Intriguing Book Offers Uncommon Wisdom for Searching Minds in “Wisdom for a New Era: Balancing Nature, Science, and Belief” by Benjamin C. Godfrey.
When ancient human beings looked up in the sky and saw the wonders of the universe, they could only imagine what the celestial bodies actually are and how they came to be. Out of fertile imaginations grew myths, legends, and tales of yore that served to sustain their spirituality.
Mythologist Joseph Campbell (d. 1987) suggested that old myths are no longer satisfying the needs of modern man. How does contemporary humankind balance nature, science, and their beliefs in the midst of a virtual avalanche of new scientific and technological information?
Benjamin C. Godfrey’s Wisdom for a New Era, draws from the great ideas of legendary scholars, applies critical thinking, and expresses it with “uncommon, common sense,” offering a practical rudder for the navigation and acceptance of “new” realities, for creating new myths, and for living an enthusiastic spiritual life.
“This intriguing book considers some of the most profound questions in the universe. We are pleased to announce its release,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and More >
Author, Donald Ackermann is pleased to announce the release of his new book, “Does God Exist? Are Science and the Belief in God Compatible?” In this new work, Ackermann mixes science and religion to explore God’s true existence.
Wonder if there is a God … a benevolent God? Who among us would not want to know the answer? Unexpectedly, some scientists are now leading the way to that answer. And the answer is yes.
The contentious debate between believers and non-believers as to whether or not God really exists has raged ever since man first gazed into the heavens and pondered the universe. But recent discoveries coupled with what was already known are drawing the two opposing camps closer. This commentary strives to demonstrate how this is happening, and why the religious and scientific communities are gradually finding so much more that they can agree upon. Both sides have given considerable ground.
Some scientists and theologians now acknowledge each other’s previously inflexible positions on many issues: how old the earth is, if other life similar to ours exists, the nature of things that strongly suggest Intelligent Design. It is More >

“Known to Social Services” by Freya Barrington is #1 Bestseller at Amazon UK for Social Work Books.
Written from life experience and ringing with authenticity, “Known to Social Services” follows Diane Foster, a dedicated social worker, into the grim, grey world of the Deacon Hill estate in Millbrook and the tormented lives of its inhabitants. Domestic violence, child abuse, serial paedophiles and ex-convicts proliferate in the daily lives of most of the children, but Diane enters deeply into this world of misery to help the victims and keep together the fragile structure of society. Hampered by an administration inhabited by paper-shuffling and uninvolved, uncaring bureaucrats, Diane fights unremittingly to protect the children of Deacon Hill from rape, horror, random violence, female genital mutilation and murder, within the context of a horrifying barrenness and desolate existential reality.
“Freya Barrington’s first novel is a journey worth taking. It provides us with a look into the depths of society and inspires us with the story of a person who makes a difference in the lives of many” – James Morgan Ayres

True Story Relates the Fallout of a Murder Spree in St. Croix in “Fountain Valley 1972″ by Michael A. Joseph, Esq.
As the world’s attention was focused on the massacre of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympic Games, a day later on Sept. 6, 1972, the Fountain Valley Golf Course in St. Croix was invaded by five masked men wielding automatic weapons. Within minutes, eight people, including tourists and resort workers, were killed by gunmen who fled into the surrounding rainforest after firing on eight more people.
The massacre at the Fountain Valley Golf Course was called one of the most vicious crimes “in the annals of Western civilization.” This book tells the story of the aftermath of that day.
Before the shootings in St. Croix, a local Vietnam vet tried to kill two cops while they were arresting a fellow vet who stole money for heroin. Both veterans became addicts while fighting the war. The vet got away, but was hunted by police. He sought refuge in a camp where the author’s brother was being visited by three men. The four were clueless to the vet’s tactics that made the killings appear to be racially More >
