Transitional ministry can be tremendously helpful for congregations in times of change, and yet, to be successful today transitional ministers and churches need to take into account the major changes in the religious landscape. From the decline of mainline churches to the rise of those who don’t identify with any religious tradition, the religious scene has changed dramatically since transitional ministry began three decades ago, and to remain vital today, the practice of transitional ministry must change as well. This book provides transitional ministers and congregations with essential information on re-thinking transitional ministry in ways that take the current religious climate into account. Ten experienced authors—including seasoned practitioners of transitional ministry and those who oversee transitional ministry denomination-wide—propose new ways to approach transitional ministry today. Chapters address practical theology, leadership, specialized interim situations, renewal during interim time, alternative models of transitional ministry, and more. Essays address a range of diverse churches in size, racial/ethnic background, and location. Transitional Ministry Today highlights how creative and cutting-edge ministry can be done during the “in-between-time” through creative thinking and practice in the face of new realities

A fascinating, vivid, and on-the-ground account of Russian Orthodoxy’s resurgence A bold experiment is taking place in Russia. After a century of being scarred by militant, atheistic communism, the Orthodox Church has become Russia’s largest and most significant nongovernmental organization. As it has returned to life, it has pursued a vision of reclaiming Holy Rus’: that historical yet mythical homeland of the eastern Slavic peoples; a foretaste of the perfect justice, peace, harmony, and beauty for which religious believers long; and the glimpse of heaven on earth that persuaded Prince Vladimir to accept Orthodox baptism in Crimea in A.D. 988. Through groundbreaking initiatives in religious education, social ministry, historical commemoration, and parish life, the Orthodox Church is seeking to shape a new, post-communist national identity for Russia. In this eye-opening and evocative book, John Burgess examines Russian Orthodoxy’s resurgence from a grassroots level, providing Western readers with an enlightening, inside look at the new Russia.

Labour law has always been preoccupied with boundaries. One can either be an 'employee' or not, an 'employer' or not, and the answer dictates who comes within the scope of labour law, for better or worse. But such divisions have always been difficult, and in recent years their shortcomings have become ever more pronounced. The proliferation of new work arrangements and heightened global competition have exposed a world-wide crisis in the regulation of work. It is therefore timely to re-assess the idea of labour law, and the concepts, in particular the age-old distinctions - that are used to delimit the field. This collection of essays, by leading experts from around the world, explores the frontiers of our understanding of labour law itself. Contributors: Harry Arthurs, Paul Benjamin, Hugh Collins, Guy Davidov, Paul Davies, Simon Deakin, Mark Freedland, Judy Fudge, Adrin Goldin, Alan Hyde, Jean-Claude Javillier, Csilla Kollonay Lehoczky, Brian Langille, Enriqué Marin, Kamala Sankaran, Silvana Sciarra, Katherine Stone and Anne Trebilcock.

China's commitments in Central Asia illustrate how regional foreign policy works and how long-standing principles of Chinese foreign policy might be revised in the near future. China's rise has 'moved' Asia, which is why it seems that what we have traditionally regarded as the geographic and political scope of Asia might actually considerably change in the near future. Nadine Godehardt gives crucial insights into the Chinese expert discourse on Central Asia - analyzing how Chinese experts define Central Asia when they talk and write about policy issues related to China's immediate Western neighbourhood. In this context, she gives an inside perspective on Chinese voices whose meanings are rarely examined in Chinese International Relations studies.

Pope Benedict XVI has made the liturgy a central theme of his pontificate, and he has paid special attention to the vitally important role of language in prayer. This historical and theological study of the changing role of Latin in the Roman Catholic Church sheds light on some of the Holy Father's concerns and some of his recent decisions about the liturgy. The Fathers of the Second Vatican Council allowed for extended use of the vernacular at Mass, but they maintained that Latin deserved pride of place in the Roman Rite. The outcome, however, was that modern translations of the prayers of the Mass replaced the Latin prayers. What was the reason for the Council's decision and why is there now a desire for greater use of Latin in Catholic worship? Why have some post-conciliar English translations of the prayers of the Mass been replaced? Fr. Lang answers these questions by first analyzing the nature of sacred language. He then traces the beginnings of Christian prayer to the Scriptures and the Greek spoken at the time of the apostles. Next he recounts the slow and gradual development of Latin into the sacred language of the Western Church and its continuing use throughout the Middle Ages. Finally, he addresses the rise of modern languages and the ongoing question of whether the participation of the laity at Mass is either helped or hindered by the use of Latin.

Brett Morton wanted to prove the experts were wrong. "Win at roulette?" they scoffed. "Impossible." You could almost hear them say "Bah! Humbug!" So he set about learning how to play, observing why people won and lost. Over the past ten years, he has debated with casino staff, statisticians, mathematicians, friends and other experts. All bar one were convinced that the casino could not be beaten – or if it could, then not consistently. But Morton insists the experts are mistaken, something he has learned through sheer discipline, by keeping it simple and understanding that winning at roulette is a percentage game. This book explains in plain language just how easy it is to win or lose at roulette. Winning occasionally is simple. His aim was to win consistently. Morton, after watching, playing and listening all over the world, distilled the information, working out why he too had been losing too often. From that base, Morton realised that winning every visit is impossible. Each spin of the wheel is a new and usually random event. Every spin is a fight against the casino's advantages. It was a challenge – to debunk the theorists, especially those who had never played. His research and hard work proved he was right: winning consistently is possible. Morton proved that mathematical theory and clinical statistics, flawless in concept, blinker common sense and have no place in determining why people win and lose in casinos. After all, taking British casinos as a good example, the odds against the player can be as small as 1.31% - yet the casinos still expect to win between 20 and 30% from roulette players over a year. Enough said! Despite the casino's edge and even playing with the American double-zero, roulette tackled with skill, discipline and experience is a game at which consistent winning is perfectly possible. But consistent winning does not mean that every casino visit ends with a celebration. It means winning most of the time and ensuring that losses on the horrific days are contained and do not destroy all the other good work. Morton explains the methods used, rates many of the well-known systems but above all brings a clear and refreshing vision to this tantalising game. The pundits are wrong! This book unlocks the secrets. It explains how and why you can Win at Roulette.
