-----------hardcover, a solid Very Good copy, a bit of light rubbing and tip wear, a bit of fading to upper edge of text block, a small nick along the upper edge to about 16 pages, rear blank endpaper has been removed, no dustjacket, a nice clean copy, --- 349 pages, "A major breakthrough in our understanding of the origin & nature of the languages of the Bible has made possible the decipherment of the names of the Jewish God & the patriarchs, & now shows the religion of the Israelites & their inheritors, the Christians, to have been founded in a very ancient fertitlity cult centered on the worship of the sacred mushroom, the red topped Amanita Muscaria. After many years of studying the origins & roots of words common to the Sumerian & later Middle Eastern languages, John Allegro believes that many of the stories & characters, & much of the Old Testament must be examined afresh. Biblical stories, previously supposed at leat partly historical, now appear as mushroom myths, conforming to a pattern of such mythology throughout the Near East & classical writings. When, later, the mushroom cult became sophisticated into a mystery religion, involving drug taking & frenzied god possessed orgies with political overtones, it ran afoul of the authorities. To avoid persecution, its devotees transmitted their secret formulae in adaptations of the old mythologies, & it is to such cryptic devices we owe the Jesus stories of the New Testament. The Roman persecutors of the early Christians were probably not deceived by the tale of the crucifies Jewish rabbi, but the later church purged away disturbing reminders of its cultic origins in the cause of respectability, & thereafter preached an historical Jesus.", -----contents include: Introduction; In the Beginning God Created; Sumer and the Beginnings of History; the Names of the Gods; Plants and Drugs; Plant Names and the Mysteries of the Fungus; the Key of the Kingdom; the Man-Child Born of a Virgin; Woman's Part in the Creative Process; The Sacred Prostitute; Religious Lamentation; The Mushroom 'EGG' and Birds of Mythology; the Heavenly Twins; Star of the Morning; Colour and Consistency; Mushroom Cosmography; David, Egypt, and the Census; Death and Resurrection; the Garden of Adonis, Eden and Delight ...

----------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, likely an unread copy, 510 pages, ---"In July 1876 three eight-year-old girls from Marpingen, a village in the west German border region of Saarland, claimed to have seen an apparition of the Virgin Mary. Their visions attracted tens of thousands of pilgrims and prompted numerous claims of miraculous cures. They also led to military intervention, the dispatching of an undercover detective, parliamentary debate, and a dramatic trial. This book examines an episode that contemporaries dubbed the 'German Lourdes', its background and its repercussions. David Blackbourn sets out to recreate the Catholic world of Bismarckian Germany through a detailed analysis of the changing social, economic, and community structures in which it was embedded, and a sensitive account of popular religious beliefs. He powerfully evokes the crisis-laden atmosphere of the 1870s, and offers a subtle interpretation of the interplay between politics and religion in newly unified Germany. The book ranges boldly across the fields of social, cultural and political history, in an engrossing story with many contemporary resonances."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

Selections are made from both categories of Saint and Blessed - - canonized and beatified, allowing for the increasing proportion of women and of new- and third-world holy people. Completely rewritten in a popular style, this volume also has more spiritual - appeal than the full edition. A prayer and intercessory reflection is included after each entry, which lend themselves to family or small-group meditation as well as to individual devotion. The volume also suggests baptismal/confirmation names for the day's commemorations or for inclusion in prayers.'---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

It's what we all long for, what all human beings seek in our jobs, our relationships, our activities. We try so hard to be happy, and all too often we end up empty and unsatisfied. Why? Because, says Billy Graham in this classic work, we are looking for happiness in all the wrong places. We haven't learned the secret Jesus taught in the Beatitudes - that true, lasting happiness simply isn't to be found by seeking it directly. Happiness is a by-product, a bonus that comes when we seek what is really important. And the things that will bring us the satisfaction we long for are not necessarily what the world considers meaningful. Jesus did not have to have an outward stimulus to make Him happy, Billy Graham points out. "He had learned a secret that allowed Him to live above the circumstances of life and fear of the future. He moved with calmness, certainty, and serenity through the most trying circumstances - even death! What was His secret? He gave it to us in the Beautitudes." Presented with Billy Graham's characteristic vigor and simplicity in this landmark book, it is a secret that can transform your life"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

-----------softcover, about 6 x 9 inches, a Near Fine copy, 160 pages, ---How well are the psalms understood? The parables seem more accessible, but are they? And as familiar as we are with the texts of the psalms and the parables, how open are we to new perspectives on them? The studies in Like a Tree Planted, the first volume in the Connections series, encourage readers to deepen their understanding of the psalms and parables and to grow in their relationship with God. Like a Tree Planted invites reflection on eight pairs of psalms and parables by highlighting their shared metaphor. These images, familiar from our everyday lives as well as from both testaments, encourage fresh insights from familiar scriptural texts. The psalms presented here, al from the first book of the Psalter, and the parables, selected from Luke's Gospel, speak deeply and collaboratively through figures of the tree, our stature and status, searching faces, feelings of entitlement and responsiveness, the ecosystem, shepherding, the storehouse, and the other side." An introductory chapter in Like a Tree Planted introduces readers to the process of reading metaphorically, and a concluding chapter draws implications from the reading of these particular psalm and parable texts as a set. Barbara Green believes that many people want to explore both in language and in experience the mysteries of God and our own human condition. With her exciting, imaginative style she offers help for those on that journey those interested in prayer and in a deeper access to Scripture, those working with adult parish groups, preachers of Scripture, those doing retreat work, and individuals. ---Chapters are "Introduction to Metaphor in Psalm and Parable," "The Rooted Tree: Psalm 1 and Luke 13:1-9," "Stature: Psalm 8 and Luke 15:11-32,""Searching Faces: Psalm 27 and Luke 18:9-18," "Entitlement and Responsiveness: Psalm 18 and Luke 18:1-8," "The Ecosystem: Psalm 7 and Luke 16:1-9," "Shepherding: Psalm 23 and Luke 15:3-7," "The Storehouse: Psalm 39 and Luke 12:13-21," "The Other Side: Psalm 41, Luke 10:25-29," Conclusion, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
