Unit with severe chest pain, high blood pressure and a possible heart attack. It was Rebecca's responsibility to examine the patient and care for him that night. He gave her a list of the medicines that he was taking and among them was a particularly good one to use for lowering blood pressure while simultaneously taking the work load off of the heart. He adamantly stated that he was taking a particular dose and Rebecca accepted his word. She elected to give him that dose in an effort to lower his blood pressure and to relieve the work load on his heart in hopes of preventing a heart attack. What she did not know was that that dosage is very dangerous to give unless she had herself gradually worked the patient up to that amount.

One hour later, the nurses called her and told her that the patient's blood pressure had dropped very low, that he was in shock and looked as if he were dying. Pure terror and dismay overwhelmed her. She called her superior and told him about the situation and asked what could be done to reverse the effects of the medicine she had given. He coldly told her that she had made a stupid mistake and that there was absolutely nothing that could be done, except to see if the patient lived or died. No medicine was available that could be used to reverse the effects of the one she had given. He went on to add that he, too, had made a similar mistake as an intern and that his patient had sustained greatly extended damage to his heart as a result of that period in shock and had nearly died.

Many thoughts were madly racing through Rebecca's head as she walked down the lonely, dark halls to the CCU (Coronary Care Unit) that night to see the patient. Guilt and fear and self-chastisement were uppermost amongst them. Cold sweat ran down her back as she anguished over the fact that in all probability she had killed the patient. Suddenly the Holy Spirit showed her the error of the thoughts uppermost in her mind. She had been thinking, "God made an orderly universe where cause and effect take place in an orderly manner. Because of your stupid mistake this man will probably die. Since this medicine is absolutely irreversible, the effect will take place, so there is no need even to pray or to expect God to break into his orderly universe just for you and your stupidity."

Gently the Holy Spirit flooded into her entire being the sure knowledge that she was different! She was a child of the King! And, in so being, had a special privilege that the other doctor had not had. She had the right to ask God the Father, in Jesus' name, to correct her mistake. That was one of the many things for which Jesus had died on the cross.

She abruptly turned and ran to the chapel and fell on her knees before the Lord and prayed earnestly asking the Lord to correct her mistake, laying claim to the fact that she was a child of the King and standing on Hebrews 4:16:

"Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."

She arose from her knees and went back down to the CCU. When she arrived she found that the patient's blood pressure had returned to normal and he was pain free! A new Electrocardiogram showed his heart had returned to normal. He was discharged two days later without any heart damage at all.

Rebecca also learned to hear the Lord's guidance more acutely on an hour-to-hour basis. Time after time He would speak in that soft voice in her spirit, bringing a mistake to her attention before it could be carried out, or bringing to her attention something she had forgotten or overlooked, or something that she had read or learned about in the past. She learned to fast and pray, asking the Lord to reveal to her the key to the diagnosis of particularly obscure cases. She also learned to rely on the Lord to give her skill in her hands, and never performed any procedure on any patient without first praying and asking the Lord Jesus, the Great Physician, to put His hands within hers and guide them with His skill. In all of her years so far, the Lord has continuously been faithful and she has never had a serious complication resulting from any procedure she has done.

About six months into her internship, just as Rebecca was again assigned to the intensive Care Unit (ICU), the young pastor she saw in the emergency room finally recovered enough to talk. Rebecca had followed his progress closely, constantly praying for him and was drawn by the Lord to frequently stop by his room to talk with him. One day he told her what had to the hospital.

Bob was the pastor of a small Christian church in that city. He had become involved in ministering to some people who worshiped Satan. He told Rebecca that there was a very large satanic community in a town close by, and that Satanism was rampant in that state. He had, at the Lord's leading, been steadily bringing a number of these people to Jesus. They had turned from serving Satan and made Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior. He also helped them cast out the demons that they had asked to dwell in them to gain powers of witchcraft. The night Rebecca first saw him, he had been kidnapped by the satanists and taken to one of their meetings. He was taken up on stage in front of the group and tortured. They were in the process of nailing him to a cross when one of the members shouted out that someone had seen something suspicious and called the police. (The satanists had a police scanner radio and monitored all the calls.) Bob had passed out while being crucified and knew nothing more until he awoke in the hospital bed.

Rebecca was astounded, she had never heard of such a thing. Perhaps this was the explanation of the brooding darkness she could feet in that hospital? The next revelations were quick to follow.

As she started into her second rotation in the Intensive Care Unit, her uneasiness continued to grow. Each night she was on call, she had the responsibility for all of the patients in the critical care units. She began noticing as she really happened just prior to his admission was prayerfully working with the patients that there were many deaths which, to her, were unexplainable.

There is normally an orderly traceable sequence of events in the illness and/or death of any patient. For example, if someone went into shock (low blood pressure) because he was bleeding somewhere, once the bleeding was stopped by surgery or whatever and the blood volume he had lost replaced by blood transfusions, the patient's blood pressure should not suddenly drop unless he started bleeding again, or developed some other complication such as an overwhelming infection.

However, many of the patients Rebecca worked with would just reach a stabilized condition and then suddenly, for no traceable reason, take a turn for the worse. Their heart would suddenly stop beating, or they would stop breathing, or their blood pressure would drop to zero. Many of these died shortly despite all measures taken medically to save them. Rebecca followed up on the autopsies of many of these patients, and was even more puzzled when no cause for their death was found other than the original problem which had brought them into the hospital.

The other problem which greatly concerned her was the frequency and content of what is called, in the medical field, an "acute ICU psychosis." When patients undergo the great stress of a critical illness, they are placed in an ICU (Intensive Care Unit) for a number of days, usually with the lights on 24 hours a day, monitors going, and no window to look out of. Because of this a certain percent will become disoriented and start to have hallucinations. (That is, see things that are not real.) However, in this hospital, the incidence of ICU psychoses was many times more than anything Rebecca had experienced in any of the several other hospitals she had worked in, both as a R.N. and a medical student.

Rebecca felt led by the Lord to take the time to talk to many of the patients about just what they were "seeing." Much to her surprise, almost all of them told her that they had seen demons in their rooms!

Greatly concerned about all of this, Rebecca started mentioning the incidence of deaths and ICU psychoses in the medical conferences held with all the interns and residents each morning. Nobody else seemed concerned, or even to believe her. After her third attempt to discuss the problem she was called down to the office of the director of the training program and told to shut her mouth on the subject, that she was not experienced enough to know what she was talking about. When Rebecca pointed out that she also had ten years experience as a R.N. in addition to medical school, she was told that if she continued to create trouble she would be kicked out of the training program.

Her morning prayer sessions took on a new intensity as she earnestly sought a revelation from the Lord as to what was going on. The first break-through came through one of her own patients.

Pearl was an elderly black lady from the Southern United States who had been under Rebecca's care for about six months. Pearl was a very strong Christian and Rebecca had come to know her well and love her very much. One evening Pearl came to the hospital very ill and Rebecca admitted her to the Intensive Care Unit. The next morning as Rebecca went to the ICU to start making rounds the nurses told her that Pearl was having an ICU psychosis. Rebecca was somewhat startled, because she knew Pearl was a very strong Christian, a lady who had suffered much and didn't panic easily.

As she went into Pearl's room she found her crying. When she asked her why, Pearl told her that if she did not transfer her out of the ICU that day that "that night nurse would kill her." Then Pearl told Rebecca about how the night shift nurse caring for her had come in and talked to her and told her that there was no need for her to fight to stay alive, that she could so easily be reincarnated into her next life. The nurse also told Pearl that she would call on "the higher powers" to come and escort Pearl into her next "beautiful life." When the nurse laid her hands on Pearl and spoke words of a foreign sounding language, Pearl recognized it to be an incantation. Pearl knew from her own heritage about voodoo and black magic and demons, and she declared that she had seen demons in the room. She told Rebecca that she was too weak to right anymore and if the same thing would happen tonight she knew she would die.

Rebecca was astounded! She knew Pearl well enough that she didn't think she was lying and she was sure that she wasn't disoriented in any way. The nurse Pearl was referring to happened to be the nurse in charge of the ICU on the night shift. She was an older lady, pleasant, attractive and an excellent nurse. She was well organized, knowledgeable and saw to it that the patients got good care. She was highly respected by the medical staff and the rest of the nursing staff. Rebecca had always found her a bit cold and withdrawn, but had thought it was the pressures of her work load. She could not find fault with her work in any way.

Rebecca knew she could not talk to any of her colleagues about the problem because they would all say that she was crazy. Neither could she accuse the nurse of anything because she had no proof. At that time Rebecca had very little knowledge of witches and almost no knowledge about demons. There was only one thing she could do. She took the problem to the Lord in prayer. Every spare moment she had that day was spent on her knees in prayer down in the chapel. (She always had the chapel to herself because no one else ever used it.) Late in the day, the Lord confirmed to her heart that Pearl was telling the truth. The Lord also commanded Rebecca to go and sit at Pearl's bedside all night that night as Pearl was too ill to be safely transferred out of the ICU. This was possible as Rebecca was not on call that particular night.

What happened that night was to change Rebecca's life forever. As she sat at Pearl's bedside, not really expecting anything to happen, she felt direct demonic oppression as she had never felt it before. Helen, the nurse in charge of the ICU, did not come into Pearl's room at all that night. Rebecca felt an incredible unseen power coming against her. She felt as if there was a giant unseen hand trying to squash her into a little grease spot on the floor and as if some unseen force was trying to suck the very life out of her. She tried to scientifically reason the feeling away, tried to convince herself that it was just her own imagination, but none of this helped. She felt her body beginning to weaken to the point where she could hardly sit up. Pearl felt it too. So, she and Pearl joined hands, and Rebecca prayed quietly asking the Lord to cover them with a shield of the precious blood of Jesus.

"And they overcame him [Satan) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony. Revelation 12:11

The deffinition of ignorace is "The condition of being uneducated, unaware, or uninformed." (The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition Copyright © 2000 by Houghton Mifflin Company) That is exactly what this author, or rather, this book, is. To assume that what you hear from everybody, ANYbody is right is sense less and asinine. And for those of you who claim that this book is for the open-minded only are contradicting yourselves. This books very nature is closed-mindedness and fear. Witches donot belive in Satan, or any devil for that matter. I Suggest doing some actual research on Wicca and Witchcraft before you jump to anymore false conclusions.

If you are truly attempting to follow Christ; and especially if someone you love is in bondage to satan and his kingdom, this book will be the beginning of a journey that will forever change your life. The first time I read it, I didn't believe all of it. The second time I read it, after spending a lot of time learning about the Lord, more was revealed to me. The third time I was given a glimpse into the very real world of spiritual warfare. This book WILL show you a new path. Pray for the understanding that God is ready for you to have, then prepare to read cover to cover. You WON'T want to put it down, unless it's to take notes.

This book was a real help. Some of the situations presented in this book I've faced in my everyday life, but never realized the cause for them,now after reading this book my eyes are now opened and I'm alert, watching for my adversary. I recommend it to everyone,who is willing to fight for the crown of victory in Jesus. Read it prayerfully.

I did not want to give this book any stars. I am saddened once again to see my religon represented by someone who obviously knows nothing about Wicca. It is a life affirming religon, and just for the record, we do not acknowlege Satan. That is a Judeo/Xtian belief. I just wish that those who write books would talk with those who have an accurate idea of the subject. This book is written by someone who obviously jumped off the sanity wagon and decided to blame something else for her bad choices. To put it into Xtian terms, she is bearing false witness against her neighbor. I believe that is a commandment. So, by doing this how much of a Xtian is she?

What a remarkable fairy tale. How these works can be put on the shelf and anyone of sane and sound mind could view this book as anything other than a loose mix of nonimaginative fiction and superstition is quite beyond me. Werewolves. Vampires. 'Bride of Satan'. This book should be on the shelf next to Harry Potter. What a fantasy.

The author presents a rather fantastic tale of worldwide power brokerage, arms dealing and marriage to the devil that a critical reader will find hard to swallow. It seems this book should be categorized as religious fiction, especially since there is abundant journalistic reporting available on the Internet to support this conclusion.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Sad. Sad and paranoid. This woman clearly has no idea what she is talking about. For instance, do any of you born again people realize that Satanists don't torture people? That causing harm in any way goes against the religious morals of most pagans? The list goes on and on. If you have a need to demonize a group of people, for God's sake, at least know what they do. Otherwise, you make yourself sound like a complete moron. If I could give this book negative stars, I would.

THIS BOOK IS THE BEST BOOK ON SPIRITUAL WARFARE EVER WRITTEN. DR. BROWN GIVES SO MUCH INFORMATION TO HELP IN OUR SPIRITUAL WALK WITH GOD. THE VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT SAYS MY PEOPLE PARISH BECAUSE OF LACK OF KNOWLEDGE IS SO TRUE AFTER READING THIS BOOK. IF YOU HAVE NOT READ IT I RECOMMEND YOU TO READ IT TODAY. THERE ARE SOME CURSES TO BE BROKEN SO GET STARTED.

Had any of this actually been true it would have grabbed national media attention and had every law enforcement agency slobbering to solve the case and make the careers of several agents or detectives. It is an entirely fictional and frankly horrible story of hatred for anything different. If the story's 'lessons' are to be believed then no one, including tthe writer or any christian can be anything but a satanist. It is ludicris and fails to acknowledge any reality except the writers dark and oppresive paranoia. It gives christianity a horrendously bad name and should not be read with even an iota of seriousness or respect. For a work of fiction, I can forgive alot, but this definitely the single worst book I've read this year.

*sigh* I am very sad that a person could have such a vendetta against an entire group of people that she would publish so hateful a work on them. Wiccans/Witches are very kind people. Their magick does not harm others. Quite a number of them are vegetarians so as not to harm animal life. They do not believe in Satan. They worship a god and a goddess because they see both male and female aspects in nature, and male and female spirits are definately not the same. It is truly unfortunate and disappointing that such a work could be published and believed. But, fellow pagans, do not take this to be a representation of Christians as a whole! They are kind and loving people, as we are. Sadly, a few are really misled.

Being a Christian myself, I find this book to be a prime example of the self-glorifying, narcissistic, behavior that runs all too rampant throughout Christian religions today. I found the absence of accuracy and obvious lack of research into the main subject of the book to be sad and laughable. This kind of obviously blatant attack on and refusal to understand someone else's strongly held beliefs is one reason why we Christians are so vilified today, and why we find such opposition from people even to listen to what we are saying. After all, would you Christians out there who believe in this kind of hopped-up faith bashing, really want to talk religion with a Pagan or a Satanist or a Wicca (all different religions by the way) who had already made up his/her mind that Christianity (your RELIGION) is the worst possible offense there could possible be, and you are evil incarnate for believing in it? You'd be better off just throwing this book in the trash and reading something that accurately portrayed non-Christian beliefs. That way, you'd be better prepared to have, at worst, a friendly debate, and not turn them off all together with bigotry, scorn and just plain ignorance. Don't judge, listen.

Witches do not even believe in Satan, he is a primarily Christian deity and they are the ones who give him credit and power, NOT Wiccans. Whoever wrote this is very uneducated, misinformed and ignorant of the truth. Just one more example of the spread of hate, prejudice and fear in the name of God.

Wow!!! I found this really offensive. I did not like it at all. Probably the worst read in a long long time. That is a huge insult considering I read 60-70 books a year.

This book is truly amazing. I've read some of the reviews that were left by people who don't believe in the Lord saying that 'Christians' should not even think about the devil. You know what's funny? That's what Satan wants you to do. The Lord, Jesus Christ is real and so is the devil. We have to put our faith in the Lord to overcome the devil, which is what this book talks about. There are satanists out there and we need Christ to overcome them and the devil. The book is great. It shows in the end, Christ always lands on top and the devil will get what he deserves. The question is, 'who will you follow?'
Guest More than 1 year ago
Can I quote the Bible here? 'Assuredly I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!' (Matthew 8:10) Jesus said this after having met a PAGAN Roman centurion. Jesus had countless quotes about LOVING-KINDNESS (sound familiar?) to everybody. Including Pagans. Satanism is something different. True Satanism probably doesn't exist. But Jesus's path is not the One True Way. And people of other faiths REALLY don't like it if you advertise your beliefs. I was Christian but this attitude about converting the whole world pushed me out. See? It works both ways.

How much more ignotant can you christians be. Most of us left your gaith to begin with because wr know more about it than you do. Ihave a minor in theology, have tead the bible cover to cover at least six times, and left the church because of what I know. WE leave you slone,we don't proselytize and we wish you well in your choden path. Try doing the dame thinh.

I dont even have to read it to know that it is a book of nonsence surrounded in ignorance. Witchcraft in the sense that this book portrays it in just the discription is a pure Lie. Those whom do follow the pagan religions and or actually perform witchcraft are nothing like what is portrayed in this book. They are peace loving folk who believe in the idea of "harm none". I am sure that as with any religion their are some scicopaths that have performed a bad act or two and claimed it was witchcraft...but they are rare and far inbetween...unlike christians who throughout history have perfomed horrible acts of murder, torture, and other mortifying acts in the name of their gods. I still to often see horrid actions by "good christian folk" who then go back and ask for forgivness so they can do it again guiltfree. Jeese and they point fingers at us. How any "christian" could wright a pack of lies like this and not be fearing for thier own soul is beyond me? Remember Judge Not?

This book is not meant to encourage people who are practicing witchcraft. It's meant to open your eyes up to what the Bible says about witchcraft and to guide those who wish to turn from a life ending in Hell for eternity to a life ending in everlasting life for eternity. It is in essence, an argument for why someone kept captive by Satan should instead start serving Christ and therefore God to experience freedom.

I think this book is nothing much but fiction. People dont really unnderstand the real meanings of Wicca. Its not Devil worshipping. None of that at all. So this book is mostly just based on opions and not facts about Wicca.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Ok folks... The problem with this book and the countless others like it is that, like most ideas Christians have about Pagan religions, the information isn't based on what practitioners of religions such as Wicca say about themselves, what they believe and hold true but is, rather, what Christians SAY they believe and hold true. THAT IS A HUGE HUGE DIFFERENCE. When I finally see a book where the Christian author has actually learned what Wiccans and other Pagan religions believe and base their book upon these actual facts from 'the horses mouth' so-to-speak I will have a LOT more respect for the book and the author even if I don't actually agree with the author's point of view. I won't be holding my breath, sadly. That being said...I don't have ANY respect at all for this book or the author.

I read this book and was surprise at how little people know about Wicca and/or paganism. It also made me question why a religion (christianity) would teach its followers to cry out McCarthyism about anyone who does not believe in what christianity believes. Isn't that teaching its followers to hate, fear and pity other people for being 'below(differnt from)' them. I mean how just, and/or pure is that? I mean the creator gave us all freewill and a conscience, just because he/she didn't guide me to where he/she 'guided' you, doesn't mean that I'm not a good person, it just means he/she has different life plans for me. I think Christians/Catholics need to stop hating , fearing, and trying to control other people, because as far as I'm concerned fear, hate and control are not pure and 'holy' thoughts or actions. I'm very proud to be in a belief system that teaches me to follow my God given gut instinct, it helps me to take resposibility for my own action and to stop blaming others (who are different than me) for the worlds problems. :-)

it makes me so sad to read such a prejudice outlook on people! I feel that the Lord must be greatly saddened by all the hatred that this book holds! Witches are not Satanists... they do not believe in Satan. Though they may not accept our Lord Jesus Christ as their savior, they are peaceful people who do us no harm. (there are always exceptions - in EVERY religion)! If a person calls themself a witch and does harm to others, then he/she is not really a witch. (Any harm done to another goes against the 'wiccan rede'). not only is this book full of hate and prejudice, it is not very well written! read the bible again and try to understand the concepts of love, acceptance, and peace!

The author of this book obviously did not do their homework. Satan worshipers and Witches are NOT the same thing. The name witch refers to the Wiccans and Pagans who take oaths to help people as best they can. Witches do NOT worship the devil, they are peaceful people who only look how to make their lives as well as the lives of others better.
