Could “Positive Thinking” be Harmful?

Ever wonder how the message of “positive thinking” crept into the church and its teachings? Did you know that this message has its roots in the occult and mystical cultures? I really had never considered the topic of positive thinking being harmful or how it could permeate a culture and doctrine.

L.L. Martin has taken a look back through history to see how this once thriving movement infiltrated the church and the ramifications. This book is well done, the history lesson you will receive is very interesting, well-sourced and done so you don’t snooze while reading in.

Each chapter has some discussion questions so you could do this as a group study or just use them for yourself to really ponder what is being said. You will learn in this book that there is a thin line between being a positive person and adhering to the “positive thinking” doctrine.

I love the fact that the book uses scripture to help make the point, along with quotes from many of my favorite Christians such as A.W. Tozer, C.S. Lewis, Randy Alcorn and Dietrich Bonheoffer to name a few. I would recommend this book, it lays out the history and the perils of the “positive thinking” movement.

This book was given to me by L.L Martin for my honest opinion.
