The Gnostic New Age

April DeConick

Professor April D. DeConick of Rice University draws our attention to a paradigm shift in our understanding of religion and its purpose, when she explores the emergence of Gnostic spirituality with its subversive view of a transcendent God, the divine human being and illusionary worlds. 


How God Became God: What Scholars are Really Saying about God and the Bible

Richard M. Smoley

This epic, thrilling journey through Bible scholarship and ancient religion shows how much of Scripture is historically false--yet the ancient writings also resound with theologies that crisscrossed the primeval world and that direct us today toward a deep, inner, authentic experience of the truly sacred.


The Conscious Universe: The Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena Paper
​Dean Radin
Psychokinesis, remote viewing, prayer and more--all are real,  all have been  scientifically  proven, and the proof is in this book. Radin draws from his  own research  at Princeton and Stanford  Research Institute, and for Fortune  500  companies,  and the U.S. government. 

Miracles: A Parascientific Inquiry into Wondrous Phenomena

D. Scott Rogo

"Miracles is a fascinating account of the Christian legacy of wondrous phenomena. The book is unique in that its author attempts a scientific evaluation of these  accounts and of the world view of their proponents."

- Stanley Krippner, Professor of psychology, Saybrook Graduate School, San Francisco


The Search for Yesterday
D. Scott Rogo

In this thorough and balanced account, researcher D. Scott Rogo offers a critical and scientific examination of reincarnation. He considers the various forms of past-life recall (dreams, waking visions, déjà vu), the most impressive case studies, and the history of research into reincarnation. He then concludes the book with an examination of explanatory models that can account for the phenomenon. Rogo concludes that some people can indeed tap into the memories of other people, cultures, and places long removed in time, but proposes that the evidence might be pointing to something more complex than our traditional views of reincarnation.
