Product Description

The Further New Age Implications of the Emerging Purpose Driven Movement

"A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?" Jeremiah 5:30-31

Five years after writing Deceived on Purpose: the New Age Implications of the Purpose Driven Church, former New Age follower Warren Smith continues to reveal how Christian leaders wittingly or unwittingly are leading the church into a spiritual trap. A "Wonderful" Deception examines church metaphors, concepts, and beliefs that are essentially the same as those being used in today's New Age teachings. And while biblical prophecy is being minimized and explained away, the "new science" is being used to prepare the world--and the church--to accept a New Spirituality and a false New Age Christ. This book explains how all the puzzle pieces are in place for the strong delusion described in 2 Thessalonians. A "Wonderful"Deceptionpierces right into the heart of this deception while preparing believers in Jesus Christ to effectively stand against it.

*How the best-selling novel, The Shack, fits into the "wonderful" deception
*Ten scriptural reasons not to be connected with the Purpose Driven movement

Author Bio: Warren Smith (B.A. University of Pennsylvania; M.S.W. Tulane University) A free lance writer and community social worker who was formerly involved in the New Age movement. He has served as a program coordinator for people with special needs, directed several homeless programs, and has worked most recently as a Hospice social worker in New Orleans and on the California coast. He has written extensively on the subject of spiritual deception and has been widely interviewed on radio and television.


This book is [Warren Smith's] magnum opus! A fantastic work ... [T]his volume is the most extensive critique of Purpose Driven teachings and emergent teaching that I have ever seen ... a wealth of information, lots of footnotes, lots of quotations ... showing where the apostasy is and how it has been so pervasive through the church today ... I am so moved by reading A "Wonderful" Deception.--Larry Spargimino, Southwest Radio Church Ministries

In this excellently researched and put together book, Warren Smith systematically tears down the false arguments of the Purpose Driven apologists.  Mr. Smith takes the mask off of the purpose driven movement and shows without question how they do not line up with scripture.  I found the book very well put together, easy to understand and very defensible.  This book should be read by every Pastor who is interested in defending their congregations from the Purpose Driven Heresy.--Pastor Randy Sortino, Central Bible Evangelical Free Church, Centralia, WA

Rick Warren is retiring, but the damage is done

I heard that Rick Warren is retiring in September, but his books will continue to be peddled for years to come. My mom just recently bought The Purpose Driven Life, so I wanted to figure out how to talk to her about it. I had already read Warren Smith's "Deceived on Purpose," but wanted to see what this newer book said, as well. My mom doesn't see past the "Christian" label pasted on all of Rick Warren's stuff, so she tends to believe whatever he & other false teachers put out there. It's really helpful being 'armed' with Warren Smith's books that use scripture to back up WHY the purpose-driven movement is not only heretical but dangerous. It's leading people astray! Rick Warren is not a discerning man, and he has allowed New Age leaders to infiltrate the church. He has done more damage that he realizes, and refuses to admit he's guilty. Very frustrating. It's difficult reading these books because I get really upset, but it's good to be informed! Thanks Warren for your work.

Exceptional Book

Without a doubt, Warren B. Smith is a great blessing to the Christian community. His knowledge of occult philosophies is second to none. In this book, he explains in great detail how such teachings have come into the church and how to detect them. If you have yet to purchase it (or any of Mr. Smith's material), I highly recommend that you do before your own church is inundated with dangerous new age views.

A "Wonderful" Deception

I would highly recommend reading this book that I believe exposes the pseudo-oneness heresy that has crept into the professing Christian church.
