In 1900 a group of sponge divers blown off course in the Mediterranean discovered an Ancient Greek shipwreck dating from around 70 BC. Lying unnoticed for months amongst their hard-won haul was what appeared to be a formless lump of corroded rock, which turned out to be the most stunning scientific artefact we have from antiquity. For more than a century this 'Antikythera mechanism' puzzled academics, but now, more than 2000 years after the device was lost at sea, scientists have pieced together its intricate workings. In Decoding the Heavens, Jo Marchant tells for the first time the story of the 100-year quest to understand this ancient computer. Along the way she unearths a diverse cast of remarkable characters - ranging from Archimedes to Jacques Cousteau - and explores the deep roots of modern technology not only in Ancient Greece, the Islamic world and medieval Europe.

Unmatched in complexity for 1000 years, it was able to predict eclipses and track the paths of the Sun and the Moon through the zodiac, and probably even showed ancient astronomers the movements of the five known planets.

At heart an epic adventure story, it is a book that challenges our assumption

Using both his background in interpreting biblical research and his interest in word-puzzles, nationally known journalist John Dart uncovers lengthy codes that illuminate the intent of Mark's gospel, with explosive results that will shake the foundation of New Testament studies. Dart unlocks ancient, puzzle-like writing devices called chiasms, which are found throughout Mark, to reconstruct the original Gospel. By focusing on the presence or absence of these chiasms in particular parts, he identifies six miracles in the Gospel added by a later editor. He recovers passages from the Secret Gospel of Mark - a once-disputed find - that the pattern of chiasms repeatedly indicates had been deleted from original Mark.

By exploring the deepest insights from your dreams, you can find out more about who you are and your purpose in life, then discern what gifts you are born to give to others and your needs that others can meet. The author has pioneered a theory of the progressive development of dreams throughout the sleeping period. He shows how our dreams are expressions of the underlying dreams of nature itself, the secret life of the Gaia world revealed as a vast, living, self-regulating organism. The key to this unique and dramatic interpretive method unfolds in fantastically illustrated pages that explain how to keep and use a dream journal to identify your most important patterns and themes, and analyze their messages.

Decoding Jesus will forever change your view about Jesus! John Calvin (1509-1564) and Ellen G. White (1827-1915), though divergent in many ways, shared a pivotal common denominator: the Judeo-Christian Bible from Genesis to Revelation as a major template from which they reflected on the close connectedness, and radical difference of God, human beings, and the created environment. Calvin encountered a theological conundrum. He was unaware that one cannot hold on to the 16th-century Reformation of employing the biblical historical time-line from Genesis to Revelation (as a reflexive scheme on God’s four grand acts: creation, reconciliation [the cross/redemption], renewal [Pentecost/Holy Spirit] and fulfillment/end of time), whilst simultaneously embracing the classical first millennium Trinitarian view. Karl Barth, the great Swiss Reformed theologian of the early 20th century, was aware of Calvin’s conundrum. Barth resolved that the dogma of the Trinity is not found in the Bible, but should be used as a good dogma operating as the main starting pattern of one’s theology. How further can one go than Barth in giving the notion of the Trinity a biblical vote of no confidence? White treaded softly around the Trinity notion. Her vast ocean of voluminous writings is devoid of the word Trinity. She visited Switzerland, and having read Calvin’s doctrines, she most likely saw Calvin and the Reformation’s contradiction concerning the dogma of the Trinity, and wanted to avoid the same trap.

She is thrust forward onto a dangerous path that takes her from the safety of her everyday world into the radiant landscape where true power lives. Here, she is introduced to an ancient couple, who have lived and loved beyond time itself. She offers up her heart to become a co-conspirator with them in an unbelievable task. She must journey into the ancient records and retrieve the knowledge that broke this ancient couple and humanity itself apart.
