Consciousness Unfolding

Joel Goldsmith takes the reader deep into the principles of The Infinite Way, "the unfolding of consciousness. Our premise is that God, divine Consciousness, is unfolding, revealing, disclosing, and manifesting Itself as your individual being and as mine."
Goldsmith gives the foundation required for understanding how meditation and contemplation of scriptural truth help one come to the realisation that God is truly unfolding, revealing, and disclosing Itself as your individual being, and that you can trust that every issue of life - health, wealth, home, business, profession and relationships - will flow forth harmoniously.

A French aristocrat who lost nearly his entire family in the Reign of Terror, de Tocqueville spent most of his adult life struggling for liberty under the unsuccessful regimes of nineteenth-century France.
When he was twenty-five he travelled to America, encountering democracy for the first time, the experience contributing to his incisive writing on liberty and democracy.
His Le ancien regime launched the scholarly study of the French Revolution, and Democracy in America remains the best book ever written by a European about the United States.

A Nun Always
cover image of A Nun Always: The Story of Teresa Grigolini, an Italian Missionary Sister in the Sudan, 1876-98, for sale in New Zealand

The Story of Teresa Grigolini, an Italian Missionary Sister in the Sudan, 1876-98.
Sister Teresa Grigolini was captured by the Islamist Mahdists in 1882, and with others of her community became a slave, constantly abused and threatened with death.
Some of them died in these appalling conditions, but no threat could persuade them to give up their faith as was demanded constantly of them.
The personal and tragic life events of Teresa Grigolini occur at the time of the rise of the Mahdists against the long and oppressive rule of the Sudan by Egypt, supported by English colonial interests, the 1885 fall of Khartoum, and eventually the Battle of Omdurman in 1898, and the re-taking of Khartoum and the Sudan by Kitchener's Anglo-Egyptian army.
In 1898 the remaining few of the missionary captives were freed after sixteen years in captivity, but life for Sister Teresa had changed forever.
Her story has been pieced together from her own and other letters, documents which enchant, edify, shock and sadden, but ultimately leave the reader with spirits raised for the love, strength and commitment of a remarkable woman.

Thus Spoke Zarathustra
cover image of Thus Spoke Zarathustra, for sale in New Zealand

Nietzsche was one of the most revolutionary thinkers in Western philosophy, and Thus Spoke Zarathustra remains his most influential work.
The ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor.
With blazing intensity, Nietzsche argues that the meaning of existence is not to be found in religious pieties or meek submission, but in an all-powerful life force: passionate, chaotic and free.
