In this finely written study of demonology and Christian spirituality in fourth- and fifth-century Egypt, David Brakke examines how the conception of the monk as a holy and virtuous being was shaped by the combative encounter with demons. Drawing on biographies of exceptional monks, collections of monastic sayings and stories, letters from ascetic teachers to their disciples, sermons, and community rules, Brakke crafts a compelling picture of the embattled religious celibate.

Daoist Identity is an exploration of the various means by which Daoists over the centuries have created an identity for themselves. Using modern sociological studies of identity formation as its foundation, it brings together a representative sample of in-depth analyses by eminent American and Japanese scholars in the field. The discussion begins with critical examinations of the ways identity was found among the early movements of the Way of Great Peace and the Celestial Masters. The role of sacred texts and literary culture in Daoist identity formation is discussed. The volume then focuses on lineage formation and the increasing role of popular religious practices, such as spirit-writing, in modern Daoism since the Song dynasty. Finally it discusses the Daoist adaptation and reinterpretation of Buddhist rites, such as the feeding of souls in hell and the use of ritual gestures, and the changes made in contemporary Daoism in relation to traditional rites and popular practices.

Bo Hardy had been discharged from the Navy SEAL program after being injured in an attempt to rescue a mother and her five-year-old daughter being sought by a group of Taliban troops whose intent was to capture, torture and murder both mother and daughter because the mother had converted to Christianity. The rescue mission was doomed before it was begun because of flawed intelligence. The Taliban knew where the mother was hiding and knew of the forthcoming attempt to rescue the mother and little girl. The mother, daughter and Bo’s best friend were all killed before Bo was able to take out the fifteen Taliban troops. Fearing that Bo would expose the flawed intelligence and embarrass certain people, Bo was unceremoniously drummed out of the Navy to come home to a corrupt hometown. Wounded from the land mine that killed his best friend, Bo now has a new enemy to fight in the form of one Frank Tucker. It is difficult to tell if Frank is evil, deranged, or a little bit of both.
