Comments: I can't recommend this book, more from a theological perspective than a magic contents perspective. You may be able to use some of the tricks to good effect. The premise of the book is to use "sales" techniques to win people to the Gospel. While not entirely out of line, the focus is not on allowing the Holy Spirit to work. Also, the author seems to doubt God's word concerning such things as the Loaves and the Fish in "Will the Real Miracle Please Stand Up?". While I don't expect to agree fully with all Gospel Magicians, there are certain minimums such as taking the Bible literally when appropriate.
