Rather than another set of obligations to fulfill, your faith can be a powerful ally in creating a happier, healthier home.

In the ancient conversation between Western philosophy and Christian theology, powerful contemporary voices are arguing for monologue rather than dialogue. Instead of these two disciplines learning from and mutually informing each other, both philosophers and theologians are increasingly disconnected from, and thus unable to hear, what the other is saying, especially in Anglo-American scholarship. Some Christian philosophers are now found claiming methodological authority over doctrine, while some Christian theologians even deny that philosophy has its own integrity as a separate discipline. Against these trends, David Brown has argued over the past thirty years that philosophy and theology are both necessary in order to grapple with the reality of divine mystery and Christian faith. Neither discipline can be reduced to the other, and each has its own contribution to make for a full understanding of what Brown describes as 'a single vision' of God. In this volume, Brown addresses some key topics in philosophical theology, including the created order, experience and revelation, incarnation and redemption, and heaven and our communal destiny. Combining analytic clarity, doctrinal substance, and historical depth, this volume exemplifies Brown's project of truly integrating philosophy and theology. It thus provides an ideal introduction to this vital conversation for undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as a connected argument of interest to specialists in both disciplines.
This book is for anyone who is or has been interested in the commitment of foster parenting. I would first like to commend you on your passion to mold the life of a young person who may have not been dealt a fair hand. Whether you are a long-time foster parent with decades of experience under your belt, or are just curious about the possibility of taking on this internally rewarding cause, we are all connected in the pursuit of something far greater than ourselves. Your interest in this type of work reveals that you already have the first and greatest key to your success: compassion. This choice will cause you to live outside of your own little world and you will forever be changed. If you love what you're doing and you allow that same love to flood the lives of those who have never experienced it, you will never be forgotten. Your love will live forever; this I guarantee you.What many don't know is that my mother was a flight risk foster child who bounced around from home to home. She passed through and went AWOL from where I have worked for the past five years. This closeness to the heart is what ultimately inspired me to develop my passion and choose this work. My passion is now a testament to the redeeming power of a life forever changed by Mr. Hackett and foster parents like you. My mother never had a birthday or knew a home she didn't run from until you bridged the gap and made her feel loved. Your dedication reached further into generations than you ever could have imagined. It's time your commitment is recognized as I eagerly await the days grown children and their children return to me on solid ground. It is my intent and life's purpose to pass on what has and continues to work for me. I seek to help others achieve success to an even greater degree than myself. I owe it to you real life super-heroes to let this out and be 100% authentic in the struggles. Lastly, this is for the countless youth who have changed my life for the better. To those who revealed in me things I didn't know about myself. To those who created growth and love inside my heart that will never pass away. I will tell them what it is your fellow brothers and sisters have cried out in need for. I will reveal to them the treasure in you. For all of this, I am eternally grateful.
