Book Summary:

In the late 80's there were a few scandals associated with several Christian born-again groups but there was little talk of any perils or problems with some of the Eastern gurus or groups. The Serpent Rising was a very early attempt to 'lift the lid' so to speak. In recent decades there has been continued reporting and exposes of the misuse of power, money and sexuality by Zen masters, yogis, swamis and Tibetan lamas. In the seventies this interest in Eastern religions and practices was thought of as a passing fad. But it hasn't; if anything the interest is growing stronger.

Book Summary:

The Serpent's Garden is a crime/thriller about the macabre and mysterious murders of five female graduate students at UCLA. A charismatic but controversial philosophy professor has been falsely charged and convicted of the ritualistic murders. All the women were found posed and clutching a Bible; the murderer left several clues including coins wedged in the victim's eyes bearing a crucified serpent, an open Bible, a novelty snake, and an eight-inch crucifix buried in the victims' birth canal. Professor Chance Carpenter ends up on death row because of a rush to judgment orchestrated by the diminutive FBI agent Laura Lamb. Her ambitions and nefarious secrets cause her to cross the thin blue line and also become a serial killer. She is captured but manages a miraculous escape from the confines of Quantico's FBI headquarters and heads west on a revenge crime spree of her own. She is now on the lam; her crimes are featured in the tabloids and a new dance craze is named after her. College kids are doing the "Laura Lamb". The true killer of the UCLA coeds, however, has blended in with average "Joe College". The thriller follows a trail of evil, surprise, and suspense.

Book Summary:

The most pervasive gods in ancient Rome had no traditional mythology attached to them, nor was their worship organized by elites. Throughout the Roman world, neighborhood street corners, farm boundaries, and household hearths featured small shrines to the beloved lares, a pair of cheerful little dancing gods. These shrines were maintained primarily by ordinary Romans, and often by slaves and freedmen, for whom the lares cult provided a unique public leadership role. In this comprehensive and richly illustrated book, the first to focus on the lares, Harriet Flower offers a strikingly original account of these gods and a new way of understanding the lived experience of everyday Roman religion. Weaving together a wide range of evidence, Flower sets forth a new interpretation of the much-disputed nature of the lares. She makes the case that they are not spirits of the dead, as many have argued, but rather benevolent protectors—gods of place, especially the household and the neighborhood, and of travel. She examines the rituals honoring the lares, their cult sites, and their iconography, as well as the meaning of the snakes often depicted alongside lares in paintings of gardens. She also looks at Compitalia, a popular midwinter neighborhood festival in honor of the lares, and describes how its politics played a key role in Rome’s increasing violence in the 60s and 50s BC, as well as in the efforts of Augustus to reach out to ordinary people living in the city’s local neighborhoods. A reconsideration of seemingly humble gods that were central to the religious world of the Romans, this is also the first major account of the full range of lares worship in the homes, neighborhoods, and temples of ancient Rome.

Book Summary:

She opened the shagreen box. Couched in gray silk was an emerald necklace, one he had not seen for twenty years. The stones were just as he recalled them: a dozen or more, baguette cut and set in gold links, with a single ruby at the center. Flashes of verdigris, orpiment, and Prussian blue sparkled in the candlelight. The form of this necklace was as disturbing as ever. It had nearly cost him his life. It is the summer of 1765. The renowned and exquisitely dressed portrait painter Joshua Pope accepts a commission to paint the wedding portrait of Herbert Bentnick and his fiancée, Sabine Mercer, to whom Bentnick has become engaged less than a year after the death of his first wife. Joshua has barely begun the portrait when a man's body is found in the conservatory. A few days later, Sabine's emerald necklace disappears, and Bentnick accuses Joshua of theft. The painter is suddenly fighting not only for his reputation but for his life. With a sure understanding of period detail and character, Janet Gleeson creates a richly nuanced tale of greed and revenge that plays out in the refined landscapes and dark streets of eighteenth-century London.

Book Summary:

The Amish offer a startling contrast to the postmodern view of sexuality and gender roles. After the sexual revolution of the 1960s, mainstream American culture never looked back. Meanwhile, the Amish never looked forward. In twenty-first-century Amish communities, heteronormative sexuality is still based on a unifying principle: an understanding of sexuality as emerging from a divine plan. In the eyes of the Amish, sex is squandered by those who embrace it as hedonistic or who carve out a sexual identity that moves them away from that singular, God-given purpose. But this communal emphasis on sex for procreation does not mean that the Amish do not possess a complex range of sexual identities and opinions. In Serpent in the Garden, clinical psychologist James A. Cates breaks new ground in the study of Amish sexuality by examining this shrouded, rarely discussed subject. The first book to bring Amish sexuality into primary focus, this volume argues that, because the Amish are a sexual minority, queer theory is the ideal framework from which to observe their views on sex, sexuality, and gender. The book offers a broad view of sexuality in Amish culture that includes the challenges that gays and lesbians face in the community, as well as an exploration of Amish gender roles, their views toward intimacy, their responses to cases of child sexual abuse, and the role of fetishes among the Amish. Cates draws from multiple perspectives and years of research on the Amish themselves. He also looks at pushback against alternative behaviors or identities, as well as Amish success in keeping mainstream values at bay. With this book, Cates establishes Amish sexuality as a topic worthy of professional attention. Offering readers a more sophisticated understanding of the Amish and of sexual expression among cultures, Serpent in the Garden will appeal to scholars working on gender and sexuality, the Amish, and social service professionals who serve the Amish community.

Book Summary:

In this hilarious mythological romp, the serpent from Eden finally gets to tell his side of the story. Eve and the serpent Bart from the Garden of Eden have been hiding out in Las Vegas, making their living performing for The Red Cherry and hoping to evade the power-hungry Dr. Adam, when the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for goddesses and otherworldly women to make a comeback arises. Harry Grey, a mere mortal and partner of the Chicago law firm Angle & Grey, gets the help of a telephone Texan psychic to perform a love spell on his ideal woman: the young, career-oriented, navy blue suit-wearing Fiona Vien. Harry has never had luck with women or life. If it weren't finding his partner Daniel Angle, an attorney with all the charm and good looks Harry never got, Harry probably wouldn't even be employed. Where Harry is great with paperwork and numbers, Daniel is talented with charming women and jurors. Harry inadvertently summons Eve as well as other ancient deities and creatures into his life and the lives of those he cares about. These deities and creatures haven't been able to appear on Earth for centuries because they did not have the requisite worship and energy from humans to do so. Harry's spell was enough to call them forth temporarily, and they have plans to stay this time. Eve sees this as her chance to get The Gospel According to Eve published and save the world from humanity, but Bart wants to go the more direct route and just speak to the people to get their story out. He also wants to find Lilith, Adam's original wife, and the forbidden fruit of Eden: jungle berries. Eve fears that if people get wind of Bart's speaking ability, his life will be in danger. Dr. Adam, the creator of a television show that is part weight loss, part drug rehab, part cognitive/behavioral therapy and part survival skill building, is coming to Las Vegas impart his wisdom on the beauty of using prescription medication, working hard and shopping. However, he arrives to find that only five people are waiting to see him, and his son Cain discovers that Eve and the talking snake have unknowingly stolen his audience. He quickly returns to his home in Chicago and hires Angle & Grey to bring down Eve and Bart's show.

Book Summary:

A lyrical and, at times, refreshingly humorous journey of one woman's search for her truth, this debut novel unfolds in a sequence of two alternating narratives. In the first story line Tildy Glick recounts the moment her boyfriend, Ray, ends their year-long relationship. The event is experienced as a trauma more painful than even Tildy believes may be warranted. Unwilling to accept the loss, she spends the next year attempting to hold onto Ray by methodically recalling the minutest memories of their time together. In the course of this obsessive process, she begins to observe that her own longings are rooted in a painful and emblematic childhood summer thirty years earlier. About to turn 13 she is obsessively attached to a mother who showers her with intrusive attention and, alternately, abandons her due to her interest in a married lover. Tildy is unprepared when her father, a man with a simmering sense of failure and an inability to express himself, leaves the family in the middle of the night after a fight with his wife, leaving Tildy and her older brother, Kenny, to contend with their mother's unraveling. These narratives resonate and play off one another in the way that memories intrude on, inform, and punctuate present experiences. The characters are profoundly human and profoundly flawed, hoping for greater things, helpless in the face of their own failings, yet determined to make sense of their own lives.

Book Summary:

When the book opens Eve, who is the narrator ,is just coming into consciousness. She has been given by God to the Serpent to raise. Her sense of wonder as the Serpent introduces her to life in Paradise is a strength of the book; she learns about nature, love and the way that the new and fascinating world works. When she comes into contact with God - who rears Adam - she is wary of his dominance and egotism.One day, becoming impatient to discover whether or not he`s designed the male and female to procreate properly, God rushes Adam and Eve into intercourse.The Serpent alone regcognizes the consequences of God`s act. `Until today Eve has felt...that the world was good...' but ' Adam as good as raped her.' Eve is devastated by the experience.Eve leaves the Garden to gain some distance from God and to discover what exists in the outside world; the Serpent accompanies her. They make several journeys - one to a volcano, one to a desert, one to a mountain range and one to the sea (where Eve swims out to sea against the instructions of the Serpent and nearly drowns.) On their return to the Garden, the roots of the apple tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil begin to grow; the Serpent sensing that time is running out to teach Eve that love making is good, changes into a man and makes love to her with great sensitivity. After this she is prepared to accept her role as the mother of humankind.God is outraged by Eve's - and also Adams's - interest in the tree of knowledge. He is at his capricious worst: everything must bow to his wishes. They realise that if they are to have any freedom of will they must leave God and the garden . The Serpent warns them that this will involve future suffering but Eve feels she must develop and be her own person.They go forth...

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller! "Absorbing and arresting." —New York Times "Fascinating and factual." —Los Angeles Times "Chilly, witty, and completely engrossing ... great, good fun." — Kirkus Reviews "An outstanding historical novel of 17th–century France ... based on a real–life scandal known as the Affaire des Poisons, this tale is riveting from start to finish." —Library Journal For a handful of gold, Madame de Morville will read your future in a glass of swirling water. You'll believe her, because you know she's more than 150 years old and a witch, and she has all of Paris in the palm of her hand. But Madame de Morville hides more behind her black robes than you know. Her real age, the mother and uncle who left her for dead, the inner workings of the most secret society of Parisian witches: none of these truths would help her outwit the rich who so desperately want the promise of the future. After all, it's her own future she must control , no matter how much it is painted with uncertainty and clouded by vengeance. "Take a full cup of wit, two teaspoons of brimstone, and a dash of poison, and you have Judith Merkle Riley's mordant, compelling tale of an ambitious young woman who disguises herself as an ancient prophetess in order to gain entry into the dangerous, scheming glamour of the Sun King's court. Based on scandalous true events, The Oracle Glass brims with our human foibles, passions, and eccentricities; it's a classic of the genre and unlike any historical novel you have ever read." —C. W.

Book Summary:

What if you encountered a dark and sinister character of not so subtle reputation? One whose origins are the very meaning of temptation and sin. What do we really know of creation, myth, and belief? There was a Man, a Woman, a Garden, and of course... a Serpent. Yet, what we have come to know as temptation, and mortal sin are only one side of the story. You see, three sinned, and three were punished, but only two were expelled from the Garden, but afterwards...what happened to the Serpent? A present day man finds himself eye to eye with the infamous Serpent of curse and ruin. The Serpent who characteristically makes the man an offer to learn not just what happened, but why. A tale unlike any other, where the fall of man is not weighed on a scale of good or evil, but in truth and lies. The Serpent whose intellect, sarcasm, and wit cultivates over time as he appraises the history of man and religious lore. The Serpent who is also on a journey of self-discovery to learn the meaning of that ill-fated encounter and the purpose of his own life. Come to know the unsung story of one who lived through creation, survived the great deluge, witnessed a mass exodus, and the rise and fall of exalted kings of men. Could such a tale, as told by a forked tongue, be the end of lies, and the beginning... of the truth.
