More > retributive justice system through the argument of George Hegel that “once a criminal always a criminal.” In contrast, the author draws on the works of Pope John Paul II, St. Augustine of Hippo, and W. E. B. Du Bois to make a case for the recognition of a “second chance” and respect for human dignity in the US criminal justice system. Locked Up and Locked Down is a solution-based analysis of the disproportionate rates of incarceration of especially Black and Hispanic men, women, and youths. It is both descriptive and prescriptive. The goal is criminal justice reform that is holistic, smart, and restorative. As an appeal, it calls upon religious institutions in the United States including the Black Church to intervene.< Less

Chrisvislam is virtually a report writing of what the author has seen and heard all around him vis-à-vis the respective religious practices/malpractices, ministrations and global... More > behaviours/misbehaviours of the Muslim and Christian brethren. The analysis undertaken here is a direct result of the author’s life-long personal practical observation, quite objective and pointedly non-committal i.e. an objective, experiential psycho-feed-back of a non-partisan observer. On a final note, Chrisvislam has been written that the reader may re-examine his religious persuasion, in order for him to know whether he is heading for heaven or sauntering to hell, and promptly take the right step in the right direction accordingly.< Less

The Pheasant Cap Master and the End of History: Linking Religion to Philosophy in Early China By Marnix Wells

Following a catastrophic defeat at Changping in 260 BCE, and the reported immolation of close to half a million Zhao soldiers by Qin, a mysterious figure appeared on the stage of history. He was... More > called Heguanzi, the ‘Pheasant Cap’ master and appeared incognito. Seemingly a political refugee, this Daoist Demosthenes in outspoken jeremiads warned against a looming danger of total collapse and Zhao’s imminent annexation by the ruthless kingdom of Qin.

Against the totalitarian system of Qin, he offers an alternative vision of meritocracy and inclusiveness to unite a fractured world.

Hosea Ballou : A Marvellous Life-Story By Oscar F. Safford
Paperback: $20.00

"TWO biographies of Hosea Ballou have already been given to the public; one by Maturin M. Ballou, his youngest son, the other by Thomas Whittemore, a spiritual son. Both have long been out of... More > print. It has not been deemed advisable to republish either of these biographies. That by his son is filially affectionate and appreciative, and had a wide circulation, but is wanting in analysis and completeness. Dr. Whittemore's work is a magazine of facts, and is straightforward and plain in style ; but it is devoted largely to extraneous matters, and is infeasible for republication by being in four volumes. As the Universalist Church cannot with self-respect suffer its greatest theologian and most picturesque character to remain in increasing obscurity, this new attempt to tell his life-story has been made."< Less

In this quest for Truth, spanning... More > many centuries and diverse civilizations, organized religion has shaped human life and determined to a large extent, the course of history. While some religions have been based on books, claimed by their adherents to be divinely inspired, others have relied solely on human experience. Al-Qur’aan, the main source of the Islamic faith, is a book believed by Muslims, to be of completely Divine origin. Muslims also believe that it contains guidance for all mankind.

In this booklet, I intend to give an objective analysis of the Muslim belief regarding the Divine origin of the Qur’aan, in the light of established scientific discoveries.< Less

The Definitions of words, have been written in English instead of Arabic as previously expressed in: “Syntax and Translation of the Holy Koran”.

More > of the Book of Abraham is a joint composition of Phyllis J. Walton and Michael T. Walton. They were never intended as definitive studies, rather as encouragements to scholars to look at certain issues and patterns of facts. They were well received at the time of delivery. They are noted from time to time in scholarly works and listed on internet search engines and book lists. Because they have been cited and because they are listed as our work, we were concerned that they were not readily available for consultation. We have also taken the opportunity to correct some, but not all, spelling and grammatical errors, clarify certain comments, and, very occasionally, add information. They remain, however, a product of their time and do not reflect current scholarship.< Less
