Natural theology is the project of articulating, defending and CntlClzmg arguments for the existence and nature of God without the aid of special revelation. Philosophical theology, which employs the rational methods of natural theology, is not restricted to premises that are discernible through observation and reason; it may rightly employ premises that are knowable through special revelation. While the project of natural theology may be construed as an attempt to demonstrate God's existence, one cannot ignore the importance of using reason or experience to understand, determine or assess attributes. One will want to know at the conclusion of a proof in natural God's theology if one has proved the existence of God and not merely the prim urn mobilum, source of moral obligation or a committee of finite designers; while God may be the prime mover and designer of the cosmos, none of these attributes alone is sufficient for making a claim to divinity. It is, therefore, difficult to distinguish sharply the project of natural theology from philosophi cal theology. The project of classical natural theology has been the attempt to prove God's existence and nature with arguments that employ premises that all rational creatures are obliged to accept.

ÒThe daily grind,Ó Òthe treadmill,Ó Òback to the salt mines.Ó The very words so many of us use to describe our work and our lives show a deep discontent. Why? And is there a way out? Art Gish says yes, there is - simplicity. Simplify your wants, your life style, your concerns and the way is open to a fuller, more rewarding life - infinitely rich in joy. But, Gish does not advocate the fake simplicity of the hippy, or the martyrdom of the ascetic. He suggests a true application of the things of the world as well as of the spirit, a radical change in goals and values. Practical as well as inspirational, Art Gish presents specific techniques for simplifying your life as you live it now - ways and means which are well within the reach of every one who wants to live their life - ÒBeyond The Rat Race.Ó

Christian Plain Style is a historical survey of the origins, growth, and decline of "the plain style," a mode of rhetorical discourse that reflected the mode of expression exemplified by Christ. Peter Auksi draws on an impressive array of classical, biblical, patristic, medieval, and Renaissance primary sources to explain this complex ideal of spiritualized rhetoric.
The third approach that is typical of Modesty is the one that produces a pure
passage, which is the same as the one that creates Simplicity. One who wants to

Cecil Wooten has produced the first translation into any modern langauage of a key treatise of the ancient world. He provides a faithful English translation of Hermogenes' analysis based on a reliable Greek text established by Rabe at the beginning of this century and includes a substantial scholarly introduction and notes that will help the reader better understand Hermogenes, his exposition, and the historical and cultural context in which it was produced. Hermogenes' work is both systematic and complex. He outlines, with almost mathematical precision, seven basic types of ideal forms of style -- Clarity, Grandeur, Beauty, Rapidity, Character, Sincerity, and Force -- some of which he breaks down into subtypes. Wooten explains how the stylistic system works, what it has in common with other systems developed in antiquity, and the special problems it presents to the translator. Wooten also provides two short essays. The first compares the system of stylistic analysis developed by Hermogenes with those of earlier critics, in particular Cicero and Dionysius of Halicarnassus. A single passage of Demosthenes is analyzed according to these three systems in order to illustrate how Hermogenes' system best captures its subtleties and nuances. The second essay discusses Hermogenes' concept of panegyric oratory and how it relates to the larger problem of secondary rhetoric. This translation makes On Types of Style accessible to classicists as well as Byzantinists, students and scholars of the Renaissance, rhetoricians, and, more broadly, students of literary criticism at any level.
