Indie Book Awards Winner: A deeply affirming exploration of the unknown—the challenges, the possibilities, and how to navigate uncertainty without fear For most of us, the unknown is both friend and foe. At times, it can be a source of paralyzing fear and uncertainty. At other times, it can be a starting point for transformation, creativity, and growth. The unknown is a deep current that runs throughout all religions and mystical traditions, plays an important role in contemporary psychotheraputic thought and practice, and is essential to personal growth and healing. In The Wisdom of Not Knowing, psychotherapist Estelle Frankel shows us that our psychological, emotional, and spiritual health is radically influenced by how comfortable we are with navigating the unknown and uncertain dimensions of our lives. Drawing on insights from Kabbalah, depth psychology, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, and ancient myth, Frankel explores how we can grow our souls by tapping into the wisdom of not knowing. She also includes case studies of individuals who have grappled with fears of the unknown and, as a result, come out wiser, stronger, and more resilient. Each chapter includes experiential exercises and meditations for befriending the unknown, conveying how embracing a state of "not knowing" is the key to gaining new knowledge, learning to bear uncertainty, and enjoying a healthy sense of adventure and curiosity.

"This book tells the story of Isabel's life from early childhood to young adulthood, growing up in Spain in the 1970s and 1980s. It is told through the voice of Isabel as she struggles to make sense of her bewildering world of family rules and social norms, where children are expected to do as they were told without discussion. Isabel is the fifth child of seven, watching both her older and younger siblings' interests and behaviour through the lens of a little girl who finds it difficult to play and engage with others.

Isabel is a serious little girl who watches everything, seeing minute details in every aspect of her life. Repeatedly she describes the anxiety she feels of "not knowing" what is going to happen and when she might be expected to do something outside of her comfort zone. The stories of her traumatic start at school, the tonsillectomy, her father's terrifying behaviour towards his children, and her adolescent emotions and first experience of sex are told with vivid attention to detail.

Although autism is never explicitly mentioned in this book, Isabel's struggles to make sense of the world, her ability to focus with such intensity and the overwhelming anxiety that she experiences are all features of girls and women with Asperger's syndrome, or autism. Indeed, the behaviour of Isabel's father, Roberto, suggests that he too is on the spectrum, with behaviours that make him frightening and unpredictable to a child.

This book has been sensitively written and the story is engaging and unpredictable. It also gives insight into how a girl who might be on the autistic spectrum struggles to cope with the demands of social and family life. I can thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about family sagas or who is interested in childhood and autism."

Over decades of martial arts and meditation practice, Peter Ralston discovered a curious and paradoxical fact: that true awareness arises from a state of not-knowing. Even the most sincere investigation of self and spirit, he says, is often sabotaged by our tendency to grab too quickly for answers and ideas as we retreat to the safety of the known. This "Hitchhiker’s Guide to Awareness" provides helpful guideposts along an experiential journey for those Western minds predisposed to wandering off to old habits, cherished presumptions, and a stubbornly solid sense of self. With ease and clarity Ralston teaches readers how to become aware of the background patterns that they are usually too busy, stressed, or distracted to notice. The Book of Not Knowing points out the ways people get stuck in their lives and offers readers a way to make fresh choices about every aspect of their lives, from a place of awareness instead of autopilot.

How authentic is your Christian life? Is it merely a copy of what you’ve assimilated from outside sources—a karaoke version? Or does it flow from a deep, hidden spring within you that has its source in God himself? How broad is your secret history with God? This book seeks to draw us into a place with God through the intimate knowledge of Jesus, who produces a flow of life from the very source of life himself. Why be content with secondary sources when you can have pure water from the primary source? Author Keith Pointon describes how God redirected his life during a crisis, after he had been a Christian already for twenty-eight years. It led him into an exciting adventure of discovering Jesus in a new way, an adventure that continues unabated after more than a quarter of a century. He invites you to share in his insights gained from this adventure, providing a sure foundation for a fruitful life, pleasing both to Jesus and the Father.

Transformation begins with Candice Irene desiring to get to know God and to be in a more intimate relationship with her Heavenly Family. In the beginning, Candice did not recognize God’s blessings because she did not know how to actually understand or feel God. After hours of writing and study of The Bible, she became more aware of God’s Holiness in her life, the same as the feelings of hunger or thirst. So throughout her life experiences, trials and tribulations, she came to feel, hear, and know God, her Savior Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit dwelling within her! After years of seeking the Lord wholeheartedly she discovered she had become a new, spiritual-minded woman. Her old desires and way of life had changed as in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” Candice discovered after writing this book she had indeed become a new creation in Christ, and was forever transformed! She delights in the feeling of being loved for eternity. She learned through her personal journey stories that God has always been with her and will never - ever forsake her.

If someone asked, "Are you a fan of Jesus?", how would you answer? You attend every movie featuring a certain actor, you know the stats of your sports hero, and can recite each lyric from your favorite band. In short, you're a huge fan. But are you treating Jesus the same as the other people you admire? The truth is, Jesus wants more than the church attendance, occasional prayer, and the ability to recite Scripture—the fan response. He's looking for people who are actually willing to sacrifice in order to follow him. In this student edition of Not a Fan, Kyle Idleman uses humor, personal stories, and biblical truth as he challenges you to look at what it means to call yourself a Christian, and what it means to follow the radical call Jesus presents. So will you be a fan, or a follower?

Short Term Spiritual Guidance

Author : Duane R. Bidwell

This book represents a significant departure from most contemporary writing about spiritual direction. While most writers focus on long-term relationships of guidance, specifically envisioning long listening sessions, Bidwell changes focus. Spiritual direction, he insists, typically requires intervention in a specific crisis or situation or question, is not formal, lasts fewer than five sessions, and must be actively and intentionally focused on the person's growth. Bidwell's work shows what spiritual directors can learn from the short-term therapy model, especially about enabling people briefly but effectively to ''learn to listen on their own and with others for God's presence.'' Focusing on how God is already active in the directee's life allows the participants to identify God's action and respond in ways that collaborate with that identified movement of the Spirit.

Alister McGrath, a widely acknowledged master of contemporary spirituality, has written a profound meditation on one of the most deceptively simple-sounding tenets of the Christian faith, the centrality of Christ in the life of his followers, in Knowing Christ. Written in an accessible style that will appeal to Christians of all denominations, Knowing Christ aims to stimulate a more direct and intimate relationship between Christ and the reader by engaging not just the intellect but, more important, the heart and imagination. It is a work of spirituality saturated with biblical texts and themes, but it also draws on the rich tradition in art and literature of Christian reflection on the centrality of Christ throughout the ages. The result is a lively, engaging, and always inspiring book of twenty-first century spirituality from one of the world's most popular and respected Christian writers, a book that will strengthen the faith of all who read it.

Experiencing The Knowing Of Faith

What is religious faith? And how does modern society view truth? Sharon Warner, in Experiencing the Knowing of Faith, discusses the understanding formed by "deep truth," or knowledge intrinsic to a person's self-identity. She critiques today's susceptibility to the paradigm of Cartesian dualities such as mind-body and subject-object, and in doing so utilizes the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead and Michael Polanyi. Concluding with an exploration of the relevance of this theory for teaching faith, the work will be of great use to religious scholars and to philosophers.
