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.

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.
Where did Peter Pan come from? There is a very general conception that he stepped from Mr. Barrie's day-dreams straight upon the boards. But those who remember that delicate piece of sentiment, "The Little White Bird, or Adventures in Kensington Gardens" will find him already grown to his eternal youth there. In the story that the lonely old bachelor tells the boy David, Peter Pan is the same lad, whose "age is a week" and who "escaped from being human when he was seven days old; he escaped by the window and flew back to the Kensington Gardens," where, like all children, he had been a bird before he was born; and he lives in Kensington Gardens, which is the Never Never Land of "The Little White Bird."
Incessant Theology is a look at everything the Bible says about the Holy Spirit. Among the 2.3 Billion Christians in the world there is a myriad of different understandings, interpretations and explanations about who the Holy Spirit is and what He does. Some will embrace anything and everything even remotely linked to the Holy Spirit, others will all but ignore Him entirely. The question is; which interpretation is the best one? Exploring some 300 verses, Incessant Theology looks at every single mention of the Holy Spirit in the Bible in a clear, systematic and understandable way in an attempt to appreciate and worship Him as Scripture reveals.
