Dr. John A. Huffman, a leading figure in evangelical circles, says: “Dwight Carlson has courageously tackled some of the toughest questions about heaven/hell and who will and will not be saved…One cannot read this book and remain content to have easy answers to heavy, complex questions. Instead one is overwhelmed with God’s grace....Don’t read [Who’ll Be in Heaven and Who Won’t] unless you are willing to think, have previously unquestioned presuppositions challenged and to consider that perhaps when the veil of mystery is lifted you discover a God more demanding in his righteousness and more mercifully generous in the scope of his salvation than you have previously considered.” The author asserts that there is a significant body of crucial information about life after death that is not being communicated to the average person on the street. Apropos is John Sanders’s statement: “I have found that many laypeople have hopes for the unevangelized but do not know how to articulate and defend such hopes. Within evangelicalism, the wider hope is more popular in the pews than in the pulpits.” In fact, it has been suggested that “evangelical leaders have managed to keep a tight lid on this volatile topic.”[i] [i] John Sanders, No Other Name: An Investigation into the Destiny of the Unevangelized (Eugene, OR: Wipf and Stock, 2001), 23, 20.
This book offers a novel and productive explanation of why 'ordinary' people can be moved to engage in destructive mass violence (or terrorism and the abuse of rights), often in large numbers and in unexpected ways. Its argument is that narratives of insecurity (powerful horror stories people tell and believe about their world and others) can easily make extreme acts appear acceptable, even necessary and heroic. As in action or horror movies, the script dictates how the 'hero' acts. The book provides theoretical justifications for this analysis, building on earlier studies but going beyond them in what amount to a breakthrough in mapping the context of mass violence. It backs its argument with a large number of case studies covering four continents, written by prominent scholars from the relevant countries or with deep knowledge of them. A substantial introduction by the UN's Special Advisor on the Prevention of Genocide demonstrates the policy relevance of this path-breaking work.
The Reformed tradition of worship in England has given the English-speaking world the Westminster Directory for the Public Worship of God, and the hymns of Isaac Watts. In this collection of essays, scholars and ministers who are inheritors of this tradition reflect on the continuities, innovations, and tensions in Reformed worship and their lived expression in contemporary church life. Among the tensions explored is that between order and freedom in worship, and the bold contention is made that ordered freedom is the scriptural mark of the church's worship and the character of all good liturgy, for order is love in regulative operation (Anglican- Reformed International Commission). This collection of essays on the theology, history, and practice of Reformed worship also includes examples of psalmody, liturgy, and a sermon.
Have you ever wondered, Why am I here? What's gone wrong with the world? What is the answer? How will it all end? What do I have to do to know God? What's God up to on Planet Earth? offers a no-strings-attached presentation of the Christian message written for those who are seeking answers to questions like these. Mark Keown gives a compelling vision of a loving God whose desire is the restoration of the whole world. The book focuses on the individual person and how he or she fits into this inspiring vision. It is a must-read for those seeking to understand the Christian faith more.
In an amazingly brief format, the author presents a broad spectrum of new fundamental ideas about the world in which we live, existence of man, and the human relationships. In a display of unexpected ideas, the book separates Our world from the rest of the universe. This bold statement helps us to realize that the current views of the dominance of uncertainty and chaos are valid for the cosmic universe. While our world is characterized by Causality and Order, The order is based upon and is manifested by the Existence of natural objects. The new worldview described in this book advances knowledge in the areas of our immediate interest, such as health, behavior, and the human relationships. The book refutes the opinion that science has exhausted its capacities and opportunities for advancement. Progress in our understanding of the phenomena of Existence should promote renaissance in science as well as in philosophy, religion and art the sources of knowledge in the sphere of the phenomena of Existence. The book is addressed to those who are interested in science, philosophy and education, and to the intellectuals independently of their profession or occupation. New thoroughly substantiated scientifico-philosophical Ideas establishing the Order of Reason, Morals and Law serve as a Guidance for every Human Individual in times when uncertainty and chaos approached their apogee.
What stands out in this memoir is above all the work that he has treated with exceptional seriousness from the very beginning, describing himself as the little screw that drives itself into the grand technology as all round machinist and invincible form grinder. Readers not familiar with modern technology will have to be impressed in this fascinating story by the thoroughness with which the author describes complicated production processes and high-precision items produced by his skilled hands. Also astonishing is his ability to recollect the details of social interactions in the workplace as well as among the neighbors. Besides work, the most important place is occupied by the family. A separate, but an equally important hobby is history and politics, both the grand one and the smaller, local one. Everywhere, whether at work, at home or social occasions, he participated in discussions, impressing everyone with his historical knowledge and his levelheaded outlook on current developments in the USA, the world, Poland, and Iraq. He also was, is, and always will be a great patriot, an ambassador of the Polish cause. After all, as he writes in the closing sentences of his memoirs, neither education nor wealth is important; what is important for us is to represent our country with dignity, wherever we might find ourselves. From the Foreword by Wladyslaw Sobecki
