Tidi is a larking little angel visiting the celestial school for guardian angels in order to become a guardian angel for children on Earth. He loves children more than anything! Although he‘s an eager pupil, he‘s also full of pranks and ideas. Saint Peter, the heavenly gatekeeper, can tell a story or two about that! Still, he can never hold a grudge against his „scallywag“, especially since Tidi always paints pretty pictures to make up for his mischief. Tidi can‘t wait to protect a child on Earth. But when Tidi becomes the cause for a terrible mishap, the heavenly authorities harbour serious doubts. Is it appropriate to send Tidi down to Earth already? Will he be able to cope with looking after a child? These concerns grow when Tidi makes it his mission to make The Good Lord laugh. He even dares to defy Master Rigoroso from the highest heavenly authorities when being reprimanded. That has serious consequences! In the end, everything turns out completely different – even for Tidi ... „Stubborn With a Pair of Wings“ is a humorous story, invigorating yet profound, not only for children but also for adults. This book will inspire children, parents and grandparents alike. And those who weren‘t keen on angels before will surely be captivated by the little heavenly scallywag‘s charm.

On Wings of Faith and Reason

The Christian Difference in Culture and Science

The distinctive contribution that Christianity makes to investigations of culture and science is that of a coherent vision of truth--a unifying truth that takes flight on the two wings of faith and reason. Against methodological reductionism, philosophical nihilism, and postmodern skepticism, such a vision affirms that the unity of truth is ultimate and personal and that science and culture participate therein according to their own geniuses. On Wings of Faith and Reason provides reasons for a unified vision of truth, while giving examples of the roles that faith and reason play in scientific activities and cultural expressions. Contributing authors from the fields of medicine, ethics, philosophy, and theology argue that Christianity makes a difference, not only in providing an understanding of the ultimate origin and end of the human person, but in contributing to practical applications. Christianity offers assurance about the course of scientific and cultural inquiry, while encouraging creative expression and personal excellence in its execution. Against fideists, it is argued that reason has a differentiated role to play in Christian efforts and theological investigations. Against rationalists, it is argued not only that faith builds up reason without making it a-rational or irrational, but also that it is a source of knowledge, the denial of which restricts not only our passive reception and active observation of reality, but also our creative responses to it. The image of two wings affirms that faith and reason exercise distinct roles, not the same role, in a unified flight of knowledge. It refutes the idea that isolated one-dimensional theories of truth will satisfy. The contributors are Jude Dougherty, Kevin L. Flannery, John Haas, Peter Kreeft, Richard John Neuhaus, Edmund Pellegrino, and Robert Sokolowski. ABOUT THE EDITOR: Craig Steven Titus is research professor at the Institute for the Psychological Sciences, as well as lecturer and researcher at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. He is coeditor of The Pinckaers Reader and author of Resilience and the Virtue of Fortitude, both published by CUA Press. He is also editor of the first volume in the John Henry Cardinal Newman Lecture Series, titled The Person and the Polis. PRAISE FOR THE BOOK: "This wonderfully readable volume collects seven essays delivered by leading Catholic scholars in the 2002-2003 John Henry Cardinal Newman Lecture Series sponsored by the Institute for the Psychological Sciences."--Matthew Levering, National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly

Annotation This textbook and its six supporting computer programs provide theoretical modeling of the aerodynamic characteristics of wings and bodies at low Mach numbers. The approach presented directly helps engineering students improve problem-solving skills by teaching them to discern the necessary steps associated with solving analytical problems. The book also presents a justification and rationale for validating end results that leave the student with an understanding of the answer. The text differs from others by providing interactive computer programs that allow the student to conduct trade studies. It provides case-specific software that permits the student to do considerably more characteristic analysis of user-selected wings and bodies than is possible with other introductory textbooks. In addition, the algorithms are capable of working problems at a level well beyond those typically solved by hand in other textbooks. This approach allows students to determine easily the effects of modifying parameters and geometry. Another benefit of using this textbook is the understanding students gain of the capabilities of large industrial codes.
