This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1887 edition. Excerpt: ...His onlybegotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Or as His well-beloved disciple puts it, "God is love;" and "herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins," (St. John iii. 16, and First Epistle, iv. 10). 55. And if we again revert to the early chapters of Genesis, we have the same truth of God presented to us, partly in figure, partly in history: for our contention is that the creation, the paradisaical state of innocence, the temptation, the fall, the banishment from the tree of life, the protevangelical promise, and the entire subsequent history of mankind, whether sacred or secular, natural or supernatural, can only be rightly apprehended and correctly appraised, by viewing all--as a whole and in its various parts--in connexion with Him who, whether in the ethical or metaphysical sense, is the world-redeeming as well as the world-creating and completing Mediator: and who, as such, becomes the revelation of the love of the all-Good through the grace of the indwelling Spirit. 56. And if this be true, is it not plainly to be seen, why science and philosophy not only have failed utterly to meet the problem of the whence, the why, the whither of things, but have reached the conclusion that herein they cannot know, and even ventured to assert that any notion of teleology, whencesoever derived, is a delusion? For the simple truth is, that the enigma of life, being a moral and spiritual and not merely a rational and intellectual one, cannot be solved except by the aid of the mystery of God manifest in the flesh, in whom and through whom the great teleological truth is...

Near midnight, the heralded and huge White Star liner Titanic, her invincibility never before in question, is a tiny speck on a vast ocean. Four days out on a much-anticipated maiden voyage, the luxury vessel has been fatally grazed by an iceberg. Labeled unsinkable by an adoring public, Titanic will plunge beneath the cold waters of the North Atlantic in under three hours. In Titanic Warning, author Casey Sabella blends a vivid re-telling of the disaster with commentary on the state of the modern-day Church and the lack of commitment to discipling the masses. How did three ships in the vicinity, called upon to rescue the 2500 stranded souls, reflect real personalities in the modern age? Are we prideful like the Titanic? Are we indifferent to the cries of humanity, like the Californian, or do we launch a rescue like the Carpathia? Does the burden to help urge us to escape from it all, like the Samson? The questions are personal, the answers, crucial. Will we heed the warning to put salvation before gleaming monuments? May God help us board the right ship! STUDY AND DISCUSSION QUESTIONS AT THE END OF EACH CHAPTER.

The practice of the God-ordained way in its four steps should be our experience. The first step is to fulfill the New Testament priesthood of the gospel. To preach the gospel is to get sinners saved to be members of the Body of Christ. The second step is to nourish and feed the new believers in the home meetings. The third step is to perfect the saints through the group meetings.... The fourth and last step of the God-ordained way is prophesying in the church meetings for the building up of the church, consummating in the organic building up of the Body of Christ. We should endeavor to build up the local church. Eventually, this building up will consummate in the building up of the Body of Christ.

Dr. Maria Montessori opened the first Casa dei Bambini (Childrens House) on 6 January 1907 in San Lorenzo, Rome. Through her observations and work with these children she discovered their astonishing, almost effortless ability to learn. Thus began a century of great work uncovering the true nature of childhood. Times have changed, and science has made great progress, and so has our work; but our principles have only been confirmed, and along with them our conviction that mankind can hope for a solution to its problems, among which the most urgent are those of peace and unity, only by turning its attention and energies to the discovery of the child and to the development of the great potentialities of the human personality in the course of its formation. Dr. Montessori from the forward to The Discovery of the Child, Poona 1948

Hegel's Philosophy of Right

In this important new book, David James offers an innovative interpretation of a key element of Hegel's political thought. James seeks to identify the basic aims of Hegel's philosophy of right through an analysis of his approach to subjectivity. He argues that the basic aim of Hegel's philosophy of right is to accommodate subjectivity within a framework of universally valid ethical norms and that an analysis of how Hegel attempts to do this provides a key to understanding his philosophy of right. This in turn makes possible a highly unified interpretation of the project that determines the shape and structure of his theory of modern ethical life. The ways in which Hegel uses the term subjectivity have never before been analysed in sufficient detail. James shows that Hegel's understanding of this term depends very much on the context in which he is using it and by analysing this carefully shows that this concept is essentially related to his theory of freedom. This fascinating book offers a unified interpretation of Hegel's philosophy of right and will make an important contribution to the study of Hegel's political thought.

This book, written in an accessible style, is an exhaustive survey of the philosophy of tragedy from antiquity to the present. From Aristotle to Žižek, philosophers have asked: why, notwithstanding its distressing content, do we value tragedy? Some point to a certain pleasure that results from tragedy, others to the knowledge we gain from tragedy - of psychology, ethics, freedom, or immortality.

The purpose of this collection of papers is to introduce English speaking philosophers and theologians to something of the variety of the contemporary debate about the religious relevance of Hegel's thought. It is published in the hope that it will appeal not only to specialised students of Hegel's Philosophy of Religion but to a wide audience of scholars interested in Hegel's thought as a whole. The volume grew out of the 1987 Oxford conference on Thought and Faith in the Philosophy of Hegel, but has since developed beyond the confines of the original conference programme. The programme of the conference consisted of five major papers on different aspects of Hegel's religious thought and its reception, followed by a somewhat shorter commentary delivered by another scholar in the same field. This basic format has been retained, but a number of the commentaries have been extended or rewritten and an entirely new piece by Kurt Meist has been commissioned for the purpose of this collection. The volume includes studies of the Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion and the Phenomenology, as well as pieces dealing with the theological relevance of Hegel's philosophy of history and Kierkegaard's attack on Hegel. It con cludes with an examination of the relevance of Hegel's doctrine of absolute Spirit to the modern defence of his philosophy as a whole.

Churches have split and denominations have formed over the issue of church government. Yet while many Christians can explain their particular church’s form of rule and may staunchly uphold it, few have a truly biblical understanding of it. What model for governing the church does the Bible provide? Is there room for different methods? Or is just one way the right way?In Who Runs the Church? Four predominant approaches to church government are presented by respected proponents: • Episcopalianism (Peter Toon)• Presbyterianism (L. Roy Taylor)• Single-Elder Congregationalism (Paige Patterson)• Plural-Elder Congregationalism (Samuel E. Waldron). As in other Counterpoints books, each view is followed by critiques from the other contributors, and its advocate then responds. The interactive and fair-minded nature of the Counterpoints format allows the reader to consider the strengths and weaknesses of each view and draw informed, personal conclusions.
