Thomas Moore is the renowned author of Care of the Soul, the classic #1 New York Times bestseller. In Ageless Soul, Moore reveals a fresh, optimistic, and rewarding path toward aging, one that need not be feared, but rather embraced and cherished. In Moore’s view, aging is the process by which one becomes a more distinctive, complex, fulfilled, loving, and connected person. Using examples from his practice as a psychotherapist and teacher who lectures widely on the soul of medicine and spirituality, Moore argues for a new vision of aging: as a dramatic series of initiations, rather than a diminishing experience, one that each of us has the tools—experience, maturity, fulfillment—to live out. Subjects include: *Why melancholy is a natural part of aging, and how to accept it, rather than confuse it with depression *The vital role of the elder and mentor in the lives of younger people *The many paths of spiritual growth and learning that open later in life *Sex and sensuality *Building new communities and leaving a legacy Ageless Soul will teach readers how to embrace the richness of experience and how to take life on, accept invitations to new vitality, and feel fulfilled as they get older.

The Foundations of Mormon Thought: Cosmos, God, Humanity
Author: Terryl L. Givens
Pubpsher: Oxford University Press
In this first volume of his magisterial study of the foundations of Mormon thought and practice, Terryl L. Givens offers a sweeping account of Mormon belief from its founding to the present day. Situating the relatively new movement in the context of the Christian tradition, he reveals that Mormonism continues to change and grow. Givens shows that despite Mormonism's origins in a biblical culture strongly influenced by nineteenth-century Restorationist thought, which advocated a return to the Christianity of the early Church, the new movement diverges radically from the Christianity of the creeds. Mormonism proposes its own cosmology and metaphysics, in which human identity is rooted in a premortal world as eternal as God. Mormons view mortal life as an enlightening ascent rather than a catastrophic fall, and reject traditional Christian concepts of human depravity and destiny. Popular fascination with Mormonism's social innovations, such as polygamy and communalism, and its supernatural and esoteric elements-angels, gold plates, seer stones, a New World Garden of Eden, and sacred undergarments-have long overshadowed the fact that it is the most enduring and even thriving product of the nineteenth century's religious upheavals and innovations. Wrestling the Angel traces the essential contours of Mormon thought from the time of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young to the contemporary LDS church, illuminating both the seminal influence of the founding generation of Mormon thinkers and the significant developments in the church over almost 200 years. The most comprehensive account of the development of Mormon thought ever written, Wrestling the Angel will be essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the Mormon faith.

Why Islam will Conquer the Free World. What Americans Need to Know.
Author: Markus Aurelius
Over 4 years in the making, “Bleeding for Allah” scrutinizes Islam from the very birth of the religion. The Koran, the Holy Book of more than one billion people worldwide, is systematically analyzed to reflect the true nature of its message. “Bleeding for Allah” goes the full distance in detailing the uncomfortable and painful truth of that message. Although touted as a peaceful religion and Islamic terrorists dismissed as misguided fanatics, it is clear that the very words of Allah, as voiced through the Archangel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad, are anything but peaceful. Markus Aurelius, in concise and clear fashion, gives countless examples of Koranic verse that readily demonstrates its militancy and violence. The author speaks to cultural bias and is quite sensitive to its influence on interpretation. But the author finds it extremely difficult to dismiss countless holy verse such as: “Believers, take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends.” (Koran, 5:51) or: “Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and deal sternly with them.” (Koran, 66:9). To further try to eliminate cultural bias, the book includes a comparative analysis of specific words between the New Testament and the Koran. For example, the words “punishment” and “torture” appear 600% more in the Koran while the word “love” appears 500% less. The author carefully examines the Prophet Muhammad’s life and outlines the gruesome details of his explosive success in the 7th century. The shrewd Prophet creatively found divine support from Allah for his banditry and mass murder. Sadly, more than one billion people believe those words today. Americans are woefully in the dark regarding the Koran. But few Americans have taken the time to read the Koran itself. Markus Aurelius challenges the American public to do just that. “Bleeding for Allah” is the perfect primer.
A woman in her prime, fully aware of her sensuality, not afraid to stare life in the eye and embrace it openheartedly, thrown in the arms of lust and love, pleasure and delirium, courage and devotion, sadness and heartbreak and through it all, remaining fragile and vulnerable, delicate and relatable. This is the woman that tells her stories through the verses and poems in "The Year of The Rabbit." The sentiment that one should always follow their heart and surrender themselves to life as it comes to them; the sentiment of pure unconditional love, exactly as it originates and derives naturally from all human instinct and how it evolves and transforms to survive and live on; is the invisible thread that runs through this collection of poems and the spiritual glue that holds them together. Kozi Nasi holds on to her subject and brings you along in all the waves of the emotions that she goes through as well, thus giving you a front row seat into the tumultuous rollercoaster that is her love. Wittily, daringly and in a provocative way, Kozi undresses her feelings of all censure barriers, wraps them in a bow of passion and serves them to you on a luxurious plate full of her most intimate experiences and stories, thus seductively, inviting you to relive them alongside her, as your very own.
