📒An Altar In The World ✍ Barbara Brown Taylor
📝An Altar in the World Book Synopsis : In this highly acclaimed and lyrical modern classic, bestselling author Barbara Brown Taylor reveals the countless ways we can discover divine depths in the small things we do and see every day. While people will often go to extraordinary lengths in search of a 'spiritual experience', she shows that the stuff of our everyday lives is a holy ground where we can encounter God at every turn. For her, as for Jacob in the Genesis story, even barren, empty deserts can become "the house of God and the gate of heaven", places where a ladder of angels connects heaven to earth and earth to heaven. An Altar in the World reveals concrete ways to discover the sacred in such ordinary occurrences as hanging out the washing, doing the supermarket shop, feeding an animal, or losing our way. It will transform our understanding of ourselves and the world we live in, and renew our sense of wonder at the extraordinary gift of life.
📒Lord Make Me Into An Altar ✍ David Robinson, Jr.
📝Lord Make Me Into an Altar Book Synopsis : This book is a series of thoughts the Holy Spirit inspired the author to write while serving in Iraq. These spiritually uplifting thoughts bring us closer to becoming an altar for God. This book reminds us of the importance of being stable while living a spiritually consistent life. Being an altar for God enables us to communicate the holiness of God to a generation in need. It makes us more than people who attend church; it makes us people who bring church to our neighborhoods, jobs, and homes. We are answers to the prayers of generations before us. Now it's our time to be vessels God can use to reach and draw people to Himself. David Robinson Jr. is a family man who is in love with God and simply wants to please Him. David has a unique ability to hear the voice of God, compassionately ministering to the poor and those whom society has rejected. He and his family get great joy from providing needed supplies to the less fortunate. While serving in the military, David stood his watch not only physically but spiritually as well. He ministered the Word of God onboard US Navy ships at sea and on land while deployed in Iraq. His teaching has directly impacted thousands of souls as he has built bridges and crossed cultural boundaries, empowering sailors, soldiers, airmen, marines, and civilians with hope and trust in our Lord Jesus.
📒An Altar In The Wilderness ✍ Kaleeg Hainsworth
📝An Altar in the Wilderness Book Synopsis : Provocative, passionate and populist, RMB Manifestos are short and concise non-fiction books of literary, critical, and cultural studies. Father Kaleeg Hainsworth, an Eastern Orthodox priest with a lifetime of experience in the Canadian wilderness, grounds this manifesto in the literary, philosophical, mystical and historical teachings of the spiritual masters of both East and West, outlining the human experience of the sacred in nature. The spiritual ecology described here is fully engaged with the wilderness beyond our backyards; it is an ecology which takes in nature as “red in tooth and claw” and offers a way forward in the face of accelerating climate change. This manifesto also challenges our modern self-conception as dominators or stewards of the natural world, claiming these roles emerged from western industrial history and are directly responsible for the environmental damage and alienation from nature we know today. The ecological scope of this book begins with a meditation on natural beauty as the divine that breathes through all aspects of life. We discover along the way that awe and mystery are so vital to the human experience of the natural world that without them we are doomed to treat nature as little more than a resource, a science or a playground for recreation alone. Instead, a new role emerges from these pages, one which accounts for the sacred in nature and places us in relationship to the world of which we are inextricably a part. This role is a priestly one, and Father Hainsworth outlines the significance and benefits of it in detail while also offering a vision of life in which a human being stands in the world of nature as at an altar built in the wilderness, a sacred offering in a holy place.

Merrily is called in when two people are killed in a head-on crash that is also linked to the revamped local pub which, it seems, has injected the valley with a shattering, strobing surge of inner-city nightlife... and drugs. When a dealer is found savagely murdered below the great earthen hillfort of Herefordshire Beacon, police ask: is it a ritual killing, a gangland disposal or a cry of outrage? As Merrily and the police follow separate paths towards the truth, Merrily's teenage daughter, Jane, faces the consequences of her own obsession with a possibly prehistoric site in their home village of Ledwardine. Until, on a night of frenzied violence, in a place at the centre of an ancient, universal mystery, the final, shocking connections are made.
