Description : This introduction to Nichiren Buddhism explores the philosophical intricacies of life and reveals the wonder inherent in the phases of birth, aging, and death. Core concepts of Nichiren Buddhism, such as the 10 worlds and the nine consciousnesses, illustrate the profundity of human existence. This book provides Buddhists with the tools they need to fully appreciate the connectedness of all beings and to revolutionize their spiritual lives based on this insight. Also explored are how suffering can be transformed to contribute to personal fulfillment and the well-being of others and how modern scientific research accords with ancient Buddhist views. Ultimately, this is both a work of popular philosophy and a book of compelling, compassionate inspiration for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike that fosters a greater understanding of Nichiren Buddhism.

Description : A semi-autobiographical novel about a young, punk rock kid in Wutherington Beach, Southern California. With his punk rock friends, he steals marijuana plants from his neighbors' backyards, smokes them in the group's underground club house and shoplifts for munchies on a daily basis. However, on one summer afternoon, while trying to hide a large bag of marijuana in his apartment's garage, he discovers his dead father's revolutionary book collection. The things he reads in these books open his eyes wide to the nefarious history of the US government and the nefarious nature of its foreign and domestic policy. This awakening causes him to search for other like books, which further awaken him to the need for revolutionary change in his county. However, the more he learns, the more bewildered he becomes, and the more withdrawn he becomes from school and social life, until he is on the brink of total despair. What finally saves him are the books in his father's collection about Nichiren Buddhism.

Description : This book introduces readers to the Buddhist-based philosophy of education of Daisaku Ikeda. Ikeda's philosophy of education offers human revolution, value creation, and dialogue as counterweights to the violence lurking in today's classrooms. Where education becomes wisdom-based, it transforms learners into keen assessors of their inner lives and establishes a foundation for global citizenship.

What finally saves him are the books in his father's collection about religion and philosophy. One particular book, by a Japanese Buddhist philosopher named Ho Goku, entitled, "Unlocking the Mysteries of Birth and Death" gives him courage and faith that a change in his society and the world is possible, but only through an inner spiritual revolution of each individual.In the back of this book by Ho Goku, he finds a name and number of an old friend and colleague of his dead father. Though the number is wrong, he eventually locates this man on the internet and he adopts him as his spiritual teacher. The more he learns from his teacher, the more empowered he becomes. Though change is slow, he first realizes before he can change the world, he first has to change his own life and his own actions.

Description : While the notion that “happiness can found within oneself” has recently become popular, Buddhism has taught for thousands of years that every person is a Buddha, or enlightened being, and has the potential for true and lasting happiness. Through real-life examples, the authors explain how adopting this outlook has positive effects on one’s health, relationships, and career, and gives new insights into world environmental concerns, peace issues, and other major social problems.

Description : The Mega Pastor Theological * Political * Philosophical * Apologetically * Inspirational Dr. D.C. Stewart has written a book that is absolutely about Christian leaders being accountable in all things and that Christians conduct themself in godliness. The Mega Pastor is a shepherding pastor of Gods workmanship, who encounters and overcome the intrinsic of all agendas that the body of Christ Jesus is up against. The Mega Pastor is the one taking the lead in the fight of faith. It is fit for the Mega Pastor and leaders of the flock of God to detect and expel the enemies from within and to expose the enemy that is outside looking in. There are primarily three groups of people categorizing this book. The secular humanist, which are all types of people that causes negative affect against Christian believers. Hirelings are those who are in the position to protect and serve the body of Christian believers but are not chosen, therefore causing many to stumble at the word of God and in faith. The Mega Pastors are those called and chosen of God who keeps the faith, walk in truth and preserve the body of Christian believers.

Description : Bob Harrison was an ordinary guy who served twenty-four years in the US Air Force with his wife, Annie, by his side. When Bob retired from the armed forces, he and Annie decided to settle down and try to find the American dream in Wichita, Kansas. Things went well for a few years, and their two small antique businesses thrived. Then, on a warm summer day a stranger came out of nowhere, knocked on their door, and immediately transformed their lives into a clash of two worlds. The stranger’s name was blood cancer, full of chaos, evil, and the inhumane—versus love, compassion, hope, and faith. Through Bob, from his eyes as a loving caregiver, you’ll see the trauma, feel the pain, hear the laughter, and share in the love of two people that fought until the end. This is not an ordinary trail on a walk through cancer. It’s a chronological journey from the beginning to the end, with an unlikely twist. Bob’s hope and dream is that someone will learn from his experience and not have to relive this story. After all, it’s Annie’s story—Because of Annie.

Description : Unlocking the Bible is essentially a lay-person’s guide to biblical interpretation. Its thesis is that understanding the text requires a prior understanding of critical technique. With this in view, the book examines historical, literary and cultural issues which are essential for an appreciation of the Bible today, and suggests that a consideration of the authors’ primary aims is key to an accurate exegesis of the text. Unlocking the Bible, although intended for general consumption, should be of particular interest to evangelical Christians whose approach to the Bible can often be ad hoc or arbitrary.

Description : Since the days of conquistador Hernán Cortés, rumours have circulated about a lost city of immense wealth hidden deep in the Honduran interior. Indigenous tribes speak of ancestors who fled there to escape the Spanish invaders, and warn the legendary city is cursed: to enter it is a death sentence. They call it the Lost City of the Monkey God. In 1940, swashbuckling journalist Theodore Morde returned from the rainforest with hundreds of artefacts and an electrifying story of having found the City – but then committed suicide without revealing its location. Three quarters of a century later, bestselling author Doug Preston joined a team of scientists on a groundbreaking new quest. In 2012 he climbed aboard a single-engine plane carrying a highly advanced, classified technology that could map the terrain under the densest rainforest canopy. In an unexplored valley ringed by steep mountains, that flight revealed the unmistakable image of a sprawling metropolis, tantalizing evidence of not just an undiscovered city but a lost civilization. To confirm the discovery, Preston and the team battled torrential rains, quickmud, plagues of insects, jaguars, and deadly snakes. They emerged from the jungle with proof of the legend... and the curse. They had contracted a horrifying, incurable and sometimes lethal disease. Suspenseful and shocking, filled with history, adventure and dramatic twists of fortune, The Lost City of the Monkey God is the absolutely true, eyewitness account of one of the great discoveries of the twenty-first century.

Description : The Bible predicts the future, but scholars widely disagree on what the Bible says! How can the average person sort out fact from fiction? Daniel 12:10 boldly states that the wise will understand prophetic chronology in the last days. Have those days already begun? Retired hi-tech inventor and author Herbert R. Stollorz discovered that the dates of many key events predicted in the books of Daniel and Revelation fall between the years 2008 and 2018. Two of the keys that unlocked this mystery are the Hebrew Alphabet Number System and the Jewish feast and fast days. One of those fast days, Tammuz 17, commemorates the fall of Jerusalem prior to the destruction of God's Temple in that ancient city.

Description : The Handbook of Transformative Learning The leading resource for the field, this handbook provides a comprehensive and critical review of more than three decades of theory development, research, and practice in transformative learning. The starting place for understanding and fostering transformative learning, as well as diving deeper, the volume distinguishes transformative learning from other forms of learning, explores future perspectives, and is designed for scholars, students, and practitioners. PRAISE FOR THE HANDBOOK OF TRANSFORMATIVE LEARNING "This book will be of inestimable value to students and scholars of learning irrespective of whether or not their emphasis is on transformative learning. It should find its way to the reference bookshelves of every academic library focusing on education, teaching, learning, or the care professions." —PETER JARVIS, professor of continuing education, University of Surrey "Can there be a coherent theory of transformative learning? Perhaps. This handbook goes a long way to answering this question by offering a kaleidoscope of perspectives, including non-Western, that consider the meaning and practice of transformative learning." —SHAUNA BUTTERWICK, associate professor, University of British Columbia "This handbook will be valuable and accessible to both scholars and practitioners who are new to the study of adult education and transformative learning and to more seasoned scholars who seek a sophisticated analysis of the state of transformative learning thirty years after Mezirow first shared his version of a then-fledgling theory of adult learning." —JOVITA ROSS-GORDON, professor and program coordinator, MA in Adult Education, Texas State University

Description : What would you do when the only path to your destiny is the path you never wished for? Each destiny has a price that we must pay. The path of the cross is that which leads to the crown. Life triumphs over death. Death only brings out life. Death helps to reveal the power of life. The path which is common to all men is the path which leads to nowhere. God had determined the seasons long before time began. He had also determined their appointed times and duration. In the eternal order the unfavorable must come before the favorable, darkness must precede light and evil happens before good. The blessing cancels the curse and sin shall abound that grace may thereafter much more abound. The script is the eternal master plan. There is nothing that can ever be added to or taken away from the script. It is eternally perfect and complete in its design and concept. There must be a time when evil is allowed to hold sway but good holds the trump card of finality.

Description : How to unlock the secrets, enigmas, and mysteries of Ancient Egypt and other old civilizations I realized while I was researching Maat, the ancient goddess of justice, how hard it was for Egyptologists to understand most of the ancient Egyptian artifacts only with their conscious mind. Our modern mental structure bars us from entering and comprehending the logic of ancient peoples. The difference in understanding the world is why so many aspects of ancient cultures remain enigmatic and strange, even for the most intelligent modern scholars. The ancient people possessed a much better sense of the energies of life and nature than modern man does. These ancients explored the laws and properties of the intangible world and its action upon the material world. They gained valuable knowledge that has been preserved in their archeological remains as well as in their archaic legal systems. This type of knowledge was often rendered in symbolic dream-like language and images that modern scholars are not trained to understand. Moreover, even when this knowledge is rendered in remarkably clear language, how can one fully understand what one has never experienced? It is when we dream that we come closer to the mental universe of ancient peoples. While dreaming, modern man becomes like the ancients-aware and concerned about life-energy, a capacity modern man has now lost in his waking state. Through learning a unique technique to decipher their dreams, modern scholars would be enabled to understand more fully and perfectly how ancient people perceived the world around them differently. In this book, you will find an explanation of the technique I teach in my workshops, which is based on more than 20 years of personal research of ancient legal systems and the connections between dreams and reality. My approach is completely different from and much more practical than other techniques regarding dreams. This teaching would be of great help and benefit to all scholars and intelligent people who endeavor to advance our understanding of the ancient Egyptian civilization and of other ancient worlds.

Description : This volume, with more than twenty-four noted contributors, offers possible evidence of ancient immigrants, lost technologies, and places of power in ancient America long before the voyages of Christopher Columbus. While digging out basements near Los Angeles, homeowners unearth a 3,000-year-old Phoenician altar. A treasure-hunter in Ohio finds more than he expected when his metal detector locates an eastern Mediterranean pendant from 1000 BCE. Two caches of coins minted in Imperial Rome surface along the Ohio River. These are just a few of the examples that illustrate theories that there were foreign influences shaping the prehistory of the Americas.
