The best-selling author of Head Strong and The Bulletproof Diet answers the question 'how do I kick more ass?' - providing proven techniques for becoming happier, healthier and smarter, culled from the wisdom and insight of world-class thought leaders and mavericks of science and business.When Dave Asprey started his Bulletproof Radio podcast more than five years ago, he sought out thought leaders and influencers in an array of disciplines, from biochemists to business titans to mediation masters. These folks were some of the top performing humans in the world, people who had changed their areas of study or even pioneered entirely new fields. Dave wanted to know: What did they have in common? What mattered most to them? What makes them so successful at what they do - and what makes them happiest? And so, at the end of each interview, Dave began asking the same question: 'What are your top three recommendations for people who want to kick more ass?'Combing through the recordings, looking for patterns and common threads, he found that the wisdom gleaned from these highly successful people can be distilled into three main categories: body, mind, and spirit. Game Changers is the culmination of Dave’s years-long statistical analysis of these conversations, offering 36 science-backed, high-performance 'laws' that are a virtual playbook for how to become not only more successful but also happier and healthier.Each chapter of Game Changers is structured around one of these laws. Dave combines anecdotes from game changers like Daniel Amen, David Perlmutter, Arianna Huffington, Dan Harris and Tim Ferris with his own research and practical advice that listeners can put into action immediately. From practising gratitude and mindfulness to prioritising social connections and sex, taming fear and anxiety to optimising nutrition and movement, Dave brings together the wisdom of today’s game changers to help everyone optimis 1.

Hasan Mustapa
55,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Conversations about the role and value of Islamic diversity in Indonesias Islamic public sphere are becoming more frequent and intense. For some Muslims, homogeneity is a precondition for a prosperous and pious community. For others, diversity is a resource that is necessary for creating a just society, and for preserving Indonesias religious, political and social distinctiveness. Indonesias regional Islamic traditions are increasingly being cited as reference points in these conversations. Hasan Mustapa (18571930) was a scholar, mystic and poet who studied in Mecca for thirteen years before commencing his career as an Islamic official in the Netherlands East Indies. He wrote a number of sufistic treatises on Islamic belief and practice, mostly in the Sundanese language. To the surprise of many, his name and writings are now being more frequently referenced in public discourse. Indonesians are becoming more interested in his work, which they interpret as a characteristically Indonesian mediation of Islamic concepts belonging to the intellectual lineage of figures such as Ibn al-Arabi (d. 1240) and Abd al-Karim Al-Jili (d. 1424). Apart from that, members of the Sundanese ethnic group of West Java, who currently number around forty million, have shown renewed interest in his work as a model for nurturing a pro-diversity ethic in the provinces unsettled Islamic public sphere. Hasan Mustapa is comprised of chapters by Sundanese scholars, alongside the editors contributions. Some provide introductions to Mustapas life and work, while others perform a discursive move of increasing importance in contemporary Indonesia: reaching into a regional Islamic past to make authoritative statements about the present. Together, the chapters form a timely addition to the literature on a question of growing importance: what influence should regional traditions have in contemporary Islamic societies?

Christ at the Crux

How can Christian theology confess God as both other than the world and also related to it in a way that compromises neither of these? Most modern thought has offered a simple reply: it cannot. Christ at the Crux analyzes one element of the roots of this denial and charts a route toward rapprochement. The Christologies of eight theologians offer various attempts to relate the Creator and the creature in Christ: Irenaeus of Lyon, Cyril of Alexandria, John Philoponus, Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Zizioulas, Robert Jenson, and Colin Gunton. Within the patristic era the question is grounded in theology about the incarnation; with the Reformers the focus is on the mediation between creation and Creator; and with the three modern theologians the breadth of the issue is completed with theology proper. Together, these eight offer a grand-scale perspective on much of the christological possibilities for conceiving the relation between God and everything else. In the end Paul Cumin shows how the doctrine of the Trinity appears to open new possibilities for Christology and in particular for the way theology about the Spirit enables a reimagining of those items of Christian thought most likely at the roots of our modern rejection of God-as-other. Christ at the Crux offers a lively and ambitious analysis of how God's relation to the world has been conceived by a number of thinkers from across the Christian tradition. It is a book full of ideas, and both its historical and its constructive elements will provoke debate. --John Webster, St. Mary's College, The School of Divinity, The University of St. Andrews, Scotland There are many ways of cutting a path through the forest of theological history. Paul Cumin takes us by way of thinkers who worried about the relation of a Creator to his creatures and encountered its crux in Christology. It proves an illuminating journey. And Cumin is a splendid guide, incisive and theologically insightful. --Robert W. Jenson, The Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology, New Jersey In a series of lively, highly original, and deeply probing conversations with the theological tradition from Irenaeus to Colin Gunton, Paul Cumin explores the possibilities of a genuinely Christian theology of mediation. He shows critically and constructively what happens to theological reflection if we take the Trinitarian mediation of God seriously . . . . What appears as the critical crux of Christian faith becomes the cornerstone of theological reconstruction. --Christoph Schwobel, Systematic Theology and Philosophy of Religion, University of Tubingen, Germany Paul Cumin (PhD, King's College London) is the pastor at Pemberton Community Church (British Columbia, Canada) and Adjunct Professor of Theology at the Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary (Canada).
