Season In Mecca: narrative of a pilgrimage, Abdellah Hammoudi.
1 Abdellah Hammoudi. Season In Mecca: narrative of a pilgrimage
New York: FSG Adult 2006 0809076098 / 9780809076093 1st Hard bound New New 14.6 x 2.7 x 21.5 cm 
In 1999, the Moroccan scholar Abdellah Hammoudi, trained in Paris and teaching in America, decided to go on the pilgrimage to Mecca. He wanted to observe the hajj as an anthropologist but also to experience it as an ordinary pilgrim, and to write about it for both Muslims and non-Muslims. Here is his intimate, intense, and detailed account of the Hajj--a rare and important document by a subtle, learned, and sympathetic writer. Hammoudi describes not just the adventure, the human pressures, and the social tumult--everything from the early preparations to the last climactic scenes in the holy shrines of Medina and Mecca--but also the intricate politics and amazing complexity of the entire pilgrimage experience. He pays special heed to the effects of Saudi bureaucratic control over the Hajj, to the ways that faith itself becomes a lucrative source of commerce for the Arabian kingdom, and to the Wahhabi inflections of the basic Muslim message. Here, too, is a poignant discussion of the inner voyage that pilgrimage can mean to those who embark on it: the transformed sense of daily life, of worship, and of political engagement. Hammoudi acknowledges that he was spurred to reconsider his own ideas about faith, gesture, community, and nationality in unanticipated ways. This is a remarkable work of literature about both the outer forms and the inner meanings of Islam today.

Advance Praise "From his pulpit at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, Alan Jones has influenced for good an entire continent of struggling Christians. In this provoking and helpful new book, he extends his voice to those both within and beyond the Church. A thinking Christian in a thoughtless world is what he is and what he aims to make us. This is a very good start." -- The Reverend Professor Peter J. Gomes The Memorial Church, Harvard University, and author of The Good Book "It used to be that Christian institutions and systems of dogma sustained the spiritual life of Christians. Increasingly, spirituality itself is what sustains everything else. Alan Jones is a pioneer in reimagining a Christian faith that emerges from authentic spirituality. His work stimulates and encourages me deeply." -- Brian D. McLaren, pastor (crcc.org) and author of A New Kind of Christian "This is a bracing breath of spiritual fresh air, an intelligent, witty, and passionate reclaiming of the goal of religious practice-the conversion of the heart to kindness and peace as the common faith in which we can all be believers." -- Sylvia Boorstein, author of Pay Attention, for Goodness' Sake and It's Easier Than You Think "Alan Jones is the best guide I know to lead us on the thorny but promising path that could lead to the renewal of Christianity." -- Sam Keen, author of Fire in the Belly "Compulsively readable, Alan Jones's book is a brave and brilliant attempt to res-cue Christianity from the clutches of the cruel reactionaries into which much of it has fallen. Generous-hearted Christians of all persuasions will cheer him on." -- The Most Rev. Richard Holloway, retired as primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church and Bishop of Edinburgh "Alan Jones combines the power of the mystical, the honesty of the skeptical, and the eagerness of the romantic. His vision of faith and ministry for the time to come will be a gift for many readers." -- Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Georgia "A daring call to renew our relation to Christianity-and ourselves-through fac-ing the great questions of the heart that today permeate the life of every serious seeker and the life of our whole endangered world." -- Jacob Needleman, author of The American Soul and Lost Christianity

Surviving in an Angry World: Finding Your Way to Personal Peace, Charles F. Stanley.
4 Charles F. Stanley. Surviving in an Angry World: Finding Your Way to Personal Peace
New York: Howard Books 2010 1439183562 / 9781439183564 1st Hardbound New New 6 x 0.9 x 9 inches Author autographed book.
The premise of this book is that learning to let go of anger—and ultimately forgiving the offender—will transform the foundation of every kind of relationship we have. Stanley defines anger as "a strong feeling of intense displeasure, hostility, or indignation as a result of a real or an imagined threat or insult, frustration, or injustice toward yourself or towards someone who’s very important to you." Building on this defintion, Stanley... 1. Helps readers identify the signs of anger, so they can identify anger in themselves. 2. Reveals the far-reaching consequences of anger, which encompass the spiritual, emotional, and physical. 3. Teaches readers how to handle anger through thirteen concrete steps. 4. Walks readers through the steps to true forgiveness and the healing power it brings. With compassion and a wealth of biblical understanding, Stanley explains that the measure of a person is "the size of thing that makes them angry." He goes on to distinguish between healthy and harmful anger and reminds us that "righteous indignation" is a divine emotion. However, he skillfully explains that misguided anger eats away at ourselves, our relationships with others, and our relationship with God. By helping readers look honestly at the source of their anger, he gently leads them to the ability to truly forgive and find the peace they seek.

For almost seven and half centuries a piece of cloth was venerated because it bore the image of the crucified Christ, but results of carbon dating have shown that the fabric could not have pre-dated 1260. Now new evidence conclusively proves that it is not a fake...yet neither is it the image of Jesus Christ. In the follow-up to their ground-breaking first book, 'The Hiram Key', Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas continue their research into the mysteries of Freemasonary and the true historical Jesus, and uncover the precise time and place of the shroud's creation. Using the latest scientific techniques they explain the strange molecular chemistry that created this unique artifact, and in solving the riddle of the shroud, they unravel a far greater mystery: how the shroud links directly to Jesus. The answer to the great mystery of the Shroud of Turin will surprise and astonish as the authors unlock the secrets of abandoned Freemason rituals and the man who would be called the Second Messiah!

In Defense of Faith: The Judeo-Christian Idea and the Struggle for Humanity, David Brog.
6 David Brog. In Defense of Faith: The Judeo-Christian Idea and the Struggle for Humanity
New York: Encounter Books 2010 1594033803 / 9781594033803 Hard bound New New 1.5 x 6.5 x 9.5 inches 
Religious faith is under assault. In books, movies, and on television, secular critics are attacking religion and the religious with ever-increasing intensity. These "new atheists" typically repeat a two-part mantra: They claim that only an idiot could believe in God, and that idiots who do so have been responsible for most of the hate and violence that have plagued humanity. Abandon religion, they urge, and the world will finally know peace. Surprisingly few books have emerged to defend faith from this onslaught. Yet when it comes to this second argument-the behavior of religious people in the world-abstract claims can be tested by reference to objective facts. In Defense of Faith examines the historical record and demonstrates that far from encouraging hate and aggression, the Judeo-Christian tradition has been the West's most effective curb on these dangerous defects of human nature. In Defense of Faith asserts that the belief in the sanctity and equality of all humans at the core of both Judaism and Christianity-what Brog calls the "Judeo-Christian idea"-has been our most effective tool in the struggle for humanity. The Judeo-Christian idea, Brog argues, has provided the intellectual foundation for human rights. Even more importantly, he maintains, the Judeo-Christian idea has repeatedly inspired the faithful to devote their lives to, and often risk their lives in, the fulfillment of these high ideals. In Defense of Faith also convincingly demonstrates that when we abandon religion as the critics urge, peace does not break out. Instead, we quickly revert to the most base instincts of our selfish genes. Written by a Jewish author who works closely with the Christian faith community, In Defense of Faith will appeal to secular and religious readers alike. This book will challenge the secular to reconsider the role of religion in Western civilization. It will inspire the religious to embrace a proud legacy of faith in action for the sake of humanity.

Revelation, History, and the Dialogue of Religions: A Study of Bhartrhari and Bonaventure (Faith Meets Faith), David Carpenter.
7 David Carpenter. Revelation, History, and the Dialogue of Religions: A Study of Bhartrhari and Bonaventure (Faith Meets Faith)
New York: Orbis Books 1995 1570750394 / 9781570750397 Paper back Like New Not issued 15.3 x 1.4 x 23 cm 
The claim to possession of revealed truth is not unique to any single religion, nor confined to the so-called "axial" ("world") religions. But what kind of work is necessary before a term like "revelation" can be used in comparing two religious traditions - and to what end? What does the problem of revelation have to do with the history of religions, and the plurality of religions?In Revelation, History, and the Dialogue of Religions David Carpenter, an expert in medieval Catholic theology as well as Indian religious thought, approaches the doctrine of revelation in the writings of the medieval Christian theologian, St. Bonaventure, a prime exemplar of Logos theology, and of Bhartrhari, a classical Indian grammarian and philosopher of language who is an analogous figure in the Hindu religious tradition. In examining and comparing the writings of these two figures from two distinct traditions and cultures, Carpenter explores the phenomenon of revelation as a dynamic, linguistically-mediated process that needs to be located within the historical horizons of the religious traditions in which it is found.

The Future of God: A Practical Approach to Spirituality for Our Times, Deepak Chopra.
8 Deepak Chopra. The Future of God: A Practical Approach to Spirituality for Our Times
New York: Harmony 2014 030788497X / 9780307884978 Hard bound New New 6.4 x 1 x 9.6 inches 
From the New York Times Bestselling Author. Can God be revived in a skeptical age? What would it take to give people a spiritual life more powerful than anything in the past? Deepak Chopra tackles these issues with eloquence and insight in this book. He proposes that God lies at the source of human awareness. Therefore, any person can find the God within that transforms everyday life. God is in trouble. The rise of the militant atheist movement spearheaded by Richard Dawkins signifies, to many, that the deity is an outmoded myth in the modern world. Deepak Chopra passionately disagrees, seeing the present moment as the perfect time for making spirituality what it really should be: reliable knowledge about higher reality. Outlining a path to God that turns unbelief into the first step of awakening, Deepak shows us that a crisis of faith is like the fire we must pass through on the way to power, truth, and love. “Faith must be saved for everyone’s sake,” he writes. “From faith springs a passion for the eternal, which is even stronger than love. Many of us have lost that passion or have never known it.” In any age, faith is a cry from the heart. God is the higher consciousness that responds to the cry. “By itself, faith can’t deliver God, but it does something more timely: It makes God possible.” For three decades, Deepak Chopra has inspired millions with his profound writing and teaching. With The Future of God, he invites us on a journey of the spirit, providing a practical path to understanding God and our own place in the universe. Now, is a moment of reinvigoration, he argues. Now is moment of renewal. Now is the future.

The Still Small Voice: Psychoanalytic Reflections on Guilt and Conscience, Donald L. Carveth.
9 Donald L. Carveth. The Still Small Voice: Psychoanalytic Reflections on Guilt and Conscience
London: Karnac Books 2013 1780491689 / 9781780491684 1st Paperback New 0.8 x 6.2 x 9 inches 
Whereas Freud himself viewed conscience as one of the functions of the superego, in The Still Small Voice Carveth argues that superego and conscience are distinct mental functions and that, therefore, a fourth mental structure, the conscience, needs to be added to the psychoanalytic structural theory of the mind. Carveth views the therapeutic task as the disempowerment of the superego. Following Jean-Jacques Rousseau, he finds the roots of morality not in reason but in feeling, in sympathetic identification or “pity.” Such “reasons of the heart” form the core of conscience. The author claims we must face our bad conscience, acknowledge and bear genuine (depressive) guilt, and through contrition, repentance and reparation come to accept reconciliation and forgiveness, or be forced to suffer the torments of the damned―persecutory guilt inflicted by the sadistic internal persecutor and saboteur, the superego. It is the author’s view that in human history the damage done by id-driven psychopaths amounts to nothing compared to that brought about by superego-driven ideologists. While aware of its destructiveness in the clinical realm, psychoanalysts have largely ignored the ideologies of domination―the sexism, racism, heterosexism, classism and childism―that are internalized from unconscionable societies into the unconscionable superego.

Toronto: Key Porter Books 2007 1552638863 / 9781552638866 1st Paper back New 21.5 x 13.9 x 1.8 cm 
The 9/11 attacks shattered the image of Islam as a wholly peaceful faith, raising the possibility that this seemingly new struggle between East and West is just the latest variant of a much older contest between Islam and the non-Islamic world. In Relections on Islam, award-winning author George Jonas addresses a range of questions about Islam: Is there a difference between Islam and Islamism? Was it a mistake to invade Iraq or simply a mistake to stay? These provocative, elegant essays showcase Jonas at his best on a topic of enormous importance.

God's Mechanics: How Scientists and Engineers Make Sense of Religion, Guy Consolmagno.
12 Guy Consolmagno. God's Mechanics: How Scientists and Engineers Make Sense of Religion
San Francisco: Jossey-Bass 2008 0787994669 / 9780787994662 1st Hard bound New New 6.3 x 1 x 9.3 inches 
In God's Mechanics, Brother Guy tells the stories of those who identify with the scientific mindset—so-called "techies"—while practicing religion. A full fledged techie himself, he relates some classic philosophical reflections, his interviews with dozens of fellow techies, and his own personal take on his Catholic beliefs to provide, like a set of "worked out sample problems," the hard data on the challenges and joys of embracing a life of faith as a techie. And he also gives a roadmap of the traps that can befall an unwary techie believer. With lively prose and wry humor, Brother Guy shows how he not only believes in God but gives religion an honored place alongside science in his life. This book offers an engaging look at how—and why—scientists and those with technological leanings can hold profound, "unprovable" religious beliefs while working in highly empirical fields. Through his own experience and interviews with other scientists and engineers who profess faith, Brother Guy explores how religious beliefs and practices make sense to those who are deeply rooted in the world of technology.

Jesus and Yahweh: The Names Divine, Harold Bloom.
13 Harold Bloom. Jesus and Yahweh: The Names Divine
New York: Riverhead (HC) 2005 1573223220 / 9781573223225 1st Hard bound New Shows slight shelf wearing 15.9 x 2.4 x 23.5 cm 
Harold Bloom has written about religion and the Bible throughout his career, but now, with Jesus and Yahweh, he has written what may well be his most explosive, and important, book yet. There is very little evidence of the historical Jesus-who he was, what he said. As Bloom writes, "There is not a sentence concerning Jesus in the entire New Testament composed by anyone who ever had met the unwilling King of the Jews." And so Bloom has used his unsurpassed skills as a literary critic to examine the character of Jesus, noting the inconsistencies, contradictions, and logical flaws throughout the Gospels. He also examines the character of Yahweh, who he finds has more in common with Mark's Jesus than he does with God the Father of the Christian and later rabbinic Jewish traditions. Bloom further argues that the Hebrew Bible of the Jews and the Christian Old Testament are very different books with very different purposes, political as well as religious. Jesus and Yahweh is a thrilling and mind-opening read. It is paradigm-changing literary criticism that will challenge and illuminate Jews and Christians alike, and is sure to be one of the most discussed, debated, and celebrated books of the year. At a time when religion has come to take center stage in our political arena, Bloom's shocking conclusion, that there is no Judeo-Christian tradition-that the two histories, Gods, and even Bibles, are not compatible-may make readers rethink everything we take for granted about what we believed was a shared heritage.

The Brother Of Jesus: The Dramatic Story & Meaning of the First Archaeological Link to Jesus & His Family, Hershel Shanks & Ben Witherington  III.
14 Hershel Shanks & Ben Witherington III. The Brother Of Jesus: The Dramatic Story & Meaning of the First Archaeological Link to Jesus & His Family
New York: Harperone 2003 0060556609 / 9780060556600 1st Hard bound New New 15.2 x 2.3 x 22.9 cm 
For 2,000 years we've gone without archaeological EVIDENCE of Jesus and his family . . . until now . . . This is the dramatic inside story of what may well be the most momentous archaeological discovery of our time: the first-century ossuary of Jesus' brother, James, the head of the Jerusalem church. Reportedly found just outside ancient Jerusalem, the fragile limestone burial box bears the inscription "James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus." The ossuary and its inscription are now regarded as authentic by top scholars in the field; they represent the first visual, tangible, scientific evidence of Jesus' existence. The implications are monumental for understanding Jesus, his family, and the Jewish Christian movement during the formative years of Christianity. Hidden for centuries, the ossuary was purchased many years ago by an Israeli collector of ancient artifacts who never suspected its importance. Only when the renowned French scholar André Lemaire saw the Aramaic inscription (Aramaic was the language spoken by Jesus and his earliest followers) in April 2002 was its significance discovered. In October 2002, Lemaire announced the news to the world, asserting that it was almost certain that the inscription referred to Jesus of the Bible, his father Joseph, and his brother James. Controversy immediately erupted over the age and authenticity of the inscription. The discovery also rekindled an ancient debate over whether Mary, the mother of Jesus, was a virgin throughout her life -- a doctrine that still divides Catholics and Protestants. Hershel Shanks, a central figure of biblical archaeology, who led a forceful campaign to make the Dead Sea Scrolls available to the world, recounts the story of the ossuary's discovery and authentication. Ben Witherington III, a leading New Testament scholar, shows how the discovery reveals surprising facts about a story people thought they knew: How Jesus was raised in a large, religiously conservative Jewish family; how his brothers and sisters were skeptical about his claims -- until he died; how Jesus' brother James went on to head the Jewish Christian movement in Jerusalem, becoming the leader Peter and Paul looked to for guidance and approval; how James brokered the major church controversy of the first century and wrote a book of the Bible; how he was martyred and soon written out of history by the Church of Rome. The dramatic discovery of the ossuary allows us to get reacquainted with the towering historical figure the apostle Paul called a "pillar of the church."

The Reluctant Prophet: An Exploration of Prophecy and Dreams, James Kirsch.
15 James Kirsch. The Reluctant Prophet: An Exploration of Prophecy and Dreams
Los Angeles: Sherbourne Press 1973 0820201561 / 9780820201566 1st Hardbound New New (Slight signs of shelf wearing) 8.9 x 6.2 x 0.9 inches 
The events in Germany from 1933 to 1945 have shaken the world, and especially the Jewish people, to their fundaments. The great holocaust that spread throughout Europe came as such a surprise that even while the terror was following its cruel path, many Jews did not believe what was actually happening. Many did not try to escape when the time and opportunity would have allowed it. In contrast, there are historians today who, describing the psychological, economic, political, and social conditions of Central Europe between the two world wars, find that the tragedy was predictable and inevitable. If one compares these two attitudes — the blindness of the victims in Germany and the clear-sightedness of later historians — one wonders if in fact an event of such magnitude had been foreseen by sensitive men. The truth is, there were such men who, long before the catastrophe occurred, raised their warning voices. They were not well known men, or men of great authority, to whom it would have been natural to listen. One of them was an orthodox rabbi in a small Bavarian town. In 1881 Rabbi Elchanan Pinchas Moshe Haim, called Reb Hile Wechsler, published an anguished and strange brochure, "A Word of Warning," which told of a forthcoming catastrophe that in its horror and totality of destruction could only be compared to Noah’s flood. Now that Jewish communities have vanished from many European countries, we can realize that Wechsler’s document of prophecy is an important psychological "find," and is rich in implication. This tragic tapestry is rich in myth, symbol, and historical relevance and deserves a close study. The prophecy came true, but was the rabbi a true prophet? Why did no one listen to him? Why did he feel compelled by his dreams to write about and publish them, no matter how much he would be ridiculed or subjected to contempt? James Kirsch, a distinguished scholar, original thinker, and noted Jungian analyst, takes on the rabbi’s manuscript, his dreams and the far-reaching scope of prophetic symbols, breathes excitement and relevance into them, and provides a meaningful study that touches our history, our dreams, and our art.

New York: HarperOne 2008 0061553395 / 9780061553394 1st Hardbound New New 6 x 0.8 x 9 inches 
Everyone loves a good ghost story. Perhaps the human fascination with the supernatural stems from the fact that most of us, at some point in our lives, have experienced something we couldn't quite explain. From a very young age James Van Praagh was aware of a dimension that most of us cannot see, and he has dedicated his life to explaining it to the rest of us. Ghosts Among Us takes us on an incredible journey into the spirit world that brings to light one of our greatest mysteries—what happens to us after we die? Van Praagh, the New York Times bestselling author and co-executive producer of the CBS series The Ghost Whisperer, shares his knowledge and life experience about ghosts, a subject that can seem to many of us both bizarre and terrifying. But when the world beyond is explained fully by an experienced guide, dismissal and apprehension can be turned into knowledge and inspiration. With incredible true ghost stories and surprising details about how ghosts actively participate in our lives, Van Praagh challenges us to question our perceptions and shows us how we can live more fully through understanding the world of spirits. Including eerily accurate readings, the author's development as a medium, and detailed how-to information, Ghosts Among Us is an all-encompassing guide to the supernatural.

Jerusalem is the most famous city on the planet, a place vibrantly imagined even by people who have never been there. Karen Armstrong, author of the best-selling A History of God, shows why it might also be the most interesting, a sacred ground for rival Christians, Jews and Muslims. Much of her book is devoted to 5,000 years of history, but all of it addresses a longstanding and contemporary fascination unmatched by any other urban center.

The moving story of her own search for God by the highly-acclaimed author of the bestselling A History of God: The 4,000-Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity and Islam; The Battle for God: A History of Fundamentalism; and Islam: A Short History. In 1969, after seven years as a Roman Catholic nun -- hoping, but ultimately failing, to find God -- Armstrong left her convent. She knew almost nothing of the changed world she was entering, and she was tormented by panic attacks and inexplicable seizures. Her struggle against despair was fueled by a string of discouragements -- failed spirituality, doctorate and jobs, fruitless dealings with psychiatrists -- but finally, in 1976, she was diagnosed with epilepsy and given proper treatment. She then began the writing career that would become her true calling, and as she focused on the sacred texts of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, her own true inner story began to emerge. She would come to experience brief moments of transcendence through her work -- the profound fulfillment that she had not found in the long hours of prayer as a young nun. Powerfully engaging, often heart-breaking, but lit with bursts of humour, The Spiral Staircase is an extraordinary history of self.
