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.
