Download and read online The Grand Design in PDF and EPUB In this illustrated book, Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow present the scientific thinking about mysteries of the universe, in nontechnical language. According to quantum theory, the cosmos does not have just a single existence or history. The authors explain that human beings are the product of quantum fluctuations in the early universe, and show how quantum theory predicts the 'multiverse' - the idea that ours is just one of many universes that appeared spontaneously out of nothing, each with different laws of nature. They conclude with an assessment of M-theory, an explanation of the laws governing the universe.

Download and read online The Grand Design in PDF and EPUB Despite the abundance of books on the Civil War, not one has focused exclusively on what was in fact the determining factor in the outcome of the conflict: differences in Union and Southern strategy. In The Grand Design, Donald Stoker provides for the first time a comprehensive and often surprising account of strategy as it evolved between Fort Sumter and Appomattox. Reminding us that strategy is different from tactics (battlefield deployments) and operations (campaigns conducted in pursuit of a strategy), Stoker examines how Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis identified their political goals and worked with their generals to craft the military means to achieve them--or how they often failed to do so. Stoker shows that Davis, despite a West Point education and experience as Secretary of War, ultimately failed as a strategist by losing control of the political side of the war. Lincoln, in contrast, evolved a clear strategic vision, but he failed for years to make his generals implement it. And while Robert E. Lee was unerring in his ability to determine the Union's strategic heart--its center of gravity--he proved mistaken in his assessment of how to destroy it. Historians have often argued that the North's advantages in population and industry ensured certain victory. In The Grand Design, Stoker reasserts the centrality of the overarching plan on each side, arguing convincingly that it was strategy that determined the result of America's great national conflict.

An infamous warrior is once again caught between two irrexixtible forces, and his choice may change the world... Prince Richius Vantran, the Jackal of Nar, has fled into exile. Meanwhile, Nar has exploded in civil war. The conflict is being waged between the religious fanatics of Bishop Herrith, who follow the Light of God, and the ruthless followers of Count Biagio and his Black Renaissance. As the terrifying slaughter mounts, fueled by the development of hideous new war machines, Vantran is offered a chance to ally with a third faction and take his revenge against his ancient enemy Biagio. But Biagio, a master of deception and intrigue, has a grand design to gain total power that involves luring Vantran's new allies into a deadly trap. As for Vantran, Biagio has a special punishment: to strike the warrior-prince's only weakness...Vantran's innocent daughter. And Vantran himself will unwittingly seal the young girl's fate.

Download and read online Grand Design in PDF and EPUB Pieter Coecke van Aelst (1502 – 1550) was renowned throughout Renaissance Europe as a draftsman, painter, and publisher of architectural treatises. The magnificent tapestries he designed were acquired by the wealthiest clients of the day, up to and including rulers such as Emperor Charles V, King Francis I of France, King Henry VIII of England, and Grand Duke Cosimo I de’ Medici of Tuscany. At the same time, Coecke was remarkable not only for the complexity and unparalleled quality of his tapestries, but also for his fluency in various media: this lavishly illustrated volume examines the full range of his work, from tapestry and stained-glass window designs to panel paintings, prints, drawings, and architectural treatises. Though only forty-eight when he died, Coecke was one of the greatest Netherlandish artists of the sixteenth century. His paintings and drawings, initially wrought in the style of the Antwerp Mannerists, evolved through his enthusiastic response to Italian Renaissance design, and influenced generations of artists in his wake. This comprehensive study explores Coecke’s stylistic development, as well as his substantial contribution to the body of great Renaissance art in Flanders. Featuring twenty monumental tapestries, along with many of their cartoons and preparatory sketches, plus seven paintings, additional drawings, and printed matter—many of them newly photographed for this volume—Grand Design provides a thorough reappraisal of Coecke’s work, amply justifying the high regard in which Coecke’s work was held and its wide dissemination long after his death.

Download and read online God s Grand Design in PDF and EPUB Jonathan Edwards was a preacher, pastor, revivalist, and theologian. This volume unpacks his magnificent theological vision, which starts with God’s glory and ends with all creation returning to that glory. Sean Michael Lucas has converted his years of teaching on Edwards into this valuable work, which places Edwards’s vision in an accessible, two-part framework. Part one focuses on Edwards’s understanding of redemption history—God’s cosmic, grand work from eternity past to eternity future, where all things are united in Christ. Part two examines Edwards’s perspective on “redemption applied”—how that gracious, divine work unfolds in space and time to personally transform individuals, stirring their affections, illuminating their minds, and moving their wills to form new habits and practices. This overview of Edwards’s theology will prove to be a thought-provoking, encouraging guide to contemporary believers at every stage of their spiritual journey.

Download and read online Understanding the Grand Design in PDF and EPUB Increasingly, scientific discoveries are revealing similarities with spiritual concepts, but the common basis of science and spirituality has so far escaped a logical explanation. This book describes how we can understand this common basis if we do something as simple as change our point of view. After that, it becomes a matter of common sense, a brand new type of common sense that is available to everyone, not just scientists. This new common sense, called "Holistic Logic" produces surprising and convincing results when applied to dimensions that transcend our three dimensional world. Holistic Logic leads to conclusions that agree with the teachings of Christ, Vedic Scripture, and the tenets of Buddhist philosophy. Even those unschooled in science can understand how Holistic Logic holds true for discoveries in Quantum Physics and Einstein's Theory of Relativity. Holistic Logic explains spiritual reality in a rational way, using the laws of multi-dimensional reality, much in the same way we explain physical reality with laws of physics. This may well be the breakthrough that Mankind has been seeking for centuries. Holistic Logic may finally have made the connection between the science of matter and the world of spirit. In the future, this connection may prove to be even more significant than that event some 400 years ago when Humankind first understood that the earth was not the center of the universe. Today, the world is desperate for a change. As humans, we are struggling to cope with the ever increasing problems that we are causing in our eco-systems and in ourselves. We are recklessly depleting our oil reserves, we are destroying the lungs of our planet by cutting down the rainforests, and have set in motion a pattern of global warming that can have disastrous results for us and our children. As individuals, we feel that we are at the mercy of random events. Some of us are maimed or murdered, some of us develop fatal diseases, and many of us know disappointment and guilt. We don't understand the forces that drive events nor the apparent indifference of a God who expects obedience but rains misfortune down upon us. We are powerless in the face of tragedies like that which occurred on 9/11/01 Now we have the tools that will help us to avoid destruction and turn the whole situation around. We have the ability to understand and implement the laws of spiritual reality. We have a method that will help us to understand The Grand Design and to create the kind of world that we want. We have Holistic Logic. This book explains the basics of Holistic Logic, citing 10 "Holon Principles" that, when taken together, comprise the Holistic Logic System. With the aid of clear practical examples and many illustrations, the reader will understand the building blocks of physical and spiritual reality, the mysterious union of the Whole and its Parts.

Download and read online The Chief Culprit in PDF and EPUB “A remarkable book. A delayed bombshell that includes very pertinent new research and discoveries Suvorov has made since 1990. He makes savvy readers of contemporary and World War II history, of a mind to reexamine the Soviet past in terms of what historians call ‘present interest.’ None of the ‘new Russian’ historians can match his masterful sweep of research and analysis.” —ALBERT WEEKS, Professor Emeritus of International Relations, New York University, author of Stalin’s Other War: Soviet Grand Strategy, 1939-1941 In The Chief Culprit, bestselling author Victor Suvorov probes newly released Soviet documents and reevaluates existing historical material to analyze Stalin’s strategic design to conquer Europe and the reasons behind his controversial support for Nazi Germany. A former Soviet army intelligence officer, the author explains that Stalin’s strategy leading up to World War II grew from Lenin’s belief that if World War I did not ignite the worldwide Communist revolution, then a second world war would be necessary. Suvorov debunks the theory that Stalin was duped by Hitler and that the Soviet Union was a victim of Nazi aggression. Instead, he makes the case that Stalin neither feared Hitler nor mistakenly trusted him. He maintains that after Germany occupied Poland, defeated France, and started to prepare for an invasion of Great Britain, Hitler’s intelligence services detected the Soviet Union’s preparations for a major war against Germany. This detection, Suvorov argues, led to Germany’s preemptive war plan and the launch of an invasion of the USSR. Stalin emerges from the pages of this book as a diabolical genius consumed by visions of a worldwide Communist revolution at any cost—a leader who wooed Hitler and Germany in his own effort to conquer the world. In contradicting traditional theories about Soviet planning before the German invasion and in arguing for revised view of Stalin’s real intentions, The Chief Culprit has provoked debate among historians throughout the world.

Download and read online The Grand Design in PDF and EPUB John Dos Passos’s literary response to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal, The Grand Design critiques the gargantuan growth of bureaucracy in Washington during the Great Depression and World War II. The satiric novel conveys the author’s frustration with federal overreach and the hollow rhetoric that sells it to the people. “War is a time of Caesars,” writes Dos Passos as he laments the death of idealistic, intelligent enterprises at the desks of elitist administrators. After witnessing the Spanish Civil War claim so many well-intentioned men, he advises caution for America’s New Dealers: “Some things we have learned, but not enough; there is more to learn. Today we must learn to found again in freedom our republic.”

Download and read online God and Stephen Hawking in PDF and EPUB 'The Grand Design', by eminent scientist Stephen Hawking, is the latest blockbusting contribution to the so-called New Atheist debate, and claims that the laws of physics themselves brought the Universe into being, rather than God. In this swift and forthright reply, John Lennox, Oxford mathematician and author of 'God's Undertaker', exposes the flaws in Hawking's logic. In lively, layman's terms, Lennox guides us through the key points in Hawking's arguments - with clear explanations of the latest scientific and philosophical methods and theories - and demonstrates that far from disproving a Creator God, they make his existence seem all the more probable.
