In Samuel chapter 28, Saul seeks to talk to the departed prophet Samuel through the "witch of Endor". She summons a spirit who talks like Samuel but who rebukes Saul and predicts his death the next day. Is this really Samuel speaking or not? This brings up theological issues. Can a person summon the dead or is it by God's power that Samuel's spirit speaks?

There is a brief thread on this subject here: Saul and the witch of Endor.
