Programmed by God or Free to Choose Book Excerpt:

Are we in fact more than just inert clay in the divine Potter's hands? This book seeks to prove conclusively from Scripture that mankind's freedom to seek God was not retracted at the fall, and that all humanity's sins were borne on the cross by the Lord Jesus Christ. The five points of Calvinism under scrutiny, often known by their acronym, TULIP, are a rŽsumŽ of doctrines formulated at the Council of Dort in 1619. This council maintained that the fall of Adam resulted in the inability of man to seek, or even to desire to seek, God. The Council of Dort declared that only those who have received prior regenerating grace are in fact capable of seeking Him. As you read this book, you will see that God has sovereignly decided to preserve genuine human freedom of choice, and that this brings Him glory and delight. You will also see that predestination is not about who is destined to become a Christian, but about whom a Christian is destined to become.

Summary of Milton Friedman Rose Friedman s Free to Choose Book Excerpt:

Buy now to get the main key ideas from Milton Friedman & Rose Friedman's Free to Choose Ever since the Great Depression, many Americans have wanted the government to be more involved in the economy. The result has been growing governmental control over matters that should be left for the free market to handle, according to Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman and his wife, Rose Friedman, a fellow economist. In Free to Choose (1980), the Friedmans discuss the dangers of the increasing power of government in America across multiple topics including inflation, education, equal opportunity, welfare, consumer protection, and labor unions. In every case, they assert that Americans should put their faith in the free market’s power to maintain the people’s sovereignty.

Freedom to Choose Book Excerpt:

"Freedom of Information in a Post 9-11 World" is, to date, the first international scholarly examination of the impact of the terrorist attack on the United States in terms of how it may alter academic and corporate research, as well as the sharing of information generated by that research, by international colleagues in technological fields. The collection of essays brings together a widely varied panel of communications experts from different backgrounds and cultures to focus their expertise on the ramifications of this world-changing event. Drawing upon the related but separate disciplines of law, interpersonal communication, semiotics, rhetoric, management, information sciences, and education, the collection adds new insight to the potential future challenges high-tech professionals and academics will face in a global community that now seems much less communal than it did prior to September 11, 2001.In "Freedom to Choose: How to Make End-of-Life Decisions on Your Own Terms", young persons, baby boomers, and "senior citizens" alike will find the information they need to make intelligent, informed, and well-planned decisions about end-of-life care, and to clearly state their wishes based on personal, cultural, religious, and family values. In direct and simple language, Dr. Burnell describes how to prepare for a smooth transition to end-of-life care and what to do to prevent family conflicts, overcome death fears and anxiety, and achieve peace of mind for our loved ones and ourselves.The book gives practical advice on how to make decisions about end-of-life care and how to prepare a living will and durable power of attorney for health care. Dr. Burnell provides guidelines at the end of each chapter on what to consider before preparing these important documents: how to preserve one's rights as a patient; how to choose the right doctor; the best place to be when critically ill; the laws governing advance directives; and the best alternatives for end-of-life care, such as good pain control and assisted dying (where this is legal). "Freedom to Choose" provides a user-friendly approach to facing these difficult decisions. It includes extensive lists of resources and organizations, and a glossary necessary for understanding the issues at hand. As this book makes clear, preparing an advance directive and knowing all the available options at the end of life are the most important steps for achieving peace of mind.The primary audience is anyone, young or old, who needs to prepare a set of advance directives: healthy people, for themselves or their loved ones who are seriously ill or on life support, and people with a terminal illness. The secondary audience is health professionals who deal with people in end-of-life care or with decision-makers on end-of-life issues: primary care physicians; nurses; geriatricians; psychiatrists; hospice doctors, nurses, and volunteer staff; caregivers for the seriously ill; oncologists; interns and residents; counselors; family therapists; psychologists; social workers who work with the dying and bereaved; attorneys; thanatologists; estate planning advisors; senior citizen center staff; college teachers in death and dying courses; professionals taking courses in psychology, gerontology, thanatology, nursing, and social work.

Free To Say No Book Excerpt:

For centuries Augustine's theory of free will has been used to explain why God is not the author of evil and humans are morally responsible for sin. Yet, when he embraced the doctrines of unconditional election and operative grace, Augustine began modifying his theory of free will. His final works claim his evolved notion of free will remained consistent with his early view, but this claim has provoked significant debate. Some scholars take him at his word, interpreting his teachings on free will in light of his later predestination teachings. Others reject his claim of continuity and warn of great inconsistencies between his early and later works. Few have undertaken a thorough study of Augustine's works to compare his early notion of free will with hislater theory of predestination. Free To Say No? is a detailed study of Augustine's work that presents clear evidence in Augustine's own words for a significant discontinuity between his early and later theories - especially the disappearance of the will's freedom to say

The Virtues of Freedom Book Excerpt:

The essays collected in this volume by Paul Guyer, one of the world's foremost Kant scholars, explore Kant's attempt to develop a morality grounded on the intrinsic and unconditional value of the human freedom to set our own ends. When regulated by the principle that the freedom of all is equally valuable, the freedom to set our own ends -- what Kant calls "humanity" - becomes what he calls autonomy. These essays explore Kant's strategies for establishing the premise that freedom is the inner worth of the world or the essential end of humankind, as he says, and for deriving the specific duties that fundamental principle of morality generates in the empirical circumstances of human existence. The Virtues of Freedom further investigates Kant's attempts to prove that we are always free to live up to this moral ideal, that is, that we have free will no matter what, as well as his more successful explorations of the ways in which our natural tendencies to be moral -- dispositions to the feeling of respect and more specific feelings such as love and self-esteem -- can and must be cultivated and educated. Guyer finally examines the various models of human community that Kant develops from his premise that our associations must be based on the value of freedom for all. The contrasts but also similarities of Kant's moral philosophy to that of David Hume but many of his other predecessors and contemporaries, such as Stoics and Epicureans, Pufendorf and Wolff, Hutcheson, Kames, and Smith, are also explored.

Free to be Responsible Book Excerpt:

By choosing from the countless options open to us--in the social and physical environments, in the psychological and spiritual forces working around and in us--we exercise our responsibility as individuals. To be whole and healthy persons within society we need to put our heart and soul into expressing this unique opportunity to respond in appropriate and creative ways. We exercise such responsibility armed, yet made vulnerable, by the contradictory characteristics and impulses within us: creative, yet confined by limiting circumstances; reaching for, yet withdrawing from the spiritual richness available to us; aware of our abilities, yet conflicted in what we want and what we will do.

Free to Leave Free to Stay Book Excerpt:

Our known world, the world of twenty-first century Americans, is shaped and defined by consumer choice. The premise of consumer choice is that somewhere the perfect fit between product and purchaser exists. In the books on changing traditions the consumerist tone prevails--fundamentalists looking for an even more literal interpretation of Scripture, Protestants going home to Rome, feminists heading to the womyncentric sacred grove, conservatives fleeing inclusive rites, Catholics embracing the independent seeker church. But the consumerist impulse masks the kind of prayer and discernment necessary for living in Christian community and for following God. Twenty-first century Christians do make choices, but the hope is that they do so because they follow God. How then is one to answer the question of whether to stay or leave? Through meditating on the fruits of the Spirit that Paul addressed to the church at Galatia, a community that had several of its members wondering whether to stay or leave, Bennett and Nussbaum offer sage reflections about what it means to be led into and out of Christian communions.

Real Materialism draws together papers written over twenty years by Galen Strawson in philosophy of mind and metaphysics. Strawson focuses on five main areas of enquiry: [1] the nature of the physical, consciousness, the 'mind-body problem', and the prospects for panpsychism; [2] the self, the subject of experience, self-consciousness, and the 'narrative' self; [3] free will and moral responsibility; [4] the nature of thought and intentionality and their connection with consciousness; [5] the problem of causation with particular reference to the philosophy of David Hume.

Freedom of Choice Book Excerpt:

Inserting much-needed historical context into the voucher debates, Freedom of Choice: Vouchers in American Education treats school vouchers as a series of social movements set within the context of evolving American conservatism. The study ranges from the use of tuition grants in the 1950s and early 1960s in the interest of fostering segregation to the wider acceptance of vouchers in the 1990s as a means of counteracting real and perceived shortcomings of urban public schools. The rise of school vouchers, author Jim Carl suggests, is best explained as a mechanism championed by four distinct groups—white supremacists in the South, supporters of parochial school in the North, minority advocates of community schools in the nation's big cities, and political conservatives of both major parties. Though freedom was the rallying cry, this book shows that voucher supporters had more specific goals: continued racial segregation of public education, tax support for parochial schools, aid to urban community schools, and opening up the public school sector to educational entrepreneurs.

Free to Run the Race Book Excerpt:

Free to Run the Race describes the living out of our life in Christ (Hebrews 12:1). It speaks of running "with endurance the race that is set before us." This can be done by fixing our "eyes on Jesus." "Undoing the Burden of Parental Disregard," speaks to a specific encumbrance that weighs the runner down making it harder to keep focus and finish the race. The burden is called "parental disregard." It is not being allowed to "be oneself," to pursue one's inner direction, or natural proclivity in one's life. It is the experience of developmental woundedness that says being oneself in temperament, aptitudes, natural talents, and the expressing of this is prohibited. Prov 22:6 says, "train up a child according to his own way." The burden of parental disregard is the emotional pain in living out an identity that is not based on any expression of one's natural "way(s)" or bent(s). This makes the development of trust in a heavenly Father (parent) difficult. The relieving of this burden takes a ruthlessly honest focus on this woundedness and its working out its implications honestly that allows a more truthful understanding of God's love for our lives.
