The Return of Odin: The Modern Renaissance of Pagan Imagination, 3rd Edition by Richard Rudgley

English | March 13th, 2018 | ASIN: B075CRT6JK, ISBN: 1620557274 | 342 Pages | EPUB | 10.44 MB

A controversial examination of the influence and presence of the Norse god Odin in contemporary history and culture
• Documents Odin’s role in the rise of Nazi Germany, the 1960s counterculture revolution, nationalist and ecological political movements, and the occult revival
• Examines the spiritual influence of Odin in relation to Jesus Christ
• Profiles key individuals instrumental in the rise of the modern pagan renaissance
Exploring the influence of the Norse god Odin in the modern world, Richard Rudgley reveals Odin’s central role in the pagan revival and how this has fueled a wide range of cultural movements and phenomena, including Nazi Germany, the 1960s counterculture revolution, the Lord of the Rings, the ecology movement, and the occult underground.
Rudgley argues that it is Odin and not Jesus Christ who is the single most important spiritual influence in modern Western civilization. He analyzes the Odin archetype–first revealed by Carl Jung’s famous essay on Wotan–in the context of pagan religious history and explains the ancient idea of the Web–a cosmic field of energies that encompasses time, space, and the hidden potentials of humanity—the pagan equivalent to the Tao of Eastern tradition. The author examines the importance of the concept of wyrd, which corresponds to “fate” or “destiny,” exploring techniques to read destiny such as the Runes as well as the existence of yoga in prehistoric and pagan Europe, which later produced the Norse Utiseta, an ancient system of meditation.
Rudgley documents how the Odin archetype came into play in Nazi Germany with the rise of Hitler and the pagan counterculture of the 1960s. He examines how the concept of subterranean and mythic realms, such as the Hollow Earth, Thule, and Agartha, and mysterious energies like Vril were manifested in both occult and profane ways and investigates key occult figures like Madame Blavatsky, Guido von List, and Karl Wiligut. He provides pagan analyses of Tolkien and the Lord of the Rings and documents the impact the Odin archetype has had on nationalist and fascist groups in America and Europe.
Examining pagan groups in Europe and America that use the Norse template, Rudgley reveals true paganism as holistic and intimately connected with the forces at work in the life of the planet. Showing how this “green” paganism can be beneficial for dealing with the adverse consequences of globalization and the ongoing ecological crisis, he explains how, when repressed, the Odin archetype is responsible for regressive tendencies and even mass-psychosis–a reflection of the unprecedented chaos of Ragnarok–but if embraced, the Odin archetype makes it possible for like-minded traditions to work together in the service of life.

The Way of Abundance: A 60-Day Journey into a Deeply Meaningful Life by Ann Voskamp

English | March 13th, 2018 | ASIN: B072TPQ7BW, ISBN: 031035031X | 256 Pages | EPUB | 0.85 MB

What do you do when you wake up and feel like you’re not enough for your life? Or when you look out the kitchen window as dusk falls and wonder how do you live when life keeps breaking your heart?
As Ann Voskamp writes, “great grief isn’t meant to fit inside your body. It’s why your heart breaks.” And each of us holds enough brokenness to overflow—to be given as the greatest story of our lives.
In sixty vulnerably soulful stories, The Way of Abundance moves from self-weary brokenness to Christ-focused givenness. Drawing from the critically acclaimed, New York Times bestseller The Broken Way and Ann’s online essays, this devotional dares us to embrace brokenness as a gift that moves us to givenness as a way to draw closer to the heart of God. Christ Himself broke like bread, giving Himself to us so we might have a lifelong communion with Him. Could it be that our brokenness is also a gift to the world?
This gentle but exquisitely profound book does nothing less than take you on an intimate journey of the soul.
As Ann writes, „The wound in His side proves that Jesus is always on the side of the suffering, the wounded, the busted, the broken.“ Discover how surrendering in unexpected ways is the first step toward receiving what you long for. Discover the good news that your beauty is not in your strength but in your fragility. Discover why your healing shines radiant through your wounds—and how only in brokenness will you ever be whole—and find the way to the abundance you were meant for.

Invest Your Disappointments: Going For Growth by Paul Mallard

English | March 15th, 2018 | ASIN: B079YV1CSZ, ISBN: 1783594454 | 192 Pages | EPUB | 1.02 MB

Let’s be honest. We’re frequently disappointed. With family, friends, leaders, work, ourselves, church – sometimes, dare we say it, even with God.
‘You carry the tears inside,’ is the author’s description.
Disappointment can be devastating. It can be sudden. And it’s certainly universal.
But what if we were to use disappointment as an opportunity to check whether our motivation and priorities were in line with God’s will? Could it provide a chance to grow?
