On Thanksgiving Eve, November 24, 1971, a man hijacked a Boeing 727 enroute from Portland to Seattle. After receiving $200,000 and parachutes, he gave specific instructions to the flight crew and parachuted from the airliner. Eventually, a few twenty-dollar bills were discovered near Portland. No other evidence has been recovered...

Scientific Challenges to Evolutionary Theory: How These Challenges Affect Religion addresses all aspects of the giant battle between two major belief systems…those that believe in a ‘naturalistic worldview’ and evolution, and those that believe in a miracle-performing God and the Creation of all things. On a trip to Mount St. Helens, some look at the catastrophic eruption of May 18, 1981 as a significant corroboration of the Creation event. Others, deniers of the possibilities of miracles, hold to the view that God’s creation cannot be taken seriously by the scientific community. At the Mount St. Helens book store, I asked about books for sale that gave a Christian view of the catastrophic eruption. The reply was, “I’m sorry, sir, but we only carry books by scientists.” It was time for the author, Jay Schabacker, to do a little scientific sleuthing. Join Jay Schabacker as you learn of the hundreds, even thousands, of Ph.D. scientists who repudiate the theory of evolution, but hold rather to the truth of the theory of Creation. Significant general information, likely new to most readers gives corroborative evidence from many sources, including: • From all over the ancient world, hundreds of accounts of a global flood • Well documented accounts of the Ark of Noah, indeed, located at the top of Mount Ararat • Ancient ‘Near East’ finds, inscribed on rock, told of the actual details covered in the Holy Bible Numerous scientific papers refute the naturalistic dogma forced on us the government, public schools, universities and media. You’ll find arguments that assert: • The earth’s geological features appear to have been fashioned by rapid catastrophic processes that affected the earth on a global scale. • Life on earth was suddenly created, not over billions of years. • The use of radiometric dating method is often grossly in error. • The fossil record shows that all present living kinds of animals and plants have remained fixed since creation. • Mutations and natural selection are insufficient to have brought about any emergence of living kinds from a simple primordial organism. • The universe has “obvious manifestations of an ordered, structural plan and design.” The universe and the solar system were suddenly created. If evolution is wrong why are our children being only taught it in our public schools? Numerous polls favored biology teachers teaching Darwin’s Theory of evolution, but also the scientific evidence against it. The final section of the book gets further into the “Action Plan” where church pastors and members, scientist groups, etc., could make an important difference if: • We all read about the subject and started the conversation; • We gave our views to the school boards and legislators who are the decision makers; • We initiate needed petitions in support needed legislation; and • We urge church pastors to create their own church schools and concerned families to start home schooling for their children.
What happened at Mount St. Helens is a powerful challenge to this belief. The evidence here shows that one can logically accept that the Flood of Noah's day—and its after-effects—could have accomplished extraordinary geological work, ...

The foundation of patient-centered care is the patient-professional relationship. By exploring both the disease and patients' unique experience of illness, healthcare professionals take into consideration their individual needs as well as their emotional and physical concerns. Using narratives to describe experiences of patients and professionals, this book reveals the four interactive components of the patient-centered clinical method: exploring health, disease and illness; understanding the whole person; finding common ground; and enhancing the patient-doctor relationship. The concluding chapters illustrate ways in which all four components interact with and complement each other and can be used in unison to the immeasurable benefit of both patient and professional. The stimulating narratives are all based on recent developments in the theoretical model of patient-centred clinical care. This wide-ranging, thought-provoking text is highly relevant to a wide range of healthcare professionals as well as medical educators and healthcare students. For physicians, narratives provide insight and illumination of what it truly means to be patient-centered. They also help clinicians to examine, in a reflective manner, what it means to be a healer.

They were mostly inexperienced campers, "raising their hands" to take a big risk, exchanging their comfortable lives for a difficult week of mountaineering. Over 135 college students and alumni tell stories and share memories of teamwork and testing, disappointment and triumph. They pushed their limits, believed in themselves, and took time for personal reflection. Sometimes pain -- sore muscles, altitude sickness, and frozen toes -- seemed insurmountable. Yet in memory, overcoming physical challenges remains a source of great satisfaction. Persisting when they most want to quit teaches young people to think big. Exhaustion and discomfort can be dispelled by camaraderie and humility. In their futures, finding solutions to tough problems will require truly exceptional leadership. Whether they are called to lead, asked to lead, or forced to lead, all who dared those summits will be better prepared to meet any challenge they will face.
Experiencing the wilderness makes it almost impossible to draw parallels from physical barriers in the backcountry to daily challenges faced in our routine lives. While summiting the South Sister and Mount St. Helens, I constantly found ...

Riveting experiences from both the US Army and as a missionary all play out upon an international stage in the thirty countries where Carl has lived or visited. Carl‘s life is an open book about big decisions. Decisions that led to blessing and disaster. Yet whether he was in Iran or along the communist border of East Germany, one thing never failed: the merciful, loving, kind, and all-powerful presence of God was always there for Carl. Carl will convince you that even though life is a challenge to live, God is way bigger and you can do all things he calls you to do through Christ who strengthens you.
It is important to note that the title that the Lord gave me for this book implies my life was a challenge for me to live. As I write, it is clear to me that, ... As covered in more detail in other chapters, Helen's and my years in the ...

This book challenges universities to rethink their missions and to re-structure courses, research programs, and campus life in terms of sustainability. The author offers valuable theoretical and practical resources for students, teachers, researchers, and administrators who seek sustainability in higher education. Sustainability is explored as an outcome and a process of learning, and also as a catalyst for educational change and institutional innovation.
Hence, after Helen's initial scepticism that postmodern ideas had little relevance for redefining the role of conservation, the above extracts reveal her readiness to appeal to postmodern insights in challenging the tendency for ...
