Using the 'Rule Of Threes' there are three benefits from studying Poetry. First, a lot is said within a concise group of words. Second, we enjoy both the practical and emotional value of the combination of the words. Third, we have the therapeutic aspect. Millions of people around the world write or recite poems and prayers as a daily meditation. Our focus on poetry lets us CONCENTRATE on the message, meditate and only think of today. We have the daily reminder to remain calm and to give ourselves renewed direction. Our thoughts are often strong enough for us to want to write. Our words force themselves out and we feel relieved to express them in poetic form. We learn by copying the style of other poets and make use of the simple suggestions to use our own style. Go on! Give it a try.

The Story of Electricity

he Story of Electricity was written to tell people how our present knowledge of it grew up. Prospective readers may fall into three categories. First those with an Arts background and no knowledge of Science. Secondly those with a background of Science outside Physics. And thirdly those with a background of Physics, but have no knowledge of the history of electricity. To accommodate all three of these categories the book has been written with no mathematics. The order of presentation is chronological. Thus in B.C. times the effects of magnetism were of commercial importance for sea voyaging. But today the ubiquity of radio has emphasised the greater importance of electricity. Since historically advances have been made largely by individuals, their family and religious backgrounds have been recorded as important factors in their contributions. Following World War II this situation has been reversed, because of the funding requirements of global markets. But future progress may again revert to individuals.


The Christian Teachings of Charles Kinglsey

The moral purpose of Charles Kingsley's novels is pronounced because he was a preacher, and more specifically, a teacher. He was above all a preacher of stirring didactic sermons. It is the didactic content of his writings-in his sermons, his novels, and his essays on natural theology-which is the study of this work. One too often forgets that Kingsley was not, in the first instance, a social and political reformer. As a preacher, and as a writer, he was pre-eminently a teacher-a theologian, yes, but more importantly, a Christian didactician. He was not an evangelical preacher, yet the Christian gospel was at the heart of his teachings and his moral exhortations. This work attempts to look at the Christian message that was the inspiration behind his socio-religious gospel. Writing at the time of Charles Darwin, Kingsley saw no reason to lose his sound Christian faith with the emergence of Darwin's theory of evolution. Instead, he could accept it as a means to a divine end, another example of how Providence might bring about the Kingdom of God on earth.
