BOOK EXCERPT:

Is contemporary art a friend or foe of Christianity? Art historian, critic, and curator Daniel Siedell, addresses this question and presents a framework for interpreting art from a Christian worldview in God in the Gallery: A Christian Embrace of Modern Art. As such, it is an excellent companion to Francis Schaeffer's classic Art and the Bible. Divided into three parts--"Theology," "History," and "Practice"--God in the Gallery demonstrates that art is in conversation with and not opposed to the Christian faith. In addition, this book is beautifully enhanced with images from such artists as Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Enrique Martínez Celaya, and others. Readers of this book will include professors, students, artists, and anyone interested in Christianity and culture.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This is the true story of a self-confessed sexual zealot who, while satisfying his lust with bar girls in Hong Kong, Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand, is compelled by the intensity of his libido to find its deeper meaning through Tantra. Tantra teaches that the fast track to enlightenment and to ‘God’, is not celibacy as Buddha and Jesus taught, but Maithuna or sacred sex. In Tantra, Go-Go dancers and escorts are avatars of the goddess Shakti and can be used as spiritual rocket fuel. His love of women eventually persuades him to marry a Thai girl that creates an impossible dilemma in his life. He is torn between his love for one woman and his insatiable need for Go-Go dancers, who in Thailand are beautiful, affordable, and abundant. He fears his sex utopia in Thailand is threatened by the Islamic insurgency in the south. Beneath the face of tourist paradise, Thailand is afflicted with divisive political and religious unrest. Thailand is waiting for the new Buddha to return to establish a golden age of peace. But Buddha is not coming back and only the sex gods of Tantra can save Thailand. Only the sex gods can save the world.

BOOK EXCERPT:

India is a timeless land of dynamic change and huge diversity. The social and political evolution over the centuries has greatly enriched the Indian culture and has given rise to great traditions and heritage. Its glorious history tells the tales of its prosperity despite destruction due to invasion by outside forces. This prosperity shines all over India especially, in palaces, temples and in many other monuments. More spectacular are the ruins of ancient India, which are still surviving to eagerly tell their stories to the patient listeners. The beauty of the sculptures and temple architecture of India are unparalleled; so are its natural beauty and its wild life. This book presents the travel experience of a couple that visits India to rediscover and explore the glorious vistas of the bygone era. They attempt to unravel the marvels of ancient India by digging inio the history, mythology and legends of every place they visit. This book is essentially a collection of travel stories presented in the fashion of a fiction, but with authentic facts and figures. Starting from the capital New Delhi and the exotic Himalayan towns of Haridwar and Hrishikesh, the travel continues to the colourful state of Orissa and then to the historical wonders and the magnificent sites of Karnataka and finally to the fascinating state of Tamil Nadu that gleams with vibrant spirituality around its countless temples. The reader will roam freely in the ruins, in the palaces and among the gorgeous temples with towering gopurams. The classic account of these travels allows the reader to stand up in a place where the present meets the past bridging time and space and surmounting all barriers, and to behold the most impressive evidence of the creative ability of the human mind.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Without allure, we’d be bored to death and yet it can take us in so completely we forget who we are and where we live and what we are striving for. The allure of the mythical good life makes dupes of us all. The orchid blooms and we’re seduced.Window Gods draws us into the many lives of Isobel as artist, mother, daughter, sister, wife and friend. In the midst of a life that tugs her in all directions Isobel is rammed sideways – her half-sister has brought a law suit against her, her peers are criticising her, and her brother-in-law has been diagnosed with cancer.Then her son disappears.In a modern-day Middlemarch, Isobel sets off to Afghanistan in search of her missing child while bush fires rage on her home horizon.Incisive, witty and wise, Window Gods captures the chaos and contradictions of contemporary life and death with Morrison’s shrewd insight, dry humour and inimitable style.Morrison is unusual among contemporary Australian novelists ... She is unafraid of ideas; her work reveals a quirky independence, a reluctance to follow fashion, besides shrewd insights into what makes human beings tick. Andrew RiemerAn award-winning author of novels, short stories, a play and a biography, Sally Morrison originally trained as a molecular biologist before launching a rich and varied writing career. In 2013 she travelled to Afghanistan as an observer with the Afghan–Australian Development Organisation.
