Lessons from Aquinas: A Resolution of the Problem of Faith and Reason
By author: Creighton Rosental
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H829
ISBN: 9780881462531
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $45.00
Thomas Aquinas has long been understood to have reconciled faith and reason. Typically, he is understood as having provided justification for faith by means of proof. In this book, Rosental argues that Aquinas's account of faith is not simply an account of justified belief, at least as it is typically considered in contemporary philosophy. This book is an erudite and accessible reading of this most fundamental issue in Thomistic studies.

Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
In this volume of essays, based on the 2019 A.V.

Contributors include Peter Ahrensdorf, Jennifer Baker, Khalil Habib, Kevin Honeycutt, Alex Priou, Richard Ruderman, Nicholas D. Smith, Devin Stauffer, Mary Townsend, Jeffrey Dirk Wilson, and Catherine Zuckert.

Listening for God: Malamud, O’Connor, Updike, & Morrison
By author: Peter C. Brown
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H999
ISBN: 9780881467680
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
We live in a secular age, where the world and its ways seem to indicate the absence of God. The testimony of ancient and latter-day prophets requires more faith (or credulity) than most of us can manage. Can we still find spiritual truths that will restore a sense of a higher meaning to our lives? For millennia, people have looked to literature, to scriptures, epics, poems, plays, novels, and films for insights into the human condition. In our increasingly rationalized world, some of these contemporary storytellers--like a Bernard Malamud, Flannery O’Connor, John Updike, or Toni Morrison--stretch their art to find new words for the sacred. Brown invites us to reread them to listen for this elusive transcendence, a sacred mystery that rebukes both the atheist's weak humanism and the believer's naïve supernaturalism.

Mirror's Fathom: A Novel
By author: Sheridan Hough
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H861
ISBN: 9780881464016
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $28.00
Mirror’s Fathom is the story of Tycho Wilhelm Lund—anarchist, pirate, and thief of a legendary mirror. Tycho is also a great-nephew of the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard and is, when the novel begins, a mild-mannered antiques dealer who is asked to assess the value of some furniture at the home of Regine Schlegel, Kierkegaard’s famously jilted former love. Upon his arrival, Tycho—who has no interest in philosophy—finds himself at a meeting of the Kierkegaard Circle, a group faithfully reading aloud Kierkegaard’s works. There he meets, and falls for, Countess Juliana Sophie, herself a passionate follower of Kierkegaard’s thinking and self-appointed mistress of the “School for Selves.”
