Spooked: Talking About the Supernatural


Books 3 and 4 in the Talking About series were published in early May this year. I was satisfied with the first two, but very pleased with how these two have ended up. They have a better balance of material in them, for one thing.

Here's the blurb and contents list for Spooked:

‘I've never been someone who needed organised religion. But I've always been someone with a deep belief in a higher power'. George Michael's comments on the Parkinson show sum up what many people feel about the supernatural. Why is it that so many people today see life as being more than just what can be explained rationally, yet are resistant to the gospel? How can Christians engage with those who are happy to talk about spirituality, but less interested in talking about Jesus? Spooked: Talking About the Supernatural begins to address these issues by engaging with recent films, books and television programmes.
