One Humanity: The Biblical Mandate to Reach Everyone with the Gospel by Lisa Beardsley-Hardy
“Affirmation of one humanity embracing every ethnicity, race, caste, color and tribe is a work in progress at the individual and corporate level. In that process a two-fold call is made on every believer: to relate to others according to the dignity of their shared humanity; and to lead all to worship the Creator who made them for that high and noble purpose.”

9 Steps to Promote a Healthy Immune System: A Reflection in the Face of COVID-19 by Ernie Medina Jr.
“Short of living in a bubble or moving off the planet, it’s next to impossible to avoid exposure to toxins. So what can we do to detox our bodies? Here are nine recommendations.”

Altered Consciousness: Near-Death Episodes, and Mystical Experiences by Warren A. Shipton
“What are we to make of the claims of altered consciousness, near-death episodes, and after-death experiences? A current survey and a biblical critique.”

The Writings of Ellen G. White: A Prophetic Lens for our Time by Mxolisi Michael Sokupa
“The ministry of Ellen G. White was ever to point to Scripture and Christ, the clearest revelation of God’s love and character. Her writings have acted as a lens for understanding the Bible, its principles, and how to apply them to our time.”

The Life I Now Live by John M. Fowler
“Christian life does not begin with birth. It begins with death. Until self dies, until self is crucified, there is no beginning at all.”

Studying in a Public University? Walk in God’s Way, Witness to Christ’s Method by Ted N. C. Wilson
“Studying in a public university provides a unique opportunity to be a true missionary. Use Christ’s method of making friends, place yourself in God’s hands, and God will touch the lives of many!”

“I Will Go”: God’s Dream for University Students by Horacio Rizzo
Originally a regional slogan standing witness to the willingness of Adventist university students in Argentina and the South American Division to train and serve, “I will go” has now “become a global watchword, challenging every Adventist center of higher learning to involve university students in the church’s mission throughout the world.”

Dan Constantinescu: Dialogue with an Adventist politician, bank president, and university professor from Romania by Marius Munteanu
“Those who study in a public university have to face a lot: the offer and the pull of this world, so generous and so tempting; the temptations that are alluring and powerful; the ease with which one can slip away from God and embrace the values of the world. Against such temptations, there is no other counsel―so beautiful and so appropriate―than the enduring words of the Lord: ‘Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well’ (Matthew 6:33).”

South American Division Opens a Museum of Nature in Galápagos Islands by Marcos Natal Costa
In a region long associated with the theory of evolution, the new Origins of Museum of Nature “tells the story of creationism in an interactive way that engages the postmodern mind.”

This issue is also available in Spanish, French and Portuguese.
