Publishers Description "Whether or not you believe that psychics are real is not the point of this book," writes Clifton. "Obviously there is ongoing appeal for such things, or God's Word would not keep warning against them. The point of my book is to show triumph over sin and darkness." The former professional psychic, then known as Sandra McNeil, reveals the true nature of New Age thought and practices and how God opened her eyes to deception and set her free. She presents practical insight for tactful dialogue with individuals caught in the web of such beliefs, as well as tips for intercessory prayer. The inclusion of prayer strategies and discussion questions makes "From New Age to New Life" both theological and practical. With great experience as an author and editor, as well as a doctorate of ministry from Oral Roberts University, Clifton does an excellent job of telling her story in five significant parts: "My Journey," "Reflections," "What Can Be Done?" "Prayer Strategies," and "Talking It Over." Like sharing snapshots from a trip, she also includes distinct scenes from her life. Each is followed by reflection, in which she looks back on her experiences or thoughts with theological and biblical perspectives. In the process, she addresses how to help lost people out of the occult and New Age. Readers of this wonderfully written book will come away feeling warm inside knowing good still comes out on top.

An Amazing Story of Deliverance from Darkness Dec 29, 2007
Dr. Sandra Clifton, a formerly well known TV psychic shares her spiritual journey in her new book "From New Age to New Life." She writes from her own experiences and clearly shows the deception, nature, and thought behind New Age practices. She also offers practical insights for sensitive ways to dialogue and pray for those entangled in New Age beliefs.
Sandra tells her story, relating the seeds of the gospel being planted by her grandfather, and the importance of Christian heritage in her spiritual journey. Devastated by a failed marriage, Sandra, alone in Los Angeles sought counseling from a professional therapist. One session opened the door to participating in lab experimentation in mind power or psychic abilities, ESP, talk shows, and a TV contract.
As Sandra delved deeper into the darkness of the occult and New Age phenomena she continued to find success, became recognized as a popular speaker at conference and conventions on the power and control that comes through using the power of the mind. On one occasion she had a Damascus Road experience as the Lord made known His claim on her life. This experience was followed by a lonely, hard, and important training program for Sandra and her husband Terry.
The book is designed to provide pastors and teachers with a deeper understanding, to provide all believers an evangelistic tool, specifically for addressing the needs of those ensnared in the occult/New Age movement.
I personally appreciated the various emphases within each chapter which provided me with opportunities for "Reflection," to consider "What Can Be Done," and to apply suggested prayer strategies. The final chapter accentuates the importance of intercessory prayer and provides suggested prayers for family members, spouses, friends, and other special needs.
The book provides material for the lay person in ministering to loved ones, friends, and associates involved in the occult/New Age. It provides help for pastors for counseling those with New Age and occult backgrounds. There is material within the book designed with questions for the church leader to use in study groups relating to postmodern relativism, occult and New Age. The book can be used by seminary students wanting to be equipped to minister to the needs of those influenced by New Age teaching.
Dr. Sandra Clifton writes with clarity as she calls the reader to action through a loving, listening outreach. Her writing is Biblical, informational and inspirational. "From New Age to New Life" is an important and timely book.
