Dr. Randy’s Guests on Today’s Program

Authors of Unmasking the Marquerade and Illusionists Rod Robison, Dr. Toby A. Travis, and Adrian Van Vactor

Each author is a highly skilled illusionist with international reach who writes with a unique voice, from a different background and perspective. Meet a historian and media executive, a scholar and educator, and a Christian apologist and entertainer, each an expert in their field, each illuminating a different aspect, and each with many stories and eye-witness accounts that make Unmasking a surprising and fascinating read.

Unmasking the Masquerade brings critical perspective to the exploding entertainment field of magic and illusion, and to the millions of people around the world being deceived and frightened by seemingly supernatural activity they have witnessed or heard about. During a time when interest in magic and the occult has catapulted to new heights in every entertainment venue, when people around the globe are experiencing crises of faith at the hands of unscrupulous charlatans, this book will provide both explanation and a lesson in discernment that will quite literally unmask the masquerade that has hurt so many people.

Unmasking the Masquerade exposes deception and fear for what they are–paralyzing traps that require a supernatural solution.  It’s eye-opening, entertaining, and liberating.” – Dr. Kevin Leman
