Anansi (ah-NAHN-see), the spider, is a popular figure in the folklore of parts of West Africa (the stories later came to the Caribbean islands.) Like Brier Rabbit in America, Anansi is a 'trickster' figure - clever, cunning, and sometimes mischievous - who uses his wits to make up for what he lacks in size and strength. Tales by the fireside, also known as “Anansesem” are special epical bedtimes stories, which were told during the evening by an elderly person in the family or in the village. These were stories that have good morals, ditties and funny inclinations of educating the young ones of a special character called Kwaku Anansi. This story tells us about how Kwaku Anansi took an advantage over his friends with a spell casted by an old witch.

In Native American history, there are many legends about UFOs, gods and aliens. There has always been a connection between Native Americans and beings from other parts of the universe, referred to as Star People. Perhaps due to familiarity with celestial fixtures, it has been easier for Native Americans to relate events they have experienced on earth with things such as the formation of the Pleiades. The experience of tribal individuals with the Pleiades is featured quite prominately in legends across many tribes including Cherokee, Onondaga, Lakota and others. It is not hard to believe they would identify an event with a star, being the nature and history of tribes was to exist outdoors. The night sky would be paid much more attention by one who did not live indoors. Regardless of the tribe or the whether the interaction is through a god or star people, there is proof that the ancient people of North America believed they have been visited by unexplainable beings from the heavens. The stories in the collection tell of many different tribes and their experiences and the outcome of walking with these beings.

From Earth Spirits to Sky Gods

In this thought-provoking new book, Bruce Lerro offers a speculative reconstruction of the sacred beliefs and practices of cultures existing between 30,000 and 500 B.C.E. Lerro describes how material changes in various social formations--including hunting-gathering bands and horticulturalists in villages--were responsible for the shift from magic to realism, from the belief in earth spirits to faith in sky gods. Drawing from such diverse theorists as Marx and Engels, Vygotsky, Piaget, and George Herbert Mead, Lerro critiques and transforms mechanical, humanistic, new age, and countercultural perspectives on the history of sacred traditions. This study of comparative religion and mythology has important applications for the fields of archaeology, evolutionary anthropology, sociology, political science, and comparative psychology.

In the mid-17th century Edmond Halley, adventurer and astronomer, visits reclusive alchemist and fearsome mathematician, Isaac Newton, in Cambridge. No one understands why the planets move as Kepler so elegantly described almost a century earlier, and Halley asks Newton for help with solving the problem. Little does Halley know that this simple question will plunge both their lives into crisis, push Europe headlong towards the Age of the Enlightenment and catapult science into its next decisive clash with religion. The Sensorium of God is the second of a trilogy of novels inspired by the dramatic struggles, personal and professional, and key historical events in man's quest to understand the Universe.

Blue Sky God interprets some new scientific theories with blue sky thinking to bring radical insights into God, Jesus and humanity, drawing also on some deep wells from the past in the writings of the early Christians. In an accessible style, it looks at science research and theories in areas such as quantum physics and consciousness, epigenetics, morphic resonance and the zero point field. From there, seeing God as the compassionate consciousness at the ground of being, it draws together strands to do with unitive consciousness and the Wisdom way of the heart. Throughout, it seeks to encourage an evolution in understanding of the Christian message by reinterpreting much of the theological language and meaning that has become ‘orthodoxy’ in the West. In doing so, it challenges many of the standard assumptions of Western Christianity. It outlines a spiritual path that includes elements from all of the world's great religions, is not exclusive, and yet has a place of centrality for Jesus the Christ as a Wisdom teacher of the path of transformative love.
