What if you could view the development of human spirituality through the eternal eyes of the universe? Would you like to uncover insight that reveals a deeper understanding of where we have been, and what we have become? What about an intriguing glance into the workings of the universe, and a comforting guide for the future? " Where is home? Home is where you finally know who you are and you come to be at peace with all that you are and all you have ever been." Spirituality is about the heart, not where we live, or how we grew up. We can all find a connection that feeds the soul, gives us insight and comfort, and ultimately brings us home. Regardless of how we get there, spirituality is how we find out about ourselves. It is truly the inner spirit, the core of our soul that we ultimately yearn to know. "There is a conscious effort and determination by growing numbers of people to move dark energy away from Earth and bring in the energies of spiritual light. We are here to support you, but it is you on the Earth who will determine the future." The search for spirituality is at the core of life for all humans. It determines the direction of our life, depending on how we respond to that inner call. To listen and be open to spirit takes us in one direction. To shut off that voice and ignore our need for spirituality, or to distort its purpose, takes us on a very different path.

The Design, Culture and Play of Modern European Board Games

While board games can appear almost primitive in the digital age, eurogames—also known as German-style board games—have increased in popularity nearly concurrently with the rise of video games. Eurogames have simple rules and short playing times and emphasize strategy over luck and conflict. This book examines the form of eurogames, the hobbyist culture that surrounds them, and the way that hobbyists experience the play of such games. It chronicles the evolution of tabletop hobby gaming and explores why hobbyists play them, how players balance competitive play with the demands of an intimate social gathering, and to what extent the social context of the game encounter shapes the playing experience. Combining history, cultural studies, leisure studies, ludology, and play theory, this innovative work highlights a popular alternative trend in the gaming community.

Guiding Light

Contributions of Alan R. Tippett Toward the Development and Dissemination of Twentieth-Century Missiology

Rev. Dr. Alan Tippett was arguably one of the leading missiologists of the twentieth century. Through his prolific pen, poignant observations, and powerful insights he significantly influenced mission research and activity in the period of the 1960s to 1980s. This was particularly facilitated through his research, writing, and teaching at the Institute of Church Growth, Fuller Theological Seminary School of World Mission, and his inaugural editorship of the American Society of Missiology’s journal, Missiology: An International Review. Yet for those who did not know Tippett’s material well, the very specific nature of his research and writing limited the influence of his insights. For example, without already knowing the pertinent content, why would a missionary to Thailand think of reading Tippett’s Solomon Islands Christianity? However, according to Doug Priest, editor of a number of Tippett’s posthumous publications, this volume has “done what even Tippett himself did not do, and that is to capture the key features of his missiology in one volume.” So Guiding Light functions as an in-depth overview of “The Essential Alan Tippett.” I can attest that the nature of Tippett’s material continued to inform and inspire me throughout the eleven years of the research and writing of this study.
