      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.

      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.

      You Like That, Don't You?

      by Kelvin Nel

      A DELICIOUSLY DARK COMEDY Acclaimed Fifty-year old Broadway and Hollywood writer, Gavin De Jong, has returned to his old English coastal hometown resort of Southend-on-Sea, under a cloud of suspicion and scandal. De Jong’s life has everything one would expect from a man of his position: drama, travel, sex, laughter, media interest – even a touch of intrigue. But this was his life almost thirty years ago. Before he even became famous. During 1984, apart the minor issue of being associated with five deaths, young cinema projectionist, Gavin De Jong – a football mad, soul, funk and film buff – experiences an otherwise average year in Southend. Roll up; roll up for this seaside extravaganza! Laugh along with De Jong and his bunch of hilarious and eccentric friends, known as The First Team, as they create and perform in perhaps the worst band of all time, unaware that the consequences of their uniquely shambolic concert, will prove to be a deadly one. Gasp as De Jong earnestly juggles the mundane daily routine of his working life around two contrasting love affairs, while the shadows of a psychotic boss and a mysterious killer, stalk his every move. Marvel at how De Jong still manages to find the time, in the middle of all the bodies, to enjoy a roller coaster lifestyle of parties, drinking and nightclubs. And happily follow De Jong’s odyssey through 156 momentous days, until his devastating and tragic secret is revealed, in a heart-rending climax. A romantic and savagely funny satire on British youth culture and the pre-political correctness era of the 1980s, YOU LIKE THAT DON’T YOU? is often a harsh, lewd and challenging tale, full of symbolic imagery. THIS WAS NOT WHAT GEORGE ORWELL HAD FORESEEN FOR 1984

      Entangled in Yugoslavia

      An Outsiders Memoir

      by Stephanie Allen-Early

      Entangled in Yugoslavia – an Outsider’s Memoir is a compelling personal memoir as well as a portrait of a collapsing society.

Caught up in the psychological turmoil, she finds release while participating in the international relief effort, working for Unicef to deliver supplies to war-torn areas. The author travelled extensively in all the republics of the former Yugoslavia - both before and during the civil war. Her account of events relies on the testimonies of people coming from different national and class groups.

      Human Responsibility in an Endangered World

      by Edited by Brian Treanor, Bruce Ellis Benson, and Norman Wirzba

      What is the proper relationship between human beings and the more-than-human world? This philosophical question, which underlies vast environmental crises, forces us to investigate the tension between our extraordinary powers, which seem to set us apart from nature, even above it, and our thoroughgoing ordinariness, as revealed by the evolutionary history we share with all life. The contributors to this volume ask us to consider whether the anxiety of unheimlichkeit, which in one form or another absorbed so much of twentieth-century philosophy, might reveal not our homelessness in the cosmos but a need for a fundamental belongingness and implacement in it.
