"All of us teach." So begins this powerful collection presented by Mark Schwehn. If we take seriously the lessons in Teaching and Learning, then our lives will begin to change because our attitudes about the basic daily activities of teaching and learning will be transformed.We need a rich account of good teaching, not just the classroom variety but the activity that is part of our everyday relationships. If we do not develop that account now, Schwehn fears we will lose our capacity to fully understand teaching and learning and their historical and human importance.To meet that need, Schwehn has wisely chosen to focus our attention on great teachers in the act of teaching and on their students in the act of learning. He challenges us, based on those images and the ideas they generate, to question our assumptions about ourselves and others as everyday teachers and learners, and about our methods and purposes both inside and outside the classroom.The reader can explore an impressive array of texts and teachers, including Socrates, St. Augustine, the Old and New Testaments, Lincoln, Wittgenstein, Nietzsche, and James Joyce. Schwehn also includes excerpts from the Desert Fathers and Hassidic Masters. All the texts open our eyes to a wider and deeper view of teaching and learning.

It may seem a surprising claim, but some of the most brilliant and original critics of modernity have been shaped by Christianity. In Subversive Orthodoxy, Robert Inchausti maps out a tradition of twentieth century thinkers-including philosophers, activists, and novelists-whose "unique contributions to secular thought derive from their Christian worldviews." Inchausti revisits the lives and work of a stunning array of well-known Christian thinkers as well as figures not often thought of as Christian. From Walker Percy to Dorothy Day, Jacques Ellul to Marshall McLuhan, Inchausti offers a fascinating who's who of what he calls the "orthodox avant-garde." Subversive Orthodoxy will be an informative and encouraging read for pastors, laypeople, and students concerned about the Christian response to secular ideologies.

This book examines how the spiritual longings of ordinary people have shaped the most progressive political and cultural movements of the twentieth century and given birth to a new postmodern perspective on existence that recoups the traditional religious verities on the far side of both literary modernism and neo-Marxism. Inchausti focuses on figures who have been instrumental in defending the sacred traditions of indigenous cultures and oppressed minorities. He demonstrates that Mahatma Gandhi, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Elie Wiesel, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, and Lech Walesa share an ethic that is, at once, plebeian in origin and yet sublime in aspiration.

Thomas Merton was one of the most significant American spiritual writers of the twentieth century. His autobiography, The Seven Storey Mountain, published shortly after the Second World War, inspired an entire generation to reconsider the materialist preoccupations of consumer society. Twenty years later, his essays on nonviolence, contemplation, and Zen provided the most telling orthodox religious response to the New Left's radical critique of post-industrial society. In Thomas Merton's American Prophecy, Robert Inchausti provides a succinct summary and original interpretation of Merton's contribution to American thought. More than just a critical biography, this book lifts Merton out of the isolation of his monastic sub-culture and brings him back into dialogue with contemporary secular thinkers. In the process, it reopens one of the roads not taken at that fateful, cultural crossroads called "The Sixties". Inchausti presents Merton not as the spokesman for any particular group, cause, or idea, but rather as the quintessential American outsider who defined himself in opposition to the world, then discovered a way back into dialogue with that world and compassion for it. As a result, Merton was the harbinger of a still yet to be realized eschatological counter-culture: the unacknowledged precursor, alternative, and heir to Norman O. Brown's defense of mystery in the life of the mind.
