Bible Understanding Made Easy is a series of books used to inspire and teach the Word of God to sincere souls trying to draw closer to God. This volume is dedicated to building understanding of the life of Jesus Christ as taught by the book of Matthew. The world has been intrigued by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ for nearly 2,000 years to this date. This is for good reason. He is a wonderful Lord and Savior. He is also the Master teacher. All mankind must know Him in order to be saved. Knowledge of His will for our lives brings peace and joy to ones soul. This work is dedicated to showing the world the peace and joy of Jesus Christ by a more in-depth study of who He is and what He offers to mankind. The method of teaching used in this book was purposely kept as simple as possible so that beginning students of the Bible can be inspired and build a rich foundation of understanding the Bible that will last a lifetime! This volume is more in-depth than the first installment of this series entitled Bible Understanding Made Easy, Volume 1: The Old Testament. This is because more time is devoted to studying verse-by-verse and small groups of verses. Lastly, as an added bonus, there are many life application style mini-lessons that Christians of today can use to help build faith, encourage, and inspire sincere folks to maintain a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

John Stuart Mill considered his A System of Logic, first published in 1843, the methodological foundation and intellectual groundwork of his later works in ethical, social, and political theory. Yet no book has attempted in the past to engage with the most important aspects of Mill's Logic. This volume brings together leading scholars to elucidate the key themes of this influential work, looking at such topics as his philosophy of language and mathematics, his view on logic, induction and deduction, free will, argumentation, ethology and psychology, as well as his account of normativity, kinds of pleasure, philosophical and political method and the "Art of Life."

For Reasoning Aficionados From All Walks of Life! This guidebook addresses one of the most critical yet seldom taught skills. Reasoning skills help us make sense of the world, including how to better make decisions, tackle opportunities, evaluate claims, and solve problems. Interwoven within the book’s five sections – Perception & Mindset, Decision Making, Creative Thinking, Analyzing Arguments, and Mastering Logic – reader’s will discover 50 reasoning tips that summarize the common themes behind classic reasoning problems and situations. Appendixes contain summaries of fallacious reasoning, analogies, trade-offs, and a review of critical reading skills. A wealth of examples, charts, and insightful problems makes The Little Blue Reasoning Book an invaluable guide for any individual wanting to further sharpen his or her thinking skills. Enjoy the benefits of your own self-paced reasoning course: *Gain insights into the four classic mindsets and how each influences one’s outlook. *Make better decisions by framing problems with quantitative tools. *Employ creative thinking to bypass “roadblocks” and unlock novel solutions. *Evaluate claims by challenging the strength of key assumptions. *Use logic to break down arguments in a clear, easy-to-understand manner. *Review the 10 classic trade-offs to speed recognition of core issues. *Read with added clarity, whether your goal involves pleasure or profit. “A wonderful work that shows how reasoning is challenging, yet engaging, rewarding and fun. Because reasoning involves people, it is an art as well as a science. And to remind ourselves just why it’s not always easy to mix the two, we owe a cheerful salute to Nobel prize-winning physicist Murray Gell-Mann who observed: ‘Think how hard physics would be if particles could think.’” —Dr. William A. McEachern, author, award-winning teacher, and founding editor of The Teaching Economist
