More About the Author

Born in 1926, Dave enjoyed the advantages of a godly upbringing, and placed his trust in Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and Lord in his early teens.

He received a degree in mathematics from U.C.L.A. Marriage to his wife, Ruth, was followed by the birth of four children, a career as CPA/management consultant and, later, the management of several corporations. Along with church-related activities, Dave initiated and became involved in numerous campus ministries and meetings in his home, with a special outreach to Jewish young people and foreign students.

Since 1973 Dave's desire for fulltime ministry has found fulfillment through authorship of books dealing with the incursion, into Western culture and the church itself, of Eastern, psychological and selfist philosophies, ecumenism, and other unbiblical teachings. Concern over Islamic politics and religion are reflected in current articles, lectures and interviews.

At least 4 million copies of his books have been sold and have been translated into more than 50 languages. They include: The Cult Explosion, The God Makers, The New Spirituality, The Seduction of Christianity, Global Peace and the Rise of Antichrist, Occult Invasion, A Cup of Trembling, In Defense of the Faith, An Urgent Call to a Serious Faith , What Love Is This?, Countdown to the Second Coming, Seeking and Finding God, Honest Doubts, Judgment Day! Islam, Israel, and the Nations, Yoga and the Body of Christ, and his latest book, Cosmos, Creator and Human Destiny.

His video, Israel, Islam & Armageddon has become a tremendous tool for churches and others interested in helping spread the truth about events prior to and since the attack on the World Trade Center.

Dave's impeccable research and recognized scholarship are based on in depth studies of original documents and publications, interviews with key experts from around the world, and extensive travel--including to South America, Australia, Europe and throughout the Middle East.

Friday, April 5, 2013, Dave Hunt drew his final breath and entered into the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His beloved wife Ruth was at his side.

Format: Paperback
Dave Hunt and T.A. McMahon operate an "anti-cult"/apologetics ministry called The Berean Call; they (particularly Hunt) have written many other books, such as Understanding the New Age Movement (Harvest Pocket Books), The New Spirituality, Peace, Prosperity, and the Coming Holocaust: The New Age Movement in Prophecy (Dave Hunt Classics), The Seduction of Christianity: Spiritual Discernment in the Last Days, Occult Invasion: The Subtle Seduction of the World and Church, Beyond Seduction: A Return to Biblical Christianity, Yoga and the Body of Christ: What Position Should Christians Hold?, etc.

They write in the first chapter of this 1988 book, "The tale of the sorcerer's apprentice makes a sobering and instructive point: We too can lose control in a naive attempt to manipulate magical powers.

Or this one for that matter! lol. I made a scathing review, and 3 starred it. So I've come back, true to form, gave it 2 more stars, after my first review I thought "there is no way I'll feel differently about this book", daring myself really. Well as I went on, I'm about 70 pages shy of finishing this interesting read, and lo and behold, I understand where they're coming from. In a funny way it was like a personal exorcism of my "spiritual" beliefs, and once this book makes you agree with them due to sound logic, it's hard not to re-evaluate what all that new age crap means. I've seen red flags in docs on youtube. I've even heard/seen writings on the whole "lucifer is good, GOD is bad" thing, which I've read is a masonic thing as well. I kept thinking in anger "why all the evil everywhere?" where's the good, the GOD, and the love as that 70's song asks? My personal theory is that this plane of existence is like a testing ground, and it's owned by the darker forces of the universe/dimensions, call them what you will. They run the show here and once we pass on, we are able to get back in touch with lighter angelic forces (yes GOD, and all that). To me that would explain the "question of evil", which is so unbalanced on earth that it is easy to question the whereabouts of a benevolent force, which I have and do often when I see the horrible stuff that goes on everywhere. Back to the point, this is an interesting book. In my opinion, it's a much better read if you've read your share of new age/occult/spiritual literature, you will know where they're coming from much more. Too bad no one will read this review, but atleast I wrote it, lol.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although this book is far more academic than most of the books I've read on the New Age Movement, I have found it to be the most informative. The authors reveal a connection between the fields of psychology/psychiatry and the New Age Movement that I didn't know existed. I found the sections that discuss Freud and Jung to be particularly surprising; I had no idea that these men were so greatly influenced by Eastern mysticism, spirit guides, etc. This book has changed the way I view these fields now, and I have a better understanding of how the New Age Movement has become so mainstream.
