📒The Secret Door ✍ J. A. Warrick
✏The Secret Door Book Summary : When Jesus said, Seek and you will find; ask and the door will be opened, he was literally pointing the way for each and every one of us to find the secret door within. Find out why doing this is so important; why the scriptures, which spoke of the need for this, were banned and hidden so many centuries ago, and why seeking understanding of everything Jesus said is more important now than ever before. Find out who the fallen angels were (and are), when they are likely to return, and why, in the words of the apostle Paul, its imperative to ... take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. (Ephesians 6:13)That evil day is much nearer than most people realize. It is, in fact, nearly upon us.
📒The Secret Books Of The Egyptian Gnostics ✍ Jean Doresse
✏The Secret Books of the Egyptian Gnostics Book Summary : "Jean Doresse's book was originally published in 1958 as the first authoritative description of the now famous cache of Egyptian Gnostic writings known as the Nag-Hammadi Library or, as Doresse calls it, the Chenoboskion Library. Despite the forty plus years since publication, a more readable and thorough introduction to the material is not to be found. Until the Nag-Hammadi discovery, the Gnostics were thought to be no more than a heretical splinter group of early Christianity with particularly bizarre cosmologies and licentious sexual practices. Hardly surprising given that most of what we knew about the various sects of Gnostics came from their rivals, the Christians. Doresse thoroughly reviews what was known of Gnosticism before these writings of theirs were unearthed. As one of the original discoverers of these texts, his first person account of their unearthing, acquisition, and identification is quite engaging. A physical description of the books then is given. Finally he launches into a discussion of the texts themselves, and what they reveal to us of Gnostic belief and practice"--Amazon.com.
📒Classical Antiquity In Heavy Metal Music ✍ K. F. B. Fletcher
✏Classical Antiquity in Heavy Metal Music Book Summary : This book demonstrates the rich and varied ways in which heavy metal music draws on the ancient Greek and Roman world. Bands from across the globe, including Italy's Stormlord and Heimdall, Greece's Kawir, Switzerland's Eluveitie and Celtic Frost, Norway's Theatre of Tragedy, Sweden's Therion, Germany's Blind Guardian, Canada's Ex Deo and the UK's Iron Maiden and Bal-Sagoth, are all discussed in this volume. These and other bands are shown to draw inspiration from classical literature and mythology such as Homer's Iliad, Virgil's Aeneid and Caesar's Gallic Wars and from historical peoples such as the Scythians, ancient Egyptians and Roman emperors. These interactions are often concerned with the nature of paganism, the occult and barbarism, nationalism, the conflict between East and West, and the development of powerful evocations of brutality and femininity. The contributors frequently weave in comparisons with the reception of antiquity in painting and literature to show how the genre of heavy metal brings its own perspectives to classical reception but also shows strands of continuity of practice. They show how this musical genre – often dismissed as lowbrow – engages in sophisticated dialogue with ancient texts, myths, and historical figures, revealing aspects of Classics' continued appeal while also arguing that the engagement with myth and history is a defining characteristic of heavy metal music, especially in countries that were once part of the Roman Empire.
📒The Gospel Of Mary Magdalene ✍ Jean-Yves Leloup
✏The Gospel of Mary Magdalene Book Summary : Restores to the forefront of the Christian tradition the importance of the divine feminine • The first complete English-language translation of the original Coptic Gospel of Mary, with line-by-line commentary • Reveals the eminence of the divine feminine in Christian thought • Offers a new perspective on the life of one of the most controversial figures in the Western spiritual tradition Perhaps no figure in biblical scholarship has been the subject of more controversy and debate than Mary Magdalene. Also known as Miriam of Magdala, Mary Magdalene was considered by the apostle John to be the founder of Christianity because she was the first witness to the Resurrection. In most theological studies she has been depicted as a reformed prostitute, the redeemed sinner who exemplifies Christ's mercy. Today's reader can ponder her role in the gospels of Philip, Thomas, Peter, and Bartholomew--the collection of what have come to be known as the Gnostic gospels rejected by the early Christian church. Mary's own gospel is among these, but until now it has remained unknown to the public at large. Orthodox theologian Jean-Yves Leloup's translation of the Gospel of Mary from the Coptic and his thorough and profound commentary on this text are presented here for the first time in English. The gospel text and the spiritual exegesis of Leloup together reveal unique teachings that emphasize the eminence of the divine feminine and an abiding love of nature over the dualistic and ascetic interpretations of Christianity presented elsewhere. What emerges from this important source text and commentary is a renewal of the sacred feminine in the Western spiritual tradition and a new vision for Christian thought and faith throughout the world.
