Drawing on both a wide range of scholarship as well as his own acute searching as a believer, Carroll takes a fresh look at the most familiar narratives of all - Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Not simply another book about the "historical Jesus," he takes the challenges of science and contemporary philosophy seriously, even as he retrieves the power of Jesus' profound ordinariness, as an answer to his own last question - what is the future of Jesus Christ? - as the key to a renewal of faith.
"Good book - hire a real reader"
This first book by the much-loved stars of TV's Village Vets is the unforgettable, hilarious, heartwarming and hair-raising adventures of two country vets, the animals they treat and the characters they meet. Best mates since they met on their first day at uni, Anthony Bennett and James Carroll both dreamed of working with animals from the time they were young. Committed to and passionate about caring for creatures great and small, they share a mischievous sense of humour and a wonder for life.
Compiled and performed by James Carroll Jordan, this is an entertaining take on Mark Twain's tales of his travels around the world relating to women he has observed and met. Jordan presents the stories much as Mark Twain may have done himself in his days on the lecture circuit in the 19th century.
This landmark, myth-shattering work chronicles the most powerful institution in America, the people who created it, and the pathologies it has spawned. Carroll proves a controversial thesis: the Pentagon has, since its founding, operated beyond the control of any force in government or society. It is the biggest, loosest cannon in American history, and no institution has changed this country more.
"Worthy reading ... with your eyes."
Compiled and performed by James Carroll Jordan, this is an entertaining take on Mark Twain's early writing. Taking inspiration from Roughing It, Twain's semi-autobiographical travelogue, Jordan presents the story much as Mark Twain may have done himself in his days on the lecture circuit in the 19th century.
