<p>In this enchanting sequel to the number one bestseller <em>The Five People You Meet in Heaven,</em> Mitch Albom tells the story of Eddie’s heavenly reunion with Annie—the little girl he saved on earth—in an unforgettable novel of how our lives and losses intersect.</p><p>Fifteen years ago, in Mitch Albom’s beloved novel, <em>The Five People You Meet in Heaven,</em> the world fell in love with Eddie, a grizzled war veteran- turned-amusement park mechanic who died saving the life of a young girl named Annie. Eddie’s journey to heaven taught him that every life matters. Now, in this magical sequel, Mitch Albom reveals Annie’s story.</p><p>The accident that killed Eddie left an indelible mark on Annie. It took her left hand, which needed to be surgically reattached. Injured, scarred, and unable to remember why, Annie’s life is forever changed by a guilt-ravaged mother who whisks her away from the world she knew. Bullied by her peers and haunted by something she cannot recall, Annie struggles to find acceptance as she grows. When, as a young woman, she reconnects with Paulo, her childhood love, she believes she has finally  found happiness. </p><p>As the novel opens, Annie is marrying Paulo. But when her wedding night day ends in an unimaginable accident, Annie finds herself on her own heavenly journey—and an inevitable reunion with Eddie, one of the five people who will show her how her life mattered in ways she could not have fathomed.</p><p>Poignant and beautiful, filled with unexpected twists, <em>The Next Person You Meet in Heaven</em> reminds us that not only does every life matter, but that every ending is also a beginning—we only need to open our eyes to see it. </p>

To make the journey into the Now we will need to leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. From the very first page of Eckhart Tolle's extraordinary book, we move rapidly into a significantly higher altitude where we breathe a lighter air. We become connected to the indestructible essence of our Being, “The eternal, ever present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.” Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle uses simple language and an easy question and answer format to guide us. <br /><br />A word of mouth phenomenon since its first publication, The Power of Now is one of those rare books with the power to create an experience in readers, one that can radically change their lives for the better.

<p><strong><em>New York Times </em>bestseller</strong></p><p><strong>One of PW’s Best Books of the Year</strong></p><p><strong>One of Amazon’s Best Books of the Month</strong></p><p><p><strong>Why is religion still around in the twenty-first century? Why do so many still believe? And how do various traditions still shape the way people experience everything from sexuality to politics, whether they are religious or not? In <em>Why Religion</em><em>?</em> Elaine Pagels looks to her own life to help address these questions.</strong></p><p>These questions took on a new urgency for Pagels when dealing with unimaginable loss—the death of her young son, followed a year later by the shocking loss of her husband. Here she interweaves a personal story with the work that she loves, illuminating how, for better and worse, religious traditions have shaped how we understand ourselves; how we relate to one another; and, most importantly, how to get through the most difficult challenges we face. </p><p>Drawing upon the perspectives of neurologists, anthropologists, and historians, as well as her own research, Pagels opens unexpected ways of understanding persistent religious aspects of our culture. </p><p>A provocative and deeply moving account from one of the most compelling religious thinkers at work today, <em>Why Religion?</em> explores the spiritual dimension of human experience.</p><p></p>
