As if this wasn't enough, Blair has been thrown together with Larkin - the handsome, flirtatious and downright infuriating shapeshifter. After a couple of terrifying run-ins with one of Lilith's loyal followers, Blair begins to wonder - can she stay alive long enough to defeat Lilith's army? And can she protect her heart from Larkin's dangerous charms?

Dancing with the Gods: Essays in Ga Ritual explores cosmological concepts and ritual actions of the Ga people of southeastern Ghana through case studies of calendrical agricultural rites, social status transition rites, and redressive rites. Based on fieldwork in the 1960s, the essays present descriptive analyses of verbal and non-verbal ritual action. While verbal ritual actions specify ideas pertinent to a particular rite, non-verbal ritual actions express more general concepts. Kilson’s analyses show how the same motifs of non-verbal ritual action recur in sacred and secular Ga rites. Whenever and wherever such motifs occur, they convey the same basic underlying Ga concepts, thereby creating a unified conceptual network of belief that is the foundation of the Ga ritual system. The essays in this collection previously appeared in Anthropos, Journal of African Studies, Journal of Religion in Africa, Parabola, and Sextant.

The Maya of Mexico and Central America have performed ritual dances for more than two millennia. Dance is still an essential component of religious experience today, serving as a medium for communication with the supernatural. During the Late Classic period (AD 600-900), dance assumed additional importance in Maya royal courts through an association with feasting and gift exchange. These performances allowed rulers to forge political alliances and demonstrate their control of trade in luxury goods. The aesthetic values embodied in these performances were closely tied to Maya social structure, expressing notions of gender, rank, and status. Dance was thus not simply entertainment, but was fundamental to ancient Maya notions of social, religious, and political identity. Using an innovative interdisciplinary approach, Matthew Looper examines several types of data relevant to ancient Maya dance, including hieroglyphic texts, pictorial images in diverse media, and architecture. A series of case studies illustrates the application of various analytical methodologies and offers interpretations of the form, meaning, and social significance of dance performance. Although the nuances of movement in Maya dances are impossible to recover, Looper demonstrates that a wealth of other data survives which allows a detailed consideration of many aspects of performance. To Be Like Gods thus provides the first comprehensive interpretation of the role of dance in ancient Maya society and also serves as a model for comparative research in the archaeology of performance.

In Cambodia, classical dance is the quintessence of the country's identity. An art form that was religious in origin, its traditions date back more than a thousand years to the great Khmer empire. Dancers performed in temples at Angkor and were the living embodiment of those celestial dancers carved on the temple walls. The history of Cambodian dance, the relationship with Siamese costumes, the role of the French in introducing the dancers to the west, the Reamker epic from which many of the dances are drawn and the stories of dancers who survived the dark period in Cambodian history to revive classical dance today are all related in this fascinating and beautifully illustrated book. AUTHOR: Denise Heywood lived and worked in Cambodia for many years, specialising in the study of Khmer dance. 200 colour illustrations

If we are honest, most of us will admit that our understanding of God is vague, no matter how much we profess our love. No wonder Nietzsche famously asked for a better God than a blustering old man or a nameless nothing. How do you love an unseen some One or some Thing? A God Who Dances, a summary of the Bhagavad-gita and Bhagavat-Purana (including a poeticized version of the 10th Canto) introduces you to Krishna. Krishna means “the all-attractive person.” Knowing Krishna will bring you a windfall of spiritual understanding and realization about the nature of God.

First published in 1935, this rare and unusual travel book takes us into the virtually unknown world of Mongolia, a country that only now, after 70 years, is finally opening up to the west. Haslund, a Danish-Swedish explorer, takes us to the lost city of Karakota in the Gobi desert. We meet the Bodgo Gegen, a god-king in Mongolia similar to the Dalai Lama of Tibet.

Aside from the esoteric and mystical material, there is plenty of just plain adventure.

Recorded in sacred Sanskrit texts, including the Rig Veda and the Mahabharata, Hindu Myths are thought to date back as far as the tenth century BCE. Here in these seventy-five seminal myths are the many incarnations of Vishnu, who saves mankind from destruction, and the mischievous child Krishna, alongside stories of the minor gods, demons, rivers and animals including boars, buffalo, serpents and monkeys. Immensely varied and bursting with colour and life, they demonstrate the Hindu belief in the limitless possibilities of the world - from the teeming miracles of creation to the origins of the incarnation of Death who eventually touches them all.

In other words—dancing for the living God, as the name says—this book is to encourage people to use their talent of dance, especially the classical Indian dances, to praise and glorify our God—Jesus, in addition to using as a means to spread the word of God to people who have never heard about Jesus and who may not even have any interest to hear about Jesus until and unless it is presented in an attractive, interesting way. This book consists of personal testimony of my life: how God has molded me into the person that I am today; how I communicate with the best friend—Jesus—that I came to know from the sufferings and disappointments in my family life, to have faith in one and only God, Jesus, who never breaks His promises even when we stray away from Him; the joy and peace that I have today; and how my outlook of life has changed because of that divine presence. When we surrender our life to God, how blessed we become not just for our family but to others as well and then we have desire to do nothing but the Will of God—when we know what is our purpose on this earth of our existence.
