With its mysterious animal gods, mummies, pyramids, ornate tombs and arcane rites, the world of the ancient Egyptians continues to fascinate us. Religion and Magic in Ancient Egypt is the first book to provide a complete historical overview of the beliefs of this extraordinary civilization, dating from its earliest settlements in 5000 BCE to the Roman province of the fourth century ACE.
As Rosalie David's engrossing study shows, every aspect of ancient Egyptian society, from education and law to medicine, birth and death, was permeated by religion and magic, and dominated by the divine life forces of the sun and the Nile. We discover the complex and intriguing world of gods and goddesses, from Anubis the jackal-headed god of death to Tauert the hippopotamus-goddess of childbirth; the cult of sacred animals; the world of oracles and seers; temples, death rituals, and the afterlife. Concluding with a glossary of pharaohs, queens and deities, and new translations of Egyptian spells, this is an esential work for all studnets of history and Egyptology, and an informative, entertaining read for anyone with an interest in the ancient world.

This sixth volume selects documents illustrating family relations, slavery, the Roman administration and army, medicine and magic. Text and translation are now printed facing each other on the page. Full indexes are also provided. The new editor, Stephen Llewelyn, is engaged as a Macquarie University Research Fellow to continue production of the New Documents series. His doctoral dissertation was in the area of the Synoptic Problem and the application of statistical methods to solve it.

In the world of publishing, few successes have equaled that of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series--magical stories centered on one boy's adventures at Hogwarts, a school for witchcraft and wizardry. Yet this popular series presents a perplexing--even divisive--challenge to the Christian community. Although the book presents a clear picture of the epic battle between good and evil, they appear to support the use of magic and have had a controversial impact on our culture. As a result, many of us are wondering, "How should I respond to this Harry Potter thing?" In this book, you'll explore the valid concerns some Christians have about the series, sort out the fact and fiction at the center of the debate, discover biblical answers that may surprise you, and learn how you can tap into this powerful cultural phenomenon to help advance the kingdom of God.
