"Kristine McGuire’s testimony is a wake-up call to be aware of the continual influence of our culture to push us into consideration of the paranormal." —Rick Oppenhiezen, pastor, Grace Reformed Church

I have 30 years of experience in most of the areas Ms. McGuire describes,(excluding ghost hunting which always seemed unwise and unnecessary as those wish to speak to us usually don't have to be "hunted"), and another 20 exploring every form of Christianity before that, but I have to say this comes across to me as an effort to achieve fame by simply bashing other people's religions, or even bashing the more progressive views of Christian traditions that have been able to get past the Days of Salem Witch Trials and recognize that there are many different ways to view a single entity some call God and others call by other names.

Simply put, I am happy she found a happy path for her, but sad that she is so stuck in believing everything is good or bad that she trashes all the good she found outside of the narrow minded approach some fundamentalists have labeled Christianity. Jesus is my best friend and always will be, but I don't think he would approve of books designed to throw everything away that is not a part of the most extreme fundamentalist versions of worship that modern humans have put together and try to put forth as the one and only approach to God.

Wicca, for one example of a religion she trashes, at it's core, is basically an exploration of ways to reach God by those that don't find Christianity effective for them. Some do it well. Others don't. It basically draws almost directly from Traditional Hindu Sutras for it's philosophy which is very similar to the sermon on the mount. It's cosmology comes from the same source with minor alterations. The rituals tend to draw from pre-Christian Celtic and Saxon traditions.

Format: Paperback
I am an avid reader and I heard about this book through a friend. I especially enjoy reading books that demonstrate the redemption power of God and writers who can communicate their experiences and message in an articulate and tangible manner. Now I know that to say anything negative about such a book can come across callous because it would seem to be an attack on a prodigal who comes back to our Loving God. So, it is important for the readers to separate the sharing of scripture and testimony, from the craft of writing. In saying that, I always give God a BIG 5 stars because of His mercy to save us in any story, and His book, the Bible, a BIG 5 as well! But, since we are not reviewing the Bible, we must focus on the book, Escaping the Cauldron. That said I give this book 2 stars.

I felt the writing sounded pretentious, as in trying to persuade readers she is an expert in her field, repeatedly referencing former witch, medium, and ghost hunter as if trying to convince us and herself, by her spooky childhood and internet occult involvement.

The book shares no new knowledge and seems to contain information Kristine rehashed already on the market. There were many fragmented sentences and misused words, which concerns me being a product of a professional publishing house. The book lacked flow and was repetitious; bouncing her experiences through the three spiritual hats she wore. Even at the end of the book, it seemed the publishers were adding filler material after Chapter 28 to stretch the book beyond 200 pages.

I feel she has an interesting story that would have benefited from a well experience ghostwriter to bring it to life and make it a more enjoyable read.

I just received my book 2 days ago and pretty much read it in one sitting. I have been a regular visitor to Kristine's website for a couple of years now and had no idea how deeply she was into the occult. Obviously I knew she is a former witch and ghost hunter but finding out how extensive her involvement and, from the sound of things, affinity for it really surprised me. There are alot of wannabe mediums and ghost hunters out there but Kristine's talent for it was genuine. After reading her book I respect her even more for walking away from that lifestyle and having the courage to share her story and warning others about the dangers of occult involvment. I especially appreciate that she is open and honest about the struggles associated with breaking away from the lure of occult seduction and temptation.

All I can say is THANK YOU KRISTINE FOR WRITING THIS BOOK!

I thought this was a great book. It was honest, authentic, and Christ-centered. I enjoyed reading her testimony of being a former witch, and how she was rescued from it into her current new life. It was very inspiring to read. I "dabbled" in wicca myself in college, many years ago, so it was of particular interest to me. I admire the author for her courage, as I am sure her views are not at all popular with the wiccan community. However, I felt like she expressed her concern for them in a loving way. This is an area the Church needs to be aware of, so we can love Wiccans better, understand them, not act out of fear, but minister to them about the truth of Jesus Christ. I look forward to reading her book on spiritual warfare.
