This relatively new culture of the adult faith-seeker originated in the closing decades of the twentieth century as developmental psychology highlighted the changing nature of growth and maturity at different life-stages. Accompanied by the information explosion, adult people particularly began to ask questions for which they sought adult answers. The co-dependency of earlier times, expecting adults to simply accept what religious authorities taught, is alien to adult religious maturity. Adult faith has arrived at a new threshold, requiring novel approaches and strategies in the religious development of adult people. Diarmuid O'Murchu charts this evolutionary development, highlighting dimensions of conventional religion which no longer inspire or offer hope, along with those that nurture and mature, and sheds new light on the spiritual horizons which contemporary adults seek to embrace. The result is a path-breaking book that empowers adult faith-seekers to confidently grow in wisdom and in grace, and that enables the church to use its resources to strengthen the faith of its people at a time of great change in how people think about religion.

Simple Tools for Clarity, Understanding and Betterment provides useful tools for those who are wanting or needing to engage with, and create desired, healthier, better, successful futures. In the early part of the book a number of tools are presented to break through and see beyond many accepted fixed beliefs that block the path to results, well-being and betterment. The latter part of the book provides tools for engaging the future, in quite literal, practical and useful terms. Examples are given of how the future 'feeds' into our present awareness, providing exceptionally insightful and useful information with which to create one's desired future. This book will appeal to entrepreneurs, sales and creative people who are visionary, creative, and results-orientated. Feedback says that many intelligent, discerning thinkers and high achievers have greatly enjoyed and gained value from my work and I encourage you to further enhance, or develop your ability to think more critically, achieve more, and more effectively “see around corners” with my eBook. [Stephen Pirie (21 October, 2013)] Early endorsements: "This book by Stephen Pirie is a masterpiece. It is a magnificent guide to help one think outside the box with the issues we experience in life. This book is small in size but big in ideas. It is a brilliant book full of intelligent humour for the thinking, open-minded person. Stephen demonstrates incisive observations of human behaviour and traditions and shows how in casting aside old myths one is guided to understand and overcome difficult or interesting times in one's life." Robert Colquhoun, Barrister and Philosopher (Sydney, Australia) "Stephen condenses a lifetime of research and experience into less than 50 pages – each part a tool that will result in immediate clarity regarding our beliefs, what we can do to both understand and change these beliefs and pre-emptively live the future. Recommended reading." Steven Lesser, Managing Director InfoWorks International Pty Ltd "Stephen Pirie’s is a playful nature, full of a mischievous verve that compliments his very considerable intelligence. What he has done in his Simple Tools for Clarity, Understanding and Betterment, is create a practical quantum handbook for those foundering in an outdated conception of what constitutes “reality”. Stephen’s presentation is lively, humorous, and conversational, free of mind-numbing disquisitions on quantum mechanics theory in the abstract. Most physicists chunder on about physics as an objectified body of knowledge that has no immediate relevance to the feelings and kinesthetics of getting on with life. Stephen simply grabs what is immediately useful and applies it to what is needed to get the job done. Simple Tools is exactly what it calls itself, a service manual for fixing broken belief systems. It is the right tool for a very specific job. Stephen’s book is a guide to action in the present, which promises to alter what that present means in a completely transfigurative and lasting way. It is a transformative work much needed during this increasingly compelling, ever-widening transition in human consciousness.

Frank Juszczyk, Ph.D [Emeritus Prof. English, Western New Mexico University] Endorsements for Stephen's earlier work (BE and BECOME) "Stephen Pirie's book, Be and Become, provides valuable insights and guidance principles for those of us who realize that "doing business as usual," simply won't work in the 21st century. Be and Become is not just a sit down and read book but a workbook designed for you and the problems you will surely face in this new century and, taking some of the ideas found in it in mind, this millennium. Borrowing from the quantum metaphors of the previous century, Pirie demolishes the old Darwinian saw and replaces it with a shining and hopeful spiritual vision." Dr. Fred Alan Wolf (Dr Quantum) Author, Taking The Quantum Leap "The book Be and Become is a significant contribution to the burgeoning field of self-development and spiritual awareness."

Many struggle through life in an uphill battle while faced with endless resistance from surviving to achieving. Some fight to find a state of happiness while being able to attain their dreams, while some throw in the towel and give up on existence completely. You don’t have to go through life alone, as there is help beyond the reaches of the physical world. Increasing Prayer with Faith for an Abundant Life is a non-denominational book open to all people from different walks of life needing a strengthening of their faith with a focus on the power of prayer. You don’t need to be religious to pray, since prayer is open to anyone willing to spend private time with God. You can use prayer to boost your faith, reduce fear, and give you clearer Divine reception. Prayers are similar to affirmations in that it is the intention behind the words that carry weight. The stronger your intention with your prayers, then the brighter the light around it is. Most people are not paying attention to the guidance and messages coming through from Heaven, nor do they understand how to recognize it, yet each and every soul has the strong capacity for receiving astonishing Divine communication hits. As a strong advocate for prayer, spiritual metaphysical author Kevin Hunter discusses the varying ways that prayer works and how you can create a stable partnership with God and your Spirit team to achieve on all levels from the spiritual to the practical. This doesn’t mean you’ll be pain and stress free, but it will help make life much easier and smoother when you have that robust Divine partnership. Some of the topics discussed in Increasing Prayer with Faith for an Abundant Life include: The Power of Prayer, Being Vigilant with Prayer and Affirmations, Asking for Divinely Guided Angelic Help, Turning Prayers Into Manifestation, Creating an Abundant Life with Faith, Increasing Faith to Accomplish, Achieve, and Persevere, Complaining Into Abundance, Taking Action on Divine Guidance, Having Gratitude and Optimism, The Significance of Spirituality, Spirit Is In Your Corner, The Commanding Function of Prayer, Divine Assistance, Spiritual Text Reminders on Faith and Prayer, andmuch more! Let more Light into your soul’s life with the Metaphysical Divine Wisdom collection of books. Each cover a variety of distinctive themes connected to the spiritual to the practical interwoven and back around again in a manner that is understood and palatable. The series includes Psychic Spirit Team Heaven Communication, theSoul’s Consciousness and Purpose, Manifesting Fearless Assertive Confidence, Balancing the Body, Mind, and Soul, Increasing Prayer with Faith for an Abundant Life, and Universal, Physical, Spiritual and Soul Love.
