Montsegur in March AD 1244 was the scene of great courage in the face of over-whelming French Forces of 10,000 men in arms. Two hundred Christians were held up in a fortress high on the top of a mountain, defended by 150 knights and footmen. During the nine months of siege, Knight Del Congost and Lady Marie Magdalana live and loved. In the end, all 200 Christians were burned to death in a fagot stockade but that was not the end of the story. Modern consequences continue to be felt.

We know it as the Golden Rule. Jesus called it the Greatest Commandment: 'You shall love your neighbour as yourself ... do unto others as you would have them do unto you.' In her latest book, Joyce Meyer proposes that Christians do something revolutionary: actually practice love. The book is a hands-on guide to bringing to life the basic message that Christ brought. In it, Joyce examines what will happen if we each decide that we will refuse to live only for ourselves and instead take on the challenges and problems of others. Joyce takes a global view of the Love Revolution, addressing such issues as *human trafficking *domestic violence *rape *hunger *child prostitution as well as providing concrete actions you can take to participate the solutions to these world-wide crises. She also gets personal, discussing Biblical and psychological premises to help us practice what we preach on a daily basis.

It was once said of Ben Franklin that in the final decade of his life he had reached the age Òwhen life slopes to an end.Ó So here I am in my 8th decade, sliding down that slippery slope! It has been a great ride! During my life as an author of 8 books, I have written about other people and what they believed. A Christian Century reviewer of my Contemporary American Theologies. A Critical Survey gave his assessment: ÒFerm's greatest asset is his uncanny ability to synthesize these diverse theologies into a larger conceptual wholeÉA landmark of clarity.Ó This is what I have tried my best to do! Here, however, as I slide down the slippery slope, I express my own views which never seem to settle down, but keep changing with the challenge of new experiences. My lifetime mentor has been America's greatest philosopher William James whose writings have taught me to be aware of Òthe varieties of religious experienceÓ and Òthe right to believeÓ about the things that matter the most. In this book I confront such important issues as the meaning of religion, faith and doubt, the elusive inner self, God, Jesus, the bible, the church, the life to come Ð and I end with a challenge to senior citizens to get on with their unfinished doubts and lives. My deepest conviction is that the more I know, the less I know Ð that life continues to be a bewildering Mystery. I will continue investigating the central claims of religion while discarding the old myths with new realities. Let us make these claims our religious act! The greatest risk is not taking one! Let us always have the courage of our confusions! Deane William Ferm
