“Stolen Jesus does not shy away from the hurts inflicted by messed-up religion, yet this is the funniest Christian book I have read. Thank God for honest authors like Jami Amerine who are brave enough to write about life as it is.” Paul Ellis, author of Stuff Jesus Never Said and Letters from Jesus Candid, vulnerable, and raw, popular blogger Jami Amerine delivers a hilarious memoir of her search for an authentic relationship with Jesus in a sea of impersonators. Raised in the Mormon church, Jami Amerine was excommunicated for apostasy before she was even old enough to be baptized. This experience left her curious about all things religious and set her on a path that would introduce her to many apparitions of Jesus over the years. It wasn’t until Jami stole a portrait of Jesus from a local YMCA storage closet and gave Him a home on her mantel that she began to ponder why the bad stuff of religion tends to stick the hardest. In Stolen Jesus Jami sets out to strip all her preconceived notions of Jesus to discover His genuine character. In doing so she discovers the real Jesus when she stops trying to fit Him in a box and allows Him to be her all-in-all. Jami’s frank, tell-it-like-it-is writing style is full of the kinds of self-deprecating anecdotes that will have you laughing and crying all at the same time.
In this fascinating collection, Sacred Ground moves outward from the intimate to the broad, both in defining the connections that root us and in describing the losses that have come with our increasing mobility and disconnection. The stories and essays here reveal both the pleasures and the difficulties that come with our freedom. But Bonner's anthology also demonstrates that choices remain for us to maintain our focus on those connections of the heart that make and sustain a home in all its manifestations.

A vicious murderer is keeping people indoors at night in Cambridge, England, and one resident--an American student who is inexplicably drawn to a malevolent wooded area--is particularly at risk
W. Y. Evans-Wentz, great Buddhist scholar and translator of such now familiar works as the Tibetan Book of the Dead and the Tibetan Book of the Great Liberation, spent his final years in California. There, in the shadow of Cuchama, one of the Earth's holiest mountains, he began to explore the astonishing parallels between the spiritual teaching of America's native peoples and that of the deeply mystical Hindus and Tibetans. Cuchama and Sacred Mountains, a book completed shortly before his death in 1965, is the fruit of those explorations. To Cuchama, "Exalted High Place," came the young Cochimi and Yuma boys for initiation into the mystic rites for their people. In solitude they sought and received guidance and wisdom. In this same way, the peoples of ancient Greece, the Hebrews, the early Christians, and the Hindus had found access to inner truth on their own holy mountains: and in this same way must the modern person find the path to inner knowing. Surveying many of the most Sacred Mountains in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia, Evans-Wentz expresses the belief that the secret power of these high places has not passed away but only awaits the coming of a New Age. This new age, in accord with the oldest prophecies of our continent, will be a time of renaissance, the long-waited era of harmony and peace among all peoples. This renaissance shall be uniquely American, a renewal based on the values so long honored by the Americans before Columbus, and so ruthlessly trampled by the "civilized" Europeans who overran them. No other race of people has been as spiritual in their way of life than the original Americans, notes Evans-Wentz. Perhaps none other has known such martyrdom. Yet the secret greatness of the Indian religion still lives, ancient as the Earth itself, yet ageless in its power to renew.
