Stillness the Dancing Macmillan Bello

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Abandoned by God and her husband, twin totems of her life to date, Morna Gordon embarks on a voyage of discovery, travelling first to California where she undergoes a series of extraordinary experiences, ending up in Disneyland, 'the happiest place on earth' -- though not for her. Shaken, she flees to a near-deserted island in the Hebrides where David, historian and researcher, is working on the Life of a seventh-century saint. Morna, translator by profession, has to learn, through David and his saint, a new interpretation of the world. Her contribution to his work helps forge a powerful bond between them, and slowly, movingly, and despite the still smarting slap-down of the Catholic Church, they discover body as well as soul. The novel also explores the lives of Morna's mother and daughter, charting Bea's private crisis of faith and Chris's stormy journey to maturity. Complex ties and tensions bind these three generations of women, all of whom suffer a 'sea-change'. The Stillness The Dancing juxtaposes youth with age, the rational with the numinous, subatomic physics with ancient pagan ritual, the grab-all twentieth century with the hair-shirt idealism of the Age of the Saints. It is a novel full of contrasts -- switching boldly from humour to tragedy and broaching vital themes of faith and doubt, sham and self-delusion, while losing nothing of the uninhibited exuberance for which Wendy Perriam is known. 'Unashamedly sexual, yet profoundly spiritual ...a remarkable novel. It must be read.' Fay Weldon

Maghreb Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from El Maghreb: Miles Ride Through Morocco The following pages are an elaboration of the author's diary containing the record of visits to Morocco in each of the years 1882 - 1885. The journey which forms the principal subject of the volume was taken in 1883. In this journey we do not claim to have entered on any absolutely new ground, though in many places we quitted the ordinary caravan routes to the interior. Dr. Gerhard Rohlfs, who travelled wearing the garb, and professing the faith, of a Mussulman, no doubt preceded us not only at Wazan, but also along the road thence to Fez; to the best of our belief, however, we were the first Europeans to follow in his footsteps along that road. With reference to the title of the book, it may be mentioned that El Maghreb is the short Arabic name for Morocco.

Azmina Suleman's in-depth account of a near-death experience is a treasure of a spiritual read. Islamic near-death accounts are rather rare in the literature, and this account from a Shia Ismaili Muslim adds a significant dimension to near-death experience accounts. Her 2 - 1/2 page description of her union with Godalone is worth the price of the book! Dr. Ken R. Vincent Author of VISIONS OF GOD FROM THE NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE Azmina Suleman is one of those incredible teachers who provides the reader with a unique glimpse into the other side. She brings a very different perspective as a Muslim and someone from a multicultural background. Yet, she has managed to provide a balanced description of her experience without overstating her beliefs. As a well-grounded and published journalist, Azmina shares her near-death experience in a special way, and in doing so bridges an important gap as she addresses such questions as what it means to have an NDE, and what happenson the other side. More importantly, she forces us to take a closer look at what it is that we should be learning and gathering from these experiences. It is a very well-written account that will speak to the medical community caring for the critically ill, the researcher, as well as those just wanting to know more about the phenomena. Dr. Diane K. Corcoran, Ph.D. Past President of IANDS International Association for Near-Death Studies A Passage to Eternity is destined to be remembered as a notable event in the exploration, study and appreciation of the psyche. Azmina Suleman speaks powerfully and unforgettably, as she takes us on an intimate journey through the complex world of near-death experiences. She distills with stunning clarity the emotional depth, beauty, and spiritual richness to be found in a trans-dimensional reality that lies just beyond the physical. Not only is this book a compelling testament to the potential for profound wisdom and mysterious insight open to those who are receptive to such natural wisdom, but it is an important addition to the field of psycho-spiritual studies based on personal experience. Dr. Abdul Sultan Hassam, Ph.D., D.Sc., ABMPP Professor of Cognitive Science & Philosophy of Religion What impresses me most about Azmina Suleman's extraordinary story is its absolute candor and honesty. Whether you believe in an afterlife or not (and I myself am agnostic on this question), you cannot doubt the truth to be found in her telling of a profound personal experience. What is important here is not its epistemic validity, but its moral value - its power to inspire faith, and care for others. John King University of Calgary, Alberta
