“The Little Book” is based on a Bible verse in Revelation that tells of an angel commanding the prophet John to eat a little book that would be sweet in his mouth and bitter in his belly. The major issues of the liberal agenda are of the same nature. They include atheism, feminism, homosexuality, animal rights, environmentalism, education, government, and, worst of all, abortion. These issues are presented in a feel-good way, sweet as honey, but always turn to bitterness and are quickly forgotten by the liberal presenters and media cheerleaders. For many years the expansion of liberalism has been a mystery, but a study of the scriptures has revealed how that thinking has overridden common sense. It is the author’s conviction that the chief perpetrator of these issues is Satan who has blinded the minds of many of our citizens, enabling the ungodly liberal activists to force their evil positions on our whole country. It’s a perfect way for the devil, in his war against GOD, to increase the alienation of man from GOD. The BIBLE shines a spiritual light on their deeds, exposing them for what they are. Through GOD’S dealings with Old Testament Israel, we can easily see what HIS response is to a nation that rejects HIM and follows a secular path in the pursuit of self satisfaction and self glorification. Since GOD changes not, our concern should be HIS response to our current humanistic leanings and ungodly desires. Without a national repentance, is there an apocalyptic event in store for America?
It has been said that, "We stand on the shoulders of giants" in reference to the legacy of those who walked with God in previous generations. The Treasury of Daily Devotions brings us the writings of influential Christians in previous eras. Their zeal will challenge us to go forward in the Christian life and be equipped to serve the Lord. Spiritual growth, like physical growth, requires careful nurture. For this we need help from God and from His servants sent to encourage us along the way.

This edited collection shows how demographic analysis plays a pivotal role in planning, policy and funding decisions in Australia. Drawing on the latest demographic data and methods, these case studies in applied demography demonstrate that population dynamics underpin the full spectrum of contemporary social, economic and political issues. The contributors harness a range of demographic statistics and develop innovative techniques demonstrating how population dynamics influence issues such as electoral representation, the distribution of government funding, metropolitan and local planning, the provision of aged housing, rural depopulation, coastal growth, ethnic diversity and the well-being of Australia's Indigenous community. Moving beyond simple statistics, the case studies show that demographic methods and models offer crucial insights into contemporary problems and provide essential perspectives to aid efficiency, equity in public policy and private sector planning. Together the volume represents essential reading for students across the social sciences as for policy makers in government and private industry.
