COFFEE SHOP CONVERSATIONS: EVANGELICAL PERSPECTIVES ON CURRENT ISSUES

COFFEE SHOP CONVERSATIONS: EVANGELICAL PERSPECTIVES ON CURRENT ISSUES
$23.25
New/Used: New
Description: There are numerous issues in the public square confronting the Western church. While there are any number of books available on each of the topics engaged in this collection of essays--just war, family planning, rest, immigration, politics, economic recession, fair trade, and health care--there is no compact guide that approaches each of these issues from an evangelical perspective. Coffee Shop Conversations does just that. The book does not aim to address each issue exhaustively; instead, it offers an evangelical approach to these topics, with the hopes that the door will be opened for further conversation. This book brings together the expertise of several evangelical scholars who are committed to serving the church through scholarship. The volume is therefore ideal for student ministry, Sunday school classes, small groups, and individuals interested in engaging the wider culture from a stance that is well reasoned and committed to biblical faith and practice. Endorsements: "Scholarly without being pedantic, helpful without being burdensome, this new work by a variety of young scholars provides discussion on a variety of needed topics. As an ethicist myself, I am always delighted to see young scholars delve into areas of needed discussion. I am excited this book has been written and that these essays might well receive a much broader audience. Of times when believers ought to be salt and light, that day is now! I commend this group for moving us from where we are to where we ought to be!" --Frank S. Page, President and Chief Executive Officer, Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee "Coffee Shop Conversations is as provocative as it is informative. The authors do not presume to offer 'definitive' answers to our generation's most pressing ethical problems, but they will certainly get us thinking. You'll disagree with some of it (I did) and you'll benefit from all of it. I can't imagine a more interesting book to use as a discussion starter with friends in any Christian setting." --Gary M. Burge, Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College and Graduate School About the Contributor(s): Russell L. Meek is an adjunct instructor and doctoral student at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He also serves as the associate editor for Journal for the Evangelical Study of the Old Testament and is an assistant book review editor for Journal of Hebrew Scriptures. N.

COLD WAR (P)

$19.50 - $26.00
Outstanding . . . The most accessible distillation of that conflict yet written. --The Boston Globe

Energetically written and lucid, it makes an ideal introduction to the subject. --The New York Times

The "dean of Cold War historians" (The New York Times) now presents the definitive account of the global confrontation that dominated the last half of the twentieth century. Drawing on newly opened archives and the reminiscences of the major players, John Lewis Gaddis explains not just what happened but why--from the months in 1945 when the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. went from alliance to antagonism to the barely averted holocaust of the Cuban Missile Crisis to the maneuvers of Nixon and Mao, Reagan and Gorbachev. Brilliant, accessible, almost Shakespearean in its drama, The Cold War stands as a triumphant summation of the era that, more than any other, shaped our own.

Gaddis is also the author of On Grand Strategy.

An applied, timely approach to "what works" in addressing crime and disorder Community and Problem-Oriented Policing: Effectively Addressing Crime and Disorder, Seventh Edition, is about policing at its most important and challenging levels-in neighborhoods and communities across the nation. Unique in perspective, its focus is on community- and problem-oriented policing and the processes that are being implemented to control and prevent crime, disorder, and fear. Every chapter features Learn by Doing exercises to promote critical-thinking and analytical skills. Extremely applied, this text focuses on daily processes and tactics and how and why agencies are revolutionizing their traditional philosophy and operations.
The Seventh Edition addresses head-on the most challenging aspects of policing in our age. Individual chapters focus on community policing in terms of diversity, terrorism, homeland security, and police being more constitutional and legitimate. Expanded emphasis is placed on smart policing, predictive policing, and intelligence-led policing as well as applications of new information technologies for problem solving. Additionally, chapters examine major issues and challenging crime problems (e.g., drugs, gangs, youth and crime, neighborhood disorder, domestic violence, and human trafficking), crime prevention, changing agency culture, evaluating problem-solving initiatives, cyberbullying and cybercrime, and special populations, and the future. New case studies, exhibits, and examples offer readers a view of what works in policing strategy and problem solving in the field today.
