Centuries have passed since the last crusader knight laid down his sword, but the Crusades continue to hold sway over our world. Because the Crusades have been so consequential to history, it´s essential to understand the context, motivations, and preconditions of these dramatic military campaigns. In doing so, you´ll not only get a fresher understanding of the Crusades, you´ll discover surprising truths about why (and how) they were fought. More than just an enriching recount of events, this series of 24 lectures is an intellectually rewarding exploration of how the Crusades shaped the medieval world and laid the seeds for our own. Plunging you into the series of Crusades to the Holy Land and elsewhere - from the calling of the First Crusade in 1095 to the collapse of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, in 1291 - Professor Daileader´s lectures are filled with eye-opening insights and gripping stories that will help you reach your own conclusions about just how important these centuries of warfare were to the story of human civilization.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1.

For centuries travelers have been drawn to the stunning and mysterious Dead Sea and Jordan River, a region that is unlike any other on earth in its religious and historical significance. In this exceptionally engaging book, Barbara Kreiger chronicles the natural and human history of these storied bodies of water, drawing on accounts by travelers, pilgrims, and explorers from ancient times to the present. She conveys the blend of spiritual, touristic, and scientific motivations that have driven exploration and describes the modern exploitation of the lake and the surrounding area through mineral extraction and agriculture. Today, both lake and river are in crisis, and stewardship of these water resources is bound up with political conflicts in the region. The Dead Sea and the Jordan River combines history, literature, travelogue, and natural history in a way that makes it hard to put down. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Becky White.

For the Celtic people of ancient Ireland, the natural world was a continuous prayer. Each mountain held a soul, each river a heart. This ´´Eucharist of nature´´ was living evidence of a divine worldview to which each Celt, as part of the ´´Great Circle´´, belonged. Like the fierce and loving people who beheld it, this sacred vision vanished with the coming of Christianity in the fifth century. Or did it? In The Invisible World, scholar and poet John O´Donohue recovers Celtic spirituality´s original mysteries, sharing practices and beliefs that enrich Ireland and its people to this day. For the Celts all life was sacred, yet they reserved their greatest reverence not for what they could see but for what they could not. Around them they sensed an ´´invisible world´´, the great unknown from which they came and the source of eternal wonder in their lives. Through prayer, O´Donohue teaches, we may enter directly into this secret immensity and escape the psychological prisons we create for ourselves. Alive with loving scholarship and interwoven with prayers and poetry in the Celtic tradition, The Invisible World is an invitation to find freedom from your negativity and return your soul to the grace that is waiting unseen around you at this very moment. 1.

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Little Book of Lykke written and read by Meik Wiking. Lykke (Luu-kah) (n): Happiness It´s easy to see why Denmark is often called the world´s happiest country. Not only do they have equal parental leave for men and women, free higher education and trains that run on time, but they burn more candles per household than anywhere else. So nobody knows more about happiness - what the Danes call lykke - than Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen and author of the best-selling sensation The Little Book of Hygge. But he believes that, whilst we can certainly learn a lot from the Danes about finding fulfilment, the keys to happiness are actually buried all around the globe. In this captivating audiobook, he takes us on a treasure hunt to unlock the doors to inner fulfilment. From how we spend our precious time, to how we relate to our neighbours and cook dinner, he gathers evidence, stories and tips from the very happiest corners of the planet. This is the ultimate guide to how we can all find a little more lykke in our lives. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Meik Wiking.
