DID THE DEVIL MAKE ME DO IT? The Purpose and Premise of this book. The Purpose: The book was not written simply to offer proof of the existence of the Devil, or to just characterize his behavior. It was written to offer a deep and detailed study on his existence, yes, but also on his origin, objectives and role in the affairs of human beings. Further, it was written to lay out the evidence of his involvement and offer biblical strategies to defeat his efforts to destroy the human family. The Premise: if mankind is enlightened enough to acknowledge the Devil's existence, recognize his actions of evil toward them as individuals and mankind in general, defeat him in their daily walk of experience by relying on God's Word and the Holy Spirit, as did Jesus, they can and will live abundant, peaceful and fulfilling lives. The Book explores question such as: Is the Devil real or a myth? Who is the Devil? What are his intentions toward Man? How can humans protect themselves from his attacks? Does human nature play a part in mankind's involvement with evil? What does human nature and evil have in common? Why hasn't the Devil been destroyed? Why do the righteous suffer? How to be blessed in the midst of the Devil? How to overcome both the Devil and self?

Tales of the country’s original criminals—and how the courts punished them for their misdeeds Scarlet Letters, wanton dalliances, Sabbathbreaking, and debt: Colonial laws were easily broken and the malefactors who broke them, swiftly punished. How did our ancestors deal with murder and mayhem? How did seventeenth- and eighteenth-century New England communities handle deviants? How have definitions of criminal behavior and its punishment changed over the centuries? What were early prisons like? What were the duties of a turn-key? Find out all this and more in The Devil Made Me Do It. Drawing on early court dockets, diaries, sermons, gaolers’ records, and other primary sources, Juliet Haines Mofford investigates historical cases from a time when accused felons often pleaded in their own defense: “The Devil made me do it!” Among the questions that emerge in this fascinating book: Would spinster Sarah Booker be punished today for her 1769 theft of three skeins of linen yarn? Would Joan Andrews still get a T for Theft pinned upon her bodice for cheating a client by placing two stones in the firkin of butter she sold him?

If it wasnt the Devil, then who is to blame for the ungodly thoughts and behaviors which plague many Christians? Has rebellion become rampant in the church, or are there dark forces working in the shadows, warring against Gods people? This book presents Biblical principles needed for a Christian to survive and thrive while living in a hostile world. It answers many questions such as: ?? Has God really forgiven me? ?? How does your body, soul and spirit function? ?? Does the supernatural world influence my life? ?? Can a Christian be demonized? ?? What is stopping me from doing what I know is right? ?? What two kingdoms are at work in the world today? The heart of the Father is that His children walk in health, abundance, and total freedom from the forces of the world, the flesh, and the Devil. The Devil Made Me Do It exposes how these forces may be working in your life and sets forth a detailed formula explaining the steps to follow when sin and demonic strongholds invade your life. Jesus prayed, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Are you doing, here on the earth, what the Father is doing in heaven? If not, then read this book, get yourself free, and go fulfill your destiny. Heaven is waiting for you! www.outskirtspress.com/devilmademedoit

The problem that her very own Fairy Godmother, the Prophetess Mother Reed, struggles with is getting her to live like it. Briggs Stokes is the reluctant heir to his father's worldwide, multimillion-dollar televangelist ministry, yet he yearns to be his own man. His past mistakes have caused him a private life of hurt and loneliness. Esther and Briggs meet and develop a deep soul connection, until tragedy strikes and the two are thrust apart. Their separation leads each down a different path scattered with emotional minefields. While each step they take brings them closer to who they were always meant to be, the devil is on assignment. He sends in reinforcements to usher in confusion and create chaos, and soon no one is safe. The members of Love Zion church reel from the rumors, innuendo, and downright sabotage that is going on around them.

The Devil Made Me Do It is a collection of biographical anecdotes that highlight mostly humorous moments in the life of a born Hoosier and his network of friends and family. It is not a book written for the masses but rather a scrapbook of narratives that will appeal to those with a taste for honest humor and mostly benign real life mischief of the seemingly well-adjusted neighbor next door. The Devil Made Me Do It will also appeal to local historians and folklorists of the Hoosier state, and particularly those of Monroe and Owen Counties, with its personal narratives that offer glimpses into the post-war life of the region through the eyes of a native.

Thinking is hard - yet barely a waking moment passes when we're not labouring away at it. A few of us may be natural geniuses, able to work through the toughest tangles in an instant; others, blessed with reserves of willpower, stay the course in the dogged pursuit of truth. Then there's the rest of us. Not prodigies and a little bit lazy, but still aspiring to understand the world and our place in it. What can we do? In Intuition Pumps, Daniel Dennett, one of the world's most original and provocative thinkers, takes us on a profound, illuminating and highly entertaining philosophical journey. He reveals a collection of his favourite thinking tools, or 'intuition pumps', that he and others have developed for addressing life's most fundamental questions. Along with new discussions of familiar moves - Occam's Razor, reductio ad absurdum - Dennett offers cognitive tools built for the most treacherous subject matter: evolution, meaning, consciousness and free will. In his genial style, Dennett guides readers around the pitfalls in arguments, and reveals easier ways to better understand the world around us and our place in it. An enlightening and practical store of knowledge, Intuition Pumps and Other Tools for Thinking will teach you to think truly independently and creatively. [Praise for Daniel Dennett's Freedom Evolves]: 'This is a serious book with a brilliant message' Matt Ridley, Sunday Telegraph 'Dennett has produced the most powerful and ingenious attempt at reconciling Darwinism with the belief in human freedom to date' John Gray, The Independent 'An outstandingly good book. There is no better philosophical exponent of what evolutionary biology really means' The Times Daniel Dennett is one of the most original and provocative thinkers in the world. A brilliant polemicist and philosopher, he is famous for challenging unexamined orthodoxies. His books include Brainstorms, Brainchildren, Elbow Room, Consciousness Explained, Darwin's Dangerous Idea and Freedom Evolves. He lives in North Andover, Massachusetts.

The Devil Within

A fascinating, wide-ranging survey of the history of demon possession and exorcism through the ages. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the era of the Reformation, thousands of Europeans were thought to be possessed by demons. In response to their horrifying symptoms—violent convulsions, displays of preternatural strength, vomiting of foreign objects, displaying contempt for sacred objects, and others—exorcists were summoned to expel the evil spirits from victims’ bodies. This compelling book focuses on possession and exorcism in the Reformation period, but also reaches back to the fifteenth century and forward to our own times. Entire convents of nuns in French, Italian, and Spanish towns, thirty boys in an Amsterdam orphanage, a small group of young girls in Salem, Massachusetts—these are among the instances of demon possession in the United States and throughout Europe that Brian Levack closely examines, taking into account the diverse interpretations of generations of theologians, biblical scholars, pastors, physicians, anthropologists, psychiatrists, and historians. Challenging the commonly held belief that possession signals physical or mental illness, the author argues that demoniacs and exorcists—consciously or not—are following their various religious cultures, and their performances can only be understood in those contexts. “Riveting [and] readable . . . must-reading for students of history, psychology and religion.” —Publishers Weekly “Levak, a distinguished historian of early modern witchcraft, now sets exorcism in a long historical perspective, providing the most comprehensive and scholarly overview of the theme yet published.” —Peter Marshall, Times Literary Supplement
