+  Five Proofs of the Existence of God

  • Description: "This book provides a detailed, updated exposition and defense of five of the historically most important (but in recent years largely neglected) philosophical proofs of God’s existence: the Aristotelian, the Neo-Platonic, the Augustinian, the Thomistic, and the Rationalist. It also offers a thorough treatment of each of the key divine attributes—unity, simplicity, eternity, omnipotence, omniscience, perfect goodness, and so forth—showing that they must be possessed by the God whose existence is demonstrated by the proofs. Finally, it answers at length all of the objections that have been leveled against these proofs."

+  We're Not in Kansas Anymore: TV Fantasy Study

  • Description: "Children are innately attracted to entertainment with fantasy or fairy-tale themes. In recent years, America’s broadcast networks have featured a number of programs with such themes, but which included content that made the programs inappropriate and unsafe for child viewers. In this study, the PTC examined fantasy-themed prime-time programming on the major broadcast networks during November, February, and May “sweeps” periods from 2011- present. Programs examined were Grimm, Emerald City (NBC), Sleepy Hollow (Fox), and Once Upon a Time, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, and The Muppets (ABC)."
