Demons have come to kill, steal, and destroy. They take possession of lives, oppress believers and wreak havoc on the plans of God for His people. Could they be the source of YOUR struggles? Jesus did not say to counsel demons out or to medicate them out; He said, “Cast them out!” Every day, we give demons too much power when in fact, Jesus has given us authority to bind them and command them to leave. In When Pigs Move In, Don Dickerman delivers principles for deliverance, providing stories of men and women whose lives have been transformed because someone looked the devil right in the eye and commanded: “In Jesus’ name, get OUT!” Dickerman includes interviews and insight into such notable conversions as David Berkowitz (Son of Sam), Ed Ferncombe (one of Ireland’s worst criminals), and many others who have been delivered and set free.

All the sensible hogfolk in Pigdom Plains know that if pigs were meant to fly, they’d have been born with wings—but there’s no convincing Lily Leanchops. The daughter of renowned inventor Hercules Fatchops, Lily has watched her father’s flying machines fail time and time again. Working in secret, Lily is trying to build what her father couldn’t: an aircraft that actually works. And of course, she’s following his example and employing scientific principals alone—not magic. (Well, a protection spell or two doesn’t count, right?) Lily’s secret project takes on a new sense of urgency when a mysterious enemy emerges from beyond the mountains. The Warthogs are coming, and they’re piloting flying machines powered by dangerous magic spells. To save Pigdom Plains, Lily must take to the skies in her own experimental aircraft—and there’s no time for a test run.

For more than seven decades the circuses enjoyed tremendous popularity in the Soviet Union. How did the circus—an institution that dethroned figures of authority and refused any orderly narrative structure—become such a cultural mainstay in a state known for blunt and didactic messages? Miriam Neirick argues that the variety, flexibility, and indeterminacy of the modern circus accounted for its appeal not only to diverse viewers but also to the Soviet state. In a society where government-legitimating myths underwent periodic revision, the circus proved a supple medium of communication. Between 1919 and 1991, it variously displayed the triumph of the Bolshevik revolution, the beauty of the new Soviet man and woman, the vulnerability of the enemy during World War II, the prosperity of the postwar Soviet household, and the Soviet mission of international peace—all while entertaining the public with the acrobats, elephants, and clowns. With its unique ability to meet and reconcile the demands of both state and society, the Soviet circus became the unlikely darling of Soviet culture and an entertainment whose usefulness and popularity stemmed from its ambiguity.
It was early December at the North Pole when Santa awakes one morning and goes out to the Reindeer Barn and finds his trusty reindeer are gone. To add to Santa's alrarm he was shocked to find that in each stall, where his famous reindeer once were, were eight pigs. On the door of each stall was a lot of silly names that only pigs would want to be called. Santa knew he must train these pigs or the children of the world would not have a Christmas. So Santa and the piggies worked tirelessly day and night to prepare for their Christms Eve journey. The few adults and handful of children who happened to see Santa that night saw Santa and his sleigh gracefully gliding across the night sky, with eight pigs pulling the sleigh. But those who heard Santa shout encouragement to his eight sleigh-pulling pigs were surprised when he shouted out: Now Pork Chop, Now Fat Back, Now Bacon and Pinky. On Patty Cake, On Piggy, On Ham Bone and you too Stinky.
June and Jules: When Pigs Fly It's easy to remember meeting your best friend when that friend is a pig with wings. June, a hopeful young girl, and Jules, a little pink pig with tiny wings on his back, get along right from the start because each has a dream. June wants nothing more than to sing, and Jules wants to put his wings to use and y. They also share the habit of picking up pennies for good luck. The two unlikely friends can be seen all over town, with June singing as much as she can and Jules trying--and failing--to y, leaving pig-shape mud imprints wherever he goes. Although most grownups around town are less than encouraging to the pair, they have a few allies who urge them to believe in themselves. When their deteriorating downtown begins to come back to life, June tries her hardest song and Jules tries his hardest to y one more time. Their results are nothing less than amazing, showing that determination, a little faith--and two lucky pennies--make you believe that anything is possible.
