Richard Rohr says about this book and its author that ""the only authors worth reading are those who have done their homework--the homework of their own life and the study of other great minds and hearts. Gus Gordon has done both. Here you will reap and enjoy the rewards. By showing the deep connections between solitude and solidarity, he reveals the very heart of the Gospel.""
Gus Gordon has learned from both Jesus and the Buddha how to use solitude to nurture compassion, freeing up the divine energy within to live in solidarity with others, experiencing the peace in life you share with others. This is a very practical book about how to bring high ideals of both great religious founders to your heart.
""Gordons book will speak--and it will speak powerfully--to the many of us who are struggling with the need to be nurtured by solitude and solidarity, action and contemplation, prophecy and mysticism, wisdom and love."" --Paul F. Knitter, Union Theological Seminary, New York

Embracing Solitude focuses on the interior turn of monasticism and scans the Christian tradition for women who have made this turn in various epochs and circumstances. New Monasticism is a movement assuming diverse forms in response to the turn to classical spiritual sources for guidance about living spiritual commitment with integrity and authenticity today. Genuine spiritual seeking requires the cultivation of an inner disposition to return to the room of the heart. The lessons explored in this book from women spiritual entrepreneurs across the centuries will benefit contemporay New Monastics--both women and men. The accounts will inspire, challenge, and guide those who follow in the footsteps of the renowned spiritual innovators profiled here.

This is the extended and annotated edition including * an extensive annotation of more than 10.000 words about the history and basics of Buddhism * many illustrations * an interactive table-of-contents * perfect formatting for electronic reading devices The best evidence that this book characterizes the spirit of Buddhism correctly can be found in the welcome it has received throughout the entire Buddhist world. It has even been officially introduced in Buddhist schools and temples of Japan and Ceylon. The eminent feature of the work is its grasp of the difficult subject and the clear enunciation of the doctrine of the most puzzling problem of ātman, as taught in Buddhism. So far as we have examined the question of ātman ourselves from the works of the Southern canon, the view taken by Dr. Paul Cams is accurate, and we venture to think that it is not opposed to the doctrine of Northern Buddhism.

Franziskus fordert gerne einmal "Gesichter von freudigen Menschen", der Papst hält Freude für ein zentrales Element im Leben. Das hat er in seinen Werken, Ansprachen und Predigten immer wieder klargemacht. In seinem Lehrschreiben "Freut euch und jubelt" formuliert er neue Gedanken dazu und verbindet sie auf originelle Weise mit dem Begriff der "Heiligkeit". Heiligkeit als etwas, zu dem jeder von uns berufen ist, zu einem erfüllten und gelingenden Leben. Franziskus spricht über unseren konkreten Alltag, über die Herausforderungen und Sorgen, aber eben auch eine Freude, die das Leben durchzieht und trägt. Die Gedanken des Papstes sind ein kostbarer Schlüssel zum Evangelium, das als Botschaft nicht nur froh, sondern auch Freude macht, und das Franziskus uns so neu aufschließt. Sein persönliches Lob der "Mittelschicht der Heiligkeit", eine päpstliche Ode an die Freude und ein inspirierendes Werk für alle - Christen und Nichtchristen.

John Keenan's 'The Gospel of Mark' is a radically new reading of this most intriguing of the Synoptic gospels - a remarkable feat in the face of the explosion of Markan scholarship over the last twenty years. Keenan accomplishes this by approaching Mark as no other scholar has done: through the lens of Mahayana-Buddhist philosophy. This view stresses the emptying of all preconceived notions of how to begin reading as well as reclamation of such notions in terms of dependent co-arising and Jesus' assault on the validity of conventional religiosity. 'The Gospel of Mark' displays an alternative hermeneutical procedure, one generated by the Mahayana understanding of the function of text and doctrine, and informed by Mahayana philosophy. Part One of 'The Gospel of Mark' provides an overview of different interpretive techniques in Markan scholarship. It describes and argues for the validity of a Buddhist approach to this charter document of the Christian Gospel. Here the author demonstrates a profound grasp not only of scriptural scholarship but of Mahayana philosophy. Keenan discusses themes such as Mark's elliptical style and the journeying that provides the impetus for the narrative, and explores them through the lens of emptiness and dependent co-arising which are the focal points of a Mahayana reading. In Part Two Keenan gives the reader truly fresh insights into the paradoxical world of Mark's Jesus. Through a Buddhist lens, the text offers startling and new perspectives on Jesus himself, the experience of the Kingdom, miracle stories and parables, the passion and death, the resurrection and return.
