But Zaniel is facing his own very personal demons, and the past he never truly left behind...
Explore the haunted history of Salem, Massachusetts.
Demonic possession. Exorcism. Haunted Houses. Satanic Rituals. For
most people this is the stuff of nightmares, horror movies,
folklore, and superstition. For New York City police Sergeant Ralph
Sarchie, it's as real--and dangerous--as midnight patrol . . . A
sixteen-year NYPD veteran, Ralph Sarchie works out of the 46th
Precinct in New York's South Bronx. But it is his other job that he
calls "the Work": investigating cases of demonic possession and
assisting in the exorcisms of humanity's most ancient--and most
dangerous--foes. Now he discloses for the first time his
investigations into incredible true crimes and inhuman evil that
were never explained, solved, or understood except by Sarchie and
his partner. Schooled in the rituals of exorcism, and an eyewitness
to the reality of demonic possession, Ralph Sarchie has documented
a riveting chronicle of the inexplicable that gives a new shape to
the shadows in the dark.

Among the most profound questions we confront are the nature of what and who we are as conscious beings, and how the human mind relates to the rest of what we consider reality. For millennia, philosophers, scientists, and religious thinkers have attempted answers, perhaps none more meaningful today than those offered by neuroscience and by Buddhism. The encounter between these two worldviews has spurred ongoing conversations about what science and Buddhism can teach each other about mind and reality. In Mind Beyond Brain, the neuroscientist David E. Presti, with the assistance of other distinguished researchers, explores how evidence for anomalous phenomena-such as near-death experiences, apparent memories of past lives, apparitions, experiences associated with death, and other so-called psi or paranormal phenomena, including telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition-can influence the Buddhism-science conversation. Presti describes the extensive but frequently unacknowledged history of scientific investigation into these phenomena, demonstrating its relevance to questions about consciousness and reality. The new perspectives opened up, if we are willing to take evidence of such often off-limits topics seriously, offer significant challenges to dominant explanatory paradigms and raise the prospect that we may be poised for truly revolutionary developments in the scientific investigation of mind. Mind Beyond Brain represents the next level in the science and Buddhism dialogue.

The paranormal concerns happenings and experiences which defy rational or scientific explanation. Most people believe that they occur, but scientists tend to dismiss them as superstition, and the churches seem frightened of them. Experienced author, Bishop Hugh Montefiore, makes here a serious study of this fascinating subject. Never averse to controversy, he is not afraid to take on Professor Richard Dawkins, the well-known populariser of the natural sciences, who dismisses the paranormal out of hand. Here the subject is dealt with in a balanced and reasonable fashion. He cites many cases, giving reasons for and against accepting them as paranormal. Suggesting criteria by which to judge them, he leaves readers to make up their own minds, until the last chapter, where he gives his own conclusions. He ranges more widely than previous books on the subject by including the paranormal in religion. In the first part, he examines alleged cases of telepathy, precognition, automatic writing, mediums, ghosts, poltergeists and hauntings, and even astrology. In the second part, he considers the paranormal in religion, including near death experiences, exorcism and reincarnation. In the third part, he examines specifically Christian experiences, including visions and the extraordinary experiences of mystics. He even suggests that the paranormal is to be found in the scriptures. This remarkable book, which includes interviews with those who have experienced the paranormal, should prove to be irresistible reading.
