Finding God in the Body: A Spiritual Path for the Modern West by Benjamin Riggs


Finding God in the Body, the new book by Benjamin Riggs is a unique and thought provoking vision of spiritual practice in the modern world. It explores the space between fundamentalism and atheism to uncover a spirituality that resonates with the Western mind and binds that view to a path of practice that introduces the reader to the God of the body.

Western religion is heavily invested in the economy of belief. On one side are those that believe their religion is the only true religion and on the other side are the nonbelievers that argue spirituality is nothing more than a relic of primitive man. Finding God in the Body moves beyond this fatuous debate to outline a spiritual path that resonates with Westerners without offending their modern sensibilities.
"This book is not only an effort to flesh out a functioning mythology for the modern West, but an attempt to infuse this mythology with a practice tradition so we may come to embody the mystery that lives within us.” ~ pg 107
Finding God in the Body has been heralded by authors and experts as a unique, necessary, and timely addition to the corpus of spiritual literature:

“This is a most remarkable, unusual, profound book that is certain to transform the spiritual lives of all who read it.” ~ Dr. Reginald Ray, author of Touching Enlightenment: Finding Realization in the Body and spiritual director of the Dharma Ocean Foundation
“In Finding God in the Body, Ben Riggs delivers a heartfelt and deeply experiential message of engaged faith.” ~ Rev. Roger Wolsey, author of Kissing Fish: Christianity for People Who Don’t Like Christianity 
The book was released in Jan and is available for sale on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0692760229

Hurricane in Paradise by Deborah Brown (Paradise Series #10) plus $25 Amazon / Paypal Giveaway

Set against the steamy backdrop of Tarpon Cove's sun-kissed, tropical waters, sexy sleuths and best friends Madison and Fab are at it again dealing with the occasional dead body. Hidden just below the surface of the small town lies an underworld, one steeped in deceit, corruption, and deadly secrets. It's only a matter of time before Madison and Fab find themselves on a collision course with the police, who consider them likely suspects in a murder.

Ride along on their adventures when the duo realizes that a family member is missing and pull themselves away from all jobs to track him down. Theories: walked away, freak accident, kidnapped? If so, then why no ransom demand?

Hurricane in Paradise is book ten in the thrilling and humorous provocative Paradise series, which finds the two waist-deep in mystery and romance. It is a smart, adventurous read that delivers heart-thumping, non-stop action. Join Madison and Fab as they solve the most twisted of cases, through unconventional ¬– and highly entertaining – measures… sometimes in flip-flops.

The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, “great as stand-alone reads, but they're like chips...you won't be able to devour just one!”


Available to buy from.....

"Deborah Brown's Florida Keys mystery series is highly addictive! The characters are quirky & amusing. The dialogue is snappy. The plot highly entertaining & thrilling. All the oddball cast of characters are back as well as Mad's & Fab's deliciously hunky loves, Creole & Didier." 


"Madison and Fab are so much fun to read about along with their better halves. This time there's murder (of course), a missing family member and a crazy grandma! You'll love this book so much!"

"Once again Deborah Brown has written a wonderful humerous highly entertaining book."

About the Author
I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer... and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.
