The Senses of Scripture reveals the essence of biblical epistemology - the ways in which ancient Israelites thought about and used their sensorium. The theoretical introduction demonstrates that scholars need to liberate themselves from the Western bias that holds a pentasensory paradigm and prioritises the sense of sight. The discussion of the biblical material demonstrates that biblical scholars should follow a similar path. Through examination of associative and contextual patters the author reaches a septasensory model, including sight, hearing, speech, kinaesthesia, touch, taste, and smell. It is further demonstrated that the senses, according to the HB, are a divinely created physical experience, which symbolised human ability to act in a sovereign manner in the world. Despite the lack of a biblical Hebrew term 'sense', it seems that at times the merism sight and hearing serves that matter. Finally, the book discusses the longstanding dispute regarding the primacy of sight vs. hearing, and claims that although there is no strict sensory hierarchy evident in the text, sight holds a central space in biblical epistemology.

It did not start out that way . . . what began as a simple letter mailed to a few friends has now emerged as this book, taking the form of practical, spiritual thoughts and actions that center around the seasons of the church and calendar year. Encouragement came like so many birds filling the sky, singing to lift the dawn that I might see a new day. Their music lifted my soul. Words of interest asking when this material would be published became the incentive for publication. Years of celebration involving the seasons that touch our lives so deeply moved within me. The high seasons and holy days never failed to provide a deep inspiration in my soul. It is from these moments that I compose the words and images that are found in this book. Following Spiritual Pathways A pathway to spiritual growth is open to those who seek in quiet moments an awareness of the Divine. Here the mind will inform the heart and the heart will illuminate the mind, forming a spiritual circle that gives balance to life. Each page invites you to enter an experience expressed in poetic form along with a guided imagery that can turn these quiet moments into a meaningful life experience. This pathway reflects my personal journey of meditation that began in 1977 under the guidance of Sister Virginia Mary Barta of Marionjoy in Wheaton, Illinois, and the urging of Rev. Dean Williams the Chaplain. Since then, I have shared what I experience as my mind informs my heart and my heart illuminates my mind.

Narayana, is Self-born Spirit, ever stirring the “primordial Ocean of Space” or Akasha, which is Its progeny. He Androgyne Wisdom, the Sophia of the Gnostics, the Hindu female Nari, vivifying the “waters” of chaos or potential matter from afar, without touching the abyss of darkness. “She is unable to do so, for Wisdom is purely intellectual, and cannot act directly on matter.” Says Vishnu: “I called the name of water Nara in ancient times, and am hence called Narayana, for that was always the abode I moved in.” The “moist principle” of Space becomes “wet” only after Its separation by Narayana’s invisible Flame. Narayana is Self-created, i.e., Unmanifested Logos (Ishvara is Logos Manifested). He is the “mover on the Waters” of space: Narayana is one and the same as Shekhinah and Daiviprakriti, the Light of Logos. Not only Narayana makes us all sing and dance around Him in a circle, He is the choirmaster at the centre of our being. Appearing with every Manvantara as Narayana, He remains ever “Concealed in Akasha and present in Ether,” He is, and yet He is Not. In terms of the Sacred Word, Nara is A, the Germ, Divine Spirit or Holy Ghost, that fecundates Nari or U, Kosmos’ Virgin Matrix or Waters of Life, which is an emanation of Itself. Narayana is M, the Spirit of God, moving the Two into existence. Narayana is the ONE, the Pythagorean Monas dwelling in solitude and darkness. “Pythagoras had a reason for never using the finite, useless figure 2, and for altogether discarding it. The ONE can, when manifesting, become only Three. The unmanifested, when a simple duality, remains passive and concealed,” says a Master of Wisdom. Narayana is the Eternal Breath of the Unconscious All, ever arousing the slumbering Waters of Life, which are the Noumenon of Matter also bearing Latent Spirit. He is the ONE and only Cause of Duality. Narayana is the seventh and highest principle of our solar system. He throbs in the heart of every spiritual man, and everywhere. He is Logos Itself. Genesis’ Heaven and Earth, alludes to the separation of the Primordial Substance to Light in its upper (Spirit), and Darkness in its lower portions (Matter), i.e., to the separation of the invisible from the visible by the Firmament, which is the manifested Universe. Narayana may be plunged in the Waters of Wisdom but He is not the God of the Waters. Varuna is the Vedic God of the Waters of Space, Akasha or “Heaven,” and prototype of the Greek Ouranos. “He who breaks Varuna’s laws is punished by Indra.” For Indra is the Vedic God of the real Firmament, or Mahat-Nous, and prototype of the Illusion of Separateness.

London, 1680. The famous philosopher, Sir Robert Boyle, is about to demonstrate the results of his investigations of the phosphorus and its cold fire to fellows of the Royal Society and other guests. Far away at the edge of Wales an alchemist learns of the discovery and, helped by his young assistant, attempts in his own way to form the mysterious material, little suspecting that his work threatens to open the universe to the evil power of the Malevolence. Summoned by the Brains, September, the Cludydd o Maengolauseren, arrives charged with halting the Malevolence’s storm of destruction. But how? She finds herself out of her time and in a world not quite her own. Nevertheless her experience of the Malevolence tells her that she must do something. The fantastic beasts she encounters may come to her aid, if she can work out how to save them from the Cold Fire. For September, hardly any time has passed since she was trying to save Gwlad in Peter R. Ellis’ thrilling fantasy series Evil Above the Stars. Now, in the first of the September Weekes novels, she appears to be closer to home, at least in space if not time. But not everything is as she’d expect it, and she still seems to be wearing her school uniform! Combining science, fantasy and adventure, this is a novel truly worthy of the designation Speculative Fiction.

This book traverses the cultural landscape of Colombia through in-depth analyses of displacement, local and global cultures, human rights abuses, and literary and media production. Through an exploration of the cultural processes that perpetuate the "darker side" of Latin America for global consumption, it investigates the "condition" that has led writers, filmmakers, and artists to embrace (purposefully or not) the incessant violence in Colombian society as the object of their own creative endeavors. In this examination of mass-marketed cultural products such as narco-stories, captivity memoirs, gritty travel narratives, and films, Herrero-Olaizola seeks to offer a hemispheric approach to the role played by Colombia in cultural production across the continent where the illicit drug trade has made significant inroads. To this end, he identifies the "Colombian condition" within the parameters of the global economy while concentrating on the commodification of Latin America’s violence for cultural consumption.

With a new cosmology and a new concept of God and humanity, the New Age movement in South Africa has been met with negative reactions in some Christian circles. Rather than take this view, this book instead probes New Age beliefs, arguing that some of its central themes are already prevelant in society, whether we realise it or not.
