    This book is based on a series of lectures given by John Drane under the auspices of the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity.The author has a wide knowledge of New Spiritualities or what is sometimes referred to as New Age From that experience he puts forward principles for churches as they engage with those spiritualities It s well thought out and provides a compass for finding a way forward for the church.The book should be a must read for anyone in Church leadership.
