with Peter Jones judgments But don t try to belittle his intelligence or his command of Peter Jones judgments But don t try to belittle his intelligence or his command of subject matter He has a PhD from Princeton Seminary he s been a theology porfessor for years and he has written a number of books on the topic He nows the arguments and counter arguments If you disagree just say so but don make these silly attacks on Dr Jones competence He s very sharpI found the book to be a good introduction to the topic I used it in an adult ce setting at our church where we spent 13 weeks with it Most folks appreciated the book and were challenged by it It helped us understand the appeal of a puzzling movement and how a neo pagan worldview hangs together coherentlyIt is concise rather than comprehensive It does not explore all the varieties of the New Age movement Its not intended to do that But its well worth the investment of a few hours of redaing time and a few dollarsI bought extra copies for friends and for the church library The value of this book is its description of Gnosticism and the detailed notes to each chapter The book is obviously an apologetic effort with the claim of relating Gnosticism to current New Ageism which is far from being clear The author s agenda is his own conservative theology which he parades to discount any one and any ideas he dislike.

Read the edition published in 1992 This is an excellent book on both the New Age Movement and the ancient Gnostic cult The author compares both movements and shows how the NAM is not unlike Gnosticism In many ways adherents of the NAM intentionally are reverting back to ancient Gnostic beliefs This book opened my eyes to the dangers of New Age Auarianism and how it is intentionally breaking down this country s Judeo Christian structure and re making it into a Satanic culture masked by political correctness and tolerance The only ualm I have with this book is that it is dated having been written in 1992 I would love to see a revised edition of this book This is a book that all professing Christians should read and certainly all ministers who profess to be Christian ministers Short simple and to the point This book packs a punch clearly warning in 1992 about the fast advancing re paganization of the WestIt does suffers some inaccuracies in detail as the author clearly does not now the New Age movement firsthand As a former New Ager and now a Christian convert I couldn t help noticing theseHowever these are uibbles

E New Age here Jones argues "THAT THE CURRENT NEW AGE MOVEMENT "the current New Age movement a resurrection of an ancient gnosticism Interesting connections to environmentalism and feminism A prophetic work Part of my studies for an RTS John Frame course Finished July 811 The first half of this book explains Gnosticism and its resurgence the second half focuses on Gnosticism s connection to New Age religion to alternative sexualities I found the book disappointing its explanation of Gnosticism is helpful but not very extensive o book waste no time showing the many similarities between ancient Gnosticism and the present day New Age Movement The concise book allows for a uick read and a wake up call that there is nothing new under the sun and biblical truth and obedience to God s truth are a must This book covers one of the important theological topics of our times that is largely ignored by the Church This is not an exhaustive academic work on the subject but rather an easy introduction that is concise and accessible to the general reader It is prophetic in it s call to turn from the idolatry of Gnosticism and is a critical read in that it uncovers the hidden presence of this ancient spirituality in modern culture I highly recommend A few of the reviews I read on were so annoying I thought I d chime in Sure if you are a Gno.
