As Christians today we need to enter into dialogue with the context of the world of which generation we are. The Four gospel evangelists present to us, the Jesus who always engages his contemporary in an intelligent conversation not only on matters of faith and morals but on the entire existential life situations of the people at his time. In the constant conversation between Jesus and his major interlocutors: the scribes, the Pharisees and/or the Sadducees, Jesus demonstrates and establishes that Christianity should have the nature of a rational/intelligent faith and morals not an irrational/blind faith and moral. Whenever we fail as Christians to act or react to the realities of our world with a rational or intelligent faith and moral attitude we always end up not only becoming inhuman, cruel, exploitative, manipulative and hypocritical like the scribes and the Pharisees of Jesus’ time; but we also become predators, persecutors, fanatics, enemies and killers of gifted and ingenious people in the name of God. We become stagnant and remain in the past, making Christianity unattractive, sterile and a gathering of people of weak minds, who nourish themselves with fables and superstitions. Thus, Christianity would be erroneously conceived as an enemy to science, enemy to technological advancement, enemy to politics, enemy to Economic growth and entire human development and societal advancements. This rational-faith attitude is what this book attempts to expose and invite everyone to have for a better and richer Christian experience in our informative explosive generation.

The Vietnam War; a war in which the government betrays its people, the military betrays its soldiers, the soldiers betray those they are assigned to protect...and one woman betrays her best friend. A collage of real events, A Matter of Betrayal illustrates the impact of the Vietnam War on two strong-willed women. These women's lives and the lives of all Americans are ripped apart by the turbulent 60's and the Vietnam War, taking 30 years to heal. The daughter of a four star general, Jenny leaves behind her sheltered life for the front lines of a war no one understands. Among the incomprehensible horrors, she discovers love and then great pain as the man she loves becomes a casualty of war. Upon her return to the "world," she is betrayed by her best friend and forced underground to protect her daughter and her own true identity. Music becomes Jenny's tool for survivalthe way back to herself. Kick is also an army brat and Jenny's best friend. She takes another road leading away from the rigid world of her military parents. Without an ounce of Jenny's idealism, she opts to tackle New York. A would-be photographer, she dives into the underground pop art and drug scene, hoping along the way to snag a rich husband who will give her the security and status she longs to possess. Debased and broken by the heir of an industrialist family and driven by jealousy, she betrays her best friend, her husband and herself. Only when the truth comes out, as it does through Jenny's grown daughter as she returns to Vietnam to find her father, can the waters calm and real healing begin.

Even in the 24th century, three is definitely a crowd. Imzadi: to the people of the planet Betazed, including Counselor Deanna Troi of the Starship Enterprise™, it means "beloved" and denotes a special closeness that can never be truly broken. Or can it? In his acclaimed earlier novel, Imzadi, bestselling author Peter David explored the special bond between Deanna Troi and Commander William T. Riker. It revealed new facets of their long and intimate relationship and put that bond to its ultimate test in a powerful and unforgettable story that remains one of the most popular Star Trek® adventures ever published. Imzadi was a New York Times bestseller in both hardcover and paperback. Now David examines the heart of Deanna Troi from an altogether different perspective, as he reveals for the first time the full story of Troi's troubled romance with Lieutenant Commander Worf. At first glance, they cannot be more different. She is an empath, gentle and acutely sensitive to the needs and feelings of others. He is a fierce Klingon warrior, dedicated to a harsh and warlike code of honor. Brought together, however, by a common need to care for Alexander, Worf's troubled, motherless son, they discover hidden reserves of courage and compassion within each other. Soon mutual respect leads to much stronger emotions as they embark on an unexpected courtship, much to the surprise and discomfort of William Riker. But does Worf's future truly lie with Deanna...or on a distant outpost called Deep Space 9™? And whom indeed shall Troi ultimately call "imzadi"? Imzadi II is a compelling story, an untold chapter in the history of the Starship Enterprise™.

'Stalin's last generation' was the last generation to come of age under Stalin, yet it was also the first generation to be socialized in the post-war period. Its young members grew up in a world that still carried many of the hallmarks of the Soviet Union's revolutionary period, yet their surroundings already showed the first signs of decay, stagnation, and disintegration. Stalin's last generation still knew how to speak 'Bolshevik', still believed in the power of Soviet heroes and still wished to construct socialism, yet they also liked to dance and dress in Western styles, they knew how to evade boring lectures and lessons in Marxism-Leninism, and they were keen to forge identities that were more individual than those offered by the state. In this book, Juliane Fürst creates a detailed picture of late Stalinist youth and youth culture, looking at young people from a variety of perspectives: as children of the war, as recipients and creators of propaganda, as perpetrators of crime, as representatives of fledgling subcultures, as believers, as critics, and as drop-outs. In the process, she illuminates not only the complex relationship between the Soviet state and its youth, but also provides a new interpretative framework for understanding late Stalinism - the impact of which on Soviet society's subsequent development has hitherto been underestimated, including its role in the ultimate demise of the USSR.

Isaiah Berlin's celebrated radio lectures on six formative anti-liberal thinkers were delivered on the BBC's Third Programme in 1952. They are published here for the first time, fifty years on. Freedom and its Betrayal is one of Isaiah Berlin's earliest and most convincing expositions of his views on human freedom and the history of ideas, views which later found expression in such famous works as 'Two Concepts of Liberty', and were at the heart of his lifelong work on the Enlightenment and its critics. In his lucid examinations of sometimes difficult ideas Berlin demonstrates that a balanced understanding and a resilient defence of human liberty depend on learning both from the errors of freedom's alleged defenders and from the dark insights of its avowed antagonists. This book throws light on the early development of Berlin's ideas, and supplements his already published writings with fuller treatments of Helvétius, Rousseau, Fichte, Hegel and Saint-Simon, with the ultra-conservative traditionalist Maistre bringing up the rear. Freedom and its Betrayal shows Berlin at his liveliest and most torrentially spontaneous, testifying to his talents as a teacher of rare brilliance and impact. Listeners tuned in expectantly each week to the broadcasts and found themselves mesmerised by Berlin's astonishingly fluent extempore style. A leading historian of ideas, who was then a schoolboy, records that the lectures 'excited me so much that I sat, for every talk, on the floor beside the wireless, taking notes'. This excitement is at last recreated here for all to share.

A man returns to France to unravel the truth about his father’s actions during WWII in “a novel of scope, substance and strength all too rare today” (Spectator). Widely acclaimed as Allan Massie’s finest novel, A Question of Loyalties explores the complexities of loyalty, nationality, and family legacy after the horrors of World War II. Rife with the anguish of hindsight and the irony of circumstance, this powerful book is “addictively narrated . . . Out of one broken man’s story evolves the weighty history and treachery of a whole era” (The Times). Etienne de Balafré, half French, half English, and raised in South Africa, returns to postwar France to unravel the tangled history of his father. Was Lucien de Balafré a patriot who served his country as best he could in difficult times, or a treacherous collaborator in the Vichy government? “I have no hesitation in calling it a major novel . . . Massie here has vigorously pushed back the narrowing boundaries of English fiction.” —Spectator

This acclaimed, influential work applies the concepts of systemic family therapy to the emotional life of congregations. Edwin H. Friedman shows how the same understanding of family process that can aid clergy in their pastoral role also has important ramifications for negotiating congregational dynamics and functioning as an effective leader. Clergy from diverse denominations, as well as family therapists and counselors, have found that this book directly addresses the dilemmas and crises they encounter daily. It is widely used as a text in courses on family systems and pastoral care.
