Summer of Deliverance is a powerful and moving memoir of anger, love, and reconciliation between a son and his father. Hailed as a literary genius of his generation, James Dickey created his art and lived his life with a ferocious passion. He was a heavy drinker, a destructive husband and father, a poet of grace and sensitivity, and, after the publication and subsequent film of his novel, Deliverance, a wildly popular literary star. Drawing on letters, notebooks, diaries, and his explicit conversations with his father, Christopher Dickey has crafted a superb memoir of the corrosive effects of fame, a moving remembrance of a crisis that united a family, and an inspiring celebration of love between father and son.

In this major work of historical and political analysis, Mona Harrington examines curcial missteps and uncertainties in the American statecraft from Woodrow Wilson’s time to Ronald Reagan’s, and traces them to a potent myth at the center of our political thinking. It is a myth peculiarly American, a long-held belief that the troubles of society can be traced to some specific “evil”—be it a profiteering in munitions, or the multinational corporation, or the communist conspiracy, or wasteful social programs—and that by smiting the evil we can achieve social well-being for all. The author demonstrates how deeply this dream of deliverance has been rooted in American culture from the very beginnings of the nation—in the concept of a society in which conflicts between groups of widely divergent interests can be resolved without undeserved loss to any party. We see the consequences of this belief in our continuing tendency to oversimplify issues both domestic and foreign—and in our obsessive expenditure of public energy on the search for and pursuit of the evil to be exorcised. The dilemma is further exacerbated because the country’s three major economic-interest groups—industrial wage earners, industrial owners and managers, and the cluster of interests tied to local economies—are prone to demonologies as widely divergent as their interests, and there can seldom be agreement as to the identity of the evil. How this bondage to the dream of deliverance has affected the functioning of American government—making our politics a never-ending argument whose terms have scarcely changed over the past century—is brilliant explicated. Connecting the deepest workings of statecraft to what we know about the dynamics of our own individual lives, this highly original book leads us away from a myth-driven politics and toward a difficult encounter with reality, toward liberation from the endless search for the serpent whose defeat with return us to Eden, toward a national recognition that in conditions of conflict it is not always possibly for all to emerge as winners, toward the shaping of a politics that will enable us to allocate in the most decent possible way the losses that we cannot avoid.

In recent years deliverance ministry has become increasingly difficult. Even the most seasoned ministers struggle to locate and expel demons. Individuals think they're free from demonic bondage only to be blindsided by another oppressive force. But for New York pastor Alexander Pagani, one experience changed everything. He realized how demons lodge themselves in hidden areas of our lives. First, a demon can quite literally reside in an area of the body. Second, demons can live deep in the soul and remain undetected. Deliverance is like a labyrinth with trap doors, backward stairs, and secret rooms. In The Secrets to Deliverance Pagani shares biblical strategies and his own experiences for evicting the demons in the "rooms" of your soul and body. Featuring prayers and declarations, this book will instruct you how to strategically and powerfully overtake the enemy so that you can live the life God intended for you.

The Inside Story of East Timor's Fight for Freedom

In late 1999 the world watched as a small country became the world's newest nation amid a frenzy of destruction and killing. Now, Deliverance tells the inside story of East Timor's agony, drawing on hundreds of secret documents and dozens of 'off the record' interviews with government and military insiders in Indonesia, Australia, the United States, and the UN. It paints a startling picture of Indonesia's bloody retreat from East Timor after a brutal 24-year occupation. Unparalleled access to sources in Jakarta and Canberra and many months of patient research have enabled the authors to strip away the myths and self-interested accounts to reveal in close and hitherto unreported detail the real story - from a distracted president's bold decision, to an internationally monitored ballot, to descent into the cauldron of violence and the arrival of the peace keepers. Was the murderous violence really carried out by 'rogue elements', as the Australian government would have us believe? Who in Indonesia gave the green light to the program whereby the Indonesian military, assisting the UN in supervising the referendum, were also tasked with ensuring its failure by all available means? Was PM John Howard's efforts to rally support for international action at the Auckland APEC meeting his finest hour? Could Australia have done more to avert the bloodshed? Why wasn't planning for the peacekeeping operation taken seriously in Canberra until two weeks before Interfet landed? These are just a few of the questions answered in this groundbreaking account. Deliverance is a classic of investigative journalism. If there is only one account you read of East Timor's struggle for nationhood, this should be it.
