The World’s Religions, by beloved author and pioneering professor Huston Smith (Tales of Wonder), is the definitive classic for introducing the essential elements and teachings of the world's predominant faiths, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, as well as regional native traditions. This revised and updated edition provides sympathetic descriptions of the various traditions, explaining how they work “from the inside,” which is a big reason why this cherished classic has sold more than two million copies since it first appeared in 1958.

The ancient seers of India realized the highest non-dual Truth and thus attained to unity in the religious field; they succeeded in bringing religion to the rank of a perfect and complete science. The methods adopted by them to come to this result were the same as those followed by all the sciences of the present day. This book discusses how the philosophers of India applied these rational methods in coming to their respective discoveries, thus establishing the scientific character of Indian philosophy and religion. The book chiefly makes a comparative study of Samkhya, Vedanta and other systems of thought. Published by Advaita Ashrama, a publication house of Ramakrishna Math, Belur Math, India.

This book is about the Nostradamus king of terror prophecy. It is a book unlike any other written about his works. It sets out to prove this prophecy is still unfolding. The idea came from years the author spent surfing the worldwide web for some kind of truth out of all the words, pages upon pages of Christian theology. It breathes and lives Gods spoken word, uncovering Satans lies and man-made religion. It is a book for the purest or to make the reader consider the question, who is the king of terror.

The People's Republic of China has emerged as a significant regional superpower. At best, China will be an economic challenge to the United States; at worst, the PRC will be a very real national security threat. Dillon persuasively argues that a Cold War mentality cannot work against China. The U.S. must instead craft an ambitious new geostrategic plan.
