Not in My Name:A Compendium of Modern Hypocrisy Chas Newkey-Burden/ Julie Burchill
Eliot Rosewater, a drunk volunteer fireman and president of the fabulously rich Rosewater Foundation, is about to attempt a noble experiment with human nature, with a little help from writer Kilgore Trout. The result is Kurt Vonnegut´s funniest satire, an etched-in-acid portrayal of the greed, hypocrisy, and follies of the flesh we are all heir to. As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of Kurt Vonnegut´s book, you´ll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview. This interview – where James Atlas interviews Gay Talese about the life and work of Kurt Vonnegut – begins as soon as the audiobook ends. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric Michael Summerer.

Audie Award, Literary Fiction, 2009Elmer Gantry is the portrait of a silver-tongued evangelist who rises to power within his church, yet lives a life of hypocrisy, sensuality, and ruthless self-indulgence. The title character starts out as a greedy, shallow, philandering Baptist minister, turns to evangelism, and eventually becomes the leader of a large Methodist congregation. Throughout the novel, Gantry encounters fellow religious hypocrites. Although often exposed as a fraud, Gantry is never fully discredited.Elmer Gantry is considered a landmark American novel and one of the most penetrating studies of hypocrisy in modern literature. It portrays the evangelistic activity that was common in 1920s America as well as attitudes toward it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anthony Heald.

Eight anarchists were subsequently tried for murder. ´´Anarchism and Other Essays´´ is a collection of essays first published in 1911.

Here at last is a history of England that is designed to entertain as well as inform and that will delight the armchair traveler, the tourist, or just about anyone interested in history. No people have engendered quite so much acclaim or earned so much censure as the English: extolled as the Athenians of modern times, yet hammered for their self-satisfaction and hypocrisy. But their history has been a spectacular one. The guiding principle of this book´s heretical approach is that ´´history is not everything that happened but what is worth remembering about the past´´. Thus its chapters deal mainly with ´´Memorable History´´ in blocks of time over the centuries. The final chapter, ´´The Royal Soap Opera´´, recounts the achievements, personalities, and idiocies of the royal family since the arrival of William the Conqueror in 1066. English History will be a welcome and amusing tour of a land that has always fascinated Anglophiles and Anglophobes alike. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Noble.

Christian Thinking is one of the greatest literary threats to the theory of evolution ever written. It is also one of the greatest threats to centuries old religious dogma that has suppressed the light of truth by means of pagan teachings that have sickened modern-day society with its falsehood, hypocrisy, and clear bias.This book is designed to open your mind, not tell you how or what to think. You listen. You reason. You decide. In doing so, you will see for yourself - without prejudice or rhetoric - that today´s conventional theology is primarily based on tradition and religious bias in translation, not enlightened truth.Now, after centuries of preconceived ideas, anyone can see for themselves the biblical truths to set them free! This will be the dawn of a spiritual awakening and true liberation for many. Don’t be afraid to explore the truth. Embrace it!In a world of spiritual indigestion, where people are being fed unhealthy ideas and no longer know what information is worth assimilating or why it is still important to know biblical truth, each Christian must be able to reason for himself so that he or she can choose to digest spiritual truths, become spiritually healthy, and learn to thrive in a world where past beliefs had made them ill.Listen and see for yourself what Christian Thinking can do for you! Christian Thinking is truly for thinking Christians who love truth and desire to be solid in their faith. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin McAdams.
