The War Within: America's Battle over Vietnam is a painfully engrossing and popularly written account of how the battle on the home front ended America's least popular war. This absorbing narrative, hailed by critics of every persuasion, is the fruit of over a decade's worth of research: the author sifted through mountains of government documents, press coverage, and transcripts of interviews he conducted with virtually all of the key players, both inside the U.S. government and among the dissenters who eventually brought the war to an end. In these pages the antiwar era comes to life through the words of scores of participants, both the famous and the forgotten, who speak with candor and passion about this tumultuous period. A remarkable story of a powerful grassroots movement and its influence on officials in Washington.
The word 'home' brings with it a cluster of ideas, sucj as love, security, discipline, warmth and commitment. At the heart of 'home' is not a place or a building, but a right relation to someone, who will give you the things that you need while loving you. 'Home' in that sense was God's idea, and the home and family, at their best, are models for man's ideal relationship with God, but sin came in and changed all that. Now there is a homelessness which applied to the whole human race and of which each of us is a part. But God did not leave it there. He still brings men and women back to himself, and he has a place for his family, where they will be truly at home with himself and his Son Jesus Christ for ever. In simple, clear language, this book shows us the way back to God and urges us to 'come home to God....for ever'. It is a book to read and to give to non-Christian friends. The author is well-known for his Evangelistic books.
Wells summons us back to first principles about missions. Human need is not the starting place. The gospel is a call to know and worship God.
A changed heart is needed to believe the gospel savingly.
Some Christians are depressed in their discipleship because the teaching they have received about the Christian life has been mistaken! Christian: Take Heart! is an antidote to bring healing to the lives of Christians impaired by wrong-headed teaching.
Tom Wells meets the widespread need for a clear explanation of the biblical teaching on the meaning of the cross. He also deals with the important question, 'For whom did Christ die?'.
