“Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls” (Jeremiah 6:16).

Join us for an alternative history of American religion along the strange side roads of belief and unbelief, beginning with the 19th-century hunger for contact with the dead. Fox Sisters enthusiasts, Kardec fanboys, and other curious persons will all find something to enjoy, and if you are a stranger to these figures, you shouldn’t be. The past is always with us, it’s not even past, and the same desire to consult what should not be consulted remains among many. Find out what happened, what’s still happening, and what’s wrong with mediums, Spiritualism, and Spiritism.

We look at the rise of modern devotion to Satan in the United States, explain how it’s related to biblical and historical examples of witchcraft, and separate fact from fiction in the tragedies the media came to call “the Satanic Panic.” The darkness is great, but Christ brings light and immortality to life. We finish with a discussion of how one can face darkness and the devil confidently in the power of Christ.
