The Dawn Mistaken for Dusk

If God So Loved the World, Why Can't We?

In his first book conceived and acquired specifically to be delivered electronically, Leonard Sweet contends that the church is blind to the changes that are dragging us into the future. Therefore, it is losing its influence as an agent of change and grace in the world. "There are now some companies who absolutely want to change the world more than the church," writes Sweet. He sees the church at a crossroads. It will either see the future as a new dawn and therefore embrace it as opportunity. Or, it will see the future as dusk and therefore hide from the darkness of the world. Sweet believes that God will be in the future, with or without us, and that an "Acts 27" movement is afoot. This book serves as a "naturalization manual" to help Christians achieve full citizenship in the new, postmodern world. It will teach them how to go from being immigrants to natives. From foreigners in a strange land to people of God, confident and at home in a rapidly changing world.

New Technology

Terrorism and an International Prevention-repression Strategy

From the second half of the the years '90s, we are assisting to a progressive internationalisation of 'Terror(ism)', through the diffusion on a large scale fo the New Technology as an essential component of our lives. National and International Terriorism, in fact, has found a great ally in technological instruments and, in particular, Internet, since they guarantee a high level of anonymity and they represent new channels of communication, essential to keep internal contacts among the members of a single terrorist organisation and they are fundamental instruments also to develop an international network of connections both for idelogogical support, as well as for massive recruitment campaign. New technology has also developed new and more aggressive "technological weapons" (mass-destruction armaments and CBRNE weapons), used by the criminal terrorist organisations for creating new and alternative forms of blackmailing the International Institutions and the 'Civil Society'. These armaments are also considered a new source of raising funds for financing terrorism, because of the illegal trade of toxic and nuclear material. The time is mature for clarifying the concrete subversive capability of the several Terrorist movements that at a National-Intentional level represents a menace to the 'global security', in the light also of the fact that New Technology has progressively contributed in creating a world without spatial and temporal frontiers, through Internet and the technological instruments. This research also has the aim to develop a new program of prevention/repression strategy against Terrorism in any form and idelogical identity, to shorten the distance between the Terrorist phenomenon and the capability of the International Society to prevent and control this 'pathological' problem, using the same technological instruments exploited by Terrorism: from an 'asymmetric war' to a more and more 'symmetrical war', where the battle-field is the the Informational Technology.

"Since the world began, people have been looking for love in the wrong place. As a result, theyve found themselves in situations of rape, love triangles, living together, getting caught in the act, and various promiscuous lifestyles, with passions out of control. And there seems to be no way out. This book contains stories about men and women in the Bible who struggled with the same love situations that are prevalent in our society today. The author shows what the Scriptures have to say about how to handle these problems. She also presents solutions, ending with the ultimate love story, which pictures Jesus as our Kinsman Redeemer. No matter what your situation, the loving kindness of God is available to you. And His love never fails. The right place to look for love is God"
