Presenting Christian apologetics from an apocalyptic perspective, The Supernatural Worldview offers a close and careful look at supernatural and paranormal phenomena through the lens of biblical scholarship.
The Supernatural Worldview is a book of Christian apologetics from an apocalyptic perspective. Many supernatural and paranormal phenomena are examined with biblical discernment and some of the usual evangelical answers are found wanting. Even so, cautiousness is encouraged and an ominous trumpet sounded in light of prophetic predictions.
If “paranormal” is really “the new normal,” as most leading scholars agree, then Christians face a dilemma in searching for the appropriate level of skepticism amid surprising evidences that support a Supernatural Worldview. While culture abounds with everything from ghosts to space aliens and all sorts of fantastic nonsense, foundational Christian tenets such as the Resurrection and fulfilled prophecy can be counted among the most incredible supernatural phenomena of all. The Supernatural Worldview encourages cautiousness among believers and sounds an ominous trumpet in light of prophetic predictions given more than 80 years ago by Chinese Christian and visionary author, Watchman Nee.

As America follows the world into a post-Christian era (or slides into the Great Apostasy, for those with an eye on Bible prophecy), we are not, contrary to the wishes of neo-atheists such as Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris, becoming a “rational”, atheistic culture, but transforming into one based on New Age and pagan beliefs.
The purpose of The Supernatural Worldview is to offer evidence for the existence of the supernatural realm and to demonstrate that even the scientific and academic communities are beginning to acknowledge it. Christians should be aware of this worldview shift and prepared to offer our friends, colleagues, and family members appropriate and accurate guidance on how to process a supernatural worldview based on the Guidebook to the Supernatural — the Bible.
