Lorna Byrne sees and talks with angels every day of her life and has done since she was a baby. As a child Lorna was told by the angels that her job on this earth was to share the wisdom and knowledge that God and the angels were giving her. When Lorna’s husband died, her world fell apart. In Stairways to Heaven she tells the story of how she pulled her life back together and how she, an uneducated mother of four, broke her silence and started to spread the angels’ message to the world. Lorna tells us of the future that God envisages for us – and some possible other futures, depending on the decisions we make. ‘Everyone must play their part’, she says. She reveals some of the most extraordinarily detailed information about angels and the way they work in the world, that has ever been written down. She also introduces us to the Guardian Angel of the Earth and explains why it is so important that we listen to him. She tells the tragic love story of two spirits who she met first as a young child. These spirits stayed close to her for twenty years using Lorna’s spiritual gifts to heal those who had done them wrong – and also to heal the descendants of those wrongdoers, whose lives were still being overshadowed. The overwhelming reaction of readers to Lorna’s writing – regardless of religious belief – is that it gives them hope, helping them to realise that no matter how alone they might feel they have a guardian angel by their side.

The idea of heavenly ascent, while popularized in Jewish mysticism, is neither a unique nor recent one. Expertly tracing its origins back to the ancient Middle East, Levenda unearths ascent literature in Africa, India, and China, discerns a common connection in the heavens themselves, and determines that this connection has been sorely neglected in contemporary scholarship. Because scholars treat the "heavens" as metaphorical, it is necessary to recreate the physical context of the culture under discussion in order to better understand it. For the benefit of the reader, Levenda offers two useful concepts for his investigative journey: a "map," whereby he means the cosmological system to better understand the mystical technologies of each culture investigated, and a "vehicle," the method by which the individual equipped with special knowledge is able to navigate the culture's particular cosmology. With these two tools, Levenda travels from the worlds of ancient Egypt and Babylon to the Hebrew Bible, to Jewish and Christian kabbalists, to Daoists in ancient China, to Hindu Tantra and Haitian Vodoun, and, finally, to nineteenth and twentieth century European occult societies.

What has brought about the transformation of the British film industry over the last few decades, to the beginnings of what is arguably a new golden era? In the mid-1980s the industry was in a parlous state. The number of films produced in the UK was tiny. Cinema attendance had dipped to an all-time low, cinema buildings were in a state of disrepair and home video had yet to flourish. Since then, while many business challenges - especially for independent producers and distributors - remain, the industry overall has developed beyond recognition. In recent years, as British films have won Oscars, Cannes Palms and Venice Golden Lions, releases such as Love Actually, Billy Elliot, Skyfall, Paddington and the Harry Potter series have found enormous commercial as well as critical success. The UK industry has encouraged, and benefitted from, a huge amount of inward investment, much of it from the Hollywood studios, but also from the National Lottery via the UK Film Council and BFI. This book portrays the visionaries and officials who were at the helm as a digital media revolution began to reshape the industry. Through vivid accounts based on first-hand interviews of what was happening behind the scenes, film commentator and critic Geoffrey Macnab provides in-depth analysis of how and why the British film industry has risen like a phoenix from the ashes.

Medieval stairs, galleries and upper chambers in cathedrals, abbeys, and parish churches have been an enduring source of fascination to historians and archaeologists since the eighteenth century, but their practical purposes have long been shrouded in mystery and speculation. From libraries to lights, clocks to dovecotes, from secret games of skittles played over the vaults to the daring exploits of the twelfth-century Flying Monk, Toby Huitson explores the lofty spaces, nooks and crannies of medieval upper spaces though the interrogation of a wide range of documentary, visual and archaeological materials. Evidence is revealed for over 30 different functions during the period from around AD 1000 to 1550. Generously illustrated and fully-referenced, the text is accompanied by a set of special features and a quick-reference section, making it indispensable to all those interested in medieval history and architecture. Dr Toby Huitson teaches at the University of Kent, Canterbury.

Finally, after nearly half a century from its release we get to know the true meaning of the most beautiful rock song ever produced, 'Stairway To Heaven' by Led Zeppelin. This book has not been written to win a Nobel Prize in literature, but has been written with passion and attention to details to solve one of the biggest mystery of the musical world. You will get to understand the inspiration behind the song, the beautiful and earthed comparison that the singer and author Robert Plant makes between Faith, Religion and Spirituality, topics which have got more questions than answers. Gently and respectfully Robert Plant has concentrated the life conundrum of the here and now and the possible afterlife options on a single page, while giving a deep meaning and a sense to the purpose of life itself, a result which religion has not been able to achieve in thousands of years. You will come to discover that this masterpiece, this beautiful song's secret is that it has no secrets. The linear and captivating story told in the lyrics represents all of us. It talks in the most humble and respectful way about our hopes and fears, doubts and certainty; it invites us to wonder, but above anything else, guides us gently to acquire a better understanding of the importance of tolerance in life. A song accused of the worst, lyrics with no coherent meaning being as abstract as a dream can be, to get to understand that it is really a dream at the end, the most beautiful dream that any person can ever have while wide awake. It calls in rationality and common sense to look at life and what it has become today, a competitive game with winners and loser, a frantic search for the missing item that can make us feel better, happier, to discover at the end that we are already having all that life needs to become a blessing, a beautiful adventure that we all should enjoy and cherish. Precisely the song that was supposed to have hidden and hideous messages to make people lose themselves, we are going to understand that it is a song that makes you to find yourself, gives you the courage to be yourself and become a person that can help others along the way. The deepest descent in the topics of theology and religion in which many of us can get confused, completely simplified and expressed with such a clarity and respect that will surprise many. A song which goes from the present to the future, leading us also into the afterlife, explaining to us how to grasp the importance of the here and now, essential to be able to maintain the delicate equilibrium of life on this planets, which starts from an interior equilibrium, inside oneself, made up of well-being and respect, joy and effort used to offer as a result a helping hand to others rather than asking for it. A book of simplified complications and complicated simplicity following the song that has spoken always directly to our heart, leaving the mind "Dazed and Confused". Not only you'll get to love 'Stairway to Heaven' more than you ever did before just because of the real simple meaning of it, but you will as well acquire more respect for the author that has made one of the most beautiful and comprehensive yet concise talk about the enormous topic which is spirituality. On top of which, he also laid those few words on one of the most iconic melodies, one of most beautiful musical composition that you can ever hear. If you thought that the song was the most beautiful one of the last 50 years, you will get to appreciate the fact that eventually it will be the most beautiful song ever, full stop. Get ready to be surprised, because at the end you will see that the story narrated in the lyrics, it is a story to which you can relate with easy, actually, you already related with this strangely familiar lyrics from as long as you can remember. This book is here to explain to you the reason why, because the story told in the lyrics, is actually your story.

Since earliest times, humanity has pondered the incomprehensible mysteries of the universe, life...and the afterlife. In The Stairway to Heaven, the second book of Zecharia Sitchin's Earth Chronicles series, the author answers these fundamental questions: Was there somewhere on Earth where, after death, mortal man could join the immortal Gods? Where was this place? By whom was it established? And does it still exist today? After years of painstaking research--combining recent archaeological discoveries with ancient texts and artifacts--Sitchin has identified the legendary Land of the Gods, and provided astounding new revelations about the Great Pyramids, the Sphinx, and other mysterious monuments whose true meanings and purposes have been lost for eons. The Earth Chronicles deal with the history and prehistory of Earth and humankind. Each book in the series is based upon information written on clay tablets by the ancient civilizations of the Near East. For the first time, the entire Earth Chronicles series is now available in a hardcover collector's edition.

From Native Americans' use of tobacco for solemnizing oaths to the spread of New Age religious beliefs in Haight-Ashbury coffeehouses, drugs have been intimately associated with American spirituality. In Stairways to Heaven, Robert Fuller presents a rarely considered but very important dimension of American religious history—the use of mind-altering substances as an aid to spirituality—in a clear, engaging style. Fuller's entertaining narrative illustrates how such substances as peyote, jimson weed, hallucinogenic mushrooms, LSD, marijuana, wine, and coffee have stimulated ecstatic revelations of spiritual truth and strengthened the social bonds that sustain communities of faith.Stairways to Heaven is unique in the study of American religious history in two ways: first, it demonstrates that the ritual use of mind-altering substances has contributed to the innovation and diversity that characterize American religious life; second, it uses interdisciplinary research into the religious uses of drugs to shed light on the controversial legal, ethical, and spiritual controversies that surround drug use in the contemporary United States. The book's final chapter assesses the usefulness of drugs in the quest for a mature, life-affirming, community-building, creative spirituality.

We hear about heaven and the supernatural on late-night TV far more often than in church, and many Christians never hear it mentioned seriously from the pulpit. Everyone has something to say about their hopes and fears for the afterlife, but the topic of eternity is usually left to the talk shows. Ironically heaven is ignored by contemporary Christian preachers who stress the dailiness and [email protected] of religious faith. That emphasis is salutary, but it does tend to marginalize the subject of eternity rather than challenging and deepening our ideas through theological reflection. Each of the authors in this book was asked to write a short personal on the subject of heaven. This collection of essays gathers the hopes and reflections of theologians, novelists, and poets. The authors include Rick Moody, Nora Gallagher, Robert Orsi, Barbara Brown Taylor, Phyllis Tickle, Malcolm Boyd, Alan Jones, Cynthia Bourgeault, Donna Schaper, Susan Wheeler, and many others. These writings, which mix autobiography, story-telling, and theological reflection, are so poignant and wide-ranging that we can all find ourselves in them - and start telling our own stories about heaven.
