  • The third book by this author demonstrates how Paul summarised the Gospel in Romans 1 - 8. Paul also made a devastating analysis of the sinfulness of his culture as did Jeremiah in a former age. Written against the backdrop of the Sixties countercultural upheaval and with prophetic force, Dr. Schaeffer presents the case that Jeremiah's denunciations could also apply to modern times. In light of 9/11, Schaeffer seems disturbingly prophetic and he concerns himself with the moral and spiritual death that suffocates truth, meaning and beauty out of the urban culture. He advocates belief and action as well as commitment and compassion.

  • Where is God when good people suffer? Will civilisation end in nuclear war? Is there life after death? Is there really a Devil? Will America repudiate religious freedom?  Is the Anti-Christ here? First published in 1888, Mrs Ellen White presented the conflict within these and other questions and then apparently answered them forthrightly. There is an abundance of history on the early reformers of the Christian Church - if Mrs White was actually a prophet, then there are some fantastic times coming up; if not, her speculation is still of interest.
  • Is it possible to contact universes parallel to our own? Is humanity evolving toward some kind of superman? Will the secret society be the future form of government?  Has someone lost the plot? Not necessarily. The authors spent six years prospecting in that strange country that lies beyond the frontiers of so-called rational knowledge. They feel these questions are vital - and others even more disturbing. Among many items documented: that medieval magicians were far in advance of their modern contemporaries; the way Hiteler relied on the predictions of star-gazers; and the strange undercurrents of fantasy in the behaviour of world leaders in the 1960s. This book is best described as a compendium of dark and peculiar stories, well outside the mainstream of modern thought together with an introduction into the occult. Previously published under the title The Dawn Of Magic. Illustrated with black and white photos.

  • The Celtic approach to mysticism is holistic, with little distinction made between the sacred and the secular, or between the physical world and the spiritual. The spiritual awareness grew from Celtic myths and legends: god-like warriors; druids who could walk between the worlds; and magical lands that lay on the boundaries of earthly kingdoms. Celtic mysticism is an approach to life and this book brings the Celtic world - its histories and stories - into a modern context. The important myths and the Celts' feeling for their world is explored and explained and there are exercises to increase your awareness of the power of nature and its holistic character as well as using meditation  and mind-journeying to meet Celtic archetypes.

  • Sequel to The Man Who Listens. Many years have passed since John Godfrey's sanctuary was built as a refuge for the lost. It is just two marble rooms: one for those waiting to be heard and one for the Man Who Listens.  The Man Who Listens accepts every blasphemy, every pitiful excuse, and every intimate tale of degradation with silent understanding. He is a mysterious stranger. Drawn to the Sanctuary are the grieving, the despairing, the cynical, the defeated, the dying, the betrayed, and the broken...a minister who no longer believes in God; a loving usband who would kill his wife to prevent her lingering death from cancer; a thirty-three year old 'boy'; a rich man who has nothing; a coloured man agonising over a life lived as a symbol; a woman whose hope is a dream; a mother forsaking her faith in the wake of her child’s leukemia; a suicidal working man who has lost his business and his family;  an artist going blind and mad; and a disbelieving cop who furiously seeks out the Sanctuary for one purpose: to expose the Man Who Listens as a fraud. For each, there is a revealing confrontation and the discovery that he or she needs to make.
