Riassunto: A North Carolina attorney, who is also the former publisher of the daily newspaper, The Gaston Gazette, is the author of a unique and fascinating new book, Battle Cry, which delves into the world of unseen forces and powers that author Jim Atkins maintains influence every facet of our daily lives. Drawing on both personal experiences and extensive studies over the past thirty-two years, Atkins weaves a story of demons, angels, conspiracies and control into a cohesive saga and offers it as an explanation of many otherwise unexplainable events plaguing our society. Involving such diverse subjects as the NAFTA Agreement, Satanism, Freemasonry, the Federal Reserve, local power structures and the sexual revolution, he attempts to link all of them and more to an ongoing battle between darkness and light ? a modern version of the "battle of the ages". A committed Christian who believes in the miraculous and the unlimited power of God, Atkins nevertheless strips the veneer from those whom he regards as false prophets, priests and scam artists, hiding behind the label of minister or evangelist or healer. "By calling themselves 'ministers of the gospel' and bringing disgrace upon the name of Jesus, these are those who have really taken the name of the Lord in vain," he says. Faced with a rebellious son who, like many in the late 1960s, was dabbling in drugs, Jim and his wife, Carol, sought help from a special school for troubled youth in Florida. In 1973 TIME magazine was to label this school "Valley of Horrors". Both Satanism and witchcraft were rampant on the campus and the students were treated as prisoners. Many bumpy years later, the Atkins have long sinced reconciled with their son. As a result, of their difficulties, however, both Jim and Carol have studied and taught on cults, the occult, the New Age movement and the New World Order, as well as related subjects. "Our church at the time this was happening was a good one with fine parishioners, but almost no one there, including the minister, believed in the existence of a real devil.", Atkins said, "I determined that I would do what I could to see to it that no one else would go unwarned about such things. That's the reason for the book." Consisting of 592 pages, Battle Cry is hardly a light work, but there are humerous moments. It is a book in which the reader will find himself or herself identifying with many of the problems and the triumphs, the hopes and the disappointments. It involves numerous and diverse subjects but they all come together at the end.
