My life is filled with interesting stories from first grade all the way to present-day 2017like how I lived with twenty-twenty vision until I was seventeen and that age I was diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration also known as Stargardt. I write about the person I was with vision, and I write stories about how I was after my visual disability. This also includes the struggles I endured and how I overcame them. The stories I wrote are important to who I have become now. I had to become a bad person to become a good person. The rainbow high section of the book changed my perspective for the LGBT community. Seeing blindly has different meanings to me. What does it mean to you?

Light in Darkness re-centers theology in God as the focus of the enormous efforts of research in current scholarship. It addresses the way the topic of God is treated—or not treated—in both cultural and religious circles, and even its comparative absence in church communications.

"From Darkness to Light explores from a variety of angles the subject of museum lighting in exhibition spaces in America, Japan, and Western Europe throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Written by an array of international experts, these collected essays gather perspectives from a diverse range of cultural sensibilities. From sensitive discussions of Tintoretto's unique approach to the play of light and darkness as exhibited in the Scuola Grande di San Rocco in Venice, to the development of museum lighting as part of Japanese artistic self-fashioning, via the story of an epic American painting on tour, museum illumination in the work of Henry James, and lighting alterations at Chatsworth (to name only a few topics) this book is a treasure trove of illuminating contributions. The collection is at once a refreshing insight for the enthusiastic museum-goer, who is brought to an awareness of the exhibit in its immediate environment, and a wide-ranging scholarly compendium for the professional who seeks to proceed in their academic or curatorial work with a more enlightened sense of the lighted space."--Publisher's website.

According to the Upanishads, the body is a temple and the one residing in it is the Lord Himself. Humans have endeavored to replicate this message through the construction of temples. The heart is the cave where the soul dwells and the cave is the temple’s sanctum sanctum where the deity resides—in darkness and stillness. In all faiths, light is the archetype of transcendence. In the temple, it is only with the light of the lamp, purposefully raised, that the magnificent presence of God is revealed. In us, God is discovered with the light of knowledge: when it floods the cave, it banishes the darkness, illuminating and making the unknown gloriously known. What is this light? What does it disclose? How is it attained? With gratitude and humility, ‘Darkness to Light’ provides answers and makes suggestions. This book is a humble offering of gratitude at the feet of the great master Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda, founder of Chinmaya Mission, who has ignited the spark in the hearts of seekers worldwide.

The most important work of the towering intellectual of the Middle Ages, Thomas Aquinas’s Summa Theologiae remains one of the great seminal works of philosophy and theology, while extending to subjects as diverse as law and government, sacraments and liturgy, and psychology and ethics. In his third and final part of the Summa Theologiae, Thomas Aquinas begins to address the life of Christ, lived out both in Jesus himself, and in each of the baptized through the sacraments.

The conviction that Jesus is the restorative Christ demands a commitment to the justice he articulated. The justice of the restorative Christ is justice with reconciliation, justice with repentance, justice with repair, and justice without retaliation. The Gospel of Luke and the book of Acts portray the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ through the radical concept of enemy-love. In conversation with Dietrich Bonhoeffer (Jesus-for-others), John Howard Yoder (a nonviolent Jesus), Miroslav Volf (an embracing Jesus), and Chris Marshall (a compassionate Jesus), Broughton demonstrates what the restorative Christ means for us today. Following the restorative Christ faithfully involves imaginative disciplines (seeing, remembering, and desiring), conversational disciplines (naming, questioning, and forgiving), and embodied disciplines (absorbing, repairing, and embracing).
