Universal Man, Abd-al-Karim al-Jili
1 Abd-al-Karim al-Jili Universal Man
UK Beshara Publications 1995 0904975150 / 9780904975154 Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
75 pages. Abd al-Karim al-Jili, or Abdul Karim Jili was a Muslim sufi saint and mystic who was born in 1366 at Jil in Baghdad. He is famous in Muslim mysticism as the author of this book - "Universal Man". He travelled in India; lived for a time in Yemen, and died in 1403, at the age of 38. He produced more than twenty books. of which Universal Man (al-insan al-kamil) is the most celebrated. His teaching follows that of Muhyiddin ibn 'Arabi (‘the Greatest Sheikh'), of which it can be regarded as a systematic exposition. Universal Man is Man the Macrocosm, the complete image and manifested consciousness of God, exempli?ed and expressed in the lives of saintly individuals. ]ili's account therefore takes the form of a series of chapters on the appearances of Absolute Reality as Essence, Names, Qualities and Divinity. These appearances correspond to contemplative states encountered by the mystic on the path of Union, which are discussed more particularly in the later chapters. Jili's exposition is incisive and illuminating; his intention entirely practical. He writes: ‘I will mention of all that only that which happened to me on my own journey to God; moreover I recount nothing in this book, neither of myself nor of another, without my having tested it at the time when I travelled in God by the path of intuition and direct vision’. Titus Burckhardt has provided an extensive and helpful introduction to Jili's work, and commentary on the text.

I'm Not Scared, Ammaniti, Niccolo
4 Ammaniti, Niccolo I'm Not Scared
Australia Text Publishing 2004 187700846X / 9781877008467 Reprint Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
215 pages. Translated from the Italian as: "Io non ho paura" which was first published by Giulio Einaudi Editore 2001. Winner of the prestigious 2001 Viareggio-Repaci Prize for Fiction. 1978, the hottest summer of the twentieth century. In a tiny Italian rural community, the adults shelter indoors while six children venture out on their bikes across the scorched, deserted countryside. In the midst of a sea of golden wheat, nine-year-old Michele Amitrano discovers a secret so momentous, so terrible, that he dare not tell anyone about it. To come to terms with what he finds, he will have to draw strength from his own imagination and sense of humanity. The reader witnesses a dual story: the one that is seen through Michele's eyes, and the tragedy involving the adults of this isolated hamlet. The result is an immensely powerful, lyrical and skilfully narrated novel, reminiscent of such classics as Stand By Me, To Kill a Mockingbird andThe Adventures of Tom Sawyer. A compelling and utterly absorbing read, I'm Not Scared reinforces Ammaniti's status as a major literary talent. Winner of the Viareggio-Repaci Prize for Literature. Niccolo Ammaniti has written two collections of short stories and six novels, four of which have been translated into English. He was the youngest ever winner of the Italian Viareggio Literary Prize for Fiction for his best-selling novel I'm Not Scared,which has been translated into thirty-five languages. The Crossroads received the Premio Strega Prize in 2007, Italy's equivalent to the Booker Prize. Review: This gripping American debut by Italian novelist Ammaniti captures well the vagaries of childhood: the shifting alliances, the casual betrayals and the mix of helplessness and earnest audacity with which children confront adult situations. Nine-year-old Michele Amitrano lives with his little sister, devoted mother and distant father in a rural Italian hamlet consisting of five dilapidated houses. In the sweltering summer of 1978, he and a group of his friends strike out on their bikes across the barren, scorched hills. While exploring an abandoned house, Michele discovers what he believes to be the dead body of a boy his own age. He cannot bring himself to tell his friends. When he tries to tell his father, the elder Amitrano brushes him off. Drawn back to the site, Michele discovers that the boy is not dead, but weak, disoriented and unable to account for his presence there. Michele brings the boy food and water and slowly learns more about him. The boy's story-which includes kidnapping and ransom-are too much for a nine-year-old to fathom and involve virtually every adult in the tiny community. Yet Michele decides that he must do something to help the boy. Part mystery, part morality play, the novel is written in simple, spare prose. The characters, particularly that of Michele, spring to life, and the story builds to a heart-stopping climax. Readers will find this accomplished work hard to put down and even harder to forget. (Feb.) Forecast: This novel was a bestseller in Italy, and while that doesn't usually translate into U.S. sales, Ammaniti's masterful use of suspense should help win him an American following. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information. 'Niccolo Ammaniti is the best novelist of his generation.' Il Giornale 'Ammaniti, one of the most admired figures on the Italian fiction scene...uses short sentences like the cracks of a whip and sharp paragraphs to make our hearts race and carry us to the edge of the abyss.' ABC, Spain 'Ammaniti is a born story-teller.' L'Unita 'Readers will find this accomplished work hard to put down and even harder to forget.' Publishers Weekly 'A tense, breathless book, written with self-confidence and vitality.' La Stampa 'Readable in one breath...moving, impressive, amazing. It reminds you of Italo Calvino, but a Calvino warmed by a humanity that is not afraid to roll around in the mud.' Panorama 'Confirms his extraordinary narrative talent, over which he superimposes an atmosphere of horror and marvel.' (Le Monde.)

8 Atkin, Don Creation’s Cry: The Heart of Apostolic Passion
Don Atkin 1931527970 / 9781931527972 Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
224 pages. In a day when so many either ignore apostolic ministry, or others pervert its meaning, it is a joy to read and understand the big picture of what the Lord has purposed for His Church. There's so much rich wisdom Don conveys in "Creation's Cry". According to Steve Eastman, "Don Atkin began his journey with God in 1963. He was firmly entrenched in the church system. A few years later he migrated from sunny California to snowy, upstate New York. His story brought back memories of other families I had met in the church system, who experienced miraculous provision as they sold out to God and trusted Him to meet all their needs. But God is not static. Neither was He content to allow Don Atkins to camp out at his initial understanding of the Kingdom of God. Don ended up on the receiving end of two mentoring relationships that helped him move beyond the traditional paradigm of church. It seems much of the church is obsessed with saving souls, which it subsequently abandoned. The New Testament emphasizes discipling newly born believers. For Don, that came to include hosting long-time house guests, who caught the Christian life by watching Jesus live out His life through him and his family. Don is not a hierarchical guy. He sees apostles as wise master builders whose influence stems from their function, not a position. A man’s gifts make room for him, and people gifted to be apostles come to be recognized as such through the fruit in their lives. Don did not obey his mentors because they demanded it, but because he recognized God working through them. Mentoring is intended to be temporary, leading the disciple to where he can hear God for himself, no longer needing a constant intermediary. I would be less than honest if I said everything in the book blessed me. One part was disturbing because it illustrates a style of parenting in sharp contrast to my own. Don tells about a time when his daughter was arriving from school. He had always told her to come straight home. At 20 minutes past the deadline, Don went to look for her and found her talking to a boy. He sent her to her room until he had cooled off, went in to speak with her and accepted her apology. They he spanked her with a paddle. He says she took it well. In my opinion, what worked for Don and his daughter, would not work for the majority of families. A child who was spanked after being told she was forgiven would normally feel betrayed and resentful. Just as a disciple needs to be gradually given more responsibility before the end of a discipling relationship, I feel a child needs to grow in decision-making before reaching adulthood. Otherwise, he or she is not ready to accept adult responsibilities. If a daughter is old enough to be interested in boys, she is probably too old to spank. A more appropriate punishment would be a loss of privilege. Perhaps if Don had included his daughter’s age in the story, his actions would have been more understandable. I do not wish to belabor my one area of disagreement with a book I found to be otherwise sound. Don Atkins has a lot to offer in practical experience as he teaches on the apostolic. You will learn more from him than you would at most apostolic-prophetic conferences."

Australia The Poppy Press 1992 0646114409 / 9780646114408 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
219 pages. This book ventures behind daily news of the Middle East - images of killings, assassinations, bombings and faltering peace talks - to tell the story of ordinary Israelis and Palestinians caught up in the Middle East quagmire. The story of a Palestinian family and an Israeli family driven apart by the Arab-Israeli conflict emerges as British spy Dickie Jones attempts to reverse his dwindling career fortunes by exploiting his daughter’s friendship with an Australian archaeologist and photo-journalist. The Australian’s friendship with a Palestinian businessman reveals the saga of the two families, who for decades had been friends and neighbours in Jerusalem up to the years before modern Israel was founded. After more than forty years apart, the separate ways of the families cross briefly and tragically. This encounter focuses attention on the elusiveness of truth in the Middle East. Despite the undoubted tragedy of the Arab-Israeli dispute, the novel captures the humour, irony and fatalism of the area and its people, whose resilience belies the seriousness of the situation. David Balderstone was Middle East Correspondent for The Age, Melbourne, from 1977- 1983. During this time, he was a regular visitor to Ayatollah Khomeini’s Iran, covered peace negotiations between Egypt and Israel, and was a front line reporter on the Iran/Iraq war front and in Lebanon. Since then, he has visited the area regularly, and broadcast extensively on Middle East politics for the ABC ’s Radio Australia. He began his career as a cadet journalist on 'The Age' in 1966.

Whilst this book reveals some of the secrets of the super athlete, in its entirety it will assist many others to realize their individual goals of fitness health happiness and longevity. My understanding of the advanced procedures of health and ?tness began at the age of 13 when I suffered from an illness that put me into a coma for several days. Instead of studying for school grades as a teenager, I found myself studying for survival, using books written by exceptional athletes, doctors who accepted the principals of both eastern and western medicine and that unbelievable minority of people who have healed themselves of disease such as cancer. The anguish that my personal crisis caused, changed my whole outlook on life, and exposed principles of the connection between mind and body that allowed me to understand some of our mysteries of life. My learning process not only led me to success over illness, but also exposed secrets that led to super ?tness and strength, enabling me to enjoy national success as an athlete (the author).

19 Ben-Tovim, Atarah; Boyd, Douglas You Can Make Music! It's Never Too Late to Start
UK Victor Gollancz 1986 0575037830 / 9780575037830 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
143 pages. Have you ever wished that you could play a musical instrument? Maybe you started to learn but gave up in frustration, believing you were 'no good at music'. Perhaps you were told at school that you were 'unmusical' or 'tone deaf'. , Atarah Ben-Tovim and Douglas Boyd maintain that nearly every adult is musical enough to experience the deep satisfaction of playing an instrument. They stress that age is no hindrance tolearning and may even be a positive advantage. From a unique, ten years' research programme, they have developed a practical and reliable system of testing musical aptitude; and they have shown that most people who fail on an instrument do so because it was wrongly selected. This book enables adults to use the same step-by-step approach as the authors' previous and highly successful book, "The Right Instrument for Your Child". Charts and questionnaires tell you if now is the right time to begin learning an instrument. They also assess your latent musical ability; compare the advantages and disadvantages of different instruments; and, finally, reveal the instrument to which you are physically and temperamentally best suited and which most easily fits in with your current lifestyle. Having selected the right instrument you will need a wide range of information on purchasing it and finding a teacher. For this, the Beginners' Information Pack at the back of the book is an invaluable aid. Atarah Ben-Tovim and Douglas Boyd are the ideal pair to demystify music and to understand beginners’ problems. Atarah was a child progidy on the flute, while Douglas Boyd, a brilliant linguist, was a musical drop-out. He gave up the piano after three years of agony yet went on to spend 20 fulfilling years in the music business.

Myth and Today's Consciousness, Berg, Ean

U. K. Coventure 1986 0904575306 / 9780904575309 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
112 pages. The image, or persona, to which it is expected one should conform in the new age, whether we call it Aquarian, post- Christian, nuclear, or space, is already revealing itself. It is both more individual and more generalized than its predecessor. The new tide runs strongly against the accidental differences that divide us, like class, nationality and religion, flowing rather with the essential qualities which unite us. Much light has been shed on the nature of these qualities by the twentieth century phenomenon of depth psychology. As a result, we are becoming more sceptical of the prophet and the hero and the guru who claims special knowledge or virtue - or at least we ought to be - and more aware of the shadow that contradicts and counteracts the aspirations of the idealist, more conscious and tolerant of the paradoxical multiplicity of human nature....The gods and their myths are mighty forces which grip the psyche; they are never more dangerous than when they are ignored, repressed or slighted. So this book is very much concerned with religion, Christianity, and the predecessors which it supplanted, and the present state of our relationship with the gods. This is a presumptuous aim which will rely heavily for its fulfillment on a subjective, intuitive assessment of the signs of the times. Particular emphasis will be placed on the need to become more conscious of the deities with whom we appear to be on bad terms. The book is apologetically polytheistic in the same way that the circle of the horoscope contains the signs and the planets and the Tarot deck its multitude of archetypal images.
