After spending two years in bed with Lyme disease, Steven Kotler had lost everything: his health, his job, his girl, and, he was beginning to suspect, his mind. Kotler, not a religious man, suddenly found himself drawn to the sport of surfing as if it were the cornerstone of a new faith. Why, he wondered, when there was nothing left to believe in, could he begin to believe in something as unlikely as surfing? What was belief anyway? How did it work in the body, the brain, our culture, and human history? With the help of everyone from rebel surfers to rocket scientists, Kotler undertakes a three-year globetrotting quest. The results are a startling mix of big waves and bigger ideas: a surfer's journey into the biological underpinnings of belief itself.

A spiritual and scientific surf quest. After spending two years in bed with Lyme disease, Steven Kotler had lost everything: his health, his job, his girl, and, he was beginning to suspect, his mind. Kotler, not a religious man, suddenly found himself drawn to the sport of surfing as if it were the cornerstone of a new faith. Why, he wondered, when there was nothing left to believe in, could he begin to believe in something as unlikely as surfing. What was belief anyway? How did it work in the body, the brain, our culture, and human history? Into this mix came a strange story. In 2003, on a surf trip through Mexico, Kotler heard of "the conductor," a mythical surfer who could control the weather. He'd heard this same tale eight years earlier, in Indonesia, but this time something clicked. With the help of everyone from rebel surfers to rocket scientists, Kotler undertakes a three year globetrotting quest for the origins of this legend. The results are a startling mix of big waves and bigger ideas: a surfer's journey into the biological underpinnings of belief itself.

West of Jesus is a condensed journey through Church history that establishes the Orthodox Church as the Body of Christ, as the Church founded by the Lord Jesus in the first century. Protestantism’s schism ended in the abandonment of Holy Tradition. This resulted in the relegation of sacraments to mere symbols, a misunderstanding of the process of salvation, and other misunderstandings of Scripture.

Thousands have fallen in love with the anonymously authored book The Way of a Pilgrim - the account of an ordinary man's encounter with the Eastern Orthodox Christian practice of the Jesus Prayer, which consists of the constant repetition of a short phrase such as "Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy upon me." The practice transformed the author's life as he wandered throughout the Russian countryside saying the prayer and recording his experiences with it. Readers of the book in its time would have had a wealth of teachers to approach for learning the prayer themselves and working with it, but modern readers have nowhere to go for this. Here, then, is the perfect introduction to this life-changing practice, as it was taught by one of the great spiritual lights of Russia. Bishop Ignatius Brianchaninov provides wise instruction and advice covering all aspects of the practice, from how to get started, to dealing with difficulties that arise, to dealing with the people who don't understand what you're doing, to making the Jesus Prayer (also called the Prayer of the Heart), an integrated part of your life.
