📒The Age Of Walls ✍ Tim Marshall
📝The Age of Walls Book Synopsis : Tim Marshall, the New York Times bestselling author of Prisoners of Geography, analyzes the most urgent and tenacious topics in global politics and international relations by examining the borders, walls, and boundaries that divide countries and their populations. The globe has always been a world of walls, from the Great Wall of China to Hadrian’s Wall to the Berlin Wall. But a new age of isolationism and economic nationalism is upon us, visible not just in Trump’s obsession with building a wall on the Mexico border or in Britain’s Brexit vote but in many other places as well. China has the great Firewall, holding back Western culture. Europe’s countries are walling themselves against immigrants, terrorism, and currency issues. South Africa has heavily gated communities, and massive walls or fences separate people in the Middle East, Korea, Sudan, India, and other places around the world. In fact, at least sixty-five countries, more than a third of the world’s nation-states, have barriers along their borders. There are many reasons why walls go up, because we are divided in many ways: wealth, race, religion, and politics, to name a few. Understanding what is behind these divisions is essential to understanding much of what’s going on in the world today. As with Marshall’s first two books, The Age of Walls is a brisk read, divided by geographic region. He provides an engaging context that is often missing from political discussion and draws on his real life experiences as a reporter from hotspots around the globe. He examines how walls (which Marshall calls “monuments to the failure of politics”), borders, and barriers have been shaping our political landscape for hundreds of years, and especially since 2001, and how they figure in the diplomatic relations and geo-political events of today.
📒A Life Worth Dying For ✍ Jim Andrews
📝A Life Worth Dying For Book Synopsis : This is a book for those disciples of Jesus Christ who by hardwiring are scandalized by mediocrity and always feel this inner imperative to transcend the ordinary. In their souls is a holy rumbling of a divine discontent. Yet in that temperament is a high risk of a bunny trail that can throw the believer seriously off the scent of true Christian excellence. Far from running out in the race of life and proving that we little Davids can run with the world’s Goliaths, the radical meaning of Christian excellence, it is argued, is altogether different. In this informal philosophy of Christian excellence the true target of achievement turns out to be not so much excelling at all the things we do (in the conventional sense) but drawing a bead on what we are called to be in Christ. So, for us Christians, pursuing excellence is not really about piling up accolades for our various skills and talents, harvesting trophies and pinning up ribbons and earning plaques to celebrate our achievements. Rather, it is (by the grace of God) exerting ourselves to live in radical conformity to Christ. Its pursuit comes down to an all-out assault on the peak of our potential in Christ . . .an all-out effort (by grace) to be all we are called to be, to do all that we are called to do and to go wherever God has called us to go. The beauty of it is that this noblest target lies totally within reach of the earnest, but under-endowed believer. Unlike the secular vision, the Christian vision of excellence is not elitist, but blessedly egalitarian. In the only way that really matters, the most ordinary Christian can take the prize. No one is excluded by the accidents of birth or circumstances, only by lack of vision and holy effort. . That, the author contends, is the only life worth dying for. He not only defines the target in clear terms, but points the way in practical terms to the ascent.
