It is 1755, and the French, accompanied by their fierce Huron comrades, are wreaking havoc along the shores of the Ohio River Valley, torching and destroying everyone and everything along their murderous path. As Colton Gray, a major in the Virginia Militia and personal scout to Colonel George Washington bravely battles the French and their Indian allies, his new wife, Sashsa, pines for the man of her dreams. Sashsa, a former debutante in Montreal who was forced to run away from all she loved to avoid an arranged marriage, never expected to fall in love with a strong-willed soldier—let alone marry him. Haunted nightly by passionate dreams of his soul mate, Colton attempts to concentrate on the battles ahead without any idea that Sashsa has a plan of her own. Driven by her intuition that Colton is in trouble, Sashsa risks everything and heads into the battlefield with their young son to find him. When they are finally reunited, neither is prepared for the danger they will face or the choices they must make in order to protect their happiness—and their hearts. In this continuing romantic saga, a tenacious temptress and the man who loves her must stay the course in the midst of a brutal war and sacrifice everything to build a dynasty that will survive the ages of history.

Serfaty argues that U.S. interests in Europe have become so significant as to create an increasingly common Euro-Atlantic space from which disentanglement is no longer possible. The reality of this space does not mean an Americanization of Europe any more than it does the Europeanization of America. Serfaty points to the ways the United States is connected to Europe, the areas of friction, and the outlook for future common interests and joint approaches to challenges throughout the world. By pointing to the ways the United States is connected to Europe, by examining the areas of friction, and projecting future common interests and joint approaches to challenges throughout the world, Serfaty shows why staying the course is vital to European as well as American interests. A significant analysis for scholars, researchers, and policy makers concerned with contemporary American and European foreign policy and relations.

To "stay the course" means to persevere through difficulty. To "stick with" something means to not give it up. Gospel means "good news." We need some good news today and God has it. However, the "gospel" offered today is often different from the gospel revealed by God in His word. That has led to a lot of bad news. The "gospel" must be accurate and true to what God has revealed. We can't change the words of God and expect God to abide by conditions He never offered. That is exactly what is happening in the church today. The consequence of straying off course is spiritual dullness, division, and disillusionment. The church is experiencing a kind of Dark Ages. Because the church is in darkness, the world is too. But there is hope! Throughout history the true gospel has been a powerful reality. Stay the Course and Stick with the True Gospel, based on a study of Galatians, is a challenging call to discover and stick to the true gospel and sound biblical doctrine. Pastor Claude T. Stauffer is a graduate of Hofstra University (B.A. Sociology) and Asbury Theological Seminary (Master of Divinity). He has been in ministry since 1986 and presently serves as the senior pastor of Calvary Chapel of Hope, a church he has served from its beginning in 1993. He served bi-vocationally as a pastor and social worker for 16 years. His first book was Living Hope a hopeful study in the first epistle of Peter. His teachings have been aired on and he has been a guest host on local radio programs. Pastor Claude is happily married to his wife Dee of 29 years and has three children, Rachel, Daniel and Stephen. Other teachings by Pastor Claude can be found on his church website at www.calvarychapelofhope.org

Staying the Course is about a college that many describe as being “ the way colleges used to be: beautiful, well-maintained buildings and grounds; caring, capable faculty; administrators who manage frugally and compassionately; a bright, energetic president willing to dedicate his life to assuring a solid future for the institution; and students who study hard and work hard to serve those in need.” Still the college struggles to maintain what it has built and to increase its endowment, small by comparison to many private institutions, at the same time it continues to hold tuition low and provide funding to students who, even with Pell grants, need extra help to go to and stay in college. How the college is managing to build a sustainable financial base is described in chapters focusing on the kinds of students who attend, the faculty who teach, the administrators who oversee the multiple programs that support the students as well as design new courses and new ways of teaching, the trustees who guide the college, and the president who has stayed long enough to see many of his dreams for the college realized, to shape new dreams and to raise the funding that makes those dreams realities. The college still struggles in many ways but its struggles are far less than they would be without the lessons the institution has learned and is offering to other small, private colleges facing similar difficult circumstances. With the many stories about the sad state of higher education today, this book contradicts those stories with its description of how merging the values of the past with the information and strategies available today can enable a small college in a region of poverty and with a population of students with limited financial resources to rise above those threats and limitations to become a model for the future of such institutions.

Around 28,000 full-time and 87,000 part-time students who started first-degree courses in 2004-05 were no longer in higher education a year later. There has been little improvement in student retention since 2001-02, though participation in higher education has increased from around 40 per cent to nearly 43 per cent of 18-30 year olds. Universities have received around £800 million over the last five years to help improve retention and participation. In 2001-02 the Committee concluded (HC 588, ISBN 9780215005496) that there was a need for improvement in several areas: reducing the wide variation in retention rates; funding to support students from low-income backgrounds; tackling skills gaps; supporting disabled students; better information. The Committee's findings in this report include: there has been no reduction in the variation in retention rates; by widening participation in higher education, higher education institutions need to understand the needs of their changing student populations through the use of market research techniques; the Higher Education Funding Council for England should agree clear expectations for planned improvements in retention of students and make it part of any improvement plans; that only about half of part-time students obtain a qualification within six years and there is no specific framework to encourage improvement; that some students feel that academic and pastoral support is limited and does not meet their needs; information on why students withdraw from their courses is not reliable; substantial variations exist between universities in the proportions of students with disabilities that receive the Disabled Student's Allowances.
