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
alwaysreadingAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent ResourceApril 6, 2017alwaysreadingAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In a world where ghosts, demons, the occult, and anything supernatural is becoming very attractive to know about, Ron Rhodes brings us a great little book that helps the reader understand the dangers of pursuing these things. He explains how Satan is using these things to distract people and to pull people into occult practices by making these things seem harmless. The author also pulls no punches in explaining what God says about these things in the bible.
I like the fact that the author points out how these things are not possible and how easily we can be deceived. This is a marvelous resource for anyone that wants to dispute these things. It is smaller book, only 144 pages, but it is easy read and contains a lot of scripture.
This is a book that I have recommended many times over the years and have loaned out to many people.

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.
