On November 22, 1963, three great men died within a few hours of each other: C. S. Lewis, John F. Kennedy and Aldous Huxley. All three believed, in different ways, that death is not the end of human life. Suppose they were right, and suppose they met after death. How might the conversation go? Peter Kreeft imagines their discussion as a part of The Great Conversation that has been going on for centuries. Does human life have meaning? Is it possible to know about life after death? What if one could prove that Jesus was God? With Kennedy taking the role of a modern humanist, Lewis representing Christian theism and Huxley advocating Eastern pantheism, the dialogue is lively and informative. This new edition of this classic work includes a postscript in which Kreeft describes why and how he wrote what has remained a standard of apologetic literature for a generation. He also adds an outline and index to the book as well as a never-before-published dialog in which he imagines "A World Without an Easter." Now more than ever this book offers an animated interaction that involves not only good thinking but good drama.

Acclaimed writer, bestselling author, and founder of Salon magazine, David Talbot has brought us masterful and explosive headline-breaking stories for over 25 years with books like the New York Times bestsellers Brothers, The Devil's Chessboard, and nationally recognized Season of the Witch. Now for the first time, journalist and historian David Talbot turns inward in this intimate journey through the life-changing year following his stroke, a year that turned his life upside down, and ultimately, saved him. In his signature voice and with powerful storytelling, Talbot examines the physical, emotional, and psychological impact his stroke has had on his identity. Along the way Talbot offers readers insider stories on the wild early days of Internet journalism, insights into the new tech culture, the down and dirty of Hollywood, and much more.

It's dark, but I've come to grow fond of the dark. After a century or two you tend to find certain things you can find solace in!

Flouting his pre-ordained path, Kaine refuses to choose between the two and instead vows to rid mankind of any and all supernatural influence. From the years when he was a knight in the Third Crusade all the way to the modern day, Kaine has grown familiar with people trying to kill him. But with his brother, a secret society, and an old friend all hunting him, he finds himself on the run as he tries to chase down answers and protect the innocent. It's all just a normal day when you're stuck Between Heaven and Hell!

This compilation of short stories, exposing the police subculture, dream interpretation and symbolism, will take the reader on a journey into the psychological underpinnings of the human mind. The primordial battle between good and evil continues on a day-to-day basis in the lives of those who are exposed to the various scenarios presented by the author. Sometimes what one imagines is not always what is reality. We all are, at various moments in our lives, on the edge of the abyss, wondering if there is a way out.
While on his deathbed my father revealed to me a long held and very closely guarded secret, the topic of which he had never shared with another person, not even his late wife. I am convinced he became an alcoholic and closet madman due to the subject of that deathbed confession. I only wish he had told me years earlier as it would have allowed me to better understand the greatest villain, yet greatest hero, of my life. As it was, my father, a supremely gifted aviator, lived his life transitioning between the heaven in which he flew and the hell he fostered on Earth with-in his family. I suffered much collateral damage in my personal life due to the legacy of his abuse while also becoming his finest protégé; I too became an aviator. This memoir takes you, in fine detail, into the esoteric world of these two aviators. From flying biplanes, to F-16s, to B-777s they weathered the storms of mother nature as they circumvented the globe in whatever aircraft they were flying at the time. In addition to mother nature's maelstroms, they battled the personal storms of each other, and from with-in, as they navigated through life in an attempt to redefine either themselves or the other. The book's supporting characters are the many other pilots, both friends and colleagues, with whom their lives converged and intertwined on awe-inspiring adventures that showcased the best and the worst that the world has to offer. This is a tale that illuminates the vilest of hearts, the most jubilant of hearts, and in the final resolve how a child helped to bring his father to redemption on the last day of his life; in essence it's a story of never giving up.

Late-medieval man lived between hope and fear. Heaven was his reward if he was devout, but Hell and all its terrors awaited him if he succumbed to the devil's temptations. In his choice of subject matter Bosch was a child of his times. Although vivid descriptions of the hereafter abounded, Bosch's were different--his rich personal vision and powers of imagination made his work as timeless as the heaven and hell he painted. Here, art historian Chris Will provides insight into Bosch's life and ideas.--From publisher description.
