Forming Humanity Book Excerpt:

Kant’s proclamation of humankind’s emergence from “self-incurred immaturity” left his contemporaries with a puzzle: What models should we use to sculpt ourselves if we no longer look to divine grace or received authorities? Deftly uncovering the roots of this question in Rhineland mysticism, Pietist introspection, and the rise of the bildungsroman, Jennifer A. Herdt reveals bildung, or ethical formation, as the key to post-Kantian thought. This was no simple process of secularization, in which human beings took responsibility for something they had earlier left in the hands of God. Rather, theorists of bildung, from Herder through Goethe to Hegel, championed human agency in self-determination while working out the social and political implications of our creation in the image of God. While bildung was invoked to justify racism and colonialism by stigmatizing those deemed resistant to self-cultivation, it also nourished ideals of dialogical encounter and mutual recognition. Herdt reveals how the project of forming humanity lives on in our ongoing efforts to grapple with this complicated legacy.

Can Humanity Change Book Excerpt:

Many have considered Buddhism to be the religion closest in spirit to J. Krishnamurti's spiritual teaching—even though the great teacher was famous for urging students to seek truth outside organized religion. This record of a historic encounter between Krishnamurti and a group of Buddhist scholars provides a unique opportunity to see what the great teacher had to say himself about Buddhist teachings. The conversations, which took place in London in the late 1970s, focused on human consciousness and its potential for transformation. Participants include Walpola Rahula, the renowned Sri Lankan Buddhist monk and scholar, author of the classic introductory text What the Buddha Taught.

Christ s Humanity in Current and Ancient Controversy Fallen or Not Book Excerpt:

Was Christ's human nature fallen, even sinful? From the 18th century to the present, this view has become increasingly prominent in Reformed theological circles and beyond, despite vigorous opposition. Both sides on the issue see it as vital for understanding the nature of salvation. Each side's advocates appeal to or critique the Church Fathers. This book reviews the history and present state of the debate, then surveys the connections, distinctions, and patristic interpretations of five of the modern fallenness view's proponents (Edward Irving, Karl Barth, T. F. Torrance, Colin Gunton, and Thomas Weinandy) and five of its opponents (Marcus Dods the Elder, A. B. Bruce, H. R. Mackintosh, Philip Hughes, and Donald Macleod). The book verifies the views of the ten most-cited Fathers: five Greek (Irenaeus, Athanasius, Gregory Nazianzen, Gregory Nyssen, and Cyril of Alexandria) and five Latin (Tertullian, Hilary of Poitiers, Ambrose, Augustine, and Leo the Great). The study concludes by sketching the implications of its findings for the doctrines of the Immaculate Conception, sin, sanctification, and Scripture.

Nature God and Humanity Book Excerpt:

Nature, God and Humanity clarifies the task of forming an ethics of nature, thereby empowering readers to develop their own critical, faith-based ethics. Calling on original, thought-provoking analyses and arguments, Richard L. Fern frames a philosophical ethics of nature, assesses it scientifically, finds support for it in traditional biblical theism, and situates it culturally. Though defending the moral value of beliefs affirming the radical Otherness of God and human uniqueness, this book aims not to compel the adoption of any particular ethic but rather illumine the contribution diverse forms of inquiry make to an ethics of nature. How does philosophy clarify moral conviction? What does science tell us about nature? Why does religious faith matter? Rejecting the illusion of a single, rationally-compelling ethics, Fern answers these questions in a way that fosters both agreement and disagreement, allowing those holding conflicting ethics of nature to work together for the common good.

The Transformation of Humanity Book Excerpt:

The Transformation of Humanity is the one-hundred and sixth instalment in the Little Blue Book Series and comprises both the third and fourth discourses of the Octadoxy, which is itself the eighth disquisition of the Omnidoxy, Astronism’s founding text. The Transformation of Humanity, followed by The Paucity of Cosmic Thinking discourse, both consists of a myriad of musings and teachings on the future of humanity, the need for humanity’s mentality regarding their place in The Cosmos to change, as well as emphasising the importance of the achievement of transcension. The Little Blue Book Series was created and first published by Cometan himself as a way to simplify and commercialise the immensity of the two million word length of the Omnidoxy into smaller, more bite-size publications. A successful series from its very first published entry, the Little Blue Book Series has gone on to become a symbol of Astronist commercial literature and a way for Cometan’s words to reach readers of all ages and abilities who remain daunted by the beauty and yet the sheer extensiveness of the Omnidoxy as the longest religious text in history.

Stop Humanity s Roots Live Book Excerpt:

For nearly eight decades of life, I have not witnessed a single change in the nature of humans but recognize that all humans possess the same cognitive "traits and characteristics" differentiated only by scale or degree. Environment and opportunity influence these (not nature). Briefly, this book was prompted by what I would refer to as the audacity of modernity. That is that is that somehow, modern conveniences including technology has rewarded the current generation superior to all that came before. In this writing, we will see that changing one's circumstances without a change of heart is a fool's errand. "Francesco Sardina has done a masterful job of summarizing and evaluating 6000 years of human history from the Garden of Eden to our world of COVID-19. The book is philosophical and reflective (good for us seniors) and requires us to put on our thinking caps as we read. It's an up-to-date critique of modern day society as well as ancient societies. The author notes that as a pattern nations rise and fall throughout time, and warns us that the US is no exception. In fact he shows that in spite of scientific and technological advances even now the US is showing definite signs of decline. He implies that unless we want to repeat history, we should put our houses in order and return to the basics. We should choose 'truth, goodness and beauty' over 'power mongering, sexual incontinence and treasure hoarding'. Without being pushy, the author recommends that we as a nation return to the 'virtues of honesty and integrity given in the Christian Bible'. The first half of the book covers world history from 4000 BC. The second half begins in 1940 and brings us up to the present. Skillfully woven are comments about the author's own biography. I came away thinking that this book is a must read for all members of our US Congress, as well as for all those of us concerned with the current direction of our nation. I found it rewarding to read and highly recommend it to you." -Dr. Ronald L. Trail "It took me about two months of reading on and off, but I finished reading your book "Stop! Humanity's Roots Live" this afternoon. My daughter Lisa bought a copy from Amazon after I mentioned to her that my best man from 42 years ago was now an accomplished author. She read your book cover-to-cover before leaving it with me as a gift. When I asked her how she liked it, she refused to answer and just said I needed to read it myself and make my own decision unbiased by her opinion. What a read! I must admit that early on, my expectations were mediocre at best. But it took a bit of time for me to be comfortable with your grammar and writing style (which admittedly was a bit above my pay grade). But as I got into the meat of your narrative, I absolutely enjoyed reading your book. I especially enjoyed your discussion about the "makers" and "takers" since I have thought similarly for quite some time. Many of your personal stories were familiar to me, having known you during your transition period from city slicker to farmer and land owner; however, you provided details heretofore unknown to me that occasionally brought a tear to my eye. One such detail involved early struggles with your "affliction," and another being the enduring love, motivation and support from your beautiful wife Connie. The sequence of events expounded upon on a decade-by-decade basis was easy to follow and informative to boot. Harmony ... we could use a bit more of that in our daily lives for sure. Nice job!" -Life-long distant friend, Russ Anderson

Seeking Our Humanity Part Ii Book Excerpt:

“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.

Progressive Creation and the Struggles of Humanity in the Bible Book Excerpt:

Why does the Christian walk often feel like an ongoing struggle and why does God’s creation include imperfection, let alone forces that are intent on thwarting God’s creative work? In seeking a response to these questions, this book argues that the biblical accounts describe creation in terms of a progressive transformation process whereby the initially incomplete created order will reach perfection only in the fulfillment of new creation. The following discussion then outlines a comprehensive framework for the biblical theology of humanity’s struggles, centered on three key themes: corporeal temptation, deficient social structures, and the much-debated notion of spiritual warfare. The book presents an overarching canonical narrative that threads together a series of diverse biblical topics, from Job's temptation to the Atonement. The final part surveys biblical teaching on how human conduct can be aligned with God’s creative purpose, and discusses three “assignments” from Jesus to believers: to celebrate the Eucharist, to pray the Lord’s Prayer, and to fulfill the Great Commission.

The Ascent of Humanity Book Excerpt:

Charles Eisenstein explores the history and potential future of civilization, tracing the converging crises of our age to the illusion of the separate self. In this limited hardcover edition of Eisenstein's landmark book, he argues that our disconnection from one another and the natural world has mislaid the foundations of science, religion, money, technology, economics, medicine, and education as we know them. It has fired our near-pathological pursuit of technological Utopias even as we push ourselves and our planet to the brink of collapse. Fortunately, an Age of Reunion is emerging out of the birth pangs of an earth in crisis. Our journey of separation hasn't been a terrible mistake but an evolutionary process and an adventure in self-discovery. Even in our darkest hour, Eisenstein sees the possibility of a more beautiful world--not through the extension of millennia-old methods of management and control but by fundamentally reimagining ourselves and our systems. We must shift away from our Babelian efforts to build ever-higher towers to heaven and instead turn out attention to creating a new kind of civilization--one designed for beauty rather than height. Breathtaking in its scope and intelligence, The Ascent of Humanity is a landmark book showing what it truly means to be human. "A tour-de-force filled with astounding insight, wit, wisdom and heart." --Christopher Uhl, author of Developing Ecological Consciousness: Paths to a Sustainable Future "Quite marvelous, a hugely important work. This book is truly needed in this time of deepening crisis." --John Zerzan, author of Future Primitive and Elements of Refusal
