Dietrich von Hildebrand, widely regarded as one of the great Catholic philosophers of the 20th century, is well-known for his numerous books, but, until this present work, not much has been known of his remarkable and inspiring life. Written by his wife, Alice, also a highly respected Catholic thinker, this is a fascinating, moving and, at times, gripping account of a truly great man of the Church who suffered much for the faith. Based on a very long "letter" Dietrich wrote to his wife late in his life, it tells his story from his glorious youth with a unique intellectual and cultural formation, his coversion to Catholisism, his great passion for truth and beauty, his extensive writing on Christian philosophy and theology, and his steadfast, determined opposition to Nazism that made him a marked man who miraculously escaped execution. A powerful biography of a relentless fighter against injustice, a devoted son of the Church, a man who had the "soul of a lion". Illustrated.

" I am so happy to find you again, says the girl to the lion. I shouldn't have left you. I left because I was ignorant, I listened to my evil side, instead of my soul. I told everyone about you, but no one believed me, that you really existed, they all tried to tell me that you were not real, that you were devil, that you were just bad... Then, I started to remember your wise lessons more and more. The more they were saying bad about you, the more I wanted to come back to you, my Lion King. Now I found you back, and I will never leave you anymore. - I only exist for those who believe in me, my girl, says the lion.... Only for those who believe in me. I knew that you would come back one day. I was waiting for you. I wouldn't leave without seeing that someone carries on my kingdom, my wisdom, and my virtues. I am now ready to go, because I feel safe that you will carry on my way. I will always be with you, as I was even though you left me, cold-heartedly. I was sad, but I was still waiting that one day you would reappear, and here you are. Don't ever leave something that you know is right, just because you were hurt or full of emotion..." ............... Serena Ray, in her first book, describes the deepest feeling that gratitude could create in us, through a relationship between a lion and a girl lost in the middle of savanna. It is about what a girl could feel for a wise master that she met. She would never have thought that it would be the biggest event of her life. Serena Ray describes that there is no love without learning, there is no love without a master-disciple relationship, as there is no real love if we don't go deep enough to see who we really are. That is the only relationship, where we see that we are not as strong as we think we are, and finally see that we are not as weak as we think we are.

Skilled predators prized by hunters and cursed by ranchers, mountain lions are the wild soul of the American West. Now a wildlife biologist brings you nose to nose with the elusive cougar. Harley Shaw shares dramatic stories culled from his years of studying mountain lions, separating fact from myth regarding their habits while raising serious questions about mankind's relationship with this commanding creature. "Most of us move into the country because we love wildlife," writes Shaw. "But none of us will tolerate having our pets or children eaten. . . . When lion/human encounters occur, the lion (or bear, or wolf) always ultimately loses." Soul among Lions offers us a chance to consider the true meaning of that loss.

The ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus (340-271 BCE), though often despised for his materialism, hedonism, and denial of the immortality of the soul during many periods of history, has at the same time been a source of inspiration to figures as diverse as Vergil, Hobbes, Thomas Jefferson, and Bentham. This volume offers authoritative discussions of all aspects of Epicurus's philosophy and then traces out some of its most important subsequent influences throughout the Western intellectual tradition. Such a detailed and comprehensive study of Epicureanism is especially timely given the tremendous current revival of interest in Epicurus and his rivals, the Stoics. The thirty-one contributions in this volume offer an unmatched resource for all those wishing to deepen their knowledge of Epicurus' powerful arguments about happiness, death, and the nature of the material world and our place in it. At the same time, his arguments are carefully placed in the context of ancient and subsequent disputes, thus offering readers the opportunity of measuring Epicurean arguments against a wide range of opponents--from Platonists, Aristotelians and Stoics, to Hegel and Nietzsche, and finally on to such important contemporary philosophers as Thomas Nagel and Bernard Williams. The volume offers separate and detailed discussions of two fascinating and ongoing sources of Epicurean arguments, the Herculaneum papyri and the inscription of Diogenes of Oenoanda. Our understanding of Epicureanism is continually being enriched by these new sources of evidence and the contributors to this volume have been able to make use of them in presenting the most current understanding of Epicurus's own views. By the same token, the second half of the volume is devoted to the extraordinary influence of Epicurean doctrines, often either neglected or misunderstood, in literature, political thinking, scientific innovation, personal conceptions of freedom and happiness, and in philosophy generally. Taken together, the contributions in this volume offer the most comprehensive and detailed account of Epicurus and Epicureanism available in English.

Amidst the background of crocodile infested rivers, the threat of malaria and tsetse flies, of being eaten alive by wild animals and unpurged cannibals, the pleasures and difficulties, successes, and failures of a group of Methodist missionaries establishing a mission in the Congo feature prominently in this work covering the period 1914-1923.Told in ten short stories, one for each year, CELESTIAL FIRE: Tales of the Congo sends us to a time when Christianity was spreading in the dark continent. Although each story is complete in itself, when the stories are read in sequence, it reads somewhat like a novel, following the same people through a decade of intense activity.In the process, it shows us the forests, the huts and communities, and the unique people who breathed during the same period, along with most of the signatures and ways of life and old beliefs that were unique to them.

This is the original collection of my feelings about everything that I have lived to experience. My name is Osman Panda, a Sierra leonean by birth. I was born on September 24th 1952, in Wilberforce Freetown and married with 5 children. Attending the Wilberforce Primary school saw me going to the Prince of Wales secondary school in 1965. Dropping out of school in the 3rd form which is the equivalent of the 10th grade in 1968,I had another opportunity to go back to school working for a judge. In 1969, not able to satisfy his wifes draconian rules, I had to step down again until 1976 when a philanthropist came to my aid Mr. Sahr Martin Ngombu Gbolie of blessed memory founder and proprietor of Kono Model Academy, may his soul rest in peace. He offered me board and lodging and free tuition for two years, thereby helping me to graduate from high school in 1978.After graduating he offered me a teaching job. As a sports teacher and assistant teacher in government and religious knowledge, I served the school for two years and eventually went to the Milton Margais Teachers college in 1980. I majored in Physical Education graduating as the student of the year with a Higher Teachers Certifi cate in 1983. I taught for two more years in my former school, K M A. Through the grace of the almighty God I received a letter from the principal of the Bo Teachers College inviting me to join the Physical Education Department in 1985.That journey lasted until 1991 when I received another letter from the principal of the only boarding school in The Gambia at that time ,the Armitage High School. The most exciting and fruitful moments of my work experience was realized in that country. Through the efforts of my dear wife Comfort I eventually had the privilege to come to the US, where the idea of the PANDA POEMS WAS BORN.

'At the very heart of God is the passionate disposition to be in loving fellowship with you... From the human side of this equation it is meditative prayer that ushers us into this divine-human fellowship.' Richard Foster, bestselling author of CELEBRATION OF DISCIPLINE and founder of Renovaré, writes these words as one who has experienced what they describe. This new book gently guides you along the path of meditative prayer, so that you too can know a deeper fellowship with God. Weaving together quotes and stories from the lives of mothers and fathers of the faith as well as powerful encounters with God from his own life, Foster describes the riches of quieting your mind and heart in order to listen to and obey God more closely. Along the way, at his clearest, most practical best, he also provides the biblical teaching and step-by-step help you need to begin this prayer practice for yourself.
