  2. Tao Te Ching

    Tao Te Ching

    • by
    • Lao Tzu
    In what may be the most faithful translation of the Tao Te Ching, the translators have captured the terse, enigmatic beauty of the original masterpiece without embellishing it with personal interpretation or bogging it down with explanatory notes. By stepping out of the way and letting the original text speak for itself, they deliver a powerfully direct experience of the Tao Te Ching that is a joy to come back… Read More

    The Art of War

    Book and Audio-CD Set

    • by
    • Sun Tzu
    At the core of this ancient strategy manual is the understanding that conflict is an inescapable part of human experience. Since, as Sun Tzu teaches, aggression and response in kind can lead only to destruction, we must learn to work with conflict in a more profound and effective way.

    Where God Happens

    Discovering Christ in One Another

    • by
    • Rowan Williams
    The place "where God happens," according to Rowan Williams's striking new reading of the Desert Fathers and Mothers, is between each other. It's a truth that we of the twenty-first century most urgently need to learn in order to heal the experience of alienation that has become endemic to our age, and these odd and appealing ancient figures, surprisingly, hold keys to this healing. The fourth-century Christian hermits… Read More
