The Practical Art of Spiritual Conversation

release date: Mar 31, 2021
The Practical Art of Spiritual Conversation
The Practical Art of Spiritual Conversation is about the art of when, if, and how to engage in a spiritual conversation. The whens and the ifs inform the how. Christians can be so concerned with how to share the gospel that they often fail to consider where the person is spiritually and when, or even if, they should share the gospel. To be sure, the Scriptures are clear that followers of Christ must spread the good news. Yet there are times when sharing the gospel would be undeniably inappropriate. How, then, do gospel-centered, evangelistic Christians discern when to share Christ or when to stay silent? What determines when and if someone is even ready to hear the gospel? How does one meaningfully engage a person who has already accepted the gospel? Refined through tens of thousands of spiritual encounters, this book provides a helpful framework for discerning where a person is spiritually and how to encourage each person to take a step toward Christ regardless of where they may presently be in their faith journey. You will be equipped in the practical art of spiritual conversation so that you can meaningfully encourage every person to take a step toward Christ.

Free Trade Agreements and Global Labour Governance

release date: Sep 08, 2020
Free Trade Agreements and Global Labour Governance
Exploring the contentious relationship between trade and labour, this book looks at the impact of the EU’s ‘new generation’ free trade agreements on workers. Drawing upon extensive original research, including over 200 interviews with key actors across the EU and its trading partners, it considers the effectiveness of the trade-labour linkage in an era of global value chains. The EU believes trade can work for all, claiming that labour provisions in its free trade agreements ensure that economic growth and high labour standards go hand-in-hand. Yet whether these actually make a difference to workers is strongly contested. This book explains why labour provisions have been profoundly limited in the EU’s agreements with the CARIFORUM group, South Korea and Moldova. It also shows how the provisions were mismatched with the most pressing workplace concerns in the key export industries of sugar, automobiles and clothing, and how these concerns were exacerbated by the agreements’ commercial provisions. This pioneering approach to studying the trade-labour linkage provides insights into key debates on the role of civil society in trade governance, the relationship between public and private labour regulation, and the progressive possibilities for trade policy in the twenty-first century. This book will appeal to research scholars, post-graduate students, trade policy practitioners, policy researchers allied to labour movements, and informed activists.

Making the Law of the Sea

release date: Apr 14, 2011
Making the Law of the Sea
The law of the sea is an important area of international law which must be able to adapt to the changing needs of the international community. Making the Law of the Sea examines how various international organizations have contributed to the development of this law and what kinds of instruments and law-making techniques have been used. Each chapter considers a different international institution - including the International Maritime Organization and the United Nations - and analyses its functions and powers. Important questions are posed about the law-making process, including what actors are involved and what procedures are followed. Potential problems for the development of the law of the sea are considered and solutions are proposed. In particular, James Harrison explores and evaluates the current methods employed by international institutions to coordinate their law-making activities in order to overcome fragmentation of the law-making process.

The Life of John A. Rawlins

release date: Jan 17, 2016
The Life of John A. Rawlins
General James Harrison Wilson, said of his subject, "John A. Rawlins, all things considered, was the most remarkable man I met during the Civil War..." That is a remarkable statement from one who served under McClellan and Grant, and was a respected cavalry leader in his own right. Many consider that without Rawlins, Grant would not have climbed to the heights he achieved in the war. John Rawlins wrote, "You know, I believe more in the infallibility of numbers than in the infallibility of generals, no matter how great their reputation." Yet he was devoted to Ulysses S. Grant during the Civil War and to the end of Rawlins' short life. Grant felt he could not do without Rawlins and would not give him a front-line command. A contemporary said of Rawlins: "Lieutenant-Colonel Rawlins, Grant’s assistant adjutant general, is a very industrious, conscientious man, who never loses a moment, and never gives himself any indulgence except swearing and scolding." Rawlins even once lost his temper with Grant and used some pretty salty language, immediately begging the general's pardon. This interesting young man was a key background figure in the American Civil War. He was promoted general and later was Secretary of War under Grant. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
