Origins Of Satan And The Devil (A Christian Bible Study Series On False Doctrines Of Satan, Devils & Demons Book 2)
Origins Of Satan And The Devil (A Christian Bible Study Series On False Doctrines Of Satan, Devils & Demons Book 2)
Price: $3.99

1.0 out of 5 stars A note about Moshier’s beliefs to the prospective buyer, May 16, 2016
I read this book as part of David Moshier’s collected volume, which I purchased here at Amazon, titled “The Satan Series: A Christian Bible Study Series on False Doctrines of Satan, Devils & Demons.” (It contains three books in one - Satan Is No Angel (And Never Was), Origins of Satan and the Devil, and Demons and Devils.)

Those contemplating purchasing any of Moshier’s books on the topic of Satan and demons should know that his contentions throughout these works are that:

* Beliefs held about Satan and demons by the majority of Christians are “fictional writings of mankind.” (Demons and Devils, p. 57)

* “[T]here is no Satan,” “Satan is a “myth” and “a creature that never existed [and was] invented solely by men.” (Id., p. 56)

* The demons and unclean spirits referenced in the Bible “are just sicknesses, diseases, mental illnesses and afflications.” (Id., p. 57)

A Shroud for a Journey
A Shroud for a Journey
by Bill Casey
Edition: Hardcover
8 used & new from $0.73

5.0 out of 5 stars Winner of the Texas Institute of Letters prize for fiction, November 6, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Shroud for a Journey (Hardcover)
Bill Casey’s ‘A Shroud for a Journey’ is a treasure of American literature that lies buried and forgotten.

Published in 1960 by Houghton Mifflin Company, the book was awarded both the Jesse H. Jones Award for Fiction and the McMurray Bookshop Award for Best Texas First Novel by the Institute of Texas Letters. (The Jones award places Casey’s sole published work in the company of such literary legends as Cormac McCarthy, Larry McMurtry and Katherine Anne Porter.) But, the book did not an audience, was soon out of print, and author Bill Casey was dead by 1966 at age 35. Today, more than half a century since its sole printing, ‘A Shroud for a Journey’ is an obscure gem ripe for rediscovery.

Taking its title from a Dylan Thomas poem, and written in a style that both echoes Flannery O’Connor and anticipates Cormac McCarthy, ‘Shroud’ recounts the journey of Earl Kelly - a violent and bitter East Texas businessman - as he follows his obsession with uncovering the truth about his father’s death some 30 years earlier and whether the man was a murderer.

At the time that it was published, The Galveston Daily News said of the book: ‘This is an impressionistic story [and the] author approaches his story obliquely…seeking to develop it on several levels and with several adroitly managed time shifts [and] is apparently less interested in straightforward story telling than he is with the achievement of certain effects and certain moods and feelings.’ To 2015 audiences, ‘Shroud’ seems hardly experimental, but its 1960 readership may well have been unaccustomed to such non-linear storytelling techniques.

The bottom line is that ‘A Shroud for a Journey’ is definitely worth seeking out.

About the author: Bill Harris Casey was born May 8, 1930 in Cameron, Texas, and died on January 6, 1966 in California, while working as an assistant professor at San Jose State College. He is buried in Taylor City Cemetery in Williamson County, Texas. Of the author, the dust jacket for ‘A Shroud for a Journey’ offers: “Bill Casey…has managed to spend all his life in the Lone Star State, including two years in the Air Force. He was educated at Sam Houston State College and at the University of Texas where he plans to take his Ph.D. in June 1960…Like any good Texan, he enjoys hunting, fishing, playing the guitar and – of course – poker.”

The Haunting of Bishop Pike: A Chrisitan View of the Other Side
The Haunting of Bishop Pike: A Chrisitan View of the Other Side
by Merrill Unger
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars For those seeking Biblical truths regarding spiritism/spiritualism, mediums and psychics, December 1, 2014
I would definitely recommend “The Mystery of Bishop Pike: A Christian View of the Other Side” by the late Merrill F. Unger (a professor at Dallas Theological Seminary) to those seeking Biblical truths regarding spiritism/spiritualism, mediums and psychics.

James A. Pike (1913-1969) was an Episcopalian bishop in the State of California from 1958 until 1966, the year his son committed suicide. Following his son’s death, Pike began experiencing what he believed were attempts by his son to communicate with him from beyond the grave. This led Pike to seek the counsel of spiritualists, resign his position as a church bishop, and become a firm believer in what author Merrill F. Unger described as “communication of the living with the dead by means of an intermediary or medium” (Unger, p. 45). Three years later, in 1969, Pike was found dead from exposure in the Judean Desert, where he and his wife had been traveling via an unreliable automobile.

In this 115 page book, Unger (1909-1980) uses the story of Pike’s final three years as a vehicle for: (1) examining the beliefs Pike came to embrace during that period; and (2) providing a Biblically-based study of why communicating with the dead (which Unger insists “should not be dismissed by Christians as mere fraud or fancy”) is a “dangerous spiritual reality, energized not by the Holy Spirit, but by spirits belonging to the realm of evil supernaturalism…to be strictly avoided as God-dishonoring and perilous to the soul” since it offers a “diabolical perversion of the good news of forgiveness of sin through Christ’s atoning death” (Unger, pp. 45-46 and p. 49).

2.0 out of 5 stars Lid does not fit coffin, October 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have given this item two stars because, while it is sturdy and impressively detailed, the lid of the coffin is not cut to allow the lid to rest flush atop the coffin. I notice that a reviewer named "Butterfly" had the same issue. (Wish I'd seen her review prior to purchasing this product.) Rather disappointing.
