Book Short Summary:

First Adam vs. Last Adam offers a viewpoint of America’s embrace of our national government and those citizens who also embrace the kingdom of God. The current inability of our political leaders to find workable solutions to our country’s problems is troubling for many Americans. Confidence in our leader’s ability to effectively govern is a low point. This brief commentary takes the reader back to the fundamental perspective of the original writers of the Declaration of Independence. This document forms the basis of America’s initial desire to be free from onerous laws imposed by the British sovereign. Today our government has reassumed the role of a sovereign king in many matters. That authority needs to be challenged with the authority of the kingdom of God. This is a call for Christians to reflect upon misguided leadership offering inadequate solutions.

Book Short Summary:

In A History of Myanmar since Ancient Times, Michael Aung-Thwin and Maitrii Aung-Thwin take us from the sacred stupas of the plains of Pagan to grand, colonial-era British mansions, revealing the storied past and rich culture of this country. The book traces the traditions and transformations of Myanmar’s communities over nearly three millennia, from the relics of its Neolithic civilization to the splendors of its pre-colonial kingdoms, its encounters with British colonialism and the struggles for the republic that followed the end of World War II. The authors also consider the complexities of present-day life in Myanmar and examine the key political events and debates of the last twenty-five years that have brought the world’s attention to the country. By exploring current developments within the broader patterns of Myanmar's history, culture and society, they provide a nuanced perspective on the issues and questions surrounding Myanmar’s future. This updated edition considers the changes that have taken place since the elections of 2010, the reforms that the civilian government introduced, and the ramifications of the country's new international status. It also assesses the implications of the 2012 by-elections, the ensuing political dynamics among various stakeholders, and the continuing socio-economic challenges facing Myanmar in the twenty-first century. The most comprehensive history of Myanmar ever published in the English language, this book makes a significant contribution to our understanding of Southeast Asian history and will surprise, challenge, and inform in equal measure.

Book Short Summary:

My dear lads: Although so long a time has elapsed since the great civil war in England, men are still almost as much divided as they were then as to the merits of the quarrel, almost as warm partisans of the one side or the other. Most of you will probably have formed an opinion as to the rights of the case, either from your own reading, or from hearing the views of your elders. For my part, I have endeavored to hold the scales equally, to relate historical facts with absolute accuracy, and to show how much of right and how much of wrong there was upon either side. Upon the one hand, the king by his instability, bad faith, and duplicity alienated his best friends, and drove the Commons to far greater lengths than they had at first dreamed of. Upon the other hand, the struggle, begun only to win constitutional rights, ended--owing to the ambition, fanaticism, and determination to override all rights and all opinions save their own, of a numerically insignificant minority of the Commons, backed by the strength of the army--in the establishment of the most complete despotism England has ever seen. It may no doubt be considered a failing on my part that one of my heroes has a very undue preponderance of adventure over the other. This I regret; but after the scale of victory turned, those on the winning side had little to do or to suffer, and one's interest is certainly with the hunted fugitive, or the slave in the Bermudas, rather than with the prosperous and well-to-do citizen. Yours very sincerely, G.A. HENTY.

Book Short Summary:

A Tale of two Cities Charles Dickens, the author was an English writer, journalist, editor and social critic. His famous plays are - A Tale of two cities', 'No Thorough fare, The Frozen Deep. A Tale of Two Cities is an historical novel. It narrates the story of the French Doctor Manette and his 18-year-long imprisonment in Paris. When he released from his imprisonment he left for London. The two cities are in London only. Actually the first plot deals with the rebirth of Dr. Manette and about those situations and reasons for French Revolution by the lower classes and the Reign of Terror. The author asserts his belief in the possibility of transformation. The Prince ‘The Prince’ is basically a political treatise and a sort of guide for new princes and royals. It was published five years after Niccolo’s death. When he was alive, there were some controversy in his book. It was published only after seeking permission from the Medici pope Clement VII. The Prince is one of the best works of modern political philosophy, in which truth is highlighted rather than any abstract ideas or incidences. The beauty of the text is that it has a recognizable structure and author has indicated himself in most of the portions. The book narrates mostly about princedoms. That too about hereditary princedoms.

Green Politics is Eutopian

Book Short Summary:

There have been various thinkers who have attempted to explain the Earth-altering (even ecocidal) features in modern life. Jacques Ellul, for instance, a French intellectual, became famous for his exposition of technique. But technique does not adequately address the institutional context out of which technique itself arises. In these essays, Paul Gilk stands on the shoulders of two American scholars in particular. One is world historian Lewis Mumford, whose work spans fifty years of scholarship. The other is classics professor Norman O. Brown, who brought his erudition into a systematic study of Freud. From these intellectuals especially, Gilk concludes that the accelerating ecocidal characteristics of globalisation are inherent manifestations of perfectionist, utopian, predatory institutions endemic to civilisation. Our great difficulty in arriving at or accepting this conclusion is that civilisation contains no negatives it is strictly a positive construct. We are therefore incapable of thinking critically about it. A corrective is slowly emerging from Green intellectuals. Green politics, says Gilk, is not utopian but eutopian. It is not aimed at perfectionist immortality but, rather, at earthly wholeness. Yet the ethical message of Green politics confronts a society saturated with utopian mythology. The question is to what extent, and at what speed, ecological and cultural breakdown will dissolve civilised, utopian certitudes and provide the requisite openings for the growth of Green, eutopian culture.

Book Short Summary:

"We're all natural-born legalists," says author Bob Christopher. "We try to live for God, but it's impossible to do." Why? Because all our efforts and ideas are based on the same fear-based, guilt-driven plot line: Try harder. As you've undoubtedly noticed, it just doesn't work. Simple Gospel, Simply Grace showcases an alternative, which is actually God's original plan: Everything you're trying to achieve in the Christian life has already been given to you—from God, by grace, in Christ. Do you struggle to receive what God has freely given? How can you begin to experience true freedom, assurance of your forgiveness, and victory over sin? How can the power that raised Jesus from the dead enable you to live and love the way He did? You'll discover the answers in this crystal-clear portrayal of the simple gospel—which is simply grace.

Book Short Summary:

The return of Jesus and the coming of his kingdom will mark a pivotal point in human history. For Christians, it will also mark the beginning of their immortality. Here in this book lie the answers to the question of what we will be doing for the first one thousand years of our eternal existence. You are invited to take a personal journey and discover your destiny and first steps into that future—not in heaven but here on the earth with Jesus during his millennial reign. When the Kingdom Comes is the first book to thoughtfully and accurately detail the future of Christians, commencing with the Rapture and ending with the consummation of the Millennial Kingdom. It brings into sharp focus three things: the beginning of eternity for the believer, the continuation of humanity and its history, and the actual physical presence of Jesus for one thousand years. All three of these things are related through Scripture as happening in connection with the earth. For most Christians, the idea of eternity brings with it the anticipation of heaven and its unimaginable wonder. Just as the church age was an unforeseen event to the disciples of Jesus, so, too, the reality of the millennial kingdom seems to be an inconsequential if not unforeseen event for Christians today. By starting with common conceptions and sometimes misconceptions of heaven, the reader is presented with a careful and thoughtful challenge from Scripture about his or her assumptions of eternity in contrast to our place in Jesus’s kingdom on earth. In this way, a wonderful and mysterious door is opened, not unlike Dorothy stepping into the land of Oz, as the realities of the kingdom of Jesus and the believer’s likely experiences in it are brought to light.

Book Short Summary:

In this study of early modern Makassar in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, William Cummings traces the social, cultural, and political significance of the transition from oral to literate culture in one region of Indonesia. He examines "history-making"--the ways in which the past is perceived, interpreted, and used--at a crucial moment in early modern Makassar when conceptions of history are being transformed by the advent of literacy. Central to his argument is the notion that histories are not just records or representations of the past but are themselves forces or agents capable of transforming the worlds in which humans live. Not simply structured by the prevailing social, cultural, and ideological contexts in which they are made, they also shape these contexts. Making Blood White bears in important ways on the historiography of Southeast Asia in general and will be read by students of the region's history and anthropology as well as by those interested in the relationships of history, literacy, and politics in premodern Asia.

Book Short Summary:

Give Us This Day is a unique daily devotional commentary for the entire New Testament based on the ancient method called lectio divina. Lectio divina, or "divine reading," is the method used by the early church and countless Christians through the centuries to read the Scriptures to form and transform the soul more than merely to inform the mind. Give Us This Day deals in depth with entire passages and their contexts. Rather than selecting only certain portions of the New Testament to write about, Fr. Charles has written a devotional for each and every passage of the New Testament. Fr. Charles writes for the whole person: he's not afraid to use his sense of humor, and he carefully relates the Bible not only to the individual's life but also to the life of the church. At the end of each day's devotional, an appropriate prayer is offered, as well as "Points for Further Reflection" on the day's lesson. Each devotional concludes with a suggested resolution to put into effect what the Spirit has stirred up in the heart of the reader during the course of his reading, meditation, and prayer.

Studying small portions of Scripture is worthwhile and necessary. Nevertheless one of the first steps of discipleship after salvation should be an understanding of the big picture in the Bible. God's Unfolding Story of Salvation teaches believers that the biblical storyline is Christ-centered. Often people think of redemptive history only in terms of its promises in the Old Testament and its fulfillment in the New Testament. There is much more to the story than that. In the Old Testament the Holy Spirit also points to Christ through preparation for his birth, pictures or types, and anticipation. Since God's story ultimately affects each one of us, it is worth the time and effort required to understand it. If you do this, you will discover a pearl of great value. Forgiveness of sin and reconciliation with God are the greatest needs of everyone past, present, and future. This redemption story brings glory to God and benefits believers.

Book Short Summary:

The longest distance in the universe is between the head and heart. For Christ-followers, it is the chasm between what we say we believe in our minds and what we truly believe in our hearts: a split between our statements about God and our experience of Him. This divide is everywhere around us, causing untold devastation. It is found in the double lives of believers and in the hypocrisy of church leaders, but mainly we see it in ourselves. It is the default position of every human heart. In Divided: When the Head and Heart DonÆt Agree, Bill Delvaux exposes this divide and offers strategies to tackle it. The actual journey to cross the divide is sketched out, an epic journey that will take us into our deepest fear and shame and on into the wonder of GodÆs presence. For becoming undivided is not just another task. ItÆs the pathway into the very heart of the Father. Features include: Strategies for closing the divide between head and heart Specific prayers for each stage of the spiritual journey Thought-provoking questions for spiritual conversation or reflection

Book Short Summary:

Maybe you’re a part of the great majority of people in the world who don’t go to church. Or maybe you used to go to church and you don’t go anymore. You may even be the person who is going to church and walking away every time feeling worse than when you came, or wondering what the point was. But what if your idea of church is flawed? What if the thing you’re staying away from, the thing you decided to leave, or any collection of bad experiences is actually a false impression of what Jesus and his church are really all about? And what if you realized that although Jesus started this thing called the church and is in charge of it, Jesus never actually said that you are supposed to go to church? Jesus never said to go to church. But he did say that he would build his church, and he did say that his followers would be his church. That’s right: Jesus invites you to follow him and to never go to church again. So if you’re open to giving church another chance or seeing it for what Jesus always intended for it to be, then prepare to discover within these pages what you may have been missing—but looking for—all along.
