    An inspiring in-depth look at the nineteenth-century Godman of India and Prophet of Harmony.                 
    Sri Ramakrishna, one of the greatest                 spiritual personalities of our time, is widely recognized as                 the Prophet of the Harmony of Religions. After perfecting the                 practice of several religions—including Christianity,                 Islam and various traditions of Hinduism—he declared,                 “As many faiths, so many paths.”             
    For the first time, two classic                 biographies—Dhan Gopal Mukerji’s The Face of                 Silence (1926) and Swami Nikhilananda’s Sri Ramakrishna                 (1942)—are brought together to provide a fuller                 understanding of the life and spiritual significance of Sri                 Ramakrishna as well as the systems of Indian religious thought                 intimately connected with him. Pairing legend with fact, memory                 with history, this unique volume—including an                 Introduction to Sri Ramakrishna’s God-consciousness by                 Swami Adiswarananda—succeeds in intimately examining the                 teachings of Sri Ramakrishna and conveying the true story of                 this great mystic, whose leaping flame of spiritual realization                 continues to influence the modern spiritual search.

    What happens when life begins to trip us up and failure starts creeping in? Many of us just keep on doing the same thing, hoping for different results. Some of us look for escape, to find a way out of the mess we feel that we've created. But neither enduring nor escaping is ultimately what we need.The answer is to allow ourselves to begin again, every day, in every part of our lives. Through engaging, lyrical prose, Leeana Tankersley shows women how to forgive themselves, develop new and healthier patterns of living, and do away with resentment and regret. Her life-giving words will free women who are feeling stuck and allow them to clear out the debris to make room for what God wants to do in their lives. To begin again is to open the window, even a crack, to let the breeze of grace come in. It is a call to stop running from our fears. To take one small step toward becoming the brave women we were made to be.

    Strangers in Port-au-Prince are united in the corruption, fear, and revolt of Duvalier-era Haiti in “the most interesting novel of [Greene’s] career” (The Nation).   Haiti, under the rule of Papa Doc and his menacing paramilitary, the Tontons Macoute, has long been abandoned by tourists. Now it is home to corrupt capitalists, foreign ambassadors and their lonely wives—and a small group of enterprising strangers rocking into port on the Dutch cargo ship, Medea: a well-meaning pair of Americans claiming to bring vegetarianism to the natives; a former jungle fighter in World War II Burma and current confidence man; and an English hotelier returning home to the Trianon, an unsalable shell of an establishment on the hills above the capital. Each is embroiled in a charade. But when they’re unsuspectingly bound together in this nightmare republic of squalid poverty, torrid love affairs, and impending violence, their masks will be stripped away.   “While Mr. Greene . . . specialized in chronicling the moral and political murkiness he encountered in the third world . . . nowhere did he produce a more topical or damning work of fiction than [in The Comedians]” (The New York Times). Banned in Haiti, and condemned by Papa Doc Duvalier, it was adapted by Greene into a 1967 film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
