The Golden Thread from the Author: Natalie N. Banks. The constant reappearance of the Ancient or Ageless Wisdom, that body of inner or esoteric teaching handed down from remote times in a form suitable to the period has always attracted the minds of thoughtful people. Through its remarkable preservation and continuity it has been compared in symbol to a golden thread: a spiritual life-line waxing or waning in clarity and intensity from century to century.

The Golden Thread from the Author: Ewan Clayton. The Golden Thread is an enthralling and accessible history of the cultural miracle that is the written word. It is an invention that has been used to share ideas in every field of human endeavour, and a motor of cultural, scientific and political progress. From the simple representative shapes used to record transactions of goods and animals in ancient Egypt, to the sophisticated typographical resources available to the twenty-first-century computer user, the story of writing is the story of human civilization itself. Ewan Clayton marks each step in the historical development of writing, and explores the social and cultural impact of every stage: the invention of the alphabet; the replacement of the papyrus scroll with the codex in the late Roman period; the perfecting of printing using moveable type in the fifteenth century and the ensuing spread of literacy; the industrialization of printing during the Industrial Revolution; the impact of artistic Modernism on the written word in the early twentieth century - and of the digital switchover at the century's close. The Golden Thread raises issues of urgent interest for a society living in an era of unprecedented change to the tools and technologies of written communication. Chief amongst these is the fundamental question: 'What does it mean to be literate in the world of the early twenty-first century?' The Golden Thread belongs on the bookshelves of anyone who is inquisitive not just about the centrality of writing in the history of humanity, but also about its future.

The Golden Thread from the Author: Patt Mills. After worrying with this situation of God' all of my live, I am reconciled that there is no God of the relationship I have always been taught. -- God' started this whole thing with a Big Bang? (Not if he looked anything like us or cared what we do, especially in this pitiable state of evolution). By studying our past we find that Man has always had a sense of longing to be better, someone or something to worship, but he was wise enough to call it what it is: his ideas. This does not encompass the other side of the coin, or dark side of our beings, which I have covered in this book. --We have discovered that we are so small in the whole scheme of things, an infinitesimal amount of energy, (like one grain of sand in the whole desert of all our world). Here we are one small atom in the galaxies of space, temporarily ruled by one set of mammals, does it really make a difference what we learn? --I suppose it does make a difference to us --(not that we can do anything about it, except to try).

The Golden Thread from the Author: Ken Vincent. The Golden Thread God's Promise of Universal Salvation In our modern pluralistic world, the barriers imposed by the old doctrine of religious exclusivity are confronted every day by individuals, families, and nations. Now more than ever, the inspirational message of God's Universal and eternal love for all humanity needs to be retold. By reacquainting readers with the God who is too good to condemn anyone to Eternal Hell, The Golden Thread, God's Promise of Universal Salvation offers a Biblical interpretation present in Christianity from the earliest Jesus-Followers to the 21st Century. Salvation for all is known as Universalism, and the idea that all people will be saved-either immediately or eventually-is called Universal Restoration. Proponents of Universalism can be found today within a wide variety of denominations from post-Vatican II Catholics to Primitive Baptists. The Golden Thread brings together the Bible verses that ancient and modern Universalist theologians have used to show that God is the parent of all and, in the end, will save the "Lost Sheep" and the "Prodigal Son." The Golden Thread continues with 2,000 years of Christian mystical religious experience and modern-day near-death experiences-testimony to God's abiding love for all.

The Golden Thread from the Author: Joscelyn Godwin. The Golden Thread traces the interconnectedness of esoteric wisdom in the Western world, from classical antiquity to contemporary Europe and America. Joscelyn Godwin lends personal perspective to an arrangement of text that is historical and wisdom that is timeless, creating a source of inspiration that calls us to action in our everyday spiritual practice. Every chapter, therefore, makes reference to some aspect of contemporary life and issues of immediate concern. Elegantly written and not without irony and humor, readers will appreciate the non-threatening tone of Godwin’s writing, which is not meant to preach or convert but rather inform the public on an often baffling field. Educated readers who are curious about the esoteric and mystery traditions and interested in finding surprising, new approaches to subjects that veer away from the trends of current thought will be particularly drawn to this book.
