The tragedy of American compassion by Marvin N Olasky( Book )

24 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It's time we realized that there is only so much that public policy can do. That only a richness of spirit can battle a poverty of soul. The century-old question--does any given scheme of help ... make great demands on men to give themselves to their brethren?--is still the right one to ask. Most of our 20th-century schemes have failed. It's time to learn from the warm hearts and hard heads of the 19th-century."--Jacket

Compassionate conservatism : what it is, what it does, and how it can transform America by Marvin N Olasky( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Compassionate conservatism offers a new paradigm for how the government can and should intervene in the economy. It begins with a long-lost premise about human behavior: economics, by itself, is not what changes lives. Only faith, and deeply held beliefs, can do that. For decades government has focused only on material well-being, ignoring the passions and convictions that make life worth living. What is conservative about the new movement is that its leaders also know that government cannot instill these beliefs. What it can do is help them flourish. It can give aid, inspiration, and direction to America's natural "armies of compassion" that have been a hallmark of our history since the founding."--Jacket
Renewing American compassion by Marvin N Olasky( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a ringing call to churches, community leaders, and ordinary citizens, Marvin Olasky points the way to a reinvented War on Poverty and a renewal of faith-based charity. Only in recent decades have we relegated compassion to the government and lost touch with the poor. We can do much better. In Renewing American Compassion, Olasky reminds us that the original meaning of compassion is "suffering with": from this definition, he constructs an entirely new framework for helping the needy

Olasky looks closely at the connections between religion, sexual practices, and political decisions, examining the repeated connections between private character and public action. He explains how so-called "compartmentalization" proved to be as impossible for Lincoln as for Woodrow Wilson."--Jacket

Central ideas in the development of American journalism : a narrative history by Marvin N Olasky( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book narrates the history of those macrostories in American journalism from its European beginnings in the 16th and 17th century (my starting point is Martin Luther's editorial on the cathedral door in 1517) up through 1917, when the impact of the Russian Revolution began to open up a new phase in journalistic perceptions. Along the way we take a fresh look at Greeley, Pulitzer, and other legends of journalism history, and we also recall long-forgotten figures such as John Stubbes, an English Puritan who in 1579 wrote a pamphlet criticizing Queen Elizabeth. Stubbes was punished by having his right hand "cut off by the blow of a Butcher's knife." A contemporary account tells of his amazing response: "John Stubbes, so soon as his right hand was off, put off his hat with the left, and cryed aloud, God save the Queene." Such bravery deserves to be remembered, and the motivation for such actions understood

Prodigal press : the anti-Christian bias of the American news media by Marvin N Olasky( Book )

8 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While claiming to be neutral, print and TV journalists often report the news from an anti-Christian point of view. Yet remarkably, in the nineteenth century many leading newspapers were Christian. What went wrong? Here is the revealing story of how American news media moved from a Christian worldview to materialist humanism. Professor and journalist Marvin Olasky examines the incredible impact this shift has had on what is covered and how it is covered. He offers practical, biblical solutions to problems of media ethics, news bias, sensationalism and crusading. - Back cover

More than kindness : a compassionate approach to crisis childbearing by Susan Olasky( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pro-life activists regularly hear the attacks from abortion advocates: 'You just want to punish women. You don't do anything to help children once they're born.' More Than Kindness lays out what Christians and other pro-lifers are doing to help women who choose life rather than abortion. The Olaskys show where new programs based on a Christian worldview are needed. Here are practical, Biblical solutions to the complex issues of single-parenting and adoption--and a positive, pro-life alternative to conventional wisdom.' More Than Kindness explodes the myth that the pro-life movement is not compassionate. I wish abortion rights supporters would have the courage to read it."--Dr. Robert P. Dugan, Jr., National Association of Evangelicals
Telling the truth : how to revitalize Christian journalism by Marvin N Olasky( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Telling the Truth is Dr. Olasky's valuable response to this charge from the noted theologian. In it he emphasizes both the philosophical and the practical: detailing the need for Christian journalists to have a well-developed worldview, and giving essential instruction to help them hone their writing, editing, and interviewing skills. The shortcomings of modern journalism are many. Too often evangelical publications, instead of exhibiting the journalistic excitement of the hunt, are content printing public-relations releases and carrying on their business in a joyless manner. But it doesn't have to be this way. Indeed, as Christians, it must not be this way! We are called to excellence; to do our work in such a way that it glorifies the Creator Himself. This incisive book not only urges journalists to grasp the significance of their purpose, but shows them how to more effectively accomplish it. As Olasky says, "If even fifty new, talented, biblically directed journalists were to emerge in America during the next few years, the revitalization of Christian journalism would be well under way."
