For decades, or maybe centuries, the Church has ignored some of the most crucial truths found in God's word. The author has been shown these truths over a long period of time, resulting in an incredible transformation of his life. For any person who is serious about his/her walk with Christ, these truths are absolutely essential in order to grow in grace and the knowledge of the truth. The author's lament is, 'If only I had been taught these truths decades ago, I may well have enjoyed life to the fullest, and experienced the joy of His salvation many years ago.' Sadly he is close to his life's expected time span and will not have the time to enjoy such a life for very long. But his desire is that many people who believe they are Christians will read this book with hungry, open hearts, ready to hear from God, accept the truth, be set free, and experience the joy of His salvation far earlier in life than the author. The United States of America is spiritually sick, in desperate need of healing. The author offers some very wise advice to the Church in America which would change the direction of this nation if accepted and applied to the lives of those who profess to know Christ. The teaching found in this book is not the author's opinion, but rather the exposition of scripture in a clear and concise manner. He believes that his doctrinal stance, ideology or opinions are worth nothing, so he simply and clearly brings to light the teaching of God's word, much of which has been ignored for far too long.

Transgression in Games and Play

Contributors from a range of disciplines explore boundary-crossing in videogames, examining both transgressive game content and transgressive player actions. Video gameplay can include transgressive play practices in which players act in ways meant to annoy, punish, or harass other players. Videogames themselves can include transgressive or upsetting content, including excessive violence. Such boundary-crossing in videogames belies the general idea that play and games are fun and non-serious, with little consequence outside the world of the game. In this book, contributors from a range of disciplines explore transgression in video games, examining both game content and player actions. The contributors consider the concept of transgression in games and play, drawing on discourses in sociology, philosophy, media studies, and game studies; offer case studies of transgressive play, considering, among other things, how gameplay practices can be at once playful and violations of social etiquette; investigate players' emotional responses to game content and play practices; examine the aesthetics of transgression, focusing on the ways that game design can be used for transgressive purposes; and discuss transgressive gameplay in a societal context. By emphasizing actual player experience, the book offers a contextual understanding of content and practices usually framed as simply problematic. Contributors Fraser Allison, Kristian A.

If Not Us, Who?

William Rusher, National Review, and the Conservative Movement

If Not Us, Who? is both the story of an architect of the modern conservative movement and a colorful journey through a half century of high-level politics. Best known as the longtime publisher of National Review, William Rusher (1923–2011) was more than just a crucial figure in the history of the Right’s leading magazine. He was a political intellectual, tactician, and strategist who helped shape the historic rise of conservatism. To write If Not Us, Who?, David B. Frisk pored over Rusher’s voluminous papers at the Library of Congress and interviewed dozens of insiders, including National Review founder William F. Buckley Jr., in addition to Rusher himself. The result is a gripping biography that shines new light on Rusher’s significance as an observer and an activiast while bringing to life more than a generation’s worth of political hopes, fears, and controversies. Frisk vividly captures the joys and struggles at National Review, including Rusher’s complex relationship with the legendary Buckley. Here we see the powerful blend of wit, erudition, dedication, shrewdness, and earnestness that made Rusher an influential figure at NR and an indispensable link between conservatism’s leading theorists and its political practitioners. “If not us, who? If not now, when?”—a maxim often attributed to Ronald Reagan—could have been Rusher’s motto. In everything he did—publishing National Review, recruiting and advising political candidates, organizing cadres of young conservatives, taking on liberal advocates in a popular television debate program, writing a syndicated column—his objective was to build a movement. His tireless efforts proved essential to conservatism’s ascendancy, from the pivotal Goldwater campaign through the Reagan era. Largely unexamined until now, Rusher’s career opens a new window onto the history of the conservative movement. This comprehensive biography reintroduces readers to a remarkable man of thought and action.
