Обоснование непостижимого
Что такое вера? Только лишь то, что мы ощущаем душой, интуитивно, но не можем доказать? Или вера в высшую сущность может быть основана на знании? Классик философской мысли великий Иммануил Кант взялся за сложнейшую задачу: доказать путем логических рассуждений, что Бог существует. Без разумного созидательного начала природа не могла бы иметь столь совершенное устройство, уверен философ. Он не просто доказывает – он приглашает к размышлению читателя. И по прошествии более чем двухсот пятидесяти лет эта работа Канта не перестает вызывать интерес. В данном издании она публикуется полностью.

Inglid minu sõrmeotstel
Käesolev raamat on järg rahvusvahelisele menukile „Inglid minu juustes” ja kirjeldab autori edasist elu, laste kasvatamist, kohtumisi peaingel Miikaeli ja ingel Eelijaga, suure õnne ja suure kurvastuse aegu ning kaotatud ja leitud armastusi. Raamatus räägib Lorna Byrne võimalustest, kuidas oma kaitseingliga lähedasemaks saada. Ta vaatleb lahkunud lähedaste, nende taevaste hingede rolli meie elus, kellel on lubatud meid põgusalt külastada, ja räägib sellest, kuidas me peaksime nendega suhtlema. Eelkõige aga saame tema vahendusel teada, millistena inglid meid näevad, kuidas nad meid armastavad, mida nad saavad meie jaoks teha ja mida meilt soovivad. Sellest ajast alates, kui Lorna Byrne’i tavatu anne avalikuks sai, on ta kuulsus üha kasvanud. Katoliku kirik on avaldanud talle lõpuks tunnustust, kutsudes teda kirikutesse kõnelema. Ameerika mõjukas teoloog Matthew Fox on võrrelnud Byrne’i keskaja pühaku Bingeni Hildegardiga. Samuti on tunnustanud tema erilisi võimeid juhtivad islami usuteadlased.
