´´My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge´´ (Hosea 4:6). So mourned the prophet Hosea. The glory of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is that ´´all shall know [God], from the least to the greatest of them´´ (Heb. 8:11). Spiritual knowledge is open to all God´s children today. It is therefore not only our duty but also our privilege to seek this knowledge. In the present volume, brother Watchman Nee attempts to help us to develop this spiritual knowledge. He points out the difference between mental knowledge and spiritual knowledge, shows the ways to the true knowledge of God as well as of ourselves, and explains the relationship between spiritual knowledge and the renewed mind. 1.

Maybe it was a viral pandemic or an asteroid strike or perhaps nuclear war. Whatever the cause, the world as we know it has ended, and you and the other survivors must start again. What key knowledge would you need to start rebuilding civilisation from scratch? Once you’ve scavenged what you can, how do you begin producing the essentials? How do you grow food, generate power, prepare medicines, or get metal out of rocks? Could you avert another Dark Ages or take shortcuts to accelerate redevelopment? Living in the modern world, we have become disconnected from the basic processes that support our lives, as well as the beautiful fundamentals of science that enable you to relearn things for yourself. The Knowledge is a journey of discovery, a book which explains everything you need to know about everything. This is a quickstart guide for rebooting civilisation which will transform your understanding of the world - and help you prepare for when it’s no longer here...http://the-knowledge.org/ 1.

How far would you go to hide a truth that will kill you? My life changed in a matter of minutes. The choices I made led me to a life of crime and caused me to become the worst sort of criminal; I became a traitor to the country of New York. For better or worse, the path my life has taken is irreversible. I’ve killed, I’ve died, and I’ve risked my life in attempt to destroy a society built on over 100 years of lies and corruption. My name is Jacob Ashton, and this is my story. Absolute Knowledge is the first of a trilogy that takes place in a dark, futuristic New York City set in 2146. The country of New York is divided into three physical tiers, and the faceless government is working to establish absolute knowledge by collecting the thoughts of its citizens. In Absolute Knowledge, every thought has a price. Drew Cordell´s debut novel is a new addition to the great cyberpunk sci-fi tradition of William Gibson, Ernest Cline, Bruce Sterling, and John Shirley. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jon Wilkins.

Robbie Parsons is one of London´s finest, a black cab driver who knows the city by heart. In his backseat is a man with a gun in his hand - a man who brazenly committed a crime in front of the Artemis Club then jumped in and ordered Parsons to drive. As the criminal eventually escapes to Nairobi, Detective Superintendent Richard Jury comes across the case in the Saturday paper. Two days previously, he had met and connected with one of the victims, a professor of astrophysics at Columbia and an expert gambler. Feeling personally affronted, Jury enlists Melrose Plant, Marshall Trueblood, and his whole gang of merry characters to contend with a case that involves Tanzanian gem mines, a closed Reno casino, and a pub that only London´s black cabbies who have the knowledge can find. With their signature wit, sly plotting, and gloriously offbeat characters, Martha Grimes´s New York Times best-selling Richard Jury Mysteries are ´´utterly unlike anyone else´s detective novels´´ (The Washington Post). 1.

These delightful stories capture the very essence of India. These stories are set in both the rustic setting of laid back villages, where time has almost stopped to the modern settings of cities, where everyone is in a hurry to reach somewhere, yesterday. Simple stories, simple ideas, simple thoughts reminds one of the simple life that once existed and is now more and more getting lost as we are drawn inexorably into the speedy web of things. Some of the stories are inspired by folk tales of India and others by simple observations that the author has seen and felt. Nonetheless, they are meant just for the pure joy of listening. 1.

It is made clear what discursive knowledge is and how we acquire it, and some age-old skeptical views are shown to be incoherent. It is shown that all knowledge is to some degree inferential. At the same time, it is shown that there are three quite distinct senses in which empirical knowledge can be inferential. It is proved that we have a priori knowledge, and also that knowledge of non-empirical truths is needed to acquire empirical knowledge. Finally, it is clearly explained what prediction is, what explanation is, how the two differ, and how they are similar. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lori L. Parker.

Stephen Fry presents this intriguing programme charting the history of knowledge, how technology changes our relationship with it, and how we know what we know. Knowledge. The Google generation thinks it doesn’t need to carry much of it around in its head any more. Much has already been written about the internet changing the way we think and learn. But is knowledge less valuable than it used to be? This absorbing programme explores the concept of ‘knowledge’, drawing on a variety of diverse sources: quiz games, psychology, education, news, trivia shows, satellite navigation and comedy. Featuring cab drivers, philosophers, memory champions and members of the Brains Trust, it looks at topics including cultural relativism, language learning and prodigious feats of memory. Plus, it attempts to answer such questions as: what constitutes useful knowledge in an era when we can find anything very quickly?; why has ´useless knowledge´ gained in currency?; and, if Typhoo put the tea in Britain, should we take the piss out of epistemology? Packed with interviews, debates and a feast of archive clips from the past three decades, this is an enlightening and entertaining overview of the world of knowledge, both general and specific. 1.
