The human condition is a strange one at best. Finding ourselves in a world nearly void of any profound natural predators, with the ability to unconditionally love and solve the most complex problems in the most creative ways; we choose to make the world an ever increasingly dangerous place, in stead of creating Utopia. In our relentless pursuit of happiness and perfection, we create the very opposite. The Sleeper Must Awaken dives deep into the human psyche, exploring from the archetypal dreamscapes of our subconscious minds to the remarkable similarities between Super String Theory and ancient mysticism. It opens the door to a journey within ourselves, searching for the root of this phenomenon and presenting possible solutions to a world on the edge. Author Bio Dr. Jean Erasmus is a South African born medical practitioner. Before moving to the United Kingdom, he has worked mostly with less fortunate souls, managing a wide variety of illnesses, ranging from Tuberculosis to HIV/AIDS. He has also been involved in medical legal work as well as lecturing in Primary Health Care. The world of medicine - where cold, evidence-based science intermingles with the warm, complex, emotional and spiritual human being - has sparked an interest in Jean, leading him to pursue the connection between these two diverse poles of the human condition. This pursuit, offset by the dramatically changing physical, social and spiritual landscape of the world, led him into writing this book in an attempt to finding the missing piece of the current human-led world puzzle, and to present possible solutions.
This work by Nancy deClaisse-Walford, Rolf Jacobson, and Beth Tanner is the most complete and detailed one-volume commentary available on the Psalms. Significantly, the volume reflects the combined insights of three superior (younger) biblical scholars. DeClaisse-Walford, Jacobson, and Tanner offer a succinct introduction to the Psalter, a new translation of all the psalms that takes special account of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and individual entries on each psalm unit. Throughout the book they draw on state-of-the-art research on the canonical shape and shaping of the Psalter and evidence a nuanced attention to the poetic nature of the psalms.

The recent economic rise of China and India has attracted a great deal of attention--and justifiably so. Together, the two countries account for one-fifth of the global economy and are projected to represent a full third of the world's income by 2025. Yet, many of the views regarding China and India's market reforms and high growth have been tendentious, exaggerated, or oversimplified. Awakening Giants, Feet of Clay scrutinizes the phenomenal rise of both nations, and demolishes the myths that have accumulated around the economic achievements of these two giants in the last quarter century. Exploring the challenges that both countries must overcome to become true leaders in the international economy, Pranab Bardhan looks beyond short-run macroeconomic issues to examine and compare China and India's major policy changes, political and economic structures, and current general performance. Bardhan investigates the two countries' economic reforms, each nation's pattern and composition of growth, and the problems afflicting their agricultural, industrial, infrastructural, and financial sectors. He considers how these factors affect China and India's poverty, inequality, and environment, how political factors shape each country's pattern of burgeoning capitalism, and how significant poverty reduction in both countries is mainly due to domestic factors--not global integration, as most would believe. He shows how authoritarianism has distorted Chinese development while democratic governance in India has been marred by severe accountability failures. Full of valuable insights, Awakening Giants, Feet of Clay provides a nuanced picture of China and India's complex political economy at a time of startling global reconfiguration and change.
François Laruelle’s lifelong project of “nonphilosophy,” or “nonstandard philosophy,” thinks past the theoretical limits of Western philosophy to realize new relations between religion, science, politics, and art. In Christo-Fiction Laruelle targets the rigid, self-sustaining arguments of metaphysics, rooted in Judaic and Greek thought, and the radical potential of Christ, whose “crossing” disrupts their circular discourse. Laruelle’s Christ is not the authoritative figure conjured by academic theology, the Apostles, or the Catholic Church. He is the embodiment of generic man, founder of a science of humans, and the herald of a gnostic messianism that calls forth an immanent faith. Explicitly inserting quantum science into religion, Laruelle recasts the temporality of the cross, the entombment, and the resurrection, arguing that it is God who is sacrificed on the cross so equals in faith may be born. Positioning itself against orthodox religion and naive atheism alike, Christo-Fiction is a daring, heretical experiment that ties religion to the human experience and the lived world.
