Description : Synopsis: Mutilated animals. Defaced tombstones. Sexual abuse in daycare centers. Is America threatened by a satanic conspiracy? In this book, Robert D. Hicks exposes law enforcement's obsessive preoccupation with Satanism as a model for criminal behavior. While satanic belief has played a part in crimes ranging from petty vandalism to serial murders, Hicks avows that there is no substantial evidence for the existence of a nationwide satanic crime continuum. Hicks points out that the satanic criminal model is expedient largely due to its simplicity and economy, reducing to simple formulas such complex problems as drug abuse, teen suicide, and sexual molestation. His research utilizes a unique blend of law-enforcement methodology, anthropology, folklore, history, sociology, psychology and psychiatry. He attributes the cult conspiracy theory to beliefs fueled by Christian fundamentalist sects and to the ungovernable mechanisms of rumor-panics, subversive mythology, and urban legend. In Pursuit of Satan documents examples of rumor-panics in which the police have fomented fear by attributing crimes to Satanists, indulging in sheer speculation and promulgating misinformation through the sensationalist news media. Hicks examines the construction of the satanic ideology among law enforcement officials, focusing on the exploitation of Satanism as a new scapegoat for public fears and addressing the phenomenon of credulity among police forces and allied professionals in social work, psychiatry, and psychology.

Description : God created us in His image and He created us for eternal life. Jesus revealed the meaning of this truth in a conversation with the Father in John 17:3, ?And this is eternal life: to know You, the only true and real God, and to know Him, (Jesus Christ) Whom You have sent.' Our enemy, the age-old serpent, Satan, was furious because mere humans made from the dust of the earth were to have what he forfeited and would never be able to have. The Bible tells us that Satan has waged war against us. ?And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he went in pursuit of the woman who had given birth to the male Child.' But when God set His plan in place for our counter pursuit the devil was furious. ?So then the dragon was furious (enraged) at the woman, and he went away to wage war on the remainder of her descendants [on those] who obey God's commandments and who have the testimony of Jesus Christ!? (Rev 12:17) But The Written Word of God is alive, He is Jesus. He is full of power to change us internally in the deepest parts of our very being. Our relationship encounters with Jesus, the Word, exposes, sifts, and analyzes, and judges the deep things even the long ago buried and forgotten things. Exposure enables the full power of God to do a thorough work internally, where Christ Jesus judges us, in our hearts!

Description : In Pursuit of His Glory is a journey into Gods plan to restore His glory to the temple in this end time hour. Is the glory of God the answer to the question of how God will birth end time revival? Has he promised that the end time glory will exceed the former glory experienced in the Old Testament temple? Could national revival be birthed in a single day? Is it possible that man will once again hear the audible voice of God? In this book, we will explore these possibilities as we endeavor to birth within each reader a fresh and renewed hunger for the manifest presence of the Lord. Since he personally experienced the presence of Gods glory, Pastor Hurst has been on a quest to once again enter this most holy place. His quest was heightened in January of 2003 after he experienced a most unusual visitation from the Holy Spirit.

Description : Robin Dawes spares no one in this powerful critique of modern psychotherapeutic practice. As Dawes points out, we have all been swayed by the "pop psych" view of the world--believing, for example, that self-esteem is an essential precursor to being a productive human being, that events in one's childhood affect one's fate as an adult, and that "you have to love yourself before you can love another."

Description : Never have I seen anyone like to admit that he has been conned. But your Bible warns that Satan wants to con you out of your most precious possession. Do you recognize Satan's greatest deceptions—and how you can avoid them? That is the essence of “The Pursue of Veracity” Our world is filled with con artists, liars and thieves who seek to defraud us. They have used their position as a pastor of assigned congregation to spread their false-hood and deception. But the Bible warns us about the greatest deceiver of all—Satan the Devil. Are you aware of his tactics? Are you prepared to avoid his schemes, or could you fall victim to his deceptions? In the same way that crooked salesmen do their best to defraud innocent citizens and rob them of their life's savings, businessmen use false accounting to cheat investors and avoid taxes, thieves breaking into your home and robbing you of your possessions, the same way, that Satan has been deceiving you from practicing the Christian faith the way it ought to be. He wants to rob you of your most valuable possession of all, which is your eternal life and future as a child of God. This king of thieves and his cohorts work through deceptive practices, from selfish vanity, personal interpretation of the Bible for selfish gains to pride to dangerous occultism, seeking to turn people away from the truth and from the way of life that will bring true happiness—God's way. Do you think that because you are a religious person, you cannot be deceived? Jesus revealed that one of the most pervasive forms of deception is found in religious practice. And the Bible reveals who is behind many religious deceptions. Do you know who? The Apostle Paul warns the Corinthians against false ministers: "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works" (2 Corinthians 11:13–15). This book focuses on these deceptions that have been communicated to believers over the years. Peruse and let the true light contained in the Gospel shine through your soul.

Description : Is the Devil a bogeyman or a defeated foe? The answer to this question determines the way we relate to God and our fellow humans. When we ascribe our successes to our efforts and blame Satan for our woes, we cast him in a light that contradicts God's word. Man was created with a free will. A trillion devils cannot force a sane man to act outside his will. This book portrays the lives of eight principal characters who made the devil their bogeyman. They lived in their self-made prisons and wasted their lives in pursuit of ungodly ambitions. At the end of time when they stood before their Creator, they blamed the devil for their wasted years. They refused to take responsibility for their actions while on earth. Well, Satan would have none of that, so he hires a lawyer to represent him in God's court. Though this book is a work of fiction, some of the incidents are not. They happen every day. My heart desire is that every man will take responsibility for his or her life and stop ascribing power to the devil for he has none. For the Christians among us, can you explain why a being that is 'under our feet' should deserve your worship? Yes. Worship. You worship Satan every Sunday (or any other day) when you devote thirty to forty minutes to talk about him before you start praising the Father. How can a defeated foe attract so much attention from blood-bought children of God? It's time to let the devil stay where he belongs- under our feet!

Description : The Devil, like the poor, is always with us. Evil has been personified in every religion and culture, and Christianity in particular developed a highly graphic view of him from its earliest period. Sometimes grotesque, sometimes beautiful, sometimes threatening, sometimes seductively helpful, sometimes comical, Satan has played a variety of roles in human existence. Feared and frightening adversary of humankind during the Middle Ages, supposed master and friend of witches during the sixteenth century, and seducer of the devout during the seventeenth, he was gradually explained away as the nineteenth century started to lose its faith at home and export him in all his traditional aspects to the Empire. He made a startling and vicious come-back during the twentieth century as a focus of renewed admiration and even worship. This book follows the Devil through his various, sometimes surprising incarnations from the ancient world to the present, and shows that his reign is by no means over, even in the West.

Description : "Chronicles of Colfax County, and Cimarron in particular, are given a personal touch as the author parades a series of personalities and incidents gathered from family history and first hand interviews. The controversial Maxwell Land Grant whose master Lucien B. Maxwell continued a feudal tradition, the claims of English and Dutch, the part that Clay Allison, Dick Wootton and his toll gate, the rowdies and the trail blazers, the law officers and Fred Lambert especially are part of the story which encompasses some eight generations of life in New Mexico. From the time when there was a personal and private interpretation of justice, when a new land was being carved out in spite of the emergencies of frontier living, on to the day of the Stanley Steamer and airplane, here is a procession of man hunts, cattle thieves, Indians, episodes above and below the border, disputes over land and the means by which they were settled -- all in nostalgic presentation. For the Western fan -- the real stuff, and for the readers of her previous No Life For A Lady (1941) there's still the same sparkle and warmth" -- Kirkus reviews.

Description : In January 1692 in Salem Village, Massachusetts, two young girls began to suffer from inexplicable fits. Seventeen months later, after legal action had been taken against 144 people, 20 of them put to death, the ignominious Salem witchcraft trials finally came to an end. Mary Beth Norton gives us a unique account of the events at Salem, helping us to understand them as they were understood by those who lived through the frenzy. Describing the situation from a seventeenth-century perspective, Norton examines the crucial turning points, the accusers, the confessors, the judges, and the accused, among whom were thirty-eight men. She shows how the situation spiraled out of control following a cascade of accusations beginning in mid-April. She explores the role of gossip and delves into the question of why women and girls under the age of twenty-five, who were the most active accusers and who would normally be ignored by male magistrates, were suddenly given absolute credence. Norton moves beyond the immediate vicinity of Salem to demonstrate how the Indian wars on the Maine frontier in the last quarter of that century stunned the collective mindset of northeastern New England and convinced virtually everyone that they were in the devil's snare. And she makes clear that ultimate responsibility for allowing the crisis to reach the heights it did must fall on the colony's governor, council, and judges.

Description : Thomas Gray (1716-1771) had the misfortune to be a poet at a time when English poetry was struggling with an aching question: how to preserve continuity with the great tradition of Spenser, Shakespeare, and Milton, yet avoid being merely echoes of them. A deep admirer of Milton, Gray emulated not only the great poet's subjects and diction, but his life as well. Although Gray turned to Milton for reminders of the heights to which all poetry might strive, he felt alternately energized and paralyzed by the sublimity of Milton's example. But Gray had an ally in his contest with his mighty predecessor. His friend and former schoolmate, Richard West, was also well educated, a devotee of Milton, and a poet. Gray Agonistes is the first book to examine in detail the intersection in Thomas Gray's life and poetry of Milton's career and achievement and Gray's intense homosexual relationship with Richard West (and, to a lesser extent, with Horace Walpole and Thomas Ashton, all of whom banded together at Eton as the Quadruple Alliance). In all of Gray's poetry Gleckner discovers sites of intense and heroic struggle--with Milton's ghost and with Gray's need to articulate his passionate attachment to West. After West's early death in 1742, Gray's foreboding became anguish, and he became the poet of Elegy in a Country Churchyard.

Description : This God our Savior was nothing like Sarah had been taught. Being brought up in the church her whole life, Sarah had the strength to pick herself up after her loss, and she even found her faith again. Though she had never truly lost it. She had been genuinely hurt and angry that the 'loving' God, she had always been told about would just take and take, but now those emotions seemed distant and surreal. Sarah laid on her bed in the darkness, and she was fuming. Her parents expected her to continue on to church, the house of the God that was betraying her, like nothing had happened, as if He had done nothing. No, she wouldn't have it. He was cruel and cold, playing painful tricks for his own amusement. She didn't know if she could handle being His jester for long. Such emotional and spiritual damage will soon force her to turn to 'the craft'. After all, if God wanted nothing to do with her, she would give her attention to Satan, if that's what it took to move on. In this gripping Novel Lucifer's Angel, The Church of Satan. Sarah is drawn to witchcraft after she loses all hope in her family's faith. She begins to play with black magic. Experimenting with witch craft, what will she become a white witch or black witch? The Devil wields his power in mysterious ways.
