Capturing The Pagan Mind is a book that is tune with the changing world we live in. Dr. Jones makes a strong case that the revival of the gnostic notion of the "Sacred Feminine" is on the rise again as it was during the time of the Roman Empire. Almost as if on cue, the Davinci Code by Dan Brown, was published at the same time as this book, vividly illustrating Dr. Jones' point. This book is highly recommended. Dr. Jones performs the essential dual role of historian and theologian to the benefit of his readers.

Format: Hardcover
"Capturing the Pagan Mind" has helped me to do just that. Peter Jones writes for his readers to become familiar with the pagan vision for the world. That vision is being known today throughout America and the global community.

The "Christian" era is coming to an end and a new global beast is being born. From Gnostic witches to Robert Funk and the Jesus Seminar... learn about how the true church needs to stand firm or be swept away by pagan religious syncretism.

Peter Jones documents some startling facts. He is able to give the reader a historical look into Paul's day and reveal that very same pattern taking place today. As Jones states in his book about Paul's day and our day, "...nothing has changed... paganism will always use its classic methods of political power. Christianity will always use only the power of the gospel." Great insights into the harsh reality of the pagan mind and the predictable future of the new global empire!

It's not time to join the cultural crusaders near you... it's time to proclaim the true Gospel of Jesus Christ and rely on the Gospel's power to change the hearts of men!

I also want to recommend Jesus and Empire: The Kingdom of God and the New World Disorder by Richard Horsley.

11 of 22 people found the following review helpful By R. A. M. Anderson on June 8, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This is an important book for all Christians to read! My only request is that Dr Jones should write a sequel which includes the goddess worship of the Roman Catholic Church, and, the emerging military and economic power of United Europe which is quickly exceeding that of the USA! United Europe clearly will become the next Fourth Kingdom of Daniel and will easily replace the USA. I had hoped that this most recent book of Dr Jones would have had at least some passing comments about the greatest goddess worship of all and which has existed in the Roman Catholic Church for hundreds of years, rather than just focussing on an apostasizing USA!
Nevertheless this is a must read!
