Practicing Peace in Times of War Book Review:

With war and violence flaring all over the world, many of us are left feeling vulnerable and utterly helpless. In this book Pema Chödrön draws on Buddhist teachings to explore the origins of aggression, hatred, and war, explaining that they lie nowhere but within our own hearts and minds. She goes on to explain that the way in which we as individuals respond to challenges in our everyday lives can either perpetuate a culture of violence or create a new culture of compassion. "War and peace begin in the hearts of individuals," declares Pema Chödrön at the opening of this inspiring and accessible book. She goes on to offer practical techniques any of us can use to work for peace in our own lives, at the level of our habits of thought and action. It's never too late, she tells us, to look within and discover a new way of living and transform not only our personal lives but our whole world.

The Practice of Peace Book Review:

Peace is infinitely more than the cessation of hostilities. And Peacemaking neither starts nor ends at the negotiating table, for the objective is not just a set of treaty terms acceptable to all parties, but rather the renewal of meaningful and productive life for the planet, nations, organizations, and each one of us. The search for peace is critical and universal, and there are approaches available to assist our search ? and they work.

Peace Is a Practice Book Review:

When you breathe in all the grace available to you and release everything that is outside of your control, you'll discover peace that surpasses your circumstances. All it takes is practice. If you feel overwhelmed with anxiety about the future, you're far from alone. For many of us, when we're not worrying about what is to come, we find ourselves wrestling with things from the past. Where does that leave us today? Morgan Harper Nichols has learned the answer to this question. She has examined stories from her own life and the lives of people around the world and noticed a common thread: we all long for peace. We're all seeking light and life. But these things don't happen passively. Peace Is a Practice invites you to become a peacemaker in your own life, starting right where you are, and in some of the most unexpected places. As these words and images inspire you to take daily steps toward peace, you'll uncover the key to: Embracing the beauty of the present Letting go of regret of the past and fear of the future Developing a path toward meaning and authenticity Approaching life's challenges with faith and a calm confidence Feeling peace even in the midst of uncertainty or difficult times In every moment, there is something as deep and boundless as a winding river waiting to be found--a true peace that flows, beckoning you to rest . . . and be still.

All Quiet on the Western Front Book Review:

Considered by many the greatest war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front is Erich Maria Remarque’s masterpiece of the German experience during World War I. I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. . . . This is the testament of Paul Bäumer, who enlists with his classmates in the German army during World War I. They become soldiers with youthful enthusiasm. But the world of duty, culture, and progress they had been taught breaks in pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. Through years of vivid horror, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principle of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against one another . . . if only he can come out of the war alive. “The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review

Peace Is Every Breath Book Review:

“Among Buddhist leaders influential in the West, Thich Nhat Hanh ranks second only to the Dalai Lama.” —New York Times “Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man….

War and Peace Book Review:

Epic historical novel by Leo Tolstoy, originally published as Voyna i mir in 1865-69. This panoramic study of early 19th-century Russian society, noted for its mastery of realistic detail and variety of psychological analysis, is generally regarded as one of the world's greatest novels. War and Peace is primarily concerned with the histories of five aristocratic families--particularly the Bezukhovs, the Bolkonskys, and the Rostovs--the members of which are portrayed against a vivid background of Russian social life during the war against Napoleon (1805-14). The theme of war, however, is subordinate to the story of family existence, which involves Tolstoy's optimistic belief in the life-asserting pattern of human existence. The novel also sets forth a theory of history, concluding that there is a minimum of free choice; all is ruled by an inexorable historical determinism. Includes unique illustrations.

Changing the Course of Destruction Book Review:

Conflicts, wars, catastrophic climate change and poverty are leading to our destruction. We are not evil people. We just "do not know what we do." To change the course of destruction we need to nurture in each one of us a sense of interconnectedness of life on this planet. We need to understand the position of a person we have differences with. Instead of focusing on what they say or how they behave, we need to explore where they are coming from, their frame of reference, the facts they use, the impact of history, the influence of their vested interest and the context of the system they are a part of. We need to learn to listen to each other with loving investment and compassionate exploration. By detaching from from our programming and preconceived positions, we can develop a deeper understanding of each other that brings us closer. This book explores these issues by reviewing catastrophic events in human history, such as the Partition of India, Hitler's Germany and Nine-Eleven. Change Agents, such as community psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers and organizational development consultants; spiritual leaders; academicians; politicians; and CEOs of business organizations and banks may be particularly interested in reading this book. The only way to have peace is to listen to each other. If people are just trying to convince each other, there will be no peace.

Am I an Antisemite Book Review:

Properly, while I endeavor to expound the principles of Christian social justice, I shall also endeavor to show you how these principles can be applied. And just as properly, it will be my hope to bestir you to action-Christian action, American action-for faith without good works is dead. Thus, at the outset, while I am deeply grateful to everyone of you for, the heroic sacrifices you have made, and will make, to keep me on the air over this independent chain of radio stations, may I ask you for one more favor today-the favor of a prayer to the Holy Ghost. I beseech all of you to ask the spirit of understanding to fill me with prudence; and the spirit of fortitude to give me strength and courage to carry on the battle against the hidden powers of darkness-perhaps not quite so hidden today as yesterday. May I also suggest that you will ask your little children who are ignorant of the causes of poverty, wretchedness and exploitation-may I suggest that you ask these innocent children to whisper a prayer for one who fully recognizes how unworthy he is but who fully realizes what a golden opportunity God has given to him to be an instrument for good. You are anxious to know what topics I shall discuss during the insuing year. Roundly speaking, it is my hope that these addresses will be concerned chiefly with Christian social justice. While my ultimate objective is to help more and more men to save their immortal souls, I recognize how difficult it is for man to practice Christian virtue, to live a holy life in peace and contentment, when he and a great group of his fellowmen are denied unjustly an equitable share in the goods and wealth of this world-goods and wealth which our common Father in heaven bestowed upon all men for all men to use and enjoy-goods and wealth, which, alas, have been concentrated in the hands of a few to the detriment of the many because an un-Christian species of social injustice was foisted upon us in the past few centuries and because, as a result of this, an alien philosophy of social injustice, under the name either of Communism or Naziism, is endeavoring to win our allegiance today. Fearlessly, Christian social justice challenges these several systems for the attention and the support, in this instance, of the American public-a public composed of persons who, despite their many faults and shortcomings, will never surrender the heritage of Bethlehem, of Pilate's hall, of Calvary Hill or of the Easter morning sepulchre from whose empty depths there echo and re-echo the immortal words, HI am the Resurrection and the Life." Fortified with these precious heritages it is our hope to carry on a campaign of instruction and inspiration even though we find ourselves opposed by the rugged individualists on the right and by the unchristly radicals on the left. It is our hope to convert a zealous band of followers into a group of active Christians-. Christians who, by the sincerity of their lives and the logic of their doctrines shall win millions of followers who are convinced that there is no way other than Christ's way for saving America and restoring prosperity and peace for all. My friends, at the outset, permit me to clarify the fundamental doctrine of Christian social justice-the doctrine that differentiates it from every other plan of life proposed for man to follow. It is this: Christ came on earth not only to redeem and save individuals but also to establish an absolutely new social order. Recognizing the chaotic condition of society in His own time; aware of the universal slavery practiced virtually by every nation; and conscious of the spiritual darkness which had encompassed every kingdom, empire, republic and tribe, our Saviour well understood that man, left to his natural abilities, was unable to acquire peace and prosperity in this world and save his immortal soul in the hereafter.

Mugan and the Angelic Wars Book Review:

Mugan, an unlikely Hero!! These are perilous times in the beautiful realm of Heaven. His best friend has turned against God and he must make the terrible choice of either choosing his best friend, Lucifer, son of the morning or the Godhead, who he swore to love and protect. He must make this choice and either decision have dire consequences to his relationship between the brother and the Godhead who created him. Mugan is someone we can identify with as he deals with the difficult decisions that we all deal with on a day to day basis. Like Mugan, we all must choose whether we will follow God or our own passions, friends or family.
