Peter Deunov (Beinsa Dounov), who lived in Bulgaria from 1864 to 1944, was a great and inspired teacher of the Perennial Wisdom - the essential thread of truth running through all the major world religions. He was an extraordinary man who at once embodied great simplicity and tremendous profundity. All those who knew him testified to the fact that he inspired inner excellence in very ordinary people. His teachings are both direct and clear, and will speak to everybody whatever their creed. Essentially they give a prescription for living in harmony with others, with the Earth and with the Divine.Prophet for Our Times is being brought back into print following Dr. Wayne D. Dyer's desire to share the work of the philosopher who greatly influenced him. This selection of teachings makes ideal reading for anyone on the spiritual path. It explains simply and directly how to find love, wisdom, truth, justice, harmony, and balance in life. It also gives advice on techniques of prayer, meditation, and visualization, and valuable information on right diet and exercise to assist inner focus and clarity. Peter Deunov's wise words will speak to everyone, and will have special appeal to those searching for an authentic spiritual tradition of Western origin.

The Man Who Inspired the World's Fastest-Growing Religion Muhammad presents a fascinating portrait of the founder of a religion that continues to change the course of world history. Muhammad's story is more relevant than ever because it offers crucial insight into the true origins of an increasingly radicalized Islam. Countering those who dismiss Islam as fanatical and violent, Armstrong offers a clear, accessible, and balanced portrait of the central figure of one of the world's great religions.
What if there was another Moses, very different from the one we know? According to tradition, Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible. He is depicted there in a surprising way: with and against God; with and against his people; bringer of the Tablets of the Law, which he breaks; a stuttering prophet, guide to a Promised Land entry to which remains forbidden to him, and dead in an unknown tomb... Highly confusing for those who imagine a Moses carved out of a single block. By way a series of possible portraits - including one of a female Moses - Jean-Christophe Attias follows the metamorphoses of the Hebrew liberator through ages and cultures. Drawing on rabbinical sources as well as the Bible itself, he examines the words of the texts and especially their silences. He discovers here a fragile prophet, teacher of a Judaism of the spirit, of wandering, and of incompleteness. Receive and transmit. Listen, even when the message is confusing. Insistently question, especially when there is no answer. And always, remain free. This seems to be the Judaism of Moses. A Judaism that speaks to believers and others - to Jews, of course, but also far beyond them, inviting its hearers to have done with tribal pride, the violence of weapons, and the tyranny of a special place.
• Reflections on current affairs through the lens of history •A resource for social justice and resilience Ida B. Wells was a powerful churchwoman and witness for justice and equity from 1878–1931. Born enslaved, her witness flowed through the struggles for justice in her lifetime, especially in the intersections of African Americans, women, and those who were poor. Her life is a profound witness for faith-based work of visionary power, resistance, and resilience for today’s world, when the forces of injustice stand in opposition to progress. These are exciting and dangerous times. Boundaries that previously seemed impenetrable are now being crossed. This book is a guide for the current state of affairs in American culture, enlivened by the historical perspective of Wells’ search for justice. The authors are an African-American woman and a child of white supremacy. Both have dedicated themselves to working, writing, and developing ministries oriented toward justice, equity, and mercy. This book can be used in all settings, but most especially in churches (pastors and other church leaders, study groups), seminaries, and universities.
In a world where powerful lobbies are vilifying the Qur'an as the underlying cause of conflicts-conflicts that are actually rooted in greed and the self-serving secular politics of oil, occupation and social injustice-how can non-Muslims discover the authentic teachings of the Qur'an? How can they work with Muslims to overcome mutual suspicions, stereotyping, and self-serving propaganda? A starting point is would be to recognize that Muslims worldwide are engaged in diverse and robust internal debates. While it is an integral part of the Islamic faith that the Qur'an is the infallible "Word of God," the plain fact is that there is significant disagreement among the faithful over what the revealed texts mean or imply on a host of issues. In Living the Qur'an in Our Times, the author combines theological insight and philosophical erudition to delve into the semantics of the Qur'an and its vision. This work explains why traditional religion has failed to respond adequately to challenges posed by modernity. It strives to recognize the intimate connection between a Muslim's struggle to live the Qur'an authentically and the many ethical and moral dilemmas one faces daily in one's life. Enlightening for all those who are unfamiliar with Islamic history and the Qur'an, this book explores foundational Islamic principles that emphasize mutual respect and cooperation among all people, thus helping cultivate a vibrant Islamic identity in today's interdependent, multicultural global environment.
