This very important work offers penetrating dialogues between the great spiritual leader and the renowned physicist that shed light on the fundamental nature of existence. Krishnamurti and David Bohm probe such questions as ‘why has humanity made thought so important in every aspect of life? How does one cleanse the mind of the ‘accumulation of time’ and break the ‘pattern of ego -centered activity’? The Ending of Time concludes by referring to the wrong turn humanity has taken, but does not see this as something from which there is no escape. There is an insistence that mankind can change fundamentally; but this requires going from one’s narrow and particular interests toward the general, and ultimately moving still deeper into that purity of compassion, love and intelligence that originates beyond thought, time, or even emptiness.
Second Edition (Crown Quarto, 152 pages, fully illustrated). "The Ending of the Words" examines the thought and philosophy of the English magician Aleister Crowley through the lens of practical research. With an in-depth presentation of the source Tradition, the book introduces Thelema, the Law of the New Aeon declared by Crowley, to a modern readership. Includes a comprehensive glossary of Egyptian, Qabalistic and Thelemic terminology essential to the study of "The Book of the Law".
Why did Roman Britain collapse? What sort of society succeeded it? How did the Anglo-Saxons take over? And how far is the traditional view of a massacre of the native population a product of biased historical sources? This text explores what Britain was like in the 4th-century AD and looks at how this can be understood when placed in the wider context of the western Roman Empire. Information won from archaeology rather than history is emphasized and leads to an explanation of the fall of Roman Britain. The author also offers some suggestions about the place of the post-Roman population in the formation of England.

Among his many contributions to New Testament studies, Donald Juel was perhaps best known for his treatment of the ending of Mark's Gospel. He saw the open-endedness of Mark as powerfully unsettling for the reader who desires to tame and predict God's actions. In this series of essays, edited by Beverly Roberts Gaventa and Patrick Miller, theologians begin with Juel's own work and reflect on the "unsettling" in the context of their own work.

"I wrote this piece to enlighten the minds of people in the world, especially blacks/African-Americans, about the negative psychological effects of the Willie Lynch Letter. This malicious labyrinth has impacted many lives, causing ignorance, broken homes, disrespectfulness, and poor health throughout the nation. I'm concentrating more on aiding blacks/African-Americans because this ethnic group statistically leads America in negative aspects of life, such as heart disease, poverty, broken homes, incarcerations, lack of education, etc.-and the fact that this system was directed toward African-Americans. Although all cultures and nationalities suffer from such downfalls because of such a melting pot society we live in, any man, woman, or child is capable of falling victim to Lynch's negative behavioral application. Mankind, as a whole, needs an improvement." About the Author Le Brown a.k.a. "Phenomenal Le" was born and raised in Florence, South Carolina. He currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Because it is conspicuously absent from more than one early Greek manuscript, the final section of the gospel of Mark (16:9-20) that details Christ’s resurrection remains a constant source of debate among serious students of the New Testament. Perspectives on the Ending of Mark presents in counterpoint form the split opinions about this difficult passage with a goal of determining which is more likely. Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary professors Maurice Robinson and David Alan Black argue for the verses’ authenticity. Keith Elliott (University of Leeds) and Daniel Wallace (Dallas Theological Seminary) contend that they are not original to Mark’s gospel. Darrell Bock (Dallas Theological Seminary) responds to each view and summarizes the state of current research on the entire issue.
The extent of the so-called History of David’s Rise has been indecisive, and as a result, various issues around the document have been left extremely flexible. This comprehensive monograph sees the root of the problem in inadequate methodological reflection, and seeks to provide sensible answers to the source-critical question on the basis of hermeneutic and literary reflection.
