Abortion: My Choice/God's Grace Christian Women Tell Their Stories

Details 

This compilation of stories and essays edited by Anne Eggebroten confronts the reality of abortion as a morally responsible choice being made by countless Christian women of all denominations. This explosive issue was only made illegal in the U.S. in 1873, but the 1960s saw a change in America's attitude towards the ability of women to take control of their own bodies which culminated in the Supreme Court's historic Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. Ever since the faith community has been divided on this subject, but everyone admits women have never stopped having abortions for a variety of reasons–health, rape, incest and unplanned pregnancies among other factors. The essays explore the biblical, theological and other arguments used in this issue.

Abused Child in Search of Safety, The: Lessons from Florida

Details 

Kent S. Miller, Ph.D., has gathered together this analysis of the current child welfare scene that should give everyone pause, because by abandoning our at-risk children we are sabotaging our nation's future. This is a succinct and factual look at a controversial and politicized subject. Richard Wexler, director of the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform says, "Not satisfied with scholarly treatises and second-hand accounts, Prof. Miller spent part of his retirement working in child welfare offices to see the problems for himself. The result is a book that combines the rigor of a scholar with the firsthand insights of a good journalista useful guide for anyone looking for ways to fix a badly broken system."

Admiral, The: The Memoirs of Albert Gleaves, Admiral USN

Details 

"A memoir to be enjoyed by all who are interested in our nation's naval heritage of going down to the sea in ships. When Albert Gleaves first entered the fleet after graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1877, he served in a navy largely inherited from the Civil War. He vividly describes his experiences in the old navy which was giving way to a modern fleet of steel and steam with colorful accounts of his cruises. This fine work, from the able pen of an officer who served his country with great distinction, is a welcome addition to the published literature about our navy and a reminder that our naval service's traditions and legends were laid by [such] gifted leaders. We owe them a debt of thanks," said Admiral James D. Watkins, former U.S. Secretary of Energy.

An appendix contains a study/syllabus and various lists of resources. Churches and other groups concerned about alcohol awareness will find these lists invaluable.

America in Peril

Details 

Long-term peace activist Bob Aldridge has spent years researching how our nation was beguiled into another senseless war. Here he describes how America is being conquered by a group of neoconservatives who under the guise of a "war on terror" and "national security" have systematically and stealthily undermined democracy and in the process are scrapping our Constitution. Starting with their wiggling into the White House and conjuring up a crisis to rally the country into a contrived war, he systematically paints a disturbing picture of the decay of civil rights, showing how the government is not only keeping tabs on the populace but is also steadily eroding humanitarian law so our Declaration of Independence has been relegated to history courses.

Children and Nonviolence

Details 

Authoritarian parents are so commonplace in our society that teenage rebellion is considered inevitable. We need a change of attitude, say Bob and Janet Aldridge, world renowned peace activists who have raised ten children. Cooperative decision-making in the family is the place to start. Raising nonviolent children means, first and foremost, creating an atmosphere of harmony in the home–where children need to feel nurtured and safe in a society that is increasingly violent. Sharing their faith pilgrimage of raising children in urban Amerrica, reconciling the larger political peace issues with ccreating a loving home, they give us a helpful guide for raising children peacefully and modeling a nonviolent approach towards decision-making.
