Rosemary Ellen Guiley is an American researcher and writer on topics related to spirituality, the occult and paranormal.[1] A prolific writer, she has written more than 45 books, including ten encyclopedias.

Works[edit]

Her works include Atlas of the Mysterious in North America (1995) – a listing of places in Canada and the US associated with mysterious occurrences;[2] The Encyclopedia of Witches and Witchcraft;[2] and Harper's Encyclopedia of Mystical & Paranormal Experience – a reference book on topics related to spirituality, mythology and New Age.[3]

Activities[edit]

Guiley is a consulting editor of Fate magazine and a regular guest on Coast to Coast AM. She has made appearances on various television shows, including A&E, The History Channel and The Discovery Channel.[4] Her work has been translated into 14 languages and has been selected by major book clubs around the world.[5]

Criticism[edit]

Christian evangelist John Ankerberg criticized Guiley's understanding of intuition (as she described it in Harper's Encyclopedia of Mystical and Paranormal Experience – "intuition invariably proves to be right"), saying that with beliefs like those, rational thinking and spiritual discernment are often discarded.[6] He also interprets from her book Angels of Mercy that she and other New Age writers of angel literature are unwittingly relating to fallen angels/demons.[7] In Angels of Mercy Ankerberg criticizes Guiley's assertion that "angels" should be trusted unconditionally without the fear-based belief that they might be demons, saying that it is irrational and that he believes demons are indeed impersonating angels.[8]
