After the best-seller The End is My Beginning, co-authored with his father Tixiano Terzani, the long-awaited Folco Terzani's comeback with a spiritual fable of nature, men and God.This spiritual fable intends to make us reflect on our own life, the things we put our security in, the values we live by, the dreams we have set aside as wishful thinking. It makes us look at the community around us, the connections we have. Through the life of a dog who's left on the side of the road, abandoned by his owner. He then comes across a wolf, that tells him to go on a journey to find his true identity and who his creator really is. He then meets a pack of wolves, where he learns about their ways, there values through the individual characters, who are also on a journey to discover their creator. This is a parable that encourages mindfulness, purpose and spiritual searching and spiritual formation.
Why have Western societies that were once overwhelmingly Christian become so secular? Looking to the feelings and faith of ordinary people, the award-winning author of Protestants Alec Ryrie offers a bold new history of atheism.We think we know the history of faith: how the ratio of Christian believers has declined and a secular age dawned. In this startlingly original history, Alex Ryrie puts faith in the dock to explore how religious belief didn't just fade away. Rather, atheism bloomed as a belief system in its own right.Unbelievers looks back to the middle ages when it seemed impossible not to subscribe to Christianity, through the crisis of the Reformation and to the powerful, challenging cultural currents of the centuries since. As this history shows, the religious journey of the Western world was lived and steered not just by published philosophy and the celebrated thinkers of the day - the Machiavellis and Michel de Montaignes - but by men and women at every level of society. Their voices and feelings permeate this book in the form of diaries, letters and court records.Tracing the roots of atheism, Ryrie shows that our emotional responses to the times can lead faith to wax and wane: anger at a corrupt priest or anxiety in a turbulent moment spark religious doubt as powerfully as any intellectual revolution. With Christianity under contest and ethical redefinitions becoming more and more significant, Unbelievers shows that to understand how something as intuitive as belief is shaped over time, we must look to an emotional history - one with potent lessons for our still angry and anxious age.
Hvordan blev alting til? Hvorfra kommer stjernerne, jorden og livet? Og hvorfor findes der død og ondskab i verden? Første Mosebog – ”Begyndelsen” – rummer Bibelens svar på, hvorfor verden ser ud, som den gør, og hvorfor et menneskeliv er både hårdt og smukt. I begyndelsen, hører vi, skabte Gud himlen, jorden og menneskene. Adam og Eva levede i Edens Have, tæt på Gud. Men da de gør det eneste, Gud har forbudt dem, jager han dem ud af haven til et liv, hvor overlevelse er en kamp. Senere udvælger Gud, blandt alle verdens folk, Abraham og hans familie og indgår en aftale med dem. Han vil være deres Gud – hvis bare de vil følge ham. ”Bibelen 2020” er Bibelen i en nudansk oversættelse, hvor flow og forståelse er i fokus. Den er oversat fra grundsprogene og præsenteres nu på lyd – udgivet i de 66 bøger, der tilsammen udgør Bibelen.

Matthæusevangeliet – ”Elsk jeres fjender” – er det første skrift i Det Nye Testamente. Det fortæller historien om et usædvanligt barn: På én gang var Jesus efterkommer af den berømte kong David og Guds egen søn. Som voksen chokerer han ved at fortælle jøderne, hvordan man i virkeligheden skal forstå den lov, som Gud engang gav Moses. For er det nok at elske dem, man i forvejen hører sammen med, hvis man vil leve, som Gud vil have det? ”Elsk jeres fjender,” siger Jesus i en berømt tale, som kan høres i første del af Matthæusevangeliet. Og fjender får han nok af. Både politiske og religiøse kræfter vil have ham af vejen. Jesus bliver henrettet på et kors, hører vi, men efter tre dage i graven sker noget ufatteligt.”Bibelen 2020” er Bibelen i en nudansk oversættelse, hvor flow og forståelse er i fokus.

Does self-knowledge come through searching? - 16 July 1949 • What is it that most of us are seeking? • Does clarity come through searching and trying to find out what others say? • Can incessant search and longing give you the extraordinary sense of reality or creative being that comes when you really understand yourself? • Without knowing your background and the substance of your thought, where it comes from, surely your search is utterly futile and your action has no meaning. • The responsibility for any action depends on ourselves, not on others. • Q: Do I have to be at any special level of consciousness to understand you? • Q: The movement of life is experienced in relationship to people and to ideas?J. KRISHNAMURTI (Jiddu Krishnamurti) (May 12, 1895–February 17, 1986) was a world renowned writer and speaker on philosophical and spiritual subjects. His subject matter included: the purpose of meditation, human relationships, the nature of the mind, and how to enact positive change in global society. Krishnamurti was born into a Telugu Brahmin family in what was then colonial India. In early adolescence, he had a chance encounter with prominent occultist and high-ranking theosophist C.W. Leadbeater in the grounds of the Theosophical Society headquarters at Adyar in Madras (now Chennai). He was subsequently raised under the tutelage of Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater, leaders of the Society at the time, who believed him to be a "vehicle" for an expected World Teacher. As a young man, he disavowed this idea and dissolved the world-wide organization (the Order of the Star) established to support it. He claimed allegiance to no nationality, caste, religion, or philosophy, and spent the rest of his life traveling the world as an individual speaker, speaking to large and small groups, as well as with interested individuals. He authored a number of books, among them The First and Last Freedom, The Only Revolution, and Krishnamurti's Notebook. :" In addition, a large collection of his talks and discussions have been published. At age 90, he addressed the United Nations on the subject of peace and awareness, and was awarded the 1984 UN Peace Medal. His last public talk was in Madras, India, in January 1986, a month before his death at home in Ojai, California. His supporters, working through several non-profit foundations, oversee a number of independent schools centered on his views on education – in India, England and the United States – and continue to transcribe and distribute many of his thousands of talks, group and individual discussions, and other writings, publishing them in a variety of formats including print, audio, video and digital formats as well as online, in many languages.
