Unseen Realm

$27.95
More Info
In The Unseen Realm, Dr. Michael Heiser examines the ancient context of Scripture, explaining how its supernatural worldview can help us grow in our understanding of God. He illuminates intriguing and amazing passages of the Bible that have been hiding in plain sight. You'll find yourself engaged in an enthusiastic pursuit of the truth, resulting in a new appreciation for God's Word.
  • Why wasn't Eve surprised when the serpent spoke to her?
  • How did descendants of the Nephilim survive the flood?
  • Why did Jacob fuse Yahweh and his Angel together in his prayer?
  • Who are the assembly of divine beings that God presides over?
  • In what way do those beings participate in God's decisions?
  • Why do Peter and Jude promote belief in imprisoned spirits?
  • Why does Paul describe evil spirits in terms of geographical rulership?
  • Who are the "glorious ones" that even angels dare not rebuke?
  • After reading this book, you may never read your Bible the same way again.

    "There is a world referred to in the Scripture that is quite unseen, but also quite present and active. Michael Heiser's The Unseen Realm seeks to unmask this world. Heiser shows how important it is to understand this world and appreciate how its contribution helps to make sense of Scripture. The book is clear and well done, treating many ideas and themes that often go unseen themselves. With this book, such themes will no longer be neglected, so read it and discover a new realm for reflection about what Scripture teaches."
    --Darrell L. Bock, Executive Director for Cultural Engagement, Senior Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Howard G. Hendricks Center for Christian Leadership and Cultural Engagement

    "'How was it possible that I had never seen that before?' Dr. Heiser's survey of the complex reality of the supernatural world as the Scriptures portray it covers a subject that is strangely sidestepped. No one is going to agree with everything in his book, but the subject deserves careful study, and so does this book."
    --John Goldingay, David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament, School of Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary

    Unveiled the Hidden Lives of Nuns (USED)

    $6.99
    More Info
    What do nuns really think about life, death, love, sex, faith, friendship, guilt, regret, loss, motherhood, feminism, and the modern world and all its conveniences and luxuries?
    To answer these questions, award-winning journalist Cheryl L. Reed interviewed more than 300 nuns from a wide variety of orders-and with divergent beliefs. She lived with them, observed their daily lives, and participated in silent worship. She witnessed their vow ceremonies, mourned with them, celebrated and drank beer with them. They welcomed questions no one had ever dared ask before. In the end the nuns that Reed approached with suspicion and curiosity ended up teaching her more about motherhood, relationships, and feminism than she ever gleaned from the outside world.
    In "Unveiled," Reed has succeeded in opening up the doors to a once closed world-one often misrepresented and almost always misunderstood-to present nuns not as stoic icons of secrecy and ritual but simply as women who have chosen an independent path, and who now offer themselves as guides to their fascinating, surprising, and enlightening interior lives.

    Upanishads

    $4.99
    More Info
    This new translation of The Upanishads is at once delightfully simple and rigorously learned, providing today's readers with an accurate, accessible rendering of the core work of ancient Indian philosophy.

    The Upanishads are often considered the most important literature from ancient India. Yet many academic translators fail to capture the work's philosophical and spiritual subtlety, while others convey its poetry at the cost of literal meaning.

    This new translation by Vernon Katz and Thomas Egenes fills the need for an Upanishads that is clear, simple, and insightful - yet remains faithful to the original Sanskrit.

    As Western Sanskrit scholars who have spent their lives immersed in meditative practice, Katz and Egenes offer a unique perspective in penetrating the depths of Eastern wisdom and expressing these insights in modern yet poetic language.

    Their historical introduction is suited to newcomers and experienced readers alike, providing the perfect entry to this unparalleled work.

    What's Wrong?: Applied Ethicists and Their Critics is a thorough and engaging introduction to applied ethics that covers virtually all of the issues in the field. Featuring more than ninety-five articles, it addresses standard topics--such as abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, world hunger, and animal rights--and also delves into cutting-edge areas like cloning, racial profiling, same-sex marriage, prostitution, and slave reparations. The volume includes seminal essays by prominent philosophers (Robert Nozick, James Rachels, Peter Singer, and Judith Jarvis Thomson) alongside work by newer voices in the field.
    Employing a unique approach to teaching argumentation, editors David Boonin and Graham Oddie unify the wealth of material presented in this collection. Each chapter opens with a featured article that takes a strong stand on a particular issue; the essays that immediately follow offer objections and critical responses to the arguments put forth in the featured selection. This format helps students learn how to better engage in debates because it illustrates how philosophers argue with each other. In addition, a general introduction describes strategies for understanding and evaluating the different types of arguments contained in the readings, while detailed chapter introductions enable students to see precisely how the arguments presented in the various writings are related to one another. Discussion questions and suggestions for further reading are included for each chapter. Ideal for courses in introduction to ethics and applied ethics/contemporary moral problems, What's Wrong? can also be used in critical thinking courses that emphasize philosophical argumentation.

    When God is Silent (USED)

    $3.99
    More Info
    "Reading of God's silence in the Bible gives me courage to explore the practice of restraint in preaching--not as a deliberate withholding of God's word nor, I hope, as a rationale for my own reticence, but as a sober reaching for more reverence in the act of public speaking about God." In these 1997 Lyman Beecher Lectures in Preaching delivered at Yale Divinity School, Barbara Brown Taylor focuses on the task of those who preach and those who hear sermons in a world where people thirst for a word from God. How may we approach this seemingly silent God with due respect, proclaiming the Word without violating the silence, by speaking with restraint? Her first chapter examines the late twentieth-century language with which we talk about God in theology and speak to God in prayer. The second chapter addresses the question of God's communication in Scripture and how the "voice of God" was heard less and less in the land as the centuries progressed. Finally, Taylor explores what the silence of God means for Christians and how we may exercise "homiletical restraint" in speaking of the divine.

    Who Is My Neighbor? An Extensive Commentary on the Good Samaritan Parable

    $13.95
    More Info

    One of the most profoundly influential and immortal parables ever recounted by the Savior is the parable of the Good Samaritan. In this story, the Messiah expounds upon what constitutes the nature of true religion, which consists in the willful extension of charity and mercy, in the performance of acts of love and in bringing the greatest good to others. The parable also proves that the performance of deeds of righteousness very often comes from the unlikeliest of characters, in strange, unexpected places to provide for us in ways that utterly transcend our narrow definitions or limited expectations. And no more than we should not discount any human being as unworthy of our services should we deny or underestimate that any other has the capacity to initiate or reciprocate such graces.
    Though rich in interest as a story in itself, especially as an embodiment of profoundly precious lessons on the nature of love in action and at face value is both dramatic and practical in the obvious application of its meaning, there is a time honored interpretation taught by the ancient assembly and preserved throughout the Middle Ages that brilliantly encapsulates the plan of salvation in such a way that has lost its metaphorical meaning in modernity. The parable of the Good Samaritan testifies of the plan of salvation, the Savior's atoning love and our journey toward eternal life. It can not only be read as a story of a man who went down from Jerusalem to Jericho but also about all who come down from the heavenly presence of the Father to live on earth. The story has a universal application for all of humanity that is as relevant and necessary today as it was when it was first declared. This meaning becomes more visible as it was formerly taught and understood by the early Church fathers, an interpretation the author resurrects and elucidates upon.

    Why Does the World Exist? An Existential Detective Story (USED)

    $7.99
    More Info
    Whether framed philosophically as "Why is there a world rather than nothing at all?" or more colloquially as "But, Mommy, who made God?" the metaphysical mystery about how we came into existence remains the most fractious and fascinating question of all time. Following in the footsteps of Christopher Hitchens, Roger Penrose, and even Stephen Hawking, Jim Holt emerges with an engrossing narrative that traces our latest efforts to grasp the origins of the universe. As he takes on the role of cosmological detective, the brilliant yet slyly humorous Holt contends that we might have been too narrow in limiting our suspects to God vs. the Big Bang. Whether interviewing a cranky Oxford philosopher, a Physics Nobel Laureate, or a French Buddhist monk, Holt pursues unexplored and often bizarre angles to this cosmic puzzle. The result is a brilliant synthesis of cosmology, mathematics, and physics--one that propels his own work to the level of philosophy itself.

    Why Politics Needs Religion (USED)

    $6.99
    More Info
    Can religion and politics mix? Many voices reply, "No way!" Yet in this provocative and timely book, Brendan Sweetman argues against this charge and the various sophisticated arguments that support it. As we witness the clash of religious and secular worldviews he claims that our pluralistic democratic society will be best served when the faith elements of secularism are acknowledged and the rational elements of religious arguments are allowed to inform the momentous debates taking place in the public square. In fact, Sweetman contends that "politics needs religion if it is to be truly democratic, concerned with fairness among worldviews, equality and a vigorous public discussion."

    Written by the Director of the Lesbian and Gay Ministry of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, this extraordinary new book cuts through the controversy and argument about homosexuality to present a compassionate explanation of official Church teaching. Everyone talks about homosexuality yet most Catholics, even pastors, are ignorant of the Church's newest, positive thoughts on the issue. This book presents these teachings and the sound pastoral practices that arise from them. Above all, the book emphasizes the Church's position that personhood is made up of so much more than one's sexual orientation and that God and grace are found in every person's story -- without exception.

    Working With Angels (USED)

    $3.99
    More Info
    Angels play a far more important role in our lives than we realize. Our minds and emotions are shaped out of angelic substance. Our greatest music, art work, and literature has its roots in angelic inspiration. Angelic troops help us to give birth -- and to heal the sick. And yet, as a race, we remain almost totally ignorant of these divine beings, their purpose, and their role.

    This is due to our own blindness. In this short book, authors Robert R. Leichtman, M.D. and Carl Japikse describe the truth about angels -- and how humans can learn to work with them. The authors shatter a lot of misconceptions about angels and their interactions with humans, then go on to outline the real basis for angelic-human interaction.

Pope Benedict XVI wrote the foreword; Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, the editor of YOUCAT and the Archbishop of Vienna, Austria, wrote the afterword.
