Psychics, mediums, and ghosts have become a sensation in our culture today. As a result, there are many confusing and deceptive beliefs presented. Ron Rhodes, respected and popular biblical scholar, tackles the truth about ghosts and those who say they communicate with them and answers the questions:
- Do ghosts in any shape or form exist?
- Why is there a rise in psychic phenomena today?
- What do psychics believe about God, Jesus, and salvation?
- What is Satan's role with the paranormal?
- How can parents protect their family from the psychic trend?
This reader-friendly presentation of intriguing facts and biblical insights will help Christians know how to respond to this fascination with the ultimate truth.
Rhodes then discusses modern roots and causes of the contemporary move towards a theology of the spirits. A primer on types of psychic phenomena adds to readers understanding of relevant terms from more commonly known ones, such as occultism and divination, to lesser known such as psychometry, clairaudience and clairalience. Building on this background, Rhodes delves into the truth behind it all. Firmly founded on Bible passages, the whole subject area is brought under the research microscope, looking at the frauds and how they are perpetrated, as well as the gullibility of the audience, and manipulation by demons. An interesting section compares the psychic view and the Christian view of the Bible, Christ, God, humanity, and sin and salvation. A final chapter encourages Christians to look to the Lord and not to psychics, with a special warning against those claiming affiliation with Christianity.
The Truth Behind Ghosts, Mediums & Psychic Phenomena provides important reading for Christians, and makes a useful reference book for your Bible study bookshelf. A timely dissertation, this volume clearly and succinctly presents a large amount of important information. With its opening examples of people seeking psychic help, Rhodes will catch the interest of and help those who lean towards the occult. Author of the book Answering the Objections of Atheists, Agnostics, and Skeptics, and president of Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries, Ron Rhodes brings much expertise to this subject. He takes research very seriously, referring to it throughout this volume, and listing it in a closing section of text notes. Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com

MaryBuffalo, NYAge: 35-44Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Utterly RidiculousNovember 1, 2010MaryBuffalo, NYAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This book is so narrow minded, I'm amazed it got any positive reviews at all. Is the author really suggesting that when someone dies goes to heaven, that they cannot under any circumstances, return to earth & contact their loved ones?
I love how everything that doesn't jive with the authors own personal belief system is all put down to "demons" & how "Satan transforms himself into an angel of light". If that's the case how do we know it was really Jesus who spoke to Paul on the Road to Damacus? Maybe it was Satan deceiving Paul. The bottom link is: we have no idea what the afterlife is like, so to try and claim that demons are responsible for all the ghost sightings is utterly absurd and midaeval in it's thinking.
Kandi Sousa4 Stars Out Of 5June 1, 2010Kandi SousaAfter a loved one told me they believed they were psyphic I needed to read a book that could get me started in learning what the bible says about that kind of spiritual world. Mr Rhodes not only explains in detail what a psyphic world believes but gives many bible verses to back it up. I am more confident now, after reading this book, that I will be able to talk my loved one through to victory.
