Gospel Magic is the use of conjuring tricks to explain the Bible. It gives you a chance to communicate with people who would not listen to any other kind of Bible study, it gets you in doors where could not other wise go. Used correctly it persuades to follow Jesus. I know this from my experience
Duane Laflin has a lot more experience than I do. He has met for more people doing this craft than I have, and he describes the history of the craft going back to 1907 (when I did not know it went to before 1970). He has compiled a book on the best methods of performance, some of his favorite routines, and a aforementioned history.
He uses his experience, to describe the craft of creating a person, doing a seamless performance, and dealing with the sensitivities and concerns of church people while still gaining the interest of non-Christians. If you know some magic tricks and you would really like to communicate the Gospel using them, this book is for you. The study of persona building a performance is very valuable at whatever level you are performing. If you do not know any tricks yet, you would find this book very frustrating. It does not contain an introduction to magic, although it may contain enough about the secrets of tricks to ruin your fun when you are watching a magic show.
It also may be very little use to secular magicians who have no intention of ever performing a Gospel magic show. Most of the material may not apply to you.
For the correct readers, however, this book is invaluable. There is nothing else like it on the market.
