Religion and liberty are often thought to be mutual enemies: if religion has a natural ally, it is authoritarianism--not republicanism or democracy. But in this book, Maurizio Viroli, a leading historian of republican political thought, challenges this conventional wisdom. He argues that political emancipation and the defense of political liberty have always required the self-sacrifice of people with religious sentiments and a religious devotion to liberty. This is particularly the case when liberty is threatened by authoritarianism: the staunchest defenders of liberty are those who feel a deeply religious commitment to it. Viroli makes his case by reconstructing, for the first time, the history of the Italian "religion of liberty," covering its entire span but focusing on three key examples of political emancipation: the free republics of the late Middle Ages, the Risorgimento of the nineteenth century, and the antifascist Resistenza of the twentieth century. In each example, Viroli shows, a religious spirit that regarded moral and political liberty as the highest goods of human life was fundamental to establishing and preserving liberty. He also shows that when this religious sentiment has been corrupted or suffocated, Italians have lost their liberty. This book makes a powerful and provocative contribution to today's debates about the compatibility of religion and republicanism.

And the final struggle, is about to begin… The fate of three Houses will decide the destiny of nations, and of the world. The House of Perseus, rulers of Mycenae rich in gold, they will turn upon one another in their fight for the right to rule. Outcasts, they will wander the world seeking lost glory. Will Heracles, the scion of this once great dynasty, return it to its former glory, or ensure its downfall forever?

The House of Pelops, thrice cursed, their undead namesake will seal a deal with the Queen of the Gods, an arrangement that will see his sons Atreus and Thyestes called to take the Lion Throne. Will the curse continue? Or will they overcome the past to replace those chosen by the Gods of Olympus to rule? Behind it all Hera, the outcast Queen of the Olympians, rolls the dice in the game of Gods and Kings, as she seeks to change the ancient world forever. It is a time of blood and betrayal. A time of myth and legend. A time for the Sword of Olympus to rise.

The Second Book of The Last War of Gods and Men In an ancient world of gods and heroes, the threat of war is rising… From the city of Trachis, near the pass of Thermopylae, three kings set sail for the holy island of Asteria and the gathering of kings called by the twin temples of Apollo and Artemis, intent on foiling the plans of Atreus, king of Mycenae, who seeks dominion over all the cities and kingdoms of the Aegean sea. To the north, in the shadow of Mount Olympus, the hero Heracles looks to free the besieged city of Elone, joining forces with the Centaurs to wage war against the combined armies of Lapith and Dryopes warriors, who under the command of the Strategos Coronus have been ordered to destroy the city of the Hellenes. While Hera, the outcast Queen of the Gods, strives to raise a new god to cast aside the old, and will sacrifice the immortals of Pelasgia to achieve her goal. Yet all the while the question remains, where are the other Olympians? Against a backdrop of war and betrayal, a young man will struggle to understand the power of the gods, and his role in the struggle to come. And if they are not careful, the Dark Queen will sacrifice all to chaos.

Using the analogy of an abusive human relationship, Young traces the influence of the psychology of such behavior on the major monotheistic religions' concept of God and concludes that such imagery generates violence in the name of God in the contemporary world, including in "the war on terror." Explores these theological themes in terms of U.S. imperialistic policies, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, and Jihadist ideology.

Most Westerners are alert to challenges posed by Muslim fundamentalism, but few have given much thought to the implications of a similar phenomenon within the Christian communion. Literal readings of sacred texts are dangerous, for those who believe that they can quote the words of God implicitly claim the right to act with the authority of God.

There is a pervasive need today for men to "man up" to the challenges facing the family unit in our nation. But that isn't a new problem. Looking Biblically, we see it reaches as far back as Adam, and since that time, men have been making choices-some wise, and some terribly un-wise-that have sent their ripple-effect down through the generations. Throughout scripture God had mighty men who had hearts for Him, and He always chose to help those who sought Him and His ways. He still seeks to help those who choose to be mighty men for Him. The problems are the same.issues of integrity, character, strength, and faith. By looking at the examples of those mighty men, lessons can be learned that will enable the men of today to become mighty and be the strength that our families, churches, and society need them to be.
