Since 1980, depth psychologist Bill Plotkin has been guiding women and men into the wilderness — the redrock canyons and snow-crested mountains of the American West — but also into the wilds of the soul. He calls this work soulcraft. There’s a great longing in all people to uncover the secrets and mysteries of our individual lives, to find the unique gift we were born to bring to our communities, and to experience our full membership in the more-than-human world. This journey to soul is a descent into layers of the self much deeper than personality, a journey meant for each one of us, not just for the heroes and heroines of mythology. A modern handbook for the journey, Soulcraft is not an imitation of indigenous ways, but a contemporary nature-based approach born from wilderness experience, the traditions of Western culture, and the cross-cultural heritage of all humanity. Filled with stories, poems, and guidelines, Soulcraft introduces over 40 practices that facilitate the descent to soul, including dreamwork, wilderness vision fasts, talking across the species boundaries, council, self-designed ceremony, nature-based shadow work, and the arts of romance, being lost, and storytelling.

A philosopher/mechanic's wise (and sometimes funny) look at the challenges and pleasures of working with one's hands Called "the sleeper hit of the publishing season" by The Boston Globe, Shop Class as Soulcraft became an instant bestseller, attracting readers with its radical (and timely) reappraisal of the merits of skilled manual labor. On both economic and psychological grounds, author Matthew B. Crawford questions the educational imperative of turning everyone into a "knowledge worker," based on a misguided separation of thinking from doing. Using his own experience as an electrician and mechanic, Crawford presents a wonderfully articulated call for self-reliance and a moving reflection on how we can live concretely in an ever more abstract world.

Statecraft as Soulcraft

Political philosophy is a political act. But there are many levels to the game of
politics. Soulcraft should concern politics at a high level of generality. It should be
concerned not with particular programs but with criteria for judging programs.

Soulcraft: the art of discerning, applying and enjoying the wisdom of God in every aspect of life. There are many books on relationships, how to improve communication, resolve conflict, have more fun, get more serious. This book is not one of them. Rather, this is a special book that reveals how God makes us and molds us inot the people he wants us to be as we work and play and cry and laugh with each other in the daily grind of life. Proverbs tells us that "as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." Similarly, this book explores how God uses other people to craft us and form our spiritual lives. Whether with friends, spouses or children, God uses everyday relationships so we can love him with our spiritual lives. Whether with friends, spouses or children, God uses other people to craft us and form our spiritual lives. Whether with friends, spouses or children, God uses everyday relationships so we can love him with our hearts, mind, strength and soul. All relationships were designed to be God-centered. Soulcraft encourages us to look at life differently -- not from the self-oriented perspective of the world. Soulcraft sees our identity and sexuality from God's fresh point of view. Soulcraft not only gives us new reasons for joy but also gives us the strength to meet the burdens of brokenness and grief in relationships. Soulcraft is the adventure of a lifetime. God invites you to join him in it. "Soulcraft invites us into the workshop of a pastor practicing his craft, soulcraft. There are no cliches here, no breezy self-help slogans. This is serious stuff indeed. What our culture trivializes, this pastor treats with enormous respect. Doug Webster bring a biblically disciplined mind and a reverent Christ-attentiveness to the details of what matters most to all of us, over very souls." --Eugene H. Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College. Douglas D. Webster (PhD., St. Michael's College, Toronto School of Theology) is pastor of First Presbyterian Church in San Diego, California. He also teaches courses at Bethel Seminary, San Diego, and Tyndale Seminary in Toronto, Canada. He is author of eight books, including A Passion for Christ and The Discipline of Surrender.

James Hankins challenges the view that the Renaissance was the seedbed of modern republicanism, with Machiavelli as exemplary thinker. What most concerned Renaissance political theorists, Hankins contends, was not reforming laws but shaping citizens. To secure the social good, they fostered virtue through a new program of education: the humanities.

Politics is concerned with citizenship and the administration of justice--how communities are formed and governed. The role of Christians in the political process is hotly contested, but as citizens, Francis Beckwith argues, Christians have a rich heritage of sophisticated thought, as well as a genuine responsibility, to contribute to the shaping of public policy. In particular, Beckwith addresses the contention that Christians, or indeed religious citizens of any faith, should set aside their beliefs before they enter the public square. What role should religious citizens take in a liberal democracy? What is the proper separation of church and state? What place should be made for natural rights and the moral law within a secular state? This cogent introduction to political thought surveys political science, politics and government while making the case for how statecraft may genuinely contribute to soulcraft. Politics for Christians is part of The Christian Worldview Integration Series.

William Dudley Pelley

William Dudley Pelley was one of the most important figures of the anti-Semitic radical right in the twentieth century. Best remembered as the leader of the paramilitary "Silver Shirts," Pelley was also an award-winning short story writer, Hollywood screenwriter, and religious leader. During the Depression Pelley was a notorious presence in American politics; he ran for president on a platform calling for the ghettoization of American Jews and was a defendant in a headlinegrabbing sedition trial thanks to his unwavering support for Nazi Germany. Scott Beekman offers not only a political but also an intellectual and literary biography of Pelley, greatly advancing our understanding of a figure often dismissed as a madman or charlatan. His belief system, composed of anti-Semitism, economic nostrums, racialism, neo-Theosophical channeling, and millenarian Christianity, anticipates the eclecticism of later cult personalities such as Shoko Asahara, leader of Aum Shinrikyo, and the British conspiracy theorist David Icke. By charting the course of Pelley's career, Beekman does an admirable job of placing Pelley within the history of both the anti-Semitic right and American occult movements. This exhaustively researched book is a welcome addition to the growing body of scholarship on American extremism and esoteric religions.
