Books Description:

Another life-altering quest, another struggle between honor and lust for power, another generation of warriors forging alliances and enmities. The adventure, romance, and artistry of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon continues in this novelized companion to the first ever Netflix debut film, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny based on the novel by Wang Dulu. Seventeen years after the legendary fighter Mubai dies protecting the world-conquering sword The Green Destiny, four great warriors are called together to guard the formidable weapon once more. The forces surrounding the sword irrevocably altered the life of Shulien, Mubai's lover, but seventeen years later she is still honor-bound to defend the blade from the power-hungry warlord Hades Dai. The young fighters Wei-fang and Snow Vase, switched at birth, also have heritages and inheritances that inextricably link them to both each other and the fate of the sword. And Silent Wolf, Shulien's former fiancé, returns from presumed death to thwart Hades Dai—and rekindle an emotionally isolated Shulien's feelings. Jam-packed with all the hallmarks of an epic adventure—sacrifice, battles, betrayal, vengeance, redemption, and destiny—this saga also explores the deeper meaning of true heroism and virtue. As Wei-fang and Snow Vase search for identity and forge their places in the world of warriors and heroes, Shu-lien and Silent Wolf struggle to reconcile both the traditions and heartbreak of the past with a fragile hope for the future.

Books Description:

The “monumental” New York Times bestseller in which a Catholic explores the problem of anti-Semitism through Church history (The Washington Post). A Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year and a New York Times Notable Book In this “masterly history” (Time), National Book Award-winning author James Carroll maps the profoundly troubling two-thousand-year course of the Church’s battle against Judaism and faces the crisis of faith it has provoked in his own life as a Catholic. More than a chronicle of religion, this dark history is the central tragedy of Western civilization, its fault lines reaching deep into our culture. The Church’s failure to protest the Holocaust — the infamous “silence” of Pius XII — is only part of the story: the death camps, Carroll shows, are the culmination of a long, entrenched tradition of anti-Judaism. From Gospel accounts of the death of Jesus on the cross, to Constantine’s transformation of the cross into a sword, to the rise of blood libels, scapegoating, and modern anti-Semitism, Carroll reconstructs the dramatic story of the Church’s conflict not only with Jews but with itself. Yet in tracing the arc of this narrative, he implicitly affirms that it did not necessarily have to be so. There were roads not taken, heroes forgotten; new roads can be taken yet. Demanding that the Church finally face this past in full, Carroll calls for a fundamental rethinking of the deepest questions of Christian faith. Only then can Christians, Jews, and all who carry the burden of this history begin to forge a new future. “Carroll discusses the history of Christian-Jewish relations honestly, touchingly, and personally…Carroll investigates his own prejudices as a believing Christian, a former Catholic priest, and a long-time civil rights activist. As he unearths history (using all the best sources), he also encounters emotions he didn't realize he had and shows how his historical journey was also a personal pilgrimage of faith.”—Booklist “A triumph.”—Atlantic Monthly

Books Description:

On the day Elaina’s life changed forever, her morning was like any other. She rose to the sounds of water rolling onto the beach and the cacophony of seabirds screeching, “Good morning, Elaina!” By the next morning, Elaina was an orphan, whisked away to London, England, to be raised by Beatrice and Avery Crawford. And as dark as the intervening night was, so too were Elaina’s memories of the once-glorious childhood as the much-loved daughter of Mirana, an elf, and Ventor, a vampire. You see, dear reader, for better or for worse, Elaina’s mind was enchanted by an all-encompassing memory spell, albeit temporary. Thus begins Book One of The Enchanted Destiny Chronicles: The Sword of the Sands written by first-time novelist, Josh Katz. Now, like many magical stories, the beginning goes back a long way. Our story goes back a long way, some six thousand years, when the forces of good defeated the forces of evil in a monumental battle. And as you continue to read Book One, and as Elaina’s memories begin to return, you will join Elaina and her newfound friends as they solve magical puzzles, battle creatures of darkness, fight in Bound Battle, and oh, so much more as they come face-to-face with their enchanted destiny while seeking The Sword of the Sands.

Books Description:

Myths are our collective dreams, our inspiration and our aspiration; they are the sacred stories that guide us in living a conscious life. One of the most beloved myths of the West is that of King Arthur and his Companions of the Round Table, and we find in this work that the spiritual teachings embodied in this myth are the same as those of the chakra system of the East. Both map the development of human consciousness from conception to self-realization. Arthur of Britain transports us to the landscape and the time of King Arthur while opening our hearts to the power of myth to transcend time and space. A retelling of some of the legends correlates the events of Arthurs life with the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual challenges that he, and we, encounter at each chakra. Guided meditations use the archetypal symbols in the myth to help us negotiate those challenges, and bring into consciousness the wisdom and self-healing power that we all carry within. This work is a valuable contribution to both the spiritual and mythological literature as it provides a bridge between the two and highlights the similarities, rather than the differences, of diverse traditions.
