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

Kristinas, Celestes und Julianas Familie ist die Sekte »Kinder Gottes«, in der sie den Misshandlungen und dem Missbrauch durch erwachsene Sektenmitglieder hilflos ausgesetzt sind. Die Schwestern werden schon früh voneinander getrennt und leben in verschiedenen Missionsstationen der Gemeinschaft. Sie träumen von einem Wiedersehen, fürchten aber den Zorn Gottes, wenn sie sich dem Willen der »Familie« widersetzen. Schonungslos offen erzählen die Schwestern von den seelischen Grausamkeiten und der Gewalt unter dem Deckmantel des Glaubens. Ihre Geschichte ist voller schmerzlicher Erinnerungen, aber auch das Zeugnis einer mutigen Befreiung und dem Weg in ein neues Leben.

Aung San Suu Kyi ist eine Gefangene in ihrem eigenen Land. Die Tochter des 1947 ermordeten Freiheitskämpfers Aung San steht an der Spitze der Protestbewegung gegen das Militärregime in Birma, ist jedoch von der Außenwelt abgeschnitten. Das demokratisch gewählte Oberhaupt Birmas steht seit 1989, mit kurzen Unterbrechungen, unter Hausarrest. In der Zeit ihrer Isolation ist die Friedensnobelpreisträgerin Aung San Suu Kyi zur Symbolfigur für die Auflehnung des Volkes Birma gegen ein grausames Militärregime geworden. Die hier aufgezeichneten Gespräche mit Alan Clements gewähren Einblicke in Aung San Suu Kyis vom Buddhismus geprägtes Leben und ihren Einsatz für den Frieden. Die Neuauflage ist um ein aktuelles Vorwort von Alan Clements, eine umfangreiche Chronologie der Ereignisse in Birma (bis 2008) und zahlreiche Internetlinks zu Birma ergänzt.

The Celtic Christians beheld the world around them and perceived the divine life of God as upholding every aspect of the material universe. Their prayers and poems, their liturgies and theological interpretations give Christians a sense of faith that is confident in a merciful and infinitely creative, healing God.

In diesem Buch aus dem Jahr 1950 hat Fromm erstmals seine Ansichten zur Religion veröffentlicht. Sie sind von seiner Beschäftigung mit der Psychoanalyse ebenso beeinflusst, wie von seiner Auseinandersetzung mit nicht-theistischen Religionen und der Mystik. Fromms Sicht der Religion ist stark davon geprägt, dass er ein autoritäres Religionsverständnis einem humanistischen gegenüberstellt – eine Kontrastierung, die auf der in Psychoanalyse und Ethik ausgeführten Unterscheidung zwischen einer nicht-produktiven und der produktiven Charakterorientierung aufbaut. Da institutionalisierte Volksreligionen in der Regel an den nicht-produktiven Gesellschafts-Charakterorientierungen partizipieren, haben sie nur zu oft negative Wirkungen für das Gelingen des Menschen. Diese Erkenntnis führt bei Fromm zu einer deutlichen Religionskritik, obwohl für ihn das Phänomen des Religiösen ein urmenschliches Phänomen ist. Fromms kritische Auseinandersetzung mit autoritären Religionsphänomenen provozierte eine zum Teil heftig geführte Auseinandersetzung vor allem mit christlichen Theologen des angelsächsischen Raums, die sich gegen Fromms Kritik am calvinistisch geprägten Protestantismus zur Wehr setzten und nicht müde wurden, sein humanistisches Religionsverständnis in Frage zu stellen.

Das Christentum verehrt Jesus von Nazaret als sanften Hirten, dessen Reich nicht von dieser Welt sei. Aber entspricht dieses Bild der historischen Realität? Kann es den grausamen Kreuzestod plausibel erklären? Der amerikanische Religionswissenschaftler Reza Aslan meint: nein. Sein Buch, das in den USA für einen Skandal sorgte, versucht zu ergründen, wer Jesus war, bevor es das Christentum gab. Es ist das fesselnde, brillant erzählte Porträt eines Mannes voller Widersprüche, einer Epoche voll religiöser Inbrunst und blutiger Kämpfe und einer Weltreligion im Werden.

Meet the ministers and laypeople driving foundational Christian theological change and restoring awareness of the sacred value of women and girls. “The Bible teaches that we are made in the image and likeness of God; therefore, I must believe that there is a male and female expression of God…. Claim your divinity and walk in it every day, because you are fearfully and wonderfully made.” —Rev. Dr. Susan Newman, “Claiming Our Divinity” In a world filled with injustice and violence, we long for a new sacred symbolism to inspire transformation. Our yearning includes a widespread hunger for visions of the Female Divine in church life and worship to restore gender-balance and finally achieve just, equal and inclusive faith communities. This collection of engrossing narratives of women and men trying to change the institutional church—and society—illuminates how reclaiming multicultural female images of God extends beyond the sanctuary and into the community. Whether you’re searching for your own place in the church or you want to explore this growing movement, these fascinating pioneers invite you to join the adventure of creating rituals that include Her, affirming the sacred value of all people and all creation.

ABOUT THE BOOK: This book, The Mission of the Holy Spirit, grew out of a series of messages given by Pastor Wade Graber in 1995. Now fifteen years after the initial vision, paradigm shift, and some personal spiritual growth, Wade's hope in penning The Mission of the Holy Spirit is for Christians to more fully understand the presence and ministry of God the Holy Spirit and for unbelievers to receive the indwelling Spirit. The message of the book is quite simple. You are the mission field of God the Holy Spirit. He has numerous things He wants to do in your life that affect your present and your eternity. The Holy Spirit wants to transform you into Christ's image and glorify the Father and the Son. This book and the accompanying songs require uninterrupted worship and meditation in order to experience the richest reality of the Holy Spirit. **** ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Wade C. Graber is a born-again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. He began preaching in 1975 when he had a shoulder-shaking encounter with God at the age of 18. Wade has been pastoring since 1976. He holds a bachelor of arts degree in Bible with a minor in Greek from Sterling College and a master of divinity degree from Central Baptist Theological Seminary. Married to Peggy in 1977, the couple has two children, Evan and Megan. In addition to all of the joys and challenges of pastoral ministry, the Grabers have been blessed to experience missions in various countries including Mexico and Liberia. Evangelistic outreaches are a priority for Graber, but co-laboring with church family members and other organizations have extended his missions efforts into construction, medical, pastor training, orphanages, education, church planting, and other endeavors for the Kingdom.

Christ of the Celts "I explore the Celtic image of Christ as the Memory of what we have forgotten. He remembers the dance of the universe and the harmony that is deep within all things. He is the Memory also of who we are." --from the Prelude "Diagnosing the human soul with a longing for peace in the face of fear and fragmentation nurtured by global political forces and fundamentalisms, Newell offers the ancient traditions of Celtic Christianity as a way forward in healing humankind and the earth." --Publishers Weekly "This graceful, wise, and important book is a superb introduction to the treasures of Celtic Christianity for our time." --Marcus Borg, author, The Heart of Christianity

Nach seinen Bestsellern „Jetzt!“ und „Leben im Jetzt“ geht Eckhart Tolle mit seinem lange erwarteten neuen Buch einen Schritt weiter. „Eine neue Erde“ beschäftigt sich mit dem geistig-seelischen Zustand der Menschheit. Tolle geht davon aus, dass der krankhafte Zustand des menschlichen Geistes zu einer kollektiven Fehlentwicklung geführt hat und wir vor einer gefährlichen Weggabelung stehen. Unsere bisherige Sicht der Welt funktioniert nicht mehr. Wenn wir sie nicht ändern, bewegen wir uns auf zunehmend gefährlichem Terrain mit dem Potenzial zur Selbstzerstörung. Für Tolle existiert jedoch eine Alternative zu diesem düsteren Zukunftsszenario: ein innerer Quantensprung, verbunden mit einem fundamentalen Wandel von unserem alten zu einem gänzlich neuen Bewusstsein. Eckhart Tolle ist davon überzeugt, dass wir am Anfang dieser Bewusstseins-Transformation stehen.

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.

What Is The Big Bang REALITY, and how does it affect The Big Bang Theory? Is there no other approach to The Unifi ed Field Theory? Perhaps Scientists should be content harmonizing The Four Fundamental Forces controlling all matter rather than attempting to unify them. Graviton is not just a hypothetical carrier force of Gravity; it actually exists. Indeed, it may have a zero charge, but it has a Net Zero Restless-Mass and not a rest mass of zero. Is there nothing new that man can learn about The Bermuda Triangle, which science may not have told us? The Sun has an eleven-year activity cycle, and in AD 2018, it should again be in its lull of magnetic activities; what if Tritium, the radioactive isotope of Hydrogen (whose Half-Life is just about twelve years) is much present in The Sun and long already halving? If so, that means in AD 2018, The Sun will become darkened, and so life on Earth will no longer be supported. The Sun will then balloon off into Mercury, and our electronic communication systems will instantly crash, and the whole Universe will experience an irreparable cataclysmic chaos—meaning the end of all Existence and a Closed Universe. Then, The Open Eternal Universe may begin. Truly, the limitation of Science is The Dwelling, Residence, and Habitation of God. Within the boundaries of the failures of Science, there God resides—therein has He decided to disprove the seemingly infallible human Laws of Science—continually invalidating the claims of The Scientists—the followers of Science. Within that same realm of the failures of we humans, therein also has God chosen to Re-Validate His Own Believable Claims as regarding His Conscious and Evidential Existence. If we look much deeper into The Big Bang Theory, we will realize that Truly our Scientists are not wrong—only that there are some obvious misallocations of Divine Nomenclatures, which have grossly been swapped for human terminologies. In Truths, we must understanding that The Big Bang Theory is not just only the postulation of The Galactic Existence, but it is indeed an approach as to trying to explain The Mysteries of The Holy Trinity. And there is more . . . so much more! www.yousayyouloveme.org www.rhabbonilove.org

Convictions, Dialect and Separation: Communications of the Soul is about a boy becoming a man in a world where he must conquer an internal darkness. He ventures into death, ghost and the afterlife forming the foundation of an alternate spiritual world from the other side. Caught in between two worlds, one white like a canvas, the other black like receptive spirituality, the boy encounters the truths of his past, present, and future. His soul learns how to sense these worlds for the first time by crossing the unconscious darkness and finding the light. When one boys purpose was empty, a hollow shell incased his thoughts, until he found the self incarnate. Thus being an inhabitant of a soul, the body strives to express its essence between the two opposing worlds realization and hope. The higher truth struggles to set a tarnished soul free. Then, speech in the book is intended to generate power for the other people in the world to wield their spiritual sword of presence and strength. An underlying nature comes from his internal communication with the divine source of clear consciousness and the universal silence. Consciousness and self-actualization had no barriers and empowered levels of thought, only to find purity and forgiveness. The speculation of the worlds religious freedoms and the happenings of real time have the chance to change everything. When heart is relinquished of all of its fears, the soul will finally reside in a place of comfort inside of a now free body.
