Unapologetic apologetics : meeting the challenges of theological studies( Book )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors meet head-on some of the most vexing issues in theological studies - the pervasiveness of contextualism, the question of error in Scripture, feminist challenges to our concept of God, the nature and coherence of the incarnation, the presumption of universalism, and the incursions of science into theology." "Throughout these presentations the authors expose the permeating influence of naturalism in theological studies as well as other philosophical tenets that are neither critiqued nor defended but merely assumed in much mainline theology. As a result, they expertly administer their prescription for false ideas - not quarantine but inoculation."--Jacket

The untamed God : a philosophical exploration of divine perfection, immutability, and simplicity by Jay W Richards( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essential tenets of classical theism regarding the doctrine of God can be stated fairly easily. However, questions have been raised regarding the coherence of these beliefs taken as a whole. Some have seen fit to abandon classical theism. Others have acknowledged tensions in the traditional concept of God and have sought to resolve them by means of making significant concessions. Jay Wesley Richards believes that classical theism with its biblical norm can and ought to be maintained. He shows how a philosophical defense, using the analytical tools of modal logic, can be mounted that preserves traditional Christian beliefs. Richards astutely defends essentialism, arguing that it is both intrinsic to the Christian understanding of God and preserves the contingency of creation and the God-world relation. To further clarify and defend his proposal he engages appreciatively and critically the thought of Karl Barth and Charles Hartshorne as well as addressing the related and currently debated matters of divine simplicity and immutability
The Hobbit party : the vision of freedom that Tolkien got, and the West forgot by Jonathan Witt( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anyone who has read "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" can gather that their author hated tyranny, but few know that the novelist who once described himself as a hobbit "in all but size" was- even by hobbit standards- a zealous proponent of economic freedom and small government. At a time when many are concerned that the West is sliding into political, economic, and moral bankruptcy, Jonathan Witt and Jay W. Richards show us how J.R.R. Tolkien has, in his beloved novels of Middle-Earth, drawn us a map to freedom."--Jacket

The magician's twin : C.S. Lewis on scientism, evolution, & intelligent design( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C.S. Lewis was not opposed to science at all, but was opposed to scientism, the idea that science offers the bar by which all other disciplines are measured. For him modern scientism is the twin of medieval magic. Lewis was influenced by G.K. Chesterton's The everlasting man, in which Chesterton proposed that man was a product of revolution, not evolution. Naturalistic evolution is either the product of a mindless, undirected process, or is the product of a mind. Lewis chose the latter alternative. He followed a rationalistic approach to science in which he saw that mind could not emerge out of a mindless process. At the same time he rejected the idea that a chance process of evolution could be combined with Christian thought in what is called "theistic evolution." Thus C.S. Lewis is being claimed today as a member of the intelligent design branch of science. The video's special features give more information on who C.S. Lewis is, what is his argument from reason for the existence of God, and who the scholars are that contributed to this DVD

The human advantage : the future of American work in an age of smart machines by Jay W Richards( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bestselling author, economist, and Fox News regular Jay W. Richards makes the definitive case for how the free market and individual responsibility can save the American Dream in an age of automation and mass disruption.For two and a half centuries, America has been held together by the belief that if you work hard and conduct yourself responsibly in this country, you will be able to prosper and leave a better life for your children. But in the last decade, that idea has come into crisis. A recession, the mass outsourcing of stable jobs, and a coming wave of automation that will replace millions of blue- and white-collar jobs alike have left millions worried that the game is "rigged" and that our best days behind us. In this story-driven manifesto on the future of American work, Jay Richards argues that such thinking is counterproductive--making us more fragile, more dependent, and less equipped to succeed in a rapidly changing economy. If we're going to survive, we need a new model for how ordinary people can thrive in this age of mass disruption. Richard pulls back the curtain on what's really happening in our economy, dispatching myths about capitalism, greed, and upward mobility. And he tells the stories of how real individuals who have begun to rebuild a culture of virtue, capitalizing on the skills that are most uniquely human: creativity, resilience, and empathy for the needs of others. Destined to take its place alongside classics like ECONOMICS IN ONE LESSON, THE HUMAN ADVANTAGE is the essential book for understanding the future of American work, and how each of us can make this era of staggering change work on our behalf
