The Sermon on the Mount
The Sermon on the Mount (January 1987)
Carl G. Vaught - Author

This book focuses on the Sermon on the Mount as the locus classicus of the teachings of Jesus. It argues that the Sermon is an expression of the divine perfection in which it is grounded.

Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science (June 1984)
Stanislav Grof - Editor

Recent advances in a variety of scientific disciplines have revealed the limitations of the Newtonian-Cartesian model of the universe.

The new research has led to a critical revaluation of ancient spiritual systems long ignored or rejected because of their assumed incompatibility with science.

He always has just the example he needs at his fingertips, a Tibetan Buddhist text nex...(Read More)
