Samuel Fleischacker offers a defense of 'revealed religion' - religions that regard a certain text or teaching as wholly authoritative over one's life. By reconciling it with secular cognitive and moral practices that allow people to work together regardless of religious difference, he shows how these two worldviews can be brought together.
The joyful news (Ev-angelia) that Jesus not only brought to humanity but mostly experienced for her sake, was spread out of necessity through symbolisms difficult to understand. So the New Testament might now seem to us (and indeed is) a seven-sealed book which is cautious in revealing its treasures. Yet, this shouldn’t discourage us but on the contrary should urge us in finally developing a living relationship with it; knowing with certainty that if we begin penetrating even a little into its mysteries, they will constitute for us invigorating waters which will quench our spirit’s thirst.
Divine Play is the story of the God realization of Shivabalayogi, one of the great spiritual masters of the 20th Century. It also describes how a yogi evokes spiritual awareness through direct experience.
