Envoy to Eidolon Excerpt :

Tamsyn Lyman’s day can’t get any worse—or can it? It would seem so when her car breaks down along the interstate during a thunderstorm with her grandmother’s dead cat Guido inside. Thankfully, middle-aged tow truck driver Daniel Stevens is there to assist. In the rain, both Tamsyn and Daniel are struck by another vehicle. Instead of waking up in the hospital—or worse, not waking up at all—they find themselves on the alien planet of Eidolon, both of them young, healthy, and alive, including Guido. Only Tamsyn’s sapphire necklace, a gift from her grandmother, remains to remind them of Earth and home. On this new planet, these confused explorers must evolve quickly to survive. They meet strange creatures and discover that it was the mysterious Heart of Eidolon that beckoned them there. Tamsyn and Daniel represent some sort of change, but what does this far-off planet need, and will these novice space explorers ever get home?

The Eidolon Excerpt :

When physicist Robert Strong – newly unemployed and single – is offered a hundred thousand pounds for a week’s work, he’s understandably sceptical. But Victor Amos, head of the mysterious Observation Research Board, has compelling proof that the next round of experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider poses a real threat to the whole world. And he needs Robert to sabotage it. Robert’s life is falling apart. His work at the Dark Matter Research Laboratory in Middlesbrough was taken away from him; his girlfriend, struggling to cope with the loss of her sister, has left. He returns home to Scotland, seeking sanctuary and rest, and instead starts to question his own sanity as the dead begin appearing to him, in dreams and in waking. Accepting Amos’s offer, Robert flies to Geneva, but as he infiltrates CERN, everything he once understood about reality and science, about the boundary between life and death, changes forever. Mixing science, philosophy and espionage, Libby McGugan’s stunning debut is a thriller like no other.

Greek Philosophers as Theologians Excerpt :

Concepts of God presented by Greek philosophers were significantly different from the image of the divine of popular religion and indicate a fairly sophisticated theological reflection from the very inception of Greek philosophy. This book presents a comprehensive history of theological thought of Greek philosophers from the Presocratics to the early Hellenistic period. Concentrating on views concerning the attributes of God and their impact on eschatological and ethical thought, Drozdek explains that theology was of paramount importance for all Greek philosophers even in the absence of purely theological or religious language.
