Paganism on the Rise
An Interview with Berit Kjos

by Ron Rhodes

an article from the Interview column of the Christian Research Newsletter, Volume 5: Number 4, 1992.

The Editor of the Christian Research Newsletter is Ron Rhodes.

Concern for the environment has joined with mysticism to spark a return to ancient forms of nature worship. Paganism is on the rise, and the "Earth Goddess" is beckoning. Indeed, pagan beliefs are subtly entering peoples' lives through media, schools, and even the church. In this issue of the Newsletter, Berit Kjos -- author of Under the Spell of Mother Earth -- gives us her insights on this important issue.
