The Kabbalah has never been taught through the body - until now. We are hungry for a deeper meaning in life, thirsty for Higher wisdom and ready to step into our fullest potential. But how? Our lives can feel fragmented, not-quite-what-we'd-hoped-for and many of us are carrying a deeper sense of frustration. In The Kabbalah Sutras, Marcus J Freed presents a system which infuses ancient Kabbalistic wisdom with modern physical meditation in a way that you can apply directly to your everyday life - at home, play and at work. Using the ancient wisdom we can dissolve obstacles and create the life we love. This book contains 49 practical lessons that can be applied through meditation, yoga, physical gym workouts and throughout the entire day.

At the very heart of Islam lies the spiritual way of Sufism. Far removed from the negative portrayal of Islam in the headlines, Sufism is rooted in the harmonious qualities of peace, love, beauty, and wisdom. Its primary focus is to return human beings to unity with God. This select treasury of Sufi wisdom includes nearly 400 short sayings from as many as 100 of the greatest Sufi saints and sages in history, covering a vast span of 1,400 years. It includes notable sayings from well-known figures such as Rabiah, al-Hallaj, Junayd, al-Ghazali, Ibn al-Farid, Ibn Arabi, Rumi, and Ahmad al-Alawi. Also featured are over 150 verses from the Koran and the Hadith (Prophetic sayings), which form the foundational sources of this esoteric form of Islam. Whether expressing itself in pithy paradoxical aphorisms, extended intellectual instruction, or rapturous mystical poetry, this compendium of Sufi wisdom will illuminate the spiritual traveler’s way of return to God.
"Be quick to listen, slow to speak." -James 1:19 How would our lives change if we approached every experience with the intention of listening first? In this noisy, distracting world, it is difficult to truly hear. People talk past each other, eager to be heard but somehow deaf to what is being said. Listening is an essential skill for healthy relationships, both with God and with other people. But it is more than that: listening is a way of life. Adam McHugh places listening at the heart of our spirituality, our relationships and our mission in the world. God himself is the God who hears, and we too can learn to hear what God may be saying through creation, through Scripture, through people. By cultivating a posture of listening, we become more attentive and engaged with those around us. Listening shapes us and equips us to be more attuned to people in pain and more able to minister to those in distress. Our lives are qualitatively different-indeed, better-when we become listeners. Heed the call to the listening life, and hear what God is doing in you and the world.
Getting to Know Jesus is a perfect book for someone who knows something but wants to know a lot more about the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. Eric Kampmann has designed the book to provide the chronological account of the life of Christ based on the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
The origins of this book were a series of podcasts that Kampmann and Dr. Chuck Davis, Senior Pastor at Stanwich church, recorded over the course of one year. For this book, Kampmann used the content of the podcasts to build a commentary on the passage that provides a deeper look into the accounts of Jesus’ life, ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection.
In addition to the book, Kampmann has provided an index that lists 31 bible or individual studies. The studies include an in depth look at the Sermon on the Mount, the Parable of the Prodigal Son, Raising Lazarus, the Seven Words of the Cross, the High Priestly Prayer, and much more.
Fighting God is a firebrand manifesto from one of the most recognizable faces of atheism. In his book, Silverman-a walking, talking atheist billboard known for his appearances on Fox News-discusses the effectiveness, ethics and impact of the in-your-face-atheist who refuses to be silent.
Silverman argues that religion is more than just wrong: it is malevolent and does not deserve our respect. It is our duty to be outspoken and do what we can to bring religion down. Examining the mentality, methods and issues facing the firebrand atheist, Silverman presents an overwhelming argument for firebrand atheism and reveals:
All religion is cafeteria religion and almost all agnostics are atheists.
American society grants religion a privileged status, despite the intentions of the Founding Fathers.
Christian politicians have adversely (and un-Constitutionally) affected our society with regard to science, health, women's rights, and gay rights.
The notion of "atheist Jews" is a lie forced on us by religion.
It is not "Islamophobia" to observe dangerous teachings and disproportionate violence in Islam.
Atheists are slowly but surely winning the battle.
Fighting God is a provocative, unapologetic book that takes religion to task and will give inspiration to non-believers and serve as the ultimate answer to apologists.
