cornerstone—the standard for all that we believe and do as his followers—and if the Bible bears witness to him (Luke 24:27), then the way we can be sure to develop a proper theology is by spending time in God's Word.

Knowing God is the first step to loving Him and living for Him. It’s not surprising, then, that one of the greatest callings God has given parents is to teach their children to know Him. But how does that happen? How can parents pass along the knowledge of God that leads to faith to the next generation? For centuries, parents have used the ancient method of learning and reciting questions and answers to teach the core doctrines of the faith. Through a regular rhythm of asking and answering questions about God and His ways, parents can introduce their children to God and help spark a hunger within them to explore the riches of the Scriptures for the rest of their lives. Cornerstones provides parents with two hundred questions and answers about God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit, sin, redemption, the church, restoration, and more. Each question and answer is written to make these foundational doctrines accessible for a child. Additional commentary is provided to equip parents to engage in meaningful conversations about God in everyday life.
Most of us know that a cornerstone is a special stone, set aside and selected to be placed at the corner when building a building, ... Have you ever stopped to think that we have cornerstones in our own personal lives?

One person said, "I have read many a book in my life, but never one like this!" Tom moves from some of the simplest of entities in our life to some of the most complex issues of today. "It's some of those simple things that hold great value for us." He admonishes, "Follow truth, not people." He tackles such a wide variety of topics that you never know what's coming next. You may view your IQ differently than ever before! He tackles abortion, not in debate but with one simple question! He touches on alcohol, drugs, and tobacco, not in a condemning way but with thoughts he hopes will stick in your mind. This book does not come across as a preach-at-you book, rather, a passing on of thoughts to encourage you. "Don't let anyone think for you! It's your life. You're the one who has to live it and leave it!" Shootings, voting, fairness-he takes them on. Oh yes, he tackles faith. He suggests you must have a TBS to have a Bible faith. A what? A TBS? You'll see! It's a thought provoker, highly entertaining, out of the box. Surprisingly, he somewhat minimizes politics. Tom maintains it is E-C-O-N-O-M-I-C-S that we need to understand. Like what works and what doesn't work. He addresses what he calls the "what's one vote" disease. He calls evolution a hoax and backs it up. He says we need to pull out the Golden Rule, dust it off, and hang it back up. The most stirring section may be "Finding God within Your Skin." You will never look at yourself in the mirror the same ever again! He takes you into areas of thought where you've probably never been before, like down into the inner chambers of your heart...where no one goes...but you and God.

In the 21st Century, people are the competitive advantage. The talent and level of dedication of an organization's workforce make the difference in achieving success. The traditional command-oriented leadership style is not enough to keep today's employees motivated—they need to be engaged. They need passion, connection, and inspiration, and a willingness to put forth their best efforts to benefit themselves and their organization. The Cornerstones of Engaging Leadership connects what we know about engagement on an organizational level to what an individual leader can do to increase engagement. Using real-world examples, Wilson reveals the key actions leaders must take to connect with and engage others: •Build trust •Leverage unique motivators •Manage performance from a people-centric perspective •Engage emotions By committing to these four cornerstones of engaging leadership, leaders can unleash the potential of others and inspire effective performance. Through practice tools and exercises (all available for download on a supplemental CD-ROM), readers are challenged to explore, reflect upon, and apply key concepts and techniques of the engaging leader approach.

This book deals with the role of national parliaments in the perspective of European Integration. It examines the relationship between national parliaments and the European Parliament. In order to find a solution to the problem of the democratic deficit in the EU, Smith concludes that it is vital for European Integration to create an efficient decision making process which is best served by centralisation and majority voting. However, this runs counter to democratic legitimation, which is dependent on institutions at the national level. The book is unique in that the description of national models for parliamentary influence is used as an example for a similar model at the European level. It is largely based on a conference which was held at the Faculty of Law, University of Oslo, Norway in June 1995.

An emergent approach to organizational strategy making assumptions that few organizations actually realize the goal of deliberative, top-down strategic planning, and that effective strategy making occurs on a continual basis and is a shared activity of the entire organization. This innovative book provides the first in-depth look at how real organizations are formulating and implementing strategic change under this new paradigm. The authors have dug deep into three large and varied organizations (Hewlett-Packard, the California State University system, and the County of Los Angeles) and identified each one's efforts to develop a new strategic planning process better-suited to match the current pace of change and environmental unpredictability. The book is filled with vignettes, quotes, and real-world examples that illustrate the trend toward faster, more adaptive strategic planning processes. It is relevant for a wide range of business, governmental, and non-profit settings, and should be required reading in any course on strategic planning.

This book is concerned with the conditions under which epistemic reasons provide justification for beliefs. The author draws on metaethical theories of reasons and normativity and then applies his theory to various contemporary debates in epistemology. In the first part of the book, the author outlines what he calls the dispositional architecture of epistemic reasons. The author offers and defends a dispositional account of how propositional and doxastic justification are related to one another. He then argues that the dispositional view has the resources to provide an acceptable account of the notion of the basing relation. In the second part of the book, the author examines how his theory of epistemic reasons bears on the issues involving perceptual reasons. He defends dogmatism about perceptual justification against conservatism and shows how his dispositional framework illuminates certain claims of dogmatism and its adherence to justification internalism. Finally, the author applies his dispositional framework to epistemological topics including the structure of defeat, self-knowledge, reasoning, emotions and motivational internalism. The Dispositional Architecture of Epistemic Reasons demonstrates the value of employing metaethical considerations for the justification of beliefs and propositions. It will be of interest to scholars and advanced students working in epistemology and metaethics.
