Pub Date: 28 Mar 2022
Imprint: Veritas Books
Description:
One of the themes that echoes most frequently through Laudato Si', Pope Francis' landmark publication on the environment, is the central role of biodiversity in creation spirituality, because the 'diing of the rainbow of life's diversity' has a significance that goes way beyond our concern for its impact upon our human welfare. This is the result of a deepening awareness of the role of every living species in God’s unfolding plan. Every Bush Aflame is an extended reflection on this profoundly central theme.

From Jerusalem to Delhi, through Persia Cover
Format: Paperback
Pages: 338
ISBN: 9781463244064
Pub Date: 06 Jan 2022
Imprint: Gorgias Press
Description:
Why are Jews so attracted to India, to Hinduism, and to Buddhism in the United States as well as Israel? They travel there by the thousands, attracted by the exoticism of course, but, Adelman believes, also drawn by an atavistic connection, dating back to the great Persian empires that extended from the land of Israel to the Indian subcontinent, linking the religions, myths, legends, literature, customs, even languages over the centuries. Influenced by her own profoundly mystical experiences, Adelman provides the history, explains the religions, shows the common origins, and gives astonishing examples of parallel symbolism.

An ideal gift for seasoned Irish speakers, as well as those coming to the language for the first time, Daily Wisdom is a perfect introduction to the untold riches of the Irish proverb tradition.
