The prophet Joel predicted that in the last days God would pour out His Spirit on believers, and young people would see visions and old people would dream dreams. We need to learn the ancient language of dreams and the biblical importance of how to properly interpret them. In this book, we give numerous examples of God speaking though dreams and visions. We will also look at the dreams of Abraham and the Persian Magi given in extra-biblical documents. I included a small selection of dreams I have had over the years. We will look at these carefully and see patterns that will help us learn the language of God.

Uncertain Justice

Summary

Why is there so much uncertainty about how to reduce crime and fix what’s wrong with the criminal justice system? How can we make these fixes and lower the high costs of incarceration? Uncertain Justice discusses recent problems and suggests some fixes. To this end, it presents a commentary based on a recent series of press releases on current issues and is divided into these sections: Improving citizen-police relationships Promoting prison reform and better prison sentencing Healing the divisions in American society Dealing with illegal immigration Coping with the opioid crisis Portraying the criminal justice crisis in popular culture Using a social media and video campaign to help fix the criminal justice system. The chapters in each section highlight what’s wrong in response to recent developments in legislation, in the news, and in research reports. Then, each chapter concludes with some suggestions for reforming the system. Today, these fixes are needed more than ever, given the spiraling costs of crime and imprisoning too many prisoners for much longer than necessary. As the book describes, we need to have as many productive, understanding, legal, law-abiding citizens as possible to move the country forward.
