Kenneth Kitchen’s Ancient Orient and Old Testament Available as Free PDF

This book is an important, though slightly dated, contribution to understanding the OT in its ancient Near Eastern context. It is also quite useful for addressing a range of attacks on the integrity of the OT. Prof. Kitchen was for many years an Egyptologist in the UK, but his training and contributions extended into biblical studies. His book is reproduced by his permission...

It’s been number 1 in the angels and demons new releases category since it went up, and the overall sales rank of all books sold on Amazon (millions of them) has gotten as low as 3000.

PEERANORMAL Episode 07: DMT, Psychedelics, Religious Mysticism, and Paranormal Experiences

This episode focuses on entheogens—psychedelic drugs that are known to cause “mystical states” of consciousness. Our hosts discuss Rick Strassman’s work on DMT, but that is merely a subset of entheogen study. Current research in the fields of brain science, psychology, and religion are struggling to explain how entheogens and the experiences they cause should be understood. The dilemma of consciousness, more popularly known as the mind-body problem, is at the heart of the struggle. Do entheogens simply affect part of the brain and its chemistry triggering new states of consciousness from inside your head? Or do these drugs...
