The Promise Land Principle Book Excerpt:

The book of Exodus provides us with one of the most dramatic adventures of faith found in the Bible. During its forty fantastic chapters, we read about the enslavement of an entire race; a baby set afloat on the Nile River; a speaking shrub; a shepherd’s staff becoming a venomous snake; water transformed into blood; miraculous frogs; gnats, flies, and locus infestations; a death angel; a sea selectively parting for the good guys and swallowing up the bad guys; a seemingly unlimited supply of flat bread on the ground in the desert every morning; birds dropping in for dinner; water flowing out of a rock; and much, much more. The stuff God pulls off in Exodus is way better than anything Indiana Jones, Iron Man, or even a Jedi relying upon the force could possibly accomplish. Seriously, someone should consider negotiating a film deal with God. I really believe the story that unfolds in Exodus would be a blockbuster success. Wait, has someone already done that movie? As fun as it is to read this stupendous story, I want to make sure you don’t miss the primary reason God inspired this book to be included in the Bible. This intriguing, inspirational narrative is about faith; how God goes about preparing His people to carry out their intended work and warfare with reliance upon His presence, power, and provision. The purpose and possibilities of our partnership with God are the primary teachings conveyed through all the awesome Exodus adventures.

Passage to Promise Land Book Excerpt:

Spanning more than six decades, Passage to Promise Land is a revealing study of Chinese immigration to Canada from the end of the Second World War to the present day. Tracing the evolution of immigration policy through the stories of Chinese immigrant women, Vivienne Poy captures the social, political, and ethnic tensions of the period. Although the narratives included here represent women of all ages and educational backgrounds, they share a common sense of determination and spirited resilience in the face of hardship. Through their stories we learn about Chinese settlement experience, how the Chinese community developed alongside changes in immigration regulations, and why the immigration of Chinese families to Canada became commonplace in the 1970s. The women address experiences of patriarchy and discrimination in both China and Canada, revive memories of the turbulent years in China at the end of the Pacific War, and speak of their uncertainties about the return of Hong Kong's sovereignty from the United Kingdom to China in 1997. From the very first mention of Chinese women's immigration in Canada's Parliament in 1879, to the end of the twentieth century - when a Chinese woman was appointed Governor General - the road to equality has been long and arduous. Passage to Promise Land details the important events along the way through the voices of the women themselves.

Brandy, a 59-year-old piano playing bombshell at Mac’s Bar, proudly projects her 40 double-Ds just when her tip jar sorely needs dollar bills. She escapes this roadhouse by marrying the generous philanthropist and tycoon millionaire Hubert Franz Berman. They travel in a ritzy world of private jets and stretch limos. Yet, from the beginning, Brandy is soundly rejected by his two daughters as they join forces with his domineering housekeeper and a very possessive secretary. After Hubert’s sudden death, Brandy learns the truth of his ‘hot’ money and his membership in the Honor Guard Secret Society. This deep-rooted secret makes life tougher. Special promises are quickly broken by those close to her and deadly omens of doom are predicted by a mystical clairvoyant. Only the caressing arms of Shields Mason, the limo driver, and Garrett Grayson, an FBI agent, provide her with the uplifting, heated passions of love and romance that she so desperately needs. A PROMISE LAND OF PLENTY has a maze of twisting events from Boston to Kentucky to the sandy shores of Destin and the Cayman Islands. Can Brandy ever find a place of happiness?

The Land Without Promise Book Excerpt:

Katerina Koci charts the development of the promised land motif, starting from its biblical roots and examining its reception over the centuries until the present day. As her cornerstone, Koci uses Hans-Georg Gadamer's claim that there are two complementary paths towards understanding and knowledge: science and art. Thus, to be faithful to the creed of the great hermeneutist, Koci ventures into both topics, arguing that while science sets out historical-critical analysis of the promised land motif in the Hebrew Bible and its later receptions, art enriches the interpretation with its literary illustrations. This volume places particular focus on American contexts, since the concept of the promised land is so deeply intertwined with American religious-political mythologies, and with the art of John Steinbeck and Walter Brueggemann in particular. By discussing artistic interpretation in biblical hermeneutics, the context and reception of Genesis 15.7 and Exodus 3.8 in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, and the history of the promised land motif and its interpretations, Koci argues that artistic receptions of biblical motifs are crucial for biblical scholarship in opening new hermeneutical and thematical horizons.

The Promises of God Book Excerpt:

This study is the first to investigate why Paul makes exclusive use of 'epangelia' for the divine pledge when referring to the Abrahamic covenant, a usage of the term never found in the OT-LXX. After examining Jewish writings and Greek literature of the classical and Hellenistic periods, this study demonstrates that Paul is rather unique in his exclusive use of the 'epangelia' word group for the divine pledge and for using the term predominantly in reference to the Abrahamic promises. This exclusive usage is further deemed unexpected in that the'horkos' and 'omnymi' lexemes are by far the terms most commonly associated with God's promises to Abraham in the OT, the literature with which Paul was most familiar. The study then moves to explain why Paul has chosen this path of discontinuity, where it is argued that Paul's exclusive choice of 'epangelia' for the divine promise is driven by its conceptual and linguistic correspondence with the 'euangelion', one of the terms Paul adopted from the early church that forms the core of his ministry. This conceptual word study of the divine promise will benefit Pauline scholars interested in Paul's use of the OT as well as his association of the 'euangelion' and 'epangelia' word groups.

Democracy in the Woods Book Excerpt:

How do societies negotiate the apparently competing agendas of environmental protection and social justice? Why do some countries perform much better than others on this front? Democracy in the Woods addresses these question by examining land rights conflicts-and the fate of forest-dependent peasants-in the context of the different forest property regimes in India, Tanzania, and Mexico. These three countries are prominent in the scholarship and policy debates about national forest policies and land conflicts associated with international support for nature conservation. This unique comparative study of national forestland regimes challenges the received wisdom that redistributive policies necessarily undermine the goals of environmental protection. It shows instead that the form that national environmental protection efforts take - either inclusive (as in Mexico) or exclusive (as in Tanzania and, for the most part, in India) - depends on whether dominant political parties are compelled to create structures of political intermediation that channel peasant demands for forest and land rights into the policy process. This book offers three different tests of this theory of political origins of forestland regimes. First, it explains why it took the Indian political elites nearly sixty years to introduce meaningful reforms of the colonial-era forestland regimes. Second, it successfully explains the rather counterintuitive local outcomes of the programs for formalization of land rights in India, Tanzania, and Mexico. Third, it provides a coherent explanation of why each of these three countries proposes a significantly different distribution of the benefits of forest-based climate change mitigation programs being developed under the auspices of the United Nations. In its political analysis of the control over and the use of nature, this book opens up new avenues for reflecting on how legacies of the past and international interventions interject into domestic political processes to produce specific configurations of environmental protection and social justice. Democracy in the Woods offers a theoretically rigorous argument about why and in what specific ways politics determine the prospects of a socially just and environmentally secure world. *Included in the Studies in Comparative Energy and Environmental Politics Series

Following The Seed To Salvation Book Excerpt:

In the beginning, God created a perfect world that included people who had a faultless relationship with Him. Not long after that, there was a spiritual war that took place here on earth with evil against Adam and his wife, Eve. Unfortunately for mankind, Adam and Eve lost this spiritual war, and everything on earth changed. This is when sin entered the world, spiritually and physically. This a true story about how God used a man to set in motion a plan to get back what humanity had lost spiritually. God made a covenant with this man to show that He was true to His word. However, there was one big stipulation: God would have to die.

Ocean Poetry Book Excerpt:

"If you find you were used, stand tall, they needed you more than you needed them". "Never carry around the stones into tomorrow that were tossed at you today, tomorrow will have its own burdens and stones." "The most beautiful things we will see is a simple smile expressing a multitude of emotions with a twitch of a muscle." "We find love sometimes like old men find airports, feeling out of time and safer with both feet on the ground, yet accomodations are great." "When God rested on the seveth day, I think it was by the ocean, listening to the waves break, the gulls, watching the sunrise and the tide rise." The greatest poetry speaks of love, gives us insight to things greater than ourselved and is a word seed to God." "He was soaring with eagles, till they told him he was a turkey." "Speak humbly, the words will raise you up, prideful words take you down."
