"In this wonderfully and simply detailed account of her years in the New Age, her release
from the bonds of this many faceted movement, and her final conversion to a Christian life, Noonan reveals how Faith can deliver
us from the dark spirits who seek to destroy us. She demonstrates how it gently beckons us into a life of peace and joy, embedded
in its own deeply spiritual and often mystical richness." - MARILYN M. MARSHALL PHD, Psychotherapist

Ransomed From Darkness:
The New Age, Christian Faith
and the Battle
By Moira Noonan
Ransomed from Darkness tells the story of one woman’s journey from
the New Age movement back to the Christian faith into which she was born. Moira Noonan began her exploration of the New Age
in the early 1970s. She went on to serve as a minister in the Church of Religious Science for twenty years, and there mastered
many of the ideas and practices that have come to define the New Age movement, including clairvoyance, hypnotherapy, spiritual
healing and past life regression. A series of powerful inner experiences, and a growing recognition of the errors of a spiritual
system that promises to deify the individual, showed her the way back to the faith she had left behind.
Noonan’s story has been an inspiration
to thousands of people who have begun to feel the inadequacy of New Age-inspired road maps to enlightenment. Because her knowledge
of New Age practices is unusually thorough and grounded in experience, her critique of the movement is particularly authoritative
The first section ofRansomed From
Darkness presents a fascinating, candid, sometimes humorous, sometimes frightening account of the author’s life as a
New Age minister and the dramatic story of her conversion. In the second section of the work, Noonan addresses common questions
that Christians have about the New Age Movement, as well as questions that people who have embraced New Age ideas raise about
the spiritual answers and resources offered by the Catholic tradition.
