Publisher's Description

CASUAL OCCULTISM PERMEATES YOUTH CULTURE

DO YOU SUPPOSE THAT YOUR CHILD COULD EMBRACE PAGAN SPIRITUALLY?

"NO, I REALLY DON'T THINK SO. WHY DID YOU ASK?"

Think again, cautions Linda Harvey in her book, Not My Child: Contemporary Paganism & New Spirituality. Casual occultism permeates youth culture, children's media, and classroom lessons. Kids are under spiritual assault even in some trendy youth groups. Harvey points out how current social issues, the Internet, television, movies, and even feminism are contributing to the problem.

What's the significance of the sudden appeal of teen paganism, even witchcraft? Is fortune-telling and spell-casting just a new version of teen rebellion or amore sinister development? The author compares the modern version of ancient practices-"neo--paganism"-to core biblical principles and exposes the flaws, including the gender and sexuality risks inherent in these radical new beliefs.

The fingerprints of evil are all over what appears to be innocent packaging of youth activities and entertainment. But how can a parent keep from going crazy and saying "no" to everything?

The whens, wheres, and hows are covered with tips and encouragement for discerning families who want to understand how this "pop spirituality" differs from authentic Christian doctrine. The special role of a father is highlighted.

CONTENTS INCLUDE:

1.- Laying the Foundation to Build Young Pagans

2.- Do What You Will: The Core Tenets of the New Spirituality

3.- The Spiritual Consequences of Paganism

4.- Outreach: How, Why, and Where paganism Connects with Kids.

5.- The Dangers of Living a Pagan Lifestyle

6.- Managing Pandora: What Can Parents Do?

Publisher's Description:

Is your child about to embrace pagan spirituality? No? Think again, cautions Linda Harvey in Not My Child: Contemporary Paganism & New Spirituality. Casual occultism permeates youth culture, children's media, and classroom lessons. Kids are under spiritual assault even in some trendy youth groups. Discerning families want to understand how this "pop spirituality" differs from authentic Christian doctrine. Harvey points out how feminism, current social issues, and compromised churches are contributing to the problem.

What's the significance of the sudden appeal of teen paganism, even witchcraft? Is fortune-telling and spell-casting just a new version of teen rebellion or a more sinister development? The author compares the modern version of ancient practices—"neopaganism" — to core biblical principles and exposes the flaws, including the gender and sexuality risks inherent in these radical new beliefs.

The fingerprints of evil are all over what appears to be innocent packaging of youth activities and entertainment. But how can a parent keep from going crazy and saying "no" to everything? Certain children's publishers and themes, and even various television characters are more questionable than others. The whens, wheres and hows are covered with tips and encouragement for discerning families. The special role of a father is highlighted.

Editorial Reviews

With a provocative premise, insightful analysis and a witty writing style, Harvey's book is an all-hands-on deck broadside against the satanic strategy to corrupt our children. Paganism might seem like a joke to some, but any Christian who reads this book will discover that it's no laughing matter to God.

      - ED VITAGLIANO, new editor for the American Family Association Journal and minister for twenty-five years


If you want to maintain a false sense of down-home, All-American, optimistic tranquility, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! If you do, you will not put it down, and you will not gets its warning out of your head. Linda Harvey writes both with great intelligence and down-to-earth vivid readability showing how pagan chicken soup for the soul is being served up in massive doses to our rising generations of unsuspecting kids, while most parents look on in blissful ignorance. If you want to understand how modern culture is being profoundly undermined by an ideology as old as the hills but made to look like the latest slick video game, YOU MUST BUY THIS BOOK!

Peter Jones, PhD, Director, Christian Witness to a Pagan Planet, Scholar-in-Residence and Adjunct Professor, Westminster in California


Linda Harvey's Not My Child warns us that kids without the built-in "nonsense detector" of traditional faith are being seduced by a thriving occult, often through the Internet. When Christianity leaves the scene or becomes lukewarm, there is no neutral zone. Witches, warlocks and other spiritual counterfeits quickly move in to slake the God-given thirst for meaning beyond the material present. And they often bring a sexual agenda with them. In this well-written book, Mrs.Harvey rips the lid off this profoundly dangerous pagan trend and tells what parents need to do to protect their kids.

Robert Knight, director of Culture and Media Institute, a division of the Media Research Center
