What They’re saying about Unmasking the Masquerade
Unmasking the Masquerade is both delightfully entertaining and determinedly educational. In this book, we are guided by three masterful illusionists—Rod Robison, Dr. Toby Travis and Adrian Van Vactor—who are determined to always emphasize the preeminence of reality over illusion.Dr. Ron R. Rickards, physicist and author of Eternal Harmony, Volume 1: The Unity of Truth in God
A page turner from start-to-finish, Unmasking the Masquerade is for every person who ever asked, How’d he do that…?Dr. Paul Simpson, forensic psychologist and author of Second Thoughts
Unmasking the Masquerade is like reading three books in one as it debunks what has captivated so many in search of a mystic experience. It’s a great reference source for tracing the history of the magical illusion. It’s also a theological treatise on how Scripture views and explains what we call magic. Unmasking the Masquerade is also a personal story of one illusionist’s pursuit of spiritual truth. Fantastic!!Greg Walters, Broadcaster and Radio Station Manager
Having always enjoyed watching magicians, I found Unmasking the Masquerade a fascinating read. For me, the real magic was how Rod Robison was able to weave together historical and current stories debunking Spiritualists while never giving away the trade secrets of the illusionists I love to watch perform. If you want to know, ‘how did he do that?’, apart from some generalities, you will probably be disappointed. However if you want to know ‘how he didn’t do that’ you will appreciate Rod pulling…Peter Brooks, Family Life Radio Network Morning Show Host
Before reading this book, grab your highlighter. You will find so many pieces of great information that you will want to remember, your book will probably glow in the dark like mine.Don Bursell, Entertainer
Unmasking the Masquerade is a valuable resource to any who might be curious about the crossover between illusion and their Faith. It is a must read with well documented content.Dr. James R. Phipps, University Professor
Unmasking the Masquerade has really opened my eyes to how easily we can be deceived into believing in paranormal powers based on simple parlor tricks and sleight of hand. I now realize I had been more influenced by movies, books, TV, and false preaching than the Bible, facts, and research!Tom Worcester, Aerospace Engineer
There is just so much value in every chapter.Stan Moser, Former CEO of Star Song Records and Author of We Will Stand
This book is truly a revelation. I cannot say enough about how compelling I found it to be. Robison, Travis, and Van Vactor bring their unique voices to the age-old interest in the art of illusion and bring a refreshing new perspective on its origins and its limitations while in the same breathe giving credence to the mysteries that are sometimes beyond us and left in the realm of the undiscovered spiritual reality that awakes us all. Superb.Joseph Lamm, Recording Artist and Author
I’ve long wondered, however, how either the secular humanist or Bible-believing Christian can blissfully attempt to place a false faith in a paradigm which simply cannot be reconciled with his or her regular world view. Unmasking the Masquerade addresses these challenges, and does so from a Believer’s perspective, while keeping the facts squarely planted in reality.Greg Edmonds - writer, illusionist, and student of magical history
