The Divine Manifold from the Author: Roland Faber. The Divine Manifold is a postmodern enquiry in intersecting themes of the concept and reality of multiplicity in a chaosmos that does not refuse a dimension of theopoetics, but rather defines it in terms of divine polyphilia, the love of multiplicity. In an intricate play on Dante’s Divine Comedy, this book engages questions of religion and philosophy through the aporetic dynamics of love and power, locating its discussions in the midst of, and in between the spheres of a genuine philosophy of multiplicity. This philosophy originates from the poststructuralist approach of Gilles Deleuze and the process philosophical inspirations of Alfred N. Whitehead. As their chaosmos invites questions of ultimate reality, religious pluralism and multireligious engagement, a theopoetics of love will find paradoxical dissociations and harmonizations with postmodern sensitivities of language, power, knowledge and embodiment. At the intersection of poststructuralism’s and process theology’s insights in the liberating necessity of multiplicity for a postmodern cosmology, the book realizes its central claim. If there is a divine dimension of the chaosmos, it will not be found in any identification with mundane forces or supernatural powers, but on the contrary in the absolute difference of polyphilic love from creativity. Yet, the concurrent indifference of love and power—its mystical undecidability in terms of any conceptualization—will lead into existential questions of the insistence on multiplicity in a world of infinite becoming as inescapable background for its importance and creativeness, formulating an ecological and ethical impulse for a mystagogy of becoming intermezzo.

Readings In Sri Aurobindo S The Life Divine Volume 2 from the Author: Santosh Krinsky. Readings in Sri Aurobindo's The Life Divine Volume 2 There is probably no other book [Sri Aurobindo's The Life Divine] that I know of which so well, completely, rationally and intuitively addresses the questions of our existence and the meaning of life, and provides a cogent answer rooted in the highest spiritual realization and yogic experience that can be adapted by all, regardless of their particular background or inclinations. Santosh Krinsky, a life long student of Sri Aurobindo, with great devotion, dedication and attention has served this crucial role of providing a bridge to help us enter more deeply into the vast universe of consciousness that Aurobindo holds open for humanity today. He leads the reader through each page of The Life Divine by extracting its essence. In this way, he makes the book easier to access, with no loss of its broader meaning. - from the Foreword by Dr. David Frawley, author of Yoga and Ayurveda

The Divine Armory Of Holy Scripture from the Author: Reverend Kenelm Vaughan. In putting together this Scripture Text-Book, use has been freely made of the Roman Ritual, of the Paradisus Animœ, and, with due authority, of several modern compilations of Scripture texts. A grateful acknowledgment is especially due to the distinguished disciple and student of St. Thomas, the Rev. Dr. Gildea, for the Introductions to the five Books and their several Parts, which, with only two or three exceptions, are the work of his pen. These Introductions contain in a brief form the essence of theological teaching; and though treating often of abstruse and difficult subjects, they are written in so clear and easy a style as to be intelligible to any ordinary mind. An acknowledgment is also due for much assistance rendered by the Rev. Henry M. Bayley, B.A. Cantab., in drawing up the Calendar of Scripture Saints: a Calendar which will serve to bring the reader into a closer union of mind and heart with those great Saints whose lives are recorded or referred to in Holy Writ.

Exposition Of First Peter Volume 2 Of 2 from the Author: John Brown. After the Introduction (pp. 1-29), his first subject is The Christian Salvation (30-60); next is, The Present and Future State of the Christian Contrasted (pp.61-79); The Final Happiness of the Christians (80-104); Christian Duty (pp. 105-163), etc. Under each of these subjects, there are extensive sub-heads. Under Christian Duty are: The general view; the particular view; the means of performance of Christian Duty; Motives to the performance of Christian Duty; The holiness of God; The strict equity of God, etc. There are segments for all the verses, but the discourse may not take up a verse word-for-word. The comments are excellent in every way. The reader will meet with many beautiful facets of the Truth in this epistle which cannot be found in any other exposition of this book. Each page is studded with Scripture references from both Testaments, all of them magnify the light being thrown on the subject. For instance, in dealing with the expression ""a peculiar people,"" Brown points out that the original means ""a people for possession"" Or, ""treasure,"" and he brings in no less than 12 scripture references, all of them demonstrating that God's people are His treasure: 'He makes it evident that the Lord has set apart the godly man for Himself; and, ""in the day that He shall make up His jewels,"" collect His treasure, He will bestow on them such ""an exceeding weight of glory"" as shall make all the intelligent universe acknowledge that they are HIS; in a peculiar sense His property, . . ."" Spurgeon remarked that all of John Brown's ""expositions are of the utmost value;"" ""pure gold,"" and that he was ""a Puritan born out of time."" ""Has stood the test of time. Full and complete. Indispensable to the expositor"" (The Minister's Library, Cyril J. Barber).
