Emotionally Healthy Spirituality: It's Impossible to Be Spiritually Mature, While Remaining Emotionally Immature
One percent of church leaders say that they are doing well in discipling new and young believers. After almost three decades of pastoring New Life Fellowship Church in the bustle of New York City, Peter Scazzero discovered that most people are not being changed in our churches, and, as a result, are not changing the world. Scazzero found two truths to be true: you can't be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature, and unless you slow and quiet your life down for a first-hand relationship with Jesus Christ, little change is possible. The integration of these two truths unleashed a spiritual revolution in Scazzero, in his church, and now in thousands of other churches. In this revised bestselling book, Scazzero outlines his journey and offers a roadmap for a discipleship with Jesus that is powerfully transformative. Topics include how to identify emotionally unhealthy spirituality, how to grow your soul through grief and loss, and how to develop into an emotionally mature adult. Offering new stories and principles, this updated edition will inspire readers to revolutionize their spiritual life.
HTML 5 is here, and with it, rich Internet applications (RIAs) take on a power, ease, scalability, and responsiveness that neither Ajax nor Comet could ever achieve. With this book, developers will learn how to use the latest cutting-edge web technology--available in the most recent versions of modern browsers--to build real-time web applications with unparalleled functionality, speed, and responsiveness. The HTML 5 specification represents the next evolution--or rather, a revolution--of web communications required to build real-time applications. WebSockets and server-sent events provide not only a standard against which real-time web applications can be built, but also a socket, native to the browser, that facilitates network programming from the browser with efficient bidirectional (full-duplex) communication over a single connection. As the central theme for the examples of this book, author Peter Lubbers draws on his experience as an ultra-long distance runner (try 165 miles in one go). He combines his passion for cutting-edge technology with real-life race scenarios in a way that will inspire you to take these new HTML 5 features--such as such as real-time race tracking, GPS integration, geo location, and live chat--to the limits. Explains how you can create real-time HTML 5 applications that tap the full potential of modern browsers Provides practical, real-world examples of HTML 5 features in action Shows which HTML 5 features are supported in current browsers and platforms What you'll learn How the HTML 5 specification has evolved How to design, develop, and run cutting-edge real-time web applications using new HTML 5 features like WebSockets, server-sent events, cross-document messaging, geo location, storage, canvas, and video Which features are available in browsers today and how you can run your applications in older browsers that do not support HTML 5 features How to use client-side APIs to communicate directly with back-end systems such as messaging systems, JMS brokers, XMPP servers, and online services such as Google Wave How to set up and configure an enterprise WebSockets server The security aspects surrounding real-time HTML 5 applications Who is this book for? This book is for developers who want to use the latest cutting-edge technology available in current browsers; developers who want to create dynamic, data-driven web applications; and developers who want to know which HTML 5 features are supported in current browsers.
