241666: Puritans vs. Witches             - Audiobook on CD Puritans vs. Witches - Audiobook on CD
By The Vision Forum, Inc

Perhaps the most godly group of Christians to populate North America were the Puritans of New England. Yet no group has been more ruthlessly villified by modern historians, and no subject more misrepresented than their infamous Salem Witch Trials. In this brilliant, scholarly presentation, Dr. Paul Jehle goes beyond the popular rhetoric to expose the truth. He reveals both the wisdom and the failures associated with the Trials, and he makes the case that God used them to lay the foundation for the greatest revival in American history - the Great Awakening. 1 CD. 64 minutes.

891767: The Witchcraft of Salem Village The Witchcraft of Salem Village
By Shirley Jackson / Random House, Inc

Stories of magic, superstition, and witchcraft were strictly forbidden in the little town of Salem Village. But a group of young girls ignored those rules, spellbound by the tales told by a woman named Tituba. When questioned about their activities, the terrified girls set off a whirlwind of controversy as they accused townsperson after townsperson of being witches. Author Shirley Jackson examines in careful detail this horrifying true story of accusations, trials, and executions that shook a community to its foundations.
