Doors in the Walls of the World

Doors in the Walls of the World

"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." — Hamlet

After William Shakespeare's Horatio sees the ghost of Hamlet's father, and scarcely believes his own eyes, Hamlet tells him that there is more to reality than he can know or imagine, including ghosts.

Hamlet's statement suggests that the walls of the material world, which we perceive with our senses and analyze with our intellects, have doors that open into the More beyond them. Philosopher Peter Kreeft explains in this book that the More includes "The Absolute Good, Platonic Forms, God, gods, angels, spirits, ghosts, souls, Brahman, Rta (the Hindu ontological basis for cosmological karma), Nirvana, Tao, 'the will of Heaven', The Meaning of It All, Something that deserves a capital letter."

With razor-sharp reasoning and irrepressible joy, Kreeft helps us to find the doors in the walls of the world. Drawing on history, physical science, psychology, religion, philosophy, literature, and art, he invites us to welcome what lies on the other side so that we can begin living the life of Heaven in the here and now.


About the Author

Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., a Professor of Philosophy at Boston College, is the well-known author of over thirty-five books on a wide range of spiritual themes, including Prayer for Beginners, Back to Virtue, and Angels and Demons.

Praise for Doors in the Walls of the World

"Tragically, one result of the dominant interpretation of reality today is that the world becomes extraordinarily boring. There's no ultimate point to anything. But the Christian vision is entirely different! It tells us that history is in fact His-story, and His story is one that is dramatic, scary, and beautiful beyond imagination. With his characteristic wit and intellect, Peter Kreeft opens our minds and hearts to this exciting and life-changing drama, in which you and I play leading roles."
Fr. John Riccardo, Author, Heaven Starts Now

"Kreeft fits his reader with the lens of story to see clearly the deeper meanings of life, death, love, sex, poetry, human longing—for starters. This microscopic look at the big picture proves that Plato's Cave not only has an opening, but a system of vents, shafts, and tunnels leading to the light of the Real. Want a wise guide, a Monty Python sketch writer, and clarity-obsessed teacher who distills practical wisdom from wildly eclectic sources? Buy this book, already."Patrick Coffin, Host, The Patrick Coffin Show

"Kreeft is ready always to give reasons for the wonder that is in him. The proper philosophy, the door-flinging-open philosophy, does not reduce my thoughts about God to atoms, but splits the atom and sees in it the fire of God's power and love. Or, to put it in the words of the Psalmist, 'I rejoiced when I heard them say, Let us go up to the house of the Lord.'"Anthony Esolen, Ph.D., Professor of English, Thomas More College

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Heaven - Book

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Heaven - Book

Peter Kreeft provides a look at the nature of Heaven that offers all readers a refreshingly clear, theologically sound, and always fascinating glimpse of that "undiscovered country." Kreeft's engaging and informative account thoughtfully answers such intriguing questions as:

- How can we know what Heaven is like?
- Will we all be equal in Heaven?
- What will we do in Heaven?
- Will we know everything in Heaven?
- Can we know the joy of Heaven now?

Kreeft combines solid scholarship with a lively ability to communicate his findings. He speaks to the heart and mind, blending contemporary thinking and classical views to give us an unexcelled look at one of the most popular, yet least understood, subjects in religion.

Winning the Culture War

Winning the Culture War

To win any war, there are three things that you must know: that you are at war, who your enemy is, and what weapons or strategies can defeat him. Acknowledging that our culture is clearly in crisis, Dr. Peter Kreeft shows us that the only weapon strong enough to defeat the demons of this age is saints. Above all, Dr. Kreeft assures us that victory is assured for those who hope in Christ, because good always triumphs over evil.

 

Dr. Kreeft's talk gave me information to discuss with my family and friends. I like the comment where he says that the Catholic Church stands between us and total collapse of our culture. Thomas - South Bend, IN
