Jeane Dixon  My Life and Prophecies, Dixon, Jeane & Rene Noorbergen
4 Dixon, Jeane & Rene Noorbergen Jeane Dixon My Life and Prophecies
William Morrow 1969 0688021425 / 9780688021429 First Edition; Various Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket Signed by Author
White and blue cover, no dust or slipcase. Signed, "Blessings, Jean Dixon". Book is in Excellent Condition. Jean Dixon was one of the best-known American astrologers and psychics of the 20th century, due to her syndicated newspaper astrology column, and some well-publicized predictions and a best-selling biography. She is best known for allegedly predicting the assassination of President John F. Kennedy four years before he was elected. In the May 13, 1956, issue of Parade Magazine she wrote that the 1960 presidential election would be "dominated by labor and won by a Democrat" who would then go on to "be assassinated or die in office though not necessarily in his first term." Five years later Jeane Dixon was addressing a meeting in the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles when questioned if Robert Kennedy would ever become President. 'No,' she had answered. 'He will never become President of the United States because of a tragedy right here in this hotel.' A week later Robert Kennedy did win the California Democratic primary and he had just finished addressing a victory rally at the Ambassador Hotel's ballroom when he was shot. He died the following day. Also in January 1942 Dixon had warned the Hollywood film actress Carole Lombard (married to Clark Gable at the time) that it would be dangerous for her to travel by plane within the next six weeks. Lombard, scheduled to appear at a War Bond rally did not heed Dixon's warning, she died in an airplane crash within three days of the warning. President Richard Nixon referred to Jean Dixon as "the soothsayer" and ordered preparations for a terrorist attack that Dixon had predicted, of course the prediction did not come true during Nixon's term. She was also one of several astrologers who gave advice to Nancy Reagan during the presidency of Ronald Reagan. She died of cardiac arrest in Washington, D.C. on January 25, 1997, at the age of 93.

10 Harris, Reader Power for Service The Personality and Work of the Holy Spirit
London, England Christian Literature Crusade 1953 Sixth Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Rare copy. Very clean. Richard Reader Harris, from the Wheaton College Archives and Special Collections.Richard Reader Harris, from the Wheaton College Archives & Special Collections.Reader Harris (Reader appears to be his Christian name, though occasionally he seems to go by the name Richard Reader Harris) was born in 1847. His father was Chief Constable of Worcestershire. The younger Reader Harris became an engineering apprentice on the railways, but was desperate to travel, keeping a bag packed ready to leave immediately if need be. His chance came when Bolivia required a young engineer to develop their railways, and he spent a year there. On returning to Great Britain, he trained as a lawyer, was called to Gray’s Inn and took silk. In his spiritual journey, he had become an agnostic. However he was increasingly influenced by Christian literature, and was converted in 1884. The moment of his conversion happened, appropriately enough, on a train. He was travelling west through London, and heard the station announcement “Ealing! Ealing! Ealing!” as “Healing! Healing! Healing!” He desired that healing, committed himself to Christ, and missed his stop.; 12mo; 48 pages
