Joan of Arc... Witch? Saint? Agent of the devil? Holy warrior? Accused of being the devil’s pawn in 1430, Joan of Arc was eventually burned at the stake for witchcraft. But was she really a witch?
At seventeen years of age, she remains the youngest supreme military commander (male or female) in history, and the most attested person up to the sixteenth century. Her well documented accomplishments are universally accepted. Her story attracts Protestants, Catholics, and non-believers alike. But HOW was she able to save France during the 15th century? After all, women’s rights weren’t exactly in the forefront at that time. For Joan, the answer was never complicated. She was sent by God. And not just any god, but the God of the Bible. Could this really be true? If so, then there is much to learn from her story.
In Joan of Arc and the God of the Bible-THE WITCH THAT WASN'T, author Chris Snidow examines the many parallels and similarities between Joan and the prophet/saints of the Bible, providing striking and undeniable evidence between these powerful witnesses for God. Her prayer-centered life, humble spirit, interactions with God's messengers, bold actions, love of God, unlikely but consistently fulfilled prophesies…these are all traits seen in the great prophet/saints of Scripture. Joan was the game-changer of her time and place, and after her, France would forever be free of the English, and take its influential place in European history.
People have wrestled with the supernatural aspects of Joan of Arc’s case for centuries. But here and now, during this time of increasing New Age spirituality, Mr. Snidow’s scripturally based examination reveals Joan as a powerful witness for the Triune God of the Bible. She was the witch that wasn’t!
This book first appeared in 2006 under the title Joan of Arc and the God of the Bible. A French version followed in 2009. In 2013, the Revised and Expanded Edition came out, full of numerous additional quotes, examples, references and information. Now this 2014 edition, The Witch That Wasn't, provides still more relevant and new information, along with a number of other improvements. And as with the previous editions, the never-ending attempt to make the final manuscript as reader-friendly as possible remains a primary goal.
