“Religious philosophy for the common man. You can focus on reason, ignoring every religious reference within the book and the self-evident values remain. But don't ignore too much; this is... More > cutting-edge religious scholarship . . . An opening salvo for a new religious realism.” “...The Oxbow Revelation reads like Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance crossed with East of Eden—with shades of American Graffiti as its backdrop.” “...

The Laozi, Daodejing By Paul Gibson
eBook (ePub): $4.99
The Laozi, Daodejing (also published in as The Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching) is a new translation and commentary for 2015 and beyond. Unlike many other translations, this book's commentary invites the... More > reader into the interpretive process. It provides the reader with a look into the visuals that make up key Chinese characters in order to assist the reader in understanding its practical philosophy of Realism. The 2500 year old Chinese text is not about rights and wrongs, nor is it about trying to change the world so that it suits you. It is about how we regard value and how this sense of value may, in turn, inform ourselves. It is about how adapting ourselves to the world as it exists may make the world a better place in which all can live. It might best be regarded as self-help philosophy.< Less

More > precede them. Even if a translation appears fairly straightforward, all interpretation is subjective; it must be. Just as every translator interprets, every reader brings his or her abilities to understanding (interpreting) what they read. So it is, will be, and always has been, you will interpret what I have interpreted. Valuing this tendency rather than fighting that which is natural, I intend to offer up ways of seeing the text: Together we will re-view the text through its images rather than hearing only the words as traditionally translated.< Less

Wisdom's Hiding Place By Paul Gibson
Paperback: $10.65
Prints in 3-5 business days
We live in a world dominated by belief. We hear, are taught, convinced and converted. We affirm, worship, praise and preach. We argue, persecute and kill for belief. And all of this can happen... More > without a hint of faith in sight. Our failure to understand the difference between faith and belief has always been with us. Problems with belief are not limited to religion; belief affects everything from politics to personal relationships. Here we consider a philosophy of realism. Within realism, we find that not only is faith opposed to belief, faith is a tool of reason whether we are religious or not. Remarkably, the evidence suggests that many popular religious ideas and “myths” began as psychological lessons in realism. Because what we view is so dependent upon how we view, we learn how realism can influence our psychology, inform our values, and reveal a path forward that avoids the pitfalls of belief.< Less
The Occidental Tourist By Paul Gibson
eBook (ePub): $4.00
This book is current yet timeless. My sister and I, mainly, discuss race, culture, politics and values. What could at times be considered arcane or futile debate is bracketed by the fact that Donald... More > Trump’s run for president of the United States has attracted so many ardent supporters; one such being my sister Sharon. Although we only mention Donald Trump a couple of times within our yearlong debate, the same attitudes that radiate from his persona cause certain people and their issues to gravitate to his campaign. Alongside this push and pull we seem to be witnessing the disintegration of at least one political party while finding concern about what may rise from these ashes. Other books include a translation and commentary of the Laozi, Daodejing entitled, The Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching; A Visual Interpretation, 2014. Wisdom's Hiding Place; Reaching Beyond Belief, a book of religious philosophy linking Judaism, Christianity and Daoism to philosophical realism, 2011. A novel entitled, The Oxbow Revelation, 2009.< Less
