More > matters as creation vs. evolution, the geocentric vs. the heliocentric, and the "fall of man" vs. A classic work on the history of science and freedom of thought in Christian Europe.

History of the Warfare of Science With Theology in Christendom By Andrew Dickerson White

White was the first president of Cornell University, and he caused some consternation in mid-nineteenth-century America by determining that the university would not be beholden to any particular... More > school of religious or theological thought. Naturally, there were complaints and public outcries. White's response was to spend the rest of his life defending his viewpoint that science needs to be free of religious restriction. What began as a few speeches and articles became this detailed 20 chapter tome. The primary focus is the struggle for science to overcome the Christian bias. The earth is round, it is not the center of the universe, disease is not the result of devil possession, comets are not fireballs from an angry god. Released in 1896, the science presented is a bit dated but the historcial data is very relevent.< Less

He climbed up the tree with a saw and sat on a branch and thought, “I want to only learn about science and I don’t want the symbology or theology so I will cut off this branch and grow my... More > own tree.”  He placed the saw between him and the trunk and started to saw. The tree spoke out, “What are you doing?  You are going to fall with the branch.”  The man continued to saw . . .

To the Memory of EZRA CORNELL I DEDICATE THIS BOOK. INTRODUCTION My book is ready for the printer, and as I begin this preface my eye lights upon the crowd of Russian peasants at work on the... More > Neva under my windows. With pick and shovel they are letting the rays of the April sun into the great ice barrier which binds together the modern quays and the old granite fortress where lie the bones of the Romanoff Czars. This barrier is already weakened; it is widely decayed, in many places thin, and everywhere treacherous; but it is, as a whole, so broad, so crystallized about old boulders, so imbedded in shallows, so wedged into crannies on either shore, that it is a great danger. P.S.--Owing to a wish to give more thorough revision to some parts of my work, it has been withheld from the press until the present date. A. D. W.

Cardinal Newman: Q & A in Theology, Church History, and Conversion By Dave Armstrong
eBook (ePub): $2.99

Cardinal Newman stated “I am not a theologian” many times in his letters. In the strict “academic” or “scholarly” sense, indeed he was not. Yet in another broader... More > sense, he certainly was one. In any event, he wrote exquisitely on theology. His personal letters were "popular" and non-technical. In effect, here he becomes a catechist and apologist. Scholars write to and for other scholars, whereas Catholic catechists, apologists, and evangelists try to reach the masses (and Catholics) with the good news of the glorious fullness of the Catholic Christian faith. Moreover, in Cardinal Newman's writing we find extraordinary prose: a feast of 19th century eloquent English style; and we encounter a saintly man. My goal is to create almost a “systematic theology” from Cardinal Newman, by use of many topical categories. This volume may be of particular usefulness for possible converts, as well as Catholics seeking to revive an uncertain or tentative personal Catholic faith. There is much precious treasure here.< Less
