Overview

Whisperers: The Secret History of the Spirit World by J. H. Brennan

Is it possible that major world events are affected by spirits--even if one doesn't believe in them? Can it be that everything from decisions about peace and war to the food we eat and the gods we pray to may have roots in the disembodied voices whispering in the ears of popes and prophets, politicians and prime ministers, dictators and kings?

It may seem incredible, but as J. H. Brennan reveals in this eye-opening new history, there is a wealth of evidence to suggest that such whisperings are not only possible, but that they have occurred again and again, subtly directing the course of human events.

In Whisperers, bestselling novelist and expert on the occult J. H. Brennan explores how the "spirit world"--whether we believe in it or not--has influenced our own since the dawn of civilization. With a novelist's flair and a scholar's keen eye, Brennan details the supernatural affinities of world leaders from King Nebuchadnezzar to Adolf Hitler, showing how the decisions and policies of each have been shaped by their supernatural beliefs and encounters. Brennan also examines the impact of visions, from Shamanism in native cultures to prophets such as Joan of Arc. Chronicling millennia of contact between the spirit world and our own, Whisperers presents an entirely new and different way to look at history.
