Investigates allegations made often in the Church in recent years that children are being drawn into harmful experimentation with the occult on an ever increasing scale. The book is divided into two parts, "Floundering in the Shadows" and "Into the Depths". The first section looks at seemingly innocuous entrances to the occult: astrology, tarot, ouija boards, spiritualism, transcendental meditation, the New Age, heavy metal and fantasy games. The second section considers magic "black" and "white", satanism and actual cases of ensnarement into harmful groups. The author draws strongly on American evidence and literature.From the Back Cover:
Evidence suggests that the Occult holds a growing fascination for young people. Horoscopes, tarot cards and horror movies have become child's play. There are dangerous undercurrents to the ouija board, fantasy games and black metal music. For those who paddle in the shadows, others are drawn out of their depth into the dark waters of seances and satanism.
Andrew Boyd's extensively researched book pulls together hundreds of examples, interviews and case studies. A special survey of more than 500 young people in British schools provides disturbing documentary evidence that Occult 'dabbling' is widespread. It all points to one inescapable conclusion – that when teenagers get involved in the Occult, the risks are all too real…
Expanding upon concerns expressed increasingly in the Church in Britain, 'Dangerous Obsessions' is a book that every parent and teach 'must' read.
