From the beginning of the New Testament era, there have been disputes over what individual passages meant, who wrote them, when they were written, and whether certain sayings could be directly attributed to Jesus. McKenzie's aim is not to destroy the credibility of the New Testament, but rather to enhance belief by allowing it to rest on a foundation freed from various manmade illusions and historically inaccurate assumptions that modern biblical research has discovered from both internal and external evidence about the writings. Father McKenzie takes on a variety of topics -- the real Jesus and the Son of man; gospels and gossip; the roles of Peter and Paul; divorce; the resurrection; the meaning of the Apocalypse -- to name but a few, in this highly informative look at key themes and episodes of the New Testament.

From Illusions To Reality

The greatest mystery in the world is its very existence. In our intellectual development, we all reach a turning point when we start asking the perennial existential questions: "What is the world?"; "What am I?"; "What is the meaning of the existence of the world and myself?". As the German philosopher Schopenhauer put it: "The lower a man stands in intellectual respects the less of a riddle does existence seem to him... but, the clearer his consciousness becomes the more the problem grasps him in its greatness." This book explores what fundamental physics tells us about the physical world and how the scientific picture of what exists often differs disturbingly from the "common sense" view based on the way our senses reflect the world. Centuries-old illusions are identified by showing that they contradict experimentally-confirmed results of modern physics, which clears the way toward deeper understanding of reality. The greatest illusion that the world exists only at the present moment of time has been realized by many great thinkers, but so far the human race has been unable to free itself from it, prompting Einstein to write this: "the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion." Getting rid of such stubbornly persistent illusions by open-mindedly examining the implications of modern physics for the physical world can help us rise above the fog of everyday life and see Nature the way she herself is.

The region of Bihar is one of the great foci of Indian history. From before the days of Buddha it was a major centre of Indian Political life and the most significant cultural centres, especially in respect of Buddhism. Hitherto the student of Ancient India has been rather badly provided with geographical and topographical studies. Dr. M.S. Pandey has made a very significance contribution to the subject. The author has ransacked a very large range of sources for information and has produced a survey of the subject which may in many respects serve as a model to students working on other regions of India. The chapter helps in understanding the geographical forces behind historical events of the state. The author has dealt very scholarly the Historical outlines; mountain systems; river systems, regions & districts, place-names, communications etc. The book is written with scholarly acumen and clarity and is very evidently the work of a man with a deep affection for his native land.

Language And Creative Illusion

The theme of this book is the writing process that begins with thoughts and ends in words fixed on a page: a process of `creative illusion' illustrated here with reference to classic authors as diverse as Jonathan Swift and Scott Fitzgerald. The writer's engagement with a developing text is seen at two levels: one, a mental level of imaginative play, the other an editorial level that determines patterns of form, punctuation, grammar, the representation of speech, the variance of vocabulary and rhetorical figure. Addressing notions of creativeness Professor Walter Nash raises questions of aesthetics and sylistics, and of the critical interpretation of literary texts. These questions invite studies of various literary moulds - narrative, argument, dialogue, poetic discourse and translation. They in their turn draw attention to the brute circumstances of composition that affect all writers, literary or otherwise, and the book ends accordingly with a chapter entitled `The Biro, the Word-Processor and Putting Pen to Paper', in which the diverse tools and materials of writing are examined in their relationship to the act of composing. Language and Creative Illusion will be essential reading for all students of language and literature, as well as providing useful material to undergraduate students of creative writing, stylistics, and composition.
