What's Wrong?: Applied Ethicists and Their Critics is a thorough and engaging introduction to applied ethics that covers virtually all of the issues in the field. Featuring more than ninety-five articles, it addresses standard topics--such as abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, world hunger, and animal rights--and also delves into cutting-edge areas like cloning, racial profiling, same-sex marriage, prostitution, and slave reparations. The volume includes seminal essays by prominent philosophers (Robert Nozick, James Rachels, Peter Singer, and Judith Jarvis Thomson) alongside work by newer voices in the field.
Employing a unique approach to teaching argumentation, editors David Boonin and Graham Oddie unify the wealth of material presented in this collection. Each chapter opens with a featured article that takes a strong stand on a particular issue; the essays that immediately follow offer objections and critical responses to the arguments put forth in the featured selection. This format helps students learn how to better engage in debates because it illustrates how philosophers argue with each other. In addition, a general introduction describes strategies for understanding and evaluating the different types of arguments contained in the readings, while detailed chapter introductions enable students to see precisely how the arguments presented in the various writings are related to one another. Discussion questions and suggestions for further reading are included for each chapter. Ideal for courses in introduction to ethics and applied ethics/contemporary moral problems, What's Wrong? can also be used in critical thinking courses that emphasize philosophical argumentation.

When God is Silent (USED)

$3.99
More Info
"Reading of God's silence in the Bible gives me courage to explore the practice of restraint in preaching--not as a deliberate withholding of God's word nor, I hope, as a rationale for my own reticence, but as a sober reaching for more reverence in the act of public speaking about God." In these 1997 Lyman Beecher Lectures in Preaching delivered at Yale Divinity School, Barbara Brown Taylor focuses on the task of those who preach and those who hear sermons in a world where people thirst for a word from God. How may we approach this seemingly silent God with due respect, proclaiming the Word without violating the silence, by speaking with restraint? Her first chapter examines the late twentieth-century language with which we talk about God in theology and speak to God in prayer. The second chapter addresses the question of God's communication in Scripture and how the "voice of God" was heard less and less in the land as the centuries progressed. Finally, Taylor explores what the silence of God means for Christians and how we may exercise "homiletical restraint" in speaking of the divine.

Those extraordinary little events in your life happen for a reason.
A coincidence-sometimes a silly little thing-changes the course of your day . . .
or even your life. Is it chance, or is God communicating with you?

When God Winks at You is packed with true stories demonstrating that God does communicate with us, making incredible things happen in our lives every single day. As you read the riveting accounts of everyday and famous people-including Tim Conway, Rudolph Giuliani, Billy Graham, and Don Knotts-you will begin to recognize the godwinks in your own life, both past and present. Through these tangible signposts from God, we receive personalized messages that reassure us, stop us from worrying, chart our path in life, and help us keep the faith.

When God winks, He is reaffirming that there is absolutely nothing about us that He does not know-our every hurt, our every desire.
And that to me is very comforting

Who Is My Neighbor? An Extensive Commentary on the Good Samaritan Parable

$13.95
More Info

One of the most profoundly influential and immortal parables ever recounted by the Savior is the parable of the Good Samaritan. In this story, the Messiah expounds upon what constitutes the nature of true religion, which consists in the willful extension of charity and mercy, in the performance of acts of love and in bringing the greatest good to others. The parable also proves that the performance of deeds of righteousness very often comes from the unlikeliest of characters, in strange, unexpected places to provide for us in ways that utterly transcend our narrow definitions or limited expectations. And no more than we should not discount any human being as unworthy of our services should we deny or underestimate that any other has the capacity to initiate or reciprocate such graces.
Though rich in interest as a story in itself, especially as an embodiment of profoundly precious lessons on the nature of love in action and at face value is both dramatic and practical in the obvious application of its meaning, there is a time honored interpretation taught by the ancient assembly and preserved throughout the Middle Ages that brilliantly encapsulates the plan of salvation in such a way that has lost its metaphorical meaning in modernity. The parable of the Good Samaritan testifies of the plan of salvation, the Savior's atoning love and our journey toward eternal life. It can not only be read as a story of a man who went down from Jerusalem to Jericho but also about all who come down from the heavenly presence of the Father to live on earth. The story has a universal application for all of humanity that is as relevant and necessary today as it was when it was first declared. This meaning becomes more visible as it was formerly taught and understood by the early Church fathers, an interpretation the author resurrects and elucidates upon.

Why Does the World Exist? An Existential Detective Story (USED)

$7.99
More Info
Whether framed philosophically as "Why is there a world rather than nothing at all?" or more colloquially as "But, Mommy, who made God?" the metaphysical mystery about how we came into existence remains the most fractious and fascinating question of all time. Following in the footsteps of Christopher Hitchens, Roger Penrose, and even Stephen Hawking, Jim Holt emerges with an engrossing narrative that traces our latest efforts to grasp the origins of the universe. As he takes on the role of cosmological detective, the brilliant yet slyly humorous Holt contends that we might have been too narrow in limiting our suspects to God vs. the Big Bang. Whether interviewing a cranky Oxford philosopher, a Physics Nobel Laureate, or a French Buddhist monk, Holt pursues unexplored and often bizarre angles to this cosmic puzzle. The result is a brilliant synthesis of cosmology, mathematics, and physics--one that propels his own work to the level of philosophy itself.

Can relligion and politics mix? Many voices reply, "No way!" Yet in this provocative and timely book, Brendan Sweetman argues against this charge and the various sophisticated arguments that support it. As we witness the clash of religious and secular worldviews he claims that our pluralistic democratic society will be best served when the faith elements of secularism are acknowledged and the rational elements of religious arguments are allowed to inform the momentous debates taking place in the public square. In fact, Sweetman contends that "politics needs religion if it is to be truly democratic, concerned with fairness among worldviews, equality and a vigorous public discussion."

Written by the Director of the Lesbian and Gay Ministry of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, this extraordinary new book cuts through the controversy and argument about homosexuality to present a compassionate explanation of official Church teaching. Everyone talks about homosexuality yet most Catholics, even pastors, are ignorant of the Church's newest, positive thoughts on the issue. This book presents these teachings and the sound pastoral practices that arise from them. Above all, the book emphasizes the Church's position that personhood is made up of so much more than one's sexual orientation and that God and grace are found in every person's story -- without exception.

Working With Angels (USED)

$3.99
More Info
Angels play a far more important role in our lives than we realize. Our minds and emotions are shaped out of angelic substance. Our greatest music, art work, and literature has its roots in angelic inspiration. Angelic troops help us to give birth -- and to heal the sick. And yet, as a race, we remain almost totally ignorant of these divine beings, their purpose, and their role.

This is due to our own blindness. In this short book, authors Robert R. Leichtman, M.D. and Carl Japikse describe the truth about angels -- and how humans can learn to work with them. The authors shatter a lot of misconceptions about angels and their interactions with humans, then go on to outline the real basis for angelic-human interaction.

After the Bible, YOUCAT will likely become the go-to place for young people to learn the truth about the Catholic faith. Pope Benedict XVI wrote the foreword; Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, the editor of YOUCAT and the Archbishop of Vienna, Austria, wrote the afterword.
