BOOK SUMMARY FOR BACK COVER It is jubilee and it is time for God’s people to rise up and fulfill their end time destiny both corporately and individually. God is raising up a chosen people who will be marked by his name and prosper in the midst of the adversity of this world. There is a generation that has joined together with God in a covenant relationship where they will hear and act according to his direction. They have committed themselves to holiness and righteousness and have laid their lives before him for the fulfillment of his end time purpose. God is releasing a divine blessing that will usher in a continuous flow of his supernatural provision borne outside of our own abilities. God is ready to deliver his people who will receive his promises and act on it by faith. You were not created for a life of defeat and unfulfillment. Rather, you were created for a life of success where you will experience victory in every circumstance of your life. God is calling you to surrender all to him and allow the Holy Spirit to breathe new life into you to live again, dream again and arise with fresh spiritual energy and tenacity, as he challenges you to rebirth your dreams and allow yourself to be propelled into your God ordained destiny. My prayer is that God will release his anointing upon you and raise you up as a mighty warrior where you will experience total victory over the enemy in every area of your life.

Christianity's Struggle for New Beginnings

Dare to imagine a new birth from deep within Christianity, a fresh stirring of the Spirit. “The walls of Western Christianity are collapsing. In many parts of the West that collapse can only be described as seismic.... There are three main responses or reactions to this collapse. The first is to deny that it is happening. The second is to frantically try to shore up the foundations of the old thing. The third, which I invite us into, is to ask what is trying to be born that requires a radical reorientation of our vision. What is the new thing that is trying to emerge from deep within us and from deep within the collective soul of Christianity?” —from the Introduction In the midst of dramatic changes in Western Christianity, internationally respected spiritual leader, peacemaker and scholar John Philip Newell offers the hope of a fresh stirring of the Spirit among us. He invites us to be part of a new holy birth of sacred living. Speaking directly to the heart of Christians—those within the well-defined bounds of Christian practice and those on the disenchanted edges—as well as to the faithful and seekers of other traditions, he explores eight major features of a new birthing of Christianity: Coming back into relationship with the Earth as sacred Reconnecting with compassion as the ground of true relationship Celebrating the Light that is at the heart of all life Reverencing the wisdom of other religious traditions Rediscovering spiritual practice as the basis for transformation Living the way of nonviolence among nations Looking to the unconscious as the wellspring of new vision Following love as the seed-force of new birth in our lives and world

Rebirthing Into Androgyny

Your Quest for Wholeness and Afterward

In these "interesting times," when many people are searching for spiritual nourishment, this book is intended to be a means of providing it. Rebirthing Into Androgyny: Your Quest For Wholeness, And Afterward offers to the hungry ones a familiar yet totally different feast. While it sets forth an already-established metaphysics, it also presents a radical new idea--one that has been implicit in that spiritual thought but unavailable until now and the new awareness associated with quantum physics. In other words, while this book provides soul searchers--also known as learners--with an ages-old means of generating a fundamental inner change (a rebirthing), it also provides a new, living prototype of what is being reborn. Thus, a person's rebirthing is both a gestation and a labor (a quest) producing an ever-increasing knowing ("gnosis"), which gradually becomes being that can finally merge with the Beloved/Self. And the new, living prototype is that of the human soul, not as what a person has but as what a person is: a creative energy being who generates its own "bodies" out of its soul substance--its creative consciousness energy--by means of its archetypal human energy system, while always being guided by its nucleus of divinity. In this book, which is a textbook for soul searchers, all of this transformative change is offered, explored and explained in a series of carefully-crafted lessons lovingly taught by a shamanic teacher/healer in a stone circle "classroom," the ancient site of a modern teaching. There is a grand feast awaiting! The cover design was created by Paula Kozak, Sarasota, Florida: set in a circle representing the Unity of the Cosmos, the Oneness that includes all people, the hexagram is an ancient symbol of androgyny. The Nordic rune "Dagaz" across its center signifies breakthrough and transformation. The gold of the hexagram against the white background indicates the ever-present divine energies that guide and sustain, while the light spectrum surrounding the circle and extending in all directions indicates the auric "field" of a human energy being, inseparable from its Creator.

Where Faith Meets Culture

A Radix Magazine Anthology

Where Faith Meets Culture is a Radix magazine anthology. What does Radix usually contain? Interviews and features. Reviews of significant books, films, and CDs. Informed opinions in The Last Word. Eye-catching graphics. Mind-stretching prose. Image-rich poetry. Radix assumes that Christians live in the real world and takes lay Christians seriously. As one subscriber wrote: Radix is a more worldly magazine than one would expect from its deep commitment to Christ. Radix monitors the cultural landscape, questions assumptions, and introduces new voices, remaining deeply rooted in Christ. Sociologist Robert Bellah wrote in a Radix article: Though social scientists say a lot about the self, they have nothing to say about the soul and as a result the modern view finds the world intrinsically meaningless. Radix continues to talk about meaning and hope in a culture that has lost its way. The articles in this volume reflect the magazine's wide-ranging interests: literature, art, music, theology, psychology, technology, discipleship, and spiritual formation. They're written by some of the outstanding authors whose work has graced our pages over the years: Peggy Alter, Kurt Armstrong, Robert Bellah, Bob Buford, Krista Faries, David Fetcho, Susan Fetcho, Sharon Gallagher, David W. Gill, Joel B. Green, Os Guinness, Virginia Hearn, Walter Hearn, Donald Heinz, Margaret Horwitz, Mark Labberton, Henri Nouwen, Earl Palmer, Susan Phillips, Dan Ouellette, Steve Scott, and Luci Shaw.

Building a Culture of Peace

Around the world, thousands of grassroots movements are confronting issues like destruction of the environment, economic depression, human rights violations, religious fundamentalism, and war. This book tells the courageous story of one such group. Organizing in 1939, Northern Baptists formed the Baptist Pacifist Fellowship as part of the Fellowship of Reconciliation. Southern Baptists formed a parallel body. Like today, it was a time when sources of hope seemed hard to find. Discerning a need to support and connect Baptist conscientious objectors in the United States, members faced hostility in congregations and the nation. For the duration of the Second World War, the Korean War, war in Vietnam and elsewhere, Baptists sustained a witness for peace and justice. By 1984, threat of nuclear weapons led to formation of a wider circle of resistance to the culture of war. Subsequently, the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America has brought together Baptist peacemakers from around North America and the world. However small in numbers or reviled, members have been building a culture of peace through an interracial and international community. This book is an invaluable resource for those seeking a new world of forgiveness, respect for human rights, nonviolence, and peace.

Out of the womens movement of the 1980s and 90s emerged small groups of women who purchased land together, usually in the country, sometimes in the wilderness. This Land, with its blend of fiction, memoir, poetry and essay, describes and reflects upon one such venture: eight women who bought 50 acres of Adirondack forestland in which they camped and built shelters, then more abiding homes. From diverse backgrounds they shared the American dream of a place for us, a place where they could find both sanctuary and adventure, solidarity and solitude, change and support. These survivors of 60s and 70s ferment and activism anticipated the challenges of group living, but coming from cities, they had no idea how much they would be changed by their encounters with the nature which surrounded them--its storms and vistas, animal visits, tree energies, and powers of water, fire, stars, lightning. For each of the eight women these meetings with natural others provided discoveries which helped them chart the whole of their lives, while guiding them toward paths of environmental guardianship. This is a story about how place shapes friendship and friendship informs place.
