Exalted

by Geoff Grabowski Christopher Moeller

It is the second Age of Man, the age before the world turned. The Empire of the Dragon-Blooded -- an invincible colossus -- stands astride the ruins of the First Age. For millennia, the scarlet Empress held the world in her steel grip. But the empress is no more, and the Realm spirals toward chaos and civil war. Its enemies descend -- demon princes, deathlords, skin-changing barbarians and the twisted and inscrutable Fair Folk hammer at the gates. In this time of darkness are reborn the solar Exalted, heroes of legend once slain by the Dragon-Blooded. Will these living legends herald the return of the Golden Age. . . or the end of creation? Exalted is the latest hardcover rulebook addition to the World of Darkness -- -- but not the one you think you know. You've never seen or even dreamed of this land before, yet it's hauntingly familiar. Become one of the Exalted, one of the heirs to an Age of Heroes, now cast down and disparaged. Will you rail against the tyranny of the oppressive Realm, seek your destiny,in the dangerous Threshold, or throw in with the bizarre creatures of the wilds? The fate of this new world is in your hands.

An Examination of Sir William Hamilton's Philosophy

by Alan Ryan John Robson John Stuart Mill

Appearing just before his successful parliamentary candidature, the Examination, with its deliberate and explicit onslaught on the intuitionists who were, in Mill's view, allied with anti-progressive political and religious forces, brought his beliefs into the public arena in a new way. Some of those who supported him politically found themselves viciously attacked because they had associated themselves with one who assailed settled religious beliefs. Other religionists who rejected many of Mill's attitudes strong expressed their admiration of the Examination because of its exposure to what they, with him, saw as dangerous theological and moral positions.Alan Ryan's analytical and historial introduction dwells on the most significant philosophical elements in the work, placing them in perspective and showing their relations to other aspects of Mill's thought. The textual introduction, by John M. Robson, examines the treatise in context of Mill's life in the 1860s, outlines its composition, and discusses, among other matters, the importance of the extensive revisions Mill made, mostly in response to critics. These revisions appear in full in the textual apparatus. Also provided are a bibliographical index, which gives a guide to the literature on the subject, and a collation of Mill's quotations, an analytical index, and appendices giving the reading of manuscript fragments and listing textual emendations.

Examined Life

by Astra Taylor

Examined Life boldly takes philosophy out of the dark corners of the academy and into the streets, reminding us that great ideas are born through profound engagement with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, not in isolation from it.A companion to Astra Taylor's documentary film, the book features interviews with eight iconoclastic and influential philosophers, conducted while on the move through places that hold special resonance for them and their ideas. Peter Singer's thoughts on the ethics of consumption are amplified against the backdrop of Fifth Avenue's posh boutiques. Michael Hardt ponders the nature of revolution while surrounded by symbols of wealth and leisure. Judith Butler and a friend stroll through San Francisco's Mission District questioning our culture's fixation on individualism. And while driving through Manhattan, Cornel West - perhaps America's best-known public intellectual - compares philosophy to jazz and blues, reminding us how intense and invigorating the life of the mind can be.Offering exclusive moments with great thinkers in fields ranging from moral philosophy to cultural theory, Examined Life reveals philosophy's power to transform the way we see the world around us and imagine our place within it.

Excavating Jesus

by Jonathan L. Reed John Dominic Crossan

The premier historical Jesus scholar joins a brilliant archaeologist to illuminate the life and teaching of Jesus against the background of his world.

This is the first book that combines the two and it does it in a fresh, accessible way that will interest both biblical scholars and students and also the thousands of lay readers of Biblical Archaeology Review (150,000+ circulation), National Geographic, and other archaeology and ancient history books and magazines. Each chapter of the book focuses on a major modern archaeological or textual discovery and shows how that discovery opens a window onto a major feature of Jesus's life and teachings.

Exceedingly Growing Faith

by Kenneth E. Hagin

This book discusses how faith comes to us, defines what faith is, discusses the three parts of us--body, soul and spirit, believing with the heart, how to train the human spirit, the steps to write our own "ticket" with God, and defines the God-kind of faith. Hebrews 11:6 tells us that it is impossible to please God without faith. That sounds hopeless until we learn that God has told us how to obtain faith by telling us how faith comes--by hearing the word of God. Then Biblical faith is defined. What it means to believe with the heart is discussed. Head knowledge is not what it takes to build faith. We are body, soul and spirit. Each of those elements of our being contact the three realms--the physical realm, the intellectual realm and the spiritual realm. We communicate with God through the spiritual realm. There are rules one can use to educate the spirit to train and develop it. This training builds faith. The faith has to be acted upon. When four steps are operated upon, we can receive something the Bible promises instantaneously, or these steps could take time to develop and lived out as principles that must be put into practice over a period of time. Finally, what it means to have the God-kind of faith as Jesus displayed is defined and discussed.
