IN DEFENSE OF A TRADITION By Saint Benedict's
eBook (PDF): $23.27
Most of us are familiar with the tradition that goes back many centuries, and which has been accepted in the writings of many popes, as to the connection of St. Dominic with the beginnings of the... More > Rosary devotion. According to tradition, the occasion was the Albigensian heresy which ravaged Christendom, particularly in southern France during the latter part of the 12th and the beginning of the 13th centuries. St. Dominic was distressed at his lack of success in his preaching in countering this heresy, and in his desperation turned to the Mother of God for help. She appeared to him (according to the tradition) and told him to use her Psalter in conjunction with his preaching of the mysteries of our salvation, as an instrument in combatting the great heresy of his day. We do not have any historical documents dating from that period expressly referring to St. Dominic and the Rosary. We will endeavor to show, however, that there are a number of things that could be responsible for that silence.< Less

When it was suggested to the man who came to be known as T. Lobsang Rampa that he should write a book about his early life in Tibet he rejected the idea. He had no wish for the fame he knew it would... More > bring, nor for the jealousy and the problems that jealousy would engender. But he needed money to do the research he had undertaken for the benefit of mankind, so eventually he agreed and wrote “The Third Eye,” a classic that brought Buddhism to the Western world and shed light in countless dark corners the world over.

Wisdom of the East Buddhist Psalms: Translated from the Japanese By Shinran Shonin
Paperback: $12.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
It is a singular fact that though many of the earlier Buddhist Scriptures have been translated by competent scholars, comparatively little attention has been paid to later Buddhist devotional... More > writings, and this although the developments of Buddhism in China and Japan give them the deepest interest as reflecting the spiritual mind of those two great countries. They cannot, however, be understood without some knowledge of the faith which passed so entirely into their life that in its growth it lost some of its own infant traits and took on others, rooted, no doubt, in the beginnings in India, but expanded and changed as the features of the child may be forgotten in the face of the man and yet perpetuate the unbroken succession of heredity. Whatever centuries may pass or the future hold in store for her, Japan can never lose the stamp of Buddhism in her outer or her spiritual life.< Less

The Rape of the Lock and the Dunciad (Deseret Alphabet Edition) By John Jenkins
Paperback: $12.00

Alexander Pope (1688–1744) was an English poet, best-known for his translation of Homer and other works in heroic couplets. He is the most-quoted English writer after William Shakespeare. The... More > Rape of the Lock is a satiric poem and mock-epic, based on a scandal caused when a nobleman, Robert Petre, cut off a lock of Arabella Fermor's hair without her permission. By recounting the incident in the elevated style of Homer's epics, Pope trivializes it in the hopes of ending the schism between the two families. The Dunciad, another mock-epic, pillories many of the then-prominent but now-forgotten literary figures of the day by describing their devotion to the goddess Dulness. This book is in the Deseret Alphabet, a phonetic alphabet for writing English developed in the mid-19th century at the University of Deseret (now the University of Utah).< Less
Exposition of Psalm 119 (Hardcover) By Charles Bridges
Hardcover: List Price: $32.98 $19.79 | You Save: 40%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Theologian and Biblical scholar Charles Bridges explains the nature of psalm 119, popularly renowned as one of the lengthiest and most spiritually rich of the psalms. In this superb narrative,... More > Bridges undertakes an intensive narration of each verse. He discusses at length the meanings and constructions behind each – on average, the author devotes over 750 words of exposition and discussion to each verse. The length of Bridges’ work alone makes it noteworthy; that the style of the author’s writing sometimes ranges to a stream of consciousness renders it both interesting and worthy of examination. With his scholarship and gifts for evocation at the ready, Charles Bridges delivers clarity and depth to the ancient verses, allowing Christians to appreciate the value of the famous psalm. He manages to be lively and entertaining, yet supremely respectful of the spiritual advice and faceted meanings in each of the verses, revealing what the Bible teaches about the character of God and our earthly existence.< Less
