Book Description

June 15 2001 Forbidden Doors Series (Book 2)
The occult is a very real influence for today's youth--and the world is only too eager to exploit their curiosity about the supernatural. Tyndale and Bill Myers, cocreator of McGee and Me!, counteract the deceptions presented by immensely popular titles with an innovative approach to juvenile fiction--the Forbidden Doors series. Insightful and straightforward, each volume tackles spiritual warfare by presenting biblical truths through realistic situations and characters.

#2 The Deceived--Her newfound fascination with hypnotism and reincarnation leads Rebecca to doubt her Christian convictions--and nearly destroy her life. But her brother and a mystery friend named "Z" know that God can bring her through this dangerous deception.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye, R.L. Stine! June 8 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
My daughter, like many girls her age, has an interest in R.L. Stine books. She desires to know more about the spiritual realm, and she wants to face her fears. Healthy desires, yes. Open to deception, absolutely.
Bill Myers "Forbidden Doors" books have been just what the Physician ordered. I've enjoyed Myers' adult novels, but I think his books for the younger set are even more entertaining. And, above all, they shed light on the biblical definitions of good and evil.
"The Deceived" is the second book we've read together. We liked the first book, but this one was even more riveting. This time, Myers lets one of his main characters, Rebecca, face the deception that's all around. She begins to succumb to the "logic" of reincarnation and hypnotism, mesmerized by the beguiling Maxwell Hunter. Her struggle is believable. Scary stuff. And, with the end of each chapter, my daughter was begging for more. In fact, she let her library book of R.L. Stine's sit abandoned on the table as we cruised through the pages of "The Deceived" to discover Rebecca's final outcome.
We've already obtained a copy of the third book, "The Spell." We can't wait to get started! Hello, Bill Myers. Goodbye, R.L. Stine!

This book is great. I'm a teen and I still love this book.
Reincarnation is definetly not my specialty( I never understood it before) but Bill Myers explained it and showed us how dangerous it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is awesome! Nov. 20 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Hi! I really recommend this book to all teenagers who are into Jesus and like to be kept on the edge of their seat. The whole forbidden Door series is great. I rate this a top notch book. It teaches the importance of not letting even a little bit of sin in your life. If you give it an inch, it takes about a hundred miles. So give you whole self to God, not just part. Myers really emphazises the importance of faith and prayer. Please read this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars The most thrilling and interesting book in his series. Aug. 13 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed reading Deceived. It highlighted a lot of misconceptions about hypnotism, whether it is authentic and whether it is scripturally based. It also satiated my curiosity about the occult and its practices today's times. Although I am an adult and a mature Christian in my faith a lot of questions regarding hypnotism and how it is viewed from a biblical perspective were answered for me. I enjoyed this book. It was educational and interesting. Bill Myers supports it with scripture and keeps it clear and simple. I highly recommend this series for all teenagers and young adults. Adults can get a lot out of this reading also. I plan to continue reading books by Bill Myer. It's a welcomed change in my collection of literature. A thrilling reading experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Christian Fiction Dec 10 2008
By Andrea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Becka and Scott Williams, along with their mother, move to California after having spent many years in the jungles of South America. They were missionaries, and their dad's plane crashed. Becka is trying to fit in to the California scene, after having spent most of her growing-up years in the jungle. Her younger brother, Scott, makes friends more easily and is less shy than she is.

In this particular book, a hypnotist gives a lecture at the Ascension Bookshop. He "chooses" Becka for hypnosis and makes her believe she lived a former life as a powerful king. This book shows how gullible people can be, even Christians. I was disappointed in the mother for allowing this to happen. I was also disappointed in Becka because she became arrogant and unsensitive, thinking she was royalty. But she was nothing more than a brain-washed victim; I've seen people in real life from certain churches who have this same type of brainwashing.

Will Scott have enough faith and courage to convince Becka of the truth? Will he have enough encouragement from from Z?

Z is a mysterious Christian friend that Scott met "on-line". The author gives a warning at the end of the book letting us know that when this series was conceived, there were not "bad" guys on-line, like there are now, and to be extremely careful about who you talk to on-line. In this particular book, Scott and his friend Darryl try to find out Z's identity. Will they succeed?

I feel these books are a very cozy series because they are centered around a very loving, Christian woman and her two Christian children. They all love each other very much. They have a very cozy home, and I can just "feel" and "imagine" how warm and loving and cozy their home is.

I recommend this "teen" Christian book to anybody, regardless of age. These books deal with issues that are real. Because of the encouragement and enlightment, anybody can benefit from these books.

I feel these are some of the best Christian books ever written.

The Deceived

Imagine that you have been hypnotized and then you experience some pretty harsh memories. It has you looking, acting, and is getting treated like a king. Then this guy that has gone nuts comes to your house, hypnotizes you again and then starts going out with your mom.

In the book The Deceived Bill Myers, the writer of the book, has a girl named Rebecca relive some tragic moments of her life while being hypnotized. Maxwell Hunter, the guy that hypnotized her, goes to Rebecca's house to hypnotize her again because he said that she had a magic power and then ends up going on a date with her mom. Her brother Scott is e-mailing a guy that goes by Z on the internet about Rebecca. Her friend Ryan thinks this Maxwell guy is bad, along with her mom and brother because her mom saw Maxwell killing a dog for fun. Maxwell starts killing the dog though his mind and with his eyes.

If you read this book it can really have a lot of favorite parts in it for you. A lot of lessons that you can learn are don't trust a hypnotist, don't let a freaky guy go on a date with your mom, and other important lessons.

If you love suspenseful books then you will love this one. It is also a book that you will have trouble laying down because it is an exciting book.
