`The overall purpose of human communication is - or should be - reconciliation. It should ultimately serve to lower or remove the walls of misunderstanding which unduly separate us human beings, one from another. . ' Although we have developed the technology to make communication more efficent and to bring people closer together, we have failed to use it to build a true global community. Dr M. Scott Peck believes that if we are to prevent civilization destroying itself, we must urgently rebuild on all levels, local, national and international and that is the first step to spiritual survival. In this radical and challenging book he describes how the communities work, how group action can be developed on the principles of tolerance and love, and how we can start to transform world society into a true community.

Peace is something that most profess to want, whether it be peace within self, families, communities or nations. Yet peace eludes us on all fronts. World peace is something that we march for, donate to, and pray for continually, but political parties teeter on the brink of irreconcilable chasms, religious factions tear each other apart, and the continual quest for resources keep tribes, religious groups, political organizations, and whole nations continually in conflict. Conflict resolution models abound and many books have been written about the subject. Many of these models, however, deal with external solutions to the problem without recognizing one very simple but vital fact: if the person is not at peace within him or herself, peace between individuals, communities, and even nations will never be possible. In other words, peace begins with the individual. The Peace in Pieces: Empowering the World Through the Edeh Mma-Di Peace Model seeks to legitimize Father Emmanuel Edeh’s peace theory as a viable and valid conflict-resolution model by illustrating its efficacy in real-time situations as well as how it could work in long-standing global conflicts. Mma-di is “the good that is,” and every human being on this planet is mma-di. Conflict comes, however, when mma-di becomes distorted. And given the overwhelming amount of conflict and hatred between people all over this planet, mma-di has become severely distorted. The mma-di peace model is a highly workable and proven conflict-resolution model, having been used at all strata of society in Nigeria, throughout Africa, and now in Europe and the U.S. with hundreds of thousands of conflicting parties. It has been found to be efficacious.

Popular calls to transform our current welfare system and supplant it with effective and inexpensive faith-based providers are gaining political support and engendering heated debate about the separation of church and state. Yet we lack concrete information from which to anticipate how such initiatives might actually work if adopted. Despite the assumption that congregations can help many needy people in our society, it remains to be seen how extensive they wish their involvement to be, or if they have the necessary tools to become significant providers in the social service arena. Moreover, how will such practices, which will move faith-based organizations towards professionalization, ultimately affect the spirit of volunteerism now prevalent in America's religious institutions? We lack sufficient knowledge about congregational life and its ability to play a key role in social service provision. The Invisible Caring Hand attempts to fill that void. Based on in-depth interviews with clergy and lay leaders in 251 congregations nationwide, it reveals the many ways in which congregations are already working, beneath the radar, to care for people in need. This ground-breaking volume will provide much-sought empirical data to social scientists, religious studies scholars, and those involved in the debates over the role of faith-based organizations in faith-based services, as well as to clergy and congregation members themselves.

Exiles: Living Missionally in a Post-Christian Culture presents a biblical, Christian worldview for the emergent church--people who are not at home in the traditional church or in the secular world. As exiles of both, they must create their own worldview that integrates their Christian beliefs with the contemporary world. Exiles seeks to integrate all aspects of life and decision-making and to develop the characteristics of a Christian life lived intentionally within emerging (postmodern) culture. It presents a plea for a dynamic, life-affirming, robust Christian faith that can be lived successfully in the post-Christian world of twenty-first century Western society. This book will present a Christian lifestyle that can be lived in non-religious categories and be attractive to not-yet Christians. Such a worldview takes ecology and politics seriously. It offers a positive response to the workplace, the arts, feminism, mystery and worship. Exiles seeks to develop a framework that will allow Christians to live boldly and courageously in a world that no longer values the culture of the church, but does greatly value many of the things the Bible speaks positively about. This book suggests that there us more to being a Christian than meets the eye. It explores the secret, unseen nooks and crannies in the life of a Christian and suggests that faith is about more than church attendance and belief in God. Written in a conversational, easy-to-read style, Exiles is aimed at church leaders, pastors and laypersons and seeks to address complex issues in a simple manner. It includes helpful photographs and diagrams.
