Where No Fear Was : A Book About Fear (Illustrated) By Arthur Christopher Benson
eBook (ePub): $1.99
“There have been many attempts in the history of mankind to escape from the dominion of fear; the essence of fear, that which prompts it, is the consciousness of our vulnerability. What we all... More > dread is the disease or the accident that may disable us, the loss of money or credit, the death of those whom we love and whose love makes the sunshine of our life, the anger and hostility and displeasure and scorn and ill-usage of those about us. These are the definite things which the anxious mind forecasts, and upon which it mournfully dwells. The object then in the minds of the philosophers or teachers who would fain relieve the unhappiness of the world, has been always to suggest ways in which this vulnerability may be lessened; and thus their object has been to disengage as far as possible the hopes and affections of men from things which must always be fleeting.< Less

Beside Still Waters is a nonfiction book by Gregg Easterbrook. In it he defends religion against its critics. He expounds a theory of religion and Christianity based on his reading of the Old and New... More > Testaments, in which God is not an omnipotent omniscient being, but rather a limited and perhaps awesomely powerful being who learns and grows over time. In this way, Easterbrook seeks to explain the ravages and evil of the Old Testament God and to bring back Jesus's original teachings of charity and of love for God and for fellow humans.The title of the book comes from Psalm 23, which begins with "The Lord is my shepherd" and includes the line, "He leads me beside still waters."

A spring is any natural situation where water flows from an aquifer to the Earth's surface. It is a component of the hydrosphere.A spring may be the result of karst topography where surface water has... More > infiltrated the Earth's surface (recharge area), becoming part of the area groundwater. The groundwater then travels through a network of cracks and fissure—openings ranging from intergranular spaces to large caves. The water eventually emerges from below the surface, in the form of a karst spring.The forcing of the spring to the surface can be the result of a confined aquifer in which the recharge area of the spring water table rests at a higher elevation than that of the outlet. Spring water forced to the surface by elevated sources are artesian wells.
