Father Hunger is a thoughtful and timely excursion into our culture of fatherlessness, what Wilson calls “the central malady of our time.” Central because it is the cause of so many of the ills we face - everything from atheism and crime to joyless feminism and paternalistic government expansion - but most important because of the effect it has on families, children, wives, and husbands. Bottom line: when fathers are checked out, left out, or ruled out, it hurts literally everyone.
"Wilson skillfully exposes the need of the Hour for Dads and for the Land at Large."
In the beginning, great power is only great potential... Renowned for both martial and arcane skills, the mighty warcasters of the Iron Kingdoms possess the unique gift of bonding with and commanding mighty warjacks on the field of battle. Yet despite their inborn abilities, these powerful soldier-sorcerers began as novices, forced to harness their talents in rigorously structured military training programs or through the brutal crucible of battle.
"Great stories, not so great narrator"
Beowulf has been translated before, but not like this. In this faithful, but hardly wooden translation, Douglas Wilson gives listeners a taste of the heavy alliteration of Anglo-Saxon poetry. Lewis said Anglo-Saxon poetry was like "blows from a hammer" or "the repeated thunder of breakers on the beach." This recording should delight anyone who loves the sounds of words for their own sake. The essays found in the book are not included in this recording.
Honor's Voice provides a revealing look at how Abraham Lincoln became the 16th president of the United States and one of the greatest men of his time. Douglas Wilson traces the development of this great leader from an insecure country boy full of ambition to schoolboy, storekeeper, riverboat man, and, finally, politician. The author returns to original sources, including friends and acquaintances in the Illinois of the 1830s and '40s and exposes truths about Lincoln never before revealed.
