9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

C. S. Lewis is widely recognized as one of the great apologists and writers of the 20th century. He is known for remarkable books such as Mere Christianity, Miracles, and The Problem of Pain. Lewis also wrote two fiction series that have enjoyed an enduring popularity: The Chronicles of Narnia and The Space Trilogy. In addition to all this, Lewis was a prescient observer of education and a thoughtful critic of modern educational theory and practice.In this brief audiobook, Lewis scholar Dr. Louis Markos surveys Lewis' thought on education as represented in books such as The Abolition of Man, An Experiment in Criticism, The Discarded Image, Collected Letters, and numerous other essays and publications. What emerges is a timely call to renew a radical liberal arts education that assumes a meaningful, purposeful cosmos and that will awaken students from the slumber of cold vulgarity and cultivate their affections for truth, goodness, and beauty. 1.

Wurzel-Flummery by A.A. Milne. Presented by the Online Stage. This is Milne's first play, a brief one-act piece first published in 1917. In the author's own words, his early plays were written in his spare time, during the years he spent soldiering in the First World War. Two British members of Parliament - one an elder conservative, the other a younger man with a liberal bent (and an eye on the older man's daughter) face a difficult choice. Some stranger has left each of them a considerable fortune on condition they give up their well-respected family names and adopt that of Wurzel-Flummery. Can they face down the mockery? What's in a name, anyway?  Cast: Robert Crawshaw, MP - Ben Stevens Margaret Crawshaw (his wife) - Linda Barrans Viola Crawshaw (his daughter) - Amanda Friday Richard Meriton, MP - Peter Tucker Denis Clifton - Alan Weyman Maid - Cate Barratt Stage directions read by Cate Barratt Audio edited by Cate Barratt 1.

The Moral Arc: How Science and Reason Lead Huma...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

We are living in the most moral period of our species’ history. Best-selling author Michael Shermer’s most accomplished and ambitious book to date demonstrates how the scientific way of thinking has made people, and society as a whole, more moral. Ever since the Age of Reason and the Enlightenment thinkers consciously applied the methods of science to solve social and moral problems. The experimental methods and analytical reasoning of science created the modern world of liberal democracies, civil rights and civil liberties, equal justice under the law, open political and economic borders, free minds and free markets, and prosperity the likes of which no human society in history has ever enjoyed. More people in more places have greater rights, freedoms, liberties, literacy, education, and prosperity - the likes of which no human society in history has ever enjoyed. In this provocative and compelling book - that includes brief histories of freedom rights, women’s rights, gay rights, and animal rights, along with considerations of the nature of evil and moral regress - Shermer explains how abstract reasoning, rationality, empiricism, skepticism - scientific ways of thinking - have profoundly changed the way we perceive morality and, indeed, move us ever closer to a more just world. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English.

Politics - According to the Bible: A Comprehens...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A variety of perspectives exist within the Christian community when it comes to political issues and political involvement. This comprehensive and listenable book presents a political philosophy from the perspective that the Gospel pertains to all of life - so Christians should be involved in political issues. In brief, this is an analysis of conservative and liberal plans to do good for the nation, evaluated in light of the Bible and common sense. In this ground-breaking book, recognized evangelical Bible professor Wayne Grudem rejects five mistaken views about Christian influence on politics: (1) 'compel religion', (2) 'exclude religion', (3) 'all government is demonic', (4) 'do evangel-ism, not politics', and (5) 'do politics, not evangelism'. He proposes a better alternative: (6) 'significant Christian influence on government'. Then he explains the Bible's teachings about the purpose of civil government and the characteristics of good or bad government. Does the Bible support some form of democracy? Should judges and the courts hold the ultimate power? With respect to specific political issues, Grudem argues that most people's views depend on deep-seated assumptions about several basic moral and even theological questions, such as whether God exists, whether absolute moral standards can be known, whether there is good and evil in each person's heart, whether people should be accountable for their good and bad choices, whether property should belong to individuals or to society, and whether the purpose of the earth's resources is to bring benefit to mankind. After addressing these foundational questions, Grudem provides a thoughtful, carefully reasoned analysis of over 50 specific issues dealing with the protection of life, marriage, the family and children, economic issues and taxation, the environment, national defense, relationships to other nations, freedom of speech and religion, quotas, and special interests. 1.

Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor
12,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

I call you "neighbor" because I don't know your name, or anything personal about you - and for that we share the blame. Given our circumstances, "neighbor" might be too casual a word to describe our relationship. We are intruders into each other's dream, violators of each other's sense of home, incarnations of each other's worst historical nightmares. Neighbors? So begins Yossi Klein Halevi's Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor, a powerful attempt to reach beyond the Wall and into the hearts of "the enemy." In these ten, brief letters, Halevi endeavors to explain his position as a liberal, American-born Jew who immigrated to Israel in his 20s, intoxicated by a vision of a homeland and now, desperate to see it succeed as a morally responsible, democratic state in the Middle East. Deeply informative, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor is an education in a dream and the inevitable conflict that has been born of it. As Halevi probes Zionism and the battle of competing narratives that has raged between Israelis and Palestinians in the last 70 years, he attempts to untangle the knot of human emotions that has encircled the conflict. In words that often read like poetry, Halevi interrogates the complex mess of faith, anger, warmth, pride, and shame he feels as a Jew living in Israel, using history and personal experience as his guide. These illuminating and poignant letters are addressed to Halevi's Palestinian neighbor, and yet they are also sure to speak to a wide, American Jewish audience, perhaps, particularly, the many secular, American Jews who prefer to disassociate themselves from Israel and the conflict. This is a problem that causes many American Jews to avert their eyes. Letters from My Palestinian Neighbor forces the reader to look. Sure to stir a great deal of debate, on all sides, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor is a perfect book for our complicated times.
