Answers for Atheists, Agnostics, and Other Thoughtful Skeptics: Dialogs About Christian Faith and Life
Review Date: 7/17/2006
Helpful Score: 1


Honest questions deserve honest answers. Christians and non-Christians struggle with vital questions about God and themselves.

In this unusual book, frank dialogs between a non-Christian and his Christian friend move intriguingly from topic to topic, covering such questions as: Is there a God? How do we know?

Invaluable for both the unbeliever looking for answers and the believer who wants to learn how to better answer friends' questions.

The Articulate Person: A Guide to Everyday Public Speaking
Review Date: 9/11/2008


What do you say when...you're asked to "say a few words"?...you deliver a classroom report?...you have to answer an attack on your favorite ideas?...you want to convince a group of your friends to vote?...you give a demonstration at the YWCA?...you want student governent to fund a careers program?...your boss wants you to present a sales report?...you explain registration procedures to the incoming freshmen?...you introduce the main speaker at Honors Day convocation?

The Articulate Person calls for articulate public speakers: those who can present appropriate, relevant, and clear ideas to their listeners in a direct, open, and convincing manner. It assumes that effective public speaking produces significant changes in audiences and therefore is an important social force. It argues that success in public speaking is achieved through the development of specific skills together with an awareness of the cultural expectations which surround various speaking occasions.

The true story of Varian Fry, a man who smuggled people out of France in WWII.

From the cover:
Varian Fry didn't know any more about being on undercover agent than what he'd seen in the movies. But he was the one man who could get into Vichy France, where thousands of people had fled Hitler's Germany. Unless he could get them out, they'd be trapped - turned back to the concentration camps and death camps.

Born Again may well contain the most candid scenes and reliable conclusions to emerge from Watergate. But it is much more; it is the story of one man's unrelenting search for meaning which led to the surprise plea of guilty and long months in federal prison.
For all those struggling with an inner emptiness in our computer-controlled, coldly impersonal society, Born Again charts the way to a new life and new hope.

Review Date: 7/20/2008


From the back cover:

Almost 2000 years have passed and the desire of Jesus that all should hear the Good News is as strong as ever. In this remarkable book, Oswald J. Smith maintains that the Church which takes this command seriously will experience the blessing of God.

The "Challenge of Missions" will stir you to gain a vision for 'world' evangelization. It will challenge you to give moe to missions than you thought possible. It will set you on a quest to the uttermost parts of the earth until the Gospel has been preached to every creature. And when the Great Commission has been fulfilled...then shall the end come!
