The Becomers is Keith Miller's answer to this question. He believes the new convert has just been freed to start actualizing gifts and potentiali­ties which have always been inherent in his life­but which he may have been afraid to face. He is a "becomer" in process, a Christian on the move toward deeper and more honest relationships with people, with God, and with himself. Conversion, then, is only the beginning. Through his encounters with small groups, Mr. Miller discovered how difficult it is to communi­cate twentieth-century faith in nineteenth-century language. He reports, "I have searched everywhere for words and symbols to describe that which is taking place in my own life and throughout the church. It is out of this struggle to find and de­velop communication models for becomers that this book is written." In a manner that has become uniquely and refreshingly his own, Keith Miller delves into the subterranean caverns of the mind and spirit of a group of new Christians produced by th contem­porary church renewal movement. Their vibrant, involved life-style raises some serious questions: Why the "personal" stance in communicating the gospel? What's inside, behind our ma. k ') What happens in conversion? What about Christian growth? How doe~ a becomer face the world'! A becomer is a Christian willing to risk psy­chological and material securities in the world for others, and thus for God. "We are in the process of becoming whole as we reach out with open and creative hands toward work, people, and God." "The Becomers is the next best thing to an eve­ning with Keith Miller. His personal and even autobiographical approach is a high-risk venture. Somehow, it works!" MARTIN E. MARTY Associate Dean, The Divinity School University of Chicago "Keith Miller has done it again. The Becomers will. be warmly welcomed by those who have found help in his uncommon combination of personal reflections, biblical insights, and psy­chological awareness. Thousands of men and women have learned to wrestle with their faith and to enjoy it at the same time through Keith Miller's ministry." DAVID ALLAN HUBBARD President, Fuller Theological Seminary KEITH MILLER" reputation as a bestselling author was firmly established in 1965 with the publication of The Taste of New Wine. A Second Touch and Habitation of Dragons secured his position as a spokesman for thc church renewal movement. Now over one million copies of these books are in print. Keith Miller, an Episcopal layman, is well known also as a speaker and lecturer. He holds degrees in business administration, theology, and psychological counseling.

The author argues against today's dominant theory that learning disabilitie s are caused by neurological deficits. He explains the development of this paradigm as the response of our educational system to post-war social and e conomic trends. Coles first examines the history of dyslexia research, find ing most of it to be inconclusive. He then presents a new model of learning problems, in which family and school environments are the major determinan ts of academic success. In this "interactive" paradigm, the attitudes and m ethods of education are more important than inherent strengths or deficits of the individual child. This book prompts us to reexamine some of our educ ational system's basic assumptions., Ballantine Books, 1989

[SR: 3477010], Paperback, [EAN: 9780449903513], Ballantine Books, Ballantine Books, Book, [PU: Ballantine Books], 1989-01-15, Ballantine Books, An essential book for any parent whose child has been labeled “learning disabled,” for any teacher who has worked with these children, for anyone interested in the future of education and the future of our children   With alarming, even shocking frequency, children of normal intelligence who do not read, remember, or concentrate at the same level as their peers are branded “learning disabled,” the victims of some sort of neurological dysfunction. No one thought to examine the theory or the practice that has consigned nearly two million of these children to “special ed” classes, subjected some of them to special treatment with drugs, and stigmatized many with a sense of intellectual inferiority for life.   The Learning Mystique is the first direct challenge by a distinguished scholar to the concept of learning disabilities. Rigorously scrutinizing all of the available research on learning disabilities, Gerald Coles demonstrates beyond question that neurological explanations have never been scientifically substantiated, and that a considerable amount of professional practice in the schools is based on mere speculation. But The Learning Mystique is more than a condemnation of the attitude toward learning disabilities. Coles presents his own stimulating ideas on learning differences, arguing that school failure must be viewed and treated in the context of both the learning environment and the child’s individual abilities, behavior, family life,, 11429, School-Age Children, 11401, Parenting, 20, Parenting & Relationships, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10687, Learning Disabled, 10680, Special Education, 5267708011, Schools & Teaching, 8975347011, Education & Teaching, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
