    Beloved by generations of readers, the Chronicles of Narnia are thought, erroneously, by some to be "mere children's stories." In this volume, Joseph Pearce thoroughly debunks the error as he skillfully explains why there is nothing "mere" about such stories. Rather, the Narnia books contain profound insights concerning the human condition. Pearce, however, goes beyond even that and illuminates the deeper riches and profound truths found therein: the highest truths, in fact, those concerning God.Join Pearce as he explores the "grown-up" themes that are so important for a proper understanding of Lewis's magnificent creation, including the deep and profound Christian symbolism, extensive literary allusions, and the constant theme of temptation, sin, and redemption.The author of numerous literary works and an authority on the writings of Lewis, Chesterton, and Tolkien, Pearce is uniquely qualified to examine the deeper theological, philosophical, and historical dimensions of the Chronicles. With Pearce as your guide, "return to Narnia" and come to understand in new and profound ways that place which has so marked the imaginative landscape of so many. Rediscover your love for Narnia, because "wardrobes are for grown-ups too."

    The Depths of December

    The Depths of December is a short and punchy (12,000 word) treatment on one of the most pivotal naval battles in WW2: when the British Far East Fleet found itself pitted against the Mitsubishi Bombers of the 22nd Flotilla Imperial Japanese Air Service off the coast of Singapore and Malaya.It is narrated in an engaging and high-energy style by the author of the book. Praise for Stuart Lloyd’s military history writing comes from very high quarters indeed:'We are in the hands of a truly professional wordsmith ... I am lost for words.' -- Rear Admiral (ret’d) Ian Richards, Royal Australian Navy.For years Britain and Japan had followed different strategies for warfare. ‘Big Guns’ for the former, ‘Air Strike Power’ for the latter. And on 10 December 1941 — just a few days after Pearl Harbour — it was proof of concept time.The Depths of December is classic Stuart Lloyd storytelling (‘the perfect storyteller’ according to The Telegraph UK) because he uses first-person quotes from those in the thick of the battle action to drive the narrative along.We get a ringside seat in the waters off Kuantan, Malaya. For example:“The vibration and speed of Repulse was truly unbelievable,” said said Seaman Matthews. ”Our skipper had us falling over everywhere in his attempt to comb the incoming torpedoes … I began to notice that the bombers were starting to fly directly overhead after they’d dropped their torpedoes. It was as if they were taunting us. I could even see the pilots’ faces quite clearly.”Ian Hay was part of this frantic action, ordered to dash between ready-ammunition storage areas and the exposed gun mounts as an ammunition bearer. “The run back along the deck was terrifying. It had now claimed the lives of three of our delivery party, all by machine gun fire. It was like playing some crazy game of dare.”Stuart is at his passionate storytelling best in this audiobook.

    Making Sense of the Alt-Right

    During the 2016 election, a new term entered the American political lexicon: the "alt-right," short for "alternative right." Despite the innocuous name, the alt-right is a white-nationalist movement. Yet it differs from earlier racist groups: it is youthful and tech-savvy, obsessed with provocation and trolling, amorphous, predominantly online, and mostly anonymous. And it was energized by Donald Trump's presidential campaign. In Making Sense of the Alt-Right, George Hawley provides an accessible introduction to the alt-right, giving vital perspective on the emergence of a group whose overt racism has confounded expectations for a more tolerant America.Hawley explains the movement's origins, evolution, methods, and its core belief in white identity politics. The book explores how the alt-right differs from traditional white nationalism, libertarianism, and other online illiberal ideologies such as neoreaction, as well as from mainstream Republicans and even Donald Trump and Steve Bannon. The alt-right's use of offensive humor and its trolling-driven approach, based in animosity to so-called political correctness, can make it difficult to determine true motivations. Yet through exclusive interviews and a careful study of the alt-right's influential texts, Hawley is able to paint a full picture of a movement that not only disagrees with liberalism but fundamentally rejects most of the tenets of American conservatism. Hawley points to the alt-right's growing influence and makes a case for coming to a precise understanding of its beliefs without sensationalism or downplaying the movement's radicalism.
