      What Is God?

      Rolling Back the Veil

      by Horner, Christine

      Thousands of years into human history, though we’ve advanced technologically as a species, very little has been resolved in regard to humanity’s existential dilemmas . . . UNTIL NOW. Something miraculous is happening. The invisible is becoming visible. Human consciousness is taking a quantum leap into territory previously unknown. In this provocative book, you are asked to let go of your culture and conditioning. To understand our external world, it is time to inquire within and explore the mystery anew. WHAT IS GOD?

      Rationalization in Religions

      Judaism, Christianity and Islam

      by Yohanan Friedmann, Christoph Markschies

      Current tendencies in religious studies and theology show a growing interest for the interchange between religions and the cultures of rationalization surrounding them. The studies published in this volume, based on the international conferences of both the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften and the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities, aim to contribute to this field of interest by dealing with concepts and influences of rationalization in Judaism, Christianity, Islam and religion in general. In addition to taking a closer look at the immediate links in the history of tradition between those rationalizing movements and evolutions in religion, emphasis is put on intellectual-historical convergences: Therefore, the articles are led by central comparative questions, such as what factors foster/hinder rationalization?; where are criteria for rationalization drawn from?; in which institutions is rationalization taking place?; who propagates, supports and utilizes rationalization?

      Religion und Gesellschaft

      Sinnstiftungssysteme im Konflikt

      by Friedrich Wilhelm Graf, Jens-Uwe Hartmann

      Religion ist auf die Agenda moderner Gesellschaften zurückgekehrt. Vor allem außerhalb Europas entfalten religiöse Akteure verstärkt große Mobilisierungskraft, erzeugen mit ihren Sinnangeboten aber auch neue Konflikte. Religion kann zur Integration von Gesellschaften beitragen, aber auch Polarisierungstendenzen verstärkender jeweils Anderen, Fremden begründen. Die Schattenseiten religiösen Bewusstseins werden ebenso erkundet wie neue charismatische Christentümer sowie die Faszinationskraft alternativer Sinnstiftungsangebote bis hin zur Esoterik.

      Across Great Divides

      by Monique Roy

      Across Great Divides is a timeless story of the upheavals of war, the power of family, and the resiliency of human spirit. When Hitler came to power in 1933, one Jewish family refused to be destroyed and defied the Nazis only to come up against another struggle—confronting apartheid in South Africa. The novel chronicles the story of Eva and Inge, two identical twin sisters growing up in Nazi Germany. As Jews, life becomes increasingly difficult for them and their family under the Nazi regime. After witnessing the horrors of Kristallnacht, they realize they must leave their beloved homeland if they hope to survive. They travel to Antwerp, Belgium, and then on to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, chasing the diamond trade in hopes of finding work for their father, a diamond merchant. Finally, they find a home in beautiful South Africa and begin to settle down. But just as things begin to feel safe, their new home becomes caught up in it’s own battles of bigotry and hate under the National Party’s demand for an apartheid South Africa. Eva and Inge wonder if they will ever be allowed to live in peace, though they cling to the hope for a better day when there will be “an understanding of the past, compassion for all humanity, and …hope and courage to move forward across great divides.” Worldwide rights are available for this novel. I would like to sell Across Great Divides in Europe, Africa and Asia. The readership for Across Great Divides are history buffs, both female and male, and all ages, from late teens through adult.

      Shadow of the Piper

      by L. P. Hoffman

      The Pied Piper still plays his tune, and in his shadow, many fall. When a disturbed teenager arrives at the Pittsburgh Rescue Mission, Cali turns things upside down by claiming to know “secrets” about a young evangelist’s shadowy past. The deranged girl lures Jesse Berry across the country only to slip away after they reach their destination. Hamlin, Montana, is not the quaint mining town it appears to be. Something sinister moves below the surface—the youth are at risk—and someone there wants Jesse dead. A few years back I was doing a book signing at a local book store. It was that day that I learned about a horrific quadruple murder that shocked my community. As the details emerged about the murderer’s involvement in the occult, I was reminded that these activities are perpetuated by a culture of secrets. It is my heart’s desire to reach those lured into this lifestyle. Why? Because I was once one of them and I know the collateral damage it can cause. Shadow of the Piper won Gold in Foreward Reviews 2013 IndieFab Book of the Year Awards for Adult Fiction-Religious and was named a Finalist in the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Contest for two categories—General Fiction/Novel (under 80,000 words) and Second Novel.

      Church, nation and race

      Catholics and antisemitism in Germany and England, 1918–45

      by Ulrike Ehret

      Church, nation and race compares the worldviews and factors that promoted or, indeed, opposed antisemitism amongst Catholics in Germany and England after the First World War. As a prequel to books on Hitler, fascism and genocide, the book turns towards ideas and attitudes that preceded and shaped the ideologies of the 1920s and 1940s. Apart from the long tradition of Catholic anti-Jewish prejudices, the book discusses new and old alternatives to European modernity offered by Catholics in Germany and England. This book is a political history of ideas that introduces Catholic views of modern society, race, nation and the 'Jewish question'. It shows to what extent these views were able to inform political and social activity. Church, nation and race will interest academics and students of antisemitism, European history, German and British history.

      Jesus and the Time Traveller

      by Chris Lambert

      Meet Stephen Mills Fundamentalist Christian Time Traveller Idiot When things go horribly wrong with his mission to meet Jesus, the phrase “What would Jesus do?” takes on a whole new and horrific meaning for Stephen Mills. Fast moving, funny, tragic, blasphemous, offensive, heretical and probably evil; this new novel asks questions about the nature of religion, ponders the stupidity of religious fundamentalism whilst attempting, in its own unassuming way, to kick seven shades of shit out of religious dogma. Never give a Christian a time machine... Chris Lambert is a teacher of drama, a playwright and a former fundamentalist Christian. Please don't kill him.
