It's only an old church, isn't it? Well, no, the Church of England has abandoned the old building and taken it out of commission. Even though it was designed by one of the foremost Victorian...

Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola
Written by the founder of the Society of Jesus, the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius is a powerful book. Derived mostly from St. Ignatius' conversion experiences in 1521-3, Spiritual Exercises has... More > provided guidance and encouragement to its readers for several hundred years. The aim of Spiritual Exercises is to assist people in finding God's will for their life, and to give them the motivation and courage to follow that will. It is a program of sorts, containing a collection of thoughts, rules, encouragements, readings, meditations, prayers, warnings, and notes. It is organized into four "weeks," or periods of time, with each week focusing upon a different theme--the first, human sin; the second, Christ's life on earth; the third, Christ's death on the cross; the fourth, Christ's risen life. Although more profitably worked through with another person or spiritual director, Spiritual Exercises can be extremely beneficial for private personal study. -Tim Perrine, CCEL Staff Writer< Less

More > the First Lord of the Admiralty? Whose sister is governess to Queen Victoria? Whose cousin and playfellow was the Lord Lucan who gave the fateful order to the Light Brigade? The relative of the Dukes of Marlborough and Devonshire, the familiar acquaintance of Prime Ministers? An alumnus of Eton and Cambridge, a scholar, polyglot, and one-time man-about-town? Whose great great great niece, Lady Diana Spencer, is destined to wed the heir to the throne?
Look closer. What is this strange black habit about the corpse? But hush — it is the body of a priest, a religious. The dead man has voluntarily renounced riches for poverty, comfort for the Cross, friendship with the mighty for fellowship with the poor.

Atlantis the Antediluvian World
At the center of Donnelly's thesis are a set of similarities between widely separated cultures. This he interpreted as evidence that all civilization diffused outward from a central point (a now... More > sunken continent in the mid-Atlantic). He cites mythological, linguistic, ethnographic and other evidence for this theory, which at the time seemed to add up to an airtight case.
Donnelly proposes a literal interpretation of Plato's account of Atlantis. He also ties Atlantis into the global flood myth-complex. These, until recently, have been two of the most compelling unsolved puzzles of history. What was Plato writing about when he described the prehistoric civilization of Atlantis, which disappeared overnight in a great catastrophe? Was this an actual historical account, or a philosophical fable? And why do widely separated cultures on every continent, Australia, the Americas, Europe and Asia all have a similar myth of a great flood from which only a few humans survived to restart civilization?< Less

The History of Atlantis - The Antideluvian World
This book is a scholarly and entertaining attempt to demonstrate several distinct and novel propositions. These are: That there once existed a large island, which was the remnant of an Atlantic... More > continent, and known to the ancient world as Atlantis. That the description of this island given by Plato is not, as has been long supposed, fable, but history. That it became a populous and mighty nation, from whose overflowings the Americas, the Mediterranean, the west coast of Europe and Africa, the Baltic, the Black Sea, and the Caspian were populated. That it was the true Antediluvian world, the Garden of Eden, the Elysian Fields, representing a universal memory of a great land, where early mankind dwelt for ages in peace and happiness.< Less
