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.
