Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, which fly in the face of the laws of physics, intrude upon all aspects of aviation around the globe. These conundrums seem like tangible proof that the universe is a much stranger place than humanity, with its ‘consensus reality’, is willing to accept. Among the cases discussed by the authors, one particular event was instrumental in directing their research into aerial phenomena: the mysterious demise of an Aer Lingus airliner close to Tuskar Rock. This case suggested to them that paranormal events were at work in the fatal incident. Other cases explored indicate that the unexplained is more prevalent than anyone has dared to imagine. From bizarre time and spatial displacements, to unknown aerial craft firing beams and interfering with nuclear missiles, this book’s contents will ensure that no one will ever look at the sky in quite the same way again.

Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) preached a message of reverence for life - all life - that touched the hearts of a generation. As a medical doctor in French Equatorial Africa who selflessly helped those in need, Schweitzer was recognized with the Nobel Peace Prize in the wake of two world wars. But less than fifty years since the time of his death, the great humanitarian and scholar has faded from public awareness. In The New Rationalism, David Goodin explores the underlying philosophy behind Schweitzer's ethic of compassion, presenting it as a response to contemporary questions in social justice, economic equality, and environmental action. For the first time, the political, sociological, and philosophical contexts supporting the development of Schweitzer's ethic are examined in order to bring his timeless message of elemental morality to new life for the modern world. Inspired by Arthur Schopenhauer and Friedrich Nietzsche, Schweitzer built his ethic to create an elemental nature philosophy compatible with empirical science, and to support a new ontological understanding of the human person - a project he termed the New Rationalism. Goodin recovers and analyzes Schweitzer's arguments and shows where his theories can provide a framework for both environmental and civic ethics today.
Things seem to be happening very quickly. Some things were secrets. And I knew these secrets would never be appropriate, for any conversation, in any lifetime. However, it was my reality. Was anything good going to come out of this? There was too much to tell, and no one would understand. I didn't even understand-so how could anyone else? It seemed improbable that I would get what was inside, out of me. It wasn't how I was raised to discuss this negativity . . . to "air out one's dirty laundry," it just wasn't accepted. Was it all my fault? These vulgar and unprecedented events that were beginning to destroy me. I decided to block it out, keep it inside and keep moving with my life. Trying, waiting for the day I would get past it and walk through the door of the other side. The other side of all this madness. In the meantime, I had to do something with my emotions, my secrets and my feelings. They were locked up, tighter than tight. I began to write in journals. Entries that were poems and anecdotal stories of what was happening in my life. I had to become my own inspiration. I had to somehow get what was inside...out. A young girl's life filled with devastation, tragedy and self-destruction was all on its way. It was already here! Still maintaining a happy, ambitious life but harboring guilt, anger and resentment. And dealing with the world and its own evolving. This is the story of over ten years of writings, from the ages of 14-26 years. Someone leading themselves out of the dark and into the light. This was my way and this is my story. My story . . . in poetry.
Reverence for Life—Albert Schweitzer’s pivotal philosophy Musician, physician, humanitarian, and philosopher, Albert Schweitzer was a twentieth-century Renaissance man who won the Nobel Peace Prize for his “Reverence for Life” philosophy. The Wisdom of Albert Schweitzer explores this core philosophy, which inspired one of the world’s great humanitarians. While traveling in Africa, Schweitzer recognized that all living creatures have a will to live and believed that through a “reverence for life” mankind had an ethical imperative to aid in the welfare of all living things, including the environment. His words have remained an inspiration for generations of humanitarians and environmentalists.
This book is for all who hunger for intimacy with God. God in his love has opened his heart through the message and actions of Jesus, and Jesus has revealed God's loving plan to us. This gift of intimacy is meant to enrich us and to be the cause of our joy. Joy is Jesus' intention for all, for he says that he has spoken to us so that our joy may be full (John 15: 11). This book invites us to gaze into God's open heart, and prayerfully reflect on the joy that comes from welcoming all that Jesus has revealed. Not only the words of Jesus, but all the words of Scripture reveal what is in God's heart. We can find a multitude of ways to joy through the personal application of the message of the Bible to our lives. This book uses the term "101 ways to joy" to emphasize this idea. If we pay attention to our lives in the light of what Scripture tells us, we come to notice an overflowing sense of peaceful delight growing within ourselves. The 101 ways to joy are embedded in Jesus' life, words and actions, and in the words and actions of the Bible as a whole. Joy is God's gift to those who seek to understand these words and actions, and to live by them. Since many of us are very busy people, each of the book's 101 ways to joy can be read in just a few short minutes. This allows time for reflection that enables readers to make the ideas a part of their lives. The book is meant to light a warm, gentle fire in the hearts of all who read and reflect on it.
This book is an astute observation by a lay person, not in the medical fi eld, as well as not in the professional clinical psychology fi eld. The author is a clergyman. He was raised in the atmosphere of a household where serious identifi cation problems existed. The author became acclimated to this household environment, and actually found it to be pleasant. He now remembers it as the wonderful days of childhood back on the family farm. As a result, there has developed, a tolerance of people who have acute I D problems, as well as a savvy, and a God given discernment capability. People who have I D as well as other psychological problems feel drawn to this author. The author makes no claim to holding any applicable credential as a professional, in some of the fi elds of interest presented by this book. He claims no medical knowledge more than common knowledge, nor professional psychology knowledge beyond common knowledge. He has done his research as a writer, and defers to professionals. Nothing is intended to suggest that this book is about the practice of medicine by the author, nor any credentialed psychological service by the author. This book is the author’s autobiography, and is intended to be a documentary of a lay persons observations. I do hope that some professional experts can fi nd these observations helpful to their cause.

Because of this, you are one who can join Jesus in the work He began and continues to do in the earth today.

You will be excited and relieved to discover that God gave you this spiritual awareness to develop spiritual maturity-yours and others.

The Green Halo is a highly readable introduction to the vast field of contemporary ecological thought. It is a basic education in environmental philosophy and a welcome propadeutic for understanding the most crucial problem facing humankind in the coming century: How can humans live on this earth so that they do not destroy the preconditions for their own existence?
The book is an example of the lifestyles of people I know and, of course, many world places I love and admired. As the book goes, it is a spiritual guide to anyone who believes in the higher power, the laws that power us, and the unique force of the mind as the controller and manipulator of our bodies. So it is about understanding the relationship of the body and spirit and the special care of both as a unit and of ourselves as individuals who thinks about life in the future. It is for us to have honor and respect for each other, and that is through following the rules and regulations regarded by those who are inspired by their beliefs and hopes.
This book is action-packed with fresh revelation from heaven. Who am I to receive such precious insight on the kingdom of God? Writing this book really revealed to me of how much God loves us through these hidden truths. One of the most important part of our Christian walk is finding out our purpose for life. This will only come through Jesus ministering to us. This is exactly what happened to me as I wrote this book. I thought that I would one day pastor a church, but as I was writing this book, Jesus revealed to me that this is my purpose for life. While writing, I realized that everything was coming to me so effortlessly and I was enjoying it so much that He just confirmed what I was thinking. This is exactly what will happen for you. We have to learn to rest in Jesus, and He will flow through us to bless others. This is what I call the Jesus’ Ministry. As we yield to Jesus, He will reveal our purpose for life that He will use to bless other people. This will bring great fulfillment to your life, as well as allowing Jesus to minister to others through you.
