Also interesting is that Norman Grubb was the founder of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. I note for the record that the only threat I ever had to my face about character assassination if I did not back off the New Age Movement issues was from James W. Sire, Sr., senior editor of InterVarsity Publishers. This occurred in the Merchandise Mart Holiday Inn of Chicago, Illinois on March 20, 1983, the morning after I did a 3 hour television special with Jerry Rose at a Chicago, Illinois Christian television station. Recently, I obtained a book by Sire about Vaclav Havel, the former Prime Minister of Czechoslovakia. Sire wrote openly and approvingly of Havel's "noetic moments." Vaclav Havel was an open New Ager and proudly claimed by such by the New Age communities.
