Moral Ground

by Kathleen Dean Moore, Moral Ground Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Moral Ground books, Moral Ground brings together the testimony of over eighty visionaries—theologians and religious leaders, scientists, elected officials, business leaders, naturalists, activists, and writers—to present a diverse and compelling call to honor our individual and collective moral responsibility to our planet. In the face of environmental degradation and global climate change, scientific knowledge alone does not tell us what we ought to do. The missing premise of the argument and much-needed center piece in the debate to date has been the need for ethical values, moral guidance, and principled reasons for doing the right thing for our planet, its animals, its plants, and its people. Contributors from throughout the world (including North America, Africa, Australia, Asia, and Europe) bring forth a rich variety of heritages and perspectives. Their contributions take many forms, illustrating the rich variety of ways we express our moral beliefs in letters, poems, economic analyses, proclamations, essays, and stories. In the end, their voices affirm why we must move beyond a scientific study and response to embrace an ongoing model of repair and sustainability. These writings demonstrate that scientific analysis and moral conviction can work successfully side-by-side. This is a book that can speak to anyone, regardless of his or her worldview, and that also includes a section devoted to “what next” thinking that helps the reader put the words and ideas into action in their personal lives. Thanks to generous support from numerous landmark organizations, such as the Kendeda Fund and Germeshausen Foundation, the book is just the starting point for a national, and international, discussion that will be carried out in a variety of ways, from online debate to “town hall” meetings, from essay competitions for youth to sermons from pulpits in all denominations. The “Moral Ground movement” will result in a newly discovered, or rediscovered, commitment on a personal and community level to consensus about our ethical obligation to the future.

Venna S Planet Book Three Peril In Prime City

by Robin Evans, Venna S Planet Book Three Peril In Prime City Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Venna S Planet Book Three Peril In Prime City books, In this final book of the first set of her adventures on the planet that has been named Promise, Venna continues in her efforts to find the place called Prime City in the hope of locating and rescuing her friend, Shelly, whose part in the story comes to the fore at last. Skullduggery, passion, murder, comedy, redemption, romance, evil science, interplanetary conflict... all these things are here, to varying degrees, but in no special order. Venna continues to be obsessively pursued by The Countess, who is, in turn, being pursued by the authorities; but everything points to a terrible fate for our heroine, unless her friends can rescue her in time... or she can rescue herself. Peril in Prime City is, like the first two books, about some fairly ordinary people dumped down in an extraordinary world. Venna has no super-powers (although sometimes she thinks she may have), she just uses her natural bravery and such strength as she has to cope with the ordeals she finds herself facing. This set of adventures sees her suffering some very unpleasant and frightening experiences, but she keeps her cool and, as usual, bounces back, ready for the next challenge. With a few possible exceptions among the characters, Venna is loved by everyone, and this may be what gives her the strength to keep going when things get very, very bad. Inspired by pre-war film serials, classic newspaper comic strips and pulp magazine cover art, this excellent graphic novel from respected artist Robin Evans is a must-have addition to the bookshelf of any classic sci-fi fan.
