    When poet Kathleen Norris was a child, the words judgment, prayer, salvation, sinner, and even Christ all formed what she calls religion's "scary vocabulary" - words that intimidate and alienate people from their faith. As an adult, Norris set out to reclaim her religion, redefining these words using her own experience. In Amazing Grace, she shares her wisdom, challenges our fear of difficult theological ideas, and offers an illuminating perspective on the vocabulary of faith.

    The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ provides an almost complete record of the words and works of Jesus Christ, including those years about which the New Testament Gospels are silent. It begins with Jesus's birth in Bethlehem and goes on to describe his 18 years of study in the East, his ascension from the Mount of Olives, and his travels to the monasteries of Tibet and the temples of Egypt, India, Persia, and Greece. Levi spent over 40 years preparing this document in order to tell the story of a much more complex Jesus than previously known.

    The search for higher truth must be conducted in the midst of the forces of life, with all its demands and seductions. So teaches The Bhagavad Gita, an ancient text that has been called the quintessence of the spirituality of India. In it, the great warrior Arjuna contemplates the meaning of life, just moments before entering the battlefield. "Why do I exist? Why should I fight against my loved ones? And where shall I go after I die?" he asks himself in search for knowledge of the Absolute.
