The righteousness of God is given to the born-again believers who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Believers are the righteousness of God because they are "in Christ." Being "in Christ," believers can live a righteous life in our changing world. Believers are justified by God's grace through the redemption that is "in Christ." They renew their minds in the Word of God, which transforms their minds so they can live a righteous life. Believers who are "in Christ" will not conform to this world's patterns and behaviors. They are "the just," and "the just" lives by faith in Jesus Christ alone. Believers have righteous attitudes because of their faith "in Jesus Christ" and in the Word of God, which helps them live a pleasing life before God in order to have peace with God and themselves. Believers' attitudes determine their thoughts, their thoughts determine what they say, and their words determine their results or their reality. Therefore, believers can live righteous in our changing world because they are led by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, which is their final authority, and they have the mind of Christ.

Gender Inequality in Our Changing World: A Comparative Approach focuses on the contemporary United States but places it in historical and global context. Written for sociology of gender courses, this textbook identifies conditions that encourage greater or lesser gender inequality, explains how gender and gender inequality change over time, and explores how gender intersects with other hierarchies, especially those related to race, social class, and sexual identity. The authors integrate historical and international materials as they help students think both theoretically and empirically about the causes and consequences of gender inequality, both in their own lives and in the lives of others worldwide.

No matter which way we turn today, trends like pollution, climate change, and the 4th Industrial Revolution are impacting the ecosystems that you and I live in. These trends are influencing all of us and if you are not concerned about the impact they will have on the current and future wellbeing of you and your loved ones, you should be. This concern is called ecological anxiety, and it is up to you to decide how it should be managed and what actions you will take to adapt and prepare. As you can imagine, the topic of ecological anxiety is vast. This book is an introduction that outlines the major trends to be concerned about, as well as offering up practical ways for you to protect your financial, physical, and mental wellbeing. Ecological anxiety is not just limited to adults either. Our youth can also experience it, perhaps to an even greater extent than adults. This book contains discussions focused on this, why it can be different from adult ecological anxiety, and ways we can mentor them through this scary period of their lives. The seemingly perfect storm of globe-altering trends is already impacting us. Now is the time to take control (and it’s easier than you might think).

Fifty years and one billion dollars in gross box-office receipts after the initial release of The Godfather, Francis Ford Coppola's masterful trilogy continues to fascinate viewers old and new. The Godfather Effect skillfully analyzes the reasons behind this ongoing global phenomenon. Packed with behind-the-scenes anecdotes from all three Godfather films, Tom Santopietro explores the historical origins of the Mob and why they thrived in America, how Italian-Americans are portrayed in the media, and how a saga of murderous gangsters captivated audiences around the globe. Laced with stories about Brando, Pacino, and Sinatra, and interwoven with a funny and poignant memoir about the author's own experiences growing up with an Italian name in an Anglo world of private schools and country clubs, The Godfather Effect is a book for film lovers, observers of American life, and Italians of all nationalities.

In The Missional Leader, consultants Alan J. Roxburgh and Fred Romanuk address two questions: "How do we do missional?" and "What does missional leadership look like?" Drawing on their many years of experience, the authors show readers how to bring God's word into the community outside the church's walls. They focus on how to lead missionally on the ground, in the local setting, even amid leaders' experience of massive change within the church and in the wider world. The challenge for many church leaders is that they are not equipped to lead a church in shifting from a consumer model of church to one that is missional. They were trained in a Christendom mindset--to meet the needs of the church's members. This book assists leaders in shifting from dominant models of leadership rooted in strategic planning--with mission and vision statements, desired outcomes, measurements along the way, and determined goals. It provides a praxis for beginning where people are, rather than where the leader wants them to go. Roxburgh and Romanuk give frank recognition to the fact that the shift from a consumer model to a missional mindset will almost certainly be stormy, disruptive, and disorienting. This is not a book of quick fixes and slick slogans, but one that sets out a comprehensive and in-depth treatment for a different way of leading. The Missional Leader is a critical commentary that needs to be read in the light of today's realities.
