For all of you who love my Dad . . . we've had some wonderful news about The Kingdom of the Cults--41 years in print and still going strong. God is Good!

Congratulations too, to our friend George Mather and all the people involved with Encyclopedic Dictionary of Cults.

The October 1 issue of Library Journal includes a listing (p118) of the top 20 occult/parapsychology titles in demand by libraries and bookstores (from leading distributor Baker & Taylor) for the first half of 2006:

1) The Lightworker' s Way: Awakening Your Spiritual Power to Know and Heal, by Doreen L. Virtue [3]

2) The Devil Is a Gentleman: Exploring America's Religious Fringe, by J.C. Hallman [4]

3) Walter Martin's Kingdom of the Cults, by Walter Ralston Martin & Jill Martin Rische [5]

(I don't know how I made it on as an author, but my father would get a kick out of it.)

4) Wicca's Charm, by Catherine Edwards Sanders (AR 11:15) [6]

5) Drawing Down the Moon, by Margot Adler [7]

Two more...

12) Encyclopedic Dictionary of Cults, Sects, and World Religions, by "George Mather and others" [8]

19) Running Against the Wind: The Transformation of a New Age Medium and His Warning to the Church, by Brian Flynn [9]

(Quoted from Apologia Report)

It doesn't matter if the messenger is gone . . . the message is here and God blesses it. :)

Have a great weekend!

I just ordered copies of Kingdom of the Cults yesterday on Amazon to give to people who have made contributions recently as a thank you gift. It remains my favorite reference book!

I plan to get all of the leaders in the LTW apologetic street ministry locations a copy for Christmas. (

Your father was a great man and his book is a great help to me in explaining to my children the positions of Mormons, 7th day Adventists, Jehovah Witnesses, etc. Every youth pastor should have a copy and use it to equip young Christians. The book is one of my favorites!
