Is the brain gateway to the soul? Is mind, spirit and soul are the same thing? What are the philosophical and theological perspectives of the soul? What is the connection between the brain and mind/soul/spirit? In Spiritual Mechanics author Dr Tanzia Mustafa delves in to the human mental processes in search of a distinctive programming or pattern indicative of a purpose. In this discussion, she looks for common grounds of pihilosophy, religion and modern science to describe mental phenomenon. She surmises that the modern-day scientific approach might not lead to answers, but perhaps the approach of the ancients might. She chronicles her quest and findings in Spiritual Mechanics. Dr Mustafa analyzes popular theories, such as the theory of evolution. She looks at the ideas of the philosophers, ideas of religions and modern scientific advances then delves deep to establish the presence of a Higher mind or the mind of God. In conclusion, Dr Mustafa determines, in light of modern science, there is a purpose to human existence.
Secrets They Don’t Want You to Know about Understanding and Processing Emotions

Many people wonder what makes relationships work or why they often don’t work, and how we can make them work; but everyone knows, somehow, how to keep a relationship, either it lasts a few weeks, months or years; everyone knows, at the very least, some principles about love; and yet, because such principles don’t apply in modern times and for most individuals, we still witness an increasing number of breakups and divorces, and this while gradually, more and more people, basically, keep on quitting putting the efforts to change themselves. On the other hand, what kind of efforts should people really be looking forwards to? Which studies truly help anyone in understanding what love is from a spiritual point of view? For as we barely started to comprehend what love is at a chemical level, a long way is needed to get the answers this book offers. Now, the majority of the people do believe they are putting the right efforts in their relationships, most of which focusing on communication; and yet, they also admit that they don’t feel understood by their partner. And although communication is indeed the basis of any relationship, there are many other factors interfering with it, reason why we are never satisfied with our results. The whole world of energies around us and within us, manifests as well in our emotions, and that’s why, sometimes, we also feel like we can’t communicate with some persons. In order to do that effectively, we would have to understand this energy field; for there are spiritual laws and chemical principles that operate in the physical world too; and if we understand them, we can understand our relationships better. Once we apprehend these principles well enough, and put them to use accordingly, they will feel natural to us, because, indeed, they are; and as you will see here, because these manifestations are occurring all the time, you will know too what to do in the right moment once noticing the information being displayed in your reality.
The Spiritual Mechanics of life is a devotional study of 76 verses from 2 Corinthians where Paul defines for us a number of spiritual values and principles every follower of Jesus was meant to incorporate into their lives. This 65 day devotional has been designed for contemplative reading. Since it presents 76 Core Values and Principles that help to define what the Biblical idea of being or living in Christ, someone might enjoy focusing in on a single day's study for a couple of days to let it soak in before moving on to the next day's study. The reference index of the Core Values and Principles at the back of the book is an essential tool to help locate those particular studies you may want to reference later. Each of these studies is an extension of what was meant to be the Primary Core Value of every believer: a Passionate Proclamation of the Gospel!

The Spirit Ambulance is a journey into decision-making at the end of life in Thailand, where families attempt to craft good deaths for their elders in the face of clashing ethical frameworks, from a rapidly developing universal medical system, to national and global human-rights politics, to contemporary movements in Buddhist metaphysics. Scott Stonington's gripping ethnography documents how Thai families attempt to pay back a "debt of life" to their elders through intensive medical care, followed by a medically assisted rush from the hospital to home to ensure a spiritually advantageous last breath. The result is a powerful exploration of the nature of death and the complexities arising from the globalization of biomedical expertise and ethics around the world.

Author: Beau Crosetto
Publisher: InterVarsity Press
We love to share good news with the world—a great restaurant, a coveted promotion, a new baby—and that makes us evangelists for many things. So why don't we do the same with Jesus? Simply put, talking about Jesus is awkward. Yet when we brave the awkwardness, we see God work. Beau Crosetto helps us move out of our comfort zones and beyond the awkwardness to share the life-transforming power of God with others.

Ray Kurzweil is the inventor of the most innovative and compelling technology of our era, an international authority on artificial intelligence, and one of our greatest living visionaries. Now he offers a framework for envisioning the twenty-first century--an age in which the marriage of human sensitivity and artificial intelligence fundamentally alters and improves the way we live. Kurzweil's prophetic blueprint for the future takes us through the advances that inexorably result in computers exceeding the memory capacity and computational ability of the human brain by the year 2020 (with human-level capabilities not far behind); in relationships with automated personalities who will be our teachers, companions, and lovers; and in information fed straight into our brains along direct neural pathways. Optimistic and challenging, thought-provoking and engaging, The Age of Spiritual Machines is the ultimate guide on our road into the next century. From the Trade Paperback edition.

In the words of author Greg Heisler, “Spirit-Led Preaching is a call issued to preachers, pastors, and teachers of homiletics to recover the Holy Spirit for expository preaching in the same way we have recovered the biblical text. . . . My plan for doing this is to recover the doctrine of pneumatology (the study of spiritual beings/phenomena) for our theology of preaching, resulting in a renewed emphasis on the powerful combination of Word and Spirit working together as the catalyst for powerful expository preaching.” Heisler thoroughly examines how the Holy Spirit illuminates and empowers the preacher, opens the hearts of the hearers, and applies the message to their lives. Indeed, to ignore the Holy Spirit’s role in sermon preparation and delivery would be a considerable oversight.
