Congo Dawn

by Jeanette Windle

The smallest flame shines brightest against the darkest night.

If absolute power breeds absolute corruption, what happens when a multinational corporation with unlimited funds hires on a private military company with unbridled power, especially in a war-torn African nation where any governmental accountability is for sale at only too cheap a price?

While former Marine lieutenant Robin Duncan is no stranger to corruption or conspiracy, she has always been able to tell the good guys from the bad. At first, her current assignment is no different: working on behalf of an international corporation to insurgent killer. But as a ruthless global conspiracy begins to surface, run by powerful men who can’t afford to leave witnesses, Robin doesn’t know who to trust. Nor can she see any way to save the Ituri rainforest villagers she has sworn to protect. Why is God silent amid all the pain and injustice? And how do these people of faith continue to rejoice in their suffering?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: As a child of missionary parents, award-winning author and journalist JEANETTE WINDLE grew up in equatorial South America’s guerilla hot zones, has lived in six countries, and traveled in more than thirty. Her detailed research and writing is so realistic that it has prompted government agencies to question her to determine if she has received classified information. Such experiences have birthed more than twenty fiction and non-fiction titles, including award-winning novels Veiled Freedom, Freedom’s Stand, and political suspense bestseller CrossFire.



Jesus, Iconoclast: Master Practitioner-Preacher of Radical Compassion & Essential Humility

by Don Erickson

Jesus, Iconoclast: Master Practitioner-Preacher of Radical Compassion & Essential Humility examines the iconoclastic life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. From the “riches in the rags” story of the nativity to his compassion-moved sacrifice to save his disciples, this book reflects on Jesus as a social and religious outcast who in turn ministers first and foremost to fellow outcasts, knowing they heard him most clearly because he embodied them.

Jesus, Iconoclast shows that the humility embodied by the misfits, outcasts, and “the vulnerables” in society was for Jesus the benchmark for inclusion in God’s Kingdom. The book also looks at Jesus’ approach to religious pluralism, a reality he experienced in ancient Palestine under Roman rule. It was an approach that evidenced Jesus pointing to expressions of compassion rather than to mere faith. In addition, the book examines the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection, offering a view that both asserts the centrality of the Passion but also bases it in context and avoids universalizing it away. The crucifixion itself is shown to be a portrait of embodied, representative compassion that is salvific in its reach. Inspired by the powerful teachings of liberation theology as well as a Buddhist-influenced approach to the gospels, Jesus, Iconoclast: Master Practitioner-Preacher of Radical Compassion & Essential Humility gives a fresh, poignant portrait of Jesus that defies Trump-America’s glossing over and ignoring of Jesus’ radically compassionate life and teaching.

The author Don Erickson is a pastor and poet with some 20 years of experience. He is a graduate of Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York and a student of Dr. James Cone, iconic originator of Liberation Theology. He is also a serious student of Buddhist philosophy, formally studying Korean Buddhism in South Korea and practicing as a Buddhist layperson under now-deceased Zen teacher Thich Giac Hai. His formative years were spent in the Evangelical tradition, capped by three years at an Evangelical Christian college in Southern Ohio. In the early 1990’s, he left the American Evangelical tradition, transferred to a public university, and began an academic study of Religion. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies from North Carolina State University and a Master of Arts in Theology from Union. Above all, Rev. Don is a lifelong student and disciple of Jesus of Nazareth and is continually inspired and transformed by his teaching, his life, his death, and his life and death as a teaching.



The Picture of Happiness

by Dean Cadbalt

THE PICTURE OF HAPPINESS follows the life of David Walls, a man stuck in a life-long conflict between his Christian faith and his sexuality. On one of his usual trips to a gay bathhouse, he meets Jonas, a man half his age but facing many of the issues he is. As a rather ambiguous relationship develops between the two of them, David reflects on his life in an effort to save Jonas from the heartache and emptiness he has experienced – and to find for himself a life worth living. THE PICTURE OF HAPPINESS is not a romance; it is a novel of relationships. It seeks to put flesh on a gospel beyond religion, beyond doctrine to explore what it means to truly love one another. And yes, to be truly gay and truly Christian.



Multiculturalism: Dark Site

by Rob Morgan

About book:

The term multiculturalism first came into public discourse in 1965 in Canada, one of the first countries to provide policy support to the concept of a society actively tolerating the coexistence of various cultures within it. In 1971, the Canadian government enacted a policy supporting the social importance and necessity of migration of various groups into the country, consequently promoting tolerance of various cultures in Canadian society. This is the first formal recognition and promotion of the concept, including its associated beliefs, values, and ideas, by a government. Following Canada in this formal move is the government of Australia, which in the 1980s formally adopted policies supporting multiculturalism in addressing its issues on migrants.

The word â??multicultural’, however, has been around even before the Second World War, and many states and governments have long toyed and mulled over the value of it. Relatedly, it has long been the subject of scholarly discourse and many scholars (loosely called multiculturalism theorists) have written and debated about the merits of multiculturalism as a necessary pursuit of a government for its society.

One of the popular faces on such scholarly discussion of multiculturalism was Stuart Hall (1932-2014), a Briton scholar and one of the founders of British Cultural Studies school of thought in the United Kingdom. In the 1950’s, Hall and his colleagues were one of the first voices who actively popularized the word â??multicultural’. It happened when they argued that contrary to the then-popular theory that culture is a concept of polarity (that is, either one is good or bad, high or low, and thus society must select on which one deserves tolerance and pursuit), it is actually multicultural. This means that society’s culture is a product of several cultures blending into it. This argument of Hall and his colleagues was a breakthrough theory in the 1950s and received both keen interest and sharp criticism from other scholars and even policy-makers. In the succeeding periods, Hall would later gain recognition as the â??Father of Multiculturalism’.

Many other scholars have also shown support and argued for the merits of the â??multiculturalist theory’ started by Hall and his partners. In 2002, for example, the scholar C. James Trotman supported the value of multiculturalism as a policy endeavor, because it “uses several disciplines to highlight neglected aspects of our social history, particularly the histories of women and minoritiesâ?¦ By closing gaps, by raising consciousness about the past, multiculturalism tries to restore a sense of wholeness in a postmodern era that fragments human life and thought.”
Tariq Modood, a professor from the University of Bristol and one of the scholars focusing on the theory of multiculturalism, voiced a similar opinion with Trotman, argued that multiculturalism “is most timely and necessary, and […] we need more not less”.

Formally, the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy defines multiculturalism as “a body of thought in political philosophy about the proper way to respond to cultural and religious diversity.” The term loosely encompasses the promotion and active accommodation of the rights, cultures, and traditions of various groups in society, particularly those falling into minority groups. In many nations actively promoting it, multiculturalism covers the rights of various minority groups such as gender minorities and African-Americans in the USA, Muslims in Europe–particularly those at the Western side and Indigenous populations in many countries down South.

THE BONDAGE OF THE WILL: Luther’s Reply to Erasmus’ On Free Will

by Martin Luther

This eBook edition of “The Bondage of the Will” has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
On the Bondage of the Will was Martin Luther’s reply to Desiderius Erasmus’ work “On Free Will,” which had appeared in 1524 as Erasmus’ first public attack on Luther after Erasmus had been wary about the methods of Luther for many years. At issue was whether human beings, after the Fall of Man, are free to choose good or evil. Erasmus had asserted that all humans possessed free will and that the doctrine of predestination was not in accord with the teachings contained in the Bible. Luther’s response was to reason that sin incapacitates human beings from working out their own salvation, and that they are completely incapable of bringing themselves to God. The debate between Luther and Erasmus is one of the earliest of the Reformation over the issue of free will and predestination.

Fear? Not! (The Place of Passage Book 1)

by Mark E. Hundley

Imagine waking in the middle of the night in pitch black darkness and knowing you are in a place different than the one in which you went to sleep! Then imagine that as you are working to make sense of where you are, you become aware that you are NOT alone– that someone or someTHING is in that dark space with you! Finally, imagine that you are unable to move . . . Would you be the slightest bit fearful? This is the predicament in which Jeannie finds herself – frozen by fear; bound by invisible tethers; trapped in a dark place.

This is the plight in which Jeannie finds herself in a short story titled, Fear? NOT!–the first in a series of short stories set in a realm that constantly changes yet remains the same. In this first story you will meet Jeannie, a contemporary woman with an indomitable spirit who is plagued by fear. In the course of a normal day, she makes a “request” that thrusts her into a place she will visit many times in her life–a place you too may have visited or are about to.

Jeannie finds herself in the Place of Passage – a place between places; an alien yet familiar world. Who is with her? What will she discover? How will she leave? This is a place in which we have all found ourselves and a place that holds great promise . . . if we take the time necessary to explore.
