Description

Our Father who art in heaven. . . . Two thousand years have elapsed since these words were first spoken from the Mount of the Beatitudes overlooking the Sea of Galilee. Since that time countless sermons and commentaries have echoed these words, as does this book - but with a difference. Never has the Lord's Prayer been likened to such an array of spiritual themes. The commandments, the Divine Liturgy, the virtues, the Gospels, and then the Apocalypse and the Psalms are all taken in turn and formed into 'verbal icons'. Intricately woven like the knots of a prayer-rope, this book 'tells' the full reach of Christian experience. This is an eminently practical book to be not so much quoted as lived, a modern quest for the heart of Scripture.

"In The Way to Our Heavenly Father, G. John Champoux has given us a great gift, a profound and wide-ranging meditation on the Lord's Prayer, illuminated by scriptural, liturgical, ascetical and theological texts, chosen and assembled with devotion and discernment, that constitutes in toto a serious guide to the life-long ascent toward God. It's hard to imagine anyone reading this book carefully -- or even dipping into it casually—without coming across a passage that will magnify understanding, inspire hope, and deepen faith. A splendid achievement!" -- Philip Zaleski, editor of The Best American Spiritual Writing series

The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
