New Book To Enrich Your Life: Path Of The Novice Mystic: Maintaining A Beginner's Heart And Mind, By Dr. Paul Dunion

"Path of the Novice Mystic," by Dr. Paul Dunion

Description: Do we truly recognize what life is about? How do we find true meaning and enrichment? Who are we? What happens when life deals us an unexpected blow? In his insightful new book, "Path of the Novice Mystic: Maintaining a Beginner's Heart and Mind," Dr. Paul Dunion explores these questions and more as he provides a unique look into the world of secular mysticism. He skillfully blends psychology, philosophy and spirituality to guide the reader toward finding peace by accepting the world's inherent uncertainties and approaching life with elevated curiosity and enthusiasm. Dr. Dunion holds that we can respond to life's odyssey and decide who we are by either protesting the trip or accepting it. Protesting life means we define ourselves as either victims or conquerors of life -- both of which place us in an adversarial relationship to life. Whether protesters fall prey to illusions of powerlessness or power, they still live in illusion, understanding neither the journey nor themselves. “This book is intended to inspire the building of a personal philosophy capable of supporting the reader's ability to make peace with the inherent mystery of life," says Dr. Dunion.

Seeing The Life, By Sophie Dawson

Seeing the Life, by Sophie Dawson

Description: Sophie Dawson, award-winning author of Christian historical fiction, presents the life of Jesus -- called by the Hebrew name Yeshua -- from a unique perspective in her fascinating new book, Seeing the Life. Jesus was a flesh-and-blood baby... a child.. a young man, with parents, siblings, and friends. He laughed and he cried, experiencing the same pleasures and challenges that others around him faced. Seeing the Life introduces the characters of Micah and Dassa, a young couple who befriend Joseph and Mary and witness the life of Yeshua, from birth to death and beyond. Micah, Joseph and their families follow the ministries of John the Baptist and Yeshua, the poor carpenter from Nazareth. Yet conflicts abound. Is Yeshua the Messiah who will lead Israel against the Roman army? Is he a fraud, a cohort of Satan? Or is he something else? The crowds cheer him, then want to stone him. They hail his arrival, then cry for his execution. Dawson invites her readers to 'see the life' as those who lived at the same time saw it, considering the social and political issues which shaped the people and ideas, and ultimately shaped how they responded to Yeshua's words and actions.
