And you were told it was only a theory? Learn what was really taught.The Adam-God doctrine, first clearly declared by Brigham Young, met with stiff opposition by both Saint and sinner. Eventually in the 1860s, he significantly retreated from his profounder teachings, to teaching the basic understandings of the Gospel. But then in the 1870s President Young again publicly revived the higher concepts of his revelation, as he declared it was (see chapter 116:5 for example). This book has 508 pages, with 182 chapters, each chapter a reference from a source of reliable texts. Each chapter has been further divided into verses, in order that the student or reader may cross reference his studies. The latter part of the book is divided into three approaches or theories that are supported today, for consideration. Also included in the book: a map of the universe gleaned from the Book of Abraham.This book strives to be objective by citing excerpts from Church leaders regardless of their positions on this subject. The Adam-God doctrine is not simply cited here alone, but it is seated into other related teachings of the day: decomposition, polygamy, plurality of gods, and so on. In this manner, it is hoped that the reader will appreciate the Adam-God teachings as part of a greater vision of eternity by an extraordinary man of God, and not an aberrant misgiving of a prophet gone awry. The Adam-God Revelation is the first of at least two volumes in a set called the Journal of References. (The second volume planned will be on a related topic regarding Eternity.)
For Career Counseling courses in Counseling or Psychology departments, or Career Development courses. Organized around the competencies required by the National Career Development Association, this concise, practical text examines the process of career counseling and techniques for helping clients make appropriate occupational decisions. The authors take a holistic, lifespan approach to their subject, defining career counseling as the process by which a counselor works collaboratively with clients/students to help them clarify, specify, implement, and adjust to work-related situations, challenges, and changes. Such targeted coverage makes this volume ideal as a stand-alone text for a course that does not address underlying career counseling theories, or a valuable supplement to a comprehensive text.

This book is the first edited volume devoted exclusively to career counseling with African Americans. African Americans are now at parity with the graduation rates of White Americans, yet disparities in employment continue to abound. At the same time the job market is changing and in need of more highly qualified workers, society must begin to understand the career and employment needs of Black Americans if it is to more effectively utilize this available market resource. Recent data indicates that stronger economies have a competitive edge if they have a more diverse workforce. More effective career counseling must be provided for African Americans so that they can become more thoroughly integrated in the world of work, thus creating stronger economies for society and more satisfying and challenging lives for this segment of the United States. Career Counselors need to be trained to effectively interact with African Americans. This volume begins to shed more light on just how to do that. This book presents nine significant topics focusing on career counseling for African Americans: *basic issues and concepts; *career assessment; *career counseling with African Americans; *career counseling with dual career African American couples; *career transition issues; *affirmative career counseling with African American women; *career counseling in non-traditional career fields; *the impact of the glass ceiling on the career development of African Americans; and *future directions in career counseling theory, research, and practice with African Americans.
