Book Description

Sky Child, like the other books of the "At Your Own Risk Series" contains 10 insightful essays. In this book they cover topics ranging from morality to the effects of metaphors on our lives to why America is not a Christian nation. From the table of contents:

1. Sky Child - The author's experience as a Catholic child is used to show why the early teaching of moral concepts can harm children.

2. Radical Welfare Reform - A truly new and seemingly workable plan for taking care of everyone who needs help, at a much lower cost.

3. No Respect for the Law - The title is what Gillman feels, advocates, and explains.

4. The Metaphorical Life - The power we have to change our lives through the use of metaphors.

5. Throw Away the Key? - A clear and concise argument against mandatory sentencing.

6. America the Anti-Christian Nation - Quotes from the founders of the United States are the basis for this call for secular government.

7. The Price of Money - A reflective look at the ways we buy money, and whether we pay too much.

8. Taxing Fairly - A plan is laid out for fair and sufficient taxation.

9. On the Non-Duty of Civil Disobedience - While he has no respect for the law, Gillman also does not believe there is a duty to sacrifice oneself fighting it.

10. What Is Poverty? - A serious question and three serious answers.

Sky Child (23,700 words) is part of the "At Your Own Risk Series" by Steve Gillman. The essays in these books are meant to suggest new ideas, open minds, occasionally entertain, and above all to encourage independent thought.
