It’s no secret that Christians can be ambivalent about music, both popular music and music in the church. In Resonate, author and Eternity Bible College professor Mark Beuving shows Christians how to better appreciate all kinds of music to the glory and pleasure of God. Beuving carefully examines music in the Bible and looks at the various and powerful ways in which music influences our world and our personal lives. He devotes the first section of the book to understanding music, both sacred and secular, exploring biblically why human beings make music and how it affects us. In the second section he highlights some of the many ways we engage with music, from writing songs to discussing artists with our neighbors to worshiping God with fellow believers. Wise and winsome, Beuving writes with an ear for recapturing the wonder of a beautiful part of God’s creation. Readers will be inspired to contemplate more deeply and appreciate more fully God’s good gift of music.

Since 2002 Terry Durose has had the privilege of training and preparing literally thousands of Christians for evangelistic mission. The insights he shares in this book come from deep Biblical reflection and his experience as a Pastor, Head of UK Missions for 'On The Move¿, and Director of Manchester City Mission. Originally written as a training course for Manchester City Mission evangelists, Resonate was redeveloped to help 'ordinary¿ Christians share their faith. This is what other have said about Resonate:Simply one of the best tools I¿ve ever seen for equipping people in personal evangelism¿ (¿Chick Yuill, Chair of Hope2008 in Greater Manchester)"..well researched and solidly biblical. It is a message of hope..." (¿Revd. Professor Andrew Igenoza) ¿An excellent course combining Biblical truth with down to earth experience. I am confident that resonate will enable many to effectively share Jesus¿ (¿Gareth Lloyd-Jones, Pastor, Motram, Evangelical Church)¿This has to be the best teaching I have ever heard on the subject of personal evangelism. ¿..inspires but also equips, taking the panic out of evangelism. Excellent! Thank you.¿ (¿Judith Rudd, Attendee of the resonate course)

Evolution and the Sin in Eden discusses the introduction of sin to man from an evolutionary standpoint, proposing a new theory that proposes that God does not choose to bestow sanctifying grace on everyone indiscriminately by force while interfacing modern theology with modern science. Instead, he waits for people to seek it as the Church does by looking for a likelihood of Christian education before allowing Baptism. This allowance of freedom by God prevents him from bestowing grace on all who enter the world because of the massive sin it leads to. Yet Christ restores the original condition of humans before Adam's sin through grace and baptism as told by St. Irenaeus, who was closer to Apostolic Tradition than the more pessimistic St. Augustine.

A call to action for the creative class and labor movement to rally against the power of Big Tech and Big Media Corporate concentration has breached the stratosphere, as have corporate profits. An ever-expanding constellation of industries are now monopolies (where sellers have excessive power over buyers) or monopsonies (where buyers hold the whip hand over sellers)—or both. In Chokepoint Capitalism, scholar Rebecca Giblin and writer and activist Cory Doctorow argue we’re in a new era of “chokepoint capitalism,” with exploitative businesses creating insurmountable barriers to competition that enable them to capture value that should rightfully go to others. All workers are weakened by this, but the problem is especially well-illustrated by the plight of creative workers. From Amazon’s use of digital rights management and bundling to radically change the economics of book publishing, to Google and Facebook’s siphoning away of ad revenues from news media, and the Big Three record labels’ use of inordinately long contracts to up their own margins at the cost of artists, chokepoints are everywhere. By analyzing book publishing and news, live music and music streaming, screenwriting, radio and more, Giblin and Doctorow deftly show how powerful corporations construct “anti-competitive flywheels” designed to lock in users and suppliers, make their markets hostile to new entrants, and then force workers and suppliers to accept unfairly low prices. In the book’s second half, Giblin and Doctorow then explain how to batter through those chokepoints, with tools ranging from transparency rights to collective action and ownership, radical interoperability, contract terminations, job guarantees, and minimum wages for creative work. Chokepoint Capitalism is a call to workers of all sectors to unite to help smash these chokepoints and take back the power and profit that’s being heisted away—before it’s too late.
