Da Vinci Code Decoded

Author: Martin Lunn

Publisher: Disinformation Company Ltd (2004)

The Da Vinci code is a modern-day publishing phenomenon. With millions of copies in print, it is the most popular adult novel of the 21st Century. In an introductory note author Dan Brown tells us that ""all descriptions of documents and secret rituals...are accurate"". But are they? Now Martin Lunn, an expert historian, reveals the truth behind Brown's research. Non-dogmatic and not out to discredit Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code for religious reasons, as some critics in the past have been, Lunn delivers the one essential reader's guide to this highly controversial novel. Martin Lunn is a recognised expert in the Davidic bloodline and other issues presented in The Da Vinci Code. He has a Masters degree in History and an extensive background in journalism. He is also the Grand master of the Dragon Society, founded in 1408 by King Sigismund of Hungary.

Deluded By Darwinism?

Author: Martin Down

Publisher: David C Cook (2007)

For many years Martin Down believed what Teacher said in school... that the world evolved over millions of years, and all the species we see today were formed by random mutation and natural selection. But as a Christian he found a different account in the Bible. Here was a conflict of ideas between scientists who, like Darwin, believed that the world was self-explanatory, and the Bible that said the world was created by God. But now, into the heart of this conflict, has come a new and astounding perspective: scientific evidence of Intelligent Design. Could science itself now be leading to the reappearance of God? Martin Down invites us to reconsider the evidence.

Every Time I Find The Meaning Of Life, They Change It

Author: Daniel Klein

Publisher: Oneworld Publications (2015)

Fifty years ago it was the hope of finding some guidance on how to live the best life he could that led Daniel Klein to embark on the study of philosophy at Harvard, where he began filling a notebook with short quotations from the world's greatest thinkers. Now, decades later, Klein revisits the wisdom he relished in his youth and takes a wryly humorous look at some of life's great issues. From Epicurus and Emerson to Camus and Beckett, Klein expounds upon each pithy pronouncement with his inimitable charm and insight. The result is "Every Time I Find the Meaning of Life..." - a light-hearted meditation on the most profound subject there is.

God, Money And Politics

Author: Simon Hayhoe

Publisher: Information Age Publishing (2008)

Our book examines the role of three factors, God, Money, and Politics, in the epistemological theory of blindness, (the theory of the construction of knowledge on blindness and touch by social and cultural change). This book also illustrates this development has, in the main, been motivated by an attempt to assert or gain power and why the study of blindness in conventional academic subjects such as psychology, history and sociology is so important. We do this by presenting the main theories of disability and blindness that have informed the writing of this book, and a frame of reference for the historical story. Which places the book in the broad context of theories of disability and blindness, within an academic and symbolic context of physical impairment and the social mythologies that accompany such understanding.
