A provocative look at the purpose of life through a mixture of religion, science and personal experience! The Universe Within Us is a mixture of science, religion, and personal experience that offers a new, more truthful understanding of our place and purpose in the universe, and to the inevitable conclusion that every human being possess a spiritual nature. Offering insight into every thinking persons look at life, the author argues that the answers to the purpose of life have long been the domain of priests and clergy, and, more recently, scientists. The religious answers often leave the intellect out and defy what the rational mind can accept. The scientific answers satisfy the intellect at the expense of the heart and soul. Drawing on all resources available: from the sciences, from the world's sacred scriptures, and from personal observations and experiences, Harper offers a unique map of the universe, and an explanation of life's purpose that is truly satisfying.

The Bible - and particularly the Old Testament - is often called the world's least-read bestseller. Now, in a masterly work, John Dancy restores the Hebrew Scriptures to the reading list of the general educated public. People are often put off by the sheer bulk of the material and its uneven quality. Dancy has selected just under a third of the text of the canonical and apocryphal books, chosen for artistic merit and intrinsic interest rather than theological value. Literature of this stature should not be restricted to academics and believers. To help the reader, the text is presented in highlighted boxes, with commentary on the same page in double-column layout so that attention need never be diverted from the original. The commentary concentrates on literary matters but provides technical explanations where needed. A sensitive introduction places the Hebrew writings in the historical context of the ancient Near East.

Let's face it, if you don't find these pictures funny on first sight, no amount of forewords will persuade you otherwise." --- from the Foreword by Eric Idle Look at those cows and remember that the greatest scientists have never discovered how to turn grass into milk." --Michael Pupin * Never has the divine bovine aspired to such a laudable art form. In one of the most imaginative books you'll pick up this year, digital slight-of-hand artist Glen Wexler creates a vibrant counterculture that merges fantasy and reality. * Recipient of the International Photography Association's Gold Medal and Best of Show Awards, Wexler's digitally enhanced photo-illustrations are paired with udderly funny musings from the likes of Dave Barry, Ogden Nash, and Eric Idle, who authors the book's foreword and happens to "know a bit about cows in comedy." * Wexler put more than 600 creative hours into this book, working with Muppet wardrobe designer James Hayes and pyrotechnic extraordinaire Joe Viskocil. No detail or pixel has been overlooked in the creation of this "mooving" photographic expose.

Siberian shamans say that the sound of their frame drum is the horse that carries them into the beyond. Some music can indeed to this for us. How is this possible? 'Music as a Mystical Journey' explores this theme. The book is about spiritual transformation and our search for happiness and harmony. A mystical journey is a search that follows an inner call. The word mystical refers to a quest common to all religions and yet does not belong to any one exclusively. All mystical traditions like the Sufis, North American Indians or shamanic cultures, went beyond religion into an open space of fraternity and communion with nature and the divine. Today music is present all around us, and we have all been deeply moved by it at some point in our life. Few people realise how this feeling experience can lead them more permanently into silence, joy and freedom. This book explores a.o. the energy of the Black Virgine or virgin blackness in music.
