Spikenard is probably best known for being the oil which Mary of Bethany used to anoint Jesus's feet before he was crucified, but question is...was it really the same plant? In these days of immediate internet answers we take information as gospel, but often the research lacks depth and understanding. A cursory research for a blog post, at Christmas, uncovered possible problems with the identification of the plant, and the book opens up hundreds of years of scholars ideas about what this "Nard of the Ancients" might have been. Investigating Greco-Roman medicine with Tantric and Ayurvedic medicine the book weighs the argument for Nardostachys jatamansi being the sacred plant of the Hebrews. What is in no doubt though, is Nardostachys has been used for thousands of years in the East with the most extraordinary results. Not least, is the phenomenal story of the healing in the nineteenth century cholera epidemics, where the plant saved tens of thousands of lives in Russia but was unbelievably ignored in Britain, despite medical advice, as equal numbers were murdered by the disease.Today, as aromatherapists, we acknowledge it as being the most potent sedative in our tool box. We recognise its digestive qualities and astounding effects in reducing fevers. Here, we examine its medicine over the last seven thousand years, right up to the samples zipping around centrifuges today, and we ask how different will spikenard's medicine of the future look from that of the Ancient Hebrews, Egyptians, Romans and Greeks. Understand the uses of the oil we use for: * Anxiety* Insomnia* Digestive Problems* Fever* EpilepsyWe begin to understand how the plant may have given Christ the resources he needed to face the cross. Soar with the phoenix of antiquity (whose nest was also said to be made of spikenard) and learn how it is that someone is able to face the unthinkable and to remain steadfast in spite of their of deepest fears.Click "Buy" to learn about one of the most precious plants on the planet and how you can use its essence to transform yours and your family's lives.

Gospel harmonies were inevitable. One of the first impulses of someone studying a teaching or an event in Jesus' life is to seek as many perspectives on that event as possible. Around AD 160 Tatian compiled a single narrative of the four Gospels, reducing the number of verses from 3,780 (four separate Gospels) to 2,769 verses without excluding any event or teaching from the life of Jesus. This Holman Christian Standard Harmony of the Gospels builds on a tradition of harmonization begun in the 19TH century by John A. Broadus and continued by his protege, A.T. Robertson. The HCSB Harmony contains the full text of the each of the four Gospels in the Holman Christian Standard Bible. The Harmony contains interpretive and clarifying notes by a number of scholars, some with differing views on the relationship between various Gospel accounts. Beyond the Harmony, this volume includes articles designed to address issues that arise when one compares the four Gospels and seeks to give an integrated account of the life and teachings of Jesus. The HCSB Harmony is unique in that it contains eight four-color maps that illuminate the life and ministry of Jesus. This resource will be valuable to pastors, lay Bible teachers, and will serve well as a primary textbook in college and seminary courses on the Gospels and on the Life and Teachings of Jesus.

A compelling new interpretation of early Mormonism, Samuel Brown's In Heaven as It Is On Earth views this religion through the lens of founder Joseph Smith's profound preoccupation with the specter of death. Revisiting historical documents and scripture from this novel perspective, Brown offers new insight into the origin and meaning of some of Mormonism's earliest beliefs and practices. The world of early Mormonism was besieged by death--infant mortality, violence, and disease were rampant. A prolonged battle with typhoid fever, punctuated by painful surgeries including a threatened leg amputation, and the sudden loss of his beloved brother Alvin cast a long shadow over Smith's own life. Smith embraced and was deeply influenced by the culture of "holy dying"--with its emphasis on deathbed salvation, melodramatic bereavement, and belief in the Providential nature of untimely death--that sought to cope with the widespread mortality of the period. Seen in this light, Smith's treasure quest, search for Native origins, distinctive approach to scripture, and belief in a post-mortal community all acquire new meaning, as do early Mormonism's Masonic-sounding temple rites and novel family system. Taken together, the varied themes of early Mormonism can be interpreted as a campaign to extinguish death forever. By focusing on Mormon conceptions of death, Brown recasts the story of first-generation Mormonism, showing a religious movement and its founder at once vibrant and fragile, intrepid and unsettled, human and otherworldly. A lively narrative history, In Heaven as It Is on Earth illuminates not only the foundational beliefs of early Mormonism but also the larger issues of family and death in American religious history.
