Lighthouse Trails is pleased to announce the release of  Roger Oakland’s newest book, The Good Shepherd Calls: An Urgent Message to the Last-Days Church. Since the turn of the millennium, in particular since September 11, 2001 when America was attacked by terrorists triggering a global-wide spiritual paradigm shift, Christianity as we have known it has experienced a major meltdown. While many are saying Christianity is on the brink of a great revival and even a “new reformation,” in reality, we are witnessing the greatest apostasy in modern-day history.

Description: This latter-day deception has impacted every evangelical and Protestant denomination to one degree or another, and it is worldwide. The sheep have been led astray by shepherds who have neglected what they have been called to do—protect the sheep.

The Good Shepherd Calls brings clarity to what this delusion looks like, why it is happening, where it is headed, and what can still be done to warn believers and unbelievers alike.   

Author Bio: Roger Oakland is an author, lecturer, and the founder of Understand the Times, International. He has written several books and is featured in numerous documentary DVD films. Over the past 35 years, he has lectured in over 70 countries. He is also the founder of the Bryce Homes Program International, a missions program that ministers physically and spiritually to widows and children in several countries. His biography Let There Be Light chronicles his years as an evolutionist to becoming a creationist and then a believer in Jesus Christ.

By Julie B. (Paradise, California): Excellent source of consolidated information – still reading it! Thank you

 By Pastor John E Sutherland (SPRING CREEK, Nevada):  I am blessed to have read this book, it’s refreshing. It is so good to hear the truth being told. This man, Roger Oakland, is the watchmen on the wall, and he is crying out, “WAKE UP AMERICA, BEFORE ITS TO LATE.” It is rare that I can read a book and say that I agree 100% with everything that has been said here, but that is precisely the case. I told my congregation that if I could write a book, this is the book I would write. So praise the Lord for the truth. Absolutely a necessity for the discerning Christian. Pastor John Sutherland Calvary Chapel Spring Creek.

By Sharon R. (Kalispell, Montana): Clear, Concise, Sound Biblical Recap: I’ve been reading Roger’s book and so far (chapter 7) it is amazing. So well written and such clear, concise chapters that explain everything so well. Perfect for someone who has never heard of these things before, but such sound biblical recap and encouragement for those who know a little about the subject!

By Barbara E. (Southern California): One of His Best Books: This is one of the best books Roger Oakland has written, and I still have 40 more pages to read. It is so succinct. It really presents the total picture of the history and current journey of Christianity.  So many people want to get their ears tickled. They listen to whatever sounds good and feels good. Some churches may preach the true Word some of the time but one needs to examine the premise or the motives of the message.


By Dennis C. (Cameron Park, United States): A Resource for Pastors and Believers Alike: I have already read several chapters, and the book was sent in a timely fashion. Roger Oakland’s new book “The Good Shepherd’s Calls” should become a resource for Pastors, and believers alike to become watchmen to those unaware of the deception within Christianity today. It is wonderful to have so much vital information in one book, 5 stars!

Book Review: How to Protect Your Child From the New Age & Spiritual Deception

Dec 21st, 2013 Posted in Book/DVD Reviews, PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT | Comments Off on Book Review: How to Protect Your Child From the New Age & Spiritual Deception

From Books and Chocolate

Protecting our children from spiritual deception can seem a daunting task but How to Protect Your Child from the New Age & Spiritual Deception offers hope with practical steps Christian parents can take to become proactive in recognizing the dangers their children face while also teaching them to discern biblical truth. Berit Kjos has done her homework and documents how children and teens are being targeted with New Age and occultic messages through every form of media and in school curriculum and programs.

Some of the influence is attractively packaged in the form of a heroic young wizard, magical cats and ponies, powerful ninja warriors combating evil, cool anime characters, and vampire lovers. Other not so obvious messages come in the form of nature worship or Eastern religion type meditation disguised in schools as a quiet time of “mindfulness,” “centering,” or “visualization.”

Most surprising to me was that the Girl Scouts of America are on board as they now discourage the use of Christian emphasis in meetings but promote New Age spirituality in the form of yoga and meditation. The 2010 GSA brochure for their National Council Sessions stated, “Channel your inner-being. Be one with your mind, body and soul. Yoga for everyone!” (p.252) Kjos also documents that GSA has partnered with the Ashland Institute whose “Coming Into Your Own” program’s aim is to “create a team of adult champions who will model a search for integrated leadership that springs from a deep sense of self-knowledge.” The Ashland Institute also teaches a form of metaphysical energy healing described as “creative energy practice” which “deepens connection with the Source of Life” and the group is also partnered with The Fetzer Institute which offers a broad assortment of mystical, New Age/New Spirituality resources. (p. 253)

Exposes the assault on Christianity and the global plan to transform society through the minds of our children

TEMPTING VOICES BECKON to children everywhere. Schools, movies, music, and books all sound the call: “Come, dream, trust Self, you are divine, create your own reality, build a new world. Anything goes, for sin and guilt exist only in the minds of the antiquated ‘religious.’”

“Unlearning the old ways” is key to this global transformation. Today’s assault on biblical Christianity is fast undermining God’s moral and spiritual boundaries. It invites chaos rather than unity—coercion instead of freedom—war and violence instead of peace—and ultimately overtakes today’s children with the plan to turn them into “progressive” transformation leaders of tomorrow.

How can we equip our children so they do not become spiritually deceived and fall into this world-wide agenda? And how can we teach them to have the courage to say no to seductive enticements? There is an answer! We can teach our children to know Truth, so they will discern the counterfeit. And we can teach them how to spot the New Age/New Spirituality and to understand the serious implications that occur when it is embraced.

Author Bio: Berit Kjos is a respected researcher, the author of many books and magazine articles, and a concerned parent (and grandparent) who has extensively studied religious trends, today’s social changes, the roots and branches of the United Nations, the rising worldwide management system, and—most alarming of all—the transformation of the church. Berit first became aware of New Age and occult influences in our society at a 1974 conference on holistic health. As a registered nurse, she was interested in methods of healing but soon discovered that the occult powers found in New Age methods brought bondage instead of true healing.

Castles-in-the-SandThe following is an excerpt from our new book release, Castles in the Sand, the first novel ever written to expose the dangers of contemplative spirituality. CASTLES IN THE SAND


Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil. Proverbs 4:26-27

March 2009
No one noticed the slender girl in the shadows pick up her backpack, tiptoe through the maze of bodies and slip out the back door. The other students were preoccupied as they sat cross-legged on yoga mats while images of Mary, baby Jesus, Celtic crosses, and a winged sun disc flashed across a screen in the darkened room. Two intern youth pastors lay on their backs by the incense station, their eyes glazed as if in a trance. One of them softly chanted a Latin phrase
over and over in time to the repetitive beat. The sound man had long since stopped changing the music and lay nearly motionless on the floor beside the control panel.

As the girl exited the room and let the door quietly swing shut behind her, candles flickered and a paper in the hallway floated to the ground. It read:

Thompson Building, Room 109
Welcome Flat Plains Bible College Students
7:00 p.m. Friday March 27th
Required to Participate
*go deeper*make space for God*

She leaned against the back of the door for a moment, heart pounding. “Okay Tessa Dawson,” she whispered to herself, “you either just did the right thing or a very stupid thing. Now run!” While her panicked eyes quickly determined the nearest exit out of the building, she scooped up the paper, crumpled it into a ball, and tossed it into a nearby garbage can before racing down the hall. Her long brunette braids bounced madly behind her as she ran toward the stairwell. Suddenly, she heard muffled shouting in the distance, then footsteps coming down the flight of stairs above her.

Spurred on by fear, Tessa ran toward the nearest door, hoping desperately it would open.

Locked! She rushed to the next door and tried the knob.

Locked! She could barely breathe.

Keep going, keep going, she thought frantically. Turning the corner, she glanced over her shoulder. With furrowed eyebrows, she quietly turned the handle on the lecture hall door. The door swung open. Relief washed over her as she rushed in and quietly closed the door behind her. Inside, the room was deathly silent and inky black. Even the moon’s usual casting of long creepy shadows on its walls was missing, for the moon was hidden behind the churning, dark, and ominous clouds that filled the evening sky. Leaning against the nearest wall, the slightly built girl slumped to the floor and rested her head between her knees.

Exhausted and breathing heavily, she sat for a few minutes in the dark, trying to gather her thoughts. She had stayed in room 109 far too long.

Why couldn’t I break away? she wondered. Has this place turned into a prison after all?

Doubts had been brewing in her mind for some time, and now she realized there was only one thing to do. She must escape. They would soon be looking for her, she realized abruptly with a renewed sense of panic. There was no time to waste. (Click here to read the entire first chapter of Castles in the Sand.)
