Recent years have seen an explosion of interest in and interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. Its authority and stature are routinely invoked by voices from every point on the political spectrum, with frequent references to the Founding Fathers and their true ´´intent.´´ What really was their true intent? As these 12 surprising lectures show, many of those Founding Fathers - including Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry - were highly critical of the new Constitution and staunchly opposed it when it was first put forth for ratification by the states as a replacement for the Articles of Confederation. The debate over the Constitution raged for the better part of two years, and beneath its rhetorical flourishes lay not only the longest and most profound civic argument in our nation´s history, but also a civics lesson that deserves to endure for all time. It was an argument that would result not only in the ratification of the Constitution, but also in what that Constitution would become. Professor Pangle takes you into this debate. You´ll see which Founders opposed the new Constitution, which Founders led the battle for it, and how both sides helped define the result. In an era when contemporary arguments on the national stage so often mirror the same conflicts debated by the Founders, our own reenactment of that original debate can enrich our ability to be active and participating citizens. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Professor Thomas L. Pangle. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tcco/000112de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Keep Christianity Strange As the culture changes all around us, it is no longer possible to pretend that we are a moral majority. That may be bad news for America, but it can be good news for the church. What´s needed now, in shifting times, is neither a doubling down on the status quo nor a pullback into isolation. Instead we need a church that speaks to social and political issues with a bigger vision in mind: that of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As Christianity seems increasingly strange and even subversive to our culture, we have the opportunity to reclaim the freakishness of the Gospel, which is what gives it its power in the first place. We seek the kingdom of God before everything else. We connect that kingdom agenda to the culture around us, both by speaking it to the world and by showing it in our churches. As we do so, we remember our mission to oppose demons, not to demonize opponents. As we advocate for human dignity, for religious liberty, for family stability, let´s do so as those with a prophetic word that turns everything upside down. The signs of the times tell us we are in for days our parents and grandparents never knew. But that´s no call for panic or surrender or outrage. Jesus is alive. Let´s act like it. Let´s follow him onward to the future. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George W. Sarris. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hove/001509de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

She is a single, twentysomething, gun-loving, Christian, Republican writer and blogger, the daughter of a senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee. He is a married, 40-year-old, gun-fearing, atheist, Democrat comedian, the son of a lesbian former Social Security employee. Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black barely know each other. But they are about to change the way politics is discussed in America. In the summer of 2011, McCain and Black embarked on a balls-out, cross-country tour. Along the way, they spoke to politicians, gun lovers, abortion-rights advocates and opponents, gay parents, flag burners, Muslims, poker players, Tea Partiers, Minutemen, veterans, teen moms, bikers, fast-food workers, and a hooker or two. They toured the White House. They fired semiautomatic weapons. They stopped and ate at every Olive Garden along the way. But mostly they talked to each other about their differences and their similarities. It´s Chelsea Handler meets Hunter S. Thompson in a political cannonball run across America. 1. Language: English.

Twilight of the Republic (eBook, ePUB)
34,95 € *

The uniqueness of America has been alternately celebrated and panned, emphasized and denied, for most of the country´s history -- both by its own people and by visitors and observers from around the world. The idea of ´´American exceptionalism´´ tends to provoke strong feelings, but few are aware of the term´s origins or understand its true meaning. Understanding the roots and consequences of America´s uniqueness requires a thorough look into the nation´s history and Americans´ ideas about themselves.Through a masterful analysis of important texts and key documents, Justin B. Litke investigates the symbols that have defined American identity since the colonial era. From the time of the country´s founding, the people of the United States have viewed themselves as citizens of a nation blessed by God, and they accordingly sought to serve as an example to others. Litke argues that as the republic developed, Americans came to perceive their country as an active ´´redeemer nation,´´ responsible for liberating the world from its failings. He introduces and contextualizes the various historical and academic claims about American exceptionalism and offers an original approach to understanding this phenomenon.Today, American historians and politicians still debate the meaning of exceptionalism. Advocates of exceptionalism are often perceived by their opponents as unrealistically patriotic, and Litke´s historically and theoretically rich inquiry attempts to reconcile these political and cultural tensions. Republicans of every age have recognized that a people cut off from their history will not long persist in self-government. Twilight of the Republic aims to reinvigorate the tradition that once caused people the world over to envy the American political order.
