Sharon H Chang

Research continues to uncover early childhood as a crucial time when we set the stage for who we will become. In the last decade, we have also seen a sudden massive shift in America’s racial makeup with the majority of the current under-5 age population being children of color. Asian and multiracial are the fastest growing self-identified groups in the United States. More than 2 million people indicated being mixed race Asian on the 2010 Census. Yet, young multiracial Asian children are vastly underrepresented in the literature on racial identity. Why? And what are these children learning about themselves in an era that tries to be ahistorical, believes the race problem has been “solved,” and that mixed race people are proof of it? This book is drawn from extensive research and interviews with sixty-eight parents of multiracial children. It is the first to examine the complex task of supporting our youngest around being “two or more races” and Asian while living amongst “post-racial” ideologies.

In the New Testament purifyng it from the Jewish nationalism Jesus puts in prominence the moral character of the Kingdom of God, making it the gift of grace underlining its eschatological and transcendent essence. In Jesus words and actions the Kingdom of God was present in its fullness. In the eschatological sense Christ's life, death and resurrection belong to the history of the kingdom of God. Since the resurection the history of the Kingdom of God has become the history of the missions. The Kingdom of God is the redemptive reign of God dynamically active to eteblish his rule among men, and this Kingdom has already come into human history in the person and mission of Jesus to overcome evil to deliver humans from its power, and to bring them into the blessings of God's reign. The church remains on earth as the as the sign of the kingdom of God, namely as the presence of Christ after the ascension. She prolongs and continues the mistery of Christ and his mission in the world. The second Vatican Council understands the term as a series of works done by God (SC 35; DV 2) from creation(LG2) to parousia (LG 48) and includes also human co-operation with grace (LG 65) Christ, the Lord of all active in creation, points to God the Father who in the Spirit leads and guides history. It is in this context that we have to undestand the active presence of the Triune God in other religions. Thus the Kingdom of God is Christocentric and Trinitarian. (Novo Millennio Ineunte 5). At the centre of the new evangelization there should be, always, Jesus Christ, Way, Truth, and Life. New Evangelization signifies the announcing of the Good News, i.e., God loves humans, he saves them in Jesus Christ, his Son, and calls them to salvation

Patrick Schreiner

Little attention is usually given to the space or place of the kingdom. Yet Matthew employs the distinctive phrase "kingdom of heavenÂ?? and also portrays Jesus as Immanuel (God with us). In this volume Patrick Schreiner argues that by expanding one's view of space one can see that Jesus' purpose is to reorder the space of the earth in Matthew as the heavenly king. Jesus pierces the barrier between the two realms in his incarnation, and the spaces of heaven and earth begin to collide in his ministry. Therefore, in Matthew, Jesus does not just promise a temporal or ethereal kingdom, but one that is located, one that has a sense of rootedness. Jesus is granted authority over this space and inspires people to follow him in this construction project. The spatial kingdom begins in his body, and he extends it to his church by promising his presence.

E.L. Konigsburg

2017 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the beloved classic From the Mixed-up files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. When suburban Claudia Kincaid decides to run away, she knows she doesn't just want to run from somewhere, she wants to run to somewhere -- to a place that is comfortable, beautiful, and, preferably, elegant. She chooses the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Knowing that her younger brother Jamie has money and thus can help her with a serious cash-flow problem, she invites him along. Once settled into the museum, Claudia and Jamie find themselves caught up in the mystery of an angel statue that the museum purchased at auction for a bargain price of $225. The statue is possibly an early work of the Renaissance master, Michelangelo, and therefore worth millions. Is it? Or isn't it? Claudia is determined to find out. Her quest leads her to Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, the remarkable old woman who sold the statue, and to some equally remarkable discoveries about herself.

Christina Cameron,Mechtild Rössler

In 1972, UNESCO put in place the World Heritage Convention, a highly successful international treaty that influences heritage activity in virtually every country in the world. Focusing on the Convention's creation and early implementation, this book examines the World Heritage system and its global impact through diverse prisms, including its normative frameworks, constituent bodies, programme activities, personalities and key issues. The authors concentrate on the period between 1972 and 2000 because implementation of the World Heritage Convention during these years sets the stage for future activity and provides a foil for understanding the subsequent evolution in the decade that follows. This innovative book project seeks out the voices of the pioneers - some 40 key players who participated in the creation and early implementation of the Convention - and combines these insightful interviews with original research drawn from a broad range of both published and archival sources. The World Heritage Convention has been significantly influenced by 40 years of history. Although the text of the Convention remains unchanged, the way it has been implemented reflects global trends as well as evolving perceptions of the nature of heritage itself and approaches to conservation. Some are sounding the alarm, claiming that the system is imploding under its own weight. Others believe that the Convention is being compromised by geopolitical considerations and rivalries. This book stimulates reflection on the meaning of the Convention in the twenty-first century.

There’s a reason Jesus taught us to pray “Thy Kingdom come . . .” and not “Thy church come.” The church clearly plays an important role in God’s plans. It was established by Christ, and he is its Head. But have we put too much emphasis on the church? Have we confused a means of participating in God’s Kingdom with the Kingdom itself? In Kingdom Come, church ministry consultant Reggie McNeal reveals why it’s crucial to realign the church’s mission with God’s ultimate Kingdom agenda. You’ll discover how you can get in on—and help lead—the Kingdom movement currently underway. Join the mission to help the Kingdom break into our hearts . . . and break out into the world.

Charles Davidson

Here is a vivid, poetic, and evocative story of the painter Vincent van Gogh's struggle to become his true self. The author listens in on Vincent's most intimate, frequently startling thoughts on a host of topics, drawn from three volumes of his correspondence and his 900 extant paintings. What emerges is the portrait of an artist whose spiritual vision was borne of an agonizingly prolonged experience of the "dark night of the soul" through which his art dared to envision the triumph of joy over sorrow, of resurrection over suffering and death. Readers will discover that in many ways Vincent's story is as much about us as about him. Tracing van Gogh's pilgrimage from being an apprentice art dealer to being called to minister, in self-renunciation and misery, among destitute coal miners, the narrative follows his winding, tortuous path into adulthood as he struggles with family, associates, lovers--and with himself. Constantly evidenced in Vincent's own eloquent words and paintings is his tussle with the mysterious presence and maddening absence of God. Vocation unveils as a process of summoning and birthing his own self, through an attempt to imitate Christ, calling forth van Gogh's extraordinary creative powers from deep within. Adding choice supplies from other observers, Davidson here weaves his own exact, artful tapestry of interpretation, producing a suspenseful excursion into the life of van Gogh that offers profound meaning at every turn.

download ebook the foreign policy discourse in the united kingdom and the united states in the “new world order” pdf epub

Lori Maguire

The goal of this book is to examine some of the major foreign policy debates in the United Kingdom and the United States in the period from 1992 to 2008: from the end of the Cold War and the aftermath of the first Gulf War to the 2008 American presidential election. The first President Bush spoke in 1991 of a “new world order” – which seemed to mean an American hegemony. The United States was now the world’s only superpower, although a superpower afflicted with weaknesses, especially economic ones. But by 2008 the “new world order” did not seem so new or so strongly American. The period saw the terrorist attacks against the U.S. of 11 September 2001, military problems for the superpower in Afghanistan and Iraq and, by the summer of 2008, near economic collapse. In all of these developments, Britain shared to a lesser or a greater extent. It is hoped that this book will shed an important light both on each nation and on the so-called “special relationship” between the two. Furthermore, this book is also not specifically concerned with policy or how policy is made but with the debate around policy and the rhetoric used to present different points of view. “The ‘Special Relationship’ between the US and Britain remains an enigmatic, ever-changing, but still very powerful factor in world politics. As an examination of their foreign policy discourses reveals, from the perspective of culture and values, few Western countries are as different as the United Kingdom and the US. With very few exceptions – the foreign policies of Gladstone and Tony Blair, and Chruchillian rhetoric, unmatched by his supremely realpolitical politics – British governments abhor talking about values and ideals. The British cultural peculiarity is to dismiss ideology and values as packaging, only to be caught by surprise time and again that they cannot do “business with Herr Hitler”, or that people kill each other for their values, religions, constructed identities and ideologies. Most American governments, by contrast, have had ideological and moral crusades embroidered on their banners in their foreign policy. There is a convergence with Britain when both proclaim that all they are doing is in their self-interest, but the Americans unashamedly assume that what is good for America is good for the world, while the British discourse, with the UK’s decline since 1945, rarely goes that far. As an analysis of their discourses reveals, the ‘Special Relationship’ is thus clearly founded on something either deeper or more superficial than shared culture or values; this volume sheds light on this surprising fact in most illuminating ways, and Lori Maguire’s achievement in bringing together these examinations is praiseworthy indeed.” —Prof. Beatrice Heuser, University of Reading

Cory Doctorow

Bursting with cutting-edge speculation and human insight, Cory Doctorow's Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom is a coming-of-age romantic comedy and a kick-butt cybernetic tour de force Jules is a young man barely a century old. He's lived long enough to see the cure for death and the end of scarcity, to learn ten languages and compose three symphonies...and to realize his boyhood dream of taking up residence in Disney World. Disney World! The greatest artistic achievement of the long-ago twentieth century. Now in the care of a network of volunteer "ad-hocs" who keep the classic attractions running as they always have, enhanced with only the smallest high-tech touches. Now, though, it seems the "ad hocs" are under attack. A new group has taken over the Hall of the Presidents and is replacing its venerable audioanimatronics with new, immersive direct-to-brain interfaces that give guests the illusion of being Washington, Lincoln, and all the others. For Jules, this is an attack on the artistic purity of Disney World itself. Worse: it appears this new group has had Jules killed. This upsets him. (It's only his fourth death and revival, after all.) Now it's war: war for the soul of the Magic Kingdom, a war of ever-shifting reputations, technical wizardry, and entirely unpredictable outcomes. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

download ebook the end of the unrepentant pdf epub

J. Webb Mealy

The End of the Unrepentant stands as the most thorough exegetical analysis of the biblical teachings about the fate of the unrepentant ever written. Following up the author's acclaimed monograph, After the Thousand Years: Resurrection and Judgment in Revelation 20, this study makes use of the nexus of the Isaiah Apocalypse (Isa 24-27) and Revelation 20 as a paradigm or interpretive lens through which to understand the teachings of the Psalms, the Prophets, Jesus, and the NT about resurrection, judgment, and the divergent futures of the faithful and the unrepentant. The question of whether "hell" is everlasting has been a topic of interest for many decades now among evangelicals, and the controversy has only intensified in recent years. Many Christians feel uneasy about the idea of everlasting torment, but their belief in the authority of Scripture leaves them feeling that this doctrine is inescapable. The End of the Unrepentant is written for them. It mounts a unique, positive exegetical argument for annihilationism--an argument so thoroughly founded on the prophetic words of Jesus, Isaiah, and John that it shifts the exegetical burden of proof to those who would wish, for theological reasons, to affirm everlasting torment.

Michael Hazelwood

The beast of Revelation was the Old Roman Empire system, which ruled all of Europe and the Middle East. When Rome fell from within due to the weight of its own government, it was said the beast was dead—but this beast is coming back to life and taking over the world once more. In The World System Equals the Beast of Revelation, author Michael Hazelwood examines this occurrence by unlocking the mysteries of the book of Revelation chapter by chapter. He discerns the signs of the times we are living in with step-by-step biblical and historical references. Bringing a better understanding through the truth of God’s Word, Hazelwood explains world events and their relevance to the Bible. He shows how America is described in a biblical prophecy—even if it isn’t mentioned by name—and how it is affected by the Old Roman Empire and the Catholic Church. The World System Equals the Beast of Revelation seeks to help Christians gain a better understanding of Bible prophecy and end-time events and find the love, hope, and forgiveness God has for all in Jesus Christ the Lord.

Yliyah Paul

You’ve heard the lies. Now, learn the truth - if you dare! Prepare yourself for a real eye opener! Take off your rose colored glasses before you read this one, because it is probably the most controversial and revealing book ever written! The truth is more precious than the purest gold, and it has been said: the “truth is stranger than fiction”. The latter is very true in Satan’s world of lies and deception, as will be revealed, for this book shakes the very foundations of most world religions, age old philosophies, and creation theories. However, only the emotionally mature, the truly open minded, and the intellectually brave should explore this book, for the knowledge obtained can alienate as well as enlighten those who discover these truths! There is much truth to be found in these pages, but this book was not written for the masses but for the “few who seek” and love the truth more than their own lives! We are now in The End of Days! The last five years of increase in intensity and number of hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, and floods (caused mostly by global warming!) plus a significant increase in famine, incurable diseases, terrorism, and instability in the Middle East attest to that conclusion! It’s time for the truth in religion, politics, UFO’s, extraterrestrials, creation theories, and the future of mankind and Planet, Earth! Lies and myth have been perpetuated throughout the centuries. With the dawning of a new era, it is time the predestined purpose and nature of humanity and the true identity and nature of The Creator be revealed to those who desire and seek it. The reader will discover how Satan “has deceived the whole world” through false teachers and mistranslation. Evolution and Creationism (or Creation Science) along with other scientific methods are merged into an easy to understand synthesis, for both have some validity in the creation of the universe. “The straight and narrow way” that leads to eternal life is made plain and easy to understand, and it is the same religion found in The Messiah’s message expressed nearly 2000 years ago, which, believe it or not is not and was not: Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, nor most versions of Judaism! The Creator is described as all knowing and omnipotent in spirit as well as in physical and scientific terms. For example, he and his host have the power to appear and disappear as Spirit Beings, or they can choose to take physical form and travel about the universe in their “chariots of fire” via wormholes at incredible speeds. Time and space are of no consequence to The Eternal One and his Heavenly Host, for they have long ago conquered both. They rule and nurture all life in the universe and will soon return to rule Planet Earth, when “The Seed” they have planted has come into fruition. At his Messiah’s coming, his “clouds of glory” will be so numerous, “the sun will be darkened and the moon will not shed its light”! Earthquakes, floods, droughts, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanoes, famine, disease, wars, terrorism, and economic woes will continue to increase in intensity and frequency as the Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse come to full gallop as the time of the end approaches. The author predicted the recent increase in terrorism and natural disasters with the first edition of this book in 1996, which was drafted in 1989! Time is running out for man as we know him! A relatively rare breed of human will “inherit the earth” as “The Wheat” described in Matthew 5:3-10 & 13:23 planted as his “seed of righteousness” 6,000 years ago in Adam. NOTE: This book does not call for any violence, Jihad, or “Holy War” against any government or religion. For, “those who live by the sword shall die by the sword”. Vengeance is mine says “The Most High”, and when his “Day of Indignation” has come, rest assured, vengeance will be duly executed! For, “they come from a far country, from the end of Heaven - even the Most High and the weapons of indignation to destroy the whole land” (Isaiah 13:5). “Behold, they shall come with fire and chariots like the whirlwind” (Isaiah 66:15). And what do these chariots look like? “Their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel” (Ezek 1:16). Now look again at the front cover! Get the picture - what the “clouds of glory” really look like? The reader will discover the science behind magic and the truth behind myth. This is a last chance calling for those who love truth and are found worthy to be “saved” from the coming destruction and allowed to live in the coming wonderful world and rule with the Messiah for 1000 years. This writing constitutes fulfillment of the prophecy of the “Message of the Kingdom” as correctly translated in Mark 13:10 & Matthew 24:14, which is to be published/preached into all the world” just before The End of The Age.

Mickey D Glover

The book of Revelation clearly tells us that someday there would be an end to this world; many have tried to determine this mystery date in our future to no avail. But the mystery that the date seekers and many others failed to notice is this, WHY Why is so much more important than when? There is no question about it; this world will definitely come to an end. But, why is it going to end? In an ancient generation of mankind God gave man his law. It is called the “TEN COMMANDMENTS”. In today’s society these laws are broken every day without much notice. To our own ignorance there is always a price to pay when we disobey. But life goes on. These laws were put into place to protect us from ourselves. But there is one sin that brought our world to an end that fell through the cracks virtually unnoticed. This great sin has now spread throughout the entire earth; Christians and unbelievers are all involved in this sin that has now grown so large that it is actually bringing in the curse of God for the judgment of this sin that will ultimately end our world as we know it. Fulfilling the prophecies of the book of Revelation. In this day and time knowledge has been much increased. So the sin that caused our world to end would have to be put in place in such a way as to be greatly unnoticed. Such as an illusionist or magician. In this book that you are about to read, you will learn the greatest deception ever pulled off in the world’s history, and at a cost so great that it will cause the end of our world, as we know it. The time for this judgment has already began, as early as 2007 the count down clock for the end of the world events began to tick off. The Holy bible was given to mankind directly from God to tell us how life began and why our world ended.

"An excellent introduction to the prophets and the prophetic literature . . . The goal of the book is to understand the thought of the prophets in their historical contexts, and to communicate that understanding for our time. Its approach, while innovative, builds upon he best of contemporary analysis of the prophetic literature." --Gene M. Tucker Candler School of Theology Emory University "Koch's first volume on the prophets of ancient Israel displays his sound and creative scholarship and will fill a bibliographical gap.He displays the individuality of each prophet with perceptive insight, but he also compares and interrelates them in his various summaries. Furthermore, Koch relates his study of individual prophets to theological currents that have been flowing through the scholarly world in recent decades." --Bernhard W. Anderson Princeton Theological Seminary

download ebook ideal government and the mixed constitution in the middle ages pdf epub

James M. Blythe

Ancient Greeks and Romans often wrote that the best form of government consists of a mixture of monarchy, aristocracy, and democracy. Political writers in the early modern period applied this idea to government in England, Venice, and Florence, and Americans used it in designing their constitution. In this history of political thought James Blythe investigates what happened to the concept of mixed constitution during the Middle Ages, when the work of the Greek historian Polybius, the source of many of the formal elements of early modern theory, was unknown in Latin. Although it is generally argued that Renaissance and early modern theories of mixed constitution derived from the revival of classical Polybian models, Blythe demonstrates the pervasiveness of such ideas in high and late medieval thought. The author traces medieval Aristotelian theories concerning the best form of government and concludes that most endorsed a limited monarchy sharing many features with the mixed constitution. He also shows that the major early modern ideas of mixed constitutionalism stemmed from medieval and Aristotelian thought, which partially explains the enthusiastic reception of Polybius in the sixteenth century. Originally published in 1992. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions.

God's laws . the end of time . the ages of the heaven and earth . 6,000 years of recorded history . Bible prophecies . the "twelve tribes of the United States" . the truth of Mormonism . and more. Complete with all of the original charts and diagrams, this will intrigue readers of religious ephemera.
