    Is it really possible to love one's enemies? That's the question that sparked a fascinating and, at times, terrifying journey into the heart of the Middle East during the summer of 2008. It was a trip that began in Egypt, passed beneath the steel-and-glass high-rises of Saudi Arabia, then wound through the bullet-pocked alleyways of Beirut and dusty streets of Damascus, before ending at the cradle of the world's three major religions: Jerusalem.

    "Tea with Hezbollah"
    Overall

    Ted Dekker is one of my favorite writers. In his non-fiction Tea with Hezbollah, he asks Muslim leaders: “What do you think about Jesus’ commandment to ‘love your neighbor as yourself?’” They all said they believe and practice Jesus’ commandment. But where is the evidence? The Middle East is full of hate, violence, murder and jihad. Which neighbor do these Muslims love? Ted doesn't analyze his findings.

    From author Paul Gilding comes an unflinching look at the challenges we face as a global climate crisis approaches - and the unique opportunities this crisis presents for moving toward an ethic of sustainability.

    Story

    Paul and I want the same things: More responsible use of our resources. But Paul seems to want us to be in compliance with standardized world laws. He never used the phrase New World Order, but it sure sounds like it to me.


    I, on the other hand, would rather employ freedom and personal responsibility. After all, where would we go if we found standardized world laws oppressive?

    It seemed that he said the same thing over and over. Maybe this is because I already understand the problems he is addressing. It could be cut way down, I think.

    One last thing… The reader pronounces “nuclear” as “nuke - u - lar” which hurts credibility.

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    "One Second After... hard to imagine..."

    Story

    The author takes a known phenomenon -EMP- which melts micro circuits - all micro circuits to weave a story about life without electricity.

    We don't normally think about this. A powerful EMP can come from special bombs detonated over our country... or it can be the result of a rare but inevitable solar flare. Such a flare happened in 1859 when there were no micro circuits to melt. Scientists say it can happen again.

    The story gets us thinking. Fortunately, there are things we can do now to soften the impact. But if we wait untill it happens, it will be much harder.

    God promised that he would never destroy men again with a flood. He made no such promise about cutting off electricity.
