Overview

Philosopher and apologist Douglas Groothuis has spoken and written extensively on New Age movements—confronting them with the truth and pertinence of Christianity. This collection gathers three books addressing the New Age movements that influence today’s society and churches.

Groothuis offers a thoughtful critique of New Age ideology, with insights into specific situations and practical considerations. Across these texts, Groothuis points readers to the Bible and historic Christian teaching, confronting New Age claims with Scripture, and equipping Christians with a better understanding of the New Age.

In Confronting the New Age, Groothuis discusses how to identify New Age influences in business, cultural, and educational spheres, and how to witness to New Age adherents. Deceived by the Light responds to popular near-death accounts such as Embraced by the Light and offers guidance on what to make of speculation about the afterlife—affirming that the Bible alone reveals all we need to know about life, death, and eternity. And finally in Jesus in an Age of Controversy, Groothuis offers an accessible study of the questionable foundations and faulty conclusions of New Age views on Jesus.

Douglas Groothuis, a well-known speaker and writer on the New Age movement, calls Christians to not only understand the New Age movement and its influence, but also to stem the tide of this growing religious movement. Groothuis offers not only a better understanding of the New Age, but also practical advice and suggestions for confronting it in everyday life.

He equips readers to witness to New Age adherents, identify New Age influences in business seminars, expose New Age curriculum in public schools, as well as to discern New Age influences in pop psychology, biofeedback therapy, and visualization.

This book is urgently needed.

Can we really know what waits for us in the afterlife? What about near-death testimonies that speak of visits to heaven or hell? In Deceived by the Light, Doug Groothuis, an expert on new religious movements, addresses specifically Betty Eadie’s testimony in her bestseller Embraced by the Light, where she claims she met and conversed with the Lord Jesus Christ and received amazing revelations about spiritual progression, death, and the afterlife. Groothuis engages with Eadie’s testimony and similar ones, clearly addressing common fears and questions about death and what comes after as he takes readers to the clear teaching of Scripture—affirming that the Bible alone reveals all we need to know about life, death, and eternity.

Jesus in an Age of Controversy

  • Author: Douglas Groothuis
  • Publisher: Wipf & Stock
  • Publication Date: 2002
  • Pages: 374

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Who is this man Jesus? An ordinary man about whom the early Christians made up extraordinary stories? A spiritual guru who tapped into a cosmic consciousness that we can all aspire to? Or is he the unique Son of God? Best-selling books challenge us to rethink our ideas about Jesus. The “Jesus Seminar” makes headlines with its systematic attempts to undermine the accuracy of the Gospel accounts.

Douglas Groothuis responds to this confusion. Arguing that New Age teachings about Jesus have found their way into many pulpits, he offers an accessible study of the questionable foundations and faulty conclusions of these new views. Jesus in an Age of Controversy provides historical and logical evidence that confirms biblical teachings about Jesus, equipping readers to defend the Christian faith against attack, help those struggling with questions and doubts, and be encouraged with the overwhelming weight of evidence that confirms that Jesus is the only Savior and Lord.
