Escaping the Cauldron:Exposing Occult Influences in Everyday Life By Kristine McGuire

I received this book from Glass Road Media and Management for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Book Description:

An eight-year journey through the occult and into freedom
Though Kristine McGuire was raised in a Christian home, at an early age she became fascinated by the occult. At sleepovers she and her friends told fortunes and held séances. As a teenager she was convicted and put all games of mysticism aside. She went to a Christian college and married a Christian man. But despite her decision to follow God, a longing for the occult persisted, leading her to leave her church and husband and to fully embrace witchcraft.
Escaping the Cauldron takes you deep inside Kristine’s eight-year journey as a witch, medium, and ghost hunter. Part Bible study, part memoir, it exposes the subtle occult influences that affect us as it reveals how God mercifully delivered her out of the occult altogether and restored her faith and life in Christ.

My Thoughts:

Escaping the Cauldron by Kristine McGuire is a first hand account of Kristine's journey from Christianity to Occult and back again.  This story shows how we are exposed to the occult in our everyday lives.  Kristine McGuire gives an honest account of her time when she left Christ, dabbled in Witchcraft, then became a medium and ghost hunter and finally found her way back to Christ. I personally hadn't really heard about someone leaving Christianity and turning to the occult world so I was really interested in reading Kristine's story. I am so glad I did. I couldn't put the book down and enjoyed Kristine's style of writing. At the end of each chapter she poses 4-5 questions about the chapter for the readers.  As I read this book, it opened my eyes to how common place occult type influences are in our culture and how easy it is to fall prey to it.  I truly enjoyed this book and highly recommend this book to anyone who is a Christian.  It truly opened my eyes to many things. I look forward to reading more by Kristine McGuire.
