For years 9 and 10. No Turning Back presents students with six timeless biblical themes from Ephesians that continue to resonate with us today. On offer is grace, forgiveness, light in the darkness, a true place to belong, a lavish inheritance, and ultimately, new life.
^No Turning Back challenges students to examine for themselves the gospel that the Christians in Ephesus accepted. Here is an opportunity for an authentic, fulfilling life that when properly understood is too good to pass up.
^^"The six themes dealt with in No Turning Back facilitated lots of excellent discussion in the classroom. This resource allowed us to get to the heart of the Gospel message very easily. It proved to be a really valuable resource for our year 10 classes.'
- Annette Ware, Head of Christian Studies, Abbotsleigh, Sydney.
Map. World MapUNIT 1. Anthropological Perspectives1. Doing Fieldwork Among the Yanomam, Napoleon A. Chagnon, from Yanomam: The Fierce People, Holt, Rinehart, and Winston, 1992Although an anthropologist's first field experience may involve culture shock, Napoleon Chagnon reports that the long process of participant observation may transform personal hardship and frustration into confident understanding of exotic cultural patterns.2. Doctor, Lawyer, Indian Chief, Richard Kurin, Natural History, November 1980In transforming an anthropologist into one of their own, villagers of Punjab say, "You never really know who a man is until you know who his grandfather and his ancestors were." In this way, Richard Kurin finds, selecting a village for fieldwork is a matter of mutual acceptance and mutual economic benefit.3. Eating Christmas in the Kalahari, Richard Borshay Lee, Natural History, December 1969Anthropologist Richard Borshay Lee gives an account of the misunderstanding and confusion that often accompanies cross-cultural experience. In this case he violated a basic principle of the !Kung Bushmen's social relations-food sharing.4. Coping with Culture Clash, Anver Versi, African Business, May 2002The inability to understand someone else's business culture has cost multinationals so much that many have now put culture awareness at the top of their management agenda. Africa is probably where the culture clash stakes are the highest.5. Battle of the Bones, Robson Bonnichsen and Alan L. Schneider, The Sciences, July/August 2000Recent archaeological findings have led to revolutionary new theories about the first Americans-and to a tug-of-war between scientists and contemporary Native Americans.UNIT 2. Culture and Communication6. In Click Languages, an Echo of the Tongues of the Ancients, Nicholas Wade, New York Times, March 18, 2003The existence of click sounds in human languages may seem odd, but they may provide a clue to the origin and spread of the human mother tongue.7. Why Don't You Say What You Mean?, Deborah Tannen, New York Times Magazine, August 28, 1994As fundamental elements in human communication, directness is not necessarily logical or effective, and indirectness is not necessarily manipulative or insecure. Each has its place in the broader scheme of things, depending upon the culture and the relationship between the speakers.8. "I Can't Even Open My Mouth", Deborah Tannen, from I Only Say This Because I Love You, Random House, 2001Since family members have a long, shared history, what they say in conversation-the message-echoes with meanings from the past-the metamessage. The metamessage may not be spoken, but its meaning may be gleaned from every aspect of context: the way something is said, who is saying it, or the very fact that it is said at all.9. Cowardice, R. Danielle Egan, Collateral Language, New York University Press, 2002If the world is to become a safer place, the language of public discourse must address the real motivations behind violent acts. Only then may we effectively and constructively address the problems of the world.10. Shakespeare in the Bush, Laura Bohannan, Natural History, August/September 1966It is often claimed that great literature has cross-cultural significance. In this article, Laura Bohannan describes the difficulties she encountered and the lessons she learned as she attempted to relate the story of Hamlet to the Tiv of West Africa in their own language.UNIT 3. The Organization of Society and Culture11. Understanding Eskimo Science, Richard Nelson, Audubon, September/October 1993The traditional hunters' insights into the world of nature may be different, but they are as extensive and profound as that of modern science.12. Without the Forest, There Is No Life, Jana Fortier, The World & I, September 2002Among the most unusual people in Nepal are the Raute, the last surviving hunter-gather
