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
- 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
