Snow Cow reviews

Posted by universalis on 3 February 2010

Some people have worried about Universalis Publishing Limited publishing something as worldly-sounding as ghost stories. It may be reassuring for them to know the Universalis users who have actually bought and read the book have liked it and been moved by it. The book’s reviews page has some of the reviews that have appeared, and here is a sample of one of them:

“These stories raise deeper philosophical, epistemological, and in many cases, theological questions. So there are mysteries within mysteries here, and I am thus still thinking about many of these stories (just because they are great stories) and still reflecting on the deeper mysteries they raise (because they are such haunting questions in humanity’s bigger search for answers). Highly recommended!

Announcing “The Snow Cow”

Posted by universalis on 21 September 2009

cowaloneWe are proud to announce the publication of our first printed book, “The Snow Cow” by Martin Kochanski, on 19 November.

Subtitled “Ghost stories for skiers”, it might not sound to you like the sort of religious or spiritual book that you’d have expected from Universalis. Certainly there isn’t much theology; and yet the stories (which don’t all contain ghosts) have an enormous amount of love and joy in them. After all, this, for a Christian, is what life and death are all about.

And quite apart from anything else, the stories are easy to read and very entertaining!

Visit the Snow Cow web site to read more about the book. There’s even a sample chapter for you to download.
