The Shadow of His Wings
Author: Gereon Karl Goldmann
Publisher: Ignatius Press
We had to do it. We had to reprint this book. Rarely has a book had such an impact on so many of us here at Ignatius Press. It is one of the most powerful and moving books we have come across. If you can only buy one book this season, this must be the one. Here is the astonishing true story of the harrowing experiences of a young German seminarian drafted into Hitler's dreaded SS at the onset of World War II. Without betraying his Christian ideals, against all odds, and in the face of Evil, Gereon Goldmann was able to complete his priestly training, be ordained, and secretly minister to German Catholic soldiers and innocent civilian victims caught up in the horrors of war. How it all came to pass will astound you. Father Goldmann tells of his own incredible experiences of the trials of war, his many escapes from almost certain death, and the diabolical persecution that he and his fellow Catholic soldiers encountered on account of their faith. What emerges is an extraordinary witness to the workings of Divine Providence and the undying power of love, prayer, faith, and sacrifice. Illustrated
Wolfgang Flür was vital cog in the Kraftwerk machine, galvanising the group’s electric drum sound throughout the 1970’s and propelling the rhythmic backbone of iconic albums such as Autobahn and Electric Café. I Was A Robot is a detailed, evocative account, written in Flür’s no-nonsense style. It takes us from his youth into the band’s formation and touring of their influential works, laying bare the acrimonious break-up and court cases that later followed. This book is the final word on Kraftwerk, their continued influence and what it felt like to be a Man-Machine. ”This is a first-hand account of human life inside the robot factory. A world that I could barely have imagined as a 16-year-old Kraftwerk fan stranded in a suburb on the wrong side of the river from Liverpool. A window into a world that I could never have imagined.” Andy McCluskey, OMD ”Kraftwerk is a myth. Wolfgang is for real. Thus handsome elder statesman of Electronic Music gives a lot of useful inside information about the Men-Machines.” Rudi Esch, ELECRI_CITY
The Lost Time Accidents
Author: John Wray
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
In his ambitious and fiercely inventive new novel, The Lost Time Accidents, John Wray takes us from turn-of-the-century Viennese salons buzzing with rumors about Einstein's radical new theory to the death camps of World War Two, from the golden age of postwar pulp science fiction to a startling discovery in a Manhattan apartment packed to the ceiling with artifacts of modern life. Haunted by a failed love affair and the darkest of family secrets, Waldemar 'Waldy' Tolliver wakes one morning to discover that he has been exiled from the flow of time. The world continues to turn, and Waldy is desperate to find his way back-a journey that forces him to reckon not only with the betrayal at the heart of his doomed romance but also the legacy of his great-grandfather's fatal pursuit of the hidden nature of time itself. Part madcap adventure, part harrowing family drama, part scientific mystery--and never less than wildly entertaining--The Lost Time Accidents is a bold and epic saga set against the greatest upheavals of the twentieth century.

Barbara Ann Brennan continues her ground-breaking exploration of the human energy field, or aura—the source of our experience of health or illness.

In a unique approach that encourages a cooperative effort among healer, patient, and other health-care providers, Light Emerging explains what the healer perceives visually, audibly, and kinesthetically and how each of us can participate in every stage of the healing process. Presenting a fascinating range of research, from a paradigm of healing based on the science of holography to insights into the "hara level" and the "core star," Light Emerging is at the leading edge of healing practice in our time.
