The Emergence of Reason from the Spirit of Mystery  Religion and mystery

This volume - the first in a new series on The Emergence of Reason from the Spirit of Mystery - addresses the question of the logic of religious awareness, specifically the logic of mystery, the purpose being to try to explain what makes a religion a testament of truth. In this sense, mystery forms the living core of religion. Through studying ancient Greek rationality, it is hoped that a greater understanding of modern European rationality will be reached.

Mystery Babylon  The Religion of the Beast

In the second book of the Original Revelation Series: Mystery Babylon – The Religion of the Beast, we are going to define how sun worship (that originated with the Sumerian Culture some 5,000 years ago) was organized later into a World Religion in Babylon. This religion evolved complete with a well defined Godhead, a day of worship, holy days, a Christ, and sacrifices. This religion, The Mystery Religion of Babylon, is the false religion identified in Scripture. It was this first world religion that was scattered among all nations and cultures at The Tower of Babel when Yahuah confused the languages. We can trace through time and cultures the progression of this religion as humanity flourished on Earth to the present day. Before we can identify what religion today is The Mystery Religion of Babylon, we must first clearly define this world religion as it existed in ancient Babylon. Only then can we compare the religions of today to find an exact match. Then we must compare this false religion to the “Faith” described in The Bible and identify The Truth. That is the purpose of my book series The Original Revelation. Throughout this book series, we carefully examine the evolution of history as man has built upon the corrupted version of the message written in the stars.

Yoga Consciousness in Ancient Mystery Religions

Drawing on the ancient teaching of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, this reference examines how to unravel the deeper meaning of traditional fairy tales to expose their relevance today. Focusing on 10 well-known fairy tales—each a coded message containing wisdom for life—this guidebook illuminates the mystic symbolism used and sheds new light on these classic tales of folklore. The underlying philosophy, culled from the writings of Thoth, upon which ancient Egyptian teaching was based, is also explored.

Mystery Unveiled

Paul C. H. Lim offers an insightful examination of the polemical debates about the doctrine of the Trinity in seventeenth-century England, showing that this philosophical and theological re-configuration significantly impacted the politics of religion in the early modern period. Through analysis of these heated polemics, Lim shows how Trinitarian God-Talk became untenable in many ecclesiastical and philosophical circles, which led to the emergence of Unitarianism. He also demonstrates that those who continued to embrace Trinitarian doctrine articulated their piety and theological perspectives in an increasingly secularized culture of discourse. Drawing on both unexplored manuscripts and well-known treatises of Continental and English provenance, he unearths the complex layers of the polemic: from biblical exegesis to reception history of patristic authorities, from popular religious radicalism during the Civil War to Puritan spirituality, from Continental Socinians to English anti-trinitarians who avowed their relative independent theological identity, from the notion of the Platonic captivity of primitive Christianity to that of Plato as "Moses Atticus." Among this book's surprising conclusions are the findings that Anti-Trinitarian sentiment arose from a Puritan ambience, in which Biblical literalism overcame rationalistic presuppositions, and that theology and philosophy were not as unconnected during this period as previously thought. Mystery Unveiled will fill a significant lacuna in early modern English intellectual history.

St  Paul and the Mystery Religions

"Ours is an age of new things. In no province is this more apparent than in that of New Testament interpretation. And no section of the New Testament continues to stimulate more revolutionary theories than the Pauline Epistles. It is true that discussions of authenticity have lost the importance assigned to them by scholars of the earlier time, like Baur, or by later critical investigators, like Van Manen. The emphasis has been shifted. The primary question at issue is the essential nature of St. Paul's view of the Christian faith." -- From Chapter One

Wandering Not Lost

Doubt is the companion of faith, and the mystery that bonds them together comes out in stories. These are stories of faith, doubt, and mystery. Not all who wander are lost.

Wandering  Not Lost

A spiritual journey may take many forms, from Dante's descent to the pits of Hell and up the other side to the bliss of Paradise, to Pilgrim's progress (or even to Billy Pilgrim, unstuck in time in Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five). It could be Elijah running headlong into the desert, or Jonah being flung ashore and shouting in Nineveh, a petulant prophet to the end. Faith can be carried like pennies in the pocket or worn like a coat of many colors. Abraham and Moses, Mary and Peter--all of them carried their faith, and all of them had their doubts. Doubt is the companion of faith, and the mystery that bonds them together comes out in stories. These are stories of faith, doubt, and mystery. Not all who wander are lost.

The Mystery of Being  Faith   reality

The Mystery of Being contains the most systematic exposition of the philosophical thought of Gabriel Marcel, a convert to Catholicism and the most distinguished twentieth-century exponent of Christian existentialism. Its two volumes are the Gifford lectures which Marcel delivered in Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1949 and 1950. Marcel's work fundamentally challenges most of the major positions of the atheistic existentialists (Sartre, Beauvoir, Camus), especially their belief in an absurd, meaningless, godless universe.These volumes deal with almost all of the major themes of Marcel's thought: the nature of philosophy, our broken world, man's deep ontological need for being, i.e., for permanent eternal values, our incarnate bodily existence, primary and secondary reflection, participation, being in situation, the identity of the human self, intersubjectivity, mystery and problem, faith, hope, and the reality of God, and immortality.

The Mystery of Faith

Using Scripture and contemporary theology, this book analyzes the phrase "the mystery of faith" found at the center of the Church's Eucharistic liturgy. Josef Jungmann concluded from his historical research that the Eucharistic symbol expressed the whole of faith for the early Church. Understood in this sense, it can still function today as what Karl Rahner calls a "short formula" or creed of the mystery of Christian faith.
