About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Scarcely any book of the year is so profoundly interesting or fitted to hold its readers with so bewitching a spell as this latest volume of the distinguished author. It shows a complete mastery of the literature of the subject, under heads of Witchcraft, Black and White Magic, Dreams, Visions, Ghosts, Divination, Possession, Magnetism, Miraculous Cures, Mysticism. It is a perfect encyclopedia of all the more significant quasi or pseudo-miraculous events or doings known to history, especially within Christendom. They are sketched in that rapid, terse and picturesque style which enchain the reader not less than the strangely exciting matters narrated. The question will naturally arise, why we notice such a book under the head of philosophy? The answer is simply that the author not only gives this immense body of facts which have hitherto baffled all attempts to solve them on any principle which commands general assent, but he classifies these facts under different heads, and attempts a rationale or philosophy of them. If not always satisfactory, we confess that he has contributed much to explain some of the most formidable phenomena in Demonology and Thaumatology, Without excluding from all these phenomena either the divine or diabolical supernatural, he shows that the following principles underlie and will serve to explain many of them. 1. Abnormal powers and susceptibilities in the doers and the subjects of them which are evoked under certain conditions. Analogous preternatural states and experiences are induced by narcotic and alcoholic stimulants, fevers, contusions of the brain, great excitements of body or mind, in susceptible subjects. These awaken, in some, the power to work and communicate, in others, the power to receive or suffer experiences quite out of the regular course of nature. This unnatural susceptibility and exaltation may easily account for a large share of the phenomena of animal magnetism, pseudo-spiritualism, clairvoyance, ghosts, second sight, visions, and other forms of magic. 2. While much in these phenomena may be thus accounted for, much more often palmed off as of this kind is due to jugglery, sleight of hand, and other forms of imposture. 3. In some cases the two elements are largely mixed. Prof. De Vere, however, goes beyond all this where we cannot follow him. His leanings in favor of communications from departed spirits with their friends on earth are quite pronounced. He connects this with expressions of opinion in favor of a second probation in an intermediate state for those who have lived and died in their sins. He thinks that during "this intermediate time there is nothing known to us which would absolutely forbid the idea that these living souls continue to maintain some kind of intercourse with the souls of men on earth, with whom they share all that constitutes their essential nature, save only the one fact of their bondage to the body . –The Presbyterian Quarterly and Princeton Review, Vol. 2.

About this Item: Helene Dallaire, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Biblical Hebrew: a Living Language is one of few textbooks that promote the use of modern methods of second language acquisition (SLA)-listening comprehension, speaking, reading and writing-for the acquisition and integration of Classical or Biblical Hebrew. For decades, Hebrew grammars have offered deductive and grammar-translation approaches to the language with success, but today s generation of students is eager to learn through interactive language pedagogy that involves listening, speaking, singing, acting, using visual tools and completing hands-on exercises. This textbook provides a variety of ideas for dynamic classroom teaching. It is designed for teachers who wish to use a blended approach in classroom instruction. Included in the chapters are oral, aural, written, performative, reading and grammar/syntax activities. Instructors who use this textbook should feel free to (1) develop creative activities for teaching the language (e.g., use videos, pictures, props); (2) use objects brought from home for spontaneous discussion in the classroom (e.g., a funny hat, kitchen utensil); (3) invite students to join them in teaching concepts (e.g., teaching assistant for a day!); (4) act out features of the language in front of the class (e.g., climbing on a desk, falling on one s knees); (5) borrow a student s object to create conversation (e.g., a coffee mug, a snack); and (6) use games for interactive learning (e.g., Jeopardy, Shimon omer). With this approach to language teaching, the sky is the limit! Biblical Hebrew: a Living Language is designed for an undergraduate or graduate/seminary level one-year introductory course. The primary goal of the textbook is to develop reading competency in the Hebrew Bible at the intermediate level. Secondary objectives include proficiency in listening comprehension, writing and speaking. Seller Inventory # APC9780998127101

About this Item: LINCOM, 2002. Softcover. Condition: Neu. Dust Jacket Condition: Gut. 1. Auflage. Intermediate Bengali is aimed at English-speaking students of the Bengali language who have completed An Introduction to Bengali: Part I, by Edward C. Dimock, Jr., Somdev Bhattacharji, and Suhas Chatterjee (2nd printing; New Delhi: Manohar, 1976) and An Introduction to Bengali: Part II, by Somdev Bhattacharji (reprinted; Chicago: Dept. of South Asian Languages and Civilizations, U. of Chicago, 1988). The present work takes for granted that the material presented in those two books has been learned already. Intermediate Bengali could be use profitably during the second year of language study in conjunction with A Bengali Prose Reader (for Second-Year Students), by Edward C. Dimock, Jr. and Somdev Bhattacharji (reprinted; Chicago: Dept. of South Asian Languages and Civilizations, U. of Chicago, 1988). In the third year, most students would do well to read diverse selections of Bengali writing such as those presented in parts two and three of An Advanced Course in Bengali, by Ernest Bender and Theodore Riccardi, Jr. (Philadelphia: South Asia Regional Studies; University of Pennsylvania, 1978); knowledge of the grammar covered in Intermediate Bengali will enhance the student's comprehension of those readings and should increase his/her reading speed. The present work draws heavily upon material in An Advanced Course in Bengali for examples of grammatical points. Each of the twenty lessons in Intermediate Bengali is divided into four sections: (1) a short selection of Bengali; (2-3) two grammar sections; and (4) useful information in or about the language. Lesson 1 is an exception to that pattern; it has been designed primarily as a review of features of pronunciation of what can be called standard modern Bengali and of the mid-nineteenth- to mid-twentieth-century form of written Bengali, known as sadhu bhasa (the perfected or pristine language). ISBN 3895865168. LINCOM Language Coursebooks 03. 440pp. 2002. Seller Inventory # B-9783895865169
