137. Book Review | Villains of the Early Church by Mike Aquilina

Wonder how the Church has addressed issues as they arise? If you want to learn more about the early heretics and persecutors the early Christians faced, this is an easy book to read.

“Every revolutionary ends up either by becoming an oppressor or a heretic.”

Albert Camus

What I enjoy, besides learning the history, is to see how ideas are addressed over and over. We have a lot of interesting ideas popping up in our culture that challenge established truths. This book shows how to dissect why something is wrong, explain that, and show why the truth holds. I think we need more of this, and it offers many examples of this process while under duress.

In a world of Cancel Culture and a stomping out of ideas against leftist orthodoxy, it is important to realize the complex relationships heretics had. Often, we’re told they’re a victim, but many times throughout history they use untruths and force to push against those speaking hard-to-handle truths.

165. Book Review | Shocking Secrets of American History by Bill Coate Conversation of Our Generation

In keeping with this week's episode on history, I decided to bring out a book from my library on history to review today. In this episode, we'll look at some of the secrets of history from this book. Basically, this book is a collection of short stories that many may not know about American history. Despite being a history buff, I hadn't heard many of the stories, so I think there's a lot of learning for anyone. Tune into this episode, I'll show you why you should pick up your copy. "It's a very good historical book about history." Dan Quayle Grab your copy of Shocking Secrets of American History by Bill Coate "History's like a story in a way: it depends on who's telling it." -Dorothy Salisbury Davis Some Shocking Secrets of History How much about history do you really know? Did you know about Aaron Burr's debauchery? How about John Edwards' wayward grand nephew? If you want to learn incredible stories about our past, this book is where you want to look. In fact, some of the stories are truly unbelievable. Despite that, these did happen, and I think you'd be amazed by some of these stories. It's definitely important to know the broad themes and movements of history. However, these little stories are great to know as well, and can make for a great way to get people interested in history. Why History is Important to Learn History is a part of our heritage, and it's important to know where we come from. Furthermore, knowing history allows us to identify solutions in our current situation. There's a common saying that those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it, and that's true. Most importantly, it offers us the knowledge we need to make decisions about our world. This is because it puts things in perspective by broadening our frame of reference. — This episode is sponsored by ยท Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/support
