"This material, prepared by experienced editors, is certainly very useful" Photosynthetica
Introducing your work
In this remarkable guide, Joseph E. Harmon and Alan G. Gross have combined their many years of experience in the art of science writing to analyze published examples of how the best scientists communicate. Organized topically with information on the structural elements and the style of scientific communications, each chapter draws on models of past successes and failures to show students and practitioners how best to negotiate the world of print, online publication, and oral presentation.
With the advent of the Internet, servicemembers are writing more than ever. But are they writing effectively and persuasively? Many are not. This revised, updated edition provides the basics of correct and effective military communication, with emphasis on substance, organization of content, and style, along with editing techniques and military and civilian formats.
The War of Art identifies the enemy that every one of us must face,
outlines a battle plan to conquer this internal foe, then pinpoints just
how to achieve the greatest success.
The War of Art emphasizes the resolve needed to recognize and
overcome the obstacles of ambition and then effectively shows how to
reach the highest level of creative discipline.
Think of it as tough love . . . for yourself.

Cracks in the Foundation: Controversies in Christianity presents fresh insight on the hottest topics in modern religious debate, such as Biblical Creation versus scientific evidence, and evil and suffering in God’s world, as well as other issues.
Many of today’s Christians struggle with issues rising from the Bible’s relation to modern science, from rational thought, and from mixed messages within the Bible itself. The Bible, if read literally, says God created heaven and earth 6000 years ago, and created humanity on the sixth day. But modern science says the universe came into being 14 billion years ago, and humanity evolved over millions of years from lower life forms. Others struggle with the prevalence of evil in God’s world, and with contradictory biblical statements concerning predestination versus free will.
Contradictions like these pose problems for people who think carefully about their beliefs. Indeed many younger people are now looking elsewhere for answers, and the number of Americans professing Christianity has recently dropped from 78% to 70%. However, thoughtful and inquisitive believers can now find an extremely valuable resource in Cracks in the Foundation. This book presents a wealth of fresh insights and perspectives on twelve of the hottest topics in modern Christian debate. A central theme is that many of the apparent contradictions are not as severe as they appear. We find in many cases that Bible, science, and rational thought are amenable to reconciliation and even mutual enrichment.
