The Light That Was Dark is a sober warning to the world and to the Church. Author Warren Smith learned some hard lessons as a spiritual seeker. Smith's spiritual trek took him deep into the California subculture of alternative New Age spirituality. He was led to various New Age teachers and teachings that seemed to promise new wonders and a deeper sense of spiritual fulfillment to satisfy his ever-intensifying spiritual yearnings. Just as everything seems to be coming together for Smith, several unexpected jolts and twists occur in his life. Concerned that today's Church is being seduced by the same false teachings and same false Christ that drew him into the New Age, Smith shares his story.
