"Tell our stories, my child." It was his mother's last wish. Now, three years after her death, he gathers the stories that changed his life forever. Author Joseph P. Policape introduces us to the man responsible for recording these stories of faith's victory in his new book entitled Voodoo and Christianity: Confrontations between Good and Evil. Mario's flooded memories bring him back to the time of distant wounds. He had witnessed the town of Bainet suffering during its most treacherous times. Once, the whole town was slaved by the demonic voodoo spirit until a small band of Protestants started a war against them. His own family had been torn apart by this spiritual war; Mario's mother had been a strong believer of Jesus while the father had rejected Christianity, for his voodoo gods. Read and discover the struggle that leads to the victory for the Pentecost faith in Voodoo and Christianity. After reading this book, readers will see how Jesus Christ alone stopped the dominant curse of Satan and his bloody, hopeless helpers in Bainet. Poetry was the river that Mr. Policape dived into to wash off the anger of his soul. It helped him to mock his own madness and was his support when he finally forgave himself and the world around him. His very first published book had the peculiar title, The Bird's Love for Poetry and Essays, and came out in 2004. Two years later, in 2006, an intense, creative time, he published two books, A Spiritual Journey and Interpretations of Romance , and now working on two more creations, which hopefully will be out in the fall of 2009. Mr. Joseph P. Policape has received a gold medal from Famous Poet in 2007. He is a distinguished member of the National Poetry.com and Cambridge Who's Who. Mr. Policape received his undergraduate degree in economics at the University of Massachusetts in Boston, and he completed his graduate degree in management information systems at Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. However, during those times, he was reading, writing, singing, and loving poetry. His daytime advocates were rightfully telling him that one poetry was stealing too much of his time from economics and management, but he literally and poetically ignored them!

Part textbook, part life-story, part theological expos, Understanding Haitian Voodoo comes from a much-respected Haitian gentleman who writes as a lawyer, judge, and evangelist who cares deeply about his people and their bondage in Voodoo. "Voodoo is not simply a myth, toward which we can remain indifferent. It is not just popular culture that we should teach and practice in schools through dances and songs. The gods of Voodoo are not simply idols or harmless gods. They are real beings, intelligent beings, they lust after worship and are full of cruelty." With testimonies from Voodoo priests, followers, witch doctors and more, Understanding Haitian Voodoo is a deep observation of Haitian Voodoo through the eyes of Christian faith, molded in Haitian theology that is biblical, contemporary, relevant and transformational. From his identity as a Christian believer and as a Haitian, proud of his culture, traditions, language and customs, author Emmanuel Flix brings a remarkable contribution to a better understanding of the relationship of Voodoo to Haitian culture, to Christianity, to zombies, community life, religions and beliefs, identity and more. The final conclusion of this majestic work confirms all that man seeks is found in the Almighty God Jehovah, through Jesus Christ, and in Him alone, no matter a man's race, culture and beliefs. Whether you're planning to visit Haiti, seeking to pray more intelligently for the work of the Gospel or are simply looking to learn more about the Haitian people, this book is a must-read. Read this book prayerfully, with a Bible at your side and an eye on the realities of life in Haiti. Published by Radio 4VEH, The Evangelistic Voice of Haiti, serving God and the Haitian people through effective Christian broadcasting since 1950. Proceeds from the sale of Understanding Haitian Voodoo support the ministry of Radio 4VEH.

"It took months of God waking me up in the middle of the night before I realized I was the one He was calling to leave my comfortable American life and move to Haiti." Miracle on Voodoo Mountain is the inspirational memoir of an accomplished and driven 24-year old who quit her job, sold everything, and moved to Haiti, by herself—all without a clear plan of action. Megan Boudreaux had visited Haiti on a few humanitarian trips but each trip multiplied the sense that someone needed to address the devastation—especially with the children, many of whom were kept as household slaves on the poverty-stricken and earthquake-devastated Caribbean island. God guided her every step as she moved blindly to a foreign land without knowing the language, the people, or the future. From becoming the adoptive mother of former child slaves, to receiving the divine gift of the Haitian Creole language, to starting, building, and running a school for more than 500 children, "the amazingness of what God did after I made the choice to be obedient is incredible," said Megan. Three years later, six acres on Bellevue Mountain in Gressier is the home of the nonprofit Respire Haiti at the former site of voodoo worship, and in the area that many still come to make animal sacrifices, Megan and her staff of nearly 200 are transforming this community as they educate, feed, and address the needs.

New Orleans in the mid-nineteenth century is a city overflowing with white aristos, black creoles, and African Slaves, a city that pulses with crowds, with commerce and with the power and spectacle of the voodoo religion. At the center of the ritual is Marie Laveau, the notorious voodoiene, worshipped and feared by blacks and whites alike. Marie's followers claimed that she walked on water and sucked poison from a snake's jowls, that she raised the dead and murdered two men. Voodoo Dreams is the spellbinding story of the woman behind the legend. Raised by her Grandmère in the Louisiana bayou, Marie ventures to New Orleans and begins a journey of self-discovery, hoping to find her lost Maman and understand the visions that haunt her dreams. Instead, she runs headlong into the brutality of slavery and oppression and into the arms of John, the voodoo doctor who promises to teach her what Grandmère will not. As she falls under his spell, John sweeps Marie into a world of voodoo ceremonies, of drama and manipulation, and of sometimes terrifying power. A mesmerizing combination of history and story telling, Voodoo Dreams was Jewell Parker Rhodes first novel and a B&N Discover Great New Writers selection.

VOODOO... Many are those who believe that it is a Christian religion, since over 75% of its followers are also Catholics. But those with knowledge of that religion know that it's the opposite. Frantz knows about it all, after practicing voodoo for over 20 years, he has learned the hard way about the ungodliness and deception therein. He was taught, like many others, that voodoo was a mean to get to God. What a hoax! The majority of the voodoo priests are aware that they are working for Lucifer, but are blinded by the false promises of the devil. Here is the testimony of one: I am working for my hell, because I love my Lord Satan. In this chef-d'oeuvre, Frantz submits some of his personal, fascinating experiences, and those of his family members and friends. The author writes on topics of this subject like no one before, Zombies, for example. He explains what zombie really is, not as the Hollywood movies depict it. He unmasks the spirit of voodoo and reveals who they really are and explains possession by spirits. This book is unique! Consequently, From The Fear of Voodoo To The Fear of God, is the new, hot, must-read book of the year! Born and raise in a voodoo family in Haiti, Frantz Michel, after over 20 years in VOODOO, realized that he was duped; he was in the wrong practice. Five years after moving to the US, he gave his live to Jesus Christ in 2005 and dedicated his life to Him. He is currently a ministry leader, Mission Coordinator, and the spoke person of a council board at his local church in North Miami (Gateway Family Foursquare Church), and the editor in chief of a Newsletter for that same church (Gateway's Newsletter). He is also a proud member of the US MILITARY (reservist).

Voodoo in Haiti is a masterwork of observation and description by one of the most distinguished anthropologists of the twentieth century. Alfred Métraux has written a rich and lasting study of the lives and rituals of the Haitian mambos and adepts, and of the history and origins of their religion. It is an accurate and engaging account of one of the most fascinating and misunderstood cultures in the world. “Métraux’s book is a landmark in the serious study of Afro-Atlantic religion. The breadth and subtlety of its approach is such that it remains an essential classic of Afro-American ethnology.”—Robert Farris Thompson, professor of art history, Yale University, author of Flash of the Spirit “This is a work deserving of wide readership, and assured of it by its understanding and appeal.”—Library Journal “This book gives what is surely the most authoritative general account of that complex of belief and practice called vaudou available in the literature....No other observer of vaudou has contributed to its study the exquisite documentation of detail that marks the work of Alfred Métraux.”—Sidney W. Mintz, professor of anthropology, Johns Hopkins University

The Faces Of The Gods

Vodou, the folk religion of Haiti, is a by-product of the contact between Roman Catholicism and African and Amerindian traditional religions. In this book, Leslie Desmangles analyzes the mythology and rituals of Vodou, focusing particularly on the inclusion of West African and European elements in Vodouisants' beliefs and practices. Desmangles sees Vodou not simply as a grafting of European religious traditions onto African stock, but as a true creole phenomenon, born out of the oppressive conditions of slavery and the necessary adaptation of slaves to a New World environment. Desmangles uses Haitian history to explain this phenomenon, paying particular attention to the role of the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century maroon communities in preserving African traditions and the attempts by the Catholic, educated elite to suppress African-based "superstitions." The result is a society in which one religion, Catholicism, is visible and official; the other, Vodou, is unofficial and largely secretive.
