By Steven H Propp - Published on
Format: Paperback
At the time this book was published in 1992, David Burnett was a Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute, as well as the author of Spirit of Buddhism, The: A Christian Perspective on Buddhist Thought, Dawning of the Pagan Moon, World of the Spirits: A Christian Perspective on Traditional and Folk Religions, Spirit of Hinduism, The: A Christian Perspective on Hindu Life and Thought, etc.

Here are some quotations from the book:

"It was one of (H.P. Blavatsky's) successors, Alice Bailey (1880-1949) who is credited with having coined the phrase 'New Age,' which recurs throughout her writings." (Pg. 169)
"I would personally agree with both Chandler and Groothuis and consider the New Age movement a paradigm shift resulting from a synthesis of themes... many of (Hinduism's) themes have been adopted into what has been called the New Age Movement. During this process there has been a syncretization of the themes with those of the secular worldview. Some Hindu themes have been accepted almost in total, while some secular themes have been only slightly modified." (Pg. 184)
"Can Christians from different cultures reach across those cultural barriers and take hold of the hand of another and say, 'My brother'? Can we recognize the richness of our own cultural heritages and see these transformed under the enabling of the Holy Spirit?" (Pg. 251)
