The James M. H. Gregg Selected Works includes four books. Each book was written to inspire future generations to think and act in ways to improve themselves and society. Mr. Gregg's most recent work, Social Justice (A Blueprint), explores a new set of ideas and strategies for moving humans to a higher cultural plane on which all can live to their full potential. In Ideas of a Twentieth Century Grandfather the author reveals to his grandchildren his knowledge and insight that he may not otherwise get a chance to tell them. Zen Master is a dialogue between a Zen Master and students. The students ask him questions about many subjects to include the meaning of life and living, death, the essences of Zen, and peace of mind. Finally, Some Poems is a compilation of poems that the author has written over the years about loving, living, being, and love.
I am a husband, a parent, a grandparent, a friend, a neighbor and a citizen of my state and nation. In my work I have served my nation as a soldier and as an executive in the service of the US Federal Government. I am now retired from paid employment but spent many hours working to better understand nature and human behavior. I'm now writing a book on social justice in which I hope to bring together many of my ideas about human behavior, human society, and the art of human living. I greatly enjoy living my life and believe it is important to live with joyful intensity. I particularly enjoy intense physical expression, exploring nature and wilderness, gardening, love, family, music, travel, and contemplating the wonderful beauty and mystery of being. I also believe it is important to give back what I can to life and particularly to human life. I have tried to do this in my career, in the creation and continued support of my family, and now in the creation of ideas that may empower my fellow humans for justice and life.
An illuminating New Testament study depicts the power and beauty of language that speaks with the words of God and man. Words call man to battle or summon him to prayer. More and more, today man is analyzing his language and asking: What is the purpose of language? What do the words we speak mean? What is their religious significance? Dr. Wilder's extraordinary work attempts to answer these questions and, in particular, to study the qualities of the language that ushered in a new religion, the early Christian faith.
