Union With Christ: the Heart of the Good News: Wendell P. Karsen
During the early years of the Cold War, England and the United States both found themselves reassessing their relationship with their former ally the Soviet Union, and the status of their own ´´special relationship´´ was far from certain. As Jeffrey P. Stone argues, maps from British and American news journals from this period became a valuable tool for relating the new realities of the Cold War to millions of readers. These maps were vehicles for political ideology, revealing both obvious and subtle differences in how each country viewed global geopolitics at the onset of the Cold War. Richly illustrated with news maps, cartographic advertisements, and cartoons from the era, this book reveals the idiomatic political, cultural, and material differences contributing to these divergent cartographic visions of the Cold War world.
On the evening of December 2, 1984, a chemical manufacturing plant in Bhopal, India owned by Union Carbide began leaking toxic gas into the residential areas surrounding the plant, and the resulting tragedy is considered one of the worst such disasters in history. 1.

Everyone, Christians included, knows what it’s like to feel isolated and alone. We’ve all wondered if anyone really understands us or truly cares about our lives. The good news is that we aren’t alone, and the gospel tells us why: Jesus, the Son of God, came to earth to be forever united with his people - to be one of us. In fact, he has so united himself with us that the Bible says we are literally ´´in” him. Far from being alone and lost, the Incarnation changes everything for the Christian. Writing with everyday listeners in mind, Elyse Fitzpatrick fleshes out the practical implications of our union with Christ and gives us confidence that we are not alone in this approachable and applicable devotional audiobook. 1.

Before you can resolve the issues of our day, you must be able to clarify them. Terms like same-sex marriage, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gay Christian are parts of daily discourse, yet enormous controversy surrounds them. They are the stuff of news headlines and vitriolic social media posts. But they also reflect stirrings of the heart in real people with real questions and concerns. Rosaria Champagne Butterfield, once a leftist professor in a committed lesbian relationship and now a confessional Christian, but always the thoughtful and compassionate professor, has written a follow-up to The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert. This book answers many of the questions people pose when she speaks at universities and churches, questions not only about her unlikely conversion to Christ but about personal struggles that the questioners only dare to ask someone else who has traveled a long and painful journey. Dr. Butterfield not only goes to great lengths to clarify some of today´s key controversies; she also traces their history and defines the terms that have become second nature today - even going back to God´s original design for marriage and sexuality as found in the Bible. She cuts to the heart of the problems and points the way to the solution, which includes a challenge to the church to be all that God intended it to be and for each person to find the true freedom that is found in Christ. Chapters include: Conversion: The Spark of a New Identity Identity: The Flame of Our Union in Christ Repentance: The Threshold to God and the Answer to Shame, Temptation, and Sin Sexual Orientation: Freud´s 19th-Century Category Mistake Self-Representation: What Does It Mean to Be ´´Gay´´? Conflict: When Sisters Disagree Community: Representing Christ to the World 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rosaria Champagne Butterfield.
