Local mind reader directs Christian 'magic' show



“I was literally dying a death and then they brought that bag of blood into the room,”he said.”The whole process was to get that new blood inside of me. Everyone was hoping my body would accept the new blood, and it did. And it slowly began to build a new immune system.”

Now Munroe is 100 percent cancer free and has written a book, called “The Charlatan,” about his experience.He describes it as the “true story of a Christian magician.”

Before his life-threatening ordeal, Munroe was skeptical about God’s existence. He said he asked God to reveal himself to him. During his treatment, he said, he kept hearing phrases about being born anew and being like a baby in the womb Ñ phrases he recalled from scripture.

“My life with Jesus has completely changed as a result of my darkest hour, and I’m actually thankful for having to go through it,” Munroe said in his testimony.

“I’m thankful about who God is and what He did for me.”

Cullen said the Maze shows are free, and he, Munroe and Mirzadeh do two or three hours of “street magic” beforehand to get people interested in attending. Cullen described street magic as card and coin tricks in the style of magician David Blaine.

Because Maze is not-for-profit, various organizations such as Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) raise money to bring them in. Anyone interested in partnering with Maze can contact Cullen at to find out more.

“Jim and Zak also raise support all year long to pay expenses,” Cullen said. “We’re getting a lot of recognition. His story is a very powerful story, and people are wanting to hear more about it. I would love to do something at one of the churches here,have his book and do a book signing.”
