What does it mean to win a moral victory? Ideals of just and decisive triumphs often colour the call to war, yet victory is an increasingly dubious proposition in modern conflict, where negotiated settlements and festering violence have replaced formal surrenders. In the Just War and strategic studies traditions, assumptions about victory also underpin decisions to go to war but become more problematic in discussions about its conduct and conclusion. So although winning is typically considered the very object of war, we lack a clear understanding of victory itself. Likewise, we lack reliable resources for discerning a just from an unjust victory, for balancing the duty to fight ethically with the obligation to win, and for assessing the significance of changing ways of war for moral judgment. Though not amenable to easy answers, these important questions are both perennial and especially urgent. This book brings together a group of leading scholars from various disciplines to tackle them. It covers both traditions of victory - charting the historically variable notion of victory and the dialogues and fissures this opens in the just war and strategic canons - along with contemporary challenges of victory- analysing how new security contexts put pressure on these fissures and working toward clearer ideas about victory today. The result is a wide-ranging and timely collection of essays that bridges the gap between ethical, strategic, and historical approaches to war and develops new ways of thinking about it as a practical and moral proposition.
The prophet is called to proclaim good news: to say to the people 'Here is your God!'. In Isaiah 40:10–11, the language evokes the image of the warrior who protects those too weak to defend themselves. See, the Lord God comes with might ...

This book teaches us about the science and benefits of fastingthe art of giving the belly a vacation. Fasting is defined in two words: Eat nothing. Fasting disconnects us from the natural and plugs us into the supernatural. It operates best as a three-man tag-team with loving, giving, and prayerfully seeking God. Fasting is humility. It is the draw near to God, the resist the devil and he will flee, the mounting up with wings like eagles, the run and not be weary, and the walk and not faint. Those who have mastered the art of denying their body and nourishing their spirit are the Bibles history makers. They are the poor in spirit, the meek, they that hunger and thirst after righteousness, and those who know their God and do exploits. Indeed, fasters are the Moseses, the Elijahs, the Esthers, the Daniels, the Jobs, the Johns, and the Jesuses. Fasting crucifies the flesh and destroys doubt and double-mindedness. Fasting is the science of putting new wine into new container. Fasting has its myths, methods, and motives. Fasting must be held as a priority, with purpose, power, and pleasure. Fasting has its how, when, where, and why. Fasting is beneficial to the entire person, Physical, mental, marital, medical, financial, emotional, and spiritual. You know you need to Fast when You are in a Fight You have lost Focus You need Fervency You need an increase in Faith You need Favor. Fasting will help in the curing of diseases, the casting out of demons, and the reversing of the aging process. This kind comes out by nothing but prayer and fasting.
Prayer in fasting will give this triple revelation of (1) God; (2) you; and (3) your destiny. Thank you, Lord! Here I am, Lord. Save me. In the year that King Uzziah died, Isaiah saw the Lord. Only dead people (fasting) see God.

This book grew out of the author's own experience with grief and loss from his fourteen-year-old daughter's death. He scoured books looking for comfort but found the Bible itself to be his greatest source of hope, comfort, wise counsel, and encouragement. After reviewing more than 200 books on grief and loss, he discovered that none investigated biblical passages oriented toward grief and loss themes. He set out to fill the huge, unmet need for a book that helps Christians embrace relevant Scriptures more fully and seriously in the midst of their mourning. The biblical selections deal with the hard questions, honest passions, and divine hope that only some who have walked down the path of sorrow could write about. Topics such as resurrection, the second coming, heaven, the resurrection body, doubt, anger, guilt, and dashed dreams are covered with great care to minister to the hearts of those who are grieving. Features and Benefits Foreword by best-selling author Randy Alcorn. Thoroughly focuses on Scriptures oriented to grief and loss more than any other book on the market. A prayer application at the end of each chapter focuses the readers' heart on spiritual growth through their time of grief and loss. Chapters are stand-alone and can be read in any order the reader chooses.

"In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed" (Mark 1:35). Jesus taught by his words and actions. He went by himself to pray when he was tired, when faced with upcoming trying events, or when he just wanted to be alone in the presence of his Lord. He gave us guidance about what to pray, how to pray, and why to pray, and was very familiar with the Hebrew Scriptures. Thus, if we want to become Jesus' disciple we should follow his model and invest time and emotional energy into prayer, Bible study, and reflection. <>Nourishment For The Spiritual Pilgrimage provides an aid for those who want to participate in the spiritual pilgrimage of becoming a lifelong disciple of Jesus Christ. It offers insight and support for those who daily want to turn their hearts, souls, and minds to God's will in their lives, as they strive to help in bringing about God's kingdom in this present time. There are countless other devotionals, but hopefully this can offer something that many of the others may not, a specific focus on the concept of discipleship.

This book discusses the first-century implications of applying Old Testament texts about the divine to Jesus. It summarizes recent views on the significance of this practice. It then collects pre-Christian and first-century Jewish parallels, and notices that most centre on the angel, wisdom, glory and word of the Lord, although application to non-divine figures also occurs. The evidence is that some Christians in the 50s worked with a redefinition of monotheism in which they included the Father and Jesus. Such a view explains the New Testament salvation-historical perspective in regard to the Old Testament belief on the theophany of God and the belief in God as the object of invocation.
