A Walking Contradiction By Ta'shae Sterling
Paperback: $14.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Ask yourself, if the world ends today would you be content with what you have contributed thus far? Not to your immediate family but to your environment, to us as a society? If the world did end... More > today what would you really be leaving behind? Always following the crowd? Being rude to others? Procrastinating so long on achieving a goal that it never happened? Take a minute and think about your answers. After asking myself these very same questions and pausing to reflect on the answers I realized how I had been maneuvering throughout life prior to this self-questioning was not conducive to the representation of the person I wanted to be remembered as. I wanted to be someone kind, a leader, a doer, and accomplisher of all the goals I had ever envisioned. Someone who made a difference in people’s lives they encountered not someone who hindered or harmed others. Yet, my actions I had been performing did not support these aspirations. They were contradictory. I was a walking contradiction.< Less
The Fallenness of Man and the Graciousness of God By Brian Orr

This book is a defense of the five points of Calvinism written in response to an article by Stephen Richardson, Chair of the Biblical Studies Department and Associate Professor at Pacific Christian... More > College of Ministry and Biblical Studies, Fullerton, Ca. My book addresses the major flaws in his position, which are commonly found in arguments against the doctrines of grace (aka. Calvinism). He seeks to dismiss Calvinism, claiming that it is contradictory to the Word of God. However, instead of presenting biblically sound arguments, his responses, like all opponents to Calvinism, are philosophically grounded, failing to support his position when held up to the testimony of Scripture. In fact, he fails to provide one Bible verse in his article to support his defense. My ultimate goal in this work is to open the hearts and eyes of Christians to a bigger view of God, helping them see that God alone gets the glory in all things, particularly salvation.< Less
Common legacies - Divergent outcomes By Laszlo Czaban
Paperback: $17.56
Prints in 3-5 business days
The East European transformation posited a challenge to established theories of institutional systems and business and economic studies. How could a theoretical framework simultaneously account for... More > the radical changes in the institutional system and macroeconomic processes as well as for the rather different pace of changes at micro and mezzo levels? How could the changed attributes of firms and the endurance of old practices within these firms be reconciled in a coherent theoretical framework? It is argued here that without the analysis of enterprise transformation, interpretations of the East European transition inevitably lead to contradictory conclusions. Thus the contribution of this book is the interpretation of the enterprise transformation in the context of the institutional and economic transformation, through the comparative study of enterprise transformation in two former Soviet Republics, now independent states, Estonia and Ukraine.< Less

On Sophistical Refutations By Aristotle & W. A. Pickard-Cambridge
eBook (ePub): $2.95
(1 Ratings)
“For reasoning rests on certain statements such that they involve necessarily the assertion of something other than what has been stated, through what has been stated: refutation is reasoning... More > involving the contradictory of the given conclusion.” ... Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC), is one of most important philosophers of all time and remain a fountain of inspiration for modern thinkers. His works included logic, physics, politics, metaphysics, rhetoric and zoology, biology, poetic tragedy and ethics that are still relevant today. He also preferred to define things in more concrete and scientific manners and seemed to always have had explanations for everything around him. Sophistical Refutations identifies thirteen fallacies or false reasoning often due to a misconception or a presumption. From these fallacies, he also shows how to construct arguments for a position one has already decided to adopt and how to detect weaknesses in the arguments of others.< Less

Mind and Body (Illustrated) By William Walker Atkinson
eBook (ePub): $1.99
“Mind and Body—Mental States and Physical Conditions! To the mind of those who have contented themselves with merely the superficial aspects of things, these two things—mind and... More > body; and mental states and physical conditions—seem to be as far apart as the two poles; seem to be opposites and contradictories impossible of reconciliation. But to those who have penetrated beneath the surface of things, these two apparent opposites are seen to be so closely related and inter-related—so blended and mingled together in manifestation—that it is practically impossible to scientifically determine where the one leaves off and the other begins. And so constant and close is their mutual action and reaction, that it often becomes impossible to state positively which is the cause and which the effect.”< Less
Powerful Memories By James Carman
eBook (PDF): $7.68
How do enemies evolve into a group of love? This is the story of how it happened for us. How four individuals were born into different worlds, nurtured under different philosophies, and guided into... More > conflicting concepts. How we enjoyed happy beginnings in our lives, fought through some private hells, rebuilt our devastated lives, and ignored contradictory circumstances to bring about an unpredictable, unforeseen, and paradoxical relationship. Tennyson’s line, “I am a part of all that I have met…,” is profoundly illustrated by the many, many people who met and were influenced by another, meetings which came to pass primarily because of a German POW during World War II in Memphis, Tennessee. Edwin Pelz, who was the catalyst, who was a POWer of LOVE! – who became a part of those he met in a positive and endearing way, so much so, that I think his story needs to be told. It would be beneficial to show how one man’s gratitude was the seed.< Less
