As a child in a non-religious family, Michael Ridenour found a Bible one day and began reading. Initially excited by its lively stories, he paused at the New Testament, faced with a baffling inner question: Where in the world is Christ today? An unexpected answer came during his teenage years with a spontaneous experience of the Christ being, but this only led to more questions. Later, discovering the work of Rudolf Steiner, he found the authentic vision and language he needed to clarify and better comprehend his own experiences, but the questions kept coming. The Greatest Gift Ever Given is a fruit of Ridenour’s life-long search for answers: a book that is at once deeply thoughtful, humorous, philosophical and poetic. In Part I, ‘Raising the Foundation’, he studies the Judeo-Christian mysteries. After humanity’s ‘fall’ into materialism, these mysteries signal the development of human individuality. The impulse for self-hood continues with Christ, who brings a new path of divine love. But the mystery of Christ leads naturally to his shadow. Today, we can no longer escape the question: Where in the world is Judas? Without Judas’s betrayal, Christ’s greatest gift could never have been given. We can’t reject Judas, but should transform him within ourselves. In Part II, ‘Lowering the Temple’, Ridenour relates the theme of metamorphosis to the contemporary world. Once guided by initiates, personal transformation now needs to blossom from within each individual human soul. The topic of evolution takes us to a consideration of the perennially-controversial Charles Darwin, as well as the intuitive approach of Goethe and the living thinking of Rudolf Steiner. A rich treasure-trove of ideas, The Greatest Gift Ever Given sharpens a dynamic focus on current spiritual needs and contributes a thought-provoking response to them.

‘Finding unity with Christ is not a given; it depends on turning the ego – that provides our sense of experiencing ourselves as a unique being – into an instrument of loving perception that connects with other beings. Learning to do this makes the path to Christ a path of self-knowledge, where the freedom to make mistakes and consequent error lets us see ourselves with humility as we come to know how to bring love into what we say and do.’ (From the Introduction.) In order for human beings to progress, contends the author, we can no longer rely on outer authority in the form of dogma, power and control. Rather, we need to find spiritual and creative solutions from within. Fundamentally, we should discover what makes us truly human and not merely animal. ‘The direction of this book is to indicate how this may be addressed in artistic and imaginative terms that touch the powder, so to speak, with a different fire that ignites a different future.’ With Meditations, Michael S. Ridenour provides a fresh and varied look at themes explored in his recent book The Greatest Gift Ever Given. The more meditative, intimate format of this short volume allows content and mode of expression to complement each other by expanding these themes into realms of individual experience. Part One does this by making use of a shorter poetic-commentary presentation, allowing greater variety and flexibility of focus. Part Two builds on paths of individual initiation from the esoteric Christian tradition, showing how they address contemporary concerns for greater spiritual awareness and a more perceptive quality of consciousness. Meditations is a thoughtful work that offers support for understanding and practising the contemporary spiritual path.

Does God really exist? Are science and religion incompatible bedfellows? Surprisingly, Charles Darwin himself, whose theory of evolution did more than anything to ignite these fundamental debates, refrained from commenting in depth about its philosophical implications for fear of creating yet greater furor. But suppose that he did in fact write down his conclusions, and kept them as a secret addendum to his seminal work, Origin of Species. And suppose his beloved wife Emma, a devout Christian, kept her own secret journal detailing their extraordinary life together, and was the only other person to know of this hidden postscript. Survival of the Fittest is a new novel about a modern-day detective search for these two hugely significant works. Its central character, Maurice, is an eccentric London antiquarian book dealer hired by an equally eccentric American billionaire to track down the documents for his world famous collection of original manuscripts. Maurice’s complex investigation ranges across England, and involves him in encounters ranging from the criminal to the romantic and the revelatory. Along the way, he discovers the spiritual struggle within the extraordinary Darwin household, and the effects of that same struggle on the creation of the atom bomb and on modern terrorism. As the hunt becomes more and more intense, the question arises of what to do with the findings. Do we really want to know, or will the answer just stir up a hornet’s nest?

This book presents a reading of the Nietzschean thought of the eternal return of all things and relates it to Freud's psychoanalysis of the repetition compulsion. Nietzsche's eternal return and Freud's repetition compulsion have never before been so seriously compared. The manner in which this study is executed is drastically different from usual Nietzsche scholarship and Freud studies. Chapelle works with his material until it acquires archetypal levels of significance, even while the level of everyday life experience is never abandoned. He returns the theory and practice of psychologizing and philosophizing to the old ground of imaginative poetic and ultimately mythic thought.
