The translation of magical power to a created image is a matter well understood in so-called 'primitive' sorcery, in which occurs a mutual embodiment of re-presentation and the Represented. The carved fetish, for example, participates a reciprocal process between object and creator that often begins long before chisels and adzes are set to wood, participating in its own reification. Many of these forms of image-making were concerned with accessing power, and it was only later, in the context of religious devotion, that their forms densified into 'mere' idols. Witchcraft and the Occult, because of their syncretic nature, partakes in multiple infusions of traditional image-making lore, including not only sorcery and religious iconography, but also science, craftsmanship, and the fine arts. However, because much of its images are used privately, and indeed created for consumption by a limited set of observers, they participate in a concentrated alembic of exposure wherein all who experience them do so in the context of magical practice and devotion. This intensity of private magical interaction provides a locus which enables the image to transcend its medium --and indeed that fetish known as 'icon'-- and generates living numen. First published in book form in 2013 and long out of print, this second edition of Idolatry Restor'd contains additional illustrations and textual expansion.

Author: David W Halivni
In this thought-provoking book, David Weiss Halivni asserts that the act of acknowledging and accounting for inconsistencies in the Pentateuchal text is not alien to the Biblical or Rabbinic tradition and need not belie the tradition of revelation. Moreover, the author argues that through recognizing textual problems in the scriptures, as well as e
Hezekiah also restored and purified the Temple and the worship of the Lord, purged idolatry from the land, and reinstituted the festival of Passover.

The text before you is an effort by the author to identify the reasons why counseling fails. He judged through his experience that too many counselees were simply walking away from counseling. They stated there had been no growth, or change, only dissatisfaction with their "life in Christ." Thus, there seemed to be a "missing" ingredient. Following a study of the principal themes of Proverbs the author become certain about what was lacking. He determined that his clients were working without 'The Fear of the Lord." Their approach lacked a sincere reverence for God and few desired to make Him preeminent. Thus failure was certain. "The Fear of the Lord" is the means by which wisdom, knowledge and understanding is bestowed; humility is gained and true charity becomes the practice of the Believer's life. Not until one truly makes God preeminent does real, biblical change: sanctification, satisfaction and true joy, become possible.
