Aidan Wheelan had built a successful life with nothing more than his wits and an instinct for profit. Not yet forty and already worth a good seven figures life seemed complete but then a knock at his door changed it forever. Everything Aidan valued, his beautiful wife, great kids and handsome home were at risk. But just when his long fight against authority to get back everything he’d lost was succeeding, victory could be snatched from his grasp.

When our Catholic faith is challenged, we all struggle with finding the answers to these questions. In Nothing But the Truth, Karl Keating leavens history, theology, and apologetics with his characteristic wit and candor, as he shares accounts of our faith on trial and how he and others respond to each challenge. Readers are treated to a roller coaster ride that carries them from John Henry Cardinal Newman to Ayn Rand, and from Japan to Keating's backyard in San Diego.

Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in modern black nationalist leaders such as Stokely Carmichael and Malcolm X. But what of the ideological precursors to these modern leaders, the writers, and leaders from whose intellectual legacy modern black nationalism emerged? Wilson Jeramiah Moses, whom the Village Voice called one of the foremost historians of black nationalism, has here collected the most influential speeches, articles, and letters that inform the intellectual underpinnings of contemporary black nationalism, returning our focus to black nationalism at its inception. The goal of early black nationalists was the return of the African-American population to Africa to create a sovereign nation-state and to formulate an ideological basis for a concept of national culture. Most early black nationalists believed that this return was directed by the hand of God. Moses examines the evolution of black nationalist thought through several phases, from its proto-nationalisic phase in the late 1700s through a hiatus in the 1830s, through its flourishing in the 1850s, its eventual eclipse in the 1870s, and its resurgence in the Garvey movement of the 1920s. Moses provides us with documents that illustrate the motivations of both whites and blacks as they sought the removal of the black population. We hear from Thomas Jefferson, who held that it was self-evident that black and white populations could not intermingle on an equal basis or merge to form one happy society, and who toyed with the idea of a mass deportation of the black American population. We see that the profit motive is an important motive behind any nationalist movement in the letters between African American capitalists Paul Cuffe and James Forten. Among the more difficult selections to classify in this collection, Robert Alexander Young's Ethiopian Manifesto prophesied the coming of a prophetic liberator of the African race. The Christian nature of nineteenth century black nationalism is evident in Blyden's The Call of Providence. Moses rounds out the volume with contributions from more well- known voices such as those of Marcus Garvey, W.E.B. Dubois, and others. Classical Black Nationalism will serve as a point of departure for anyone interested in gaining a foundational knowledge of the disparate voices behind this often discussed but seldom understood movement.

First published in 1978, and in its fourth edition, Brian Edwards deals with so much in relation to the Bible: revelation, authority, inspiration and inerrancy, Jesus' view of the Old Testament, the Old and New Testament canons, textual criticism, the history of different translations, and biblical accuracy. One chapter gives a helpful overview of pretty much every recent translation. There is a strong concluding exhortation to be a consistent Christ-centred, bible-centred evangelical. The author answers questions such as 'Who are the critics of the Bible and what are they saying?', 'What do we mean by Inspiration?', 'What does the Bible say about itself?', 'How sufficient and final is it?', 'Why have we just sixty-six books in the Bible?', 'How can we properly understand it?', 'When was it written and how did our English Bible come to us?', 'Where does archaeology reveal Bible accuracy?' and 'What about supposed errors/contradictions?' Brian Edwards answers critics and refutes supposed contradictions, clearly showing that it is perfectly logical to believe the Bible. This book will give any reader added confidence in God's Word!

This book discusses the proper definitions of entropy, the valid interpretation of entropy and some useful applications of the concept of entropy. Unlike many books which apply the concept of entropy to systems for which it is not even defined (such as living systems, black holes and the entire universe), these applications will help the reader to understand the meaning of entropy. It also emphasizes the limitations of the applicability of the concept of entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics. As with the previous books by the author, this book aims at a clear and mystery-free presentation of the central concept in thermodynamics -- the entropy. In this book, the concepts of entropy and the Second Law are presented in a friendly, simple language. It is devoid of all kinds of fancy and pompous statements made by authors of popular science books who write on this subject.
