Award-winning historian Mary Beth Norton reexamines the Salem witch trials in this startlingly original, meticulously researched, and utterly riveting study. In 1692 the people of Massachusetts were living in fear, and not solely of satanic afflictions. Horrifyingly violent Indian attacks had all but emptied the northern frontier of settlers, and many traumatized refugees—including the main accusers of witches—had fled to communities like Salem. Meanwhile the colony’s leaders, defensive about their own failure to protect the frontier, pondered how God’s people could be suffering at the hands of savages. Struck by the similarities between what the refugees had witnessed and what the witchcraft “victims” described, many were quick to see a vast conspiracy of the Devil (in league with the French and the Indians) threatening New England on all sides. By providing this essential context to the famous events, and by casting her net well beyond the borders of Salem itself, Norton sheds new light on one of the most perplexing and fascinating periods in our history. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Best-selling author, university professor, and beloved pastor of a mega-church in Los Angeles, Kenneth Ulmer exposes The Devil s Snare so you can stop the constant tug-of-war struggle between worshiping God and worrying about finances. We worry, worry, worry (about money), and yet we love Jesus. There is no need to worry. The Devil s Snare explains what lurks behind most Christians misunderstanding of money, riches, finances, and material possessions. Also revealed is the mysterious, insidious power that influences your desires for money and possessions. No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (Matthew 6:24 NKJV). Expertly and practically examined is the stronghold of mammon operating in the lives of many Christians, exposing its many distorted faces and lures. There is hope: You can jump out of the same old money rut of feeling like you re worth more than you re being paid or that you can never quite get ahead financially. You can understand the unseen force holding you back financially no matter how much money you earn or try to save. You can approach spending, earning, and saving in an entirely new way. God can break away The Devil's Snare from you today!

Stories of witchcraft and demonic possession from early modern England through the last official trials in colonial New England. Those possessed by the devil in early modern England usually exhibited a common set of symptoms: fits, vomiting, visions, contortions, speaking in tongues, and an antipathy to prayer. However, it was a matter of interpretation, and sometimes public opinion, if these symptoms were visited upon the victim, or if they came from within. Both early modern England and colonial New England had cases that blurred the line between witchcraft and demonic possession, most famously, the Salem witch trials. While historians acknowledge some similarities in witch trials between the two regions, such as the fact that an overwhelming majority of witches were women, the histories of these cases primarily focus on local contexts and specifics. In so doing, they overlook the ways in which manhood factored into possession and witchcraft cases. Vexed with Devils is a cultural history of witchcraft-possession phenomena that centers on the role of men and patriarchal power. Erika Gasser reveals that witchcraft trials had as much to do with who had power in the community, to impose judgement or to subvert order, as they did with religious belief. She argues that the gendered dynamics of possession and witchcraft demonstrated that contested meanings of manhood played a critical role in the struggle to maintain authority. While all men were not capable of accessing power in the same ways, many of the people involved—those who acted as if they were possessed, men accused of being witches, and men who wrote possession propaganda—invoked manhood as they struggled to advocate for themselves during these perilous times. Gasser ultimately concludes that the decline of possession and witchcraft cases was not merely a product of change over time, but rather an indication of the ways in which patriarchal power endured throughout and beyond the colonial period. Vexed with Devils reexamines an unnerving time and offers a surprising new perspective on our own, using stories and voices which emerge from the records in ways that continue to fascinate and unsettle us.

The inspiration to write this book was planted in my heart by the Holy Spirit over twenty years ago. I started writing chapter by chapter as the spirit inspired me. The title of each chapter was give to me by the Holy Spirit. At times I couldn’t write a single word and at other times the words wouldn’t stop. I was awaken sometimes in the early morning hours and midnight at times. The very title of this book was given to me a visual view. I was looking up while sitting in a warehouse when I notice that there were spider webs in the corner with an insect trapped in its web. The Holy Spirit said that mankind also is trapped in Satan’s web of sins. I notice that a spider was across the room in the far corner slowly making his way back to his web where upon his arrival he consumed the insect. The Holy Spirit then said that man get him or herself trapped then it may take a while for the old Devil to shows up to destroy them. Each Chapter deals with problems or demonic addictions which many in this world are dealing with. My hope is that this book will open up the eyes of ever one knowing that we all need God’s salvation and deliverance. There a many Christians walking around saved but not delivered from Generational curses and sins of their fathers and ancestors. Please understand that upon reading this book one need to eat what’s for them and leave the rest for the others who needs the rest. Some readers may not be Christians or born again members of the body of Christ and may have Questions. Go to the word of God (the bible) verify scriptures and ask you pastors. We all have been commanded to study to show ourselves approved unto God.

"Eine beeindruckend ungemütliche Lektüre." Times Literary Supplement Viel hat sich nicht verändert, seit John das kleine Tal in den englischen Endlands verlassen hat, um als Lehrer in der Stadt zu leben. Noch immer werden jeden Herbst die Schafe aus dem Moorland zusammengetrieben und noch immer begeht man den Devil's Day. Für die Kinder sind die Rituale und Feierlichkeiten ein großer Spaß, die Älteren wissen noch, was im Jahre 1913 passiert ist, als man den Teufel einmal nicht davongejagt hat. Erst kam ein Blizzard, dann fuhr der Teufel in Mensch und Tier, ließ die Alten an blutigem Husten ersticken und Jüngere erfrieren. Zuletzt war Johns Großvater für die Einhaltung der Bräuche zuständig, doch jetzt ist er tot. Als John mit seiner schwangeren Ehefrau zur Beerdigung anreist, steht der Devil’s Day kurz bevor und merkwürdige Vorfälle häufen sich. "Der neue Meister des Bedrohlichen. Dieser gruselige Nachfolger von Loney unterstreicht, dass sein Autor jemand ist, den man auf dem Schirm haben sollte." Sunday Times "Ein großartig geschriebener Roman, der den Leser rätselnd und verstört zurücklässt. Spannend!" Metro "Hurleys meisterlicher zweiter Roman bestätigt nachdrücklich die Verheißung seines preisgekrönten Debüts." Mail on Sunday "Hurley ist ein hervorragender Erzähler. Er führt dich ins Moor, ins Auge eines Schneesturms, dabei kleine Andeutungen hinterlassend, unheimliche Hinweise auf Teufeleien und dämonische Besessenheit. Dann wechselt er die Richtung, wühlt in den Spuren im Schnee, schnellt dir neue Schurkereien entgegen und lässt dich nachts in den Hügeln zurück." The Times "Die nebulöse Präsenz des Teufels ist so greifbar heraufbeschworen in diesem Roman, dass ich mich manchmal kaum getraut habe aufzusehen, aus Angst er könnte mich vom Stuhl neben mir aus angrinsen." Literary Review "Beunruhigend und atmosphärisch, die Schönheit dieses Romans liegt in seiner Trostlosigkeit." The Lady "Dieser makellos geschriebene Roman schließt sich wie eine feuchte Hand um Ihre Kehle." Daily Mail "Das ist eine Geschichte mit Sog. Das lebendige, sich steigernde Gefühl des Bösen ist eng verwoben mit den Annahmen darüber, wie die dargestellte Art zu leben ist, diese offenbar zeitlose Beziehung zwischen Landbewohnern und Moor." Guardian "Er beschreibt auf wunderschöne Weise eine trostlose Landschaft und das Gefühl, dass etwas Teuflisches und Unerkennbares in den Mooren ist, zwischen den Hügeln und auf den Pfaden." Sunday Express "Der Nachfolger von Loney verbindet Mythen, Landschaft und Horrorelemente mit unheimlicher Wirkung." Financial Times "Hurley ist ein sehr guter Autor, mit Interessen, die ihn leicht abseits des Mainstreams positionieren, ein Abstand, der ihn extrem interessant macht." John Boyne, Irish Times
