Kerby Anderson provides a conceptual
outline and Bible-based evaluation of The
New Age Movement while recognizing that "accurately
defining it is a formidable task" because it is "eclectic
and diverse." But Irving Hexham thinks evangelicals should pay
more attention to neopaganism because The
New Age is Over.
Doug Groothuis and Elliot Miller (both are authors of books about New Age thinking) share principles and suggestions for Evangelizing New Agers and for Discussing the Bible With New Agers; and Gordon Lewis explains why — even though talking with New Agers has caused fellow evangelicals to view him with suspicion — he does it anyway.
Does the New Physics
support New Age ideas? Since 1975, popular "mystical physics" books
have claimed that modern physics — especially quantum
mechanics — lends scientific support to a pantheistic
worldview of New Age beliefs about "creating your own reality." This
may seem plausible to some nonscientists who read the books,
and it appeals to their desire for personal power without accountability
to God, but there are scientific
reasons to reject these highly speculative claims.
