Book Summary: Non Nobis, Domine, from the author of The Axioms of Being and the Renaissance of the Templars Religion and spirituality have been portrayed as products of superstition and fear of the unknown. The tenets of religion are considered to be the antithesis of science. Science, on the other hand, is knowledge verified in experience, i.e. knowledge that passed the rigid test of the scientific method. But both science and religion rely on faith. Science bases its inquiry on fundamental axioms considered to be self-evident, which are, therefore, statements of faith. And religion relies almost exclusively on faith; its dogmas are eternal truths of the spirit that must be accepted, even if they cant be verified in experience. This book is about the Postulate of Faith and its application in science and spirituality. Science and religion no longer have to be mortal enemies as long as they hold on to their respective methods of searching for the truth

You Are the Mystery

Book Summary: Joan and David Zink have woven for us an essential and timely fabric from the present-day research tracing the dynamic development of the concept of psycho-integration. Through the exploration by psychologist of the phenomena associated with demonstrable alteration in skin temperatures and the cardiovascular responses to central control, we have come to that point where "bio-feedback" is available to the individual as a signpost for improving his own state of well being through his own intentional and conscious control. Thus the paths of insight into the unconscious have now broadened. We are each given the possibilities of accepting responsibility for our own growth and understating of our own levels of consciousness. By their scholarly and critical reviews of the literature, beginning with the insights of Freud and Jung and expanding since WWII through clinical physiologists' sources of bio-feedback, Joan and David Zink have clearly delineated for us the problems of the mind-body dichotomy. Rational acceptance of functional psycho-integration is now available for further exploration and for clinical applications. Of special value are the chapters expanding and simplifying the evidence of the importance to man of his own inner development with discovery of his own powers in spiritual understanding and self-direction. Current research has provided a meeting ground for Occidental and Oriental philosophies. Occidental man will thereby be enabled to pursue the development of his highest self and to achieve his own individual understanding of his place in the Greater Universe.

The Brothers Karamazov

Author : Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Publisher : BookRix

Category : Fiction

Book Summary: The Brothers Karamazov is the final novel by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky. The Brothers Karamazov is a passionate philosophical novel set in 19th century Russia, that enters deeply into the ethical debates of God, free will, and morality. It is a spiritual drama of moral struggles concerning faith, doubt, and reason, set against a modernizing Russia. Dostoyevsky composed much of the novel in Staraya Russa, which inspired the main setting. Since its publication, it has been acclaimed as one of the supreme achievements in literature. The Brothers Karamazov displays a number of modern elements. Dostoyevsky composed the book with a variety of literary techniques. Though privy to many of the thoughts and feelings of the protagonists, the narrator is a self-proclaimed writer; he discusses his own mannerisms and personal perceptions so often in the novel that he becomes a character. Through his descriptions, the narrator's voice merges imperceptibly into the tone of the people he is describing, often extending into the characters' most personal thoughts. In addition to the principal narrator there are several sections narrated by other characters entirely, such as the story of the Grand Inquisitor and Zosima's confessions. This technique enhances the theme of truth, making many aspects of the tale completely subjective.

The Viper on the Hearth

Book Summary: Nineteenth-century American writers frequently cast the Mormon as a stock villain in such fictional genres as mysteries, westerns, and popular romances. The Mormons were depicted as a violent and perverse people--the "viper on the hearth"--who sought to violate the domestic sphere of the mainstream. While other critics have mined the socio-political sources of anti-Mormonism, Givens is the first to reveal how popular fiction, in its attempt to deal with the sources and nature of this conflict, constructed an image of the Mormon as a religious and social "Other."

Book Summary: The darkly handsome man gazes deeply into her eyes. She finds him irresistible, wants to experience the passion of the moment. He grins--the movie audience can see his lengthened lateral incisors--and bends to her neck. The eroticism is horrible, and compelling. Audiences are drawn to horror cinema much as the surrendering victim. Afraid to watch, but more afraid something will be missed. Since the horror film is the most primal of all movie genres, seldom censored, these films tell us what we are about. From the silent era to the present day, Dark Romance explores horror cinema's preoccupation with sexuality: vampires, beauty and the beast, victimization of women, "slasher" films, and more. Separate chapters focus upon individuals, like Alfred Hitchcock and Barbara Steele. Entertaining, and thought-provoking on the sexual fears and phobias of our society.

Book Summary: Catch your breath and sit for a moment. Now listen . . . What do you hear--questions of trust, longing, disappointment, courage, and love? In Longing for More, Timothy Willard invites us to think and pray through our deepest needs, and explores how the ebb and flow of life can be used for God's glory. Creatively organized in 52 chapters that follow the four seasons of the year, the daily readings point the way to a richer spiritual life. "Timothy Willard is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers. His poetic words and soul-reaching insights leave me longing for more--more beauty, more depth, more Jesus, which is exactly what this book offers."--Sarah Mae, author of Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe "There are sacred moments when life catches you up in its beautiful mystery. Suddenly everything feels heavy and connected. You want to weep and cheer at the same time. You come away empowered, fully alive. Timothy sets you down in these moments. Get caught up in them and watch yourself come to life." --Lacey Sturm, platinum-selling musician and author of The Reason: How I Discovered a Life Worth Living
