Mountain Stream Press The Light That Was Dark: From the New Age to Amazing Grace

The Light That Was Dark is a sober warning to the world and to the Church. Author Warren Smith learned some hard lessons as a spiritual seeker. Concerned that today's Church is being seduced by the same false teachings and the same false Christ that drew him into the New Age, Smith shares his story.

This account of Warren Smith's experiences in his pursuit of meaning and direction is an interesting story. I found it easy to read and at times very descriptive of the beauty of Northern California and even comical as he described events with the "Rolling Mystery School". There is valuable information about the subtle way the New Age philosophy is being introduced to a greatly unchurched population. On the other hand, I didn't find it to be as deep an expose' as I was seeking. I am glad the book is out there because we need to be aware of the "leaven" that is being introduced to our society with very little opposition. This book is helpful for that purpose. It is not a deep expose' of New Age deception but it is one man's experience and worth the read.

Great little book. If you ever wanted to peek into the occult to get an idea of how cunning the dark side is, this is the book for you. If you have any family or friends who are intonew age or emergent type churches it's a great tool to share with them.

This book described situations very similar to what I personally have experienced and it helped me to realize I am not crazy. Evil is real and only Jesus can save us!

A very excellent first hand account of Mr. Smith's(no relation) journey through the New Age movement and the attractions that it holds. It is not so much teaching about the New Age movement as much as it is a telling of his life as a spiritual seeker and the path's he followed. He also tells of the spiritual attacks that he and his wife were under due to opening themselves up to the other side of the spiritual realm, and their ultimate victory through the power of Jesus' name. This book is so well written that I read it in one sitting.
