There are two things good and that which must become good. Humanity does not understand this. Reality and pseudoreality. There is God, and there is man. If a man seeks truth, he must be eligible for the reception of truth. Mankind does not know this. Consequently, believing in the existence of truth, he assumes he is therefore able to perceive it. This is not in accordance with experience in our religions, but it continues to be believed, particularly by the four thousand religions on the earth that we follow blindly. The science of effecting a bridge between the inner and outer man has been rare, and for the most part forgotten, inevitably there are those that think their religion stands them in good stead and accept the truth of these lesser experiences and rituals when they worship. They are wrong. Gods heart lies only with the Sufis. A man cut down a tree one day. A Sufi who saw this taking place said, Look at this fresh branch, which is full of sap, happy because it does not yet know it has been cut off and ignorant of the damage that it has suffered. But it will know in due time. Meanwhile you cannot reason with it. This severance, this ignorancethese are the states of the leaders of religion, worshiping the ceremonies rather than God.

The story—both romantic and terrifying?of how a handful of men, armed with nothing more than handguns and guts, forced the greatest nation in the world from their shores. On Easter Monday, April 24, 1916, the first great revolution of the twentieth century began as working-class men and women occupied buildings throughout Dublin, Ireland, including the general post office on O’Connell Street. Among the commoners in the GPO was a young staff captain of the Irish Volunteers named Michael Collins. He was joined a day later by a fourteen-year-old messenger boy, Eoin Kavanagh. Four days later they would all surrender, but they had struck the match that would burn Great Britain out of Ireland for the first time in seven hundred years. The 13th Apostle is the reimagined story of how Michael Collins, along with his young acolyte Eoin, transformed Ireland from a colony into a nation. Collins’s secret weapon was his intelligence system and his assassination squad, nicknamed ?The Twelve Apostles.” On November 21, 1920, the squad?with its thirteenth member, young Eoin?assassinated the entire British Secret Service in Dublin. Twelve months and sixteen days later, Collins signed the Treaty at 10 Downing Street, which brought into being what is, today, the Republic of Ireland. An epic novel in the tradition of Thomas Flanagan’s The Year of the French and Leon Uris’s Trinity, The 13th Apostle is a story that will capture the imagination and hearts of freedom-loving readers everywhere.

A prominent Swiss banker in Palm Beach finds his wife murdered and suspects a secret military operation. His determination to find out who is behind the killing throws the Swiss diplomatic and military establishment into panic. He has the knowledge to expose the biggest secret of all how the gold and artifacts stolen from Jews and deposited in secret bank accounts during WWII became the foundation for a worldwide investment scheme that became the pillar of the Swiss economic miracle. Max Hooker becomes involved in the case when the murder takes place at his door step. He stumbles on to a covert military operation and a mysterious "13th Apostle". Max has to gain the confidence of a surviving Nazi organization as his search takes him to Germany, Paraguay and finally to Switzerland. His possession of secret bank records and the coinciding US Government negotiation with the Swiss banks on behalf of the surviving Holocaust victims allows him to recover some of the stolen loot. Max finds out who the real "13th Apostle" is and closes the circle of a dark human tragedy that originated in the last days of WWII and came to a close when the secret is revealed.

Die Zukunft Gottes

Eine praktische Annäherung an die Spiritualität für unsere Zeit

Kann Gott in einem skeptischen Zeitalter wiederbelebt werden? Was wäre nötig, um den Menschen ein spirituelles Leben zu geben, kraftvoller als alles, was es in der Vergangenheit je gab? Deepak Chopra greift diese Fragen mit Eloquenz und Tiefe in seinem neuen Buch auf. Sein überzeugender Rat: Gott an der Quelle des menschlichen Bewusstseins zu suchen. Er findet sich in jedem von uns selbst und mit ihm auch die Kraft, das eigene Leben zu verwandeln. Gott ist in Schwierigkeiten. Mit dem Aufstieg des militanten Atheismus, einer aggressiv-polemischen Bewegung angeführt von Richard Dawkins, haben viele Menschen resigniert und sich der Idee gebeugt, dass Gott ein überholter Mythos in der modernen Welt sei. Die Argumente scheinen zu stark. Doch tief in sich spüren sie eine andere Wahrheit und die unerschütterliche Sehnsucht nach höherem Sinn, nach einer Gegenwart Gottes. Deepak Chopra widerspricht den Argumenten jener atheistischen Bewegung mit Kompetenz und Leidenschaft. Vielmehr sieht er im Hier und Jetzt die perfekte Zeit für eine neue Spiritualität, die vor allem eines sein sollte: verlässliche Erkenntnis einer höheren Wirklichkeit. Indem er einen Weg zu Gott skizziert, der den Unglauben zu einem ersten Schritt des Erwachens macht, zeigt Chopra uns, dass die Krise des Glaubens wie Feuer ist, durch das wir hindurch müssen auf dem Weg zur Kraft, Wahrheit und Liebe. Auch in der Wissenschaft haben sich längst Dogmen etabliert, an denen zu rütteln das Ende der eigenen Karriere bedeuten kann. "Doch im Gegensatz zu religiösen Fundamentalisten sind sich wissenschaftliche Ideologen nicht bewusst, dass ihre Weltsicht allein auf Glauben basiert. Sie meinen, sie kennen die Wahrheit. Sie glauben, die Wissenschaft habe die wesentlichen Fragen bereits gelöst." So hat Szientismus die schädliche Wirkung, jede Art von Denken und Forschung zu unterdrücken, die nicht den etablierten Richtlinien entspricht. "Der Glaube muss zum Wohle aller bewahrt werden", schreibt Chopra.

In 4 BC, two babies were born beneath a brilliant star that shone down on the town of Bethlehem. The brilliance of the star was taken as a sign from God. Both were destined to survive the purge of Bethlehem. One child was Jesus of Nazareth, whose Jewish parents fled with their newborn son to Egypt in order to save his life. The second child was Marcus Titus. He was the son of a Jewish woman and Roman man. Knowing that their son faced certain death, they hid Marcus among some rocks on a hillside just beyond Bethlehem. There, he was found by Roman soldiers and sent to Rome to be raised as a Roman citizen. This is the story of two star-crossed lives. One life has been written about extensively, its history retold for multiple generations. The other life has remained a mystery except to a very few for an equal number of generations. Yet both are intimately connected to the Christian faith. Chosen by Jesus of Nazareth to write the history of his life and ministry, Marcus Titus wrote three gospels, two of which are contained in the New Testament. This is a story based upon fact, inspiration, and speculation about the one referred to in the New Testament as “the other disciple.” Within this story are lessons that provide the foundation for life.

Paul, Apostle of Weakness

Astheneia and Its Cognates in the Pauline Literature, Revised Edition

In this practical book every occurrence of astheneia and its cognates in the Pauline Epistles is examined, both in its immediate context and in its relation to Pauline thought as a whole. The analysis begins, first, by examining both secular and Septuagintal Greek usages of astheneia as well as its usage in the non-Pauline New Testament writings. It then proceeds, secondly, by defining Paul's astheneia termini from letter to letter and context to context. All the passages in the Pauline literature where the words appear undergo a detailed exegetical examination. The Pauline weakness motif is then summarized, with the conclusion that the concept of weakness is foundational to Paul's anthropology, Christology, and ethics.
