About this title:

Far from being a religion defined by rituals of peace, and love and salvation, Christianity has a dark side which historically embraced the imprecatory arts—rituals of cursing and malediction. Beginning with God’s curse upon Adam, Eve, the Serpent, and their descendants, the religion of Jesus Christ embraces a rich tradition of cursing and casting evil upon others, even if largely unacknowledged. The magic of hate and harm had a special place amongst the learned clergy, whose traffic with angels and demons is also known through the historical genre of grimoires, the so-called ‘Black Books’ of European necromancy. Drawing upon the Bible, as well as non-canonical scriptures and folk traditions, Anathema Maranatha examines the rich history of Christian malediction, from curses to blight farmland to magical operations meant to cause a building to collapse, to invoking the saints for the destruction of one’s enemies.

    Martin Duffy has done an impeccable job with this book. Researching & Presenting his work on malevolent & petty petitions to god within Christianity itself. One perfect example being from the very start, where a young Jesus, although still the son of god being simply cast as a human, yet beneath the surface something else drives what follows. A young Jesus bestowed with great power begins to curse and sanctimoniously kill those who seemingly are guilty of only trivial transgressions against him, mostly amounting to nothing more than annoying the young Jesus. Duffy cleverly lays down a simple albeit commonly overlooked thought, that being if you’re ever in any need to use baneful magic or perhaps send a curse, by just calling upon the Christian faith it will be done in a truly spectacular fashion.

    For me this book throws shade in the right way, and calls out the common and quite glaring hypocrisies within the Abrahamic religions. 8/10
