Escaping the Cauldron by Kristine McGuire


 


A powerful , true story in a great bible study format. Easy to read, but you can't stop thinking about it even when you turn the last page.

MY REVIEW
If you've been following my book reviews for several years, thank you! You might remember I reviewed a book with this very title. Make no mistake. This is the same message, but so much more powerful than the first edition. Kristine McGuire uses personal experiences, and explains her thought processes for why she fell into the dark hole of the occult...and how God pulled her from that abyss.

She uses study questions and Bible passages to underline the message that the occult is nothing to dabble in or to embrace. I firmly believe that if she had not become a Christian as a child, she would never have been able to claw her way out of the hole. The Holy Spirit protected her, but God allowed her to see just how dangerous a game she was playing. God showed her that what she was searching for was a much deeper and closer walk with Himself rather than a cold and malicious demon.

We live in a world whose prince is the Prince of Darkness. He is the father of lies, and his job is to steal, kill and destroy. His minions are adept at finding our weaknesses. 

Kristine McGuire
McGuire walks you through the ever descending steps into occult practice that she took, always pointing out where she was wrong and what God says about each thing she did. She explains that as she became more deeply immersed in the occult, she became more accurate as a medium. The hiding of her occult books and tools, the secrecy of her practices, the secret worship of a demon disguised as a goddess tells a tale of shame and darkness. She dragged guilt around like a 500 pound ball and chain. She correctly states the Holy Spirit was convicting her of her sin, but Satan was using guilt as another tool to manipulate her. 

If you know someone who is fascinated by ghost hunting, or the occult and you are worried about them, I strongly recommend you read this book. It is well worth the money. If you have every wondered about the occult... if you want to know how Satan tempts a Christian into turning her back on God then you must read this book.

Five of five stars

BOOK BLURB


After 29 years in church, Kristine McGuire left to pursue her lifelong fascination with the occult. For the next eight years, she stayed in that world: as a witch, medium, and ghosthunter. 

But an encounter with a demon showed Kristine Who really holds the ultimate power. She returned to Christ. 

Kristine's story (releasing from Charisma House this month) will open your eyes to the occult influence in your everyday life - and equip you to address it.

Thank you so much, Gina, for being willing to read and review the new version of Escaping the Cauldron. I value your insights so much.Your input on the self published edition from 2010 had great impact on this new book, which helped create what it is today.
