Product Description

In today's supernaturally infused society, there are many confusing experiences for teens. Stories of Ouija boards, encounters with aliens a la crop circles, and psychics on TV who use their mediumistic powers to "cross over" make it difficult to know how to identify a potential hoax from the real thing. This book written by youth speaker Mark Matlock, attempts to help you think clearly about what the Bible says regarding supernatural phenomenon. Drawing from over a decade of experience as a leader of nationwide student conferences, a research project he conducted with Barna Research on Teens and the Supernatural, and as a member of the international community of illusionists, Mark will help you learn how to "think" about supernatural events - some hoaxes others not. Matlock identifies "thinking traps" that lead to deception, such as not balancing the mind and emotions, mixing truth with lies, and making false association. With clarity, he shows you how to find Christ, and provides biblical answers to frequently asked questions about such things as Ouija boards, psychics, angels, and demons.

Publisher's Description

This book helps teenagers understand how to think clearly and biblically about supernatural events. Every day we hear of supernatural phenomenon—from Ouija boards to crop circles to psychics on TV—and it’s difficult for teens to know how to distinguish between genuine and counterfeit occurrences. Author Mark Matlock, who has conducted a research project with Barna Research on Teens and the Supernatural and is a member of the international community of illusionists, presents clear principles and intriguing examples that teach teens how to respond to the supernatural with wisdom, discernment, and without being duped. Using the Acts community at Berea as a model, Matlock identifies “thinking traps” that lead to deception, such as not balancing the mind and emotions, mixing truth with lies, and making false association. With clarity, he shows readers how to find Christ, and provides biblical answers to frequently asked questions about such things as Ouija boards, psychics, angels, and demons. Upside-down. Turned around. Sound like a typical day for you? invert books meet you where you are—in the twisted, flipped around places in your life. You’ve got so many relationships to focus on—God, others, and even yourself—invert books will help you figure out how to give yourself fully to all of them. invert tackles the difficult topics that are important to you—and will help you turn to focus on God more clearly.
