We human beings had no say in existing—we just opened our eyes and found ourselves here. We have a fundamental need to understand who we are and the world we live in. Reason takes us a long way, but mystery remains. When our minds and senses are baffled, faith can seem justified—but faith is not knowledge. In Ultimate Questions, acclaimed philosopher Bryan Magee provocatively argues that we have no way of fathoming our own natures or finding definitive answers to the big questions we all face. With eloquence and grace, Magee urges us to be the mapmakers of what is intelligible, and to identify the boundaries of meaningfulness. He traces this tradition of thought to his chief philosophical mentors—Locke, Hume, Kant, and Schopenhauer—and shows why this approach to the enigma of existence can enrich our lives and transform our understanding of the human predicament. As Magee puts it, "There is a world of difference between being lost in the daylight and being lost in the dark." The crowning achievement to a distinguished philosophical career, Ultimate Questions is a deeply personal meditation on the meaning of life and the ways we should live and face death.

We are often inclined to seek the assistance of professional authorities during a time of crisis, such as a conflict of conscience, anxiety and impaired self-esteem, inability to feel part of a complex and confusing world, or the troubling insecurity engendered by our own fallible coping strategies. Finding easy answers to challenging questions and problems is not an effective way to alleviate physical, spiritual, or psychological distress. The Vulnerable Self: Confronting the Ultimate Questions is a courageous book about the quality of human existence as it relates to the significance of suffering and the value of being alive. Dr. Avery Weisman, an esteemed psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, compassionately articulates our courageous and sometimes skeptical search for an authentic self. He contends that a major obstacle is a person's propensity to suffer needlessly, caused by a failure to recognize and deal objectively with underlying fundamental questions, which Dr. Weisman labels "metaproblems". These include, in particular, the meaning of meaning; the justification of physical and spiritual deterioration; the need for morale and courage; and the motivations behind inevitable negotiations with our mortality. Dr. Weisman empathetically points out the universality of vulnerability, and how we can confront and understand the problems that haunt and undermine our existence. With rare wisdom and awareness of the traumas of the human condition, he thoughtfully characterizes the reader as a "pilgrim" whose existential search is likely to bring about isolation from the conventional values of society. The pilgrim's solitary journey begins when he or she is ready to take the initial steps ofsurrendering entrenched patterns of denial and self-deception by realizing that despair and the inability to cope are not inevitable but submerged motivations. The Vulnerable Self is a unique and inspiring work which offers true and authentic insight to lay readers of all spiritual persuasions, as well as to psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers, nurses, members of the clergy, and gerontologists.

‘This volume is likely to become the stimulus for more than one series of sermons . . . More importantly, it may well stimulate its readers to live life now and die well because they have learned to live with eternity in view, cherishing the blessed promises and consolations of the gospel of Jesus Christ’ (D. A. Carson). Significant aspects of death and the afterlife continue to be debated among evangelical Christians. Paul Williamson surveys the perspectives of our contemporary culture and the biblical world, and then highlights the traditional understanding of the biblical perspective and the issues over which evangelicals have become increasingly polarized. Subsequent chapters explore the controversial areas: what happens immediately after we die; bodily resurrection; a final, universal judgment; the ultimate fate of those who do not receive God’s approval on the last day; and the biblical concept of an eschatological ‘heaven’. Taking care to understand the ancient Near Eastern and Greco-Roman backgrounds, Williamson works through the most important Old and New Testament passages. He demonstrates that there is considerable exegetical support for the traditional evangelical understanding of death and the afterlife, and raises questions about the basis for the growing popularity of alternative understandings.
