Future Matters by Barbara Adam,Chris Groves Summary
Future Matters concerns contemporary approaches to the future - how the future is known, created and minded. In a social world whose pace continues to accelerate the future becomes an increasingly difficult terrain. While the focus of social life is narrowing down to the present, the futures we create on a daily basis cast ever longer shadows. Future Matters addresses this paradox and its deep ethical implications. It locates contemporary approaches to the future in a wider sociological and historical framework of practices, traces differences and continuities, and shows how contemporary practices of futures-construction make taking responsibility for futures all but impossible.
Adam by Anthony McDonald Summary
Adam is a delightful sixteen-year-old who does well in school and spends his spare time practising the cello. Or that's what his parents think.

Even Adam and Eve Needed a Marriage Counselor by M. D. Gary E. Wilson Summary
With a unique, tongue-in-cheek approach, Moses of Old Testament fame lets us in on a well-kept secret: Adam and Eve had the same marital troubles the rest of us deal with! God Himself counseled the couple through the stages of marriage - from infatuation and courtship to old age and the death of a spouse. The lessons Adam and Eve learned can be applied to every marriage. As Moses says, "I'm sure you're dying to learn . . . the incredible secrets of success . . . and how the first married couple survived nine hundred and thirty years of marriage." Now, Moses reveals that God is upset with the state of marriage today. He tackles the affect these words from scripture have had: "and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee." Knowing that both women and men have suffered in their relationships and happiness because of this "law," he gives Moses the charge to "give this and future generations the Spousal Golden Rule." Told with humorous asides by Moses, Even Adam and Eve Needed a Marriage Counselor: Moses Tells All, reveals how marriage can become what God desires it to be.

Adam by Eve Langlais Summary

Somehow his heart explodes, too, with the last thing he ever expected—love. Adam survived the great cyborg purge because the military made a mistake, a mistake they lived to regret. They crossed the line when they decided to take away his free will and turn him into a machine. They erroneously thought him a slave they could command. However, their biggest screw up of all was when they didn’t terminate him at the first sign cyborgs were regaining sentience. As the rebel cyborg leader on Earth, Adam is doing everything he can to rescue others of his kind. Part of his current, undercover mission involves infiltrating a top secret military facility where he comes in contact with a human scientist. A sexy scientist whom he’s ordered to protect. What should have been an easy job turns into a fight for his life because it’s not just bullets and hit squads he’s got to worry about, but his heart. How can one fragile female mean so much? It’s almost too much for a rational-minded cyborg to understand. When the choice is given, escape or let her die, he lets his heart decide, and that's when things begin to explode—literally.

Adam by Ted Dekker Summary
It takes an obsessive mind to know one. And Daniel Clark knows the elusive killer he's been stalking. He's devoted every waking minute as a profiler to find the serial killer known only as Eve. He's pored over the crime scenes of sixteen young women who died mysterious deaths, all in underground basements or caverns. He's delved into the killer's head and puzzled over the twisted religious overtones of the killings. What Daniel can't possibly know is that he will be Eve's next victim. He will be the killer's first Adam. After sixteen hopeless months, the case takes a drastic turn on a very dark night when Daniel is shot and left for dead. Resuscitated after twenty minutes of clinical death, Daniel finds himself haunted by the experience. He knows he's seen the killer's face, but the trauma of dying has obscured the memory and left him with crushing panic attacks. Nothing--not even desperate, dangerous attempts to reexperience his own death--seems to bring him closer to finding the killer. Then Eve strikes again, much closer to home. And Daniel's obsession explodes into a battle for his life . . . his sanity . . . his very soul. Enter a world of death and near death that blurs the lines between fiction and reality in a way that will leave you stunned. "The detail is stunning, pointing to meticulous research in FBI methods, forensic medicine, and psychological profiling. We have to keep telling ourselves that this is fiction. At the same time, we can't help thinking that not only could it happen, but that it will happen if we're not careful." David M. Kiely and Christina McKenna, authors of The Dark Sacrament
Adam's Ancestors by David N. Livingstone Summary
He reveals how what began as biblical criticism became a theological apologetic to reconcile religion with science—evolution in particular—and was later used to support arguments for white supremacy and segregation. From heresy to orthodoxy, from radicalism to conservatism, from humanitarianism to racism, Adam's Ancestors tells an intriguing tale of twists and turns in the cultural politics surrounding the age-old question, "Where did we come from?"
