Book Summary: The Encyclopedia covers the genre from 1920 to 1994. The genre, however, can be very confusing: films often have several titles, and many of the stars have more than one pseudonym. In an effort to clarify some of the confusion, the authors have included all the information available to them on almost 3,300 films. Each entry includes a listing of the production company, the cast and crew, distributors, running times, reviews with star ratings whenever possible, and alternate film titles. A list of film series and one of the stars' pseudonyms, in addition to a 7,900 name index, are also included. Illustrated.

Satan in the Bible, God’s Minister of Justice

Book Summary: Throughout the ages, Satan has been seen as God's implacable enemy, fiercely determined to keep as many human beings as he can from entering the heavenly kingdom. But according to Henry Ansgar Kelly, this understanding dates only from post-biblical times, when Satan was reconceived as Lucifer, a rebel angel, and as the serpent in the garden of Eden. In the Bible itself, beginning in the book of Job and continuing through the New Testament, Satan is considered to be a member of the heavenly government, charged with monitoring the human race. In effect, he is God's Minister of Justice, bent on exposing sin and vice, especially in virtuous-seeming persons like Job and Jesus. He fills the roles of investigator, tempter (that is, tester), accuser, prosecutor, and punisher, but also obstructer, preventer of vice, and rehabilitator. He is much feared and despised, accused of underhanded and immoral tactics. His removal from office is promised and his eventual punishment hoped for. The later misreading of Satan as radically depraved transformed Christianity into a highly dualistic religion, with an ongoing contest between good and evil. Seeing Satan in his true nature, as a cynical and sinister celestial bureaucrat, will help to remedy this distorted view.

Sharpening Her Pen

Book Summary: Sharpening Her Pen demonstrates how six early modern authors exploit, or evade, a rhetorical discourse founded upon images, tropes, and dialectics of violence to secure authorization for their work as writers and empowerment for the personal agendas unique to each of them. Rhetorical violence functions both as a literary phenomenon, facilitating the polemics of each author, and as an analytical methodology enabling scholars to derive meaning from a particular organic facet of a writer's intellectual structure. The subjects of the study represent a balance between writers who have received considerable scholarly attention (Elizabeth I, Aemilia Lanyer, and Lady Mary Wroth) and those who have received relatively little (Anne Askew, Anne Dorwiche, and Lade Anne Southwell). Exercising rhetorical strategies that reflect their idiosyncrasies as intellectuals, they share a canny awareness of the persuasive power, of violence in their age as physical reality and as metaphor.

Book Summary: This acclaimed fantasy classic of men, elves, and gods is at once breathtakingly exciting and heartbreakingly tragic. Published the same year as The Fellowship of the Ring, Poul Anderson’s novel The Broken Sword draws on similar Scandinavian and Anglo-Saxon sources. In his greed for land and power, Orm the Strong slays the family of a Saxon witch—and for his sins, the Northman must pay with his newborn son. Stolen by elves and replaced by a changeling, Skafloc is raised to manhood unaware of his true heritage and treasured for his ability to handle the iron that the elven dare not touch. Meanwhile, the being who supplanted him as Orm’s son grows up angry and embittered by the humanity he has been denied. A pawn in a witch’s vengeance, the creature Valgard will never know love, and consumed by rage, he will commit a murderous act of unspeakable vileness. It is their destiny to finally meet on the field of battle—the man-elf and his dark twin, the monster—when the long-simmering war between elves and trolls finally erupts with a devastating fury. And only the mighty sword Tyrfing, broken by Thor and presented to Skafloc in infancy, can turn the tide in a terrible clashing of faerie folk that will ultimately determine the fate of the old gods. Along with such notables as Isaac Asimov and Ray Bradbury, multiple Hugo and Nebula Award winner Poul Anderson is considered one of the masters of speculative fiction. This edition contains the author’s original text.

Book Summary: Blessed are the eyes that read and are allowed by Yahweh God to be unveiled. This is a mandatory two-book series for all groups of mankind. This is the one and only true gospel suppressed to your injury. It was intended to be a three-book series. However, circumstances dictated it be two. Every scrap of dogma within is 100 percent correct without exception. No man can correct, only accept or reject it. Whether Muslim, Hindu, Christian, Jew, atheist, Satanist, alternative lifestyle, military, demon, hybrid, or anything else, there are reasons for each of you to know as your lives depend upon it. You have the right to make fully informed decisions with your free will, also to change your minds at any time and the truth be there awaiting you. What is coming is the worst time in human history. Satan is required to give warning and now invoke that rule. Matthew 24:14 must be fulfilled before the end can come. “This” gospel (Gal. 1:8). We are on God’s time and no other. I have served you free for twelve years. I intend to take only what I need and use the rest to help humanity survive, being unable to buy or sell. Active true servants only. Also nature. Those who run this world want a one-world government. I am all for it—God’s kingdom. This is a leap of faith to that end, to charter a nonprofit and nation. Once I’ve recovered and set my hedge, I will be providing full transparency to all brothers worldwide, keep a 10 percent priest’s amount only if I even do that. Other than a possible accidental rewriting first-column citations, this two-book series fully destroys all of Babylon the great. People would rather sin than be part of a phallacy (not misspelled), which insults their intelligence and conscience. Not on my watch. The famine must end now. No matter who or what you are, I love you all without exception. Sex out of wedlock is no better than any other kind of fornication. Morality is not a sliding scale, nor is it code or Babylonian law. I was allowed to father Revelation 9:7–11. A half-dozen prophesies are attached to my work directly. I need bros of all professions and backgrounds to join with me in anticipation—men of action, sisters with courage, Muslims with Christians. Every soul that knows this truth must preach it verbatim. You can watch your planet die by the hands of criminals or save who you can. There is only one cause—the great commission (Matt. 28:19, 20). Only us who carry our torture stake will inherit this kingdom. This will be the worst and greatest generation of all time (Prov. 27:11). Be wise, my son, make my heart rejoice.

Book Summary: When women understand how God has empowered them, they can "wield the sword" of feminine strength against any evil that threatens them and those they love. What if you discovered you have been entrusted with an invisible, invincible, and incorruptible weapon? Would you use it? In a day of worldwide trafficking, gendercide, discrimination, and other hostility against women, Lisa Bevere points to a biblical foundation to present a model of feminine strength that will empower women to live confidently. Drawing on the many references to swords throughout Scripture, the author constructs a revealing and compelling female paradigm that will impact every area of a woman's self identity, spiritual awareness, relationships, and life vision and mission. Long known for her passionate and articulate expression of biblical womanhood, Bevere presents fresh imagery--as enticing and strong as polished steel--to prepare women boldly for the challenges they face in today's world. It's not enough to just be wise and strong: Now a woman must know how to wield her sword. Creatively forging the imagery of swords, the Word of God, and the Cross, Girls with Swords will teach you: • How to speak the language of heaven on earth • What it means to intercede • What it means to carry your cross • What it means to be discerning • How to disarm the enemy • Why women are the enemy’s target—and why God needs them to be heroes It’s time to take up your sword and be a hero.

The Human Satan in Seventeenth-Century English Literature

Author : Nancy Rosenfeld

ISBN10 : 1317028295

Publisher : Routledge

Number of Pages : 224

Category : Literary Criticism

Viewed : 453


Book Summary: Framed by an understanding that the very concept of what defines the human is often influenced by Renaissance and early modern texts, this book establishes the beginning of the literary development of the satanic form into a humanized form in the seventeenth century. This development is centered on characters and poetry of four seventeenth-century writers: the Satan character in John Milton's Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained, the Tempter in John Bunyan's Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners and Diabolus in Bunyan's The Holy War, the poetry of John Wilmot, earl of Rochester, and Dorimant in George Etherege's Man of Mode. The initial understanding of this development is through a sequential reading of Milton and Bunyan which examines the Satan character as an archetype-in-the-making, building upon each to work so that the character metamorphoses from a groveling serpent and fallen archangel to a humanized form embodying the human impulses necessary to commit evil. Rosenfeld then argues that this development continues in Restoration literature, showing that both Rochester and Etherege build upon their literary predecessors to develop the satanic figure towards greater humanity. Ultimately she demonstrates that these writers, taken collectively, have imbued Satan with the characteristics that define the human. This book includes as an epilogue a discussion of Samson in Milton's Samson Agonistes as a later seventeenth-century avatar of the humanized satanic form, providing an example for understanding a stock literary character in the light of early modern texts.

Book Summary: As the so-termed founding of Rome took place during the early Iron Age of Southern Europe, it is probable that the citizens, like their predecessors the Etruscans, originally made their blades of copper and bronze, the leaf-shape being borrowed from the Greeks, as we see it retained by the gladiators. The material would last into the Age of Steel, but even in her early years Rome must have preferred the harder metal. Pliny expressly tells us that Porsena, after his short-lived conquest, prohibited the future masters of the world from using iron except in agriculture... -from Chapter XII: "The Sword in Ancient Rome; The Legion and the Gladiator" Notorious for his global exploits-not to mention his unexpurgated translations of The Arabian Nights and the Kama Sutra-British adventurer and author CAPTAIN SIR RICHARD FRANCIS BURTON (1821-1890) was also a soldier and an aficionado of fencing, which is surely how he came about his interest in the sword. "The history of the sword is the history of humanity," Burton declares in his introduction to this classic 1884 survey of the weapon, and then goes on to explore that noble history through: [ the origin of weapons [ the ages of wood, bone, and horn [ copper weapons [ bronze and brass axes and swords [ the sword in ancient Egypt [ the sword in Babylonia, Persia, and ancient India [ the sword in ancient Greece [ the sword in ancient Rome [ and much more Profusely illustrated with beautifully detailed line drawings, this is an essential reference for anyone interested in the history of weaponry.

Book Summary: The “monumental” New York Times bestseller in which a Catholic explores the problem of anti-Semitism through Church history (The Washington Post). A Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year and a New York Times Notable Book In this “masterly history” (Time), National Book Award-winning author James Carroll maps the profoundly troubling two-thousand-year course of the Church’s battle against Judaism and faces the crisis of faith it has provoked in his own life as a Catholic. More than a chronicle of religion, this dark history is the central tragedy of Western civilization, its fault lines reaching deep into our culture. The Church’s failure to protest the Holocaust — the infamous “silence” of Pius XII — is only part of the story: the death camps, Carroll shows, are the culmination of a long, entrenched tradition of anti-Judaism. From Gospel accounts of the death of Jesus on the cross, to Constantine’s transformation of the cross into a sword, to the rise of blood libels, scapegoating, and modern anti-Semitism, Carroll reconstructs the dramatic story of the Church’s conflict not only with Jews but with itself. Yet in tracing the arc of this narrative, he implicitly affirms that it did not necessarily have to be so. There were roads not taken, heroes forgotten; new roads can be taken yet. Demanding that the Church finally face this past in full, Carroll calls for a fundamental rethinking of the deepest questions of Christian faith. Only then can Christians, Jews, and all who carry the burden of this history begin to forge a new future. “Carroll discusses the history of Christian-Jewish relations honestly, touchingly, and personally…Carroll investigates his own prejudices as a believing Christian, a former Catholic priest, and a long-time civil rights activist. As he unearths history (using all the best sources), he also encounters emotions he didn't realize he had and shows how his historical journey was also a personal pilgrimage of faith.”—Booklist “A triumph.”—Atlantic Monthly

Book Summary: Find out what happens when Lucifer's Sword Motorcycle Club goes head to head with a badass rival club in this graphic novel from a lifelong motorcycle club member. Meet Lucifer's Sword Motorcycle Club, a group of hard-riding, hard-living bikers just trying to ride their bikes in the swinging 1960s without being hassled by the man. Turns out the man is the least of their problems. While pursuing mostly harmless fun, the group runs afoul of Satanas Hermanos, a rival club from the other side of town. Before they know what hit them, the members of Lucifer's Sword find themselves embroiled in a bloody club war. As the war becomes increasingly deadly, the club finds that it's going head to head with forces much more powerful than just a rival motorcycle club. Author Phil Cross, working with illustrator Ronn Sutton and co-author Darwin Holmstrom, draws on real-life experience as a nearly 50-year member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club to bring gritty realism to this fictional story. Says Cross, "In the world of motorcycle clubs, there are some stories so raw, so gritty, so real that they can only be told as stories. This is one of them."

Book Summary: My loving intention of this book, was a dream I had of Revelation after I read it all. I was wonder how the final day s will be for each one of us before Jesus returns for the Christian s. So in my dream, I watch a couple of people living up to the moment of the rapture, and how they survive that moment. Then I had a feeling to put the dream and Revelation somewhat together before the rapture happens, and so for years I work on it. In general, it is a life story of four people out to save Christian s from the great stealing away I BELIEVE SATAN WILL TRY IN THE LAST FEW YEARS BEFORE JESUS RETURN. WHERE HE WILL OVERWHELMING WORK ON STEALING THE CHILDREN OF GOD AWAY FROM GOD. So, I thought up names and characters to tell a story of Satan s attempt to steal us away from God. These characters fi ght to fi nd a sword that has powers against all evil, and candefeat all demons attacking. These loving characters deal with the world, evil, demonic monsters, self, new loves, and their past. To complete a God given mission to save the lost Christian s pulled away from God. As they deal, and stop the plan s of demons, the Anti- Christ, and even Satan himself to save souls, and if they can do it, or not to locate the Sword of the Lamb in time to stop the demon of lie s a daughter of the main demon of lie s Satan. So, I hope you enjoy my dream, and how I put it into written word, and in turn I really hope it will bring you closer to the Father God, Son, and let the deliverer the Holy Spirit directed your life. I am sorry for my bad grammar I being a science geek, and not a writer in school. God bless you I hope you enjoy the adventures.

Book Summary: Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton (1608–1674). The first version, published in 1667, consisted of ten books with over ten thousand lines of verse. A second edition followed in 1674, arranged into twelve books (in the manner of Virgil's Aeneid) with minor revisions throughout and a note on the versification. It is considered by critics to be Milton's major work, and it helped solidify his reputation as one of the greatest English poets of his time.
