The Healing of America

By Marianne Williamson

Simon & Schuster, 1997. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. From the book, ""We can no longer expect--or wait for--either major political party to adequately address the casual level of America's pain. We will reap what we sow, collectively as well as individually, and if God is watching any of us then He is watching all of us. The morally concerned American must now take an active stand in turning America away from its current identity as a nation obsessively in love with its money to a nation more seriously invested in all of its children and the potential brilliance of every American. According to Williamson, we need a new paradigm of political understanding, a moral commitment to express it, and a new kind of activism to bring it forth. 'The Healing of America' is a blueprint for all three."" Hard cover in fine condition. Text block clean and tight. No markings noted. Dust Jacket in fine condition. First Edition per number line.

By Samuel G. Freedman

Touchstone, 2000. Soft cover. Very Good. From the book, ""Samuel G. Freedman illuminates the forces that have undermined the traditional peaceful coexistence among the Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, and Reconstructionist branches, and secular and unaffiliated Jews. Examining recent headline-making stories as well as less publicized controversies, Freedman discusses the vitriolic battles that have arisen over intermarriage, standards of conversion, the role of women in religious ritual, the Middle East peace process, and the secular influence on religious life. As he weighs the arguments of both extremes, Freedman comes to the controversial conclusion that the Jewish-American community is headed for a Reformation, a permanent fracture of one faith into many.""

By Yogavacara Rahula

Printed by he Public Trustee of Sri Lanka, 1985. Soft cover. Good.

This first part is characterized by following the crowd, self-centredness and living out my fantasies. The second part traces the beginning of a conscious search for self-understanding and Truth--the journey of gradual spiritual awakening, characterized by intense introspection and struggling against the ego's old habits; it ends with my ordination as a novice monk in Sri Lanka.""

An Inquiry Into the Existence of Guardian Angels: A Journalist's Investigative Report

By Pierre Jovanovic

M. Evans & Company, 1995. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Good. From the book, ""Pierre told me that his interest began when he encountered a seemingly unexplainable phenomenon; and as a reporter--a digger for facts--he felt he had to arrive at a true answer. He had been saved by death or at least be serious injury by literally being pushed by an unseen force out of the way of a bullet speeding at him. Was it real? he asked himself. Was it his imagination? Was it coincidence? So almost reluctantly Pierre found himself drawn deeper into the investigation of this phenomenon. Pierre told me that he concluded after all his research that angels are real, very powerful and often very funny. It is my firm belief that no one will be able to read this book without being moved--and changed--in some fundamental way."" Soft cover in good condition. Text block clean and tight.

By Chaim Stern

Central Conference of American Rabbis, 1978. Hardcover. Fine. From the book, ""Gates pf Repentance replaces The Union Prayerbook, Part II, which was last revised in 1945. It owes much to that volume, more to Gate of Repentance (London, 1973), and most to the traditional Machzor, the pattern upon which all modern liturgies for the days of Awe are fashioned. We have, in addition, drawn liberally from Gates of Prayer, because the Holyday services have always been built upon the weekday and Shabbat liturgy. Finally, we have included many new prayers and meditations, because faith and aspiration live on in the House of Israel."" This book has a maroon leatherette hard cover in fine condition with gold lettering on both front and back covers and along spine. Text block clean and tight. There is a Temple stamp inside front and back covers. No other markings noted.

From the book, ""On October 27, 1985, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, newspaper publisher and columnist, Wayne Weible, first learned of the phenomenon occurring in the little town with the unpronounceable name. Sensing that there might be material for his column, he decided to pursue the story. Already he had a tie-in in mind that would be perfect for the season: ""As we prepare to celebrate the miracle of Christman, a modern-day miracle may be taking place in an obscure village in Yugoslavia."" The following evening, reviewing a videotape documentary of the events at Medjugorje, he realized that there was far more to it than one column. As it turned out, there were eight, and as requests poured in for reprints, to cut down on copying and postage costs he reproduced them in tabloid form. Now, he has written a book about Medjugorje--the first from a Protestant perspective. It may be the most penetrating from any perspective."" Soft cover in very good condition.
