📒But What If We Re Wrong ✍ Chuck Klosterman
📝But What If We re Wrong Book Synopsis : New York Times bestselling author Chuck Klosterman asks questions that are profound in their simplicity: How certain are we about our understanding of gravity? How certain are we about our understanding of time? What will be the defining memory of rock music, five hundred years from today? How seriously should we view the content of our dreams? How seriously should we view the content of television? Are all sports destined for extinction? Is it possible that the greatest artist of our era is currently unknown (or—weirder still—widely known, but entirely disrespected)? Is it possible that we “overrate” democracy? And perhaps most disturbing, is it possible that we’ve reached the end of knowledge? Klosterman visualizes the contemporary world as it will appear to those who'll perceive it as the distant past. Kinetically slingshotting through a broad spectrum of objective and subjective problems, But What If We’re Wrong? is built on interviews with a variety of creative thinkers—George Saunders, David Byrne, Jonathan Lethem, Kathryn Schulz, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Brian Greene, Junot Díaz, Amanda Petrusich, Ryan Adams, Nick Bostrom, Dan Carlin, and Richard Linklater, among others—interwoven with the type of high-wire humor and nontraditional analysis only Klosterman would dare to attempt. It’s a seemingly impossible achievement: a book about the things we cannot know, explained as if we did. It’s about how we live now, once “now” has become “then.” From the Hardcover edition.

📒They Say You Are Saved ✍ Marty Vanderzanden
📝They Say You Are Saved Book Synopsis : Many Christian churches teach that salvation is as easy as acknowledging to God that you are a sinner and then saying a beautiful prayer about your belief in Jesus Christ. They say at that moment you will receive the Holy Spirit, be born again, and become a new creation. After completing this, they also say you are now in the Christian family and will live with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit in heaven for all of eternity, regardless of how you live your life from that point on. For author Marty Vanderzanden, this teaching never sat well in his heart. He has always wondered if there was more to gaining entrance to heaven than just saying a prayer. In They Say You Are Saved, Vanderzanden examines and highlights what Jesus says about our entrance into heaven. A series of short stories and lessons delivered by God, They Say You Are Saved discusses the importance of developing an intimate bond with and having faith in Jesus Christ, as well as living your life as if you believe. Including a short Bible study, Vanderzanden encourages you to make your relationship with Jesus Christ a top priority.

📒Achievement ✍ Gwen Bradford
📝Achievement Book Synopsis : From the magisterial to the mundane, achievements play a role in the best kind of human life, and many people think that they are of such importance that they are worth pursuing at the expense of serious sacrifices. Yet for all that, no philosophers have devoted more than a few short passages to discerning what makes achievements valuable, or even what makes something an achievement to begin with. Gwen Bradford presents the first systematic account of what achievements are, and what it is about them that makes them worth doing. It turns out that more things count as achievements than we might have thought, and that what makes them valuable isn't something we usually think of as good. It turns out that difficulty, perhaps surprisingly, plays a central part in characterizing achievements and their value: achievements are worth the effort. But just what does it mean for something to be difficult, and why is it valuable? A thorough analysis of the nature of difficulty is given, and ultimately, the best account of the value of achievements taps into perfectionist axiology. But not just any perfectionist theory of value will do, and in this book we see a new perfectionist theory developed that succeeds in capturing the value of achievement better than its predecessors.
