"The high priests of atheism really have no clothes." So says Jonas E. Alexis. He takes the atheists and skeptics on the ground they cherish most-logical consistency and experiential relevance. He believes we are living in a time when thinking people believe the unthinkable, the unreasonable, and the unimaginable. In the name of "knowledge" and "wisdom," many intellectuals, atheists, and skeptics embrace irrational ideas. In the Name of Knowledge and Wisdom challenges those ideas. He takes the atheists, skeptics, and critics of Christianity to task for believing the impossible about Christianity. Armed with simple logic and common sense, Alexis demolishes the atheist position and points the way to Christianity. This book is for anyone who has questions about the new "golden age" of atheism. Furthermore, the book also provides a strong critique of the nihilism that is quite rampant in our pop culture. Ultimately, the book shows that if God is dead, as the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche proposed in the nineteenth century, then anything is permitted. Jonas E. Alexis has a bachelor's degree in mathematics and a master's degree in education. He is a math teacher in Florida. His first book in this trilogy is In the Name of Education, and the third book will be Education's Dangerous Idea. It is tentatively scheduled to be released in the winter of 2009. "Alexis has written an important book." -Don DeYoung, Ph.D. in physics Chairman of the Department of Physical Science at Grace College Author of Astronomy and the Bible "In the Name of Education is not only worth reading, it is worth believing, worth heeding, and most important, worth acting upon." -Dr. David A. Noebel, best-sellingauthor of Understanding the Times "Alexis has certainly done a block of research." -Paul Sperry, author of Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives have Penetrated Washington "In the Name of Education is excellent and rich with solidly documented information. For me, any book of social criticism needs to be fully attributed so that I can validate both the quote and the author's interpretation. This book accomplishes that mission. It is clearly written." -Judith A. Reisman, Ph.D., author of Kinsey: Crimes and Consequences: The Red Queen and the Grand Scheme "In the Name of Education documents the weird and dangerous ideas that have put generations of Americans at risk, even as it points the way back toward genuine intellectual and moral reform." -Jim Nelson Black, Ph.D., author of Freefall of the American University
