The Secret, a 216 page book, written by Rhonda Byrne was published in November, 2006. It turned into a publishing phenomenon and what “could be the fastest-selling book of its kind in the history of publishing” (Newsweek). Oprah Winfrey and Larry King dedicated entire shows to talking about it. As a result, it rocketed to the top of bestseller lists. But there are some serious problems with the book and video by the same title. The book claims to offer its readers the secret “to everything—the secret to unlimited joy, health, money, relationships, love, youth: everything you have ever wanted.” As Don Whitney points out, The Secret is nothing other than the “Name It and Claim It, Positive-Confession, Prosperity Theology (minus God and the Bible), built on a foundation of New Age self-deification.” Learn more about what’s wrong with The Secret in the article below.

NEW! THE NEW SPIRITUALITY
(DVD) by Charlie Campbell
Millions of people today say, “I’m not religious, but I am spiritual.” Many of them have left behind the religions they were raised in and adopted several new beliefs being promoted by Deepak Chopra, Oprah Winfrey, and others. Several of these beliefs come from what is known as “new age spirituality” or more recently, just “the new spirituality.” But are the beliefs really new? Will humans be reincarnated after death? Are we one with the universe? Are there no moral absolutes? Are all religions equal? Are humans divine? Charlie Campbell answers these questions and others in a visual presentation recorded in 2018 before a live church congregation in San Juan Capistrano, California. Length: 53 minutes.

Can we trust the Bible? Isn’t the Bible just “ancient ﬁction” written by fallible, perhaps even deceitful men? Haven’t books of the Bible been lost and even tampered with down through the centuries? Isn’t the Bible out-of- sync with scientiﬁc discoveries? What about the apparent contradictions in the Bible? What makes the Bible any different than the Hindu Vedas, Quran, or Book of Mormon? Charlie Campbell has been researching answers to questions like these for nearly twenty-five years. It was his initial research that led him to become a follower of Jesus in 1990. In Scrolls & Stones he shares some of the evidence that changed his mind back then but also fascinating new discoveries . . . all confirming the reliability of the Bible. You’ll learn about:

• Ancient Scrolls and Manuscripts
• Answers to Skeptics’ Objections and Questions
• Questions for further reflection and small group discussion

ABR hears this sad story over and over from heartbroken parents. Well, we would love to help prevent this from happening to your son or daughter.
