An inspiring and at times irreverent book, The Listening Project makes you laugh, cry, and think about the many opportunities we have to hear God in our daily lives, especially when life gives us hurdles too big to jump on our own. As the author shares her experiences and lessons learned, readers are encouraged to explore their own unique spiritual approach to life, the ways they listen to God, and the inherent human challenges and rewards of hearing and following Divine guidance.
Come and discover God’s character and the hidden gems of Deuteronomy. God gave Moses a promise that would endure for a thousand generations – it’s applicable for all of us who weren’t there for his last sermon. It’s a message of God’s love and His faithfulness. It is written to transform us, to strengthen us and to give us hope. It’s a message of relevance that will draw others to our God.
As Hidden Gems helps you uncover these forgotten gems, it will bring a whole new perspective on the many promises given us in scripture. Your view of God will expand and you’ll see sin from a new perspective. You’ll want God to show you the sins in your life.
This seemingly small shift in your view of God will enable the Holy Spirit to create in your heart a renewed spirit of discovery, compassion and service. You’ll want to discover more of God’s promises, to share your own joyful journey of God’s faithfulness, and to experience a new excitement for service.
Williams has here collected the work of the chief partisans with opposed viewpoints on the theory of selection at the group level to state their arguments and rebuttals. A minority of modern biologists offer evidence to show that groups of living things are organized to assure their collective survival; they are not merely collections of individuals designed for their own survival and reproduction. In opposition, defenders of the traditional point of view charge that mechanisms of group survival are based on illusion and misinterpretation.
Because of the wide range of opinion expressed in Group Selection, the reader is exposed to all sides of the dispute and encouraged to form his or her own views. In addition, as a source book on current evolutionary issues or for research or reference material, Group Selection remains a valuable addition to every personal and institutional library in the biological sciences.
George C. Williams is professor emeritus of biological sciences at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He is the author of Adaptation and Natural Selection and has contributed numerous articles to scholarly publications on the behavior and ecology of fish and has published several technical articles on evolutionary mechanisms, especially in relation to social behavior, strategies of reproduction, and adaptive features of life cycles. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and was awarded its Elliot Medal.
This book is about the practicalities of introducing a carbon tax, set against the broader fiscal context. It consists of thirteen chapters, written by leading experts, covering the full range of issues policymakers would need to understand, such as the revenue potential of a carbon tax, how the tax can be administered, the advantages of carbon taxes over other mitigation instruments and the environmental and macroeconomic impacts of the tax.
A carbon tax can work in the United States. This volume shows how, by laying out sound design principles, opportunities for broader policy reforms, and feasible solutions to specific implementation challenges.
