My life is being changed by some really significant paradigm-shifting lectures that you should listen to by Dr. Vishal Mangalwadi. Vishal is an Indian who was fascinated with why the West had developed so well and why other nations remained trapped in poverty. Now he is interested in the current decline of the West.
As someone who has never been captured by history, I find his commentary and penetrating look into history, biblical worldview, work ethic, and morality to be extremely challenging. These lectures come from a series called “The Book of the Millennium”–where Vishal attempts to show that the Bible was the book that shaped the progress of this entire millennium.
Two of my favorite lectures are “Humanization via Technology” and “Why Some are so Rich and Others are so Poor” . . . third for me would probably be the lecture on heroes. You need to check them out! They are FREE!! Click here to see the page to easily download the lectures. I’m not sure if you can download them using Firefox, but I’m pretty positive that you can use Internet Explorer.
