Explore how the principles of a global ethic can be found in Judaism and how they can provide the ethical norms for all religions to work together toward a more peaceful humankind. In 1993, the Parliament of the World's Religions endorsed the "Declaration toward a Global Ethic" composed by Hans Küng. In it, representatives from all the world's religions agreed on principles for a global ethic and committed themselves to directives of nonviolence, respect for life, solidarity, a just economic order, tolerance, and equal rights and partnership between men and women. But the declaration was just the first step. In this impressive volume, Hans Küng, probably the most famous living Roman Catholic theologian, and Rabbi Walter Homolka, head of Germany's Abraham Geiger rabbinical seminary and distinguished professor, draw on the Jewish tradition to show the riches that Judaism can offer people of all faiths and nonbelievers in achieving these directives. Presenting key sacred texts and theological writings, the authors make the case for binding values and basic moral attitudes that can be found in Judaism's universal message of a better world. Exploring Judaism's focus on ethical conduct over declarations of faith, the authors show that making ethical decisions is indispensable in an ever-changing world.

Obsessively-detailed, and very funny, instructions on nearly everything in life you are very possibly doing all wrong. Help is here! From how to eat an ice-cream cone to developing "principles" when you have none, the author's mission is to elevate, and ennoble, those fleeting instincts we all harbor to get our lives in order. "Hills is preoccupied primarily with the little things," Nora Ephron wrote in the New York Times"and he writes about them deliciously." This volume includes three titles previously published individually: How To Do Things Right, How to Retire at 41, and How to Be Good. They have been edited, revised and combined into one volume and the contents will have you laughing out loud, thinking hard, and at least temporarily rearranging your frazzled life. Hills is wise, witty, and very, very funny. But behind the humor, Hills remains a deeply sage and serious writer. This is his best advice, from years of experience, served up from the heart of one of the most charming humorists to grace the American scene.

Originally written for her sisters in the order that she had belonged to, St. Teresa lays out a book of advice to attain true communion with God. Although some of the chapters feel like rules rather than guidance, the steps within this book help to draw us closer to god via prayer, meditation and silence. Many times in our loud world we try to show our closeness with God via loud exclamations of what our Lord is doing but St. Teresa shows a different and heartfelt way of meditating on God's word in a silent nature allowing us to see that relationship with God is a private thing that no one has any say over except God himself and His word.

This book covers a great deal of ground spiritually, philosophically, and emotionally. The subject matter is often weighty, yet it doesn’t feel like that at all, no small feat when discussing the origins and cycles of life, birth and death, and everything in between. Moving from the particular to the universal, to that place where we are all one, the author uses moments from his life experience to help us better understand and appreciate our own journey. Often in an understated manner, he points out that just below the surface of the ordinary lies this other world where the truly meaningful and abiding realities of our lives frequently go unnoticed. He gently turns over the stones on our paths, looking for the meaning hidden underneath, often finding real gems. You will meet yourself more than once in these pages.
