A journey through 20,000 years of history and myth in search of the answer to a single question: Do animals have souls? Anyone who has ever mourned the loss of a cherished pet has wondered about the animal soul. Do animals survive the death of the body, or are they doomed to disappear completely when they leave this world behind? Both scientists and religious authorities have long scoffed at the idea of animals in heaven. Yet the question endures. In this wise, immensely readable book, Ptolemy Tompkins embarks on a quest for the answer – taking us on a top-speed tour of the history of the animal soul. Equally at home with mainstream and alternative spiritual philosophies, Tompkins takes us from the savannas of Africa to the earth’s first cities to the early days of the great faith traditions of both East and West.

The Divine Life of Animals offers a compelling and timeless vision of the relationship between humans and animals that will have you looking at the animals in your life with new eyes.

Notes from the Edge Times, by Daniel Pinchbeck (Tarcher/Penguin), $23.95, 208 pages,
Often referred to as a Timothy Leary for our current age, Daniel Pinchbeck is known for examining current issues from an intelligent and countercultural perspective. In his highly anticipated new book (release date October 14), Pinchbeck explores the “edge realms,” touching upon topics ranging from the financial collapse to our need for a new media paradigm to the meaning of 2012. In the process, he challenges readers to consider some pressing questions:

  • “[A]t a time when war has become a ‘permanent social relation,’ and the planet’s life support systems are in jeopardy,” can we really cut ourselves off from political and societal involvement?
  • Does our monetary system require a fundamental redesign?
  • How can the millions of us who currently practice disciplines such as Buddhism, Yoga and Shamanism apply our spiritual ideals in a spiritual movement?
  • Can we overcome deeply ingrained cultural stereotypes to spark a new sexual revolution defined by self-awareness and acceptance?

Pope Annalisa: Book One of the First Souls Trilogy, a novel by Peter Canova (Trimountaine Publishing), $26.95, 472 pages,
What forces were at work when the unthinkable became reality and an African nun was elected the first female pope? Amid conflicting prophecies of destruction and renewal she came. She is a healer, a miracle worker, a captivator of men’s souls. But when demonic-looking symbols begin appearing around the Vatican upon her arrival, were her enemies correct about her being the prophesied figure that would destroy the church and lead the world order to ruin? As the world nears nuclear holocaust, four people must race against time to learn her secret. As sinister hidden forces from within her own church and terrorism from without rear their heads, one thing becomes crystal clear – Pope Annalisa is at the very center of all the deadly plots within plots in a world where nothing is as it seems. And though it was a miracle for a woman to become pope, it will be a far greater miracle if she survives. Peter Canova has written a trilogy entitled The First Souls, concerning the first awakening of spirit into materiality in the form of human consciousness. Pope Annalisa is the first book of the series.

When Prayers Aren’t Answered: Opening the Heart and Quieting the Mind during Challenging Times, by John E. Welshons (New World Library), $14.95, 296 pages,
In the depths of grief, some find solace in their faith while others wonder why God has deserted them. In this gentle and wise guide, a beloved spiritual teacher counsels that prayer works – but not always in the ways we expect. Welshons, who has worked closely with Ram Dass, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, and Stephen Levine, confronts life’s most challenging experiences directly, acknowledging both the reality and inevitability of suffering. Then, with insights gathered from the world’s spiritual traditions, he demonstrates how to use painful circumstances as fuel for enlightenment. Welshons shares stories of transformation from his own life and the lives of those he has counseled. With the empathy of experience, he lights a path toward the communion, peace, and even joy possible not in spite of suffering, but through it.
