Liberal Studies: An Outline Course, Volume 1 covers subjects that are less specific nature, but things that are interesting and important just the same. This book is composed of nine chapters, and begins with an important argument on why to maintain interests in liberal studies and related fields. Considerable chapters highlight the fundamental importance of some fields, including education, history, law, justice, patriotism, and nationalism. A chapter deals with the controversial issue of pacifism. The final chapters consider the issues and relevant questions concerning the relationship between scientific teachings and Christianity, including issues on creation, miracles, and purpose of life. These chapters also look into the concept of truth and the nature of reality. Each chapter contains discussion points and exercises. This book will prove useful to liberal science teachers and students, as well as the general public.
