Half the Perfect World is a social and literary account of the expatriate artist community on the Greek island of Hydra from 1955 to 1964, and is richly illustrated by LIFE Magazine eye-witness photographer James Burke. Fostered by celebrated Australian literary couple Charmian Clift and George Johnston, this fabled 'colony' came to include renowned singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen and numerous other writers and artists, including many whose youthful ambitions were never realised. What brought this group to Hydra? What life did they live there? And what does their story reveal about the post-war world? Looking at the Hydra expatriates through their writing, letters, diaries and photographs, Genoni and Dalziell identify a deep restlessness within a rapidly changing time of emerging social movements and counter-cultures, travel, tourism and leisure, shifting geo-political realities, incipient pop-cultures, new technologies of communication and entertainment, and altered understandings of what it meant to live as an expatriate artist.

Women comprise at least half the world, and usually more than half the church, but so often Christian teaching to women either fails to move beyond a discussion of roles or assumes a particular economic situation or stage of life. This all but shuts women out from contributing to God’s kingdom as they were designed to do. Furthermore, the plight of women in the Majority World demands a Christian response, a holistic embrace of all that God calls women and men to be in his world. The loudest voices speaking into women’s lives in the twenty-first century thus far come from either fundamentalist Islam or radical feminism. And neither can be allowed to carry the day. The Bible contains the highest possible view of women and invests women’s lives with cosmic significance regardless of their age, stage of life, social status, or culture. Carolyn Custis James unpacks three transformative themes the Bible presents to women that raise the bar for women and calls them to join their brothers in advancing God’s gracious kingdom on earth. These new images of what can be in Christ free women to embrace the life God gives them, no matter what happens. Carolyn encourages readers with a positive, kingdom approach to the changes, challenges, and opportunities facing women throughout the world today.

This is why he said, Let the weak say they are strong. Keep saying it and you will become it and you will have no choice but to release it because power and strength never stays within. A ruler and a scale are two different forms of measurement. The scale is used to create balance with the thoughts and with the ruler you measure everything else. You can measure the life and not the thoughts because the thoughts have no ending. But the mans life, you can measure it, because there is an end to his life. There is no position that you are stuck in until you die. As a matter of fact, you get out of life just what you put in. We are all Gods children. Talking about your fear with other people is the best thing you can do. It does not matter how ridiculous the fears in your mind sound. Ponder this: I think greed discovered man, rather than man discovered greed. There are many reasons why I think most men feel that women should not run the world. Firstly, their own insecurity, secondly, their thirst for greed, thirdly selfishness, but most of all is that fear inside that women do the same to them that they did to females in the past. Being a slave to your own fear is one of the most deadly things in life, it prevents you from achieving your dreams, it is sometimes worse than alcohol or drugs.
