This book is for the new Christian writer or the writer looking to decide how God wants them to incorporate their faith into their writing. How do we know what the Lord wants us to do? Are we being called to write or do we want to write for Him as an offering? What is required of the author using their writing for the Lord and how do they go about it? What do we really want to achieve with our writing, and how do we define success?

When young Sam Duncan finds himself accused of a horrible crime, he must grow up fast to prove his innocence, bring his mother's killer to justice and find the peace he needs to move on with his life. Surviving his journey will take the kindness of both strangers and friends and the grace of God. When justice turns against him, he will have to rely on the moral compass of two unerring lawmen, the strength in one young girl and the kind hearts of a rancher and his wife and two missionaries bound to see that the work of the Lord is done. Even a cantankerous old mountain man and his tired old donkey will play their part in God's plan for this young man. Hounded is a delightful tale of this journey to both physical and spiritual adulthood for Sam and his friends in the midst of hardship and struggle. With humor and suspense, readers follow a passel of God's everyday heroes as they wind their way through this adventure.

The greatest pursuit in life is holiness. Without holiness, “no one will see the Lord” (Heb. 12:14). Unfortunately, individuals, churches, even entire denominations often practice distorted spiritual formation. As a result, spiritual growth is hindered, personal witness is damaged, the Great Commission is inhibited, and God is dishonored. The solution to distorted spiritual formation is a holistic approach, centered on the Great Commandment. The Pursuit of Holistic Holiness provides a biblical theology of spiritual formation, identifies pitfalls of imbalanced spiritual growth, and offers practical solutions to help Christians recognize and overcome deficiencies in the transformation process. Whatever your spiritual maturity level, this book will facilitate your path forward. The pursuit of holistic holiness has the potential to spark a reformation in the Church!

Genre studies and genre approaches to literacy instruction continue to develop in many regions and from a widening variety of approaches. Genre has provided a key to understanding the varying literacy cultures of regions, disciplines, professions, and educational settings. GENRE IN A CHANGING WORLD provides a wide-ranging sampler of the remarkable variety of current work. The twenty-four chapters in this volume, reflecting the work of scholars in Europe, Australasia, and North and South America, were selected from the over 400 presentations at SIGET IV (the Fourth International Symposium on Genre Studies) held on the campus of UNISUL in Tubarão, Santa Catarina, Brazil in August 2007—the largest gathering on genre to that date. The chapters also represent a wide variety of approaches, including rhetoric, Systemic Functional Linguistics, media and critical cultural studies, sociology, phenomenology, enunciation theory, the Geneva school of educational sequences, cognitive psychology, relevance theory, sociocultural psychology, activity theory, Gestalt psychology, and schema theory. Sections are devoted to theoretical issues, studies of genres in the professions, studies of genre and media, teaching and learning genre, and writing across the curriculum. The broad selection of material in this volume displays the full range of contemporary genre studies and sets the ground for a next generation of work.

The years from 1852 to 1890 marked a controversial period in Mormonism, when the church's official embrace of polygamy put it at odds with wider American culture. In this study, Christine Talbot explores the controversial era, discussing how plural marriage generated decades of cultural and political conflict over competing definitions of legitimate marriage, family structure, and American identity. In particular, Talbot examines "the Mormon question" with attention to how it constructed ideas about American citizenship around the presumed separation of the public and private spheres. Contrary to the prevailing notion of man as political actor, woman as domestic keeper, and religious conscience as entirely private, Mormons enfranchised women and framed religious practice as a political act. The way Mormonism undermined the public/private divide led white, middle-class Americans to respond by attacking not just Mormon sexual and marital norms but also Mormons' very fitness as American citizens. Poised at the intersection of the history of the American West, Mormonism, and nineteenth-century culture and politics, this carefully researched exploration considers the ways in which Mormons and anti-Mormons both questioned and constructed ideas of the national body politic, citizenship, gender, the family, and American culture at large.

Creation, Covenant, Sin, and Salvation is a primer for biblical theology that is accessible to lay readers of all ages. This is the ideal book for those seeking a short, accessible synopsis of the Christian worldview. Sprinkled with anecdotes and illustrations, the book eases readers into a succinct yet comprehensive discussion of biblical thought. The final chapter explains the authority, practical value, and intended purpose of Scripture. Meadors inspires readers to think critically about the real life believability of the Christian faith, especially its intellectual coherence. In keeping with biblical theology, the book affirms the continuity of biblical revelation from beginning to end before consummating in the resurrection of the dead and God's restoration of all creation.
