In the present volume James Robinson completes his trilogy, which deals with the history of divine healing in the period 1906-1930. The first volume is a study of the years 1830-1890, and was hailed as a standard reference for years to come. The second book covers the years 1890-1906, and was acclaimed as a monumental achievement that combines careful historical scholarship and a high degree of accessibility. This volume completes the study up to the early 1930s and, like the other two works, has a transatlantic frame of reference. Though the book gives prominence to the theology and practice of divine healing in early Pentecostalism, it also discusses two other models of healing, the therapeutic and sacramental, promoted within sections of British and American Anglicanism. Some otherwise rigorous Fundamentalists were also prepared to practice divine healing. The text contributes more widely to medical and sociocultural histories, exemplified in the rise of psychotherapy and the cultural shift referred to as the Jazz Age of the 1920s. The book concludes by discussing the major role that divine healing plays in the present rapid growth of global Christianity.

One of the greatest proponents of spiritualism was Arthur Conan Doyle, best known as the creator of Sherlock Holms. Spiritualists believe in the continuation of life after death and that we can communicate with those on the other side in ways that can be helpful. In the early 1900's there was a large Spiritualist movement taking place in the world and Doyle chose to document its entire history in this two volume set. Chapters include The Career of Eusapia Palladino, Great Mediums from 1870 to 1900, The Society for Psychical Research, Ectoplasm, Spirit Photography, Voice Mediumship and Moulds, French, German and Italian Spiritualism, Some Great Modern Mediums, The Religious Aspects of Spiritualism, The After-Life as Seen by Spiritualists, and more. To this day the movement has continued to grow, with Spiritualist churches existing around the world. Many people believe in their principles or have experienced them first-hand, making this work important to those who wish to investigate further.

Esta obra pode ser considerada a mais completa resenha de fatos psíquicos da literatura mundial, no período por ela abrangido: de Swedenborg — o grande vidente sueco do século XVIII — ao início do século XX, quando ocorre sua primeira edição inglesa, em 1926. Conan Doyle, entretanto, não se satisfaz em relatar os fenômenos que surpreenderam a humanidade com a força de uma invasão organizada, segundo suas próprias palavras. Com notável bom senso, examina os resultados da investigação cientí ca desses fenômenos, ressaltando que a autenticidade dos fatos está sempre ligada à sinceridade e ao zelo, que devem ser empregados na busca da verdade. Trata-se de obra de grande importância não só por seu notável repertório de pesquisa psíquica, mas, acima de tudo, pelo exemplo do testemunho de todos aqueles que enfrentaram o preconceito da ignorância e os ardis da má-fé para provar a sobrevivência da alma e que o amor continua indestrutível, devassando as sombras da morte.

In 1880 a young medical student named Arthur Conan Doyle embarked upon the “first real outstanding adventure” of his life, taking a berth as ship’s surgeon on an Arctic whaler, the Hope. The voyage took him to unknown regions, showered him with dramatic and unexpected experiences, and plunged him into dangerous work on the ice floes of the Arctic seas. He tested himself, overcame the hardships, and, as he wrote later, “came of age at 80 degrees north latitude.” Conan Doyle’s time in the Arctic provided powerful fuel for his growing ambitions as a writer. With a ghost story set in the Arctic wastes that he wrote shortly after his return, he established himself as a promising young writer. A subsequent magazine article laying out possible routes to the North Pole won him the respect of Arctic explorers. And he would call upon his shipboard experiences many times in the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, who was introduced in 1887’s A Study in Scarlet. Out of sight for more than a century was a diary that Conan Doyle kept while aboard the whaler. Dangerous Work: Diary of an Arctic Adventure makes this account available for the first time in a beautiful facsimile edition that reproduces Conan Doyle’s notebook pages in his own elegant hand, accompanied by his copious illustrations. With humor and grace, Conan Doyle provides a vivid account of a long-vanished way of life at sea. His careful detailing of the experience of arctic whaling is equal parts fascinating and alarming, revealing the dark workings of the later days of the British whaling industry. In addition to the facsimile and annotated transcript of the diary, the volume contains photographs of the Hope, its captain, and a young Conan Doyle on deck with its officers; two nonfiction pieces by Doyle about his experiences; and two of his tales inspired by the journey. To the end of his life, Conan Doyle would look back on this experience with awe: “You stand on the very brink of the unknown,” he declared, “and every duck that you shoot bears pebbles in its gizzard which come from a land which the maps know not. It was a strange and fascinating chapter of my life.” Only now can the legion of Conan Doyle fans read and enjoy that chapter. A special limited, numbered edition of the clothbound book is also available. In addition, a text-only e-book edition is published as Dangerous Work: Diary of an Arctic Adventure, Text-only Edition.
