if we'd been neglecting Catholicism for a time, we've made up for it. See, for instance,the recently added Reasonableness of Catholic Ceremonies and Practices, as well as The Veneration and Invocation of Saints, and the Efficacy of Prayer. Whether you're a Catholic yourself or just want to know why Catholics do certain things (like pray to saints), you'll find both works interesting. As an added bonus, you can also now find on our website Thoughts and Counsels of the Saints for Every Day of the Year.
We also completed adding Claud Field's 1910 work, Mystics and Saints of Islam.
Ever wonder about The Meaning of It All? Why not read Edward Carpenter's essay on the subject?
And, before you take that next trip to the casino, you might wish to familiarize yourself with the Quaker View of Gambling, circa 1881.
We always have a number of books that interest us, and from time to time like to share with others the titles of books we're currently reading. Right now, this includes Byways of Blessedness, by James Allen. You can find the complete text here on our website.
It's a great time of year for thinking about self-improvement. Get started with Florence Scovel Shinn's 1925 work, The Game of Life, which you're bound to find an inspiration.
We've been making minor additions to our website, but cooler weather has now inspired us to get back on track with some longer works that we've wanted to add, the first of these being Charles G. Leland's The Mystic Will. We've now also added Albert Parker Fitch's Preaching and Paganism, and W. Y. Evans-Wentz's Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries.
We've also added C. H. Becker's very interesting 1909 Christianity and Islam, and Frank F Ellinwood's 1891 Oriental Religions and Christianity, which classifies Islam (along with Buddhism, Taoism, and Hinduism) as an "oriental religion."
