Lodging for the Rose
| * Episode 1 - Discovering Love
Here begins an epic story that spans eight novels. The subject is freedom powered by universal love, the largely unexplored 'country.' Few people have dared to cross its borders and travel its landscape.
| * Episode 2A - The
Ice Age Challenge
"The Ice Age Challenge" refers to the challenge that we face to create a new foundation for living when the coming Ice Age climate shuts down most of the world’s agriculture. The resumption of the Ice Age could happen possibly 100 to 150 years from now. It may take that long to build the vast facilities that will be needed to feed the world from indoor agriculture. But is our love big enough that we can achieve the physically near impossible in order to assure a future for mankind beyond the space of our time? What limits would we put on the dimension of universal love? It appears we are in a triple race to meet all of these challenges. The big question is, do we have the skills to stay the course?
| * Episode 2B - Roses at Dawn
in an Ice Age World
With the Ice Age resuming 100 to 150 years from now we are challenged to embrace the still rejected renaissance principle, the Principle of Universal Love, without which mankind may not survive. But will we able to upgrade our human dimension sufficiently to accept the Principle of Universal Love and to reflect it in our daily living? God is Love, universal divine Principle. Do we dare to love universally in the social domain? Or do we pretend that the divine Principle of Universal Love, the historic renaissance principle, doesn't apply there, especially when it comes to our personal loved ones and friends?

| * Episode 8 – Lu Mountain

Other novels by Rolf A. F. Witzsche
| Flight Without Limits
The novel is a science fiction work with a touch of reality. It is about a space voyage to Alpha Centauri, the nearest solar system to our own.

tragic domain of our nuclear armed world, and the second the domain of
spiritual freedom where old axioms become discredited and fall away while
love unfolds its universal face. Will the latter prevail?

Divine Science - Spiritual Pedagogicals
Unknown to the world, Mary Baker Eddy created a scientific monument in the form of a vast pedagogical structure for the advance of universal Divine Science, which her major works, including Christian Science and its textbook are but parts of.
