Larry E. Ellison

The message is clear; we are to walk worthy of our calling. Our Christian walk is how we live our lives here on earth. If we are being urged to walk worthy of our calling. It implies that it is possible not to walk worthy of our calling. With the coming events in mind, we need to remind ourselves of what is going to happen to those who are not walking worthy of their calling. They will be left behind. This is not, nor will it be, a popular message. Nevertheless it is true, and it will happen exactly as described. God is not concerned or swayed by what is popular with mankind. After 6,000 years, it is finally time for man to listen as God begins to speak more directly to him. While it is a popular thought among many Christians today, scripture does not support the whole church we are attending being taken on that day, but rather only those who are ready and active in our Lord's service.

One out of every five Latin Americans or around 130 million people have never known anything but poverty, subsisting on less than US$4-a-day throughout their lives. These are the region ́s chronically poor, who have remained so despite unprecedented inroads against poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean since the turn of the century. Left Behind: Chronic Poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean takes a closer look at the region’s entrenched poor, who and where they are, and how existing policies need to change in order to effectively assist them. The book shows significant variations of rates of chronic poverty both across and within countries. Within a single country, some regions show incidence rates up to eight times higher than the lowest. Despite the higher rates of chronic poverty in rural areas, chronic poverty is as much an urban as a rural issue. In fact, considering absolute numbers, urban areas in many countries, including Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia and the Dominican Republic, have more chronic poor than rural areas. Undoubtedly the region has come a long way during the decade in terms of poverty reduction, guided by a mix of sustained growth and increased levels in amounts and quality of public spending and programs targeted directly or indirectly to the chronic poor. While improving endowments and the context where the chronic poor live is a necessary condition going forward, the decade’s experience suggests that it may not be enough to reach the chronic poor. The book posits that refinements to the existing policy toolkit †“ as opposed to more programs †“ may come a long way in helping the remaining poor. These refinements include intensifying efforts to improve coordination between different social and economic programs, which can boost the income generation process and deal with the intergenerational transmission of chronic poverty by investing in early childhood development. Equally important though, there is an urgent need to adapt programs to directly address the psychological toll of chronic poverty on people’s mindset and aspirations, which currently undermines the effectiveness of the existing policy efforts.

Left Behind punctuates the experiences of a family before, during, and after the loss of a father to a misdiagnosed form of cancer. It is written through the perspective of a young man in his early 20's of the trials, struggles, adjustments, and lessons learned by the family left behind and the family dynamic that developed following a tragic loss. Left Behind is aimed at those who are struggling to recover from the emotional and even physical turmoil that can follow the loss of a loved one, to accept the loss, or to establish how to live in a world where a critical family member no longer exists. Grieving can take months to years, and the grieving process following the loss of an immediate family member to cancer is truly frightening, unpredictable, and confusing. Those who are left behind often become angry, withdrawn, and bitter while others fall into patterns of depression, confusion, and regret. Furthermore, cancers that lead to death because of gross negligence or misdiagnosis can present even greater lasting effects because of heightened levels of confusion and anger toward a profession that is increasingly known for poor quality of care and patient advocacy. Losing someone to cancer is a trial with which only those left behind can understand. Let us not forget those who we've lost. Let us learn from the trials and failures throughout the journey of fighting cancer. Let us realize that the future is bright no matter how dark the past is. Left Behind is a true story that will help those who have lost someone close to realize that they are not alone. That what they are feeling does in fact happen to others. That they are not dysfunctional or lost. Though the moments following a death can be very dark, the future is bright.

Sebastian Edwards

The political and economic history of Latin America has been marked by great hopes and even greater disappointments. Despite abundant resources—and a history of productivity and wealth—in recent decades the region has fallen further and further behind developed nations, surpassed even by other developing economies in Southeast Asia and elsewhere. In Left Behind, Sebastian Edwards explains why the nations of Latin America have failed to share in the fruits of globalization and forcefully highlights the dangers of the recent turn to economic populism in the region. He begins by detailing the many ways Latin American governments have stifled economic development over the years through excessive regulation, currency manipulation, and thoroughgoing corruption. He then turns to the neoliberal reforms of the early 1990s, which called for the elimination of deficits, lowering of trade barriers, and privatization of inefficient public enterprises—and which, Edwards argues, held the promise of freeing Latin America from the burdens of the past. Flawed implementation, however, meant the promised gains of globalization were never felt by the mass of citizens, and growing frustration with stalled progress has led to a resurgence of populism throughout the region, exemplified by the economic policies of Venezuela’sHugo Chávez. But such measures, Edwards warns, are a recipe for disaster; instead, he argues, the way forward for Latin America lies in further market reforms, more honestly pursued and fairly implemented. As an example of the promise of that approach, Edwards points to Latin America's giant, Brazil, which under the successful administration of President Luis Inácio da Silva (Lula) has finally begun to show signs of reaching its true economic potential. As the global financial crisis has reminded us, the risks posed by failing economies extend far beyond their national borders. Putting Latin America back on a path toward sustained growth is crucial not just for the region but for the world, and Left Behind offers a clear, concise blueprint for the way forward.

In Left Behind, a team of education scholars led by Edward P. St. John argues that American cities have been engaged for the past three decades in a radical—but failing—effort to transform general and vocational high schools into college preparatory institutions. By examining the educational reforms in four urban charter schools across the United States and four public high schools in New York City, Left Behind reveals how educators contend with the challenge of developing new courses while providing social support for students to build college-going cultures. The research shows that district schools struggle to comply with standards that leave little room to develop advanced thematic curricula and that charter schools have not succeeded in substantially raising student test scores. Many students who start in rigorous charter schools transfer back to public schools while both public and charter schools struggle to prepare their students for college-level work. Left Behind provides crucial insights into the troubling trajectory of public policy while offering teachers and administrators effective strategies for overcoming barriers.
