Ghouls and ghosties, Druids and Samhain, trick or treat and jack o’ lanterns, witches and poltergeists – ever wonder where Halloween originated and if it is just fun or linked with Satan?

Min. and is versed in church history and the philosophy of Christian thought; Weldon sports two doctorates and majors in contemporary religious movements; and Burroughs has co-authored several books on modern Christian and world problems – the authors fully annotate there assertions. The footnotes provide many titles for further reading. Starting out with the many-faceted, worldwide history of Halloween, the book segues into a Christian and biblical analysis of Halloween. There’s an interesting look at all the spirits and spooks and a challenging look at honoring God. Subjects such as human sacrifice, media and big business involvement, and contemporary witchcraft are well examined. All statements are backed by scripture references and examples from germane texts.

As Christians move into a world some judge as post-Christian, we need to make hard decisions about how we will serve our Lord. Facts on Halloween presents a wide range of data for deciding about this particular arena. A book useful to all Christians, whether sitting in the congregation or working on the front lines, Facts on Halloween will appeal to middle school through adult readers. It will find use in group discussions, individual studies, as a reference book, and added to libraries. Approach it with an open mind. Full of facts about Halloween, it does not try to force you to any conclusion, but rather gives you the information you need to make an informed decision concerning this holiday. – Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Very informative, and it helped us to determine that we would stand our ground about what we felt the Lord was leading our family to do concerning Halloween.

    It made us take up the habit of praying for people who will be tragically effected by occultic rituals that are practiced on Halloween.

    Since Satan is such a copycat, it made us wonder if Halloween is his idea of a satanic day of atonement (at-one-ment) including an innocent sacrificial victim and increased oneness of the spirit-world with the natural world.

    I have found this book to be an awesome tool to express just why I, as a believer in the Word of God and Jesus Christ, do not participate in anything related to Halloween. It is very informative and written in a way that is easy to comprehend. It's a great book!
