  • Want Not And Be Open To Receive

    $12.99

    Within these pages lies wisdom, knowledge, and freedom. It is yours for the taking. It doesn’t matter which journey or beliefs you have chosen. If you’re searching, or have developed an expanded/Christ consciousness, or have learned to apply Universal Laws, these teachings can bring and enhance clarity. The hidden dangers include the Nuances and Energies that surround Cosmic, Universal, Spiritual, and Natural Laws. They influence everything in our lives. From the unmanifest to the manifest, unconscious to the conscious, many people unwittingly continue to create what they do not desire, then wonder why life seems to be a struggle. Nuances are subtle, but very apparent when checks and balances are applied to the governing laws. Christ was emblematic of these teachings. Personal power is to actively create a destiny by design without friction. Applying the steps and concepts found within this book can change your world. Our world.

    Interlude 5: Happiness, Love, And The Divine

    Additional Info
    Can science explain powerful human emotions such as love and happiness? Or, are these emotions something more than the action of biochemicals and electrical impulses? Science is constantly uncovering the mysteries of our nature, but we are uneasy about submitting our most intimate feelings to its scrutiny. Religion tells us that God is love but neuroscience counters with love as a well-timed trickle of transmitters and hormones. In the 21st century, is it necessary to discard our traditional beliefs of a loving God in favor of dopamine? With doctorates in both mathematics and theology, Kevin Sharpe explores these notions and asks the question, Has Science Displaced the Soul?

    Unflinching in facing these issues, Sharpe provides a clear and current summary of the discoveries of science and what our spiritual traditions still have to offer in the ongoing effort to understand our deepest urges. He confronts serious unanswered questions. How can the Divine direct a random process like evolution? How can we reconcile the big bang with creation out of nothing? Does it make sense to claim that the non-biological Divine shares in human purposes and desires? Sharpe’s solution is controversial since it requires that we demolish and reconstruct some of our most trusted conceptions. By examining the ways in which scientific and religious claims can be harmonized, he offers a radical and powerful interpretation of love and happiness in the divine context.

  • Millionaire Mind

    $21.99

    After its first publication, Dr. Thomas J. Stanley’s second best-seller The Millionaire Mind spent over four months on the New York Times best-seller list, rising to position #2, and has sold over half a million copies. Here is the first paperback edition of Stanley’s second groundbreaking study of America’s wealthy. The Millionaire Mind targets a population of millionaires who have accumulated substantial wealth and live in ways that openly demonstrate their affluence. Exploring the ideas, beliefs, and behaviors that enabled these millionaires to build and maintain their fortunes, Dr. Stanley provides a fascinating look at who America’s financial elite are and how they got there. What were their school days like? How did they respond to negative criticism? What are the characteristics of the millionaire’s spouse? Is religion an important part of their lives? The author uncovers the surprising answers to these and similar questions, showing readers through concrete examples just what it is that makes the wealthy prosper when others would turn away dejected or beaten. The Millionaire Mind promises to be as transformational as Dr. Stanley’s previous best-seller. This book answers universal questions with solid statistical evidence in an approachable and anecdotal style. The number of copies sold of this soon-to-be-classic will surely be in the millions.

  • My Bible Says The Darndest Things

    $34.99

    Listening to the Bible is exponentially more powerful than reading it. You pick up on fascinating, curious, and alarming things you miss when you read it: The serpent in Eden told the truth; Cain married a wife and built a city with a global population of only three people; women are sexual predators; disabled people desecrated God’s temple; the earth went into a counter revolution; God approved polygamy, and recommended slavery; a runaway slave got converted to Christianity and was promptly sent back to his slave master; the soon and imminent coming of Jesus is 2000 years over due! As the author listened to his Bible and compared what he heard with what is deemed appropriate, reasonable, and civilized in this modern era, he could not help but conclude that his Bible does say the darndest things.
