Venerated for millennia by three faiths, torn by irreconcilable conflict, conquered, rebuilt, and mourned for again and again, Jerusalem is a sacred city whose very sacredness has engendered terrible tragedy. In this fascinating volume, Karen Armstrong, author of the highly praised A History of God, traces the history of how Jews, Christians, and Muslims have all laid claim to Jerusalem as their holy place, and how three radically different concepts of holiness have shaped and scarred the city for thousands of years. Armstrong unfolds a complex story of spiritual upheaval and political transformation--from King David's capital to an administrative outpost of the Roman Empire, from the cosmopolitan city sanctified by Christ to the spiritual center conquered and glorified by Muslims, from the gleaming prize of European Crusaders to the bullet-ridden symbol of the present-day Arab-Israeli conflict. Written with grace and clarity, the product of years of meticulous research, Jerusalem combines the pageant of history with the profundity of searching spiritual analysis. Like Karen Armstrong's A History of God, Jerusalem is a book for the ages. BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Karen Armstrong's Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life.

New York Times Bestseller Fierce in its imagining and stupefying in its scope, Jerusalem is the tale of everything, told from a vanished gutter. In the epic novel Jerusalem, Alan Moore channels both the ecstatic visions of William Blake and the theoretical physics of Albert Einstein through the hardscrabble streets and alleys of his hometown of Northampton, UK. In the half a square mile of decay and demolition that was England’s Saxon capital, eternity is loitering between the firetrap housing projects. Embedded in the grubby amber of the district’s narrative among its saints, kings, prostitutes, and derelicts, a different kind of human time is happening, a soiled simultaneity that does not differentiate between the petrol-colored puddles and the fractured dreams of those who navigate them. Employing, a kaleidoscope of literary forms and styles that ranges from brutal social realism to extravagant children’s fantasy, from the modern stage drama to the extremes of science fiction, Jerusalem’s dizzyingly rich cast of characters includes the living, the dead, the celestial, and the infernal in an intricately woven tapestry that presents a vision of an absolute and timeless human reality in all of its exquisite, comical, and heartbreaking splendor. In these pages lurk demons from the second-century Book of Tobit and angels with golden blood who reduce fate to a snooker tournament. Vagrants, prostitutes, and ghosts rub shoulders with Oliver Cromwell, Samuel Beckett, James Joyce’s tragic daughter Lucia, and Buffalo Bill, among many others. There is a conversation in the thunderstruck dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral, childbirth on the cobblestones of Lambeth Walk, an estranged couple sitting all night on the cold steps of a Gothic church front, and an infant choking on a cough drop for eleven chapters. An art exhibition is in preparation, and above the world a naked old man and a beautiful dead baby race along the Attics of the Breath toward the heat death of the universe. An opulent mythology for those without a pot to piss in, through the labyrinthine streets and pages of Jerusalem tread ghosts that sing of wealth, poverty, and our threadbare millennium. They discuss English as a visionary language from John Bunyan to James Joyce, hold forth on the illusion of mortality post-Einstein, and insist upon the meanest slum as Blake’s eternal holy city.

“Stewart O’Nan’s City of Secrets will keep you up all night reading – what a beautifully crafted novel.” – Alan Furst, New York Times bestselling author of Mission to Paris From master storyteller Stewart O'Nan, a timely moral thriller of the Jewish underground resistance in Jerusalem after the Second World War In 1945, with no homes to return to, Jewish refugees by the tens of thousands set out for Palestine. Those who made it were hunted as illegals by the British mandatory authorities there and relied on the underground to shelter them; taking fake names, they blended with the population, joining the wildly different factions fighting for the independence of Israel. City of Secrets follows one survivor, Brand, as he tries to regain himself after losing everyone he's ever loved. Now driving a taxi provided—like his new identity—by the underground, he navigates the twisting streets of Jerusalem as well as the overlapping, sometimes deadly loyalties of the resistance. Alone, haunted by memories, he tries to become again the man he was before the war—honest, strong, capable of moral choice. He falls in love with Eva, a fellow survivor and member of his cell, reclaims his faith, and commits himself to the revolution, accepting secret missions that grow more and more dangerous even as he begins to suspect he's being used by their cell's dashing leader, Asher. By the time Brand understands the truth, it's too late, and the tragedy that ensues changes history. A noirish, deeply felt novel of intrigue and identity written in O'Nan's trademark lucent style, City of Secrets asks how both despair and faith can lead us astray, and what happens when, with the noblest intentions, we join movements beyond our control.

The controversial journalistic analysis of the mentality that fostered the Holocaust, from the author of The Origins of Totalitarianism Sparking a flurry of heated debate, Hannah Arendt’s authoritative and stunning report on the trial of German Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann first appeared as a series of articles in The New Yorker in 1963. This revised edition includes material that came to light after the trial, as well as Arendt’s postscript directly addressing the controversy that arose over her account. A major journalistic triumph by an intellectual of singular influence, Eichmann in Jerusalem is as shocking as it is informative—an unflinching look at one of the most unsettling (and unsettled) issues of the twentieth century.

Sebagai seorang Kristen fundamentalis, dulu aku mendukung Israel. Pengalamanku di Sabra-Shatila menyadarkanku bahwa orang Palestina adalah manusia. Kebodohan dan prasangka telah membutakan mataku dari penderitaan bangsa Palestina. Buku ini adalah kesaksianku. Mulanya, karena latar belakang religinya, dr. Ang Swee Chai adalah pendukung Israel. Di matanya, orang Palestina adalah teroris. Namun, pada 1982, Israel menyerang Beirut dengan brutal. Keyakinannya pun mulai goyah. Ia putuskan untuk membuktikan sendiri dengan menjadi sukarelawan medis di Beirut. Di sana, di kamp pengungsian Palestina, setelah menjadi saksi Pembantaian Sabra-Shatila, akhirnya ia temukan jawaban. Ia berbalik memihak rakyat Palestina, memihak keadilan dan kemanusiaan. Di tanah asing, ia pertaruhkan nyawanya untuk membela orang-orang yang tak punya hubungan darah maupun etnis dengan dirinya, untuk melaksanakan kewajibannya sebagai dokter, sebagai manusia. ?Saya menangis ketika membaca buku ini untuk pertama kalinya. Ilmu kedokteran dan keterampilan sastra menjadikan kesaksian ini begitu mengiris.? ?Farid Gaban, Pena Indonesia ?Buku yang membuat orang AS marah karena kesaksiannya yang berani. Tidak lama kemudian, penerbitan buku ini dihentikan peredarannya di AS.? ?Media Indonesia ?Pembaca akan merasakan kepedihan dan pergolakan yang dialamai dr. Ang Swee. Membaca buku ini berarti merasakan dari dekat pembantaian manusia.? ?Koran Tempo ?Buku yang ditulis secara detail dan menerobos relung jiwa.? ?Gatra ?Catatan yang amat personal tentang kehidupan di kamp pengungsian.? ?The Times ?Penggambaran dr. Ang dalam buku ini membuat peristiwa-peristiwa tersebut terasa seoalah-olah baru terjadi kemarin.? ?The Independent ?Sebuah kesaksian tentang pembantaian manusia yang menukik hingga inti permasalahannya.? ?The Guardian Dr. Ang Swee Chai lahir di Malaysia dan dibesarkan di Singapura. Sejak 1977, bersama suaminya tinggal di Inggris. Kini, ia bekerja di St. Bartholomew?s Hospital dan the Royal London Hospital sebagai orthopaedic consultant. Setelah terjadinya Pembantaian Sabra-Shatila, bersama beberapa rekannya, dr. Ang membentuk Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP). Pada 1987, Pemimpin PLO, Yasser Arafat, menganugerahi dr. Ang Star of Palestine, penghargaan tertinggi bagi pengabdian kepada rakyat Palestina. Hingga kini, melalui MAP dr. Ang terus aktif membantu bangsa Palestina. [Mizan, Qanita, Novel, Memoar, Indonesia]

Elijah in Jerusalem, the long awaited sequel to the acclaimed best-selling novel, Father Elijah: An Apocalypse , is the continuing story of the priest, Fr. Elijah. A convert from Judaism, and a survivor of the Holocaust, he has for decades been a Carmelite monk on the mountain of the prophet Elijah. In the events of the preceding novel, Father Elijah, the central character confronted the President of the European Union, a man rising toward global control as President of the soon to be realized World Government. The Pope recognized in the President certain qualities that are anti-Christ, and asked Fr. Elijah to call the man to repentance, though his attempts at this prove to be unsuccessful. In this sequel, now-Bishop Elijah, accompanied by his fellow monk Brother Enoch, enter Jerusalem just as the President arrives in the city to inaugurate a new stage of his rise to power. They hope to unmask him as the Antichrist prophesied by Scripture and to warn the world of the imminent spiritual danger to mankind. As the story unfolds, people of many kinds meet the undercover priest, and in the process their souls are revealed and tested, bringing about change for the good or for evil. Elijah perseveres in his mission even when all seems lost. The dramatic climax is surprising, yet it underlines that God works all things to the good for those who love Him, testifying to the truth that in the end Wisdom will be justified and Satan confounded.
