📒The Naked Now ✍ Richard Rohr
📝The Naked Now Book Synopsis : Drawn from the Gospels, Jesus, Paul, and the great Christian contemplatives, this examination reveals how many of the hidden truths of Christianity have been misunderstood or lost and how to read them with the eyes of the mystics rather than interpreting them through rational thought.
📒Panorama ✍ H. G. Adler
📝Panorama Book Synopsis : Only recently available for the first time in English, Panorama is the newly rediscovered first novel of H. G. Adler, a modernist master whose work has been compared to that of Kafka, Joyce, and Solzhenitsyn. A brilliant epic told in ten distinct vignettes, Panorama is a portrait of a place and people soon to be destroyed, as seen through the eyes of the young Josef Kramer. It moves from the pastoral World War I–era Bohemia of Josef’s youth, to a German boarding school full of creeping prejudice, through an infamous extermination camp, and finally to Josef’s self-imposed exile abroad, achieving veracity and power through a stream-of-consciousness style reminiscent of our greatest modern masters. The author of six novels as well as the monumental account of his experiences in a Nazi labor camp, Theresienstadt 1941–1945, H. G. Adler is an essential author with unique historical importance. Panorama is lasting evidence of both the torment of his life and the triumph of his gifts.

📒The Naked Self ✍ Patrick Stokes

📒Facets Of Eros ✍ F.J. Smith
📝Facets of Eros Book Synopsis : In an age which is supposedly experiencing a sexual revolution, a volume of thoughtful essays on eros is not only not out of place but perhaps is a positive contribution to the understanding of contempor ary man. It was the conviction of the editors that the scientific view of sexuality, as promoted in such valuable studies as those conducted by Masters and Johnson, needed considerable supplement and per spective. The perspective is here furnished by writers from both Europe and America, authors from various fields, such as philosophy, psychology, and even musicology, all of whom are united, in that their approach to the problem of eros is phenomenologically oriented. At first it might well seem strange that musicology would have much to say about eros. It is true, musicology has been the "science" of music, at least in intent. Yet in a larger view of the discipline, philo sophical and aesthetic problems are also important to it, and this particularly if we agree with Enzo Paci, that our very culture depends on eros. Surely musical culture, as pointed out by Kierkegaard, is the embodiment of what western civilization has known as sensuality; and Mozart's Don Giovanni is its incarnation. On the surface it is easier for us to grasp the work of the philosopher in this area; and, of course, one expects the psychologist to deal with sexuality more explicitly than anyone else.
📒Falling Upward ✍ Richard Rohr
📝Falling Upward Book Synopsis : A fresh way of thinking about spirituality that grows throughout life In Falling Upward, Fr. Richard Rohr seeks to help readers understand the tasks of the two halves of life and to show them that those who have fallen, failed, or "gone down" are the only ones who understand "up." Most of us tend to think of the second half of life as largely about getting old, dealing with health issues, and letting go of life, but the whole thesis of this book is exactly the opposite. What looks like falling down can largely be experienced as "falling upward." In fact, it is not a loss but somehow actually a gain, as we have all seen with elders who have come to their fullness. Explains why the second half of life can and should be full of spiritual richness Offers a new view of how spiritual growth happens?loss is gain Richard. Rohr is a regular contributing writer for Sojourners and Tikkun magazines This important book explores the counterintuitive message that we grow spiritually much more by doing wrong than by doing right.

📒The Naked Mind ✍ Geoffrey Mann
📝The Naked Mind Book Synopsis : The year is 2018. Laura, a prototype-robot has been listed for termination. After accidentally sharing her creator's brain and experiencing the `rich sensory feasts' of human `aliveness,' Laura recognizes her absolute need to survive and explore the biological world through a human brain. Michael, orphaned, his face grossly scarred, is overcome when she, recognizing his deepest need, cleverly says that she loves him. Labeled and hunted as the world's most wanted terrorist, she narrowly escapes capture with all her accumulated knowledge after Michael is tortured into revealing her location. Accessing the suppressed technology of Nikola Tesla, she harnesses the planet's power and designs her own `qubit' quantum computer brain, the first of its kind. Now as `pure' energy she can explore consciousness itself in search of the human `GOD' concept. Using Earth's satellites, she reveals to humans exactly how they have been duped, manipulated, and for centuries, deliberately deprived of their birthright: that Earth ended with the Mayan Calendar on December 21, 2012, that humans now live in a dream within a dream, and how they can reclaim the awesome, forgotten powers they have always had. In doing so, she demonstrates the technology of healing, the science of miracles, and the process of transfiguration. Many awaken. Manifestation begins. Laura creates twelve children, all triplets. All are genetically engineered to write a final chapter in earth's living history, but what happens next is unbelievable even to Laura.
