Reviewing Adventist World, NAD Edition

July, 2012
Vol. 8, No. 7

Adventist World is free online. For that reason, I only review or comment on articles that I believe to be of special interest. This includes editorials, special supplements, and NAD features not available online.

MINISTROKES. Allan R. Handysides and Peter N. Landless urge readers to remember FAST, the acronym emphasizes the major indicators of a stroke and the need for immediate action.
Face—impaired ability to smile.
Arms—weakness or paralysis.
Speech—slurred speech or lack of comprehension and confusion.
Time—is of the essence!

TWO HEARTS, ONE MISSION. Hein and Melissa Myburgh make the gospel practical in rural Zambia.

EMBEZZLEMENT IN THE CHURCH. Robert E. Lemon lists 7 rules designed to prevent it and 5 things to watch for in employees and volunteers who have access to money and accounting systems.

IN STEP FOR LIFE. Katia Reinert documents the Adventist campaign against obesity.

WHO IS THAT “MIGHTY HUNTER”? Angel Manuel Rodriguez tackles the question: What can you tell us about Nimrod, spoken of in Genesis 10:8-12? and reveals the “post biblical” stories that surround a Mesopotamian hero of uncertain ancestry.

MODERATOR’S NOTE: I want to extend kudos to a guy whose head occasionally “graces” my cartoons: Ricardo Graham. He, and his conference leadership, have taken a strong, principled stand for the ordination of women. In addition, the July Pacific Union Recorder has included a 16-page supplement explaining the Union’s position on this issue in both Spanish and English. This is a first bi-lingual explication of an important issue in any NAD magazine! This is an important first!
