"Hell is empty, and all the devils are here." -Shakespeare, The Tempest As soon as the financial crisis erupted, the finger-pointing began. Should the blame fall on Wall Street, Main Street, or Pennsylvania Avenue? On greedy traders, misguided regulators, sleazy subprime companies, cowardly legislators, or clueless home buyers? According to Bethany McLean and Joe Nocera, two of America's most acclaimed business journalists, the real answer is all of the above-and more. Many devils helped bring hell to the economy. And the full story, in all of its complexity and detail, is like the legend of the blind men and the elephant. Almost everyone has missed the big picture. Almost no one has put all the pieces together. All the Devils Are Here goes back several decades to weave the hidden history of the financial crisis in a way no previous book has done. It explores the motivations of everyone from famous CEOs, cabinet secretaries, and politicians to anonymous lenders, borrowers, analysts, and Wall Street traders. It delves into the powerful American mythology of homeownership. And it proves that the crisis ultimately wasn't about finance at all; it was about human nature. Among the devils you'll meet in vivid detail: • Angelo Mozilo, the CEO of Countrywide, who dreamed of spreading homeownership to the masses, only to succumb to the peer pressure-and the outsized profits-of the sleaziest subprime lending. • Roland Arnall, a respected philanthropist and diplomat, who made his fortune building Ameriquest, a subprime lending empire that relied on blatantly deceptive lending practices. • Hank Greenberg, who built AIG into a Rube Goldberg contraption with an undeserved triple-A rating, and who ran it so tightly that he was the only one who knew where all the bodies were buried. • Stan O'Neal of Merrill Lynch, aloof and suspicious, who suffered from "Goldman envy" and drove a proud old firm into the ground by promoting cronies and pushing out his smartest lieutenants. • Lloyd Blankfein, who helped turn Goldman Sachs from a culture that famously put clients first to one that made clients secondary to its own bottom line. • Franklin Raines of Fannie Mae, who (like his predecessors) bullied regulators into submission and let his firm drift away from its original, noble mission. • Brian Clarkson of Moody's, who aggressively pushed to increase his rating agency's market share and stock price, at the cost of its integrity. • Alan Greenspan, the legendary maestro of the Federal Reserve, who ignored the evidence of a growing housing bubble and turned a blind eye to the lending practices that ultimately brought down Wall Street-and inflicted enormous pain on the country. Just as McLean's The Smartest Guys in the Room was hailed as the best Enron book on a crowded shelf, so will All the Devils Are Here be remembered for finally making sense of the meltdown and its consequences.

Stop mindlessly inhaling the breadbasket and stop shoveling in the M&M'S-Bread is the Devil is the solution to all of our diet saboteurs. Nutritionist Heather Bauer can count on the fingers of one hand the number of her clients who don't already know what they should eat to lose weight. So why can't they (and their best friend and their neighbor) lose weight? Because Bread is the Devil! Yes, that's Bauer's shorthand for the inevitable, demonic pull that certain bad habits exert on people who try to change their eating routines to drop the pounds. Many of us have been there: You had a sensible, healthy breakfast, high in protein with complex carbs. Ditto for lunch-soup and a salad with a warm rush of accomplishment and self control for dessert. But now it's dinnertime and you're out with friends: enter a large basket of warm, sliced, crusty sourdough bread with a little tub of chive butter. Suddenly you're in the seventh circle of hell-the one reserved for gluttons. Bread's not your devil? How about ice cream or chips or that big slab of buttercream-frosted birthday cake? Bread Is the Devil will help you fight those hellish cravings that stop you from losing the weight you want. By identifying how certain factors promote overeating, Heather will: * Identify the top-ten Diet Devils that challenge healthy eating * Provide specific, proven strategies that free you from these devils once and for all * Offer up a simple, flexible guide that will help you reach your goal in twenty-one days and make eating fun again * Suggest an easy, affordable, and doable shopping list for eating at home as well as great meal choices when eating out Bread is the Devil will help you say good-bye to your devils, for good.

Tried therapy? Tried prayer? Jesus the Deliverer gave this Christian psychologist a surprising answer!This book tells the story of how God taught me, as a practicing psychologist, to confront demons in my clients.It was ten o'clock at night. I was alone in my office with a client. There was no one else in the building. My custom with believing Christians was to close in prayer, surrendering the therapy to God and asking him to carry it through to completion. On an impulse, I took her hand as I prayed. I had sensed she needed a human touch to support her. That's when it happened! I had just begun to intercede before God, asking him to help her overcome the fear and anxiety that troubled her. Suddenly a shrieking, evil voice interrupted my prayer: "SHE BELONGS TO ME, AND I AM NOT LEAVING! STOP BOTHERING ME! LEAVE ME ALONE BECAUSE I LIKE LIVING HERE! YOU ARE SO ANNOYING!" A shiver ran up and down my spine. I stiffened and opened my eyes. She looked like she was praying, but the voice coming out of her mouth was taunting me. I realized I was still holding her hand and I didn't know what to do. My first impulse was to drop her hand and fling it away, but something inside me made me stop. That was my first personal encounter with a demon. It happened forty-eight years ago and it caught me totally off-guard! Ever since that night, God has been instructing me, in the office where I have my own private practice, how to uncover the demons in my clients and how to help get rid of them. This book describes how God taught me to see through Satan's psychological disguises and the remarkable adventure that ensued as he has brought me face to face with humanity's personal enemies in the spiritual realm. He trained me in spiritual warfare that I may teach others as well.

Angels, Spirits, principalities, powers, gods, Satanthese, along with all other spiritual realities, are the unmentionables of our culture. The dominant materialistic worldview has absolutely no place for them. But materialism itself is terminally ill, and, let us hope, in process of replacement by a worldview capable of honoring the lasting values of modern science without succumbing to reductionism. Therefore, we find ourselves returning to the ancient traditions, searching for wisdom wherever it may be found. We do not capitulate to the past and its superstitions, but bring all the gifts our race has acquired along the way as aids in recovering the lost language of our souls. In Naming the Powers I developed the thesis that the New Testament's principalities and powers is a generic category referring to the determining forces of physical, psychic, and social existence. In the present volume we will be focusing on just seven of the Powers mentioned in Scripture. Their selection out of all the others dealt with in Naming the Powers is partly arbitrary: they happen to be ones about which I felt I had something to say. But they are also representative, and open the way to comprehending the rest. They are: Satan, demons, angels of churches, angels of nations, gods, elements, and angels of nature.

WARNING: THREATS TO YOUR CHILD AHEAD! Losing your child’s heart to the perverse world of a sexual predator is truly every parent’s nightmare. When an $800 cell phone bill revealed a secret relationship between our highachieving, Sunday School teaching 15 year old daughter, Kalyn, and a 46 year old man from our congregation, we were horrified. The aftermath of destruction, as it usually is with sexual abuse, was disastrous. Rebellion, depression, wrong relationships, eating disorders, and selfmutilation suddenly turned home into a war zone. In Kalyn’s mind we, her parents, were her enemies while the sexual perpetrator remained her hero. How could something so bizarre happen in a loving Christian home?

The Book of Revelation was meant to ignite awe and worship. There is a special blessing promised to all who read and obey the words of Revelation (1:3). Yet many Christians slam their Bible shut before reading because they find the end times prophecy to be confusing, weird, and even scary. Revelation was never meant to be feared or skipped over. In Unmasking Revelation, Sam Chess walks through how Jesus left first century Christians with the hope of His return, and how the letter of Revelation was given as a guide to how it all would end. Jesus was going to victoriously win and satan, and death, and hell, and even the curse of sin itself (22:3) would be purged off this planet! Through Unmasking Revelation, the difficult parts of Revelation become understandable, and the weird and frightening are “unmasked” to simply unfold the storyline of Jesus’ (and Christians’) final triumphant victory.

"There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils!" warned the widely respected C. L Lewis. "One is to disbelieve in their existence! “The other is to believe and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them!" Father Juan Cortes was a psychology professor at Georgetown University! This was where The Exorcist was filmed! He said that all cases of possession he's studied can readily be explained away in modern scientific terms! Today's science can also explain, according to Cortes, the old Biblical accounts of "casting out devils!" Reverend Donald Basham, an ordained Disciples of Christ minister and others vigorously disagree! Basham claims a full one-fourth of Jesus Christ's ministry was solely devoted to casting devils out of possessed people! This man is a long-time counselor. He's able, "by taking authority over a demon," to achieve quickly what months of counseling failed to accomplish! Taking this authority over a demonic spirit is quite simple! The exorcist must only do it "in the name of Jesus!" Or "on the blood of Jesus!" In Acts 16:16, the Apostle Paul was on his way to prayer when he met a psychic, "a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination!” Paul couldn't seem to rid himself of this pesky girl! She continued following him for days! In Acts 16:18, Paul finally lost patience with the diviner! He became quite upset over her persistent antics! Paul promptly turned on the girl! He unhesitatingly cast out the evil spirit of divination, or fortune-telling! How did Paul execute this deed? He simply said: "I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her!" And the spirit was expelled! Almost instantaneously! Most theologians agree that Jesus Christ believed in demons! In Mark 1:21, Jesus drove evil spirits out of a man in the synagogue of Capernaum! Billy Graham supports the view that Jesus acted as God's exorcist! He offers Matthew 12:28 as evidence! Philip performed numerous miracles while he was in Samaria. This man of God is known to have exorcised quite a few evil spirits. These "unclean spirits" came forth from the possessed people "crying with a loud voice." The evil entities are believed to have been both baffled and enraged at being deprived of their dwelling place. "Many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed" by Philip's elementary act of forcing the demonic spirits to leave their human vessel! "It is possible to cast demons out of physical bodies!" declared the late Kathryn Kuhlman, noted television evangelist and healer."Young people have a right to be frightened of the possibility of possession! "Demons are a highly organized system of evil spirits hostile to God and men," charged Evangelist Leighton Ford, a long-time member of the Billy Graham team. “Demons are messengers of Satan! “Wholly given over to evil! A youthful Holiness minister, a dubious Catholic priest, and a skeptical Southern Baptist evangelist formed an unlikely trio of exorcists! They'd come together in an effort to try to help young, pitiful Karen Kingston! They would temporally lay aside their theological differences! They would join hands in mortal combat against the raging forces of Satan! Ten people experienced a horrifying three days in contact with a dangerous group of evil entities! Ten people came away from the chilling experience with a strengthened faith in God! Ten people witnessed a miracle!

The Silk Road, which linked imperial Rome and distant China, was once the greatest thoroughfare on earth. Along it travelled precious cargoes of silk, gold and ivory, as well as revolutionary new ideas. Its oasis towns blossomed into thriving centres of Buddhist art and learning. In time it began to decline. The traffic slowed, the merchants left and finally its towns vanished beneath the desert sands to be forgotten for a thousand years. But legends grew up of lost cities filled with treasures and guarded by demons. In the early years of the last century foreign explorers began to investigate these legends, and very soon an international race began for the art treasures of the Silk Road. Huge wall paintings, sculptures and priceless manuscripts were carried away, literally by the ton, and are today scattered through the museums of a dozen countries. Peter Hopkirk tells the story of the intrepid men who, at great personal risk, led these long-range archaeological raids, incurring the undying wrath of the Chinese.

Angels And Demons In Art

This sumptuously illustrated volume analyzes artists' representations of angels and demons and heaven and hell from the Judeo-Christian tradition and describes how these artistic portrayals evolved over time. As with other books in the Guide to Imagery series, the goal of this volume is to help contemporary art enthusiasts decode the symbolic meanings in the great masterworks of Western Art. The first chapter traces the development of images of the Creation and the Afterworld from descriptions of them in the Scriptures through their evolution in later literary and philosophical works. The following two chapters examine artists' depictions of the two paths that humans may take, the path of evil or the path of salvation, and the punishments or rewards found on each. A chapter on the Judgment Day and the end of the world explores portrayals of the mysterious worlds between life and death and in the afterlife. Finally, the author looks at images of angelic and demonic beings themselves and how they came to be portrayed with the physical attributes--wings, halos, horns, and cloven hooves--with which we are now so familiar. Thoroughly researched by and expert in the field of iconography, Angels and Demons in Art will delight readers with an interest in art or religious symbolism.
