On Loving God: De Diligendo Deo
Bernard of Clairvaux

Eremitical Press, 2009

We should love God because he first loved us and also for his many gifts to us. Christians more than others should know this. Loving God brings a reward of peace we cannot find in earthly things. There are four degrees of love for God. It is natural that it should begin with loving God for selfish reasons, but we can love God at a higher level by loving our neighbors and by loving God for his own sake, to the extent that we love him without even ...

Shadow of the Third Century: A Revaluation of Christianity
Alvin Boyd Kuhn

Eremitical Press, 2010

Shadow of the Third Century begins with the assertions that a true history of Christianity has never before been written and that the roots of the Christian religion lie in earlier religions and philosophies of the ancient world. Christianity as we know it, says Kuhn, took the form it did due to a degeneration of knowledge rather than to an energization produced by a new release of light and truth into the world. In the ancient world, knowledge ...
  
  











  



  
Dissertation on the Nature of True Virtue
Jonathan Edwards

Eremitical Press, 2010

What does it mean to be virtuous? How is virtue connected to the love of God? These are the questions Jonathan Edwards sets out to answer in his dissertation on the nature of true virtue. With relentless logic, Edwards argues from common experience to general principles. He distinguishes between primary and secondary forms of virtue and shows that the highest human actions must necessarily arise from a clear sense of God's purpose.

Mysticism: Christian and Buddhist
