Gasping in the Canyon

Robert Arias

"Gasping in the Canyon" is the natural, delightful followup to Rob Arias' "Thirsting in the Vortex," which appeared in the April-June 2004 issue of C*NAQ. The author's "foolish" descent into the Grand Canyon and ascent back to the rim provides the backdrop for exploring the significance of suffering to the process of spiritual growth.

The Letters Library

    Readers comment on Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ"; Hinduism, the Bhagavad Gita, and Ramana Maharshi; and, of course, topics covered in our last C*NAQ issue.

A Peek Between the Covers

Dan Hahn

Why God Won't Go Away, by Andrew Newberg, MD, the late Eugene G. D'Aquili, MD, PhD and Vince Rause, is the subject of the Reverend Daniel B. Hahn's "Peek Between the Covers." An outgrowth of the research of scientists Newberg and D'Aquili in the field of neurotheology, the title probes the findings of modern brain science as it examines mystical experience. Advances in technology now allow researchers to apply imaging techniques toward the study of the meditating brain with provocative — even stunning — implications!

The Wicked Donkey's Prayer

Blair Ewing

Poetry? In Christian*New Age Quarterly? C*NAQ was more than surprised to find itself accepting a piece of poetry for our July-September 2004 issue! Yet Blair Ewing's "The Wicked Donkey's Prayer" is an exceptional work and C*NAQ is privileged to be publishing it.

Through the Editor's Eyes


Catherine Groves

Catherine Groves discusses the challenges of and frustrations in achieving the timely release of Christian*New Age Quarterly issues. As Groves confides, "when any one aspect tips out of balance, a cascading effect ripples through all." Might C*NAQ readers have fresh, practical solutions for continuing our commitment to publishing C*NAQ on schedule?
