BOOK EXCERPT:

World and Word: A Critical Thinking Reader 1st edition, offers a different approach to academic writing. Although it contains many familiar subjects, they have been arranged to tell a slightly different story; the power of language to affect perception. English instructors can use these lessons to help students sharpen essay writing, clarify thought, and receive better grades. More importantly however, these lessons help students become aware of how words create meaning - on the printed page, in the courtroom, on the job, in the video screen, in the classroom, and across the nation - and how sometime meaning is created for them.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This important book proposes a new account of the nature of language, founded upon an original interpretation of Wittgenstein. The authors deny the existence of a direct referential relationship between words and things. Rather, the link between language and world is a two-stage one, in which meaning is used and in which a natural language should be understood as fundamentally a collection of socially devised and maintained practices. Arguing against the philosophical mainstream descending from Frege and Russell to Quine, Davidson, Dummett, McDowell, Evans, Putnam, Kripke and others, the authors demonstrate that discarding the notion of reference does not entail relativism or semantic nihilism. A provocative re-examination of the interrelations of language and social practice, this book will interest not only philosophers of language but also linguists, psycholinguists, students of communication and all those concerned with the nature and acquisition of human linguistic capacities.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Evangelical Christianity is one of the most formative and least acknowledged movements in Australian history. This book restores evangelicals to their place as a dynamic element in the dialogue between Christianity and general Australian society.Evangelicalism focuses on the Gospel, the God-given means not only of the salvation of individual souls, but also of the renovation of society and culture. In this novel and well-sustained study, Stuart Piggin argues that evangelicalism is strongest when it synthesises Biblical orthodoxy withspiritual passion and human compassion. When this synthesis was achieved, it resulted in spiritual vitality and the strengthening of Australian nationhood.Piggin draws on a wealth of personal accounts and out-of-the-way sources to shed light on matters as disparate as the character of the Reverend Samuel Marsden, the 'sinless perfection' movement among students at the University of Sydney in the 1930s, the Billy Graham Crusades, and the Anglicandebate on the ordination of women.By analysing the experience and contribution of the evangelical movement, this book challenges readers to rethink their national history.

BOOK EXCERPT:

All too often Scripture is read only to find answers to lifes perplexing questions, to prove a theological point, or to formulate doctrine. But William Brown argues that if read properly, what the Bible does most fundamentally is arouse a sacred sense of life-transforming wonder. In this book Brown helps readers develop an orientation toward the biblical text that embraces wonder. He explores reading strategies and offers fresh readings of seventeen Old and New Testament passages, identifying what he finds most central and evocative in the unfolding biblical drama. The Bible invites its readers to linger in wide-eyed wonder, Brown says -- and hisSacred Sense shows readers how to do just that.

This book explores the impact of biblical reading practices on scientific thought in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth centuries. It addresses the idea that the natural philosophers of the era forged their new sciences despite, rather than because of, the pervasive bible-centeredness of early modern thought.
