No discipline has been more uniformly derided for a longer period than metaphysics. Of the ancient and medieval sciences now in disrepute, even astrology and alchemy get better press. The most devastating--and currently the most influential--attack on metaphysics has come from a broad spectrum of thinkers including Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Arendt, Levinas, Derrida, and Milbank, who have argued that metaphysics is the root of modern nihilism and totalitarianism. Anthony Mansueto puts this claim to the test, developing a historical sociology of metaphysics that analyzes the social basis and political valence of metaphysical systems. Mansueto does this globally and cross-culturally, engaging not only the Hellenic tradition and its extension into medieval Christendom and Dar-al-Islam, but also the Indian and Chinese traditions. Specifically, Mansueto argues that far from representing the roots of nihilism or modern state terror, metaphysics emerges (and continues to be necessary) as a way to ground meaning and value in societies--especially in market societies in which these have become problematic. Metaphysics tends to restrain exploitation and to encourage the redirection of surplus toward activities that promote development of human capacities. Knowing God: The Journey of the Dialectic concludes with an outline of a new dialectical metaphysics that reconciles a Buddhist metaphysics of interdependence in the Hua-yen tradition with a historicized metaphysics of Esse, yielding results that look startlingly like the dao xue, or neo-Confucianism of Song China. Mansueto shows how such a metaphysics can ground meaning and value while answering postmodern concerns to safeguard difference.

Modern humanity with some 5,000 years of recorded history has been experiencing growing pains, with no end in sight. It is high time for humanity to grow up and to transcend itself by embracing transhumanism. Transhumanism offers the most inclusive ideology for all ethnicities and races, the religious and the atheists, conservatives and liberals, the young and the old regardless of socioeconomic status, gender identity, or any other individual qualities. This book expounds on contemporary views and practical advice from more than 70 transhumanists. Astronaut Neil Armstrong said on the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969, “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” Transhumanism is the next logical step in the evolution of humankind, and it is the existential solution to the long-term survival of the human race.

Every year, the Indian pilgrimage town of Pushkar sees its population of 20,000 swell by two million visitors. Since the 1970s, Pushkar, which is located about 250 miles southwest of the capital of New Delhi, has received considerable attention from international tourists. Originally hippies and backpackers, today's visitors now come from a wide range of social positions. To locals, though, Pushkar is more than just a gathering place for pilgrims and tourists: it is where Brahma, the creator god, made his home; it is where Hindus should feel blessed to stay, if only for a short time; and it is where locals would feel lucky to be reborn, if only as a pigeon. In short, it is their paradise. But even paradise needs upkeep. In Guest is God, Drew Thomases uses ethnographic fieldwork to explore the massive enterprise of building heaven on earth. The articulation of sacred space necessarily works alongside economic changes brought on by tourism and globalization. Here the contours of what actually constitutes paradise are redrawn by developments in, and the agents of, tourism. And as paradise is made and remade, people in Pushkar help to create a brand of Hindu religion that is tailored to its local surroundings while also engaging global ideas. The goal, then, becomes to show how religion and tourism can be mutually constitutive.

As A Million and One Gods shows, polytheism is considered a scandalous presence in societies oriented to Jewish, Christian, and Muslim beliefs. Yet it persists, even in the West, perhaps because polytheism corresponds to unconscious needs and deeply held values of tolerance, diversity, and equality that are central to civilized societies.

The Greatest Story Ever Told Dispute over land and kingdom may lie at the heart of this story of war between cousins—the Pandavas and the Kouravas—but the Mahabharata is about conflicts of dharma. These conflicts are immense and various, singular and commonplace. Throughout the epic, characters face them with no clear indications of what is right and what is wrong; there are no absolute answers. Thus every possible human emotion features in the Mahabharata, the reason the epic continues to hold sway over our imagination. In this superb and widely acclaimed translation of the complete Mahabharata, Bibek Debroy takes us on a great journey with incredible ease.

In The Forty Faces of God, I take you through scriptures that show you the characters of our God relating to the number 40 with the revelation of numbers. Numbers have strong meaning in the kingdom of God.We are destroyed by our lack of knowledge, and that knowledge is of God. For example, the number 6 means to destroy the works of the devil. David had a six hundred-man army, and the Star of David had six points, and what did David do? He destroyed the enemies of Israel. Chapter 6 of Ephesians tells us how to destroy the fiery attacks of the enemy. The number 40 means spiritual maturity and the more we know God, the more we mature. After you read this book, you will know God in a much better way, which will make you a much better disciple of Jesus—make you much stronger in your walk and display of the power God in your life in this evil and perverse world.Dwayne Anthony Velasquez Hill was born April 9, 1964, in the Abraham Lincoln Courts Housing Projects on the west side of San Antonio—a gang-and-drug-saturated neighborhood. From his childhood he witnessed violence, murder, and drug dealing. At seventeen, he joined the US Navy after graduation. After the Navy, he abused alcohol and drugs and became a murderous-minded person until he met his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In and out of jail and twice in prison, the Lord started to teach Dwayne his way in those lonely prison cells, and he became a teacher of the gospel there in the jails and prisons. Now being fully persuaded of his purpose, Dwayne now goes into the prisons teaching and preaching the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Why is so little reference made to covenant in the New Testament? What importance does it have to us? If we knew more about how the new covenant operates, might it change the way we relate to God? In this study, the subject of "in Him" takes on a dynamic new meaning when seen diagrammed in the new covenant, becoming the apex of Christian understanding. This subject woven into covenant creates a picture of God's undying relationship to man that cannot be broken. The new covenant of love culminated the development of God's covenants to man. It is beyond man's comprehension as to why a supreme being would venture such an undertaking as man, although it seems that this project was in God's planning all along and is the crowning act that all other creations point to. In God's plan He gives man the freedom of choice as to whether to seek Him or deny Him. Faith in His existence and dedication to Him leads to an eternal relationship. Thoughts in this book deal with creating and deepening that faith. An understanding of these and other subjects has been a historic journey in my life, so now, let your journey begin. Jesse Maurice Wright was born in 1935 in south Texas to a very Bible oriented family. His father, M.A. Wright was an evangelist for the Church of Christ in many locations in the south, west and central U.S. He has been married to Janiece for 55 years and has two children, four grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Maurice has served as deacon to congregations in Colorado, Nevada and Oregon. He has been an elder at the University Church of Christ in Denver, Colorado. His working career has been in building contracting which ended in the electrical field. He is an avid private pilot having built three small aircraft. His retirement years have been mainly spent exploring his interest in God's covenants which explains this, his only book. IMPORTANT

Proving Faith By: George Vaughan Bower In science we can prove the positive and the negative. But can we disprove faith? Is there a logical test that can be put together? George Bower has been trying to figure out the answers to these questions for some time and has finally had the courage to take an honest look at the question. He places the foundations of the major faith systems under a microscope and finds surprising results.

Keeping God at the Center is informative as well as instructional. It contains four kinds of teaching: first, insights derived from pondering the meaning of selected phrases and prayers from the traditional liturgy; second: four chapters on the personalist theology behind traditional Jewish prayer; third, meditations on the liturgy and clear instructions on how to pray certain prayers; and, fourth, instructions on how to pray certain prayers mystically. Both those well-acquainted with the prayerbook and those completely unfamiliar with it will be able to derive benefit from this book. It is a continuation of the main themes of Blumenthal’s earlier work in Jewish spirituality, theology, and mysticism.
