Description :


A skilled moral theologian, Benedictine Father Mark O’Keefe leads God-seekers to focus attention on St. John of the Cross’s teaching in The Ascent of Mount Carmel: The essence of the spiritual journey is union with God through the practice of the virtues, especially faith, hope, and love. It‘s virtuous living that enables us to truly love God and be conformed to God in divine union. For St. John, religious “experiences” are not the essence of the spiritual journey at all, nor is asceticism for its own sake. John’s emphasis on the nada is to lead us to liberating emptiness -- authentic human freedom-- that equips us to be filled with the divine life. At the journey’s summit, we find the God who is Love. This book is an insightful companion to The Ascent of Mount Carmel. Ideal for personal and group study, Carmelite formation, college courses, and a must for every library.

Description :


A passionate and deep exploration of how love is essential to our spiritual growth and development, from beloved author and teacher A. H. Almaas. Love is a universal energy--and a primary force that powers our movement toward spiritual illumination. All the ways we need love are simply reflections of our need for spiritual growth. In Love Unveiled, A. H. Almaas explores three dimensions of love: appreciative love--the true liking of somebody or something; merging or connecting love--a force that melts away separateness; and passionate, ecstatic love--capable of consuming us from inside. In their own way, each reveals the beauty and exquisiteness of our spiritual heart, which is the heart of the divine. However, the path of spiritual love is not without challenges. Almaas explores the barriers that tend to block our experience of loving awakening and provides experiential exercises throughout the book to help readers along their path. The exercises focus on the obstacles or misunderstandings that commonly arise for each quality or dimension of love. Presented in the form of writing or monologuing prompts, readers can work independently or in small groups to confront the emotional obstacles on their spiritual path. Regardless of where you are on your path, Love Unveiled will help you explore love in three essential dimensions and gain a deeper connection to yourself.

Description :


"There is a rich tradition of wonderful women and other contemplatives who are great resources for thinking differently about Christianity. They emphasized divine love, human compassion, and the radical possibilities of contemplative practices. They were not afraid to criticize the church and indeed thought of their challenge as crucial to their faith. We do not have to lose faith with the beautiful wisdom of this story of intimate and compassionate love, dwelling among us and within us, if we do not want to." —from the acknowledgments and note to readers To those seeking a more open, progressive approach to Christian faith, the Christian past can sometimes seem like a desert, an empty space devoid of encouragement or example. Yet in the latter years of the Middle Ages a quiet flowering of a more accessible, positive approach to Christian belief took place among a group of female mystics, those who emphasized an immediate, nonhierarchical experience of the divine. In this enlightening volume, Wendy Farley eloquently brings the work of three female mystics—Marguerite Porete, Mechthild of Magdeburg, and Julian of Norwich—into creative conversation with contemporary Christian life and thought. From alternatives to the standard, violent understandings of the atonement, to new forms of contemplation and prayer, these figures offer us relevant insights through a theology centered on God's love and compassion. Farley demonstrates how these women can help to refresh and expand our awareness of the depth of divine love that encompasses all creation and dwells in the cavern of every human heart.

For wives who are starving for real intimacy-and searching for real answers. This isn't a book about sex-though Ruth Buezis offers plenty of suggestions to help you enjoy that with your husband. Instead, it's about transformation. A transformation so radical that it can only come from God. By "getting naked" with readers, Ruth bares her journey of discovering an incredible sex life with her husband of over twenty years built on simple concepts of intimacy and small details of creative intentionality-and invites women into the delights awaiting them in their own marriages. Using the platform of her Awaken Love small group curriculum, she dares to ask the question: Why have we built a chasm between being godly and being sensual? Whether purity messages in the church felt manipulative and set you up for failure, you've experienced past sexual trauma or abuse, or you've allowed yourself to believe lies about your own beauty, Ruth invites you into a community ready for change and deeper intimacy. In doing so, she opens the door for wives to embrace freedom and become truly known in their marriages.

In a stunning cumming-of-age story, Lady Chick Tingle has uniquely captured the essence of growing up as a woman in 21st century America: lonely, unsure of herself, and magically cursed with a dust-inducing vagina. Just when Catherine McGovern, an "asexual" beauty from Boise, thinks her final chances for love and laughter have left her, just as she begins to resign her ambitions for ever knowing the intimate embrace of another's warm, soft skin against hers, she is gifted with an opportunity few Earth mortals have ever received: a trip to Assgard, the mystical land of dildo-headed unicorns. It is there that her true, dormant sexuality awakens ravenously inside of her. Upon meeting the Supreme Empress of Assgard, Equestra, Catherine is madly consumed by lust, a sensation foreign to her and her many days growing up a sexless outcast in the orgy-infested suburbs of Idaho. This erotic saga is 38 pages of spicy human on lesbian dildo-headed unicorn action.

Description :


St. Teresa of Ávila and St. John of the Cross are among the greatest teachers of prayer in the Christian tradition. For nearly five centuries, their writings on the spiritual life have guided those seeking greater union with God. Beyond the written corpus of these saints, the lived experiences of these reformers of the Carmelite Order also draws fascination. Living in sixteenth-century Spain among kings, prelates, explorers, inquisitors, and reformers, these two saints were formed and sanctified by the context and circumstances of their historical time and place. In Context: Teresa of Ávila, John of the Cross, and Their World explores the social, cultural, intellectual, and religious themes that prevailed during the time in which St. Teresa of Ávila and St. John of the Cross lived and breathed. This book is not only a thematic overview but also visits particular situations in the lives of these saints: the events that shaped their writings, their lives, and the Carmelite Reform they initiated. Offering for the first time in English a comprehensive contextual overview of the Carmelite reformers, Father O’Keefe draws upon pivotal scholarly sources not available to many beginner-to-intermediate students of spirituality. The extensive bibliographies point readers toward the next steps in diving deeper into Carmelite studies. Also including: + A fully linked comprehensive index + 16 pages of color photos. This book is an excellent resource for any earnest student of St. Teresa of Ávila and St. John of the Cross.

Twenty-one-year-old Katie Detweiler loves to bake. When she’s hired at a local bed-and-breakfast to do just that, she’s excited, especially because the owner promises the shy young woman that she won’t have to leave the kitchen. But when her boss’s husband requires round-the-clock care, Katie is forced to wait on customers, too.

His plan is to hide from a girl he no longer cares about—and more. Uncomfortable sharing his past and afraid of the consequences, he buries his troubles deep inside. When he meets Katie Detweiler, he is immediately attracted, but his pursuit of her is complicated by a past mistake he can’t undo. As Katie wrestles with questions of identity, she also struggles to navigate her blossoming romance with Abram, in the face of opposition from a jealous friend. As their relationship becomes more serious, Abram realizes that he must come clean about his past—even if doing so will require him to keep his distance from Katie, for her own protection. It soon becomes clear that only the hand of God can bind them together for good.
