Description : When James Broadwater went to work in Mississippi's state government in 2004, he soon found that what he thought was a good place to be employed turned out to be a network of "good ol' boys" who were committed to the status quo of corruption, waste, fraud, abuse, harassment, and persecution, which went all the way to the Governor's Mansion. For six and a half years he risked his job by filing complaints up the chain of command within the agency and charges with a dozen state and federal agencies. He found out that no one would do anything, including the media, so now he is taking his case to the court of public opinion through this book, and running for Governor in 2011! About the Author: James Broadwater and his family own a small business in the Jackson, Mississippi metro area. He is an ordained Southern Baptist minister, former state employee, and veteran of the Mississippi Army National Guard.

Description : The unprecedented resurgence, renewal, and rebirth of twenty-first century Christianity in postcolonial societies, such as Asia, Africa, and Latin America, calls for new insights, methodologies, and paradigms since the West can no longer be regarded as the sole citadel and cradle of the Christian faith. The Christian message has been reshaped and reappropriated in different contexts and cultures and, through this cross-cultural transmission and transformation, it has become a world religion. Contextualizing the Christian faith also entails decolonizing its theology, precepts, and dogma. These efforts continue to engender new initiatives and efforts in the intercultural, interconfessional, intercontinental, and interreligious dimensions of world Christianity. A New Day is a collection of essays in honor of Lamin Sanneh, one of the most adamant advocates and apostles of the radical change in the face of Christianity in the twenty-first century. The essays in this book by recognized scholars deal with issues, themes, and perspectives that are important for understanding Christianity as a world religious movement.
Description : In the twentieth century alone, more than two hundred appearances of Mary, the mother of Jesus, have been reported in over thirty countries. Some claim Mary has appeared to them as they pray. Others say they have watched her statues weep or have seen her images on walls or windows. And some tell us that Mary has revealed to them urgent prophecies and secrets.Mary has entrusted her messages to unlikely ambassadors--not prelates or popes, presidents or politicians, but children and simple folk, innocent ones who could receive her messages in humility and convey them with undiluted simplicity. For forty years Mother Mary gave messages through Mark and Elizabeth Prophet to comfort and enlighten spiritual seekers of all paths. This groundbreaking book records Mary's precious messages of wisdom, hope and peace to a troubled world. It also includes the text of eight nondenominational scriptural rosaries--one for each day of the week and Sunday evening.
Description : The Dawn Of A New Day is a collection of poems that bring insight and awareness to everyday living. These poems are shared experiences of how the world looks through the eyes of someone who got a second chance in life. I share my rebirth to a new day and all the wonders that came with it. The sharing of daily experiences from the hardship of the aged, the dreams of the young to Veterans and their story, and how time or should I say How Old Father Time waits on no one. The principles that some are judged by and the morals others live by. But through prayer and faith in the Lord He will continually bring us through to that Dawn Of A New Day. I thought this would be a befitting title to follow my previous book After The Storm Is Over, because after the storm, The Dawn Of A New Day, brings calmness and growth. All praises to God, for the same one who holds The Heavens in place - Also guides Our steps. I pray that these poems will inspire, bless and comfort you.
