Five Years in the Life of Joshua Parks

It is the year 2050 and sixteen-year-old Joshua Parks joins the Army. After basic training his overseas year is spent in South Korea. The North does what it has been doing for fifty years, shooting missiles over Japan. This time the bomb hits mainland Japan, killing over a million people. The Americans and South Koreans battle their way north until one morning the ground shakes like an earthquake. The soldiers receive word that the United States has hit a Northern city with a nuclear weapon, also killing a million people. The fighting becomes more intense as the soldiers pushing up from the south gain ground on the north. The Air Force and Navy send a constant barrage of missiles toward the North. The north wants to send a nuclear missile to Seoul, South Korea, but the Chinese try to tell them that would give the United States reason to wipe the north out. By the time China talks the North Korean government into surrendering, the DMZ has moved considerably north. Joshua spends an additional six months in Korea helping rebuild the new DMZ, then spends the rest of his service time in the states. Joshua finds he has a couple of problems he needs to solve. While in the Army Joshua makes time to get married to Hope Carson, a girl he met before leaving for the service. Joshua gets a good job in the correctional system and Hope gets pregnant. Things are looking up, until tragedy strikes again. Joshua has met many a character in five years, but he has to learn to take the good with the bad.

Nurturing Child and Adolescent Spirituality

Nurturing Child and Adolescent Spirituality: Perspectives from the World's Religious Traditions provides a forum for prominent religious scholars to examine the state of religious knowledge and theological reflection on spiritual development in childhood and adolescence. Featuring essays from thinkers representing the world's major religious traditions, the book introduces new voices, challenges assumptions, raises new questions, and broadens the base of knowledge and investment in this important domain of life. It specifically and intentionally focuses on theological and philosophical perspectives from within religious traditions, creating space for the religious traditions to find their voices. Nurturing Child and Adolescent Spirituality is firmly grounded in the language and priorities of religious studies, and helps stimulate explorations of whether and how religious communities are tapping their own wisdom and strengths in nurturing today's young people in a complex and changing world. Nurturing Child and Adolescent Spirituality will set the stage for new waves of scholarship and dialogue within and across traditions, disciplines, and cultures that will enrich understanding and strengthen how the world's religious traditions, and others, understand and cultivate the spiritual lives of children and adolescents around the globe.

Encyclopedia of Soviet Life

A by-product of the amazing changes now taking place within the Soviet Union is a change in rhetoric no less than reality. Under Gorbachev, the Russian language has been changing parallel with "novoe politichaskoe myshenie - "new political thinking - with the effect that such new expressions as have flooded the Russian language clash with the less yielding realities of Soviet economy and society. The purpose of this volume is to clarify this dynamic in Soviet life, in which stagnation and decay confront hopes and expectations for liberalization. Zemtsov argues that the Soviet political language is self-contradictory, fractured into polarities of good and evil and thus depriving the Russian language of its basic subtlety, coherence, and inner logic. This work brings to life the Orwellian world of double-speak in a post-totalitarian environment. The Soviet language has two basic components: fictions which Communist ideology proclaims as reality, and realities that are portrayed in the guise of fictions. In this sense, Zemtsov undertakes to do for the Soviet language what the great H. L. Mencken achieved for the American language -show the reality of Soviet life by making plain the fictive qualities of Soviet ideology. This is a basic library reference work, a volume of indispensable utility for political scientists, area experts, and policy analysts. It offers a taxonomy enriched by a deep, personal knowledge of the Russian language by its author. "Encyclopedia of Soviet Life "is at one and the same time a basic primer of Soviet contemporary politics, a deep portrait of the psychology of totalitarian manipulation, and a sensitive appreciation of the nobler aspirations of the Russian people that is part and parcel of their great language.
