    You don't have to be a computer scientist to get involved in the discussion about where artificial intelligence and technology are going. 
    What will the year 2084 hold for you--for your friends, for your family, and for our society? Are we doomed to the grim dystopia imagined in George Orwell’s 1984? 
    In 2084, scientist and philosopher John Lennox will introduce you to a kaleidoscope of ideas: the key developments in technological enhancement, bioengineering, and, in particular, artificial intelligence. You will discover the current capacity of AI, its advantages and disadvantages, the facts and the fiction, as well as potential future implications. 
    The questions posed by AI are open to all of us. And they demand answers. A book that is written to challenge all readers, no matter your worldview, 2084 shows how the Christian worldview, properly understood, can provide evidence-based, credible answers that will bring you real hope for the future of humanity.

    For many with a background in humanities, the thought of exploring the sciences can seem to be daunting at best. This can be especially true with regard to physics which often incorporates complex mathematical formulas as well. But that doesn’t have to be the case. In fact, many of the most significant principles of physics can be broken down and understood in very easy-to-understand terms. That is exactly the manner in which Professor Richard Kouzes handles the subject in this engaging series of lectures. Exploring many of the most significant concepts in physics, Professor Kouzes explains each in a very straightforward and approachable manner. He begins by examining the history of physics - the “knowledge of nature,” - as a science which encompasses the study of matter and all of the phenomena that are observed in our universe. He also explores the origins of physics, tracing it back to the ancient world. Subsequent lectures then delve into some of the major principles of physics such as the Laws of Motion, Energy, Thermodynamics, and Electromagnetism. Building upon these, Professor Kouzes then guides listeners to a better understanding of some of the more complex applications of physics such as Nuclear Physics and Quantum Mechanics and the ways in which physics impacts each of lives on a daily basis.

    The science and history of what lies between us and space: “I never knew air could be so interesting.” —Bill Bryson, New York Times bestselling author of The Body: A Guide for Occupants 
    A flamboyant Renaissance Italian discovers how heavy our air really is (the air filling Carnegie Hall, for example, weighs seventy thousand pounds). A one-eyed barnstorming pilot finds a set of winds that constantly blow five miles above our heads. An impoverished American farmer figures out why hurricanes move in a circle by carving equations with his pitchfork on a barn door. A well-meaning inventor nearly destroys the ozone layer (he also came up with the idea of putting lead in gasoline). A reclusive mathematical genius predicts, thirty years before he’s proven right, that the sky contains a layer of floating metal fed by the glowing tails of shooting stars. 
    We don’t just live in the air; we live because of it. It’s the most miraculous substance on earth, responsible for our food, our weather, our water, and our ability to hear. In this exuberant book, science writer Gabrielle Walker peels back the layers of our atmosphere with the stories of the people who have uncovered its secrets. 
    “A sense of wonder . . . animates Ms. Walker’s high-spirited narrative and speeds it along like a fresh-blowing westerly.” —The New York Times 
    “A fabulous introduction to the world above our heads.” —Daily Mail on Sunday 
    “A lively history of scientists’ and adventurers’ exploration of this important and complex contributor to life on Earth . . . readers will find this informative book to be a breath of fresh air.” —Publishers Weekly
