Through the Editorial Assistant's Eyes

Accepting the Dance

Judith Eir Landaiche

Faced with the demands of C*NAQ's tyrannical Editor Groves, Judith Eir Landaiche, our Editorial Assistant, had little choice but to create a beautiful piece for this issue! Landaiche muses on the offerings of Father John W. Groff, Jr. and Robert M. Price, then ventures on to her own dance as she explores our responses to the events that swirl into our lives.

The Choice

Father John W. Groff, Jr.

Many readers of Christian*New Age Quarterly cherish the works of Father John W. Groff, Jr., who has taken a long hiatus from writing. So we are especially honored to publish a new piece from him: "The Choice." It seems our Father Groff met up with a peculiarly decisive dove. And so a choice — but whose? — was made.

A Pensive Pause

Give your Presence as Presents

Joanne Winetzki

In contrast to the crass consumerism of today, Joanne Winetzki offers a different vantage in "Give your Presence as Presents." Contemplating the importance of our presence in sharing our love with others, Winetzki draws upon her personal experiences, as well as quotes several sources that express thoughts about the meaningfulness of being there for others.

Synchronicity, the Monadology, and the Law of Attraction

Robert M. Price

The Law of Attraction is an essential element underlying a wide range of spiritual ideologies, from New Age to New Thought and beyond. In this fascinating study, Robert M. Price critiques what he calls the rampant "vibrational frequencies" pseudo-science purporting to explain the phenomenon, and then probes how the Law of Attraction really does work. This pivotal essay draws on Carl Jung's synchronicity and Gottfried Leibniz's monadology, as well as the works of other eminent scholars.

A Peek Between the Covers

Joanne Winetzki

Joanne Winetzki examines Unfinished Evolution: How a New Age Revival Can Change Your Life and Save the World, by Teena Booth. Initially, Winetzki mistook this book to be just another how-to on manifesting the things one wants. Instead, she discovered a powerful discussion of an inclusive, broad-based direction for global awareness and activism.
