By Adrian Lee

Using the Bible as reference, historian and psychic investigator Adrian Lee, a devout Christian, digs deeply into religious beliefs that appear on the surface to denounce the work of mediums, healers, and psychics. He explains these passages clearly and in historical context, challenging Christians to understand the deeper meanings and various settings in which these passages were intended to apply, so that the bible’s true message can emerge. He also explains his work as a healer and psychic investigator, showing how Christians can safely and effectively use their own God-given psychic gifts to help others.

It was with reluctance that I decided to buy this book, but the subject matter seemed interesting to me since I am also a paranormal investigator.  It is true that there has always been a rift between the study of the paranormal and organized religion.  The question that is asked of these two groups of people that brings interesting but mostly different answers is: “Do you believe in ghosts?”  The author does a good job of explaining and exploring the bible to show that in fact the existence of ghosts is mentioned in the good book 108 times.  The author acknowledges that multiple interpretations of the bible have changed the way some think and how people may relate to the words within. This has led to hypocrisy among certain segments of Christians, as it relates to paranormal practices.

The book is well written and easy to understand but unfortunately, a dark cloud of suspicion and skepticism hangs over the author in this latest book of his.  In a previous publication: Mysterious Minnesota: Digging Up The Ghostly Past, the author made claims that were proven false (Was not present at investigations he wrote about being at.). Former team members can back this up, which includes me.  More can be written here but it would do injustice to his latest book, which deserves an honest review.

That being the past, I hope Mr. Lee has worked to be truthful in his latest efforts. After all, honesty should go hand in hand with his Christian values.

In May of 2011, the author writes that he had an “Angel Visitation” after he asked God to “Show me an angel.” He writes: “There was a chill in the air, and I gathered the bed covers around me…” and then describes  “a blinding light raining down on me from above.  It was very powerful and filled the room, glowing and dazzling like the white light in the hottest part of a furnace. It was so intense that I immediately realized I could not see the walls or corners of the room.”

The author later writes that a man by the name of “Joshua” also visited him.  Explains the author: “In His day, Jesus was actually known as ‘Joshua ben Joseph’.” That is quite an acknowledgment and it would be a profound responsibility on the shoulders of anybody.

Even with the cloud of suspicion and skepticism hanging over the author’s head, the content in the book is worth the read.

I give How to Be a Christian Psychic 3 stars
