    • Philosophy Made Slightly Less Difficult

      $29.99

      Philosophy is for everyone. We think philosophically whenever we ask life’s big questions:
      *What is real?
      *How do we know what we know?
      *What is the right thing to do?
      *What does it mean to be human?
      *How should we view science and its claims?
      *Why should we believe that God exists?

      Philosophy is thinking critically about questions that matter. But many people find philosophy intimidating, so they never discover how invaluable it can be in engaging ideas, culture, and even their faith. Garrett DeWeese and J. P. Moreland understand these challenges, and in this book they apply their decades of teaching experience to help to make philosophy a little less difficult. Using straightforward language with plenty of everyday examples, they explain the basics needed to understand philosophical concepts–including logic, metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, philosophical anthropology, and philosophy of science.

      This second edition includes new chapters on aesthetics and philosophy of religion, as well as updated content on some current issues in philosophy. Ultimately, DeWeese and Moreland argue, developing a philosophically informed worldview is absolutely critical for Christians and for the future of the church. Students, pastors, campus workers, and ordinary Christians will all benefit from this user-friendly guide.

    • Rousseau And Revolution (Unabridged)

      $74.95

      The Pulitzer Prize-winning volume on European civilization by acclaimed historians Will and Ariel Durant

      Rousseau and Revolution, the tenth volume of the Story of Civilization, ranges over a Europe in ferment, but centers on the passionate rebel-philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the great exponent of the romantic impulse toward self-exploration and social revolt, who contended with the great rationalist Voltaire for the mind of Europe. Rousseau condemned civilization as a disease, glorified the noble savage, proclaimed to the world with equal intensity his own love affairs and the natural rights of man, and became the patron saint of the revolution and the worldwide social upheavals of two centuries.

    • True Friendship : Where Virtue Becomes Happiness

      $49.95

      Have you ever felt lonely, even when surrounded by people? Do you feel like you’re missing something important in your friendships?

      You probably are.

      Men and women are made, created, for friendship – but not just with passing or casual acquaintances. We are designed for real, deep, lasting friendship of the highest kind. Without that friendship, we often feel unsatisfied, empty, or simply alone.

      Not All Friendships Are Equal

      Did you know that there are different kinds of friendship? Dr. John Cuddeback, your professor for this course, describes the basic kinds of friendship, but he also shows you what friendship in the fullest sense really is – and it’s far more than simply being pals or BFF’s. Professor Cuddeback shows that Aristotle’s division of friendships into three kinds – utility, pleasure or virtue – has a pressing relevance for our lives today.

      True Friends and Personal Virtue

      Courage, fortitude, wisdom, charity… what can these virtues have to do with friendship? Being virtuous, says Aristotle, is how man becomes happy. If we want a real friendship, we must first become the kind of person one would want to be friends with.

      Professor Cuddeback issues a challenge to personal virtue to everyone who longs for abiding friendship. Find someone else who is also striving to grow in virtue – together you can form the kind of friendship God intends us to have.

      Ancient and Biblical Wisdom

      In this course, Professor Cuddeback deftly weaves together the age-old wisdom of the Greeks and the fundamental teachings of Sacred Scripture to reveal the most rewarding of human achievements – being a friend. He takes the thoughts of the great philosopher Aristotle, the Angelic Doctor St. Thomas Aquinas, and the sublime teachings of Jesus Christ to illustrate the nature and requirements of true friendship.

      Join Professor Cuddeback to discover what friendship is, why we seek it, why good friends are so often hard to find, and how to make the friends (and be the friend) you’ve always desired.

    • Ultimate Questions Ultimate Answers

      $49.95

      Asking the Big Questions

      From the beginning of time, people have wondered about the meaning of human life. Who are we? Why are we here? What is the point of it all? These questions have eternal significance, and just asking them tends to change the way people live their lives.

      But there are even more fundamental questions than these, questions that ask not only about our being, but about being itself. What does it mean for anything to exist? What makes a being a being? How does being differ from nonbeing? And the ultimate question: Why is there something rather than nothing?

      Philosophy and the Science of Being

      Philosophy, in its traditional form as the love of wisdom and pursuit of truth, strives to answer these ultimate questions. And the branch of philosophy that seeks to do so is metaphysics. Aristotle called it the science of being because it is concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of existence itself.

      Catholics might ask, why study metaphysics or philosophy? Don’t we have the answers to those questions in theology? But as St. Thomas Aquinas shows, revealed theology is the study of God as he is in himself. What Aquinas calls philosophical theology or metaphysics, studies God as the cause of being. Metaphysics proves through logical deduction that the existence of the universe requires a First Cause, a Creator, to account for why there is anything at all.

      Metaphysics in the Catholic Tradition

      Dr. Gregory T. Doolan offers a survey of metaphysics in the Catholic tradition. He discusses these topics and more:

      * The distinction between philosophy and theology
      * The nature, principles, and causes of being
      * The existence of God as the first cause of all being

      Professor Doolan begins with the roots of metaphysics in pre-Christian Greek philosophy from the great minds of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. The course highlights the crowning philosophical achievements of St. Thomas Aquinas during the 13th century. Finally, Professor Doolan references the modern philosophical decline that followed St. Thomas Aquinas.

      If you’re ready to explore the deepest realities of existence, join Professor Gregory T. Doolan for this philosophical survey of metaphysics.

    • 7 Threats Against The Culture Of Life

      $49.95

      Join Dr. Scott Gaylord for an in-depth exploration of the scientific, legal, philosophical, and moral dimensions of some of the most important battleground issues regarding the Culture of Life:

      * Redefining life
      * Abortion and contraception
      * Embyronic stem cell research
      * In Vitro fertilization
      * And more!

      The threat to the Culture of Life that these issues pose has intensified in recent years, due to at least three ongoing developments:

      1. Advances in scientific research and technology, which enable us to control the creation (and destruction) of human life in unprecedented ways
      2. The ever-increasing reliance of our society on the courts to legislate what is right or wrong regarding these scientific advances
      3. The loss of a moral dimension to the scientific and legal discussion that determines how society treats the most vulnerable among us at the beginning, as well as the end, of life.

      A complete understanding of these pressing life issues requires an understanding of the interrelation between science, law, and morality. This interconnectedness is all too often ignored in public debate about these life issues. Professor Gaylord highlights Catholic teaching which considers law, science, philosophy, and morality to be part of a unified whole, rooted in the essential and inviolable sanctity and dignity of the human person.

      In a statement titled Right to Life and the Dignity of the Human Person, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops affirmed: Every social decision and institution must be judged in light of whether it protects or undermines the life and dignity of the human person. Professor Gaylord takes this statement and makes it the basis for examining seven threats to the Culture of Life – judging them based on Catholic teaching and the dignity of every human person, no matter their age or size.

    • Quodlibet : Poetry Of Celebration Challenge And Comedy

      $14.99

      Quodlibet: a theological or philosophical issue presented for formal argument or disputation; usually humorous musical melody. Reading like a recipe including plenty of thought-provoking theology, a handful of double entendre, layers of perspective, and a dash of humor for a slightly thicker flavor, author Lance Barrett’s poetic devices memorialize the daily challenges, failures, and successes of striving to become Christ-like. With a buffet of rhyming wonders, haikus, and aesthetically enticing words of wisdom and wit, Barrett offers a feast that will guide readers toward faith, hope, and the ability to love sacrificially. Creating what can only be considered an interpretation of the classic lyrical formulas, Quodlibet presents the emblematic characteristics of the Christian life. Ranging from poems under an overarching theme of goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, Barrett’s work will lead readers to a deeper understanding of the greatest composer of rhyme and reason–God.

    • New Earth : Awakening To Your Lifes Purpose

      $29.95

      Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents listeners with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.

      Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.

      In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are, which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are, and learn to live and breathe freely.

    • Pensees (Unabridged)

      $29.95

      ‘If we submit everything to reason our religion will be left with nothing mysterious or supernatural’

      Blaise Pascal, the precociously brilliant contemporary of Descartes, was a gifted mathematician and physicist, but it is his unfinished apologia for the Christian religion upon which his reputation now rests. The Pensees is a collection of philosohical fragments, notes and essays in which Pascal explores the contradictions of human nature in pscyhological, social, metaphysical and-above all-theological terms. Mankind emerges from Pascal’s analysis as a wretched and desolate creature within an impersonal universe, but who can be transformed through faith in God’s grace.

      This masterly translation conveys Pascal’s disarmingly personal tone and captures all the fire and passion of the original. Also contained in this volume are a comparison between different editions, appendices and a bibliography.

      To understand the culture in which we live, you need to be familiar with the ideas that have shaped it.

      In Ligonier’s survey series, The Consequences of Ideas, R.C. Sproul traces the contours of Western philosophy throughout history and shows how our culture evolved to what it is today.

      From ancient Greek thinkers like Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle to Christian philosophers such as Augustine, Anselm and Aquinas to the shapers of modern thought such as Hume, Kant and Nietzsche, R.C. demonstrates the consequences of each of these and other important thinkers’ ideas on world events, theology, the fine arts and culture, as well as our everyday lives.

      Listen, and you will hear echoes of their ideas in your daily conversations – especially as you witness to unbelievers.
