In this systematic philosophical critique of the major tenets of Christianity, Michael Martin examines the semantic and epistemological bases of religious claims and beliefs. Beginning with a comparison and evaluation of the Apostles' Creed, the Niceno-Chalcedonian Creed, and the Athanasian Creed, Martin discusses the principal theological, historical, and eschatological assumptions of Christianity. These include the historicity of Jesus, the Incarnation, the Second Coming, the Virgin Birth, the Resurrection, Salvation through faith in Jesus, and Jesus as a model of ethical behavior. Until now, an adequately convincing criticism of Christianity did not exist. Martin's use of historical evidence, textual analysis, and interpretations by philosophers and theologians provides the strongest case made to date against the rational justification of Christian doctrines.

Understand the life and teachings of Osho, one of the twentieth century’s most unusual gurus and philosophers, in Autobiography of a Spiritually Incorrect Mystic. In 1990, Osho prepared for his departure from the body that had served him for fifty-nine years—in the words of his attending physician—“as calmly as though he were packing for a weekend in the country.” Who was this man, known as the Sex Guru, the “self-appointed bhagwan” (Rajneesh), the Rolls-Royce Guru, the Rich Man’s Guru, and simply the Master? Drawn from nearly five thousand hours of Osho’s recorded talks, this is the story of his youth and education, his life as a professor of philosophy and years of travel teaching the importance of meditation, and the true legacy he sought to leave behind: a religion-less religion centered on individual awareness and responsibility and the teaching of “Zorba the Buddha,” a celebration of the whole human being. Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

From Mormon to Mystic: Journey from Religious Disillusionment to Soulful Liberation chronicles the journey of a sixth-generation Mormon woman. She travels a path that takes her from a tightly knit and theologically strict religious community to the open expanses of a mystical understanding of reality. Erin Jensen weaves together the account of her transformation and the strands of insight that come from James Fowler’s Stages of Faith. By rooting her narrative in the vivid details of the steps she takes along the way, the author tells how she weathers her life’s challenges, including a federal court “witch” trial, and emerges from the depths of several “dark nights of the soul.” While From Mormon to Mystic immerses itself in the details of one life, it simultaneously offers guidance for anyone seeking to overcome the strictures of rigid systems of belief and behavior. In its pages, the reader will learn how to make his or her way toward freedom and wholeness by understanding how faith develops, learning to work with shadow qualities, practicing non-attachment, taking personal responsibility, trusting one’s ability to choose, appreciating the power of total forgiveness, connecting to inner sources of wisdom, and embracing a state of consciousness filled with hope, love, and peace. From Mormon to Mystic: Journey from Religious Disillusionment to Soulful Liberation offers both a narrative of one woman’s path to spiritual freedom and a guide for others who seek their own way from the confines of their current circumstances to the liberation they desire to envision for the own futures.
