An Uncommon Sense by Joe LoMusio Summary

“Oh Taste and See that the LORD is Good!” David’s ancient declaration in Psalm34:8 can have profound implications for us today. His reference to two of our five natural senses opens the door to a study of unique proportions. Think of it? Not only these two senses, but all five our physical senses in the Bible have spiritual depth and understanding. They cry out to us to explore them and learn their meaning. An Un-Common Sense is just such a study! This book will probe the depths of our five physical senses... Tasting... Seeing... Hearing... Smelling... Touching... And then seek to understand how these God-giving physical dynamics translate into our spiritual lives. Added to these five will also be a much-needed look at what could be called our “sixth sense” – the Spirit sense. In many respects it is the most remarkable one of all! It is what makes the other five work in the spiritual realm. Join author, pastor, and educator, Joe LoMusio on a journey engaging what David challenges us to do! Taste and See... have Ears to hear... share the Aroma of Christ... and Touch the hem of His garment!

Ending the Search by Dorothy S. Hunt Summary

What is life when seeking ends? Just what is, nothing more or less— an ordinary person doing ordinary things, not wishing to be more or less, content to simply be herSelf. —Dorothy Hunt, Only This Do you ever feel as if your spiritual search is getting you nowhere? That despite sincere intention and effort, you’re reaping frustration instead of fruit? In Ending the Search, Dorothy Hunt unravels a dilemma that has vexed countless people on a spiritual path. “You may have tried all manner of practices, meditation, guru shopping, chanting, prayer, and still you have not attained your heart’s desire,” she writes. “This book is about the ego’s spiritual ambition, its search for its idea of ‘enlightenment,’ its struggles and its eventual fate as seeker becomes the sought.” Ending the Search explores the deep spiritual impulse to awaken and the ways a future-focused mind “co-opts” or veils what is timelessly free, loving, and ever present. Dorothy invites us to follow our longing for truth, love, or enlightenment back to their source—the Heart that is beckoning us beyond separation. While describing and honoring different practices and paths taken in one’s search for Truth, she emphasizes the practice of self-inquiry as taught by Ramana Maharshi. We are invited to search not for an idea of something “out there,” but for the true identity of the seeker, the unnamable Mystery that is compassionately aware, existing right now in each of us. The book also looks at the processes of embodiment and surrender, the need for “ruthless honesty” without self-judgment, and in its concluding section, shares a vision of life lived authentically. “The spiritual search is a call to remember who or what you essentially are,” explains Dorothy Hunt. “What ends the search is actually present from the very beginning, beckoning you to come Home. In truth, you are what you seek, yet you must make the discovery for yourself.” This is your invitation, with Ending the Search. Highlights: • The nature of spiritual ambition • When practice becomes problematic • How the thinking mind separates us from the moment • Silence and stillness, our greatest teachers • Ego and the trance of separation • The human heart as a doorway to the infinite • The freedom of Presence • The price of Realization • Gurus, spiritual teachers, and charlatans • Undoing core egoic beliefs • Resting the mind in the Heart of Awareness

Touched by the Dragon by Frank L. Grzyb Summary

Touched by the Dragon is a collection of gripping narratives of Vietnam veterans from Newport County, Rhode Island. We learn of the experiences of men and women, the enlisted and officers, those in combat and those behind the lines, in a way that resonates far beyond Rhode Island. What makes this book truly unique is its absence of literary pretensions. These oral accounts speak in a no-nonsense, matter-of-fact way. Personalities emerge as the veterans discuss their prewar days, their training and preparation for Vietnam, their in-country experiences - some heroic, some frightening, some amusing, some nearly unbelievable - and their return to a country that didn't value their sacrifice.

Touched by the Hand of God by Jerry A. Gladson Summary

The book of Job is an epic poetic work of the highest order, unmatched in the world’s literature for its depth of feeling and emotion, sensitivity toward human suffering, magnificence of language, and narrative and poetic artistry. At the same time, it is one of the most perplexing books in the Bible. Dr. Jerry Gladson, a seasoned minister and professor of religion, not only presents a comprehensive interpretation of the biblical text, but also confronts religion’s greatest dilemma: Why do innocent people suffer? While highlighting the problem of evil as presented in the classic book of Job, he thoroughly explains each passage and offers a thorough introduction to Job and its ancient Near Eastern context that demonstrates the astounding relevance of Job for contemporary readers. Through it all, Dr. Gladson’s commentary proves that even in today’s modern world, Job still speaks to the needs of the suffering. Touched by the Hand of God shares an enlightening, spiritual study of Job—one of the Bible’s great books of wisdom.

Paradigms for a Metaphorology by Hans Blumenberg Summary

What role do metaphors play in philosophical language? Are they impediments to clear thinking and clear expression, rhetorical flourishes that may well help to make philosophy more accessible to a lay audience, but that ought ideally to be eradicated in the interests of terminological exactness? Or can the images used by philosophers tell us more about the hopes and cares, attitudes and indifferences that regulate an epoch than their carefully elaborated systems of thought? In Paradigms for a Metaphorology, originally published in 1960 and here made available for the first time in English translation, Hans Blumenberg (1920-1996) approaches these questions by examining the relationship between metaphors and concepts. Blumenberg argues for the existence of "absolute metaphors" that cannot be translated back into conceptual language. "Absolute metaphors" answer the supposedly naïve, theoretically unanswerable questions whose relevance lies quite simply in the fact that they cannot be brushed aside, since we do not pose them ourselves but find them already posed in the ground of our existence. They leap into a void that concepts are unable to fill. An afterword by the translator, Robert Savage, positions the book in the intellectual context of its time and explains its continuing importance for work in the history of ideas.

They call on the West to embrace a spiritual rather than political renewal -and to accept the moral values that alone can help us to make sense of changes in technology, economics, and society.

Plato's Animals by Jeremy Bell,Michael Naas Summary

“A unique and intriguing point of entry into the dialogues and a variety of concerns from metaphysics and epistemology to ethics, politics, and aesthetics.” —Eric Sanday, University of Kentucky Plato’s Animals examines the crucial role played by animal images, metaphors, allusions, and analogies in Plato’s dialogues. These fourteen lively essays demonstrate that the gadflies, snakes, stingrays, swans, dogs, horses, and other animals that populate Plato’s work are not just rhetorical embellishments. Animals are central to Plato’s understanding of the hierarchy between animals, humans, and gods and are crucial to his ideas about education, sexuality, politics, aesthetics, the afterlife, the nature of the soul, and philosophy itself. The volume includes a comprehensive annotated index to Plato’s bestiary in both Greek and English. “Plato’s Animals is a strong volume of beautifully written paeans to postmodern themes found in premodern thought.” —Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews “Shows readers of Plato that he remains significant to issues currently pursued in Continental thought and especially in relation to Derrida and Heidegger.” —Robert Metcalf, University of Colorado, Denver “Will provide fertile ground for future work in this area.” —Jill Gordon, author of Plato’s Erotic World

With a growing awarenss of the dignity of all life and its connection with them, women can overcome the social conditioning and myth-making that overwhelm and oppress them.For those women new to Buddhist meditation, Christina Feldman offers sensitive and valuable guidelines on breathing and relaxation—stressing, above all, that learning to understand, appreciate, and value themselves is the first step toward women's creative and joyful integration with the world.

Touched by Divine Love by Samantha Richards Summary

From a young age, Samantha Richards knew things that others didn’t, saw things that others couldn’t, and said things that others simply couldn’t understand. She had the sight, the ability to see “beyond” and deliver messages. This ability, which some might consider a gift, was the source of great stress and pain for the young woman. After an out-of-body experience in her teens, she stopped the spirits from speaking to her through their usual routes, and life became quieter. In 2000, at the age of thirty-one, tragedy struck when her first child died during delivery. In her grief and her anger at God, she shut her gifts down for good, vowing never to give another person a message from beyond. She excommunicated herself from the Catholic faith and from God, furious that such a pure, innocent soul had been taken. For nine years, her heart was filled with hatred—and then a miracle happened: after her guardian angel healed her heart, Samantha didn’t know how to hate anymore. A year later, she witnessed angels protecting her plane. With these invitations, she welcomed the spirits back into her life, with joy and hope. In Touched by Divine Love, Samantha shares the astonishing details of her path back to her true spiritual self. Now a personal and spiritual development leader, psychic medium, and healer, she hopes that others will see themselves as beings of raw potential—and reach for their true selves in the process.

Seeking Our Humanity Part Ii by Claudia Helt Summary

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” Anthropologist Margaret Mead’s famous quote may come to mind as you read this second volume in the Seeking Our Humanity series. In the first book, a small group of friends learned that the environmental crisis plaguing the Earth was not only grounded in our material pollution of land, seas and skies. A mysterious traveler from another plane of existence taught them that the Life Being Earth feels the anger, hatred, violence, and cruelty that people bear toward one another; they poison her life’s very essence. Gently and firmly, he emphasized the urgency of the crisis and the gravity of the stakes: Earth will soon reach a tipping point that will make her uninhabitable for humankind. The mysterious guest invited them to join with beings throughout the universe to rescue the Earth, and taught them the simple steps that they could take daily to help her heal from this invisible, deadly toxicity. Called and empowered to be part of the solution, they joined forces to do so. In this installment, the commitment of these twelve dear friends to the mission deepens and expands. As they hone their skills, they confront the deep-seated doubts and fears that arise from so daunting a challenge. Readers find themselves embraced in the tender compassion that permeates their relationships, the deep listening and encouragement that they share with one another. Those who seek to heal the Earth, find healing themselves.

Touched by Christ: The Sacramental Economy by Lawrence Feingold Summary

The sacramental economy was instituted by Christ and entrusted to His Church in order to build up the Body of Christ in a twofold communion: binding the members together with God and one another. Touched by Christ: The Sacramental Economy is an introductory course on Sacramental Theology suitable for all who seek a deeper understanding of how the Church’s sacraments constitute channels of grace, nurture supernatural life, and heal us from our sins. Lawrence Feingold expertly describes the nature of the sacraments; their purpose, fittingness, and relationship with Christ and the New Covenant; their relationship with the Old Covenant rites that prefigured them; the character and grace that they communicate; and the nature of their causality. Touched by Christ shows that the sacraments of the New Covenant should be understood as instruments of Christ’s humanity that are used as words of power to communicate the sanctification that they signify, infuse grace, communicate the Holy Spirit, and build up ecclesial communion in those who receive them with the right dispositions.

Truth and Tolerance by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger Summary

Is truth knowable? If we know the truth, must we hide it in the name of tolerance? Cardinal Ratzinger engages the problem of truth, tolerance, religion and culture in the modern world. Describing the vast array of world religions, Ratzinger embraces the difficult challenge of meeting diverse understandings of spiritual truth while defending the Catholic teaching of salvation through Jesus Christ. "But what if it is true?" is the question that he poses to cultures that decry the Christian position on man's redemption. Upholding the notion of religious truth while asserting the right of religious freedom, Cardinal Ratzinger outlines the timeless teaching of the Magisterium in language that resonates with our embattled culture. A work of extreme sensitivity, understanding, and spiritual maturity, this book is an invaluable asset to those who struggle to hear the voice of truth in the modern religious world. "Beyond all particular questions, the real problem lies in the question about truth. Can truth be recognized? Or, is the question about truth simply inappropriate in the realm of religion and belief? But what meaning does belief then have, what positive meaning does religion have, if it cannot be connected with truth?" —Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger From the Preface

The Pulse of Sense by Marie Chabbert,Nikolaas Deketelaere Summary

This volume stages a series of encounters between the French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy and leading scholars of his work along four major themes of Nancy’s thought: sense, experience, existence, and Christianity. In doing so, the volume seeks to remind readers that Nancy’s sens has many meanings in French: aside from those that easily carry over into English, i.e., everything to do with "meaning" and "the senses"; it also includes the "way" they are "conducted," the "direction" they take, the "thrust" or "pulse" in which the circulation of sense exists. Faithful to this plural understanding of sens, the writings collected here aim to join Jean-Luc Nancy in the process of "making-sense" that animates his thinking, rather than to deliver a definitive summary of his position on any given issue. They are conceived of as notes "along the way," documenting "encounters" as moments of "(re)direction" and recording the "pulse" of sense that animates them. In that spirit, Nancy himself has provided each contribution with an "echo" in which he, in turn, responds to each author and thereby continues their mutual encounter. Aside from these echoes, this volume includes an original essay in which Nancy reflects upon the international trajectory of his thinking; a trajectory that is to be and undoubtedly will be continued, in many different directions, across and around the world. The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of Angelaki.

Hearts Touched by Fire by Harold Holzer Summary

In July 1883, just a few days after the twentieth anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, a group of editors at The Century Magazine engaged in a lively argument: Which Civil War battle was the bloodiest battle of them all? One claimed it was Chickamauga, another Cold Harbor. The argument inspired a brainstorm: Why not let the magazine’s 125,000 readers in on the conversation by offering “a series of papers on some of the great battles of the war to be written by officers in command on both sides.” The articles would be written by generals, Union and Confederate alike, who had commanded the engagements two decades earlier—“or, if he were not living,” by “the person most entitled to speak for him or in his place.” The pieces would present both sides of each major battle, and would be fair and free of politics. In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the most enduring entries from the classic four-volume series Battles and Leaders of the Civil War have now been edited and merged into one definitive volume. Here are the best of the immortal first-person accounts of the Civil War originally published in the pages of The Century Magazine more than a hundred years ago. Hearts Touched by Fire offers stunning accounts of the war’s great battles written by the men who planned, fought, and witnessed them, from leaders such as General Ulysses S. Grant, General George McClellan, and Confederate captain Clement Sullivane to men of lesser rank. This collection also features new year-by-year introductions by esteemed historians, including James M. McPherson, Craig L. Symonds, and James I. Robertson, Jr., who cast wise modern eyes on the cataclysm that changed America and would go down as the bloodiest conflict in our nation’s history. No one interested in our country’s past will want to be without this collection of the most popular and influential first-person Civil War memoirs ever published.

Her clan is plunged into destitution, her beautiful sister, Waivia, sold into slavery, and her mother lost to madness. Desperate to find Waivia, Zarq and her delirious mother flee through the underworld of their land. Consumed with the desire for revenge, Zarq develops a taste for the highly addictive venom of the dragons she has been taught to revere—and with this poison, she imbibes their memories and glimpses a plot for social revolution. But to achieve it, she must defy not just sexual taboos and patriarchal conventions, but the Emperor who rules her nation.

Touched by God by Charles Muller Summary

The contributors to this little volume are or were remarkable people whom the Lord had touched in one way or another, manifesting His divine love and miraculous power. It was the editor's own unexpected experience of the Lord's power and presence that, in 1984, changed his life and caused him to forsake his academic career in South Africa and move to the United Kingdom where he could obey his mission to write. It was also that remarkable experience of His power that made him seek out others whom the Lord had touched while he was still living in South Africa. This little book is the result of that quest.

Lives Touched by Emma by Joan Sy Dick Summary

Emma came into the world and captured her father's heart. But because of alcohol, Emma's father was this fierce tyrant to his wife and his boys. Nonetheless, nothing could ever displease him when it came to his sweet girl, Emma. However, when her Papa finally left for another woman, Emma was left at a tender age to tend for her family, a role she took upon herself with determination and dedication. Life was hard, but Emma faced every trial with hope that as long as she did not give up, life would get better. She was a dreamer with a plan, as her tenacity and hard work proved. Against all odds, she would love a man that she was not intended to have by the prevalent laws of culture and society. But how could he give her up when his heart vowed from the first time he laid eyes on her that life was meaningless without her. There were countless obstacles they had to overcome to be together. As a mother, she discovered that motherhood was a privilege as much as a sacrifice, a role she cherished most. As a wife, she was her husband's greatest supporter even when she fought not to at times. Together they would discover the one truth they both love and agree upon, the restored Gospel. She was an example of patience, understanding, compassion, faith, and unconditional love. She had the capacity to give of herself and touch lives, care for and accept all without discrimination. She was a cherished friend to all that knew her, rich or poor, popular or disliked, literate or ignorant. She loved every soul, and everyone loved her. How could they not? She gave abundantly and loved genuinely. Thus, she was her family's shining star and to others a true friend.

Retrieving Origins and the Claim of Multiculturalism by Antonio Lopez,Javier Prades Summary

This book explores the philosophical, legal, and theological roots of Western multiculturalism, that is, the encounter and coexistence of different cultures within a liberal society. Rather than concerning themselves with the particulars of cultural dialogue, the authors of this volume go deeper and question the very reality of "multiculturalism" itself. As a whole the volume devotes attention to the origins of human nature, arguing that regardless of how different another person or culture seems to be, universal human experience discloses what it means to be human and to relate to others and to God. The contributors represent different cultures and faith traditions but are united in friendship and in the conviction that the Christian faith enables an authentic approach to long-standing debates on multiculturalism.

Touched by Flame by Kimber White Summary

This daughter of dragons has learned to hide to survive. Until she meets the only man with the power to set her true heart free...or destroy her. Mia My whole life I’ve been trained to hide what I am. Run. Lie. Survive. One night, my worst nightmare caught up with me. His name is Viktor. The strongest Alpha wolf I’ve ever encountered. And I’ve known them all. Dark. Dangerous. Raw. Sensual. I could have fought. I could have run. But then he would have known my true self. To a ruthless bounty hunter like Viktor, my secret is far too valuable. Now, I’m his prisoner. My body. My life is at his mercy. At least, that’s what I need him to think. I should break free. I know I can. And yet...I don’t. He wants to keep me for himself. Claim me. Mark me. Own me. His darkest nature ignites a fire within me I never knew I had. My head tells me to run. But my heart and primal instinct tells me to let him have what he wants. All of me. Viktor She was just a job. A means to an end. A bargain I made with the devil to set myself and my pack free for good. Then I saw her. Beautiful. Sheltered. Protected her whole life from the horrors I and shifters like me have had to face. Then I touched her. Flawless skin. Pouty lips begging to be kissed. A perfect body that bends to mine on instinct when I reach for her. Then I knew her name. She belongs to me. Her family swore an oath to mine. One I mean to make her honor. In body. In soul. In fate. I see the fire in her eyes. She’s oh so innocent, but wild. Untamed. She has secrets she thinks she can hide from me. She can’t. I see her. I know what she is. Mine. And I’ll have her. No matter the price. No matter the danger Even if it destroys us both.

The Truth Within by Gavin Flood Summary

The idea that there is a truth within the person linked to the discovery of a deeper, more fundamental, more authentic self, has been a common theme in many religions throughout history and an idea that is still with us today. This inwardness or interiority unique to me as an essential feature of who I am has been an aspect of culture and even a defining characteristic of human being; an authentic, private sphere to which we can retreat that is beyond the conflicts of the outer world. This inner world becomes more real than the outer, which is seen as but a pale reflection. Remarkably, the image of the truth within is found across cultures and this book presents an account of this idea in the pre-modern history of Christianity, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Furthermore, in theistic religions, Christianity and some forms of Hinduism, the truth within is conflated with the idea of God within and in all cases this inner truth is thought to be not only the heart of the person, but also the heart of the universe itself. Gavin Flood examines the metaphor of inwardness and the idea of truth within, along with the methods developed in religions to attain it such as prayer and meditation. These views of inwardness that link the self to cosmology can be contrasted with a modern understanding of the person. In examining the truth within in Christianity, Hinduism, and Buddhism, Flood offers a hermeneutical phenomenology of inwardness and a defence of comparative religion.

Sanctify them in the Truth by Stanley Hauerwas Summary

In Sanctify them in the Truth Stanley Hauerwas provides an overview of the development of theology and ethics. He considers how the two disciplines interrelate, discusses the nature of sin, how any account of sin requires a more determinative account of moral law, the nature of sanctification, the body as a subject for Christian holiness, and the relationship between sanctification and truthfulness. The volume ends with sermons - Hauerwas emphasizes the freedom the sermons create, as they remind us that the words we use are not our words. The inclusion of sermons also underlines Hauerwas' point that the truth of the gospel cannot be discovered apart from its embodiment in specific communities of faith. The Christian life, he argues, is not about being in possession of "the truth," defined as a set of timeless and universal principles of belief and action. Rather, it is about learning and living the life of truthfulness toward God and one another. For this Cornerstones edition Hauerwas has provided a new preface that places the work in the present debate and brings this remarkable work to a new audience.

Inventing the Truth by Russell Baker,Jill Ker Conway,Frank McCourt,Eileen Simpson,Henry Louis Gates,Alfred Kazin,Annie Dillard,Ian Frazier,Toni Morrison Summary

The author of On Writing Well presents stories and advice on the writing process from Frank McCourt, Annie Dillard, and many more. For anyone who enjoys reading memoirs—or is thinking about writing one—this collection offers a master class from nine distinguished authors: Russell Baker, Jill Ker Conway, Annie Dillard, Ian Frazier, Henry Louis Gates Jr., Alfred Kazin, Frank McCourt, Toni Morrison, and Eileen Simpson. “Annie Dillard talks of her Pittsburgh childhood and her moment of waking to the world outside. Russell Baker explains why his first draft of Growing Up was so bad that he had to start over again. Alfred Kazin finds that writing about his Brooklyn childhood connected him with the great tradition of Emerson and Whitman. Toni Morrison tells why her fiction uses not only family history but the slave narratives of her people. Lewis Thomas traces the evolution of his singular self from primeval bacteria to contemporary scientist whose drive to be useful is the most fundamental of all biological necessities. . . . Delightful and instructive.” —Library Journal
