The first semester at Hembree Elementary School was filled with intrigue and mystery as three mischievous fifth grade boys learned a valuable lesson about themselves. The first-year school, under the supervision of the disciplined, yet encouraging principal Mrs. Silly-Willie, had a bizarre situation where electric pencil sharpeners were missing. The boys, along with their female classmates, had an interesting winter, too. A mystifying mural, created by an enigmatic artist Magi, catapulted the students into a fantastic world where fantasy and reality were difficult to tell apart. Now, with spring fresh in the air, Mr. Puffy's class participates with a partner school across town in the district-wide science fair. The group of students creates a most unusual project. This project catapults them into a yet another captivating adventure where their writing and reasoning skills will be significantly challenged.

Open-mindedness in Philosophy of Religion

In a free society, it is common to hear the request that one ‘keep an open mind.’ Just what exactly is it, however, to keep an open-mind? How does open-mindedness function? How does it square with important personal commitments? These issues are particularly acute when it comes to matters of religious belief in which open-mindedness can sound to the pious a bit too much like doubt. Certainly, in a discipline whose discourse remains rational dialogue, effort should be spent discerning the contours of this virtue, especially in light of its formal role in establishing responsiveness to new inquiries in matters philosophical and religious. This book provides a collection of essays serving to promote conversation about open-mindedness, its virtue (or lack thereof), and its role and application in problems in the philosophy of religion in particular.

Wright's new fantasy, which began with Orphans of Chaos, and continues in Fugitives of Chaos, is a tale about five orphans raised in a strict British boarding school who begin to discover that they may not be human beings. The students at the school do not age, while the world around them does. The orphans have been kidnapped from their true parents, robbed of their powers, and raised in ignorance by super-beings no more human than they are: pagan gods or fairy-queens, Cyclopes, sea-monsters, witches, or things even stranger. The five have made sinister discoveries about themselves. Amelia is apparently a fourth-dimensional being; Victor is a synthetic man who can control the molecular arrangement of matter around him; Vanity can find secret passageways through solid walls where none had previously been; Colin is a psychic; Quentin is a warlock. Each power comes from a different paradigm or view of the inexplicable universe: and they should not be able to co-exist under the same laws of nature. Why is it that they can? The children must experiment with and learn to control their strange abilities in order to escape their captors. Something very important must be at stake in their imprisonment.
