How to Think About God

Author: Mortimer J. Adler

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

ISBN: 9781439105139

Category: Philosophy

Page: 180

View: 6598

Dr. Adler, in his discussion, extends and modernizes the argument for the existence of God developed by Aristotle and Aquinas. Without relying on faith, mysticism, or science (none of which, according to Dr. Adler, can prove or disprove the existence of God), he uses a rationalist argument to lead the reader to a point where he or she can see that the existence of God is not necessarily dependent upon a suspension of disbelief. Dr. Adler provides a nondogmatic exposition of the principles behind the belief that God, or some other supernatural cause, has to exist in some form. Through concise and lucid arguments, Dr. Adler shapes a highly emotional and often erratic conception of God into a credible and understandable concept for the lay person.

Beyond Reasonable Doubt

ISBN: 1606472577

Page: 492

Beyond Reasonable Doubt is not just another book among many tackling the issues surrounding the role of women in the church. After witnessing discussions on this topic in settings as varied as the seminary classroom, the foyers in the local church, and even his own living room, Scott Womble sought to bring these perspectives into one holistic discussion. The result is a comprehensive resource which addresses theology, exegesis and everyday life. Utilizing the hypothetical setting of a courtroom, Womble argues that the case which sentences women to secondary roles in ministry demands a retrial. An accumulation of 95 solid arguments is presented on behalf of the women who need a defense attorney as they await the verdict regarding their place in the church. His 95 theses raise more than reasonable doubt and clearly show that women must be released into ministry. Scott Womble (B.S., Saint Louis Christian College; M. Div., Lincoln Christian Seminary) is professor of biblical studies at Saint Louis Christian College where he also serves as the Adults in Ministry Coordinator. Prior to joining the college in 2002, Womble served as full-time preaching minister in central Illinois for seven years. He still regularly fills the pulpit on Sunday mornings, having preached at over fifty churches. He is a regular book reviewer for the Stone-Campbell Journal. Womble is an avid sports enthusiast. Scott and his wife Lisa have been married twenty-three years and have two children, Amanda and Michael.

Seeking Justice in Child Sexual Abuse

Shifting Burdens and Sharing Responsibilities

Author: Karen M. Staller,Kathleen Coulborn Faller

St. Mary County is a small rural midwestern enclave with a unique approach to handling accusations of child sexual abuse. Hoping to spare children the trauma of lengthy court appearances and probing interrogations, St. Mary's professionals strive to obtain confessions from accused sex offenders rather than ask the victim to bear the burden of proof. Treating this county as a critical case study, scholars from a variety of fields come together to analyze this community's unique approach. They address relevant case law, innovative treatments for both victim and offender, and the social history of child sexual abuse as a national policy concern. They cover legal burdens and scientific methods, prosecutors and protocol, the interrogation of victims and suspects, the use of expert witnesses, defense strategies, and practice wisdom in videotaping. In addition, they examine the unfolding drama of a single legal case from incidence to conviction. The result is a fascinating dialogue that confronts the unique complexities of child sexual abuse for readers on all sides of the issue. Introducing a model that makes enormous headway in the pursuit of justice, fairness, and trauma treatment, this interdisciplinary text is an indispensible tool for all communities seeking redress.

Ecology and Conservation of Fishes

Written as a stand-alone textbook for students and a useful reference for professionals in government and private agencies, academic institutions, and consultants, Ecology and Conservation of Fishes provides broad, comprehensive, and systematic coverage of all aquatic systems from the mountains to the oceans. The book begins with overview discussions on the ecology, evolution, and diversity of fishes. It moves on to address freshwater, estuarine, and marine ecosystems and identifies factors that affect the distribution and abundance of fishes. It then examines the adaptations of fishes as a response to constraints posed in ecosystems. The book concludes with four chapters on applied ecology to discuss the critical issues of management, conservation, biodiversity crises, and climate change. Major marine fisheries have collapsed, and there are worldwide declines in freshwater fish populations. Fishery scientists and managers must become more effective at understanding and dealing with resource issues. If not, fish species, communities, and entire ecosystems will continue to decline as habitats change and species are lost. Ecology and Conservation of Fishes has taken a historical and functional approach to explain how we got where we are, providing old and new with a better foundation as ecologists and conservationists, and most importantly, it awakens senses of purpose and need. Past management practices are reviewed, present programs considered, and the need for incorporating principles of applied ecology in future practices is emphasized.
