Nothing has frightened or fascinated us more than the experience that we call 'death'. Now, in what very well could be the most profound of all his CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD books, bestselling Mobius author Neale Donald Walsch asks the questions that we have all wanted to ask, and receives answers we have all been waiting for, in this deeply moving and highly personal dialogue with Deity. HOME WITH GOD is the definitive spiritual work on death and dying, offering new insights, deep wisdom and peace of mind, for the terminally ill, family members of the dying, hospital and medical professionals, members of the clergy, and everyone encountering death. HOME WITH GOD logically completes Neale Donald Walsch's dialogue with God, exploring the process by which we end our lives here on earth and begin our so-called After Life experience. A book of comfort, hope and surprising revelation, HOME WITH GOD is an astonishing, deeply healing, and reassuring spiritual classic.
Home with God was written to honor the kinship of all people. The stories and lessons it contains are designed to rekindle the readers memory of their true spiritual nature as sons and daughters of God, experiencing themselves as sovereign beings who have inadvertently forgotten their true identity. Following the advice of the last chapters twenty Frequency Elevators can lead to the readers mind/body/spirit healing and the potential restoration of his or her spiritual self.

How to Go on Retreat Without Going Away ... A Programme and Guide
Author: Penny Roker
Pubpsher: Canterbury Press
Retreats are increasingly popular and, in stressful and anxious times, perhaps the need to refocus our lives on what will nurture and sustain us inwardly is greater than ever. This versatile resource offers a complete kit for making a day, weekend or week-long retreat without leaving home. It is both gentle and challenging, recognising that some can only grab a brief interlude of solitude on the way to work or when the children are asleep, while others have more time on their hands than they would like.
From biblical times through the Middle Ages and the Reformation, the Christian religion enjoyed a sturdy belief in God, consistent with human knowledge of the universe. But modern science then introduced a new picture of this world, at odds not only with the old world picture but with the miracle-working God of ancient Scripture. Of the many different responses to this conflict, three stand out: i) To deny the religious view of God and the world; or ii) To deny many solid findings of generations of scientists concerning the evolution of stars, the Earth, and life; or iii) To deny little, yet to affirm little in religion—to repeat ancient rituals without serious conviction. Lee Adams Young, a physicist and Bible scholar, claims to replace this chaos with an orderly view of God and the world—in only 437 pages! He makes three main points: 1. The Bible consistently but falsely split the world into two separate realms: Heaven and Earth. God rarely—or never—left his celestial throne room to visit the Earth. The steeples of traditional churches pointed toward this Sky God, and the Lord's Prayer still speaks of a Father in Heaven. The result has been a disconnect between God and the believer—a chasm bridged only by armies of angels and other intermediaries, or via long-distance calls. The solution, according to At Home with God: Here and Now, is to proclaim (as does science) that there is only one realm of reality. God should be seen as dwelling in this world, says Young—indeed, within each of us, available for direct communication and personal support. Prayer should take the form of face-to-face communication with a person no farther away than the other end of a park bench. 2. The Bible consistently and correctly insists upon the inseparability of the human body and soul. So does Aristotle, and the latest Catholic Catechism. Alas, in postbiblical times many Jews and Christians have come to believe that at death the human soul could detach itself from the body and ascend to Heaven. Young responds as follows: a. If there is no Heaven, the latter step has no meaning. We are face to face with God now in this life. Because we already live in a sacred world, one need not die in order to reach the divine. b. The notion of a soul that can function independently of bodily support goes against ancient and modern awareness of the influence of bodily conditions on thinking and memory. c. Near-death experiences (NDEs) are reports from the living, not from those who died. Medical research shows that NDEs are triggered, not by the objective peril of death, but by the subjective fear of death. d. Human faith in an afterlife can blunt the human need to put interpersonal relationships in order in this life. We must mend our personal fences now—there is no second chance, as the Hebrew Bible says. 3. The God depicted in Young's book is entirely consistent with modern science. That God is seen as the essential governor of nature, whose regularities people depend on and science describes. This book is recommended to all who seek a religious faith based on reality, not makebelieve; a faith grounded in ancient wisdom yet believable in this modern age.
