This volume brings together fourteen mostly previously published articles by the prominent Nietzsche scholar Maudemarie Clark. Clark's previous two books on Nietzsche focused on his views on truth, metaphysics, and knowledge, but she has published a great deal on Nietzsche's views on ethics and politics in article form. Putting those articles -- many of which appeared in obscure venues -- together in book form will allow readers to see more easily how her views fit together as a whole, exhibit important developments of her ideas, and highlight Clark's distinctive voice in Nietzsche studies. Clark provides an introduction tying her themes together and placing them in their broader context.

In Ethics: The Essential Writings, philosopher Gordon Marino skillfully presents an accessible, provocative anthology of both ancient and modern classics on matters moral. The philosophers represent 2,500 years of thought—from Plato, Kant, and Nietzsche to Alasdair MacIntyre, Susan Wolf, and Peter Singer—and cover a broad range of topics, from the timeless questions of justice, morality, and faith to the hot-button concerns of today, such as animal rights, our duties to the environment, and gender issues. Featuring an illuminating preamble, concise introductory essays on the giants of ethical theory, and incisive chapter headnotes to the modern offerings, this Modern Library edition is a perfect single-volume reference for students, teachers, and anyone eager to engage in reflection on ethical questions, including “What is the basis for our ethical views and judgments?” Gordon Marino is professor of philosophy and director of the Hong Kierkegaard Library at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. A recipient of the Richard J. Davis Ethics Award for excellence in writing on ethics and the law, he is the author of Kierkegaard in the Present Age, co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to Kierkegaard, and editor of the Modern Library’s Basic Writings of Existentialism. His essays have appeared in The New York Times. From the Trade Paperback edition.

What does Christianity have to say about the salvation of the African tribesman who died before the missionaries arrived, and the great sorrow of the Messianic Jew who grieves for family and friends who did not or will not acknowledge his Jesus as their Messiah? C. S. Lewis said these outsiders represent the scandal of exclusivity. Jim Geiger is a Christian insider and fully committed to the exclusivity of Christ's atonement. However, he is suggesting an expanded Christology where: • The constant speed of light in E = mc2 corroborates the constant Christ of Heb 13:8. • Special and general relativity model special and general revelation. • The Christ of general revelation represents the hope of salvation for some of Christianity's outsiders.

Building Bridges is about a unique friendship between Pope John Paul II and a Jewish woman from Poland, Lena Allen-Shore. They did not meet until 1996 but their lives had a number of surprising similarities: both were born in Poland at around the same time, raised in similar economic circumstances, both celebrated Polish culture through poetry, music, theatre and philosophy. During World War II, the young seminarian went underground to complete his studies while the young seminarian went underground to complete his studies while the young women assumed a Christian identity to survive. Decades later, it would be Lena Allen-Shore who encouraged the Pope to take up poetry once more. Scarred by the war and the unprecedented Holocaust of European Jews, Pope John Paul II and Lena Allen-Shore resolved to build bridges between Christians and Jews-John Paul by his journeys, meetings and public statements denouncing anti-Semitism, Lena Allen-Shore through her teaching and writing. As their friendship deepened, the Pope invited her to attend Key events celebrating Jewish-Christian dialogue, in Jerusalem and Assisi. This is an insightful and moving book about what may be the Pope's most important legacy, the building of bridges between Christians and Jews by witnessing to the Holocaust. The story of his unique friendship with a Jewish compatriot makes this achievement understandable in human terms.
