The Deceived

If she had been someone great in a previous life, if she did hold some kind of secret powers, wasn’t it her responsibility to find out?

Book: The Deceived by Bill Myers, Tyndale House Publishers, 1994
Genre: Supernatural/Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 13-19
Subjects: Reincarnation, Hypnotism, dating relationships
Summary: Rebecca is excited – very excited! She has been attracted to Ryan since the first day she met him and now he has finally asked her out on a date! Her excitement quickly turns to uncertainty when Ryan takes her to hear a speaker on reincarnation. She shoves aside her doubts however, when this impressive man, reveals that she, Rebecca, was someone very important in her “past life” and has a great future ahead of her. The trouble is that the more convinced she becomes that this is great, the more convinced her family becomes that it is dangerous and wrong.
Notes: Sometimes a lie looks like the truth. And sometimes evil appears as something good.  What Rebecca hears sounds right and certainly seems harmless at first. Later on, it sounds even better than harmless, it sounds wonderful! It takes someone on the outside, someone who has studied the beliefs of Reincarnation carefully and knows how it contradicts the Bible to help Rebecca’s family see the truth. This is the 2nd book in the Forbidden Doors series, a series about the occult. The characters face many unique forms of the occult and learn about spiritual warfare.
Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Hebrews 9:27 – Man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.
