The aim of The Benefits of the New Economy is to point out the causes of today s economic turmoil and how it can be solved. The road toward solution lies not in any remedy from the past. Rather, it lies with a society where all support each other in mutual guarantee. This creates a social environment of care and consideration, and the understanding that we will rise or fall together, because we are all interdependent."

Since 1993, forty-nine theological seminaries have created opportunities for high school students to participate in on-campus High School Theology Programs (HSTPs) that invite them to engage in serious biblical and theological study. Many of the young people who take part in these programs go on to become pastoral or lay leaders in their churches. What has made these programs so successful — especially given the well-documented “crisis of faith” among young people today? In this book thirteen contributors — many of whom have created or led one of these innovative theology programs — investigate answers to this question. They examine the pedagogical practices the HSTPs have in common and explore how they are contributing to the leadership of the church. They then show how the lessons gleaned from these successful programs can help churches, denominations, and seminaries reimagine both theological education and youth ministry.

“We have a collective responsibility—to bring about a more stable and more prosperous world” (Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund). It wouldn’t make headline news if a scientist declared that in today’s world, we are all connected and dependent on each other. But it would become a main feature if a scientist said there is a proven way we can not only benefit from our connectedness, but actually enjoy it. Completing the Circle: an empirically proven method for finding peace and harmony in life, presents precisely that. Over a period of four years, the Connection-Circle and Round-Table discussion formats have proven themselves as successful methods for resolving seemingly unsolvable conflicts, reassembling shattered relationships, and bringing together alienated families. These discussions have been taking place in the US, Europe, and Israel, all with resounding success. Now, for the first time, Dr. Laitman has written down the knowledge base of his successful method, and added easy-to-implement sample circles. As we try out these innovative circles, we will discover new depths in our connections with each other, and fresh ideas for managing our lives more peacefully and harmoniously both for ourselves and our loved ones.

Media education for digital citizenship is predicated upon the ability to access, analyze, evaluate and produce media content and communication in a variety of forms. While many media literacy approaches overemphasize the end-goal of accessing digital media content through the acquisition of various technology, software, apps and analytics, this book argues that the goals for comprehensive and critical digital literacy require grasping the means through which communication is created, deployed, used, and shared, regardless of which tools or platforms are used for meaning making and social interaction. Drawing upon the intersecting matrices of digital literacy and media literacy, the volume provides a framework for developing critical digital literacies by exploring the necessary skills and competencies for engaging students as citizens of the digital world.
