It's impossible to have been lived in this world without having read at least one book on Religion.
- The Key to Theosophy | by H. P. Blavatsky
- Written in the form of question and answer, The Key to Theosophy is an
excellent introduction for the inquirer. After the publication of Isis
Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine, the author was deluged with
questions about the human constitution, spiritual and psychological;
the mysteries of periodic rebirths; and the difference between fate,
destiny, free will, and karma. These and many other questions on the
basic theosophical concepts are answered simply and directly. The work
is enhanced by a 60-page glossary of philosophical terms drawn from
Sanskrit, Hebrew, and classical literature.
- The Higher Powers Of Mind And Spirit | by Ralph Waldo Trine
- We are all dwellers in two kingdoms, the inner kingdom, the kingdom of the mind and spirit, and the outer kingdom, that of the body and the physical universe about us. In the former, the kingdom of the unseen, lie the silent, subtle forces that are continually determining, and with exact precision, the conditions of the latter. To strike the right balance in life is one of the supreme essentials of all successful living. We must work, for we must have bread. We require other things than bread. They are not only valuable, comfortable, but necessary. It is a dumb, stolid being, however, who does not realize that life consists of more than these. They spell mere existence, not abundance, fullness of life.
- Dominion And Power, or The Science of Life and Living | by Charles Brodie Patterson
- The prayer of the world to-day is for "light, more light." The mind of man is reaching out for a more comprehensive knowledge of the laws which regulate and control life. There is a wave of spiritual thought and feeling that is extending to the uttermost parts of the earth. While the ancient faiths are passing away, and man no longer accepts his religion because of the authority of any book or dogmatic creed, yet there is a new authority coming into life, such as the world has never known save in rare instances.
- Love's Way | by Orison Swett Marden
- Modern thought is putting a new meaning into the invitation. It is extending the application of Christ's words to every human problem. He put no limitations to his invitation, which is the voice of Divine Love, calling to us. Love's way is Christ's way. It says, "Love your enemies, bless those that curse you "Let him that is without sin cast the first stone"; and on this condition no one can cast a stone because there is no one without sin, no one without some weakness as unfortunate as his neighbor's.
- Life And Teachings Of Lord Jesus | by Sri Swami Sivananda
- Swami Sivananda's exposition of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, including from a yogic viewpoint.
- Parish Church Goods In Berkshire, A.D. 1552 | by James Parker And Co.
- It would be superfluous, and beyond our scope, to attempt but slightly to review the great religious change of the sixteenth century; but in these days, when we are passing through many struggles both of religious thought and of national policy, not unlike those with which our forefathers grappled, there must, for all thoughtful men, be a peculiar interest in studying anew the history of this great religious revolution...
- A Man and His Money | by Harvey Reeves Calkins
- Property, what is it? and wealth, what does it include? Who shall
control it? Who shall administer it? On what terms shall it be
possessed and enjoyed? These questions pulse with human interest, and
the average man is wholly absorbed by them. And so he ought to be...
- How To Pay Church Debts And How To Keep Churches Out Of Debt | by Rev. Sylvanus Stall
- This book is the outgrowth of an earnest desire to afford aid to the thousands of churches to-day burdened with debt, and to the thousands more which are struggling to meet current expenses. In these pages we have sought to show, not how we would do this work, but how the most successful pastors all over this country have done, and are doing it. We have had no pet theory to advocate, but have sought to bring to all who are entrusted with the financial management of churches such information and suggestion as would enable them to perfect a system already in use, or to substitute such a one as would help in advancing them in their return to the only perfect method - the ordained law of the tithe.
