You think you know about Christianity, but did you know... God likes "organized religion"; it's clear from both the New and Old Testaments Christians have always believed that men and women are equal The correct pronoun for angels is "he" Science was stillborn everywhere outside the Christian West Christianity, which first taught the world to value victims, is now the victim of a victimhood culture Many "miracles" are actually historical facts Famous atheists haven't been disinterested seekers of truth, but indiviudals with "issues" of their own Planned Parenthood kills more people every six days than the Spanish Inquisition killed in 350 years Michael Foley is an associate professor of patristics in the Great Texts Program at Baylor University. He is also the author of Drinking with the Saints: The Sinner's Guide to a Holy Happy Hour.

In the beginning, the Bible was regarded as the “Good Book,” but today it is under relentless attack from left wing audiences, novelists, and screenwriters to justify their own political agendas. But fear not: award-winning religious journalist Robert J. Hutchinson refutes the mockers, skeptics, and deniers in his new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible. Using historical evidence and thorough analysis, Hutchinson not only proves the Bible to be true (and the liberal Left wrong), but also takes the truth one step further–showing how the Bible built and shaped Western civilization. The Bible is the source for the Western ideas of justice, science, and democracy, Hutchinson argues, and without it, Western civilization would not exist.

"The courageous Robert Spencer busts myths and tells truths about jihadists that no one else will tell." -- Michelle Malkin, bestselling author and columnist While many choose to simply blame the West for provoking terrorists, Robert Spencer’s new book The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)™ reveals why it is time to ignore political correctness and identify the enemy, if we hope to ever defeat them. In a fast-paced, politically incorrect tour of Islamic teachings and Crusades history, Spencer reveals the roots of Islamic violence and hatred. Spencer refutes the myths popularized by left-wing academics and Islamic apologists who justify their political agendas with contrived historical “facts.” Exposing myth after myth, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)™ tackles Islam’s institutionalized mistreatment of non-Muslims, the stifling effect Islam has on science and free inquiry, the ghastly lure of Islam’s X-rated Paradise for suicide bombers and jihad terrorists, the brutal Islamic conquests of the Christian lands of the Middle East and North Africa, and more. In The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)™, you will learn: How Muhammad did not teach “peace and tolerance”—instead he led armies and ordered the assassination of his enemies Why American Muslim groups and left-wing academics are engaged in a huge cover-up of Islamic doctrine and historyHow today’s jihad terrorists following the Qur’an’s command to make war on Jews and Christians have the same motives and goals as the Muslims who fought the Crusaders Why the Crusades were not acts of unprovoked aggression by Europe against the Islamic world, but a delayed response to centuries of Muslim aggression What must be done today—from reading the Qur’an to reclassifying Muslim organizations—in order to defeat jihad terrorists

As presidential candidates sling dirt at each other, America desperately needs a few real heroes. Tragically, liberal historians and educators have virtually erased traditional American heroes from history. According to the Left, the Founding Fathers were not noble architects of America, but selfish demagogues. And self–made entrepreneurs like Rockefeller were robber–barons and corporate polluters. Instead of honoring great men from America’s past, kids today now idolize rock stars, pro athletes and Hollywood celebrities. In his new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Real American Heroes, author Brion McClanahan rescues the legendary deeds of the greatest Americans and shows why we ought to venerate heroes like Captain John Smith, adventurer Daniel Boone, General Robert E. Lee and many more. The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Real American Heroes not only resuscitates America’s forgotten heroes, but sheds light on the Left’s most cherished figures, including Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the Kennedys. With biting wit and devastating detail, McClanahan strikes back against the multicultural narrative peddled by liberal historians who make heroes out of pop culture icons and corrupt politicians. In America’s hour of peril, McClanahan’s book is a timely and entertaining call to remember the heritage of this great nation and the heroes who built it.

The British Empire, ”the biggest empire in history”once ruled a quarter of the globe. It was built by an incredible array of swashbuckling soldiers and sailors, pirates and adventurers who finally get their due in H. W. Crocker III's panoramic and provocative view of four hundred years of history that will delight and amuse, educate and entertain. Strap on your pith helmet for a rollicking ride through some of history's most colorful events. Bet your teacher never told you: The Founding Fathers didn't rebel against British imperialism; they looked forward to the transfer of the great seat of Empire to America. The original Norman English invasion of Ireland was approved by the pope. Sir Charles Napier, commander in chief of the British Army in India, abolished the Hindu custom of widow-burning. Field Marshal Sir Gerald Templer's hearts and minds counter- insurgency strategy was instrumental in defeating the Communists in Malaya. The breakup of the British Empire led Winston Churchill to conclude that he had achieved nothing in his life.

Gleichheit oder Oligarchie, Individualismus oder Unfreiheit, Wahrheit oder Fake News – die Welt, wie wir sie kannten, steht am Scheideweg. Viel hat der Westen selbst dazu beigetragen. Aber er hat auch mächtige Feinde, die seine Institutionen mit allen Mitteln – von der Finanzierung des Rechtspopulismus in Europa bis zum Cyberwar – untergraben wollen. Wer diese Gegner sind, wie sie vorgehen und wie bedrohlich die Lage ist, das beschreibt das aufsehenerregende neue Buch von Tim Snyder. Mit dem Ende des Kalten Krieges hatten die liberalen Demokratien des Westens gesiegt. Von nun an würde die Menschheit eine friedvolle, globalisierte Zukunft erwarten. Doch das war ein Irrtum. Seit Putin seine Macht in Russland etabliert hat, rollt eine Welle des Autoritarismus von Osten nach Westen, die Europ... a erfasst hat und mit Donald Trump auch im Weißen Haus angekommen ist. Tim Snyder, Autor des Weltbestsellers «Über Tyrannei», beschreibt in seinem Buch den Aufstieg dieser neuen «rechten Internationalen», schildert ihre bedrohlichen Ziele und zeigt, wie sehr die Grundlagen unserer Demokratie in Gefahr sind.

When, in 1992, some people wanted to celebrate the 500th year of the 1492 discovery of America by Columbus, the U.S. National Council of Churches responded by condemning the arrival of whites in America as “an invasion and colonization with legalized occupation, genocide, economic exploitation and … racism”, and some church leaders called for “a year of repentance and reflection rather than a year of celebration.”In stark contrast, the Christian's holy writ, the bible, is embarrassingly blunt In its support of colonialism and expropriation. It makes rash promises “to drive out nations, mightier than you, and to give you their land as an inheritance” (Deut 4:38). It also condones slavery and admonishes slaves to “count their own masters worthy of all honor” (1 Tim 6:1).The bible then goes on to assure its adherents that “those who trust in Christ will never be put to shame” (Rom 9:22), and that Christian believers “will refute every tongue that accuses them” (Isa 54:17). Refute every accusation? It's got to be kidding right? All the way from the National Council of Churches on down, not only Christians but the entire Western world is beset on every side with unanswerable accusations of having plundered the planet. The Third World lets us know in no uncertain terms that the very reason we are rich is because they are poor. We moved in uninvited, and raped continents, stole their assets and impoverished the legal inhabitants, denying them of their sacred right to prosper on their own. What can we say? It's all true; we did colonize the world and we did place millions in slavery, which anyone will tell you is a defacto no no right?Never be put to shame? Isn't the truth so very different. We sit with our mouths full of teeth, and shift our weight from one foot to the other as we buckle under the barrage of accusations declaring our guilt. We squirm at being caught with both hands still in the cookie jar. So just what was it those bible writers were smoking? How do we reconcile patent biblical arrogance on the one hand, with present day naked facts on the other? Do we just try to ignore and gloss over the incriminatingly rash remarks, or do we face up to them bravely and confess that quite obviously “mistakes were made” with the script, and are simply a product of the culture of that ancient time and hence best disregarded. But if this is so, what about the idea that the bible does not contain mistakes, and is good for application to all cultures at all times? It's a nettle that has stared us in the face for hundreds of years, and it has been too prickly to grasp or explain away in all that time. How do you feel about being Christian and white and rich and guilty? Would you like to have the answers to this dilemma so as to be able to feel proud about being a Christian and proud of the bible you believe in? Wouldn't it be nice to heave a sigh of relief and be able to say “Ahah! At last. The answer. At last, a logical and rational explanation that reconciles two deeply antithethical issues. Finally, an end to the loose ends, an end to the pieces that simply don't fit, and at last an end to the knot in my gut.” And even better, the solution gives no cause for offence to the have-nots. There is no arrogant suppression of the facts that disregards the interests of any party. There is no racism. Read this book. In plain and simple language, it will put all the answers in your hands.

The Middle East is almost never off the front pages, yet most Americans know little about the region. Why? The mainstream media and Ivy League academics, instead of helping, only make matters worse by casting everything in the usual politically correct mold: Arab terrorists are just desperate freedom fighters, and the region's one free democracy -- Israel -- is the oppressor, not least because of its alliance with America. And if Islamic extremism is a problem, the establishment tells us, it's only because it's rooted in that source of all evils: religion. A different strain of political correctness has seeped into some minds on the right -- most notably the Bush administration, which, so ready to buy into the egalitarian myths we are all taught, believed that Western-style democracy could flourish anywhere. Now, in The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Middle East, veteran Middle East correspondent Martin Sieff puts the lie to all these myths and clichés, giving you everything you need to know about the region to understand its past, its present, and its possible future.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design

Darwin is an emperor who has no clothes— but it takes a brave man to say so. Jonathan Wells, a microbiologist with two Ph.D.s (from Berkeley and Yale), is that brave man. Most textbooks on evolution are written by Darwinists with an ideological ax to grind. Brave dissidents—qualified scientists—who try to teach or write about intelligent design are silenced and sent to the academic gulag. But fear not: Jonathan Wells is a liberator. He unmasks the truth about Darwinism— why it is wrong and what the real evidence is. He also supplies a revealing list of "Books You’re Not Supposed to Read" (as far as the Darwinists are concerned) and puts at your fingertips all the evidence you need to challenge the most closed-minded Darwinist.
