✏In Quest of God Book Summary : COMPARABLE IN LASTING significance to the famous classics TheWay of a Pilgrim and Brother Lawrence's The Practice of the Presence of God, this book is an extraordinary spiritual autobiography. It recounts the story of a homeless monk's journey as he travels the dusty roads and paths of the Indian subcontinent, from the ancient temples of the south to the awe-inspiring, snow-covered Himalayas of the north. This is the tale of a pilgrimage, vividly and compellingly told, taken with the hallmarks of complete faith in the Creator and constant remembrance of God. Swami Ramdas did not accept money and treated all people he encountered as manifestations of his Beloved. The narrative contains many inspiring accounts of how his pure love transformed people who at first treated him very harshly. Whatever situation he was placed in, he didn't fail to notice the lighter side, which appealed to his keen sense of the comic and ludicrous in life. He never lost this quality, even after he became God-intoxicated and lived on the road in total, blissful surrender to the divine will. Many readers find themselves in a lifelong love affair with this story. This book is the first in a trilogy chronicling Swami Ramdas' pilgrimage to God-realization. The next two volumes, In the Vision of God, volumes I and II, are also available from Blue Dove Press.

✏Genghis Khan and the Quest for God Book Summary : A landmark biography by the New York Times bestselling author of Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World that reveals how Genghis harnessed the power of religion to rule the largest empire the world has ever known. Throughout history the world's greatest conquerors have made their mark not just on the battlefield, but in the societies they have transformed. Genghis Khan conquered by arms and bravery, but he ruled by commerce and religion. He created the world's greatest trading network and drastically lowered taxes for merchants, but he knew that if his empire was going to last, he would need something stronger and more binding than trade. He needed religion. And so, unlike the Christian, Taoist and Muslim conquerors who came before him, he gave his subjects freedom of religion. Genghis lived in the 13th century, but he struggled with many of the same problems we face today: How should one balance religious freedom with the need to reign in fanatics? Can one compel rival religions - driven by deep seated hatred--to live together in peace? A celebrated anthropologist whose bestselling Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World radically transformed our understanding of the Mongols and their legacy, Jack Weatherford has spent eighteen years exploring areas of Mongolia closed until the fall of the Soviet Union and researching The Secret History of the Mongols, an astonishing document written in code that was only recently discovered. He pored through archives and found groundbreaking evidence of Genghis's influence on the founding fathers and his essential impact on Thomas Jefferson. Genghis Khan and the Quest for God is a masterpiece of erudition and insight, his most personal and resonant work. From the Hardcover edition.

✏God in Quest of Man Book Summary : It is 1938-39. Nazis invade Czechoslovakia. Martians invade New Jersey. Soviet agents infiltrate the Manhattan media. The Mutual Broadcasting System is struggling to save a failing mystery show, Adventures of Gideon Cairn. A dashing, obscure Canadian actor is hired to play Gideon Cairn, and a troubling element of the occult is introduced in the scripts. Then, at the end of one Sunday-night broadcast, the actor makes an unscripted announcement: on the next weekly broadcast Gideon Cairn will provide information that will lead to the solution of a recent real-life assassination in Rockefeller Plaza. This story of the week between the two broadcasts is told from three points of view -that of Michael, a young scriptwriter whose mind is infected by the fantasies of pulp fiction - that of Milton, a middle-aged radio producer with ties to the American Communist Party - and that of Marion, the senior writer on the show, whose experience has led her to distrust dashing actors, political ideologies, and the attractions of the kind of mystery fiction that she has been writing. Enter the NYPD, FBI, Communists, Fellow Travelers, Nazis, The Lone Ranger, Charlie McCarthy and Orson Welles. Read on...

✏Tolstoy s Quest for God Book Summary : The religious dimension of Tolstoy's life is usually associated with his later years following his renunciation of art. In this volume, Daniel Rancour-Laferriere demonstrates instead that Tolstoy was preoccupied with a quest for God throughout all of his adult life. Although renowned as the author of War and Peace, Anna Karenina, The Death of Ivan Ilych, and other literary works, and for his activism on behalf of the poor and the downtrodden of Russia, Tolstoy himself was concerned primarily with achieving personal union with God. Tolstoy suffered from periodic bouts of depression which brought his creative life to a standstill, and which intensified his need to find comfort in the embrace of a personal God. At times he was in such psychic pain he wanted to die. Yet Tolstoy felt that he deserved to suffer, and he learned to welcome suffering in masochistic fashion. Rancour-Laferriere locates the psychological underpinnings of Tolstoy's suffering in a bipolar illness that led him actively to seek suffering and self-humiliation in the Russian tradition of "holy foolishness." With voluntary suffering, and Jesus Christ as his model, Tolstoy advocated "nonresistance to evil," and in his daily life he strove never to return evil actions or words with physical or verbal resistance. On the other hand, being bipolar, Tolstoy in some situations would drift in a manic direction, indulging in delusions of grandeur. Indeed, the aging Tolstoy occasionally went so far as to equate himself with God, as can be seen from his diaries and personal correspondence. The pantheistic world view which Tolstoy achieved at the end of his life meant that God was within himself and within all people and all things in the entire universe. By this time Tolstoy was also utilizing images of a mother to represent his God. With this essentially maternal God so conveniently available, there was nowhere Tolstoy could be without Her. For, in the end, Tolstoy's quest for God was a compensatory search for the mother who died when he was barely two years old. Tolstoy's Quest for God is an original and penetrating contribution to the study of one of the world's supreme writers.

✏Is the Quest for Meaning the Quest for God Book Summary : Traditionally, religion was the supplier of meaning. It is often said that the quest for meaning is at bottom a quest for God, a quest that can only find an adequate answer in religion. But then what is the alternative for those who reject religion? Emptiness and meaninglessness, as Nietzsche succinctly formulated it: We have killed God. Are we not straying as through an infinite nothing? In the meantime, non-believers have found a solution for the crisis in meaning. People are not (usually) nihilists but live their lives and consider them to be meaningful without religion. This study is concerned with determining once again the place of the ascription of meaning from the perspective of the Christian faith in its relation to the non-religious ascription of meaning. For this purpose an analysis is given of contemporary theological and philosophical views of the problem of meaning. The crisis of meaning as it has arisen in Nietzsche and the theatre of the absurd is examined. Stoker also discusses contemporary forms of the ascription of meaning without religion such as self-actualization and functional rationality as sources of meaning. Stoker rejects an 'apologetics of need'. He posits that the Christian faith does not have an exclusive right to the ascription of meaning, but this obtains also for secular forms of the ascription of meaning such as humanism. Is God then the 'ultimate concern' of each person? From the perspective of the Christian faith, yes, but this does not mean that the non-religious ascription of meaning as such must be viewed negatively. Stoker illustrates how the religious and the non-religious ascriptions of meaning are similar and how they differ. Both are intended to be the source of meaning for human questions of life and death. With respect to their differences the author demonstrates that the ascription of meaning from the perspective of the Christian faith does not entail a disqualification of a non-religious worldview but is intended to make people more human.
