Award-winning historian Mary Beth Norton reexamines the Salem witch trials in this startlingly original, meticulously researched, and utterly riveting study. In 1692 the people of Massachusetts were living in fear, and not solely of satanic afflictions. Horrifyingly violent Indian attacks had all but emptied the northern frontier of settlers, and many traumatized refugees—including the main accusers of witches—had fled to communities like Salem. Meanwhile the colony’s leaders, defensive about their own failure to protect the frontier, pondered how God’s people could be suffering at the hands of savages. Struck by the similarities between what the refugees had witnessed and what the witchcraft “victims” described, many were quick to see a vast conspiracy of the Devil (in league with the French and the Indians) threatening New England on all sides. By providing this essential context to the famous events, and by casting her net well beyond the borders of Salem itself, Norton sheds new light on one of the most perplexing and fascinating periods in our history.

Best-selling author, university professor, and beloved pastor of a mega-church in Los Angeles, Kenneth Ulmer exposes The Devil s Snare so you can stop the constant tug-of-war struggle between worshiping God and worrying about finances. We worry, worry, worry (about money), and yet we love Jesus. There is no need to worry. The Devil s Snare explains what lurks behind most Christians misunderstanding of money, riches, finances, and material possessions. Also revealed is the mysterious, insidious power that influences your desires for money and possessions. No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (Matthew 6:24 NKJV). Expertly and practically examined is the stronghold of mammon operating in the lives of many Christians, exposing its many distorted faces and lures. There is hope: You can jump out of the same old money rut of feeling like you re worth more than you re being paid or that you can never quite get ahead financially. You can understand the unseen force holding you back financially no matter how much money you earn or try to save. You can approach spending, earning, and saving in an entirely new way. God can break away The Devil's Snare from you today!
