Millennium 3

MILLENNIUM 3: Unresolved Issues of Our Time. Do you think there is too much political correctness? What can we do about the widening gap between the rich and the poor? Why are so many families breaking up? What can we do about violence in our society? Are we racist? Are you worried about the rise of ‘big brother’ and the invasion of your privacy? Do the moral issues surrounding the latest experiments in baby-making concern you? George probes these and other issues which plague NZ society, hurt so many people and cost the country billions of dollars. He comes up with some startling facts and results. He provides valuable insights and solutions, and outlines the need for a new kind of politics, and an urgent concentration on the ‘third dimension’ of human beings – their spirituality.

Trial To Triumph

TRIAL TO TRIUMPH: Inspiring Stories of Overcomers. What is it about the human spirit that enables people to overcome great personal disasters, and move on to help others?

Here are stories of ordinary people who have struggled against the odds and not just survived but overcome. The book examines the ‘undaunted human spirit’ and what motivates people to triumph over their trials. You will be inspired. You will identify in some way with the stories you read. You will find practical ways of dealing with life’s traumas. And you will wonder at the amazing resilience of the human spirit.Published by DayStar Books, 2010.
