From Pope Francis to Mother Teresa and From Siddhartha to Thich Nhat Hanh: New Books on Religion
Now on the NEW Shelf!
Check out these titles on Religion found in the 200’s:
In his first book published as Pope, and in conjunction with the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis invites all humanity to an intimate and personal dialogue on the subject closest to his heart–mercy– which has long been the cornerstone of his faith and is now the central teaching of his papacy.
A Call to Mercy: Hearts to Love, Hands to Serve / Mother Teresa.
Published to coincide with Pope Francis’s Year of Mercy and the Vatican’s canonization of Mother Teresa, this new book of unpublished material by a humble yet remarkable woman of faith whose influence is felt as deeply today as it was when she was alive, offers Mother Teresa’s profound yet accessible wisdom on how we can show mercy and compassion in our day-to-day lives.
Siddhartha’s Brain: Unlocking the Ancient Science of Enlightenment / James Kingsland.
Kingsland expertly weaves the story and teachings of the Buddha with clinical and scientific research in a highly readable examination of the benefits of mindfulness and meditation. The author applies Buddhism and science to illustrate how humans’ complex “neural machinery” hardwires us for suffering. With chapters devoted to the discussion of depression, chronic pain, and addiction, he employs case studies to highlight the effectiveness of various mindfulness-based therapies, although he doesn’t shy away from presenting the challenges to and limitations of those investigations.
Thich Nhat Hanh’s How to Series
A new series of how-to titles by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh that introduces beginners to, and reminds seasoned practitioners of, the essentials of mindfulness practice. A teacher, author, poet, and peace activist, Thich Nhat Hanh has written over 100 titles on meditation, mindfulness and Engaged Buddhism, as well as poems, children’s stories, and commentaries on ancient Buddhist texts.
