For more than a decade, bestselling author and international retreat leader Joyce Rupp has written a monthly newsletter offering personal reflections and inspiration from her heart to ours. In Return to the Root, Rupp expands on the best of those reflections to invite all of us who feel overwhelmed by busyness, cut off from the Divine, or adrift in the world to reach solid ground. Through her reflections, as well as new poems and prayers, she guides us to see the essential—what is at the root of our lives and what keeps us rooted—so that we can feel at peace no matter the events of the world around us. Rupp offers meditative, uplifting reflections—grown out of the seasons, the Church’s liturgical life, and the small moments that adorn our days—that escort us through the year. With each reflection, we shift beyond the immediate moment to see the timeless truths within, including choosing to hold on to hope, trusting how God speaks to us and how we experience the Divine, and recognizing that there is always something for which to be grateful. Whether we need to be reminded of important truths or to experience moments of tranquility in a life of nonstop distractions, Rupp’s Return to the Root offers us space to explore the beauty of the world and hold onto those things that sustain our beings and, as the apostle Paul wrote, keep us “rooted and grounded in love.”

The original mindfulness book, in a landmark new translation by the award-winning translator of the I Ching and The Art of War The most translated book in the world after the Bible, the Tao Te Ching, or “Book of the Tao,” is a guide to cultivating a life of peace, serenity, and compassion. Through aphorisms and parable, it leads readers toward the Tao, or the “Way”: harmony with the life force of the universe. Traditionally attributed to Lao-tzu, a Chinese philosopher thought to have been a contemporary of Confucius, it is the essential text of Taoism, one of the three major religions of ancient China. As one of the world’s great works of wisdom literature, it still has much to teach us today, offering a practical model based on modesty and self-restraint for living a balanced existence and for opening your mind, freeing your thoughts, and attaining greater self-awareness. With its emphasis on calm, simplicity, purity, and non-action, it provides a time-tested refuge from the busyness of modern life. This new translation seeks to understand the Tao Te Ching as a guide to everyday living and encourages a slow, meditative reading experience. The Tao Te Ching’s eighty-one brief chapters are accompanied by illuminating commentary, interpretation, poems, and testimonials by the likes of Margaret Mead, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. Specially commissioned calligraphy for more than two hundred Chinese characters illustrates the book’s essential themes.

Liu Zhi (c1662-c1730), a well-known Muslim scholar writing in Chinese, published outstanding theological works, short treatises, and short poems on Islam. While traditional Arabic and Persian Islamic texts used unfamiliar concepts to explain Islam, Liu Zhi translated both text and concepts into Chinese culture. In this erudite volume, David Lee examines how Liu Zhi integrated the basic religious living of the monotheistic Hui Muslims into their pluralistic Chinese culture. Liu Zhi discussed the Prophet Muhammad in Confucian terms, and his work served as a bridge between peoples. This book is an in-depth study of Liu Zhi's contextualization of Islam within Chinese scholarship that argues his merging of the two never deviated from the basic principles of Islamic belief.

The Tao Te Ching is a spiritual, inspirational work that guides us through life, helping us to live within each moment and find the beauty that is all around each of us. Simple, beautiful, and life changing. The Tao Te Ching is fundamental to the Taoist school of Chinese philosophy (Dàojia), and strongly influenced other schools, such as Legalism and Neo-Confucianism. This ancient book is also central in Chinese Buddhism, which when first introduced into China was largely interpreted through the use of Taoist words and concepts. Many Chinese artists, including poets, painters, calligraphers, and even gardeners, have used the Tao Te Ching as a source of inspiration.

GraphQL radically improves the efficiency of web APIs, reducing the number of requests and the volume of data in-transit within your web applications. You can amplify the benefits of GraphQL by adjusting your stack to match GraphQL''s more natural representation of your data as a graph. In Fullstack GraphQL Applications with GRANDstack you''ll learn to build graph-aware end-to-end web applications using GraphQL, React, Apollo, and the Neo4j graph database. about the technology Over-fetching or under-fetching data from REST APIs makes your applications slow and unreliable, especially over weak mobile network connections. The GraphQL query language offers a solution with a new API paradigm, reducing loads by constructing precise graph-based data requests. By adapting your application''s design and data store to leverage graphs throughout the stack, you decrease friction by using a consistent data model improving developer productivity, performance and maintainability. The combination of GraphQL, React, Apollo, and Neo4j Database, aka "the GRANDstack," provides an easily adoptable end-to-end solution perfect for building fullstack GraphQL applications. about the book Fullstack GraphQL Applications with GRANDstack teaches you to leverage the power of GraphQL to create modern APIs that streamline data loads by allowing client applications to selectively fetch only the data required. contributor and GraphQL Foundation member William Lyon teaches you everything you need to know to design, deploy, and maintain a GraphQL API from scratch and create graph-aware fullstack web applications. In this project-driven book, you''ll build a complete business reviews application using the cutting-edge GRANDstack, learning how the different parts fit together. Chapter-by-chapter, you''ll master creating a GraphQL service with Apollo Server, modelling a GraphQL API with GraphQL type definitions, installing the Neo4j Database on different platforms, and more. By the time you''re done, you''ll be able to deploy all of the components of a serverless fullstack application in a secure and cost-effective way that takes full advantage of GraphQL''s performance capabilities. Along the way, you''ll also get tips for applying these techniques to other stacks. what''s inside Building the backend functionality of a GraphQL application Handling authentication and authorization with GraphQL Implementing pagination and rate limiting in a GraphQL API Create a basic frontend application using React and Apollo Client about the reader Aimed at developers comfortable building web applications using tools like Django, Rails, or MEAN stack and standard SQL-based databases.
