In this entertaining and challenging collection of logic puzzles, Raymond Smullyan - author of Forever Undecided - continues to delight and astonish us with his gift for making available, in the thoroughly pleasurable form of puzzles, some of the most important mathematical thinking of our time.In the first part of the book, he transports us once again to that wonderful realm where knights, knaves, twin sisters, quadruplet brothers, gods, demons, and mortals either always tell the truth or always lie, and where truth-seekers are set a variety of fascinating problems. The section culminates in an enchanting and profound metapuzzle in which Inspector Craig of Scotland Yard gets involved in a search for the Fountain of Youth on the Island of Knights and Knaves.In the second part of To Mock a Mockingbird, we accompany the Inspector on a summer-long adventure into the field of combinatory logic (a branch of logic that plays an important role in computer science and artificial intelligence). His adventure, which includes enchanted forests, talking birds, bird sociologists, and a classic quest, provides for us along the way the pleasure of solving puzzles of increasing complexity until we reach the Master Forest and - thanks to Godel's famous theorem -the final revelation.

You Believe God Can Still Do Miracles, But How Do You Know Which Stories Are True?A blind man suddenly sees. A lame man gets up and walks. A little boy is raised from the dead. You believe the biblical accounts that these miracles happened, but do you believe eye-witness reports that miracles still happen today? Between shady faith-healers, weeping madonnas, and gimmicks like holy land water, it's difficult--even foolish--to believe every miracle account we hear. So how do we discount the fakes without missing out on the real miracles in the process? Award-winning journalist Tim Stafford shares captivating stories of modern-day miracles, wrestling over what is credible and what isn't. But more than that, he offers wisdom and insight to help you figure out the role miracles should play in your faith. Should you expect miracles? Ignore them? Pray for them? How active is God in the world today? And could he be more active in your own life? Learn how to explore these questions with wisdom and honesty, growing your faith and hope along the way.Tim Stafford puts the right person at the center of miracle stories: not the charismatic leader through whom miracles come, nor the person who is healed, but God himself. This book will help you see genuine miracles as part of God's way of telling his own story, and will teach you to listen for what God is saying through them.--David Neff, Editor in Chief, Christianity TodayVeteran journalist reports on the world of miracles with neither skepticism nor naivete but with clarity and reverent honesty. A remarkable achievement.--Eugene H. Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, B.C.Do you want to believe in miracles but have been put off either by Christians who insist that every problem should be solved by a miracle, or by the skepticism of God's miraculous intervention in human experience? Then this is your book! As a journalist, Stafford squarely faces and differentiates between actual occurrences of miracles and disappointing non-occurrences; as a Christian, he makes a conscious effort to be faithful to God's revelation in Scripture. The result is a book that will instruct you on how to think biblically about issues relating to miracles. The summary statements in the last two chapters alone are worth the price of the book.--Ajith Fernando, Teaching Director, Youth for Christ, Sri LankaTim Stafford dives headfirst into this investigation of those special events we call miracles--signs and wonders that demonstrate God's supernatural power. Probing, clarifying, and speaking to skeptics and believers alike, Stafford is thoroughly convincing as he digs deep to comment on biblical and contemporary examples.--Lucy Shaw, author, Breath for the Bones, What the Light Was LikeTim has taken one of the most important and fascinating topics in the world and written about it with honesty, faith, and grace. His look at miracles through history and across cultures is full of wisdom and longing. This book--if not actually miraculous itself--is at least providential.--John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Who Is This Man?When I started reading this fine book, I was what Tim Stafford labels a Semi-Believing Doubter on the subject of present-day miracles. I no longer wear that label. Miracles is a gripping--and convincing--account of how God continues to astonish us with signs of a power that will someday come into its fullness!--Richard J. Mouw, PhD, President and Professor of Christian Philosophy, Fuller Theological Seminary
