The Only Question You Ever Need Ask is a theological essay in which philosopher Steven Colborne examines what he believes to be the central question of theology — a question which he invites every spiritually minded person to consider.
On Colborne's philosophy blog, Perfect Chaos, a community of deep thinkers have been exploring life's big questions together for nearly a decade. During that time, Colborne has written over 400 articles on theology related questions and has published several critically acclaimed books which present a philosophical perspective that is both unusual and insightful.
Throughout his career, Colborne has continually challenged Christian believers to provide a logical solution to the free will predicament — a predicament which draws into question whether the absolute sovereignty of God can be reconciled with the cherished Christian doctrine of human free will.
In The Only Question You Ever Need Ask, Colborne explores a single question which gets to the very heart of the free will predicament. With reference to the doctrines and Scriptures of Christianity, Colborne presents, explores, and finally answers that question, and the conclusion that the author comes to in the final part of the essay is both provocative and enlightening.
For genuine seekers after Truth, this is a book which should not be ignored.
The true story of Theresa Knorr, the twisted child abuser who murdered her daughters—with the help of her sons—told by a former New York Times reporter. In June 1985, Theresa Cross Knorr dumped her daughter Sheila’s body in California’s desolate High Sierra. She had beaten Sheila unconscious in their Sacramento apartment days earlier, then locked her in a closet to die. But this wasn’t the first horrific crime she’d committed against her own children. The previous summer, Knorr had shot Sheila’s sister Suesan, then ordered her son to dig the bullet out of the girl’s back with a knife to hide the evidence. The infection that resulted led to delirium—at which point Knorr and her two sons drove Suesan into the mountains, doused her with gasoline, and set her on fire. It would be almost a decade before her youngest daughter, Terry Knorr Graves, revealed her mother’s history of unfathomable violence. At first, she was met with disbelief by law enforcement and even her own therapist. But eventually, the truth about her monstrous abuse emerged—and here, an award-winning journalist details the jealousy, rage, and domineering behavior that escalated into homicide and shattered a family. A former reporter for the New York Times and Los AngelesTimes and the author of true-crime classics including Angel of Darkness, about serial killer Randy Kroft, and Blood Cold, about Robert Blake and Bonny Lee Bakley, Dennis McDougal reveals the shocking depths of depravity behind a case that made headlines across the nation.
The English-language debut of Hiroko Oyamada—one of the most powerfully strange young voices in Japan
The English-language debut of one of Japan's most exciting new writers, The Factory follows three workers at a sprawling industrial factory. Each worker focuses intently on the specific task they've been assigned: one shreds paper, one proofreads documents, and another studies the moss growing all over the expansive grounds. But their lives slowly become governed by their work—days take on a strange logic and momentum, and little by little, the margins of reality seem to be dissolving: Where does the factory end and the rest of the world begin? What's going on with the strange animals here? And after a while—it could be weeks or years—the three workers struggle to answer the most basic question: What am I doing here?
With hints of Kafka and unexpected moments of creeping humor, The Factory casts a vivid—and sometimes surreal—portrait of the absurdity and meaninglessness of the modern workplace.
