Publisher's Description

The postmodern claim that secular science, materialism, and traditional Christianity are defunct has produced a worldview crisis for contemporary society. Into the void has stepped the New Age movement to offer a widely held and growing alternative. According to John Newport, the influence of New Age beliefs on our culture -- and even the dilution of Christianity itself -- demands that they be scrutinized in the light of the Bible.

In this urgently needed work, Newport delivers a comprehensive presentation of the New Age movement and the impact of its beliefs on contemporary culture and Christianity, while also offering an effective, biblical antidote for today's worldview crisis. Newport first surveys the historical development of the New Age worldview, from ancient times through important tendencies in nineteenth-century America to its recent Far Eastern influences. He then explores eleven key areas of the New Age worldview and contrasts each area of belief with the traditional biblical worldview.

Thoroughly discussed are New Age consciousness, spiritism and channeling, magic and witchcraft, neopaganism and Satanism, New Age ecology, the New Age movement's influence on personal healthcare, New Age teachings on business and prosperity consciousness, New Age perspectives on education and science, and much more. Throughout, Newport maintains a fair dialogue with his subject matter while showing why this dialogue ought to bring renewed commitment to what the traditional biblical worldview has to say about each of these areas.
