This edited volume presents an overview of research and policy issues pertaining to children from birth to 10 who are first- and second-generation immigrants to the U.S., as well as native-born children of immigrants. The contributors offer interdisciplinary perspectives on recent developments and research findings on children of immigrants. By accessibly presenting research findings and policy considerations in the field, this collection lays the foundation for changes in child and youth policies associated with the shifting ethnic, cultural, and linguistic profile of the U.S. population.
If God So Loved the World, Why Can't We?
Author: Leonard Sweet
In his first book conceived and acquired specifically to be delivered electronically, Leonard Sweet contends that the church is blind to the changes that are dragging us into the future. Therefore, it is losing its influence as an agent of change and grace in the world. "There are now some companies who absolutely want to change the world more than the church," writes Sweet. He sees the church at a crossroads. It will either see the future as a new dawn and therefore embrace it as opportunity. Or, it will see the future as dusk and therefore hide from the darkness of the world. Sweet believes that God will be in the future, with or without us, and that an "Acts 27" movement is afoot. This book serves as a "naturalization manual" to help Christians achieve full citizenship in the new, postmodern world. It will teach them how to go from being immigrants to natives. From foreigners in a strange land to people of God, confident and at home in a rapidly changing world.

"Since the world began, people have been looking for love in the wrong place. As a result, theyve found themselves in situations of rape, love triangles, living together, getting caught in the act, and various promiscuous lifestyles, with passions out of control. And there seems to be no way out. This book contains stories about men and women in the Bible who struggled with the same love situations that are prevalent in our society today. The author shows what the Scriptures have to say about how to handle these problems. She also presents solutions, ending with the ultimate love story, which pictures Jesus as our Kinsman Redeemer. No matter what your situation, the loving kindness of God is available to you. And His love never fails. The right place to look for love is God"
