In Germany, more than anywhere else, Darwinism was a sensational success. Setting his analysis against the background of popular science, Kelly follows popular Darwinism as it permeated education, religion, politics, and social thought in Germany. He explains how the popularizers changed Darwin's thought in subtle ways and how these changes colored their perceptions of Darwinism. Among the first purveyors of mass culture, the Germans provide valuable clues as to how seminal ideas move through a society. Originally published in 1981.

In the midst of the many hardships we endure in our daily lives, it can be difficult to define the true meaning of love, let alone find it. Yet living without such love can leave us empty and unfulfilled. Consolatus C. Okorondu can help. Drawing on her personal relationship with God and many of her life experiences, Okorondu explores the supreme definition of love and how it can offer us liberation from the darkness within our souls. With an in-depth look at scriptures from the Holy Bible, Okorondu shares how true love will always lead you to peace and harmony toward God, others, and yourself. Learn how the fruits of love-patience, understanding, acceptance, consideration, honesty, forgiveness, and communication-are the key to successful relationships with others, whether it be your family, your spouse, your friends, or even your co-workers. Okorondu also shares different personal interpretations of love from others to reveal how the common human experience unites us all. But at its heart, Discover the Secret of True Love shows the awesome love that God has for each of his children. Find inner peace with the love from our almighty Father and renew your spirit!

You wish me to explain for what reason and in what measure we should love God. I should say that God Himself is the motive of our love to Him, and that the measure of due love is to be without measure. Is this clear enough? Perhaps it may be for a person of intelligence, but I desire to answer for both the learned and unlearned; and, though I may have said enough for the former, I must remember others also. For them I will unfold my meaning, and perhaps add somewhat to it. Aeterna Press

Witnesses of Perfect Love

Narratives of Christian Perfection in Early Methodism

In Witnesses of Perfection Amy Caswell Bratton explores how the eighteenth-century doctrine of Christian Perfection spread in the early British Methodist communities. Alongside leaders such as John and Charles Wesley teaching about Christian Perfection, Methodist men and women told narratives of Christian Perfection which transmitted the doctrine. Using narrative to spread Christian Perfection was effective because it both communicated the content of the experience of Christian Perfection and also commended this experience to the listener. This study is noteworthy for its detailed analysis of several first-hand narratives that testify to the experience, and which were made public for the edification of the Methodist community in the Arminian Magazine and other publications. The narratives of four Methodist people are examined at length: Sarah Crosby (1729-1804), George Clark (1710-1797), William Hunter (1728-1797) and Bathsheba Hall (1745-1780). In addition to observing the transmission of the doctrine through narrative, the study of these stories illuminates early Methodist spirituality and the doctrine of Christian Perfection (or entire sanctification) through the embodiment of Perfection in the life of real people. This lived-out expression of Christian Perfection draws attention to unique elements of the doctrine as each narrative illustrates nuances of Christian Perfection. Finally, the narratives of Perfection offer the embodiment of transformation which resulted in lasting change.
