5.0 out of 5 stars A Challenge to the Christian Community
Dave Hunt addresses the phenomenon sweeping the church which is encompassed by New Age thought and the seduction of motivation/success teachers such as Napoleon Hill. Using well-grounded biblical principles he reduces the health/wealth/prosperity gospel to what it is - a sham, and a shamanistic conspiracy to seduce believers into accepting the AntiChrist system.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not the best
This book is a very good overview, although it is a little dated. That's why I'm giving it three stars. Dave Hunt's updated book is called "Occult Invasion" and is a better purchase.
As for the people who do not want to accept what is written in these books, I offer the advice to err on the safe side. What's the point in splitting hairs? Call it what you will, and...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Challenge to the Christian Community, 10 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Seduction of Christianity: Spiritual Discernment in the Last Days (Paperback)
Dave Hunt addresses the phenomenon sweeping the church which is encompassed by New Age thought and the seduction of motivation/success teachers such as Napoleon Hill. Using well-grounded biblical principles he reduces the health/wealth/prosperity gospel to what it is - a sham, and a shamanistic conspiracy to seduce believers into accepting the AntiChrist system. Of course, those easily offended at this critique may be put off, but if readers approach this with an open-mind, I believe the Spirit of God will reach them appropriately, and in light of the Word of God. After all, our experiences should be measured by the standard of the Word of God, as well as our reading. Like the Bereans, we should check it, to be sure it lines up with the pure, unadulterated scriptures. This book was a blessing, and I plan to read and re-read it. I would suggest the same to anyone who not only is interested in what is taking place in l999 modern churches, but anyone who is taking the claims of success gurus and disciples of Napoleon Hill. As will be revealed, Hill's philosophies not only came from questionable sources, but were totally foreign to the Truth of Scripture. A gem of a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exemplary treatise on modern Christian discernment!, 31 Mar 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: The Seduction of Christianity: Spiritual Discernment in the Last Days (Paperback)
In the Olivet Discourse, when Jesus' disciples asked Him what would be the signs of the end of the world and of His return, His first response was, "See to it that no man deceives you!" Many books over recent years have chronicled the rise of natural disasters, one-world government preparation, and the coming "Mark of the Beast", but few if any have addressed the very first sign that Jesus said would mark the nearness of his return: unprecedented spiritual deception!

Hunt and McMahon expose ancient witchcraft and sorcery as they are repackaged in modern, pseudo-scientific terminology and passed off to undiscerning Christians as the latest in "self-help" or "personal development" techniques.

The authors place all the modern spiritual deception in the context of Bible prophecy and how it will play into the hands of the coming Antichrist, the one-world government, and the apostasy of the Christian church.

5.0 out of 5 stars Discernment is called for., 7 Jan 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Seduction of Christianity: Spiritual Discernment in the Last Days (Paperback)
I find it fascinating to read how people would rather follow the traditions of men, than to follow the the Lord's word. This book just proves it. Christianity isn't really supposed to be "scollarly" in human terms, but instead focus on how our Lord wants us to live. When we turn away from God's word, we become vulnerable to Demons.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are a sincere seeker of the truth, read, yet prepare to be challenged, 22 Dec 2008

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Seduction of Christianity: Spiritual Discernment in the Last Days (Paperback)
An issue may be challenging, but just because the topic evokes uncomfortable feelings this does not make it or its author bad: we live in a selfish, consumerist age in which we are taught to have an opinion for the sake of it, to be lead by our feelings, blind ourselves to the possibility that there is such a thing as absolute truth and to disregard the truth. In fact that uncomfortable feeling is the initial stage and part of the blessing of being won away from affilation to dangerous concepts that threaten our characters and integrity. The author is just the messenger, so lets not attack him for addressing challenging subjects that are important to safegurading the power of our life changing witness. Very good book: a watchman has blown the trumpet. May we overcome our personal preferences and feelings where they dont help us, may those who are sincere seekers of the Truth take heed. May God bless Dave Hunt.

Another Hunt classic, proven to be 100 per cent correct. We can see what he warned about has developed in the church and has taken root. Apostasy is overtaking the church.

2.0 out of 5 stars Discernment needed, 22 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Seduction of Christianity: Spiritual Discernment in the Last Days (Paperback)
The first time I read this book I was reading as an Arminian Dispensationalist. Almost a year and a half later I'm Calvinistic and Post-millennial. Hunt's book is good in one way and bad in another. It's good because he encourages discerning New Age techniques that are infiltrating the Christian Church. It's bad because he poses it within the context of an erroneous soteriology (doctrine of salvation) and eschatology (doctrine of "last things"). Hunt's prescription for the problem: throw up the white flag in surrender in this inevitable apostasy and wait for Jesus to save us in the Rapture. A better prescription is found in the book "The Reduction of Christianity: A Biblical Response to Dave Hunt" by Gary Demar.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Kind of Illogical Attack Has to Stop!!!, 26 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Seduction of Christianity: Spiritual Discernment in the Last Days (Paperback)
Mr. Hunt in this and in his sequel has managed to bring the Church to yet another low. These books are not well thought through. The scholarship is questionable. The quotes are generally out of context or twisted. The theology is laughable. There is nothing to commend this book with.
