About This Book
An eight-year journey through the occult and into freedom
Though Kristine McGuire was raised in a Christian home, at an early age she became fascinated by the occult. At sleepovers she and her friends told fortunes and held séances. As a teenager she was convicted and put all games of mysticism aside. She went to a Christian college and married a Christian man. But despite her decision to follow God, a longing for the occult persisted, leading her to leave her church and husband and to fully embrace witchcraft.
Escaping the Cauldron takes you deep inside Kristine’s eight-year journey as a witch, medium, and ghost hunter. Part Bible study, part memoir, it exposes the subtle occult influences that affect us as it reveals how God mercifully delivered her out of the occult altogether and restored her faith and life in Christ.
Kristine McGuire writes with refreshing vulnerability as she shares her experiences as a witch, medium, and ghost hunter. Without sensationalism or glorification of evil, Kristine effectively walks the reader through personal and sometimes terrifying experiences and into the beautiful deliverance. Using scripture to anchor her words, she encourages the church to love and not condemn those trapped in Satan’s snare. A must read for Christian parents.
