Infidels and Unreasonable Gods

Infidels and Unreasonable Gods

Throughout the book, God and faith – and what history’s greatest thinkers have said on those topics – are major themes.

To understand the world, you must have a basic understanding of Western philosophers and the philosophers who have shaped the world. This concise, jargon-free, plain-language layman’s guide examines the writings of the major modern philosophers, including Socrates, Diogenes, Plato, Nietzsche, Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, and others. These philosophers seek to answer questions such as: • Can science explain the world? • Is a wise person necessarily rational? • Should one aspire to authenticity? • Is God unbelievable? Throughout the book, God and faith – and what history’s greatest thinkers have said on those topics – are major themes. For instance, Schopenhauer preferred Oriental mysticism to Enlightenment rationalism and scheduled his university lectures to clash with Hegel, whose grand vision of reasonable progress he hated. The author also examines what modern philosophers said about how we can live heroically, conflicts between Protestantism and Catholicism, and reconciling faith and reason. Find out why the gods will always exist and what their mere existence says about humanity by following what history’s greatest philosophers have argued.

Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers

Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers

Look to it lest you end like the fish, by hook, by weel, or by net.106 ... even the unreasonable animals can illustrate the virtues and vices of humanity.

Many Christians today long to become reacquainted with their ancient ancestors in the faith. They see a deeper worship and devotion in the prayers and hymns of the early church. And they believe that the writings of the early church can shed new light on their understanding of Scripture. But where and how do we begin? Our first encounter with the writings of the church fathers may seem like visiting a far country where the language, assumptions, concerns and conclusions are completely unfamiliar to us. In Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers Christopher Hall helps us through this cultural confusion, introducing us to the early church, its unique world, and the sights and sounds of Scripture that are highlighted for them. As Hall points out, the ancient fathers hear music in Scripture where we remain tone-deaf. Despite their occasional eccentricities, theirs is a hearing refined through long listening in song, worship, teaching, meditation and oral reading. And like true masters they challenge and correct our modern assumptions as they invite us to tune our ears to hear the divine melodies of the Bible. Reading Scriptue with the Church Fathers is an exceptional guide. Hall provides a warm, winsome, informative and indispensable introcution to who these leaders and scholars were, how they read and interpreted Scripture, and how we might read Scripture with them for all its worth.

Fishing Holidays

Fishing Holidays

When Mrs. Battle spoke of the virtues of a square game “she meant whist”; and so fishing, in my inner consciousness, always means fishing with a fly.

“Fishing Holidays” is an assorted collection of anecdotes and accounts of the author's various fishing holidays in Ireland. This informal yet informative volume offers the reader an insight into real-life fishing, providing accounts of actual excursions, mishaps, successes, and utter failures in the hope that the reader may learn from the author's mistakes and emulate his successes. An easy and entertaining read, “Fishing Holidays” will appeal to anglers new and old, and it would make for a worthy addition to collections of angling literature. Contents include: “Amabilis Insania”, “By Irish Waters”. “St. Bridgid's Flood”, “My Friend the Salmon Poacher”, “The Reedy Lake”, “The Raid to Cushinass”, “A Day with White Trout”, “The Young Fisher”, “Tide Fishing”, “The Low Country”, “The Kaabah of Anglers”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of fishing.

Studying the Jew investigates those German scholars who forged an interdisciplinary field to create a comprehensive portrait of the Jew, fabricating an empirical basis for Nazi antisemitic policies. In a chilling story of academics who perverted their talents and distorted their research in support of persecution and genocide, Studying the Jew explores the intersection of ideology and scholarship, the state and the university, the intellectual and his motivations, to provide a new appreciation of the use and abuse of learning and the horrors perpetrated in the name of reason.

The Elizabethan Underworld collects together sixteen of the more important tracts from the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries dealing with the lives and misdoings of thieves, rogues, and tricksters. For the most part the original authors were men of experience - watchmen, constables and those who drifted into the London underworld and learnt its tricks. A thorough introduction contributes a full historical background and outlines contemporary social contexts.
