This book came in to my hands at a very critical time when I was struggling with some unanswered questions about the emerging church. The author helped to trace these "roots" back to the origins of ancient mystery religions and connect the dots to current trends we are seeing all around us. I gave a copy to both my pastors!

This book is a must read for each and every Christian, especially those in ministry! I am more aware now of all the New Age and Mystical influence on nearly everything in our culture. "And they shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the unholy, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean." Ezekiel 44:23

In April of this year I heard about this new spirituality that is entering the churches. It's the emergent church movement. I began my search for what it was all about by reading A Time of Departing. This book is exceptionally well-documented. It's a must read for anyone who wants to keep from being deceived in these last days. There are many well-known religious leaders and authors who are involved. Many of their beliefs are heresy. We need to know who they are and what they really believe...not what we assume they believe just because we have heard their names connected with Christianty for a number of years. The New Age Movement has re-packaged itself...and this is it. My eyes have been opened in a dramatic way because of this book. After reading this one, you might also consider reading Faith Undone by Roger Oakland. Both excellent books.

Ray Yungen does an excellent job of warning the Church about the New Age and mystical practices that are currently being promoted by some "evangelical" Christian leaders today. This book calls us to decide if we will come to God in the way that He has provided, that is through His Word, or will we seek to know Him in a deeper way by using unscriptural methods, i.e. Contemplative prayer, yoga, breath prayers, practicing the silence, etc. The author is not a mean-spirited fanatic, but rather clearly shows how many Christians are being deceived by those who are promoting mysticism as a valid way to experience God.
