I realize the subject matter of this post is a little off the beaten track for the Hope Blog. A friend recently described the growing influence of occult and paranormal themes in children’s literature. A trip to the children’s section of any bookstore will show just how true this is. Like many parents, I have witnessed an acceleration of this in recent years.
The Gospel of Madeleine L’Engle is written by Claris Van Kuiken, an author and researcher I have known for over 25 years. While it is off the beaten track for my blog here, the spiritual nature of the subject matter makes it highly relevant. One of the early children’s authors to blatantly introduce occult concepts and terms to children was the late Madeleine L’Engle. The article details just how extensive these ideas are within her books, both for children and adults. For Christian parents, it’s worth knowing.
