Stigma ; And, The Cave

These two novels complete D. H. Melhem's trilogy, Patrimonies, that began with Blight. Stigma, a dark political satire, and The Cave, a post-nuclear fantasy, confront the crucial issue facing this generation: what kind of world will be our legacy? Unsettling and sometimes terrifying, both novels center on ideological paradoxes created by a military-industrial government pitted against American individualist politics. Stigma offers a vision of civil unrest, unemployment, and a chronic state of war. Books are recycled as toilet paper. Families are conscripted by lottery for the honor of war-work. Selected adults serve in a bizarre bomb factory. Youths are inducted into military service, children relegated to orphanages. Scathing yet awash in dark humor, Stigma relates one family's struggle to survive in and escape a system of perversity and horror. The Cave describes a motley group of people who flee to an abandoned cave, seeking shelter from a nuclear attack. Inside, viciousness, cowardice, and heroic gestures ironically transform their lives into a war. and individual desires, religious beliefs and stark reality move toward a cataclysmic finale, in which one man retrieves a sign of faith. Sparsely poetic, simple in tone but rich in allusion, Melhem's writing in The Cave, as in Stigma and in Blight, beckons readers to lift themselves out of their own lived reality, to look at the strange and threatening clouds on the not-so-distant horizon.

And in the days of Nimrod, the mighty man (or giant), a fire appeared which ascended from the earth, and Nimrod went down, and looked at it, and worshipped it, and he established priests to minister there, and to cast incense from it. From that day the Persians began to worship fire...-from "The Fourth Thousand Years"One of the most prolific and respected Egyptologists of the Victorian era, Budge here offers his translation of the 4th-century A.D. Syrian text commonly known as "the Cave of Treasures," a history of the world from the Creation to the crucifixion of Christ and considered by some to be an apocryphal book of the Bible. Budge's extensive notes, linking the work to other ancient writings, as well as the numerous illustrations, make this unusual work, first published in 1927, an excellent resource for students of ancient civilizations and comparative mythology.SIR E. A. WALLIS BUDGE (1857-1934) was curator of Egyptian and Assyrian antiquities at the British Museum from 1894 to 1924. Among his many works of translation and studies of ancient Egyptian religion and ritual is his best-known project, The Egyptian Book of the Dead.

Beliefs are not shown to be true just because people find them comforting or inspiring. Such is the wisdom to be found in Abandon the Cave: Faith's Seductive Virtual Reality. The fool hath said in his heart, "There is no God" (Psalm 14:1). This book is a heartfelt reply from the fool! The author, once a devout Christian and now atheist, challenges claims made by religion of any kind. Religions place significance on a unique narrative, featuring accounts of fantastic deeds or words attributed to a mystic or sage. Underlying these narratives are two core mythologies often shared by different faiths. The first is a belief that the real world is immaterial, is populated by a deity or deities, hosts of acolytes or demons, and that this world of ours is a mere shadow. The second of these myths reveals itself in magical thinking, miracles and divine activities free from physical causation. This exposes a desire to transcend physical and material limitations to find fulfilment of wishes and desires, as well as to escape from fears of failure or death. Isn't it time to learn the truth and Abandon the Cave?
