From one of America’s most brilliant writers, a New York Times bestselling journey through psychology, philosophy, and lots of meditation to show how Buddhism holds the key to moral clarity and enduring happiness.

At the heart of Buddhism is a simple claim: The reason we suffer—and the reason we make other people suffer—is that we don’t see the world clearly. At the heart of Buddhist meditative practice is a radical promise: We can learn to see the world, including ourselves, more clearly and so gain a deep and morally valid happiness.

In this “sublime” (The New Yorker), pathbreaking book, Robert Wright shows how taking this promise seriously can change your life—how it can loosen the grip of anxiety, regret, and hatred, and how it can deepen your appreciation of beauty and of other people. He also shows why this transformation works, drawing on the latest in neuroscience and psychology, and armed with an acute understanding of human evolution.

This book is the culmination of a personal journey that began with Wright’s landmark book on evolutionary psychology, The Moral Animal, and deepened as he immersed himself in meditative practice and conversed with some of the world’s most skilled meditators. The result is a story that is “provocative, informative and...deeply rewarding” (The New York Times Book Review), and as entertaining as it is illuminating. Written with the wit, clarity, and grace for which Wright is famous, Why Buddhism Is True lays the foundation for a spiritual life in a secular age and shows how, in a time of technological distraction and social division, we can save ourselves from ourselves, both as individuals and as a species.
The dots of prophecy are the various beliefs, ideas, theories, views, schools of thought, etc. ascribed to what the imagery of Revelation 12, 13 and 17 including Daniel 7 mean among Christians today. Many become weary with the variety of seemingly confusing and disjointed views and are turned off and away from a serious investigation of apocalyptic symbolism the study of which is critical and necessary to understanding the everlasting gospel in its fullness. This book is a guide for individuals studying the imagery of Revelation and helps connect the dots between the dragon of chapter 12, the leopard-like beast of chapter 13, and the scarlet beast of chapter 17. The writer provides evidence that these three symbols are elements that help establish the profile of a killer, a modern day superpower as it developed in stages over time into the single most imposing religious system the world has ever known. A system one writer described as "a masterpiece of Satan's power--a monument of his efforts to seat himself upon the throne to rule the earth according to his will. Please be warned. This book is not for everyone. It is written for Bereans those among the believers who it can be said, like the saints of Berea in Pauls day, These were nobler than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. (Act 17:11) This study is for individuals who have been in the habit of searching the Bible for themselves and weighing evidence. It is for anyone who comes to the investigation of God's word with a contrite heart, a teachable and prayerful spirit.
