How do Christians account for the widespread presence of goodness in a fallen world? Richard Mouw, one of the most influential evangelical voices in America, presents his mature thought on the topic of common grace. Addressing a range of issues relevant to engaging common grace in the 21st century, Mouw shows how God takes delight in all things that glorify him--even those that happen beyond the boundaries of the church--and defends the doctrine of common grace from its detractors.

Geeta shares her astonishing journey through consciousness after the powerful grace of Divinity healed her body, mind and spirit. Geeta experienced a divine healing, crossing over into the spiritual realm while being guided by her spiritual Guru, Sai Baba. Geeta believed it was time to leave her body, but ultimately her spirit rejoined its earthly habitation after receiving and experiencing her life's message with a vision and a soul purpose. At twenty-seven, doctors told Geeta Arora that her sudden multiple autoimmune disorders and Hodgkin's Disease with Lymphoma meant she had only a matter of two to six months to live. Refusing chemotherapy and other conventional treatments, Geeta turned to Ayurvedic medicine as her last hope. Immediately after she received Ayurvedic therapies, in only three weeks of hot oil massages, steam, herbal remedies, and a nourishing diet of wholesome foods chosen to help her body restore its immune system, Geeta found that she was free from disease with an ability to heal. By sharing her personal experiences in Divine Delight, Geeta opens readers' eyes to the illusions that separate humanity from the essence of who we are by conversations about the missing pieces between mind, body, heart and the higher self with Ayurveda and Yoga.

The Reading Augustine series presents short, engaging books offering personal readings of St. Augustine of Hippo's contributions to western philosophical, literary, and religious life. Mark Clavier's On Consumer Culture, Identity, The Church and the Rhetorics of Delight draws on Augustine of Hippo to provide a theological explanation for the success of marketing and consumer culture. Augustine's thought, rooted in rhetorical theory, presents a brilliant understanding of the experiences of damnation and salvation that takes seriously the often hidden psychology of human motivation. Clavier examines how Augustine's keen insight into the power of delight over personal notions of freedom and self-identity can be used to shed light on how the constant lure of promised happiness shapes our identities as consumers. From Augustine's perspective, it is only by addressing the sources of delight within consumerism and by rediscovering the wellsprings of God's delight that we can effectively challenge consumer culture. To an age awash with commercial rhetoric, the fifth-century Bishop of Hippo offers a theological rhetoric that is surprisingly contemporary and insightful.
