KIRKUS REVIEW

. . . but some may call it bunk. How to deal with the influx of super-natural data is revealed here with simplistic fervor: ""run or repent and be converted."" North is well versed in the literature of the occult; he can kick around Castaneda or discuss the findings of paranormal science (""demons are beginning to affect the experiments""). There are unexplained events; what he offers is an explanation of their appeal and the conversion of so many devotees: ""The heart of occultism is its commitment to a universe devoid of an ultimate sovereign."" A modern humanist society, with its belief in the supremacy of man and a goal of personal transcendence, is in accord with the premises of Satan. Although doomed to failure, the society ""can play havoc with Christian culture in the meantime."" The answer to this enigma? A program of Christian reconstruction. North also includes a heavy-handed parable (""There are not now, nor have there ever been, pure white crows"") and appends short, sympathetic writings by Rousas Rushdoony, David Ketchen, and Thomas Molnar. An unconvincing tract.
