The Dark Side of the Supernatural: What Is of God and What Isn't is a book written by Bill Myers and David Wimbish. It describes topics such as the occult, Satanism, Wicca and various supernatural phenomena from a Christian and Biblical point of view.[1][2] It was published in 2008, as a remake of the original 1999 book, The Dark Side of the Supernatural: Learning What Is of God...and What Is Not.[3] A revised and expanded edition was also made of this book in 2012.[4] The book has also been translated into Spanish.[5]

Contents

[edit] Topics

The topics explored in this book are "supernatural hunger", angels, demons, Satanism (reminiscent to Satanic Panic myths), UFOs, communicating with the dead (Spiritism), ghosts, near-death experiences (ironically negative despite views commonly held by most Christians), reincarnation, Wicca and witchcraft (as if they were the same thing), vampires (Twilight) and fantasy games (Dungeons and Dragons).

[edit] Doors

Doors?

The book commonly refers to the above topics as "doors", probably because the author also wrote the "Forbidden Doors" series.

[edit] Reception

The book was reviewed by columnist and author Gary Dale Cearley on bookpleasures.com, who noted its Evangelical Christian bias.[6][7]
