Angels, Spirits, principalities, powers, gods, Satanthese, along with all other spiritual realities, are the unmentionables of our culture. The dominant materialistic worldview has absolutely no place for them. But materialism itself is terminally ill, and, let us hope, in process of replacement by a worldview capable of honoring the lasting values of modern science without succumbing to reductionism. Therefore, we find ourselves returning to the ancient traditions, searching for wisdom wherever it may be found. We do not capitulate to the past and its superstitions, but bring all the gifts our race has acquired along the way as aids in recovering the lost language of our souls. In Naming the Powers I developed the thesis that the New Testament's principalities and powers is a generic category referring to the determining forces of physical, psychic, and social existence. In the present volume we will be focusing on just seven of the Powers mentioned in Scripture. Their selection out of all the others dealt with in Naming the Powers is partly arbitrary: they happen to be ones about which I felt I had something to say. But they are also representative, and open the way to comprehending the rest. They are: Satan, demons, angels of churches, angels of nations, gods, elements, and angels of nature.

This culmination of award-winning author Andrew Harvey’s life’s work bridges the great divide between spiritual resignation and engaged spiritual activism. A manifesto for the transformation of the world through the fusion of deep mystical peace with the clarity of radical wisdom, it is a wake-up call to put love and compassion to urgent, focused action. According to Harvey, we are in a massive global crisis reflected by a mass media addicted to violence and trivialization at a moment when what the world actually needs is profound inspiration, a return to the heart-centered way of the Divine Feminine, the words of the mystics throughout the ages, and the cultivation of the nonviolent philosophies of Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Aung San Suu Kyi, and the Dalai Lama. Harvey’s concepts of radical passion and sacred activism fly in the face of restraint, of pessimism, of denial, of all that is inhumane, fusing the mystic’s passion for God with the activist’s passion for justice and for healing the division between heaven and earth, heart and will, body and soul, prayer and action. Sacred activism asks that we engage deeply on a personal, spiritual, and political level so as to become a fully empowered, fully active, and contemplative humanity that can turn tragedy into grace, and desolation into the opportunity to build and co-create a new world. Unlike many spiritual books, Radical Passion does not veil the dark with artificial hope. It explores the catastrophes of our current times and celebrates the ecstatic hope and divinity that is possible—right now and in the future. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The identity of the Antichrist has been a mystery for many years until now. UNMASKING THE BEAST: THE SECOND REIGN OF JFK is an intriguing book that will attempt to corroborate that JFK is the end-time Beast of Revelations. I know that many individuals will find my theory extremely difficult to believe. In fact, even my own wife is skeptical because, after all, JFK is dead. However, the Bible is a supernatural book and the appearance of the Antichrist will be a supernatural event. "And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed and all the world wondered after the beast." (Rev. 13.3 KJ) When it happens the entire world will be shocked, including my wife. After evaluating all of the evidence from the scriptures, along with an unbelievable chain of historical events, the correlation to JFK is unmistakable. I find it highly improbable that any individual other than JFK could be the one. JFK IS THE ONE! HE WILL RETURN TO REIGN AGAIN! IF YOU READ THE 'LEFT BEHIND' SERIES THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ!

"The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them." Albert Einstein. The current crises besetting humanity call for a revolution in consciousness and a mystical renaissance that will bring about a whole new story of what it means to be human. To this end, Consciousness v Catastrophe introduces the reader to the new philosophy of Evolutionary Spirituality. It is a philosophy that is engaging visionary scientists, philosophers and spiritual thinkers across the planet. They are forging a new understanding of evolution that honours science, reframes culture and radically updates spirituality. Evolutionary Spirituality celebrates the realization that the creative energy, that has driven the evolution of the universe for billions of years, is now becoming conscious of itself through us. It sees consciousness, not matter, as centre stage in the mystery that is evolution and reconnects us to the sacred dimension of existence. Above all, it helps to liberate us from the contracting concerns of ego, inspiring us to awaken our mystical and creative potential, and serve the bigger picture with humility, gratitude and a profound sense of our unique purpose. The first half of the book looks at the Big Picture of evolution- physical and cultural - and brings the reader into the revolutionary implications of seeing human consciousness as the emerging driving force of evolution replacing natural selection. The second half explores the new story of Evolutionary Spirituality, including its compatibility with contemporary scientific knowledge and the possibilities for consciousness that can be gleaned from the spiritual wisdom of mystics from all times and traditions. With the help of profound quotations and website references, the book aims to inspire the reader to explore the teachings of many of the most prominent evolutionaries who, in their writings and in online conversations and courses, are promoting the consciousness revolution across the planet.

Author: Chris Cole
Finalist in Religious Non-Fiction and Spirituality for 2016 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Struggling with lifelong disordered eating and adolescent addiction, Chris Cole had his first psychotic episode at the age of eighteen, suddenly believing he was the Second Coming of Christ. He lost his identity and tried to perform miracles and was ultimately arrested in the lobby of his college dormitory—all while convinced he was being taken to his crucifixion. Even when sanity returned, he could not help but contemplate God's involvement. For years, Chris danced with delusion, but he eventually surrendered to his humanity and learned to embrace reality. The Body of Chris explores mental illness—from bipolar disorder to substance use to binge eating—in one man’s search for salvation. From his oldest wounds to his renewed spirituality, author Chris Cole tells his story with unflinching honesty in hopes of reaching people who suffer from mental illness and those who love them.

Category: Biography & Autobiography
The Love That Connects Us All is the moving and honest story of author Brigitta Beer's exploration through the dark night of the soul. She validates her experience through the writings of mystics past and present, including Jesus, Rumi, John de Cross, Meister Eckhart, Hildegard of Bingen, Teresa of Avila, the Sufis, Dante, Dorothy Walters, Rilke and Caroline Myss. Beer describes the stages of her journey and her spiritual development, relating them to the four paths of Creation Spirituality. She also likens the experience to finding the philosopher's stone in her own heart. It is a journey of longing and unity that, in the end, can only be found through the love in her own heart. Beer shows us a mystical path that has no boundaries and can be a path for everyone-a path into the healing of your "self."
