A provocative look at the purpose of life through a mixture of religion, science and personal experience! The Universe Within Us is a mixture of science, religion, and personal experience that offers a new, more truthful understanding of our place and purpose in the universe, and to the inevitable conclusion that every human being possess a spiritual nature. Offering insight into every thinking persons look at life, the author argues that the answers to the purpose of life have long been the domain of priests and clergy, and, more recently, scientists. The religious answers often leave the intellect out and defy what the rational mind can accept. The scientific answers satisfy the intellect at the expense of the heart and soul. Drawing on all resources available: from the sciences, from the world's sacred scriptures, and from personal observations and experiences, Harper offers a unique map of the universe, and an explanation of life's purpose that is truly satisfying.

In his latest book, Laurence Freeman shows that the basic experience of contemplation is the experience of faith and that we all need to develop this in order to become fully human. We are all capable of it - indeed we are designed for it. Freeman re-defines faith for our secular age. He draws on his wide experience and travels in the modern world to show how a new sense of the spiritual dimension can transform the way we approach education, business, mental health, the environment, inter-religious dialogue and our view of ourselves in society. Moving from this new vision and fresh thinking, illustrated vividly from his own life experience, he leads to practice. Meditation, he shows, offers an accessible and attractive antidote to the current cult of speed and distraction. He does not deny that this needs discipline but because it is radically simple it is a path that all can integrate. First Sight is the sequel to Laurence Freeman's acclaimed book Jesus: the Teacher Within.

This is the source biography of Ramakrishna (1836-1886), written by his monastic disciple, Swami Saradananda, and translated into English by Swami Chetanananda. It is derived from first hand sources including interviews with those who knew him. It is also an interpreted description of the entire range of Ramakrishna’s spiritual disciplines and experiences, explained as much as possible in terms of reason and common empirical experience, with reference to Hindu scriptures and spiritual traditions, Western philosophy, Hindu psychology, and Western religious tradition. The setting is Northeast India from 1775 to 1886. . . . for experienced meditators this book offers delightful and profound answers to deeper questions about traveling the spiritual path. . . . for scholars this book offers the source biography for Ramakrishna's life and teachings, as well as an authentic look into India's spiritual history and its various religious and philosophical traditions. . . . for those simply interested in adventure, this book provides absorbing details of the journey through consciousness of one of the greatest spiritual figures of all time. "Sri Ramakrishna was one of the greatest of India's spiritual adepts of recent times, actively embodying India's profound tradition of plurality. By assimilating the sadhanas, customs and practices of different faiths into his own personal practice, he presented a powerful example of respect for other traditions, even while maintaining a deep fidelity to his own. His transparently pure and well-documented life remains a guide and inspiration to millions on their spiritual path. I am sure many readers will be grateful to Swami Chetanananda for his English translation of Swami Saradananda's authoritative biography of Sri Ramakrishna from the original Bengali." - His Holiness the Dalai Lama "Detailed eyewitness accounts of spiritual geniuses -- whose impact on history far surpasses that of kings and potentates -- are second only to sacred scriptures in the place they occupy in the library of humanity. Now, at last, we have a splendid translation of the source biography from which all previous accounts of Sri Ramakrishna have drawn. Swami Chetanananda's long-awaited translation of Sri Ramakrishna and His Divine Play is an epic event in the unfolding saga of world spirituality." - Huston Smith, author of The World's Religions and Why Religion Matters "That someone should live so fully, burn with divine love so ardently, and teach so profoundly is very rare indeed, but it is all the more unusual to have a detailed contemporary account of such a life.. . . This extraordinary literary work communicates a real sense of Ramakrishna, his life and times." - Francis X. Clooney, SJ, Parkman Professor of Divinity, Harvard University "The life and teachings of Ramakrishna, an itinerant mystic who espoused the essential truth of all religion, speak directly to the spiritual yearning of humanity… This new translation of Saradananda's inimitable opus is a rare treasure, one that vividly re-creates the experience of being in the presence of an illumined being and reveals anew the implications of such illumination for the rest of us." - Phil Catalfo, Yoga Journal "This new translation gives us the opportunity to read the life story of this remarkable holy man . . . magnificent." - Library Journal ". . . particularly timely in its testimony of the vitality of all religions and the need for a harmonious religious pluralism." - Publishers Weekly

Visions of Hell... Over a period of thirty days, God gave Mary K. Baxter visions of hell and commissioned her to tell people still alive on earth to reject sin and evil, and to choose life in Christ. Here is an account of the place and beings of hell contrasted with the glories of heaven. Follow Mary in her supernatural journey as she enters with Jesus into a gateway to hell and encounters the sights, sounds, and smells of that dark place of torment, including its evil spirits, cells, pits, jaws, and heart. Be an eyewitness to the various punishments of lost souls and hear their shocking stories. This book is a reminder that each of us needs to accept the miracle of salvation before it is too late—and to intercede for those who do not yet know Christ. Time is running out.

The Bible - and particularly the Old Testament - is often called the world's least-read bestseller. Now, in a masterly work, John Dancy restores the Hebrew Scriptures to the reading list of the general educated public. People are often put off by the sheer bulk of the material and its uneven quality. Dancy has selected just under a third of the text of the canonical and apocryphal books, chosen for artistic merit and intrinsic interest rather than theological value. Literature of this stature should not be restricted to academics and believers. To help the reader, the text is presented in highlighted boxes, with commentary on the same page in double-column layout so that attention need never be diverted from the original. The commentary concentrates on literary matters but provides technical explanations where needed. A sensitive introduction places the Hebrew writings in the historical context of the ancient Near East.

Reveals the real, whole name of God and its place within each of us • Explains how none of the God-names commonly used in the Bible is God’s real name • Shows how the real name of God unites all religions from both West and East • Includes spiritual techniques, prayers, poems, and meditative chants to bring each of us into deep, personal, intimate, living relationship with God Of the many names of God commonly used in the Bible and other sacred literature, none is God’s real name. Every God-name, including YHWH, reflects only one of God’s many aspects, such as the loving creator, the militaristic authoritarian, or the all-knowing judge. None embodies the wholeness, the totality, the full Essence of God. Who then are we to speak to when we seek God? If you can’t truly know something until you know its name, how can we truly know God? The culmination of years of translation research and etymological investigation, Rabbi Wayne Dosick’s work digs through many layers of presumption and deeply ingrained beliefs to reveal the real name of God hiding in plain sight in the Bible: Anochi. He shows how this sacred name unites all religions--both of the West and the East. The name Anochi enables us to finally meet the whole, complete, real God--both the grand God of the vast universe and the God of breath, soul, and heart who dwells within each of us. This in-depth exploration of God’s name includes spiritual techniques, poems, guided prayers, and meditative chants to bring each of us into personal, intimate, and purposeful relationship with God. By knowing the real name of God, we can affirm the connection to the Divine at the core of our being. We can touch the face of God that resides deep within us all.

Divine revelation is one of the most fundamental of all theological questions. Indeed, some might say, if we could be clear about whether there is a revelation from God - where it is located, what form it takes, and who has the authority to interpret it - we could solve all other theological problems. Although the question of revelation is crucial, it has not received the attention commensurate with its strategic significance in theology. The seminal approaches of Barth, Rahner, and Pannenberg, for example, are conducted at such an abstract and sophisticated level as to be inaccessible to beginners, and although the work of several individual modern theologians is worthwhile, there is a significant lack of comprehensive resources on the topic. Several years in preparation, this volume aims to redress that deficiency. The contributors, originating from England, Scotland, Ireland, the United States, and Canada, represent a spectrum of religious traditions and views. The aim is to provide biblical, historical, contemporary, and reflective resources on the ways in which divine revelation has been understood in the history of Christian theology and is now understood in theological discussion. Ideal for students of theology in universities, colleges, and seminaries, for those attending training courses for the priesthood, and for lay Christians of all denominations, 'Divine Revelation' enables readers to think constructively about this vital topic in a way that is conducive to a critical, informed, and living faith.
