At a time when many despair of culture, Elshtain recovers the life-affirming essence of what it means to be human. Respected Christian ethicist Jean Bethke Elshtain finds in the tensions and tragedies of our turn-of-the-century society hope in the recovery of personhood. She explores the internal and external trappings that so easily lead us to forget how to be faithful to something other than ourselves. This is a work of political analysis, cultural criticism, and theological engagement. Elshtain suggests that much of what we rightly interpret as troubling presents fascinating interpretive occasions for Christians, who, of all people, are called to live in hope. She highlights in particular certain aspects of youth culture, taking up popular films like "Seven and "Titanic and tragedies like the shootings at Columbine High School. What she finds running through all of these are examples of courage and a search for a source of truth and meaning that seems to elude so many.

Theology can no longer exist in isolation from politics, philosophy and literature. This is Nicholas Boyle's basis for an examination of personal and cultural identity in today's world. His exploration of the global mind reveals the continuing importance of a Christian perspective in a secular world. He shows that modern trends towards greater diversity and pluralism and simultaneous trends towards greater unification can be reconciled within the Catholic humanist tradition of theology, philosophy and literature. He identifies Postmodernism as 'the pessimism of an obsolescent class - the salaried official intelligentsia - whose fate is closely bound up with that of the declining nation-state'. In this brilliant book, Dr Boyle gives new grounds for optimism about the emerging new world order>

In this book, among other sources, we have compiled key thoughts and material that were dictated to Alice Bailey (starting in the 1920s and continuing through the 1960s) from the Tibetan master Djwhal Khul. As you see in the references, she wrote eighteen books, which were published by Lucis Publishing Company, New York. Djwhal Khul shared this material from another dimension, giving us a new perspective. We highly recommend these books because Djwhal Khul is in a higher vibrational dimension, working and aiding us in an enlightened evolution. What we have added to this book is some of our thoughts about the energies to which Khul refers. We know very little about these energies, and this material presents a challenge to us in our evolutionary sojourn. Each of us must pursue our understanding and knowledge about these energies. This is our goal and our reason for writing this book. Good travels to you.

Our genome is littered with scraps of DNA, termed OC junkOCO DNAs, that serve no apparent purpose. Junk DNAs make up as much as 98.5% of our genome. Scientists believe that some junk DNAs came into existence millions of years ago, when viruses inserted their DNA into that of the human host. There is emerging evidence that suggests that these bits of microbial DNAs may alter our functional genes, impacting our body physiology and behavior. We have been invaded by OC body snatchersOCO and they are part of us! We could postulate that we are carrying a large number of DNAs that serve only the DNAs, and we are just a small part of the big picture! There is ample scientific evidence to suggest that, even today, free-living microbes are still manipulating our behaviour and our life at large. They are thriving on our wet skin, in our mouth, and in our intestinal and vaginal tracts. We are perhaps not quite what we think we are. This thought-provoking and inspiring book offers many answers, while at the same time raising many questions for future research.

"Why would you want to deny that you possibly could be a Spirit intransient, that you possibly could be more than your body, that you possibly could be more than what you have worked for all your life? And why would you want to deny that? Why would you not want to even consider it? Well, to deny that God lives within you is to deny that which is termed your ability for unlimited knowingness, your ability for unlimited love, your ability for unlimited power, your ability to manifest what was called in elder times the kingdom of heaven." - Ramtha
