Summary : Mary Eberstadt, “one of the most acute and creative social observers of our time,” (Francis Fukuyama) shines a much-needed spotlight on a disturbing trend in American society: discrimination against traditional religious belief and believers, who are being aggressively pushed out of public life by the concerted efforts of militant secularists. In It’s Dangerous to Believe, Mary Eberstadt documents how people of faith—especially Christians who adhere to traditional religious beliefs—face widespread discrimination in today’s increasingly secular society. Eberstadt details how recent laws, court decisions, and intimidation on campuses and elsewhere threaten believers who fear losing their jobs, their communities, and their basic freedoms solely because of their convictions. They fear that their religious universities and colleges will capitulate to aggressive secularist demands. They fear that they and their families will be ostracized or will have to lose their religion because of mounting social and financial penalties for believing. They fear they won’t be able to maintain charitable operations that help the sick and feed the hungry. Is this what we want for our country? Religious freedom is a fundamental right, enshrined in the First Amendment. With It’s Dangerous to Believe Eberstadt calls attention to this growing bigotry and seeks to open the minds of secular liberals whose otherwise good intentions are transforming them into modern inquisitors. Not until these progressives live up to their own standards of tolerance and diversity, she reminds us, can we build the inclusive society America was meant to be.

Summary : Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche gave these teachings during a Medicine Buddha retreat held at Land of Medicine Buddha in Soquel, California, from October 26 to November 17, 2001. Edited by Ailsa Cameron, this book covers an amazing range of topics. From a review in BuddhaDharma magazine: Teachings From the Medicine Buddha Retreat is a nearly complete record of the teachings given by Lama Zopa Rinpoche during a twenty-five day Medicine Buddha retreat in the fall of 2001. The sections are short, on topics such as making offerings to the buddhas and the nature of mind. The retreat was held less than two months after the 9/11 attacks, and Lama Zopa's teachings are full of references to terrorism, war, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The book is not meant as a coherent presentation on any particular topic; however, one is rewarded by just opening it and reading anywhere. Lama Zopa is a clear and effective teacher, and his stories are endlessly entertaining and inspiring. This book is made possible by kind supporters of the Archive who, like you, appreciate how we make these teachings freely available in so many ways, including in our website for instant reading, listening or downloading, and as printed and electronic books.

Summary : In the fourth mystery in Philip Kerr's New York Times bestselling series, Bernie Gunther—a former policeman and reluctant SS offier—attempts to start over in the aftermath of World War 2 and quickly learns that the past is never far behind you... Berlin, 1949. Amid the chaos of defeat, Germany is a place of dirty deals, rampant greed, and fleeing Nazis. For Bernie Gunther, Berlin has become far too dangerous. After being forced to serve in the SS in the killing fields of Ukraine, Bernie has moved to Munich to reestablish himself as a private investigator. Business is slow and his funds are dwindling when a woman hires him to investigate her husband's disappearance. No, she doesn't want him back—he's a war criminal. She merely wants confirmation that he is dead. It's a simple job, but in postwar Germany, nothing is simple—nothing is what it appears to be. Accepting the case, Bernie takes on far more than he'd bargained for, and before long, he is on the run, facing enemies from every side.

Summary : In this masterly, deeply personal, and provocative book, the internationally renowned Mexican writer Carlos Fuentes, whose work has been called “a combination of Poe, Baudelaire, and Isak Dinesen” (Newsweek), steps back to survey the wellsprings of art and ideology, the events that have shaped our time, and his extraordinary life and fiercest passions. Arranged alphabetically from “Amore” to “Zurich,” This I Believe takes us on a marvelous inner journey with a great writer. Fuentes ranges wide, from contradictions inherent in Latin American culture and politics to his long friendship with director Luis Buñuel. Along the way, we find reflection on the mixed curse and blessing of globalization; memories of a sexual initiation in Zurich; a fond tracing of a family tree heavy with poets, dreamers, and diplomats; evocations of the streets, cafés, and bedrooms of Washington, Paris, Santiago de Chile, Cambridge, Oaxaca, and New York; and a celebration of literary heroes including Balzac, Cervantes, Faulkner, Kafka, and Shakespeare. Throughout, Fuentes captivates with the power of his intellect and his prose. Here, too, are vivid, often heartbreaking glimpses into his personal life. “Silvia” is a powerful love letter to his beloved wife. In “Children,” Fuentes recalls the births of his daughters and the tragic death of his son; in “Cinema” he relives the magic of films such as Citizen Kane and The Wizard of Oz. Further extending his reach, he examines the collision between history and contemporary life in “Civil Society,” “Left,” and “Revolution.” And he poignantly addresses the experiences we all hold in common as he grapples with beauty, death, freedom, God, and sex. By turns provocative and intimate, partisan and universal, this book is a brilliant summation of an international literary career. Revisiting the influences, commitments, readings, and insights of a lifetime, Fuentes has fashioned a magnificently coherent statement of his view of the world, reminding us once again why reading Fuentes is “like standing beneath the dome of the Sistine Chapel. . . . The breadth and enormity of this accomplishment is breathtaking” (The Denver Post).

Summary : The state is often ascribed a special sort of authority, one that obliges citizens to obey its commands and entitles the state to enforce those commands through threats of violence. This book argues that this notion is a moral illusion: no one has ever possessed that sort of authority.

Summary : The book is divided in three important parts. Part one talks about God, devil, human, and choices. Part two talks about my biography. My biography reveals some of the reasons why I believe that we are who we are not by choice. Part three talks about the American justice system, and a law suit I filed on my own, against a bank. We say in America justice is for all! I say in America, the justice system is simply a little bit better than other places that I’ve been. Ask yourselves, if the law is run by humans, and we know humans don’t protect human’s right. Humans only protect interest in human rights. How can justice be served to everyone when according to us there is no interest in everyone’s right? But, it’s all about perception. Like our God, everyone thinks the way they perceive God is the right way! It may be true according to them. Because, I read an anonymous quote that says, “Everyone creates their own reality. As for me, I just order every fiber of my body to give glory to God for whom and what I am today. Who I am which resulting what I am today is all due to God. Because the LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. He has a heart for those of us who are nothing. He sees our needs, even before we ask for help. He blessed me even before I even knew him! He changes my messes in to messages. My biography in the middle of the book will tangibly prove my statement. You will learn about my existence throughout the book. You’ll see why I am so in love with the Lord! Most of my siblings have been killed. My father has had 19 kids with eight mothers. Only seven of us remain alive. From 19 kids, he has had five with my mother with whom he was married. I was the first one, but the only one remains alive. See my biography for details. When we create something, we humans issue a manual that tells others how to manage it. The Lord gave the manual of life written with his hand. That’s the 10 commandment. The bible is the development of the Ten Commandments according to human perception. The bible is loaded with philosophy. My belief is whatever it is we’re doing, we are either inspired by Holy Spirit, or the devil. We say, “Those who wrote the bible were inspired by God.” The bible talks about the Lord, of course. The authors would have to be inspired by God through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit talks to us, through our perceptions. I’m also inspired by God to write this book, because I’m talking about God. If this book appears to be against the Lord, may he stop it now!

Summary : Tara Jenkins and Justin Westcroft used to be childhood BFFs. Now in high school, Justin’s a popular, all-star athlete, and Tara spends her days admiring him from afar. But when Tara saves Justin from nearly drowning in a freak accident, he’s unable to get her out of his mind. In no time at all, Tara and Justin fall deeply in love. And even though it’s only high school, they seem destined for a happily ever after. Until tragedy strikes—and this time, Justin’s not so lucky. Tara passes through her days as a shell of her former self: Justin’s dead, but she can still feel his presence, and she can’t seem to let him go. But there’s a reason for that, and it’s not just grief: Justin is in between, and he’s still holding on. They say that when someone saves you, you’re tied to them for life. But what about in the afterlife? Praise for The In Between: “The question I keep asking myself is how have I never heard of this book before? How have I not heard of Olivia Pierce before? …keep on writing Olivia Pierce because I’ll be waiting for your next novel, and trust me when I say I will be the first one to buy it!” — My Bookish Things “What I did like about this book was how Pierce manages to get the right balance between realism and fantasy. It combines conventional young adult themes along with themes that are more unusual.” — The Great Catsby
