The Greater Weight of Glory Excerpt :

"That's my son!" These three words were the tidal wave that destroyed the entire landscape of Robin Farnsworth's life, an ER nurse on duty when she identified the dead man on the stretcher. Growing up in the shadow of death after the loss of her brother, Robin understood the devastation that the death of a child causes. "Where is God?" the eight-year-old girl asks the night sky. As her family crumbles, she runs away, only to come crashing to her knees years later. Broken, alcoholic, and a single mom, she finally gets her answer through a divine appointment with Jesus Christ. Years later, her oldest son, Spencer, would also surrender to Christ, exchanging a life of rage and violence for a transforming peace and freedom. Spencer lived his faith with an unusual passion and urgency that would produce an eternal harvest of changed lives beyond his death. At age twenty-one, he was the unintended target of murder. Where is God? The answer is surprising as the author brings you alongside of her in the midst of monumental pain and darkness, discovering not just where God is, but who he is. This is a story of rescue and redemption, of the power of forgiveness and faith within a mother and her son; two broken and imperfect lives that are intercepted by a loving and almighty God.

C S Lewis s Dangerous Idea

  • Author : Victor Reppert

  • Release Date : 2009-09-20
  • Genre: Religion
  • Pages : null
  • ISBN 10 : 0830874658

C S Lewis s Dangerous Idea Excerpt :

Who ought to hold claim to the more dangerous idea--Charles Darwin or C. S. Lewis? Daniel Dennett argued for Darwin in Darwin's Dangerous Idea (Touchstone Books, 1996). In this book Victor Reppert champions C. S. Lewis. Darwinists attempt to use science to show that our world and its inhabitants can be fully explained as the product of a mindless, purposeless system of physics and chemistry. But Lewis claimed in his argument from reason that if such materialism or naturalism were true then scientific reasoning itself could not be trusted. Victor Reppert believes that Lewis's arguments have been too often dismissed. In C. S. Lewis's Dangerous Idea Reppert offers careful, able development of Lewis's thought and demonstrates that the basic thrust of Lewis's argument from reason can bear up under the weight of the most serious philosophical attacks. Charging dismissive critics, Christian and not, with ad hominem arguments, Reppert also revisits the debate and subsequent interaction between Lewis and the philosopher Elizabeth Anscombe. And addressing those who might be afflicted with philosophical snobbery, Reppert demonstrates that Lewis's powerful philosophical instincts perhaps ought to place him among those other thinkers who, by contemporary standards, were also amateurs: Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, Descartes, Spinoza, Locke and Hume. But even more than this, Reppert's work exemplifies the truth that the greatness of Lewis's mind is best measured, not by his ability to do our thinking for us, but by his capacity to provide sound direction for taking our own thought further up and further in.

C S Lewis and a Problem of Evil Excerpt :

C.S. Lewis was concerned about an aspect of the problem of evil he called subjectivism: the tendency of one's perspective to move towards self-referentialism and utilitarianism. In C.S. Lewis and a Problem of Evil, Jerry Root provides a holistic reading of Lewis by walking the reader through all of Lewis's published work as he argues Lewis's case against subjectivism. Furthermore, the book reveals that Lewis consistently employed fiction to make his case, as virtually all of his villains are portrayed assubjectivists. Lewis's warnings are prophetic; this book is not merely an exposition of Lewis, it is also a timely investigation into the problem of evil.
