The Covering; God's Plan to Protect You from Evil (USED)

$3.99
More Info
In a world where evil seems to lurk around every corner and our thoughts turn to worry about our safety and security, the armor of God is our Father's protection in the fight against evils of our temporary home. Best-selling author Hank Hanegraaff describes God's protective covering over his children by dissecting Paul's words in Ephesians 6: 10-18 commanding us to put on the armor of God and "take our stand against the devil's schemes." Hanegraaff moves through the passage, phrase by phrase, defining God's armor, explaining what it means to embrace God's covering, and the practical ways God delivers us from evil.

The Forest Through the Trees

$17.95
More Info
So I was thinking, - as I turned 70 and all (Wow! 70?), if I was to die tomorrow, what would I be leaving behind? Let's see, there's my Camaro SS, my Harley Dyna Wide, a few bills, my Garden Tractor, my tools, etc. So maybe, I thought, I should leave behind something a little more substantial, - something that might give an inkling to the nature of all those years that I poured myself into my Parishes (and into my Truck Driving), - all the joys, sacrifices, frustrations, triumphs, failures, laughs, heartaches, tears, commitment, betrayals and love (did I miss anything?). And well, here it is. A written collection of those experiences, thoughts and observations, in print, and available on the internet no less! I guess that takes care of eternity. Now, I sure didn't write all this to bore anyone, so I hope that you will find, tucked within these pages, a few bits and a few episodes that may serve to get a rise out of you, and possibly illuminate some of the gray areas you might have as to what it means to be a human being, and, maybe in particular, a Christian. Hey, swimming as we do through the often swift currents of our culture and its traditions, it's easy to get lost. I know I do! So, here's hoping that these humble efforts of mine might help us both to find our way home.

The Forest Through the Trees

$17.95
More Info
One of the disciplines I embraced during my 30+ years as a Christian Pastor was the challenge to write a monthly Pastoral Letter to the members of my Parish. I don't know how many my "folks" ever read them, but I know that I truly enjoyed the effort it took to write them. It's good for the soul and the mind to write out how you feel about things. Maybe you should try it! So I was thinking, - as I just turned 70 and all (Wow! 70?), if I were to die tomorrow, what would I be leaving behind? Let's see, there's my Camaro SS, my Harley Dyna-Wide, a few bills, my Garden Tractor, my tools, etc. So maybe, I thought, I should leave something a little more substantial, - something that might give a "whiff" of the "scent" of all those years that I poured myself into my Parishes, - all the joys, the sacrifices, the frustrations, the laughs, the heartaches, the tears, the commitment, the love. And well, here it is. A collection of those monthly letters, in print, and on Amazon and no less! I guess that takes care of eternity. In truth, my hope is that this book of letters can help illuminate some of the gray areas of Christian ways, culture and tradition. I guess it's like when I got my first set of glasses. Right away I said, "Wow! I can see again!" Its a really cool feeling, and I just hope that these musings of mine can some how help all of us see the wholeness of Christian life (and just plain old life itself) a little more clearly. Now, beyond the letters, I have included some other little gifts as well. So hey, if you are maybe feeling a little daring, give it try. Maybe you'll find something in here that you like. If not, hey whatever, - at least you gave it a shot, - and I appreciate it. May you find many unexpected joys and mysteries in your travels. JJ

The Future of God (USED)

$7.99
More Info
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 Gods of War (USED)

$7.99
More Info
Does religion cause war? It is often claimed that religion is responsible for more wars, more global conflicts and more deaths than any other factor. After all, the world has seen its share of crusades, inquisitions and jihads. Enlightened, modern people assume that if we could only discard primitive religious belief, the world would be a better place. Alas, the picture is not quite so simple. "Indeed," writes Meic Pearse, "there is only one thing that bears a heavier responsibility than religion as a principal cause of war. And that is, of course, irreligion." In this provocative book, historian Meic Pearse debunks the common misconception that religion causes war. He argues that while religion is often a significant generator of armed conflict both in the past and in the present, the two principal causes of human warfare are in fact culture and greed for territory, resources or power. Since culture and greed often clothe themselves in religion, wars fought for culture often appear to be fought for religion. With keen analysis of global history and current events, Pearse shows how irreligion has produced far bloodier wars than religion, and how global secularism itself does violence to religion and traditional cultures. Ultimately, throughout history warfare has been waged over the shape of society itself. A crisis in meaning leads people to fight for what they fear may be lost. For a world weary of war, Pearse points beyond both cultural and secular metanarratives to an alternative hope.

The Joy of Living; A Guide to Daily Living with Mother Teresa (USED)

$4.99
More Info
The ideas and insights to be found in these pages spring from incidents in Mother Teresa's own life: She speaks of men and women who have lived and died uncomplainingly, even in the midst of great poverty and deprivation; of wealthy businessmen whose indifference has been transformed into compassion and charity, and of her encounters with people and governments around the globe. Through all of this, Mother emphasizes the need for a disciplined, loving family life, for "in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world." Drawing on more than seventy years of selfless service to the poorest of the poor, she discusses the importance of work and prayer, charity and service, the right to life and, above all, the need to love - unconditionally and absolutely. For all those who seek to find meaning and fulfillment in life, The Joy in Loving will prove a constant source of guidance, comfort, and peace.

The Oracle

$24.99
More Info
New York Times and USA Today Best Seller!

Discover the amazing secret of the ages...and the mystery of your life!

The Oracle will reveal the mystery behind everything...the past, the present, current events, even what is yet to come! Open the seven doors of revelation--and prepare to be blown away!

Jonathan Cahn, author of the New York Times best sellers The Harbinger, The Mystery of the Shemitah, The Book of Mysteries, and The Paradigm, now unveils The Oracle, in which he opens up the Jubilean mysteries and a revelation so big that it lies behind everything from the rise and fall of nations and empires (even America), to the current events of our day, to the future, to end-time prophecy, and much more.
  • Could an ancient prophecy and a mysterious ordinance given in a Middle Eastern desert over three thousand years ago be determining the events of our day?
  • Could some of the most famous people of modern history and current events be secretly linked to this mystery-even a modern president of the United States?
  • Could this ancient revelation pinpoint the events of our times down to the year, month, and day of their occurring?
  • Could a mysterious phenomenon be manifesting on the world stage on an exact timetable determined from ancient times?
  • Could these manifestations have altered-and now be altering-the course of world events?
  • Jonathan Cahn takes the reader on a journey to find the man called the Oracle. One by one each of the Jubilean mysteries will be revealed through the giving of a vision. The Oracle will uncover the mysteries of The Stranger, The Lost City, The Man With the Measuring Line, The Land of Seven Wells, The Birds, The Number of the End, The Man in the Black Robe, The Prophet's Song, The Matrix of Years, The Day of the Lions, The Awakening of the Dragon, and much more.

    The reader will discover the ancient scrolls that contain the appointed words that have determined the course of world history from the onset of modern times up to our day. The revelation is so big that it will involve and open up the mysteries of everything and everyone from Mark Twain to Moses, from King Nebuchadnezzar to Donald Trump, from the fall of empires to the rise of America, from a mystery hidden in a desert cave to another in an ancient scroll, from the palace of the Persian Empire to the US Senate, from the Summer of Love to the Code of Babylon, and much, much more.

    Ultimately the Oracle will reveal the secret that lies behind end-time prophecy and the mystery of the end of the age.

    As with The Harbinger and The Book of Mysteries, Cahn reveals the mysteries through a narrative. A traveler is given seven keys; each will open up one of seven doors. Behind each door lies a stream of mysteries. The reader will be taken on a journey of angels and prophetic revelations waiting to be discovered behind each of the seven doors-the ancient secrets that lie behind the world-changing events of modern times-and revelations of what is yet to come.

    Hailed as a mind-blowing masterpiece, The Oracle will reveal mysteries that are absolutely real, amazing, stunning, mind-blowing, and life-changing.

    Prepare to be blown away.

    The Prison Narratives of Jeanne Guyon (USED)

    $5.99
    More Info
    This book presents the first-ever English translation of the Prison Narratives written by the seventeenth-century French mystic and Quietist, Jeanne Guyon (1648-1717). Although she was marginalized and ignored by French historians for two centuries after her death, Guyon became a major figure in the development of transatlantic Protestant spirituality in the eighteenth century, and her writings have remained popular among English-speaking audiences.

    Guyon's narrative describes her confinement between 1695 and 1703 in various prisons, including the dreaded Bastille. It also maps, in moving and unforgettable detail, the political and religious hegemony that sought to destroy her reputation and erase her from history. Although she published an autobiography in 1720, Guyon kept the part that described her experience in prison private and the text remained undiscovered for almost three centuries - until an archival version was found and published in 1992 under the title Recits de Captivite (Prison Narratives).
    Mourad and Guenin-Lelle provide here not only a translation of the full Narratives but a thorough introduction, including a brief biography of Guyon, an analysis of the Quietist Affair (the religious and political conflict responsible for her persecution), and a summary of the key historical, literary, and theological aspects of Guyon's prison writings. The introduction represents the most detailed examination of the Prison Narratives presently available in either English or French.

    The Red Thread of Passion (USED)

    $8.99
    More Info
    Is sex an enemy that must be subdued before spiritual practice can happen, or is it a powerful creative force and a vehicle of enlightenment? There may be no completely satisfying answer--though the question has engendered discussion for centuries. David Guy's contribution takes the form of a personal exploration of the place of sex in his own life and meditation practice, as well as in the lives and work of figures he has come to regard as pioneers on the boundaries of sex and spirituality: Walt Whitman, D. H. Lawrence, Alan Watts, and the erotic writer Marco Vassi among them. It also includes accounts of his pilgrimages to contemporary theorists, activists, and sex workers.

    From poets to prostitutes, everyone has something to say, even though the reconciliation of sex and spirituality may always remain something of a paradox--as expressed in the Zen koan from which the title is taken: "Why is it that the most clear-eyed monk cannot sever the red thread of passion between his legs?" David Guy's answer is this honest and compelling exploration of the nature of desire.

    Arthur Waley s brilliant and definitive translation of one of the foremost of all mystical books, Lao Tzu s Tao Te Ching, has become a modern classic in its own right. Unlike previous translations, it is founded not on the medieval commentaries but on a close study of all the early Chinese literature, and it provides a singular example of authoritative scholarship skillfully blended with brilliant, precise writing. In his introduction, Dr. Waley gives an extensive scholarly account of Chinese thought down to the end of the third century B.C. Here, the author presents a full picture of Chinese prehistory, early philosophy, and literature, showing the original, lofty conception of Taoism before the gradual corruption through the course of centuries, tracing this conflict of philosophies and its background of politics."

In this inspiring, motivational book, readers will receive the advice and encouragement to daily move from "pause" to "play" in finding deeper meaning and success.

    There are so many stories that I have to share that are a result of my upbringing, my home, schools I attended and my Catholic faith that the only way to do them justice is to continue the remainder of the book in vignettes. These stories are a compilation of moments, days, weeks and years of feelings. These feelings exude a range of happy, sad, bittersweet, tender, determined and loving - all parts of me that show a person who refused to give in to the negative side of life. My positive attitude has always prevailed.

    I will attempt to categorize my stories into ones that refer to my family, my love of travel, my passion for dance and teaching dance, my naïve nature, my business sense and all the people I met as a result. ENJOY!!!
