  • Bentov - 'Ben' to his friends - says this book is the result of some living room discussions with friends over a period of time, which become more elaborate as topics were added. His dilemma was - at what point does one stop acquiring knowledge and start writing? He chose to write. Goal: to build a model of the Universe that will satisfy the need for a comprehensive picture of what our existence is all about.  In other words, a holistic model that encompasses not only the physical, observable universe that is our immediate environment and the distant universe as observed by astronomers, but the  'realities'  of our emotional, mental and intuitive components.

  • Beneath the visible authoritarianism in politics, social structures and personalities is a far more pervasive covert, authoritarianism, hidden in culture, morality and daily life. By unmasking authoritarianism in such areas as addiction, intimate relationships, cuts and religion, the authors expose it as a major social factor in social disintegration. Part 1 examines the most extreme example of one person giving power to another, the guru/disciple relationship, as this reveals less obvious occurrences of control Guru is a metaphor for anyone who manipulates others under the guise of knowing ‘what’s best’ for them – whether leaders, mothers or lovers. Party 2 decodes the authoritarian control concealed in contemporary values and beliefs and portrays how basic problems, both personal and global, are tied to authoritarian assumptions so embedded they are taken for granted.

  • Edited by Hugh Lynn Cayce. Out of 14,000 of Cayce's recorded readings, more than 9,000 dealt with health.  Cayce's ability to diagnose, while in trance, the physical disorders of a person he had never met, who might be hundreds of miles away and then suggest effective treatment remains one of the most astonishing psychic feats of modern times. Here, a dozen cases are scrutinised by professional writer Carter and modern M.D. McGarey. What sort of person consulted Cayce? What did the readings mean to those who received them? What light does advances in modern medicine shed on his then-unorthodox recommendations for treatment? A fascinating and often surprising book.

  • 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.
