f "paranormal" really is "the new normal," as most leading scholars agree, then Christians face a dilemma in searching for the appropriate level of skepticism amid surprising evidences that support a Supernatural Worldview. While culture abounds with everything from ghosts to space aliens and all sorts of fantastic nonsense, foundational Christian tenets such as the Resurrection and fulfilled prophecy can be counted among the most incredible supernatural phenomena of all.
Presenting Christian apologetics from an apocalyptic perspective, The Supernatural Worldview offers a close and careful look at supernatural and paranormal phenomena through the lens of biblical scholarship. Surveys of contemporary and ancient research reveal that, surprisingly, even some of the usual evangelical answers to questions raised concerning these topics are found wanting: "In the one area where the church is supposed to have specialized mastery," observes author Cris Putnam, "it is failing to be salt and light. Through either ignorance, incredulity, or both, we're not providing convincing answers when it comes to paranormal phenomena."
