MERE THEOLOGY A Guide to the Thought of C. S. Lewis
Vaus, Will
ISBN: 1844740269
Intervarsity Press  2004 First Edition
 Paperback A fine copy, What did C. S. Lewis believe about God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, heaven, hell, creation, the fall, the forgiveness of sins, marriage and divorce, war and peace, the church and sacraments, masculinity and femininity? Lewis was not a professional theologian, but anyone who has read his writings - whether fiction or nonfiction, essays or correspondence - knows that profoundly Christian convictions permeate them all. The more one reads, the more it becomes clear that Lewis could write with clarity and simplicity while preserving theological accuracy because he was well informed and thoroughly grounded in the Christian faith. Will Vaus has masterfully brought together Lewis's thought from throughout his voluminous writings to provide us a full-orbed look into his beliefs on twenty-five Christian themes. This book gives us not only a comprehensive view of Lewis's theological convictions but also guidance and encouragement for our own spiritual journeys towards the God whom Lewis found so real, personal and present. ; 230 x 150mm; 266 pages

A Nietzsche Reader
Hollingdale, RJ (& Nietzsche)
Penguin  1977 
 Paperback Less than 500g, 286pp The literary career of Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) spanned less than twenty years, but no area of intellectual inquiry was left untouched by his iconoclastic genius. The philosopher who announced the death of God in The Gay Science (1882) and went on to challenge the Christian code of morality in Beyond Good and Evil (1886), grappled with the fundamental issues of the human condition in his own intense autobiography, Ecce Homo (1888). Most notorious of all, perhaps, his idea of the triumphantly transgressive übermann ('superman') is developed in the extreme, yet poetic words of Thus Spake Zarathustra (1883-92). Whether addressing conventional Western philosophy or breaking new ground, Nietzsche vastly extended the boundaries of nineteenth-century thought. review says >>> Nietzsche yells out that God is dead and he’s glad for that. Christianity shuts us down, tells us we are bad and tells us how to be good. Christianity is his primary target, but he’s also against our tribal life that creates conformity (the herd mentality). Philosophers are prime targets as well. Plato, Kant and others insist on a universality that buries the individual. The will-to-power is about the will-to-live, to seek what we need and to defend against what we don’t need. Collectively, life is “appropriation” and “self-preservation.” There is nothing wrong with animal instincts he says, but there is everything wrong with religious, social, and ethical rules that tell us that we are bad beings. Faults? crease on cover, maybe it was the prev owner's repression being expressed. . ??  Good/None issued

PERSIMMON WIND A Martial Artist’s Journey in Japan
Lowry, Dave
ISBN: 0804831424
Charles E. Tuttle Co. Boston 1998 First Edition
 Paperback In 1968, Dave Lowry embarked on an unusual journey, apprenticing himself to a master swordsman of the ancient Shinkage-ryu. In Lowry's first book, Autumn Lightning, he began his tale of a teenaged Midwestern boy and his Japanese sensei. His account of the struggle to learn the art of swordsmanship and to understand the unique culture that engendered it continues in Persimmon Wind. When his teacher returned home to Japan, Lowry remained in the U.S.; more than a decade later, he undertook a long-postponed pilgrimage to Japan. Persimmon Wind is the story of his reunion with his teacher and his exploration of the sites and stories that are at the heart of the Shinkage-ryu.; xii, 273 pages Fine

THE GOD DELUSION
Dawkins, Richard
ISBN: 9780593058251
Bantam Press  2006 
 Paperback While Europe is becoming increasingly secularized, the rise of religious fundamentalism, whether in the Middle East or Middle America, is dramatically and dangerously dividing opinion around the world. In America, and elsewhere, a vigorous dispute between 'intelligent design' and Darwinism is seriously undermining and restricting the teaching of science. In many countries religious dogma from medieval times still serves to abuse basic human rights such as women's and gay rights. And all from a belief in a God whose existence lacks evidence of any kind. Dawkins attacks God in all his forms. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry and abuses children.
