Catherine O'Brien draws on the structure of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy to explore Martin Scorsese's feature films from Who's That Knocking at My Door (1967-69) to Silence (2016). This is the first full-length study to focus on the trajectory of faith and doubt during this period, taking very seriously the oft-quoted words of the director himself: 'My whole life has been movies and religion. That's it. Nothing else.' Films discussed include GoodFellas, The Last Temptation of Christ, Taxi Driver and Mean Streets, as well as the more recent The Wolf of Wall Street. In Dante's poem in 100 cantos, the Pilgrim is guided by the poet Virgil down through the circles of Hell in Inferno; he then climbs the steep Mountain of the Seven Deadly Sins in Purgatory; and he finally encounters God in Paradise. Embracing this popular analogy, this study envisions Scorsese as a contemporary Dante, with his filmic oeuvre offering the dimensions of a cinematic Divine Comedy. Drawing on debates at the heart of religious studies, theology, literature and film, this book goes beyond existing explorations of religion in Scorsese's work to address issues of sin and salvation within the context of wider debates in eschatology and the afterlife.

As the divine economy is the salvation of the whole world through the Gospel, which has but one definition in all the Bible: (Rom. 1: 16), "The dynamite of God unto salvation unto every one that believes it." Dynamite is the greatest mechanical powerin all the world, the only thing that can blow the devil and everything he put in us, out of us and save us from a devil's hell. Christ was made manifest to destroy the works of the devil. ( 1 John 3: 8.) While angels would be delighted to preach this Gospel, God in His infinite wisdom has committed it to the people whom it has already saved, as none others are competent to preach it. To preach means to proclaim. When it is simply a verbal statement, anyone who has the physical and vocal ability, canserve. as the King's herald; go out and proclaim His message to His subjects.

All Sagittarians are charming, intelligent, and adventure-seeking, but which day of the month you're born on can determine the way in which you use those traits to your best advantage. In this exciting new book, master astrologer Phyllis Vega gives a detailed analysis for each birthday in the year, combining astrology and numerology to paint a true picture of the characteristics, desires, and destinies of people born on that day. If you were born October 5th, you're a skilled negotiator with a gift for making money. But if you were born just four days later, you're a compassionate dreamer with spiritual inclinations. Aries is the sign of the determined ram, but if you were born on April 7th, you are idealistic and inspiring.
