In our modern world, we tend to analyze issues from a practical perspective. This practical perspective cares very little about absolute truth, Biblical principles, or having a consistent perspective. The practical (or pragmatic) view cares only about what may appear to work, not about what is right or wrong. Unfortunately, our society is crumbling from our unbridled pragmatism. A return to principle is the path to restoration and it is this “principled path” that the Institute For Principle Studies researches and teaches.
IPS essays provide deeper analysis and greater scholarship than commentaries. All essays are reviewed for factual accuracy by our research team. In addition, essays written by in-house staff are reviewed for both factual and analytical integrity by outside scholars who may include one or more members of our scholars council. Essays written by non IPS authors receive similar scrutiny from our in-house staff.
Each book we promote and sell at IPS is carefully chosen because of its unique ability to communicate the views of our Founding Fathers. The educational potential of each of our books is tremendous, and we believe that if they are faithfully read, these important books can become stepping stones to educating and changing hearts and minds. Take a closer look at some of our books with reviews from IPS staff.
IPS commentaries are designed to provide comment and analysis on a particular issue or event. Commentaries are our least scholarly publications and generally include little or no research. They do, however, provide solid analysis of their subject from a principle perspective.
