The Religion Of Man


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Tagore is unequivocal in his faith. He appreciates the intellectual triumphs of science, but he writes as a poet and philosopher. Man must always be a music-maker and dreamer of dreams; he must never lose, in his material quests, his longing for the touch of the divine. The 'Religion of Man' (1931), delivered as the Hibbert Lectures at Oxford in 1930, is an extensive and commanding exposition of Tagore's understanding of the meaning and significance of religion in the cultural history of man. Tagore is unequivocal in his faith. He appreciates the intellectual

The Religion Of Technology


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Arguing against the widely held belief that technology and religion are at war with each other, David F. Noble's groundbreaking book reveals the religious roots and spirit of Western technology. It links the technological enthusiasms of the present day with the ancient and enduring Christian expectation of recovering humankind's lost divinity. Covering a period of a thousand years, Noble traces the evolution of the Western idea of technological development from the ninth century, when the useful arts became connected to the concept of redemption, up to the twentieth, when humans began to exercise God-like knowledge and powers. Noble describes how technological advance accelerated at the very point when it was invested with spiritual significance. By examining the imaginings of monks, explorers, magi, scientists, Freemasons, and engineers, this historical account brings to light an other-worldly inspiration behind the apparently worldly endeavors by which we habitually define Western civilization. Thus we see that Isaac Newton devoted his lifetime to the interpretation of prophecy. Joseph Priestley was the discoverer of oxygen and a founder of Unitarianism. Freemasons were early advocates of industrialization and the fathers of the engineering profession. Wernher von Braun saw spaceflight as a millenarian new beginning for humankind. The narrative moves into our own time through the technological enterprises of the last half of the twentieth century: nuclear weapons, manned space exploration, Artificial Intelligence, and genetic engineering. Here the book suggests that the convergence of technology and religion has outlived its usefulness, that though it once contributed to human well-being, it has now become a threat to our survival. Viewed at the dawn of the new millennium, the technological means upon which we have come to rely for the preservation and enlargement of our lives betray an increasing impatience with life and a disdainful disregard for mortal needs. David F. Noble thus contends that we must collectively strive to disabuse ourselves of the inherited religion of technology and begin rigorously to re-examine our enchantment with unregulated technological advance.

The Religion Of Man Vs The Word Of God


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

God gave us His Word to guide us on how we need to live our lives. The problem is, mankind also has free will, and with it comes an ego. In The Religion of Man vs. the Word of God: How Man Makes God Conform to Man's Image, author D. C. Darr has assembled a collection of topics exposing the arrogance of defining God in man's terms. We, as Christians, have become comfortable allowing our religious messengers, philosophers, and interpreters to form our opinion of who God is and what the Bible tells us. In this dangerous comfort zone, we do not question the opinion of our religious leaders, but instead accept it as fact. Discover with author D. C. Darr the serious offenses people have committed using manmade theologies. Find out how the doctrines of religion have led man to create 38,830 Christian denominations and dozens of Bible interpretations. This controversial exposé points out the consequences of blatantly defying God, intending to give readers a better understanding of, and relationship with, our Father in Heaven.

City Of Man


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

An era has ended. The political expression that most galvanized evangelicals during the past quarter-century, the Religious Right, is fading. What's ahead is unclear. Millions of faith-based voters still exist, and they continue to care deeply about hot-button issues like abortion and gay marriage, but the shape of their future political engagement remains to be formed. Into this uncertainty, former White House insiders Michael Gerson and Peter Wehner seek to call evangelicals toward a new kind of political engagement -- a kind that is better both for the church and the country, a kind that cannot be co-opted by either political party, a kind that avoids the historic mistakes of both the Religious Left and the Religious Right. Incisive, bold, and marked equally by pragmatism and idealism, Gerson and Wehner's new book has the potential to chart a new political future not just for values voters, but for the nation as a whole.
