Summary

The truest treasure is found deep in the heart. Back in her beloved Virginia, Shannon Adair loved nursing injured soldiers back to health. But in Grand Coeur, Idaho—the rough-and-tumble place where her father has been called to lead the church—she's not sure where she fits in. Then a critically ill woman arrives, and Shannon knows her place at last: to care for this dear woman and ease her pain. Matthew Dubois is the fastest and most reliable stagecoach driver on Wells Fargo's payroll. But his widowed sister is dying and he's about to inherit his young nephew. So he takes a job at the Wells Fargo express office in Grand Coeur until he can find the one thing he needs to get back to driving: a wife to care for the boy. What neither of them knows is that God is at work behind the scenes—and is lovingly bringing them together to discover the true desires of their hearts.

    The timeless wisdom of an ancient Stoic can                 become a companion for your own spiritual journey.              
    Stoicism is often portrayed as a                 cheerless, stiff-upper-lip philosophy of suffering and doom.                 Yet as experienced through the thoughtful and penetrating                 writings of Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius (121–180 CE),                 the Stoic approach to life is surprisingly rich, nuanced,                 clear-eyed and friendly.              
    With facing-page commentary that explains                 the texts for you, Russell McNeil, PhD, guides you through key                 passages from Aurelius’s Meditations, comprised of the                 emperor’s collected personal journal entries, to uncover                 the startlingly modern relevance his words have today. From                 devotion to family and duty to country, to a near-prophetic                 view of the natural world that aligns with modern physics,                 Aurelius’s words speak as potently today as they                 did two millennia ago.              
    Now you can discover the tenderness,                 intelligence and honesty of Aurelius’s writings with no                 previous background in philosophy or the classics. This                 SkyLight Illuminations edition offers insightful and engaging                 commentary that explains the historical background of Stoicism,                 as well as the ways this ancient philosophical system can offer                 psychological and spiritual insight into your contemporary                 life. You will be encouraged to explore and challenge                 Aurelius’s ideas of what makes a fulfilling                 life—and in so doing you may discover new ways of                 perceiving happiness.

    There can be no perfecting above without the perfecting influence of humans when they are righteous and act from love. (Zohar 2:155a) 
     
    The Essence of Kabbalah explains the mysticism of the Torah and the other books in the Hebrew Bible, and presents an overview of the historical trends that have shaped Kabbalah as it is known today. It examines the interpretative methods that are viewed as unlocking the secrets of the Torah - those teachings that point to the inner fabric of creation. 
     
    Acclaimed author Brian Lancaster explores key extracts from the seminal works of Kabbalah - the Sefer Yetsirah, the Bahir and the Zohar, and presents the major teachings of influential kabbalists. He places Kabbalah in the context of Judaism as a whole, and illustrates the ways in which Judiasm's teachings, prayers and rituals express a concealed inner tradition. 
     
    Further, he shows how contemporary scholarship and science are enabling a creative dialogue with the ancient teachings preserved within Kabbalah, leading to a twenty-first century renaissance in the importance of mysticism for providing a much-needed and profound sense of connectedness and purpose in our world.
