Summary

Six long years ago, Captain Reynolds Macy sailed away from his bride, looking forward to the day when he would return to Nantucket Island with a ship's hold full of whale oil. But when that momentous day finally arrives, Ren soon discovers that everything has changed in his absence. Everything. "Is nothing on this island as it appears to be?" he whispers in despair.Unlike most islanders, bold and spirited Daphne Coffin doesn't defer to Ren as an authoritative whalemaster, but sees through his aloofness to the aching heart beneath. She encourages him to return to his Quaker roots and "mind the Light," finding solace in God and community. As Ren becomes the man she believes him to be--honorable, wise, faithful--she finds herself falling in love with him.But how can she, when her heart is spoken for? Tristram Macy is Ren's business partner, cousin, and best friend--and Daphne's fiancé. Love always comes at a cost, but when is the price too high?Suzanne Woods Fisher welcomes readers back to the Quaker community on Nantucket Island for this riveting love story, full of unexpected moments.

    In an airplane news conference on his return from the Philippines in January 2015, Pope Francis mentioned Robert Hugh Benson’s Lord of the World and said, “I advise you to read it.” It wasn’t the first time the Holy Father had praised the book since becoming pope. This 1907 futuristic narrative has been hailed as the finest work of this unsung, but influential author and son of the Archbishop of Canterbury whose conversion to Catholicism rocked the Church of England in 1903. The compelling book includes a new introduction, a biography of Benson, and a theological reflection.
    
    Popular young adult books such as The Hunger Games and Divergent, as well as literary classics such as Walker Percy’s Love in the Ruins and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, have created a growing interest in dystopian novels. In one of the first such novels of the twentieth century, Robert Hugh Benson imagines a world where belief in God has been replaced by secular humanism. Lord of the World describes a world where Catholics are falling away and priests and bishops are defecting. Only a small remnant of the faithful remains. Julian Felsenburgh, a mysterious and compelling figure arises, promising peace in exchange for blind obedience. Those who resist are subjected to torture and execution. Soon the masses are in Felsenburgh’s thrall and he becomes leader of the world. Into this melee steps the novel’s protagonist, Fr. Percy Franklin. Dauntless and clear-sighted, Franklin is a bastion of stability as the Catholic Church in England disintegrates around him. Benson’s harrowing plot soon brings these two charismatic men into a final apocalyptic conflict.
    
    With an imagination to rival H. G. Wells and theological insight akin to G. K. Chesterton, Benson’s astute novel has captured the attention of many today, including Popes Benedict and Francis. This new edition makes it easily available and features an insightful introduction by Rev. Mark Bosco, S.J., a brief biography of Benson by Martyn Sampson, and a theological reflection by Rev. Michael Murphy, S.J.

    With over one hundred thousand years old in oral tradition, the upanishads reveal amazing formulas for life, secrets to abundance and a clear path to find real love. And yet, few are those who, to this day, were able to find the hidden secrets of these very ancient texts.
    
     
    This book is a reinterpretation of the upanishads, recreated for the modern world, a world that has changed so much in the latest thousands of years and keeps changing even more rapidly nowadays.
    
     
    In the following chapters, the reader will have the chance to finally understand very old secrets that reveal how life works, which laws are hidden behind the creation that God has put before our eyes, hidden behind the illusion, emotions and experiences that we encounter.
    
     
    Life is an adventure that few can fully experience and benefit from, but we can have everything we wish, without exception, we can be spiritual, have love, have more sex, have more wealth, have more friends, more happiness and more of everything and anything. The path to God is the path to anything our heart desires, and so, this book reveals such path, the theory of everything.
    
     
    The theory of everything is what some secret societies have named the Book of Nature, the law that guides all visible things, which means that, within the content of these pages, the reader finds an opportunity to learn about the mysteries of life in a very clear form, much more obvious than any modern world religion has ever allowed us to perceive.
    
     
    More than a book about spirituality, this is a book about life, success and purpose.
    
     
    If you ever wondered why we are here, what is the purpose of our existence, and why do we experience things in a certain way, you’ll easily fall in love with the answers provided in this reinterpretation, because they emerge from the awareness of the truth, a truth hidden deeply within our soul.
