From classic art to modern-day television programs, angels are represented in many ways and in many forms. Although angels have permeated Jewish tradition since biblical times, they remain a mystery to most people, often thought of as distinctly un-Jewish icons. In Ascending Jacob's Ladder: Jewish Views of Angels, Demons, and Evil Spirits, Rabbi Ronald H. Isaacs introduces readers to the fascinating Jewish world of angels, from earliest times to the modern period.

The Final Ascension of Jacob's Ladder Book III in Ascending Jacob's Ladder Series The Final Ascension of Jacob's Ladder is the last book of this series. It encompasses the last and final section of dream interpretations given. It brings out how vital and essential it is to pay attention to the symbols of our dreamscapes. Dreams and visions are several ways we receive answers to our questions that we place before the Savior in faith, knowing that as we ask and seek, he will show us the answer to the questions we have regarding the gospel of Jesus Christ and life's problems and solutions. Through these final dreams and visions, we can see that we are upwardly taught. By being initiated with simple symbols of dreams into a complex system that aids us in understanding the Lord's mind. You will find as you read these last and final parables containing the many metaphors and anecdotes that will cause your mind to ponder on the final climactic visionary ending. These parables are meant for us to understand the complexities buried deep within the tropes presented before us. Never doubt the wisdom and knowledge of the Lord, for He will allow you to grow in degrees. You should be aware that we, mortals, can only learn line upon line, precept upon precept, which means that when we read one sentence, the meaning immediately becomes clear to us. We are then given another sentence, and the cycle goes on. As we follow this process, that single paragraph becomes clearer to us. This process then allows us to understand paragraph after paragraph; we can then move upward and onward until we understand the entire book. During these times, we learn the same way as our Savior, which is grace upon grace. However, remember that for us mortals, learning a single grace can take an entire lifetime to discover. Never be discouraged by someone who learns faster. This does not mean that they have been given more talents than you, it means that each of our abilities are different; and each of those capabilities are intended to be discovered on our own. Enjoy each of the parables for the there is great truth within them. And remember that the last one is unforgettable in nature and wisdom. Everyone on earth has a full and attended purpose, pay heed to the spirit of prayer and fasting and you will discover yours.

There are ten important questions everyone should ask; and the answers to these questions, which lead to ultimate truth, are a matter of reason, not of faith.Well-known Catholic philosopher and writer Peter Kreeft tackles each of these questions in a logical step-by-step way, like climbing the rungs of a ladder. Because questions are best answered by dialogue, Kreeft answers these fundamental questions in an imaginary conversation between two very different people who meet at the beach. Kreeft's characters begin at the beginning, at the bottom of the ladder, which is the passion for truth. When it comes to the most important questions a person can ask, no mere interest in philosophical dabbling will do. The passion for truth does not stop there, however, but carries the reader from one page to the next in this thought-provoking adventure of the mind.Among the topics, or steps, that Kreeft's characters delve into include: Do you have the passion to know?Does truth exist?What is the meaning of life?What is love, and why is it so important for our lives?If there is a God, what proof is there for his existence?Has God revealed himself to us in a personal way?And many other important questions and topics to help climb the ladder to the truth about life

Both classical geometry and modern differential geometry have been active subjects of research throughout the 20th century and lie at the heart of many recent advances in mathematics and physics. The underlying motivating concept for the present book is that it offers readers the elements of a modern geometric culture by means of a whole series of visually appealing unsolved (or recently solved) problems that require the creation of concepts and tools of varying abstraction. Starting with such natural, classical objects as lines, planes, circles, spheres, polygons, polyhedra, curves, surfaces, convex sets, etc., crucial ideas and above all abstract concepts needed for attaining the results are elucidated. These are conceptual notions, each built "above" the preceding and permitting an increase in abstraction, represented metaphorically by Jacob's ladder with its rungs: the 'ladder' in the Old Testament, that angels ascended and descended... In all this, the aim of the book is to demonstrate to readers the unceasingly renewed spirit of geometry and that even so-called "elementary" geometry is very much alive and at the very heart of the work of numerous contemporary mathematicians. It is also shown that there are innumerable paths yet to be explored and concepts to be created. The book is visually rich and inviting, so that readers may open it at random places and find much pleasure throughout according their own intuitions and inclinations. Marcel Berger is t he author of numerous successful books on geometry, this book once again is addressed to all students and teachers of mathematics with an affinity for geometry.
