God Is Not Great Book Description:

In god is Not Great Hitchens turned his formidable eloquence and rhetorical energy to the most controversial issue in the world: God and religion. The result is a devastating critique of religious faith god Is Not Great is the ultimate case against religion. In a series of acute readings of the major religious texts, Christopher Hitchens demonstrates the ways in which religion is man-made, dangerously sexually repressive and distorts the very origins of the cosmos. Above all, Hitchens argues that the concept of an omniscient God has profoundly damaged humanity, and proposes that the world might be a great deal better off without 'him'.

God is Not Great how Religion Poisons Everything Book Description:

Christopher Hitchens takes on his biggest subject yet - the increasingly dangerous role of religion in the world. He makes the ultimate case against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos. With eloquent clarity, Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and reason, in which hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope's awesome view of the universe, and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix.

Who Needs the Old Testament Book Description:

Who needs the Old Testament? It might be a literary classic, but what relevance does it have today? How much of it can we believe anyway? Katharine Dell invites you to rediscover the appeal of the Old Testament for the twenty-first century. In doing so she deftly refutes hard-line attacks by writers such as Richard Dawkins; she firmly critiques the atheistic agenda of those scholars who seek to undermine the Old Testament's historical grounding; and she helpfully reassures those within the church who express doubts about its usefulness as a resource for Christian life and thought. Written by a world expert, this book will help many, both inside and outside the church, to gain a more informed appreciation of the different kinds of literature contained in the Old Testament, and a more nuanced understanding of the developing vision of God to which they witness. CONTENTS Preface Introduction PART ONE: Breaking the New Atheist Spell Chapter 1: From Dawkins to Marcion: countering scepticism and atheism. Chapter 2: The character and scope of the Old Testament: Countering a bad press. Chapter 3: Meeting Dawkins head-on: texts in Genesis. Chapter 4: Homing in on Hitchens: Exodus, Numbers and legal texts. Chapter 5: Countering Dawkins: Texts in the ‘histories’. PART TWO: Engaging with the Old Testament Chapter 6: The Writings: a neglected corner of the Old Testament. Chapter 7: The Prophets: a more convincing source of morality? Chapter 8: Back to the Pentateuch and Historical books: the power of story. Chapter 9: Questioning the history of Israel: scepticism within the Academy. Chapter 10: A Christian Perspective on the Old Testament.

The Doctrinal Treatises Book Description:

The most weighty of the doctrinal treatises is that on the Holy Trinity. The Latin original (De Trinitate contra Arianos libri quindecim), is contained in the 8th volume of the Benedictine edition. It is the most elaborate, and probably also the ablest and profoundest patristic discussion of this central doctrine of the Christian religion, unless we except the Orations against the Arians, by Athanasius, "the Father of Orthodoxy," who devoted his life to the defense of the Divinity of Christ. Augustine, owing to his defective knowledge of Greek, wrote his work independently of the previous treatises of the Eastern Church on that subject. He bestowed more time and care upon it than on any other book, except the City of God. Besides this treatise the following works are included: The Enchiridion, or On Faith, Hope and Love, On the Catechising of the Uninstructed, Treatise on Faith and the Creed, Concerning Faith of Things not Seen, On the Profit of Believing On the Creed.

The Good Book Is Better Than It Used to Be Book Description:

F. Calvin Parker attended his first Vacation Bible School when he was four years old, and he consumed more scripture than Kool-Aid or cookies. There was much to thrill a young mind. He heard the amazing stories of Noah in the zoo-like ark and Daniel in the lions' den, along with proverbs and psalms that nourished his soul his entire life. He remained a devoted student of scripture, listening to the radio sermons of Charles E. Fuller and reading John R. Rice. While in the Army, he joined Calvary Baptist Church in New York, which was led by preacher William Ward Ayer, a fundamentalist stalwart. Parker and his wife Harriett went to Japan in 1951 as Southern Baptist missionaries. Reading the Bible in Japanese, which differs sharply from English, allowed him to rediscover its teachings and led to a personal transformation. The scriptures began to excite and challenge him as never before. Join Parker as he breaks free from oppressive teachings and shares what he's learned over eighty years of studying the Bible in The Good Book Is Better Than It Used to Be.
