Escaping the Cauldron by Kristine McGuire
The book was so interesting to me. I literally could not put it down! The author shows the reader through her book that she intensely struggled with Christianity vs. the occult. The author takes the reader into a personal journey that exposes real, raw and candid struggles that the author had in her life, and how she was drawn into occult practices, i.e. witchcraft, acting as a medium and ghost hunting, among other activities. Ms. McGuire shows the redeeming nature of Jesus, and how she eventually puts off these activities and embraces her Christian roots, and has peace and is now an on fire Jesus follower. Each chapter is thought provoking, and has points at the end for personal reflection or discussion if this book is used as a group study piece. It is a little scary to read, as her spiritual (demonic) accounts are truthful, but it is not so scary that a teenager could not read it (but not a child!). I was truly amazed at this story and how it ended, and that the author was trying to show the reader the truth, but not in a prideful way. She matter -of- factly states what happened to her, and presents her views with authority. She weaves bible scriptures throughout the book to lead the reader to search for the truth behind her statements, which is very helpful. Trust me - you will want to read this book, it is interesting, and eye opening! The opinions I have expressed are my own.
