Politics: A Treatise on Government
Politics: A Treatise on Government
Price: $0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A Thorough Look at Government Types & Their People, August 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Five stars because Aristotle informs and challenges me like the brilliant thinker he was. Read this to understand our Founding Fathers thinking when they created our constitution. It also gives a frightening glimpse of where the U.S. is headed. Not a quick read, but a very useful one.


The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates: A Proper Resistance to Tyranny and a Repudiation of Unlimited Obedience to Civil Government

5.0 out of 5 stars Stopping Federal Tyranny, July 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
State and local officials with the backbone to defy and resist tyranny from higher officials. People who will remonstrate then encourage and support them when they take action. This is the hope we have left to avoid a full on tyranny. Good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is the Chief End of Man?, July 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ethics (Kindle Edition)
Aristotle answers this differently than I do. He says Happiness, but as a Christian, I say It is glorifying God and enjoying Him forever. For many in life though, he accurately describes what their end is.

The real value of this is Aristotle's treatises on the following topics:
-- Virtue
-- Friendship
-- Pleasure
-- Happiness

This book can help you understand how to live a life that aims at more than just pleasure. Indeed, he shows how virtues and friends are necessary for a truly happy life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but Predictable in many ways., July 22, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good for a quick read, but you will see much of the action coming from a long way off. It struck me as if the plot was formulaic and the characters were cliche.

Mediocre

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful ... But you will feel like you just left a Neo Darwinism convention, December 16, 2014
This review is from: Mastery (Kindle Edition)
Despite being too long, using the same biographical examples over and over, and preaching Darwinism like a new convert, this book challenged me to consider my God-given Calling; and to get focused on it. It persuasively laid out the necessity of perseverance and hard work to become a master at anything.

It also sought to inspire by reassuring that everyone can be a master if they will follow the "proven" road to mastery. I don't know that he proved his thesis, but it did inspire me to focus and settle in for the long haul.

One thing that I thought was interesting, because the author seemed blind to it, was the contradiction between Darwinism and the idea of purpose, or as he calls it the Life Task of each individual. Really, if life is a product of random, non-intelligent chance, then it can't have an overall purpose. The author assumes both of these contradictory ideas throughout the book without ever even acknowledging the problem. Overall, he spent way too much time telling the "just so" story of Darwinism. It had nothing to do with the subject, but it kept coming up over and over and over and over and over ....

Interesting book, but by the end of it, I wanted it to end.


City of Man: Religion and Politics in a New Era
City of Man: Religion and Politics in a New Era
Price: $9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful Primer for Effective Christian Political Engagement, February 21, 2013
This short book is well reasoned. It does not encourage blind, rabid, angry engagement. Instead the authors want well reasoned engagement that is arrived at through spiritual depth and discernment. They caution against foolishly becoming a useful tool for another's agenda.

The most useful thing I will take away is the grid they provide for considering political positions.
1 Does it encourage order?
2. Does it promote justice?
3. Will it raise the level of virtue?
4. Will it make life better for those it affects?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for Home Finances, December 17, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Quicken has made it much simpler and faster to see where money is being spent. The data entry is limited thanks to the capability to pull directly from accounts such as checking, savings, investments, credit cards, etc... Categorization is easy and flexible. What once was a dreaded chore is now quick and simple. Instead of data entry, we can now see where our money is going and check it against our priorities. Very helpful software.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alarming by Design, December 13, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is meant as a warning to the American people. The principles and ideas that made it possible for us to gain, order, and maintain freedom as a people are slipping into obscurity. Without a return to the "Golden Triangle" of faith, virtue, and freedom, our future as a free people is in doubt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyman's Theology of Work, December 13, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book provides a much needed theology of work. It shows why we work, how we should work, and what the result of our work should be. Instead of the defensive thought of working to get by, or the misplaced thought of working to find meaning, Mr. Keller shows us how working can be an endeavor that makes the world a better place while bringing glory to God.

He does a good job of mixing theology with practice. I plan on using this material to teach my children and my Sunday School class.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wheat: Why You are Fat and Don't Feel Good, October 17, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The author lays out a detailed case that explains how and why wheat either causes or exacerbates the following things:
1.) Obesity
2.) Arthritis
3.) Excessive appetite
4.) Brain "fog"
5.) High cholesterol
6.) Celiacs
7.) Skin problems
etc...

It is certainly a thought provoker and has caused me to examine my diet and think again before I eat wheat (gluten) laden foods. Read it and come to your own conclusion.
