Do you doubt the existence of God because you think believing in God is irrational? This book will cause you to reexamine your doubts.

Rational Passover: Haggadah (Autographed Hardcover)
Why did God save the Jews in Egypt but not the millions of Jews who died in Europe? Was there really an Exodus? Does Judaism affirm an afterlife? Does reason? These and many other major questions are answered in Dennis Prager’s The Rational Passover Haggadah.
Dennis Prager’s five-volume The Rational Bible commentary on the Torah, widely considered one of the most important Bible commentaries ever written, was the #1 bestselling nonfiction book in America on the day of its publication—a rare achievement for a Bible commentary. Like The Rational Bible, The Rational Passover Haggadah relies on reason to explain the text. Therefore, it is as relevant and illuminating to non-Jews as to Jews, to atheists as to believers, and to secular Jews as to religious Jews. One need not attend a Seder to benefit from the many powerful insights offered. It could—and ought to—be read any time of the year. The table of contents lists the great variety of essays and topics for discussion that address some of the most important issues in life. The nearly two-thousand-year-old Haggadah has inspired millions around the world every year to learn about and relive one of the most famous stories of all time: the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt.

Happiness is a Serious Problem
We Are Completelely Satisfied with Nothing
There is a correlation between the circumstances of people’s lives and how happy they are.
This Is the Repair Manual We Should Have Been Handed at Birth
When you ask people about their most cherished values in life , “happiness” is always at the top of their list. However, unhappiness does not seem to be the exception today – it’s practically the rule. Why? Because human nature is insatiable. In order to be happy, we first have to battle ourselves.
Happiness is an obligation-to Yourself and to Others
Not only do we have the right to be happy, we have an obligation to be happy. Our happiness has an effect on the lives of everyone around us-it provides them with a positive enviroment in which to thrive and to be happy themselves.
Still the Best Hope
In this visionary book, Dennis Prager, one of America’s most original thinkers, contends that humanity confronts a monumental choice. The whole world must decide between American values and its two oppositional alternatives: Islamism and European-style democratic socialism.
Prager, a bestselling author, columnist, and nationally syndicated radio talk show host who is read and heard by millions of people in America and abroad-makes the case for the American value system as the most viable program ever devised to produce a good society. Those values are explained here more clearly and persuasively than ever before.
Prager, whose mantra on his SRN program is that he prefers “clarity over agreement”-could not be clearer when it comes to the subject of his newest book.
“There are three ideas – or religions, if you will – competing for humanity’s allegiance: Leftism, Islamism, and Americanism,” Prager says. In Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph, Prager argues that it is the American value system — what he calls “the American Trinity” – that is the best system ever devised for making a good society. He adds: “There is one thing the Left has excelled at over the last hundred years: demonizing its opponents. With few – actually, very few – exceptions, conservative talk radio has been overwhelmingly hate free. Take, for example, my Salem Radio colleagues – Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Janet Mefferd, Hugh Hewitt, and Michael Medved – and myself: Is even one of us a hate monger? To anyone who has ever listened to us, the question is absurd. All of us attack positions, rarely people, and never with expressions of hate.”
Still the Best Hope deals with three huge themes: The first is perhaps the most persuasive explanation for why Leftism has been and will always be a moral failure, despite its acknowledged appeal to many people of goodwill. The second explains why fundamentalist Islam, despite its historic and growing appeal, cannot make a good society. But Prager holds out hope for an open and tolerant Islam and explains why it will emerge from faithful American Muslims. The third is a singularly persuasive defense and explanation of what Prager calls the “American Trinity”: liberty, values rooted in the Creator, and the melting-pot ideal. These values are inscribed on every American coin as “Liberty,” “In God We Trust,” and “E Pluribus Unum,” and they are the reasons for America’s greatness. Without them, America will cease to be an exceptional nation, and therefore cease to be America.
Prager shows why these values can and must be adopted by every nation and culture in the world, why Americans must relearn and recommit to these values, and why America must vigorously export them. For if the world does not adopt American values, the result will be chaos and barbarism on an unprecedented scale.
Think a Second Time
Dennis Prager, theologian and philosopher turned talk-show host, is one of the most brilliant and compelling voices in America today. His extraordinarily popular radio show with the signature sign-off, “Think a second time,” coupled with his own biweekly newsletter, has firmly established him as a fixture in intellectual communities nationwide. In Think a Second Time, Prager blends a rigorous and scholarly education with utterly original thinking on current events, from the danger of idealism to the roots of extremism to his thoughts on God and an afterlife, Prager offers challenging answers to up-to-the-minute questions: Should a single woman have a child? Why don’t good homes always produce good children? Is America really racist? Why does the Holocaust not negate the existence of God? Now, with a new section on the precedent-setting “Baby Richard” custody case and an exploration of the issues of blood versus love, Prager continues to demonstrate his ability to draw clear moral lines in the sands of our very troubled times.
