|Quick Intro to the Occult Jan 31, 2008|
|Rev. Dr. Kurt Koch was trying to balance variety, helpful advice and book size. He did a good job. A book with more variety, more scripture and advice would be twice as big and be priced out of the market.|
When I handed it out at church, some people looked at the size of it and turned it down on that basis. Those that read it, though, were fascinated and awed.
|The most Disorganized, biased book I've ever read Nov 20, 2007|
|I anticipated receiving a description of items considered "cult" in order to clarify some very specific items I had questions about.|
What I received is a disorganized bunch of mush from an angry, legalistic author who has no tolerance for any idea other than his own. There were many mispelled words, and each chapter had numerous mentions of people he had counseled; many "I simply could not help."
Apparently this author considers himself a Christian counselor, who does not appear to believe God can work miracles in today's world. The description of each item is not fully explained: rather, he spends a great deal of time discrediting numerous subjects by "my experience in counseling." There is little mention of sources other than "During my travels," "Books I've read" etc. His experiences are full of "when I was in Africa I encountered such and such," but no specifics, nor any material that could help one validate his claims.
This book would only appeal to the very legalistic Christian, and is not worth a penny if you are looking for reference material.
|About As Thorough A Source You'll Find On The Subject May 16, 2007|
|A reference source for years, reminds one of the many snares Satan has set for us. How often we are casually asked the question, "what sign are you?" Even by fellow Christians ignorant of the dangers of Astrology. And with the recent rise in popularity of Yoga, even at many local health clubs, this book is right on target in its warnings. How many seemingly harmless practices believers fall into, not knowing the consequences can be harsh. Well needed in this age of growing deceptions|
|Christians, Watch in all things. Mar 10, 2007|
|The reviewer who stated that this book is a hard read is in error. I am a college graduate, but certainly I am not so smart that I cannot appreciate a less than academic treatment of a subject matter. Koch admits from the outset that he intentionally wrote this book in a non-scientific fashion so as to make it readable for academic and non-academic types. That said, the book is an excellent primer for those who are new to cults and the occult. Unless you are a practicing occultist yourself, there will be something in this book that you didn't know. I found Koch's coverage of occult bondage among Christians, especially among pastors and ministers, to be especially revealing. It certainly explains many things that I have witnessed over the years. That I have never heard the subject of the Satanic and occult danger to Christianity preached from any pulpit in the world speaks volumes in and of itself. All Christians should have this book in their library.|
|Buyer beware Nov 24, 2002|
|This is the only book I have ever given a bad rating. This book not only has useless information on the occult but has a negative and unappealing tone throughout the reading. Although I can agree to disagree with some of the thing he states about the Charasmatic movement, this book is poorly organized and is a hard real. Buyer beware!|
