The play Isaac and Amanda is among other things a love story about Isaac Newton and a woman named Amanda. It also contains material about the conflicts that Newton had with the scientist Robert Hooke and the mathematician Leibniz. The latter conflict deals with the issue of who should receive credit for the discovery of Calculus. Furthermore, it deals with that period of Newtons life when he was an official in the Mint (the equivalent in the United States of the Treasury Department) trying to solve Britains currency problems and his difficulties with the master counterfeiter Challoner and especially Challoners wife. Finally, it brings up the issue of Newtons year when he was so depressed that some people say he had a nervous breakdown. Some of the material in Isaac and Amanda is to be found in the play On the Shoulders of Giants, written by the same authors.

Rancorous and highly public disagreements between Isaiah Berlin and Isaac Deutscher escalated to the point of cruel betrayal in the mid-1960s, yet surprisingly the details of the episode have escaped historians’ scrutiny. In this gripping account of the ideological clash between two of the most influential scholars of Cold War politics, David Caute uncovers a hidden story of passionate beliefs, unresolved antagonism, and the high cost of reprisal to both victim and perpetrator. Though Deutscher (1907–1967) and Berlin (1909–1997) had much in common—each arrived in England in flight from totalitarian violence, quickly mastered English, and found entry into the Anglo-American intellectual world of the 1950s—Berlin became one of the presiding voices of Anglo-American liberalism, while Deutscher remained faithful to his Leninist heritage, resolutely defending Soviet conduct despite his rejection of Stalin’s tyranny. Caute combines vivid biographical detail with an acute analysis of the issues that divided these two icons of Cold War politics, and brings to light for the first time the full severity of Berlin’s action against Deutscher.

The Ordeals Of Isaac And Jacob

The biblical author had to demonstrate that the founding fathers of the model civilization-envisioned in Mosaic legislation intended as a model for emulation by other peoples and nations-were recognizably human-flawed as all humans are. One can empathize with Isaac or Jacob who are seen to be human with their faults and frailties-which one cannot do with a superhuman being. These stories illustrate dramatically there are no characters of mythic proportions, no superheroes, only normal people living in dysfunctional families, erring, doing acts that are occasionally senseless, and often embarrassing. Yet, these same people passed on an intellectual and spiritual heritage that will ultimately find full expression in the teachings found in the remaining books of the Pentateuch.The Ordeals of Isaac and Jacob focuses on what the biblical texts are telling us-explicitly and implicitly-about these men, the world in which they lived, and how they managed to preserve the covenantal heritage left to them by Abraham. Since biblical texts are not as clear as one might imagine, scholars have struggled for two millennia to comprehend what the texts are actually stating and attempting to convey to the reader. In re-examining these Texts, the author has consulted a wide range of commentaries and studies which approach the biblical narratives from a variety of perspectives, and offers some novel insights of his own.

David had it all. At just twenty-nine, he was prepared to receive the promotion that would put him on the fast track to a successful career. But the morning of his promotional interview brought about shocking news that sent David’s perfectly systematic life spiraling and him on a quest to find his missing brother, Tim, with whom David had had no contact with since the death of their mother. A staunch atheist, David’s views were radically different from those of his brother, who he knew had become involved with a fanatical Christian organization. Out of a sense of obligation to fulfill his mother’s last wish, David set off on a quest to find his brother. But what he didn’t count on was that the search for his brother would bring him face to face with his faltering belief in God and a two-thousand-year-old war between Christians and Satanists. As he dives deeper into this underground world, David begins to realize his love of his brother and of God and his extraordinary abilities, which may finally bring resolution to this ancient conflict. As he discovers these revelations, he has to help answer one of the most important questions in history: Where is the Testimonial?
