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?

Cipriano Algor, an ageing potter, lives with his daughter and her husband in the shadow of the Centre, a nebulous, constantly expanding conglomerate that provides his livelihood - until it decrees that it is no longer interested in his humble wares. Together with his daughter, they craft a new line of small ceramic figurines and, to their bafflement, the Centre orders vast quantities. But once the figures are complete, the Centre recants: there is no market for them. Resigned to idleness Cipriano moves into the soulless megaplex, until late one night he comes across a horrifying secret in the bowels of the artificial city. The Cave is a harrowing, joyful masterpiece: an Orwellian nightmare, a family fable and an uplifting love story.

Since the inception of Dead Sea Scrolls research, a central theory has emerged, which asserts that the scrolls belonged to the Essenes, a sect whose center was at the nearby site of Qumran. In "Out of the Cave," philosopher Edna Ullmann-Margalit focuses on this theory, exploring the different arenas, and ways, in which contesting theories of the scrolls do battle. In this context she finds fascinating examples of issues that only amplify the already intrinsic interest of the Dead Sea scrolls.

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.
