    I'm very excited! A book I wrote, published by Cook, is out! The Foreword is by Norman Geisler.

    It's mainly a guide for parents (or pastors and teachers as well) on the occult in our culture, how it's marketed and packaged to children and teens, and how to talk to children and teens about it. It also gives a bibilcal evaluation of the occult. The book is SpellBound: The Paranormal Seduction of Today's Kids. It covers "ghosts," astrology, psychics, talking to the dead, angels, magic (real magic) and spells, and more.

    This comes from my own experience in the occult/New Age and talking to youth groups, teens, and children about these areas, and from my research and experience in my ministry. I was asked to write this book as I was told there was not such a book for Christians.

    It's for sale on Amazon, CBD, and other sites. If you read it and like it, think about getting one for your church library! And please consider writing a review on Amazon if you read it. Thanks!

    If you search for it online, do a search under my name, as that will be easier: Marcia Montenegro

    I have a page on my site on it:
    http://cana.userworld.com/cana_SpellBound.htm

    After each chapter, I have tips for talking about that particular topic with your kids, if you so choose. You can adpat it to the ages of your children.

    I would appreciate prayer for this book as well. Thanks! :smilewinkgrin:

    What? You are friends with that liberal Arminian Heretic, Norman Geisler?:laugh:

    (J/K).

    Well, maybe not completely. Good luck with your new book.

    Thanks so much, Tim! I am very glad to hear this!

    Lifeway is carrying my book as well - I just found it on their website at www.lifewaystores.com
    Also, books-a-million.

    A Christian bookstore in Canada and one in Wales have already ordered copies of my book! I have prayer partners there who know the bookstore owners. Exciting! PTL!

    If you like the book, please write a customer review on Amazon - even a short one! It would really help. Thanks! :flower:

    Wow, I'll pick up a copy also. Looks like you may know a little somethin somethin on the subject.

    Marcia later was a member of this Board for four years, and Chairperson for three of those years. She was also active in the Metropolitan Atlanta Astrological Society, serving as president from 1989-1990. She was also Chairperson of the Curriculum Committee, as well as working in other areas of this organization.

    Thanks, LeBuick!

    Yep, been there, done that. I was Chairperson of the Atlanta Board of Astrology Examiners for 3 of the last 4 yrs. I was on the Board. The Board was created to test would-be astrologers in Atlanta who wanted to purchase a business license. It was required legally to have a license. The Board formulated and graded the exams. Each year I was on, only half passed (not because of me! The exam was hard - 7 hours). I took and passed this exam myself in 1983.

    I also taught astrology for over 5 yrs. But years before astrology, I was involved in Eastern beliefs and practices (Hindu beliefs, Tibetan Buddhism, Zen), contact with the supposed dead, study of numerology, etc.

    Just be glad I didn't touch all the religions I had in my "previous" lives (i.e., when I believed in reincarnation and had thoughts or "memories" of what I had believed before)!
