In einer Phase von Selbstzweifeln und Depression gerät Emmanuel Carrère in eine Krise des Unglaubens. Er wendet sich dem Christentum zu und versucht, sich zum Glauben zu überzeugen. Nach einer Zeit der intensiven Auseinandersetzung mit den Ursprüngen des Christentums und dem Versuch, konsequent den christlichen Idealen zu folgen, gerät er in eine zweite Krise, eine Krise des Glaubens. In radikaler Ehrlichkeit stellt sich der vernunft- und psychoanalysegeprägte Pariser Intellektuelle der Gretchenfrage und der eigenen Tradition : Was bedeutet uns der Glaube, was uns persönlich und was unserer Gesellschaft ? Um dieser Frage auf den Grund zu gehen, vertieft er sich in die Anfänge des Christentums, er findet Identifikationsfiguren in Paulus, dem Revolutionär, Lukas, dem Intellektuellen und fragt nach der Kraft, mit der es ihnen gelang, etwas zu glauben, was niemand sonst glaubte und eine so machtvolle Tradition zu begründen. Er bringt diese überaus fesselnde frühe Geschichte des Christentums, voll politischer und gesellschaftlicher Unruhen und Intrigen, dem Leser so nahe, dass dieser unmittelbar herausgefordert wird, sein eigenes Verhältnis zur Tradition und zum Glauben zu hinterfragen. Carrère gelingt es in diesem einzigartigen und brisanten Buch, seine eigene Lebens- und Glaubensgeschichte mit der historischen Handlung zu verweben und den Leser mit den unendlichen Facetten des Glaubens und Nichtglaubens zu konfrontieren. Ob ablehnend oder bejahend : An den Fragen des Glaubens kommt heute niemand vorbei.

Can unselfish love save the world? How can we accumulate the essential blessings of a happy life? What emotions must we abandon-and which should we embrace-to find joy? Such conundrums were ever on the mind of James Allen, one of the most popular writers in the fields of inspiration and spirituality at the turn of the 20th century. In this crisp, cheerful little book, he explores the possibilities of contentment and comfort the answers bring. A classic of spiritual succor, first published in 1908, this is as vital and as necessary a work as it was a century ago. British author and pop philosopher JAMES ALLEN (1864-1912) retired from the business world to pursue a life of writing and contemplation. Best known for As a Man Thinketh, he authored many other books about the power of thought including The Path to Prosperity, The Mastery of Destiny, and Byways of Blessedness.

The truth of life well lived is simple; it always has been. Throughout humankind's history, the Father/Mother God's guiding light has shone through a band of humble yet powerful brothers and sisters, masters all. The Great Brother-/Sisterhood of Light has shone the light of its love throughout the world during all of its evolution. Most of its loving membership has remained beyond the shadowy veil of human consciousness, but here and there, its presence has been felt directly on the Earth plane. Usually hidden away from the chaos and darkness of the world's busy highways and byways, the masters have remained anonymous to all but a few worthy souls who have dedicated themselves selflessly to the laws of love and truth, and have served humanity humbly in a thousand different ways throughout history. These are the disciples of the masters, souls who act as instruments stepping down the powerful frequencies of pure love into digestible portions that humanity can use to brighten its way along the journey home to the Christ consciousness. One such soul is Edith Bruce. This little book, spiritually rich in wisdom and timely in terms of current world changes, has been assembled from a series of channeled readings given through the Reverend Edith Bruce by the Great Brother-/Sisterhood of Light. These readings were then reconstructed in such a manner as to provide continuity.

This novel of murder and its aftermath in a small Vermont town in the 1950s is “reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird . . . Absorbing” (The New York Times). In Kingdom County, Vermont, the town’s new Presbyterian minister is a black man, an unsettling fact for some of the locals. When a French-Canadian woman takes refuge in his parsonage—and is subsequently murdered—suspicion immediately falls on the clergyman. While his thirteen-year-old son struggles in the shadow of the town’s accusations, and his older son, a lawyer, fights to defend him, a father finds himself on trial more for who he is than for what he might have done. “Set in northern Vermont in 1952, Mosher’s tale of racism and murder is powerful, viscerally affecting and totally contemporary in its exposure of deep-seated prejudice and intolerance . . . [A] big, old-fashioned novel.” —Publishers Weekly “A real mystery in the best and truest sense.”—Lee Smith, The New York Times Book Review A Winner of the New England Book Award

This book presents a comprehensive history of the Late Bronze Age kingdom of the Hittites, and the role it played within the context of the ancient Near Eastern world. From their capital, Hattusa, in central Anatolia, the Hittite kings ruled a vast network of subject territories and vassalstates reaching from the Aegean coast of Anatolia through Syria to the river Euphrates. In the fourteenth century BC the Hittites became the supreme political and military power in the Near East. How did they achieve their supremacy? How successful were they in maintaining it? What brought abouttheir collapse and disappearance? In seeking to answer these questions, the book begins with an account of the Hittites predecessors in Anatolia, particularly in the early centuries of the second millennium, traces the rise and development of the Hittite kingdom over a period of some five hundredyears, and ends with the events which followed in the wake of the kingdoms collapse. Translations from the original texts are a particular feature of the book; thus on many issues the Hittites and their contemporaries are allowed to speak to the modern reader for themselves.

Publisher: Penguin UK
'The Kingdom, already a huge bestseller in France, is thrilling, magnificent and strange' Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times 'An utterly brilliant book' Catherine Nixey, The Times The sensational international bestseller from one of France's most fêted writers - an epic novel telling the story of Christianity as it has never been told before, and one man's crisis of faith. Corinth, ancient Greece, two thousand years ago. An itinerant preacher, poor, wracked by illness, tells the story of a prophet who was crucified in Judea, who came back from the dead, and whose return is a sign of something enormous. Like a contagion, the story will spread over the city, the country and, eventually, the world. Emmanuel Carrère's astonishing historical epic tells the story of the mysterious beginnings of Christianity, bringing to life a distant, primeval past of strange sects, apocalyptic beliefs and political turmoil. In doing so Carrère, once himself a fervent believer, questions his own faith, asks why we believe in resurrection, and what it means. The Kingdom is his masterpiece.

Being the Substance of Observations Made During a Mission to that Country, in the Year 1793

Author: Michael Tisserand
"An important book for anyone with an interest in life, American music, Southern culture, dancing, accordions, the recording industry, folklore, old dance clubs in the weeds, fortune tellers, hoodoos or shotguns.” ?Annie Proulx There’s a musical kingdom in the American South that’s not marked on any map. Stretching from the prairies of Louisiana to the oil towns of East Texas, it is ruled over accordion-squeezing, washboard-wielding musicians such as Buckwheat Zydeco, Nathan Williams, Keith Frank, Terrance Simien, Rosie Ledet, and C. J. Chenier. Theirs is the kingdom of zydeco. With its African-Caribbean rhythms, Creole-French-English lyrics, and lively dance styles, zydeco has spread from its origins in Louisiana across the nation, from Back Bay to the Bay Area. It has influenced the music of Eric Clapton and Paul Simon and been played at Carnegie Hall. In this remarkable and engrossing book, Michael Tisserand reveals why zydeco’s identifiable and unforgettable blend of blues and Cajun influences has made the dance music of Louisiana black Creoles so popular and widespread. Zydeco’s appeal runs deeper than the feel-good, get-up-and-dance reaction it invariably elicits and is intertwined in the music’s roots and rhythms, handed down from generation to generation. Here is the story of zydeco music. Tisserand goes on the zydeco trail to meet the major artists; he reconstructs the legends behind the music’s beginnings, offering complete biographies of pioneers such as Amédé Ardoin and Clifton Chenier; and he takes you into the dance halls and onto the front porches where zydeco was born and continues to thrive. More than a book on a musical style, The Kingdom of Zydeco is an exploration and a celebration of a distinctive American culture.
