Looking for a cogent and well-documented introduction on cults and the occult? Edmond Gruss has revised his 1974 classic Cults and the Occult with the most up-to-date information and research to offer you one of the best introductions available. He has written extensively on cults and the occult, including books on the Ouija board and on the Jehovah's Witnesses. His passion for the truth of Scripture will enable you to clearly understand the danger of the cults portrayed in this book.
Gruss looks at several major cults/occultic groups. They are: Jehovah's Witnesses; the Latter-day Saints (Mormons); Christian Science; Unity School of Christianity; Worldwide Church of God; Spiritualismm (Spiritism); Seventh-Day Adventism; Occult Obsession and the New Cults; Astrology; Bahá'í; Rosicrucianism; The Occult and the Ouija board; Edgar Cayce and the A.R.E.; Sun Myung Moon and the Unification Church; and the New Age Movement. Gruss also offers a chapter with practical advice for Christians in our confusing age.
Each cult/occultic group is defined, and their history is briefly examined. Then Gruss looks at their primary doctrines as seen in their respective literature. There is a select bibliography for each group, along with information about Christian groups seeking to minister to them.
Gruss has done his homework, and offers an extremely well-documented book, with almost thirty pages of endnotes alone. The extensive documentation places this book on the top of a short list of books that any Christian seeking to understand cults and the occult must have in their library.
