Iconic Spirits from the Author: Mark Spivak. Over the past decade, the cocktail culture has exploded across America. Bars and lounges have become the Broadway theater of mixology, with bartenders resurrecting classic pre-Prohibition cocktails and dazzling customers with their creations. Consumers, in turn, are recreating these cocktails at home, and spending unprecedented amounts on upscale bar gear. With more and more emphasis on quality ingredients, the number of small-batch spirits is increasing all the time, and craft distilling has become popular as an offshoot of the locavore movement. In Iconic Spirits, Mark Spivak, wine and spirits guru and host of the NPR show Uncorked!, explores the history and cultural significance of twelve iconic spirits and reveals how moonshine invented NASCAR; how gin almost toppled the British Empire; how a drink that tastes like castor oil flavored with tree bark became one of the sexiest things on earth; how cognac became the "it" drink of hip-hop culture, and much more. To top it all off, Spivak then offers the most tantalizing cocktail recipes from the era in which each spirit was invented.

The Origins Of Shamanism Spirit Beliefs And Religiosity from the Author: H. Sidky. In The Origins of Shamanism, Spirit Beliefs, and Religiosity: A Cognitive Anthropological Perspective, H. Sidky examines shamanism as an ancient magico-religious, divinatory, medical, and psychotherapeutic tradition found in various parts of the world. Sidky uses first-hand ethnographic fieldwork and scientific theoretical work in archaeology, cognitive and evolutionary psychology, and neurotheology to explore the origins of shamanism, spirit beliefs, the evolution of human consciousness, and the origins of ritual behavior and religiosity.. He specifically addresses a set of related questions with which scholars of shamanism in various fields have been struggling for generations: What is shamanism as a pan-human phenomenon? When and why did shamanism first arise? What are the relationships between shamanism, human cognition, and altered states of consciousness? Why have people across space and time needed shamans or specialists in spirits and ghosts? Why have shamanistic traditions persisted over time? The objective of this study is to further our understanding of spirit beliefs, the evolution of human consciousness, the origins of ritual behavior and religiosity, and the various aspects of the beliefs and practices called shamanism.

Our Triune God from the Author: Peter Toon. Who is the God of the Bible? From both within the church and outside her walls the orthodox doctrine of the Holy Trinity, declared in Scripture and passed down in ecumenical creeds and local confessions of faith, is under attack. The emerging absence of a Trinitarian mind-set so prevalent in the church today has enormous implications for the future of the Christian faith. Concerned to counter contemporary attacks on the doctrine of God, Peter Toon here demonstrates the existence and priority of a Trinitarian pattern in Scripture and defends the essential role of the Trinity in Christian belief, faith, and practice.
