"I know of no religious writer more pertinent to our time."--T. S. Eliot

Compiled after his death in 1662, Pascal's "pensées" (thoughts) are his ideas for a book in
defense of faith in a rational world. These fragments give evidence of a profoundly original
thinker who had resolved the conflict between his scientific mind and heart-felt faith.

The book begins with an analysis of the difference between mathematical and intuitive thinking
and goes on to consider the value of skepticism, contradictions, feeling, memory and imagination.
Much of the value of the Pensées results from the clarity with which Pascal was able to
present his intuitive thoughts.

Pascal spent much of his life composing this magnum opus, which offers some of the most powerful
aphorisms about human experience and behavior ever written.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cant do that as much as wed like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Its a common problem and its the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
