Summary

The Lost Words of the Sufi Master and Father of Rumi 
Bahauddin, Rumi's father, was not only a major force in the development of Islamic spirituality, but also a deeply influential force in his son's life. In this, the first ever substantial English version of a wonderful but virtually unknown book, Bahauddin proves to be a daring, spiritual genius. His voice comes through the delightful, passionate craft of Coleman Barks, who transforms the Persian translations of John Moyne into fresh spiritual literature.

    Zen master Julian Daizan Skinner guides the reader through a sequence of meditation techniques that can safely lead even a complete novice through to advanced levels. Based on his own long experience of the Rinzai Zen tradition, as taught by the great seventeenth-century masters, Hakuin and Bankei, Daizan highlights the key points for success and addresses the pitfalls. Structured around a traditional teaching framework called "The two wings of a bird," Daizan clearly lays-out how these methods build and combine to create a transformative and sustaining practice. 
    
    The book contains an extremely useful section describing the experiences of western practitioners who have successfully applied this framework within the pressures of modern life. The final section features key source texts in translation, making the book a complete introduction and guide to Zen meditation. The work of a master, the book speaks at a deep level, with utmost simplicity.

    From award-winning author Debra Clopton comes the Texas Matchmakers series—about three older women who set off a nationally advertised "Wives Wanted Campaign" to bring women to their small town of Mule Hollow to marry the lonesome cowboys. A far fetched idea that's working—look out fellas, the women are coming one car at a time! 
    Dress store owner Ashby Templeton has provided many a wedding dress for the brides of Mule Hollow, Texas. Longing for love and a family of her own she hopes to need a wedding dress for herself one day soon. The problem is the only man in town showing any interest in her is the happy-go-lucky town flirt…exactly the opposite kind of man she’s looking for. The cowboy is gorgeous but she’s not looking for a hunk of burning love, but for a love that’ll burn for a lifetime. 
    Cowboy Dan Dawson’s past and his mom taught him was to smile often, it could change a life…or at least help someone loosen up a little. And if anyone in town needs to loosen up it’s the uptight Ashby. But she’s obviously not interested in anything he has to offer…good thing his past also taught him anything worth having is worth working for…

    The New World’s earliest Jewish immigrants and their unique, little-known history: A New York Times bestseller from the author of Life at the Dakota. In 1654, twenty-three Jewish families arrived in New Amsterdam (now New York) aboard a French privateer. They were the Sephardim, members of a proud orthodox sect that had served as royal advisors and honored professionals under Moorish rule in Spain and Portugal but were then exiled from their homeland by intolerant monarchs. A small, closed, and intensely private community, the Sephardim soon established themselves as businessmen and financiers, earning great wealth. They became powerful forces in society, with some, like banker Haym Salomon, even providing financial support to George Washington’s army during the American Revolution.   Yet despite its major role in the birth and growth of America, this extraordinary group has remained virtually impenetrable and unknowable to outsiders. From author of “Our Crowd” Stephen Birmingham, The Grandees delves into the lives of the Sephardim and their historic accomplishments, illuminating the insulated world of these early Americans. Birmingham reveals how these families, with descendants including poet Emma Lazarus, Barnard College founder Annie Nathan Meyer, and Supreme Court Justice Benjamin N. Cardozo, influenced—and continue to influence—American society.

    The complete collection of the WOLF short story serial (9 stories), plus 4 newly published short stories available only in the Collection. 
    How do you cope when your eyes are opened to the reality of monsters, and you've become one of them? 
    1 - WOLF: Turned - College student Tanya Sikes never believed in monsters. Though life has thrown her some difficult personal curve balls on occasion, she’s lived a sheltered life as far as the evil in the world at large. Nothing could’ve prepared her for being kidnapped or to meet the man who would rescue her from captivity too late to keep her from becoming one of the monsters. Why has God forsaken her? 
    2 - WOLF: Family - Tanya Sikes desires justice for the women who’ve died and closure for their frightened families. She’s still uncertain why God let her survive. Her family grieves, wondering what has become of her. She wants to reassure them, but how can she face them, knowing what she’s become? What will she tell them? Will they abandon her when they find out the truth? 
    3 - WOLF: Dark Moon - Rejected by frightened parents, Tanya has turned to the wolf and the forest for solace. A beast belongs in the woods, after all. Colin won’t leave her alone though, hovering close to watch over her. Further support comes from unexpected allies.... 
    4 - WOLF: Mate - Just when Tanya believes she's found safety and acceptance in a pack, fights break out all around her, and her well-being is threatened. 
    5 - WOLF: Rescue - More women missing, this time a child taken, too. Tanya must face what's been done to her. Even if the pack can find them, does she have the knowledge to help them survive? Will she crumble when she comes face-to-face with a man straight out of her nightmares? 
    6 - WOLF: Super Moon - Life should've settled down by now. At least, Tanya thinks so. The enemy no longer lingers on the periphery. If only she was truly free of him. Still dominated in her thoughts and emotions, she wants only to be free of him and free to love Colin as he deserves. The coming full moon brings a promise - to either repair damage wrought or complete the destruction. 
    7 - WOLF: Invader - There's a new wolf in town, and she has a rather sizable chip on her shoulder. Tanya doesn't let that deter her from issuing a warning though. The she-wolf brings a new possible threat, even as another arises on the Preserve. 
    8 - WOLF: Acceptance - Tanya continues to grieve for what she's lost, and it's creating difficulty in accepting what she's become. A new threat, with a cage, requires a choice - embrace what she is and give herself a chance to survive, or turn aside from it and suffer a fate worse than death. 
    9 - WOLF: Thanksgiving Moon - The November full moon brings a time of great change, and something unexpected. 
    Plus new additions, Ian, Donna, Brett & Kelly, and Farewell, Old Friend.

    A compelling account of years of spiritual investigations from the director of Life After Life, the award-winning documentary on near-death experiences. The stories of divine intervention in people’s everyday lives continued to occupy Peter Shockey’s thoughts even after his documentaries on the subject for Hallmark Channel and Discovery’s TLC had been completed and garnered awards and international acclaim.   In Miracles, Angels & Afterlife, Shockey shares the most compelling accounts he has gathered during his years of spiritual investigations and offers profound insight into what the increasing presence of the divine in daily life can mean in this, the first generation of the third millenium.   Beginning with his own personal story, Shockey goes on to introduce others who relate their miraculous experiences, ranging from visions of heaven to the presence of angels. He then puts these encounters in an enlightening context as he explores striking patterns of divine intervention in human history as well as in the Bible. In doing so, he takes readers on an unforgettable spiritual odyssey that will change the way they look at the here and now . . . and the hereafter.
