Dear Pastor, One of my Christian friends gave me a copy of your book entitled Biblical Misconceptions About Divorce and Remarriage. Let me just say that even as I write this email to you, my vision is still blurry from all the tears of relief and gratitude I have shed. I have been living under the cloud of Second Class Christian at best and Adulteress Who Will Burn In Hell at worst for a very long time now. I have always felt that I was still accepted by the Lord because of what I know of His character. But, I have been periodically assaulted by this condemnation for a long time. At times, I didnt even want to go to church any more because of all the condemnation I felt, even though in my heart, I still knew that the Lord loved me. Your book was a Gift from God. I really dont have the words sufficient enough to tell you how much this teaching has meant to me. I was married to an abusive man, and because I left him and remarried, I am considered the bad guy. During this marriage, I had a very loving friend call me up weekly - if not more often - to make sure I was even still alive. It was, needless to say, a very stressful time in my life. And then, to be rejected by some Christians because of my remarriage, to be called an adulteress, to be called an unrepentant sinner - was another arrow shot at my already broken heart. I wish I could give you a present that compares to the gift you have given me. All I can offer you is a Thank You from a formerly broken hearted Christian who has now come to realize, more than I have ever realized before, how much the Lord loves and accepts me. (Colleen)

There is a growing interest in firms’ adoption of ethical and social marketing approaches among academics and practitioners alike. Ethical Marketing is the application of ethics into the marketing process, and Social Marketing is a concept that seeks to influence a target audience for the greater social good. Ethical and Social Marketing in Asia examines this so-far unexplored area, investigating why differing cultures and consumption behaviours require different emphasis in different markets. The diversity of the Asian countries provides a perplexing environment to the development and management of ethical and social marketing. The belief that bottom line profits is enough for a company, is often not favourably viewed by Asian countries emphasising collective, social and long term benefits for the people and country. Due to these interesting characteristics and complexities, the study of ethical and social marketing in Asia is a timely topic. The first chapters introduce Ethical Marketing in Asia, followed by case studies of how the approach is used across 14 diverse economies, geographically based on ‘clusters’; North East, (China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea), South East (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines, Indonesia) and South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh). The second part discusses Social Marketing using the same sequence of regions and economies and the third part explores the unique link to Fairness Management in Asia, followed by a conclusion. explores the nature of ethical and social marketing from an Asian perspective discusses current ethical and social marketing researches and practices in different areas, industries, commercial and non-commercial sectors serves as an invaluable resource for marketing academics and practitioners requiring more than anecdotal evidence of different ethical and social marketing applications compares and contrasts unethical situations covering important aspects related to ethics, society and fairness includes an interesting mix of theory, research findings and practices

Gray's Anatomy is probably one of the most iconic scientific books ever published: an illustrated textbook of anatomy that is still a household name 150 years since its first edition, known for its rigorously scientific text, and masterful illustrations as beautiful as they are detailed. The Making of Mr Gray's Anatomy tells the story of the creation of this remarkable book, and the individuals who made it happen: Henry Gray, the bright and ambitious physiologist, poised for medical fame and fortune, who was the book's author; Carter, the brilliant young illustrator, lacking Gray's social advantages, shy and inclined to religious introspection; and the publishers - Parkers, father and son, the father eager to employ new technology, the son part of a lively circle of intellectuals. It is the story of changing attitudes in the mid-19th century; of the social impact of science, the changing status of medicine; of poverty and class; of craftsmanship and technology. And it all unfolds in the atmospheric milieu of Victorian London - taking the reader from the smart townhouses of Belgravia, to the dissection room of St George's Hospital, and to the workhouses and mortuaries where we meet the friendless poor who would ultimately be immortalised in Carter's engravings. Alongside the story of the making of the book itself, Ruth Richardson reflects on what made Gray's Anatomy such a unique intellectual, artistic, and cultural achievement - how it represented a summation of a long half century's blossoming of anatomical knowledge and exploration, and how it appeared just at the right time to become the 'Doctor's Bible' for generations of medics to follow.
