Item description for The Bible, the Supernatural, and the Jews by McCandlish Phillips...
Overview The Church, however, has often ignored or even denied the supernatural creating a void that is not beng filled by other sources. In their profound distrust of the supernatural, and in their insistance on stale rote Phillips warns houses of worship have won a reputation among the young as the dullest places in town so they go out and get their supernatural experiences wherever they can. Phillips also contends that, because of the unique role of the Jewish people according to God's promises special blessings are their divine heritage. Conversely, supernatural expirmentation may be more perilous for Jews than Gentiles.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Bible, the Supernatural, and the Jews?
Do not mistake antisemitism for knowledge Jan 29, 2006
This book is a thinly veiled sample of religious antisemitism in which the author demonstrates profound disdain for Judaism and either a willfull or foolish ignorance about it. His quotations from Hebrew scriptures are decontextualized and he demonstrates obvious ignorance of the original language.
While I and others offer this book for sale, I do so as a specimen of modern fundamentalist Christian Jew-hatred, masquerading as an attempt to help others reach salvation.
This book changed my life! Feb 8, 2004
I didn't get very far into this book, when I had to run out and buy a bible to see if it really said what this book said that it said. (It was too good to be true, and I couldn't believe that what Phillips said was really in the bible.) It was, and I couldn't get down on my knees fast enough to give my life to the Lord. That was nearly 30 years ago, and they have been the best 30 years of my life thanks to McCandlish for leading me to Salvation.
Many times I have thanked God for this book. It truly is an annointed work, and I am eternally grateful to McCandlish Phillips for allowing the Holy Spirit to flow through him to produce this wonderful work. When we get to Heaven and see the bible in its entirety, this will be the Book of McCandlish.
Excellent, essential read on the Bible, Jews & Supernatural! Feb 2, 2003
This is one of the best books that I have ever had the privilege of reading. The author is completely new to me, but the subjects of the Bible, the Supernatural & the Jews are not.
The author declares during the preface of this book that he had in fact initially sat down to diligently write another book on another subject, when suddenly & with no prior announcement, a theme was struck and words began to inexplicably flow with such a rapidity that three & a half days later, some 167 un-chaptered pages had piled up which form the basis of this book.
I appreciate that there will be many scoffers, and many who will undoubtedly approach this book with a degree of apathy or scepticism, but all I can say is that having studied the subjects concerned for many years, I fail to find any errors within what is written here on any of the subjects concerned or matters discussed.
The writer maintains that, above and beyond the natural realm, exists another realm peopled by unseen, intelligent beings. A supernatural domain of angels, demons exactly as outlined in the Bible, that are intensifying their involvement and contact with the human race in what the Bible describes as these `last days'.
A plethora of examples describes with incredible clarity and precision, this spiritual realm together with it's implications for each individual, the human race and the nations.
The book eloquently describes an affirmation of the Biblical and `spiritual reality' beyond `human reality'. Further to this the author describes the person of [evil], his reality, origin, intent, nature & agenda, together with a detailed explanation of the dangers associated with the occult & it's widespread disposition in so much of today's society and the world in general.
The book also examines the unique relationship of the Jewish people to Almighty God, a people who were chosen to be separate and distinct from other peoples and through whom God would provide blessing and the message of redemption to the whole world. The Jewish foundations of Christianity are also examined, as indeed are all the above matters in relation to their Biblical context.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I commend this even to the sceptics amongst you. It is so well written that no prior knowledge of these subjects is required.
Although sadly now out of print, this book is still readily available second hand. I shall continue to treasure my copy.
This book would be an essential addition to your library Nov 27, 1999
McCandlish Phillips was a New York Times reporter for 25 years.
"The Bible, the supernatural and the jews" tells of the world of spiritualism and the dangers of entering that dimension. To read such a book is like sitting down to eat a BIG steak dinner-you need to pace yourself. Don't worry though...Its very readable and interesting...But you'll soon discover that the book is full of surprises that you may not have considered before.
In each chapter the author will discuss such topics as demons and angels...descibing their role and function and how they interact with mankind. Bible verses are provided to support the authors views.
If you find reading theology books to be a little stifling, then this book will help you get off to a great start in the basics.
I personally have kept and treasured my copy (underlined and highlighted) for the past 24 years.
