In Sit Down and Shut Up, Brad Warner tackles one of the great works of Zen literature, the Shobogenzo by 13th century Zen master Dogen. Illuminating Dogen's enigmatic teachings in plain language, Warner intertwines sharp philosophical musings on sex, evil, anger, meditation, enlightenment, death, God, sin, and happiness with an exploration of the power and pain of the punk rock ethos.

In Reasons to Believe, Scott Hahn, a convert to Catholicism, explains the "how and why" of the Catholic faith - drawing from Scripture, his own struggles, and those of other converts, as well as from everyday life and even natural science. Hahn shows that reason and revelation, as well as nature and the supernatural, are not opposed to one another; rather, they offer complementary evidence that God exists. He is someone, and He has a personality, a personal style, that is discernable and knowable.

Enjoyed this book immensely. Learned great insights into the Catholic Faith from a great professor. Dr. Hahn is simply brilliant. This audiobook was well read and clear to hear.
I recommend it to anyone learning about the faith.

How should parents raise children, and how should schools educate children? Why are we attracted to things that are forbidden? What is time? How can we understand God, or the nature of evil? What is true friendship? To answer these questions, Professors Cook and Herzman look to the Confessions of St. Augustine of Hippo.

I've recently become a fan of Professor Cook & Herzman's. I must say that every lecture they bring out is very thoughtful, inspiring, insightful.

This one in particular is most inspiring. St. Augustine's thought was so honest and rich. And his questions and methods are interesting to think about. Would love to read the Confessions and come back to this lecture.
Highly recommended this lecture.
