This book is the work of 14 separate individuals who came together out of a mutual passion: that of teaching journalism. Although all the authors are college or university professors, almost all of them began their journalism journey in a high school classroom - most in a newspaper class, many in a yearbook class. Unfortunately, not all of them see the same enthusiasm for the subject that they remember. What they see in college classrooms are students who think they can jump right into being a sports analyst for a network or a fashion editor for a major publication, all as first jobs out of college. Many who come to higher education without a high school journalism experience come without the necessary critical thinking, creative thinking, collaborative and communication skills. That is the reasoning behind this book: not just to discover the state of high school journalism, but a way to help teachers improve their own skills. This work is for teachers who either are or will be teaching high school journalism and people who are interested in preserving the programs. The first part of this work is a look at the state of high school journalism in America in 2014. This includes a nationwide survey with the results in Section One. For teachers who want to argue for support in terms of newer technology, working with local professionals, additional certification or other issues, this section provides that information. Section Two was developed because it became apparent early on that many high school journalism teachers had no idea about the federal court laws which govern what they teach. The three chapters take teachers from the earliest history and laws through the Hazelwood decision and slightly beyond - cases that have significant impact on governance of scholastic news media. Section Three turns back to the classroom itself and discusses the basics of high school journalism, how outstanding programs have survived, teaching the 4Cs, how teachers can best use available workshops and incorporate more professional assistance in their classroom. The final section gives all the conclusions about what can be done to improve high school journalism, plus an annotated bibliography for anyone who wants to conduct further research in this subject, and brief biographical sketches of the authors and editors of this work. Also added is the original survey sent to 600 high school teachers. It is the sincere hope of the SPJ Education Committee that this work is of assistance to scholastic programs throughout the country

In December 2011, the Australian world traveller, ex-member of the Australian Regular Army and university teacher Warren Richard Rodwell was kidnapped for ransom in the Mindanao region of the southern Philippines by a group of criminals claiming to be members of the notorious terrorist/insurgent organisation the Abu Sayyaf Group. This particular group had loose ties with other insurgent groups that were indulging in similar criminal activity in the greater Sulu Archipelago area including the Zamboanga peninsular – where Rodwell was abducted. Rodwell was kept prisoner for a total of 472 days making him the longest held Australian captive outside of official Prisoners-of-War (POWs). During his 472 days of captivity he was moved between various jungle hideouts in the Islands of Basilan and Tawi-Tawi, eventually being freed by his captors only a few kilometres from where he was originally kidnapped. His tale of survival is made all the more remarkable considering he endured an untreated gunshot wound and an almost starvation diet – losing over one third of his body weight – and was forced to walk and climb in oppressive heat and under constant threat of being beheaded. When he was finally released in March 2013 he was emaciated, physically and emotionally at the lowest point in his life, and totally bewildered. During his period of obligatory debriefing by both Philippine and Australian authorities, an amazing tale of survival unfolded. Rodwell’s determination to overcome all obstacles in his path to eventual freedom is the quintessence of all that is dear in life – life itself.

The Captive's Position

Why do narratives of Indian captivity emerge in New England between 1682 and 1707 and why are these texts, so centrally concerned with women's experience, supported and even written by a powerful group of Puritan ministers? In The Captive's Position, Teresa Toulouse argues for a new interpretation of the captivity narrative—one that takes into account the profound shifts in political and social authority and legitimacy that occurred in New England at the end of the seventeenth century. While North American narratives of Indian captivity had been written before this period by French priests and other European adventurers, those stories had focused largely on Catholic conversions and martyrdoms or male strategies for survival among the Indians. In contrast, the New England texts represented a colonial Protestant woman who was separated brutally from her family but who demonstrated qualities of religious acceptance, humility, and obedience until she was eventually returned to her own community. Toulouse explores how the female captive's position came to resonate so powerfully for traditional male elites in the second and third generation of the Massachusetts colony. Threatened by ongoing wars with Indians and French as well as by a range of royal English interventions in New England political and cultural life, figures such as Increase Mather, Cotton Mather, and John Williams perceived themselves to be equally challenged by religious and social conflicts within New England. By responding to and employing popular representations of female captivity, they were enabled to express their ambivalence toward the world of their fathers and toward imperial expansion and thereby to negotiate their own complicated sense of personal and cultural identity. Examining the captivity narratives of Mary Rowlandson, Hannah Dustan, Hannah Swarton, and John Williams (who comes to stand in for the female captive), Toulouse asserts the need to read these gendered texts as cultural products that variably engage, shape, and confound colonial attitudes toward both Europe and the local scene in Massachusetts. In doing so, The Captive's Position offers a new story of the rise and breakdown of orthodox Puritan captivities and a meditation on the relationship between dreams of authority and historical change.

I believe this book declares what is happening in the spirit realm to activate the "spiritual antenna" of those in and outside the churches, and how God will gather His people together and pour out His Holy Spirit upon them to do His Will, in His Way. God wants an 'army' of ordinary people to play their part in His Final Battle for Souls. Security in God is vital, as is Faith to keep following Jesus -without being deceived and growing cold towards God. God wants to release His people into a SECOND ACT OF JESUS' RESURRECTION POWER to do His amazing works of Grace and Mercy. He wants us to be aware of the spiritual signs, which will continue to increase prior to Jesus' return, so that we are ready for when He does RETURN for HIS SPOTLESS BRIDE HIS CHURCH! Therefore, God wants us to STOP and LISTEN to Him! Personally, God has spoken to me since 1991 regarding "The Final Battle" and has gradually revealed more and more of His plans, but I firmly believe there is very much more revelation to be received by God's people and that this is only just the very beginning. The purpose of these revelations is to give vision and to give spiritual insight into the days and times in which we now live. It is to inform all people about the urgency of these times by alerting their spiritual reception to what God is planning to do in the coming days. In order for people to understand these times they will need to allow God to "give birth" in their hearts to HOPE, FAITH, LOVE, COMPASSION and VISION with an EXPECTANCY that God will do ALL that He says He will do. My prayer is that these revelations will encourage and give assurance of GOD's LOVE for ALL PEOPLE and, also, give warnings and opportunities to others to receive JESUS, GOD'S ONLY SON, as their SAVIOUR and LORD. Therefore, this book is a LETTER from GOD'S HEART addressed to those who: KNOW JESUS, who have been born of His Holy Spirit and are seeking to put His will first in their lives. HAVE KNOWN JESUS, but have lost contact with Him through disappointments, disillusionments, pain, hurt, rejection etc. HAVE KNOWN JESUS but who have fallen prey to lethargy and comfort, having been deceived that following Jesus means only to follow Him and live in the blessings (the good times), and not following Him in the "crucifixion" times (faith-building times), for during these times character growth and maturity can take place. HAVE KNOWN JESUS, but have fallen asleep and have become "spiritually dead" no longer able to hear the voice of their Shepherd calling them to come to Him. LEGALLY PRAISE HIM with their "head" and not with their "heart", as they are missing the point, missing out on their personal relationship with Jesus and missing out on fulfilling their potential and purpose in Him. HAVE HEARD ABOUT JESUS and believe in Him, and that He is the only Son of God, but do not see the need or urgency or relevance of receiving Him as Lord and Saviour of their lives. HAVE NEVER HEARD ABOUT JESUS, and about the Good News that was given to all mankind when Jesus died for ALL of our sins and arose from the dead on the third day, thereby being in a position of authority to remove ALL sin and opposition from the lives of all who will turn to Him in true repentance and with sincere regret for their wrong doings, however big or small, so that they can receive His Forgiveness and His Healing and Saving Love into their hearts and lives. MAY BE either complacent, financially secure, poor and needy, sick and dying, abused physically, mentally, emotionally, sexually, or those who may be the perpetrators of this abuse, those who are desperate and despairing, longing and groaning for moral and upright attitudes within our Nations, for which problems and difficulties JESUS IS the only answer. MAY BE plotting evil against those who follow Jesus, to turn from their course while there are still opportunities available to them. To su

What does it mean to preach the gospel today? How do we shape vibrant congregations? How do we preachers not merely survive, but thrive? For nearly a quarter century, Chris Neufeld-Erdman has preached the gospel--sustaining congregational life and emboldening Christian witness in the midst of this turbulence. He's also taught seminarians and mentored working pastors. His theology and practice of preaching is hammered out on the anvil of real life. It's tested. True. Useful. In this book, a veteran pastor meditates on everything from exegesis and sermon preparation to the way preachers might preach after tsunamis, hurricanes, and earthquakes. He reflects on what it means, for example, to host the text in the midst of what feels like a terminal state of war and violence, both abroad and at home, as well as the task of preaching in the midst of the massive anxiety produced by economic uncertainty and political gridlock. Here's a book that will inspire and guide you as a wise, empowered preacher--an ordinary agent of the extraordinary gospel.

The history of the Reformation is a demonstration of one of the greatest revolutions that has ever been accomplished in human affairs by the sovereignty of God. In many respects the history of the Reformation is distinct from that of Protestantism. In the former everything bears the mark of a regeneration of the human race, of a religious and social change emanating from God himself through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Reformation was not a single moment in time where the stalwart reformer Martin Luther stood against the Roman Catholic Church at the Diet of Worms. Instead, in looking at the history of the Reformation, we find it to be a much more complex organism and the direct result of God's vast work of providence across continents and countries. Many times such a history is complex and difficult to wade through for the student. In this work, the Reformation is made easy.
