It was a commonly expressed view during the First World War that the conflict had seen a major revival of "superstitious" beliefs and practices. Churches expressed concerns about the wearing of talismans and amulets, the international press paid considerable interest to the pronouncements of astrologers and prophets, and the authorities in several countries periodically clamped down on fortune tellers and mediums due to concerns over their effect on public morale. Out on the battlefields, soldiers of all nations sought to protect themselves through magical and religious rituals, and, on the home front, people sought out psychics and occult practitioners for news of the fate of their distant loved ones or communication with their spirits. Even away from concerns about the war, suspected witches continued to be abused and people continued to resort to magic and magical practitioners for personal protection, love, and success. Uncovering and examining beliefs, practices, and contemporary opinions regarding the role of the supernatural in the war years, Owen Davies explores the broader issues regarding early twentieth-century society in the West, the psychology of the supernatural during wartime, and the extent to which the war cast a spotlight on the widespread continuation of popular belief in magic. A Supernatural War reveals the surprising stories of extraordinary people in a world caught up with the promise of occult powers.

Debate rages within the Catholic Church about the ethics of war and peace, but the simple question of why wars begin is too often neglected. Catholics’ assumptions about the causes of conflict are almost always drawn uncritically from international relations theory—a field dominated by liberalism, realism, and Marxism—which is not always consistent with Catholic theology. In The Origins of War, Matthew A. Shadle examines several sources to better understand why war happens. His retrieval of biblical literature and the teachings of figures from church tradition sets the course for the book. Shadle then explores the growing awareness of historical consciousness within the Catholic tradition—the way beliefs and actions are shaped by time, place, and culture. He examines the work of contemporary Catholic thinkers like Pope John Paul II, Jacques Maritain, John Courtney Murray, Dorothy Day, Brian Hehir, and George Weigel. In the constructive part of the book, Shadle analyzes the movement within international relations theory known as constructivism—which proposes that war is largely governed by a set of socially constructed and cultural influences. Constructivism, Shadle claims, presents a way of interpreting international politics that is highly amenable to a Catholic worldview and can provide a new direction for the Christian vocation of peacemaking.

The Great War In Russian Memory

Karen Petrone shatters the notion that World War I was a forgotten war in the Soviet Union. Although never officially commemorated, the Great War was the subject of a lively discourse about religion, heroism, violence, and patriotism during the interwar period. Using memoirs, literature, films, military histories, and archival materials, Petrone reconstructs Soviet ideas regarding the motivations for fighting, the justification for killing, the nature of the enemy, and the qualities of a hero. She reveals how some of these ideas undermined Soviet notions of military honor and patriotism while others reinforced them. As the political culture changed and war with Germany loomed during the Stalinist 1930s, internationalist voices were silenced and a nationalist view of Russian military heroism and patriotism prevailed.

The First World War has been described as the "primordial catastrophe of the twentieth century." Arguably, Italian Fascism, German National Socialism and Soviet Leninism and Stalinism would not have emerged without the cultural and political shock of World War I. The question why this catastrophe happened therefore preoccupies historians to this day. The focus of this volume is not on the consequences, but rather on the connection between the Great War and the long 19th century, the short- and long-term causes of World War I. This approach results in the questioning of many received ideas about the war's causes, especially the notion of "inevitability."

"The Nazi fascination with the occult is legendary, yet today it is often dismissed as Himmler's personal obsession or wildly overstated for its novelty. Preposterous though it was, however, supernatural thinking was inextricable from the Nazi project. The regime enlisted astrology and the paranormal, paganism, Indo-Aryan mythology, witchcraft, miracle weapons, and the lost kingdom of Atlantis in reimagining German politics and society and recasting German science and religion. In this ... history, Eric Kurlander [argues that] the Third Reich's relationship to the supernatural was far from straightforward"--

Lucan's epic poem on the civil war between Caesar and Pompey, unfinished at the time of his death, stands beside the poems of Virgil and Ovid in the first rank of Latin epic. This newly annotated, free verse translation conveys the full force of Lucan's writing and his grimly realistic view of the subject. The work is a powerful condemnation of civil war, emphasizing the stark, dark horror of the catastrophies which the Roman state inflicted upon itself. Both the introduction and glossary set the scene for readers unfamiliar with Lucan and explore his relationship with earlier writers of Latin epic, and his interest in the sensational.

In The Future War of the Church, Chuck Pierce and Rebecca Wagner Sytsema shared a vision from God. They showed lay people, intercessors and church leaders how to advance God’s Kingdom and use worship, prayer and spiritual warfare to overcome the lawlessness and violence in our society and the world during the current 7-year season of war from 2001-2008. Readers will not want to miss this revised and updated edition with a brief historical background at the beginning of each chapter, which offers an update on the prophetic words from 2001 and what came to pass. The authors urge readers to press on as the Lord is still calling His people to come against works of darkness with boldness and power from on high. "No demonic force, including lawlessness, will be able to stand against a fully functioning Body of Christ. Operating properly in the gifts will lead us back to love where we can work together according to the heart of God."

The most devastating and humbling reality a parent can experience is the death of a child. After Martha Rich's mother-in-law passed away in the late afternoon and her teenage son, William, failed to arrive home for the planning of his grandmother's memorial service, she knew something wasn't right. When the police rang Martha's doorbell at 2:30 a.m. to inform the family that William had died instantly in a head-on collision, she became aware of a presence of energy so close to her that her scalp tingled. The spirit of her son is the switch that turned this story on, and she is the circuit that carries it, but the real power lies in the miracle of life without end.

This book examines the relationship between magic, philosophy and the investigation of nature in presocratic Greece. Did the presocratic thinkers, often praised for their rejection of the supernatural, still believe in gods and the divine and the efficacy of magical practices? Did they use animism, astrology, numerology and mysticism in their explanations of the world? This book analyses the evidence in detail and argues that we need to look at each of these beliefs in context.

People have to stop with cold religious prayer and worship and enter deeply in spiritual adoration, banishing all vain words, which reflect a lack of faith, knowing that without faith, it is impossible to please God. Your holiness is hidden in your faith because in the true faith abide holiness and Gods love; without faith, there is no true holiness. If you are not receiving answers to prayer, something must be wrong in the matter of faith. That is the reason the Word of God says, Without faith, it is impossible to please God. Your possession, your title, and your position must kneel before God, not only your spirit. The way you think is what you are. Put the Word of God first; the promises of God are yours. Confess the Word in all circumstances, and you will not be ashamed if you truly believe. God didnt send anybody to destroy the sinners or the backsliders but to bring them to the light, using His love and compassion. We are not traveling with the names of backsliders but the name of Jesus. If I want to deal with such things, the Bible tells me to meet the person and talk with him, to show him the truth and pray for him and not to reject or to curse him. That is the mistake that many religious men do, and it destroys not the devil, but the work of God. Mark 9: 23 IF YOU CAN ALL THINGS IS POSSIBLE . . .
