I Used To Know That Pb

RRP $13.99

This small but mighty collection will trigger your memory with fun facts you learned in school-from adverbs to the Pythagorean Theorem. Witty, engaging, entertaining-a book you'll pick up again and again.

Here is a light-hearted and informative reminder of the many things we learned at school that have since been lost over time. Author Caroline Taggart discovered two things while researching this book and talking with other people. One, everybody had been to school. And two, they had all forgotten entirely different things. Here, in this handy little book, are the facts that you learned in school but may not remember completely or accurately. Covering subjects such as English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Modern Languages, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, History, Geography, Religion, and Music, it will feature all the most important facts, theories, equations, phrases and rules we were taught all those years ago. You can discover:

Mathematics: How to work out a quadratic equation

History: That the first president to occupy the White House was John Adams in 1800

Geography: The capital of Chile and the modern name of Nyasaland

Religion: The seven deadly sins and the names of the twelve apostles

Literature: Which Shakespearean play The Quality of Mercy Speech appears.

The information will be presented in bite-sized chunks and in a self-motivated way, but it will be accurate and up-to-date. It will touch a chord with anyone old enough to have forgotten half of what they learned at school. Here is a perfect gift for every perennial student.

Legacy Of Hate

RRP $482.99

"Though America had been rightfully portrayed as born of democratic principles, to no less an extent was it born of undemocratic ones. America is thus a living contradiction of many dimensions -- historical, sociological, and psychological -- that have manifested themselves at every level of society -- individual, communal, and natural".So writes Philip Perlmutter, whose Legacy of Hate explores this "living contradiction" by tracing the development of American minority group relations, beginning with the arrival of white Europeans and moving through the eighteenth and industrially expanding nineteenth centuries; the explosion of immigration and its attendant problems in the twentieth century; and a final chapter exploring how prejudice (racial, religious, and ethnic) has been institutionalized in the educational systems and laws.Throughout this provocative book, Perlmutter focuses on where and why various groups encountered prejudice and discrimination and how their experiences have shaped the society,we live in and how we think about one another.

What The Bible Says-and Doesn't Say-about Homosexuality

RRP $13.99

Have you ever wondered what the Bible has to say about homosexuality? A growing number of Christians have come to believe that the Bible does not prohibit or condemn homosexual acts. This book is intended to refute this fundamentally flawed view, and to respond to one of its principal propagators-the Rev. Dr. Mel White. The Rev. Mel White's What the Bible Says-and Doesn't Say-About Homosexuality is a treatise that argues that the Bible, when correctly understood, neither condemns nor prohibits homosexual relationships between loving, committed same-sex partners. The apparent prohibitions of sodomy and other homosexual acts in the Old Testament are intended not as injunctions from God, but as reflections of societal tastes and preferences. Even if such prohibitions were based on Old Testament biblical laws-Dr. White argues-such laws have no application or bearing on contemporary Christians, who fall under the law of grace. Dr. White's treatise employs subtle twists of logic and misunderstandings of fundamental biblical principles in support of its conclusions. His treatise is especially dangerous to readers having shallow biblical knowledge and who may not fully understand the extent and clarity of the Bible's prohibition on homosexual conduct. At last-there is now an answer to Dr. White's treatise. In this volume, John Teller sets forth a systematic reply to each of Dr. White's defenses of homosexuality. John Teller thoroughly replies to, refutes and rebuts each of Dr. White's arguments on a detailed point-by-point basis. The present volume is indispensable to the Christian studying human sexuality in light of biblical principles.
