 Christianity is one of the most popular subjects of debate in the world today. In this book, Dr. Ward directs the debate to the Bible itself. He contends that the core of the biblical revelation of Christ has been overlooked, ignored and even dismissed throughout thousands of years of Church history. He challenges us to look deeper into the Scripture and discover what it means that Jesus is Christ. As many precious gifts come in a small package, Christ is identified in the Bible with one small, five letter word used in its metaphysical context only four times in only one chapter of the New Testament. In the beginning was the Logos and the Logos was with God and the Logos was God…and the Logos became flesh and dwelt among us (Jn. 1:1, 14). As Dr. Ward demonstrates, once we have a grasp of the meaning of this single Word, it acts like a secret code unlocking the vision of the Big Picture, Grand Design God intended when he inspired John to write his Gospel. Unfortunately, few Christians today know anything about the Great Conversation of philosophical thought that John adopted at the core of his God-Story. Dr. Ward invites us into our own personal psychological encounter with a here-and-now renaissance Return to Antiquity, joining the Church Fathers who dedicated their lives to the depth of this expansive vision. Open your mind to revision and redefine your faith. Let the big “T” Truth transform your mind, heal your wounds and open your heart to this wonderful heritage at the root of the great Christian tradition—From Glory to Glory!
What began twenty years ago as a journey of exploration into the interplay between chaos, order, and the creative process culminates in this capstone work of Harrison Owen’s pioneering career. From the creator of Open Space Technology (OST), Wave Rider shows how to apply the fundamental principles of self-organization – the driving power behind OST’s immense success – not just to a single event but to the day-to-day management and leadership of organizations. Owen proposes that all systems – not only our organizations but indeed the entire cosmos – are fundamentally self-organizing. Control is ultimately an illusion, and attempts to assert it are a waste of time and can even be destructive. If we want to have truly high-performing organizations, at some point we need to set aside our preconceived goals and strategies, important as they are, and align ourselves and our work with the primal force of self-organization – learn how to ride that wave. To that end, Owen lays out eight concrete steps for becoming a successful Wave Rider, derived from the global experience of hundreds of thousands of Open Space events, wit ha clear focus on producing exceptional performance. The book includes a real-life tale from a genuine Wave Rider, Dee Hock of VISA International, as well as an imagined account of a day in the life of a wave-riding manager, to show how self-organizing principles can deal with specific functions like running a staff meeting, managing projects, motivating staff, and much more. Wave Rider is another exceptional contribution from one of organizational developments true innovators.
