Endless expanses. Interior design, architecture, and spectacular views of sweeping landscapes. Infinite Space showcases James Silverman´s masterful photography of stunning houses. This book is a dazzling compilation of dream houses with a view, photographed by James Silverman on his travels. Whether of a remote mountain cabin in Norway, a sensuous desert oasis in Morocco, or a monolithic concrete home in Switzerland, Silverman´s photographs capture the seemingly uninterrupted flow between interiors and exteriors. The featured architecture is defined by elements that absorb, reflect, or deliberately break with their surroundings. Silverman´s images play with perspective and sight lines. They underline the harmony of perfectly composed juxtapositions of built structures and natural landscapes. Collected here, they also show how ´´infinite space´´ has established itself as a key precept of contemporary architecture around the world.

In this provocative book one of the most brilliant scholars of religion today dismantles distorted religious ´´histories´´ offered up by Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, and other contemporary critics of religion and advocates of atheism. David Bentley Hart provides a bold correction of the New Atheists’s misrepresentations of the Christian past, countering their polemics with a brilliant account of Christianity and its message of human charity as the most revolutionary movement in all of Western history. Hart outlines how Christianity transformed the ancient world in ways we may have forgotten: bringing liberation from fatalism, conferring great dignity on human beings, subverting the cruelest aspects of pagan society, and elevating charity above all virtues. He then argues that what we term the ´´Age of Reason´´ was in fact the beginning of the eclipse of reason’s authority as a cultural value. Hart closes the book in the present, delineating the ominous consequences of the decline of Christendom in a culture that is built upon its moral and spiritual values. 1. Language: English.

In the latest chapter of his best-selling Joshua series, Joseph Girzone offers fresh inspiration in this collection of fifty never-before-published contemporary vignettes that underscore the most important lessons of the gospel. Joseph Girzone´s novels about Joshua, the carpenter who transforms ordinary lives with words of peace and loving actions, have sold more than three million copies and captured the hearts of listeners and readers around the world. In The Parables of Joshua, perhaps his most powerful since since the original Joshua, Girzone distills the essence of Christian teaching in entertaining and inspiring ´´bite-sized´´ tales set against the background of current society. For some today, the parables of the New Testament are quaint, old-fashioned stories, with little relevance to everyday life in the twenty-first century. As Girzone writes in his Introduction, ´´I have heard the most callous people comment with such great piety on the parables that I could not help but wonder if we haven´t made parables pleasant-sounding fables about human situations long past, but with no present-day meaning.´´ In order to recapture their original vitality, Girzone revives the timeless messages behind the original parables by ´´dressing them in modern clothes,´´ presenting them through Joshua in a conversational style that will resonate with a modern audience. 1.
