In the fall of 1993, Whittier College - located in Whittier, California - hosted a lively debate. The topic: "Does God Exist?" And if so, does it matter? Each debater made a formal presentation, and then gave a brief critique of his opponent's presentation. Then members of the audience had an opportunity to ask questions of the two debaters.
How does the Christian faith relate to other faiths? In what sense is Christianity unique? How might a Christian approach the study of comparative religions? These and other questions are addressed in Dr. Montgomery's lecture at the University of Illinois - Urbana in the spring of 1966, and is followed by a "spirited dialogue" between Dr. Montgomery and Dr. Tiebout, Professor of Comparative Religion at the University of Illinois - Urbana.
Do you think your thoughts, or do your thoughts think you? Do your core beliefs about reality - about God, about humanity, about what's possible for yourself, other people or for the future of our planet - serve you, or do you serve your beliefs?

What would it mean to free your mind?

Heaven may not be what you think it is. We often think of heaven in two extremes: It's either a dreamy existence where we float around on clouds with nothing much to do, or it's something far off in the future that we don't want to happen until we accomplish all that we want to in this life. Both of these are flat wrong, and Tony Evans looks to scripture to set the record straight. Simple and straight forward, Eternity is a short book on what eternity with God will really be like.

American evangelicals, especially dispensationalists, have a tendency to whitewash whatever the modern Israeli government does, owing to a supposed identification of contemporary Israel with the Israel of the Old Testament and biblical prophecy.

"Mesmerizing & hopeful"
The Dalai Lama, at his most compassionate and outspoken, here elaborates and deepens his vision for the nonreligious way. Transcending the mere "religion wars", he outlines a system of secular ethics that gives tolerant respect to religion, those that ground ethics in a belief in God and an afterlife, and those that understand good actions as leading to better states of existence in future lives.

The co-editors of Gnosis magazine explore the many esoteric traditions that Western culture has to offer.

Mystics and sages have long maintained that there exists an interconnecting cosmic field at the roots of reality that conserves and conveys information, a field known as the Akashic record. Recent discoveries in vacuum physics show that this Akashic field is real and has its equivalent in science's zero-point field that underlies space itself. This field consists of a subtle sea of fluctuating energies from which all things arise: atoms and galaxies, stars and planets, living beings, and even consciousness.
