Hunnemann's investigation led him to reading and analyzing popular books by people who claim they can talk to ghosts, including Mary Ann Winkowski, to interviewing religious demonologists who seek to exorcise demons, and to watching numerous episodes of paranormal investigation programs and popular fictional shows such as "Ghost Whisperer" to understand popular--and misguided--beliefs about ghosts. Mark even relates that he has had his own frightening encounters with the supernatural world. This array of research led him to some strong conclusions.
Far beyond simply compiling evidence of the supernatural, Hunnemann applied common sense and logic, and most importantly, his own Christian beliefs as sifted through the Bible to answer the hard questions about whether ghosts exist, and if so, why. Hunnemann examines most significantly the biblical worldview of life, man's place in the world, and what kind of God would permit people--even babies--to become ghosts. His well-reasoned analysis is centered upon answering seven biblical worldview questions: 1) What is the Nature of God? 2) What is Your Purpose in Life? 3) What is the Nature of Reality? 4) What is the Nature of History? 5) What is the Basis for Morality? 6) What are the Essential Traits of Being Human? and 7) What Happens to Us After We Die?Read more ›
This is not one of those "bad dog, bad bad dog," kind of books that seeks to tickle our curiosity and arouse our interest in the subject. This is a bold and well stated warning, to anyone who will read it, that there is grave (no pun) danger in playing with ghosts. But we're too sophisticated to worry about ghosts - right? Demons are entities of fiction or long ago - certainly nothing to worry about in these heady days of facebook and instant messaging not to mention space travel and cloning.
Mark's book exposes our "itching ears" and how easily we're lulled into allowing into our homes - even our children's bedrooms - the seeds of evil. How far is it from entertaining demons to living out their doctrine? Mark lays out the temptations and dangers of this latest fad. You may say, "
At least it's not senseless violence or pornography," and you'd be right. It is however the distraction of those (violence and pornography) that make it so easy for us to poo-poo the very idea of demonic stealth attacks.
Well written and biblically sound this work is a must for every believer - especially pastors and parents. Ignore it at not only your peril but that of those for whom you are responsible.
Mostly I bought this book for my brother who considers himself a "ghost investigator". I doubt that he will be convinced by the Biblical arguments though.
First, this work is not for the feeble of mind. Mark is an excellent writer with a command of logic and reasoning, which he systematically unfolds to his audience. One must have the intelligence to follow logic and be able to journey with Mark as he builds a solid foundation of truth regarding these entities we call ghosts. Do not think that he just tells "war stories" about paranormal activities leaving the reader with a sugary plate of indecisiveness regarding truth. No, this book is far from that.
Truly, the title tells it all, Mark Hunnemann takes us behind the Biblical scene, peering out at the paranormal through the eyes of God. It is all about a Biblical worldview, but unlike other authors that simply state that fact, Mark actually explains what having that worldview actually means to his readers. As he states, "...Ghosts have become so wildly popular in the last five years or so, and why this makes a Biblical worldview analysis so desperately needed ... " The author thoroughly stacks his arguments for having the correct worldview in order to understand ghosts and paranormal activity.
Using a set of various questions, the author proceeds to unravel the mysteries of critical thinking and proper analysis of worldview concepts.Read more ›
