  • God Collar

    "for those of us with the God shaped hole"

    Overall

    As neither believer nor atheist but still left with the uncertain doubt that there probably shouldn't be quite such a void where God or Selfish Arrogance sit in others. I was delighted to learn I wasn't alone and Marcus's comic style enlightened and refreshing.



    Whether you're certain or not about the whole God question this is a truly entertaining listen.

    I'm a bit of a Marcus Brigstocke fan, I have to say... I love the way he has a good old rant, and tend to agree with his views. In the past, when I've heard him on religion, he has tended to be very negative, so I was surprised that this reading is a lot more balanced than I would have expected. One thing to watch out for though is if you're the kind of person to get a song on the brain, you may be singing away for a while after listening to this one. I had a few nights trying to get to sleep with the song he keeps singing going round and round in my head and cursing Mr Brigstocke!

In this course, Professor Peters leads listeners through a comprehensive study of each of these fundamentally monotheistic religious communities. As he concludes, only by understanding their similarities and differences can we hope to make sense of the politics of religion which continue to fuel conflicts throughout the world.

    A practical approach to creating wealth-based on the established principles of ancient Jewish wisdom-made accessible to people of all backgrounds. The ups and downs of the economy prove Rabbi Daniel Lapin's famous principle that the more things change, the more we need to depend upon the things that never change. There's no better source for both practical and spiritual financial wisdom than the time-tested knowledge found in the ancient Jewish faith and its culture.

    Israel Meir Lau, one of the youngest survivors of Buchenwald, was just eight years old when the camp was liberated in 1945. Descended from a 1,000-year unbroken chain of rabbis, he grew up to become Chief Rabbi of Israel--and like many of the great rabbis, Lau is a master storyteller. Out of the Depths is his harrowing, miraculous, and inspiring account of life in one of the Nazis' deadliest concentration camps, and how he managed to survive against all possible odds.

    It is a story like no other: an epic of endurance against destruction, of creativity in oppression, joy amidst grief, the affirmation of life against the steepest of odds. It spans the millennia and the continents - from India to Andalusia and from the bazaars of Cairo to the streets of Oxford. It takes you to unimagined places: to a Jewish kingdom in the mountains of southern Arabia; a Syrian synagogue glowing with radiant wall paintings; the palm groves of the Jewish dead in the Roman catacombs.

    Martin Buber's I and Thou has long been acclaimed as a classic. Many prominent writers have acknowledged its influence on their work; students of intellectual history consider it a landmark; and the generation born after World War II considers Buber one of its prophets. Buber's main proposition is that we may address existence in two ways: (1) that of the "I" toward an "It," toward an object that is separate in itself, which we either use or experience; (2) that of the "I" toward "Thou," in which we move into existence in a relationship without bounds.

    Experience a practical, uplifting, and fascinating introduction to a time-honored system of spiritual growth and self-discovery. The Kabbalah, Judaism's timeless mystical tradition, was said to be brought down from heaven by angels. Its teachings were originally passed down by word of mouth because mystics believed its secrets transcended the written word. Rabbi David Cooper's Kabbalah Meditation continues this great oral tradition.

But is it possible that the understanding of the book of Genesis we've all grown up with isn't as complete as we'd like to believe? That its deceptively simple sentences and surface appearance hide from contemporary readers a purposeful and intricate structure designed to let its depth and detail and implication resonate with the readers and listeners of its own time?.

That, however, was just the beginning of his spiritual journey and study of world religions. He is spoken of as the "Father" of the Jewish Renewal movement-a post-Holocaust, non-Orthodox Jewish movement that blends kabbalistic and Hasidic elements, while also integrating other practices such as meditation, chant and dance, as well as borrowed elements of Buddhism, Sufism and Christian mysticism.

    When the prophet Ezekiel described his great vision of a holy chariot flashing like lightning, with eyes all around, he bequeathed to us a mystical tradition that has endured 2,500 years. For Judaism's first mystics, this chariot was a vehicle leading to the Upper Worlds and the Throne of God, states of supreme awareness that unify all of creation with the divine. Now this original system for reaching beyond the heavens is fully revealed on Rabbi David A. Cooper's Seeing Through the Eyes of God.

    An American journalist named Ben Harris, who works for Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA), is traveling the world in search of stories about Jews in their various communities. This lively interview with Harris, the "Wandering Jew", about his travels and traveling, was done mostly by email, with two conversations via webcam on Skype. When this writer spoke to Harris off the record for background, he was in the Jewish Telegraphic Agency offices in New York City, but the reported interview via email comes mostly while he was abroad.
