Religions for Peace (USED)

$4.99
More Info
In this heartfelt, cogently argued manifesto, Francis Cardinal Arinze addresses one of the most important issues of our time-the compelling need to foster understanding and respect among followers of different religious beliefs.
The shocking attack on New York City and Washington, D.C., forced the leaders of every faith to face hard-hitting questions about the role of religion in a world increasingly torn apart by unrest, violence, and war. All religions of the world extol peace, yet in many instances religious beliefs are seen as the very source of humanity's conflicts. In "Religions for Peace," Cardinal Arinze explores what the various religions can do to actually promote peace.
As the head of the Pontifical Council for Inter-Religious Dialogue, Cardinal Arinze has met with religious leaders from around the world. Drawing on his vast experience and his deep-seated faith, he offers insights and ideas that could prove to be the catalyst for a new era of inter-religious cooperation the world so desperately needs. He writes on issues ranging from safeguarding the world's children, to protecting the environment, to promoting efforts for disarmament. At its core, his message emphasizes that the fundamental requirement for peace is respect for the human right to religious freedom.
Written by one of the important religious leaders in the world today, "Religions for Peace" provides thoughtful, real-life answers to questions that once seemed highly abstract. Resounding with a refreshing awareness of people of all backgrounds, it is a book that is needed more than ever today.

Remember Jesus Christ (USED)

$5.99
More Info
What place does Christ have in our modern society? Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, the preacher to the papal household, posed that question in a series of Advent and Lent meditations presented to Pope Benedict XVI. In Remember Jesus Christ, which is based on these meditations, he explains that in order to bring people to Christ today, the Church needs to proclaim, as simply and succintly as the apostles did, that "Jesus Christ is Lord!" And the essential core of that proclamation is the passion and death of Jesus, because the cross of Christ is the supreme proof of God's love for us. Scripture, personal testimonies, and allusions to works of art reinforce Cantalamessa's powerful and prophetic message, leaving readers with hope and expectant faith in the future of Christianity in the modern world. About the author: Fr. Ranierio Cantalamessa was born in Italy in 1934 and was ordained a Capuchin Franciscan priest in 1958. He taught at the Catholic University of Milan until 1979. In 1980 he was appointed as preacher to the papal household by Pope John Paul II. He still serves in that capacity, preaching a weekly sermon during both Lent and Advent in the presence of Pope Benedict XVI. He is a frequent and popular speaker at international conferences and ecumenical conferences and rallies.

Revelation

$16.00
More Info
On a Grecian island nearly 2,000 years ago, the God of all creation left mankind His final will and testament. That is, His will for mankind and a personal testimony of His only Son. We know His testimony as the Book of Revelation or the Revelation of Jesus Christ. By whatever name we recognize it, the Book of Revelation has become synonymous with an apocalyptic ending of the earth, often referred to as Armageddon. The tale of woe begins with four horsemen representing prophetic harbingers of God's wrath upon mankind for its wickedness and disobedience. Out of this narrative comes one chapter of doom and gloom after another. But is it?On one chilly November morning back in 2017, nearly 2,000 years after it was given, the Lord of Hosts opened the Book of Revelation to me, a 58 year old man with no formal theological education. Just an obedient and faithful son with a heart after God. No different than you perhaps. This isn't about me however. This is about the truth which has been hidden in plain sight for two millennia. This is about the life of Jesus Christ and what He did in heaven and on earth 2,000 years ago, and what will be done in heaven and on earth when He returns. "Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven" (Matt 6:10). The four horsemen have nothing to do with apocalypse. There are no two witnesses appearing on earth prior to His return. There is no tribulation, no rapture, and no mark of the beast in the hand or forehead. And it doesn't end there. We've been deceived. Take a walk with the truth and me. You won't regret it.THIS IS THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST!

Scholars of such note as ecclesiologist Francis A. Sullivan, theologian Robert Imbelli, biblical scholar Pheme Perkins, and comparative interreligious theologian Francis X.

Silence and Noise (USED)

$5.99
More Info
A fresh new voice in American Buddhism -- a twenty-nine-year-old raised among Buddhists in California -- offers wisdom for both longtime practitioners and a new generation of students in this fascinating memoir of his Zen upbringing.
Over half a century ago, when the first Zen Masters came to America, eager young students in search of enlightenment flocked to hear their teachings. Many, like Ivan Richmond's parents, became Buddhist teachers themselves while raising their children at monasteries and retreat centers. Growing up in the seventies in the deliberate silence of a Buddhist community, young Ivan knew only the hippies and redwoods of Northern California. When his family left in 1983, he became an immigrant in his own country, suddenly entering a mainstream society that was full of paradox and pop culture, uncertainty and noise. This is the story of his struggle to find peace amidst the chaos.
Whether dispensing kernels of Buddhist insight taught to him as a child or reflecting on the merits of rock concerts, Richmond narrates his emergence from seclusion with a sensitivity that is often touching, frequently funny, and always honest. The story of the powerfully resonant journey of this foot soldier in the front lines of American Buddhism is an essential read for anyone interested in the current state of Zen in America.

Spirit of Happiness (USED)

$6.99
More Info
In the course of our lives, we struggle to establish careers and relationships that we hope will infuse us with a sense of purpose. While important titles, wealth, power, and possessions may represent a life that is successful in the eyes of others, pursuit of these achievements prompts us to seek more of the same again and again. However, it is only through a fundamental understanding of faith in God that we can discover His purpose for each of us in life, and can in turn pursue a meaningful existence and achieve lasting happiness.

In his authentic and profound book "The Spirit of Happiness, " Dr. T. Byram Karasu explores the psychological barriers that prevent so many of us from allowing faith to become an integral part of our lives and from becoming truly serene and fulfilled human beings.

We all experience many difficulties and conflicts in our daily lives, meeting challenges at work and in relationships, suffering through illness, losses, and failures, feeling anxious, depressed, or simply empty and purposeless. If we view such ordeals through the wisdom of the Holy Bible, which Dr. Karasu presents to us here as the ultimate self-help book, we can learn to understand and identify with God's Holy Purpose. Psycho-spiritual exercises, including meditations and affirmations based on God's word, are placed at the end of each chapter to help focus the reader's spiritual intention and lead the way to a more joyful and rewarding existence.

Beautifully written and deeply moving, "The Spirit of Happiness" begins where most self-help books end.

St. Maria Goretti in Garments All Red (USED)

$2.99
More Info
MARIA GORETTI was not yet 12 years old when she was faced with that momentous decision in July of 1902: sin or death. Maria's answer to her assailant was clear: "No! No! It is a sin! God does not want this!" Alessandro stabbed Maria 14 times, and little Maria became another virgin martyr in the line of St. Agnes and St. Cecilia. Here is the beautiful true story of Maria's virtuous life that led to her heroic choice, of the Goretti family's terrible poverty, Maria's First Holy Communion, her great maturity in shouldering adult responsibilities, her forgiveness of her murderer, her lingering death, then finally her public elevation to sainthood in 1950-in the presence of her mother, her family and the largest crowd ever before seen at a canonization-over half a million people. St. Maria Goretti-In Garments All Red has already gone through several editions and is becoming a contemporary classic. Young people, especially, are deeply affected by it. But this is truly a book for all-because people of any age will be in-spired by St. Maria Goretti's purity and love of God-which triumphed over her love for life and even over the anonymity of death.

    Sunflower; On the Possibilities and Limits of Forgiveness (USED)

    $3.99
    More Info
    While imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp, Simon Wiesenthal was taken one day from his work detail to the bedside of a dying member of the S.S. Haunted by the crimes in which he had participated, the soldier wanted to confess to and obtain absolution from - a Jew. This unusual encounter and the moral dilemma it posed raise fundamental questions about the limits and possibilities of forgiveness. Must we, can we forgive the repentant criminal? Can we forgive crimes committed against others? What do we owe the victims? Twenty-five years after the Holocaust, Wiesenthal asked leading intellectuals what they would have done in his place. Collected into one volume, their responses became a classic of Holocaust literature and a touchstone of interfaith dialogue. This revised edition of "The Sunflower" includes 46 responses (10 from the original volume) from prominent theologians, political leaders, writers, jurists, psychiatrists, human rights activists, Holocaust survivors, and victims of attempted genocides in Bosnia, Cambodia, China, and Tibet. Their answers reflect the teachings of their diverse beliefs - Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, secular, and agnostic - and remind us that Wiesenthal's question is not limited to events of the past.

    Surprised By Joy (USED)

    $4.99
    More Info
    "A young man who wishes to remain a sound Atheist cannot be too careful of his reading. There are traps everywhere . . . God is, if I may say it, very unscrupulous."This book is not an autobiography. It is not a confession. It is, however, certainly one of the most beautiful and insightful accounts of a person coming to faith. Here, C.S. Lewis takes us from his childhood in Belfast through the loss of his mother, to boarding school and a youthful atheism in England, to the trenches of World War I, and then to Oxford, where he studied, read, and, ultimately, reasoned his way back to God. It is perhaps this aspect of Surprised by Joy that we--believers and nonbelievers--find most compelling and meaningful; Lewis was searching for joy, for an elusive and momentary sensation of glorious yearning, but he found it, and spiritual life, through the use of reason. In this highly personal, thoughtful, intelligent memoir, Lewis guides us toward joy and toward the surprise that awaits anyone who seeks a life beyond the expected."Lewis tempered his logic with a love for beauty, wonder, and magic . . . He speaks to us with all the power and life-changing force of a Plato, a Dante, and a Bunyan."--Christianity Today"The tension of these final chapters holds the interest like the close of a thriller."--Times Literary SupplementC. S. (Clive Staples) Lewis (1898-1963), one of the great writers of the twentieth century, also continues to be one of our most influential Christian thinkers. He wrote more than thirty books, both popular and scholarly, including The Chronicles of Narnia series, The Screwtape Letters, The Four Loves, Mere Christianity, and Till We Have Faces.

    The Age of Doubt; Tracing Our Roots of Our Religious Uncertainty (USED)

    $7.99
    More Info

    The Victorian era was the first great "Age of Doubt" and a critical moment in the history of Western ideas. Leading nineteenth-century intellectuals battled the Church and struggled to absorb radical scientific discoveries that upended everything the Bible had taught them about the world. In The Age of Doubt, distinguished scholar Christopher Lane tells the fascinating story of a society under strain as virtually all aspects of life changed abruptly.

    In deft portraits of scientific, literary, and intellectual icons who challenged the prevailing religious orthodoxy, from Robert Chambers and Anne Brontë to Charles Darwin and Thomas H. Huxley, Lane demonstrates how they and other Victorians succeeded in turning doubt from a religious sin into an ethical necessity.

    The dramatic adjustment of Victorian society has echoes today as technology, science, and religion grapple with moral issues that seemed unimaginable even a decade ago. Yet the Victorians' crisis of faith generated a far more searching engagement with religious belief than the "new atheism" that has evolved today. More profoundly than any generation before them, the Victorians came to view doubt as inseparable from belief, thought, and debate, as well as a much-needed antidote to fanaticism and unbridled certainty. By contrast, a look at today's extremes--from the biblical literalists behind the Creation Museum to the dogmatic rigidity of Richard Dawkins's atheism--highlights our modern-day inability to embrace doubt.

    The Art of Happiness at Work (USED)

    $4.99
    More Info
    From the authors who brought you the million-copy bestseller "The Art of Happiness" comes an exploration of job, career, and finding the ultimate happiness at work.
    It spent nearly two years on the "New York Times" bestseller list and has sold well over a million copies in hardcover. It remains, five years later, in its original hardcover edition. It was the book by the Dalai Lama that broke new ground, that made him accessible to a larger audience, spreading his words of daily wisdom and message of inner peace that captured the imagination of America. His Holiness the Dalai Lama, for the first time since that revolutionary book, has once again teamed up with psychiatrist Howard Cutler to resume the discussion about what makes life meaningful begun in "The Art of Happiness."
    Over the past several years, Howard Cutler has continued his conversations with the Dalai Lama, asking him the questions we all want answered about how to find happiness in the place we spend most of our time. Work-whether it's in the home or at an office-is what mostly runs our lives. We depend on it to eat, to clothe and shelter ourselves, and to take care of our families. Once again, Dr. Cutler brings forward seminal studies and asks the Dalai Lama to respond. Beginning with a direct correlation between productivity and happiness, Dr. Cutler questions His Holiness about the nature of work. In psychiatry and according to the Dalai Lama, our motivation for working determines our level of satisfaction. The book explores these three levels of focus:
    Survival focus on salary, stability, food and clothing
    Career focus on advancement
    Calling focus on work as a higher purpose
    Cutler probes the Dalai Lama's wisdom by posing these questions: How does the relationship between our personal values and those of our employers affect happiness? What is the relationship between self-awareness and work? What are the main sources of dissatisfaction and how can we cope with them? How do we deal with conflicts with coworkers and bosses? How do we deal with jealousy, anger, or hostility at work? How does the lack of freedom affect our levels of happiness? How do we deal with boredom or lack of challenge? Unfair criticism? Overly demanding or taxing situations? Job change and unemployment?
    Once again, Cutler walks us through the Dalai Lama's reasoning so that we know how to apply the wisdom to daily life. This practical application of Buddhist ideasis an invaluable source of strength and peace for anyone who earns a living.
    The Dalai Lama's most recent book, "The Wisdom of Compassion," is now available from Riverhead Books."

    The Bliss of Freedom (USED)

    $3.99
    More Info
    The autobiography of a contemporary American mystic and master of meditation

    The bestseller list is dominated by books focusing on personal growth and self-realization. Authors such as Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, and Wayne Dyer articulate approaches to life that depart from Western ways. Now, in the tradition of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi, Master Charles escorts the reader along the road of his personal journey of self-discovery and enlightenment, from child music prodigy to phenomenally successful leader of the meditation industry. As the originator of the Synchronicity High-Tech Meditation Experience, the author has introduced thousands of people throughout the world to his contemporary accelerated form of meditation.

    Born Charles Cannon in Syracuse, NY, Master Charles spent 12 years as an ordained Vedic monk, studying under Parmahansa Muktananda, Indian guru to Hollywood celebrities as well as the prime minister of India. In 1982 he developed a very scientific and powerful system of music designed to alter the frequency of brain waves, with little or no effort from the listener. Thus he created a more accessible Western context in which to impart the lessons of ancient Eastern philosophy and meditation.

    This is a fascinating story of an unusual American whose life has been a bridge between two cultures.

    "The Bliss of Freedom is a celebration of life... a glimpse of the potential and possibilities for us all, here, now". -- John Bradshaw, author of Healing the Shame That Binds You
