This is a modern day true story of the bible coming to life in the 21st century as a mother and son overcome the “sticky” situation of addiction. It contains 12 easy to read chapters turning the 12 steps of recovery on their head, literally by doing yoga inversions. Each chapter highlights one of the 12 miracles experienced by the mother who commemorates them in 12 cupcake recipes with flavors such as: “Out of the Dark Chocolate into the White Light”, and “Go Bananas for God with Peanut Butter,” as she bakes her way through 5pm happy hour instead of drinking. The book shakes up the notion of what an alcoholic looks and acts like. You can be a very successful athlete, professional, and drinker. It dispels the myths that you have to wait to hit rock bottom in order to get help and that getting and staying sober has to be some nail biting miserable ride. Her ride is covered in bumper stickers celebrating the speedbumps overcome along the road to recovery. Join the ride and learn how to “Get Hooked on Hope, One Step at a Time.”

In Jesus Was a Shaktipat Guru, Sw. Shraddhananda positions Jesus alongside other Jagadgurus (the highest kind of Guru, a world class teacher) who are capable of leading spiritual seekers to the "peace which passeth understanding," a state of consciousness known in the Indian religions as Santosha, or contentment. Shaktipat is a Guru's awakening of the Holy Spirit or Maha Kundalini Shakti by look, touch, or will. Upon contemplation, Jesus Was a Shaktipat Guru takes seekers into a deeper encounter with the sacred energy which leads to enlightenment. This book promises to re-ignite your spiritual experience by exploring the way Jesus grounds the Holy Spirit in the heart of Christianity -- and in the center of the world's religions.
People in India form images of Jesus Christ that link up with their own culture. Hindus have given Jesus a place among the teachers and gods of their own religion, seeing in his life something of the wisdom and mysticism that is so central to Hinduism. Christians in India also make use of the concepts provided by Hinduism when they wish to express the meaning of Christ.Thus, in any case, Jesus is—for Hindus and Christians—a guru, a teacher of wisdom who speaks with divine authority. But for many Hindu philosophers and Christian theologians there is much more that can be said about him within the Indian framework. He can be described as anavatara, a divine descent, or linked to the Brahman, the all-encompassing Reality. This study looks at both Hindu and Christian views of Christ, starting with that of the Hindu reformer Rammohan Roy at the beginning of the nineteenth century, as well as those of the first Christian theologians of India. The views of Mahatma Gandhi and the monks of the Ramakrishna Mission are discussed, and those of influential Christian schools such as the Ashram movement anddalit theology.Five intermezzos indicate how artists in India portray Jesus Christ.

I do believe that the kind of New Testament survey material that Dr. Imperato has prepared can stimulate the interest of newcomers to the field, especially college undergraduates and others who have a cultural connection to the Bible but very slender acquaintance with it. The observation of parallel versions of the same pericope in the gospels is usually a new and intriguing experience for this constituency, which is often predisposed to consider the sacred texts dryly uniform and threadbare. In respect to Paul, there is next to no undistorted prior exposure to build upon, especially among Catholics, so an introduction to his prominent themes — but only with understanding of his texts as genuine letters, not treatises — can arouse interest in further assisted reading. Dr. Imperato's sketches are properly dedicated to such reading assistance, not to furnishing "cliff notes" in place of the Bible. This is why I think his work can be of considerable educational value. — The Rev. Dr. Richard J. Dillon, Senior Professor of Theology (New Testament), Fordham University, former general editor of the Catholic Biblical Quarterly
