Groundfish, The New England Fishery Management Council, and the World Fisheries Crisis

By: Spencer Apollonio and Jacob J. Dykstra

This book reviews the fisheries of New England – “the poster child of mismanagement” – since 1977. It finds that many of the explanations offered for the New England problems are incorrect or irrelevant or counterproductive. It suggests that the problems lie in two general categories: first, the legislative and administrative context of management; and second and more serious, fundamental issues concerning fishing technologies, and lack of effective effort control strategies and an operational hypothesis of the dynamics of marine ecosystems. These latter issues are not confined to New England, but are inherent in most marine fisheries wherever they may be found. The book suggests a new concept for benign and selective fishing technologies, and it recommends a thorough review and analysis of the efficacy of effort control concepts. It proposes a management strategy based upon the hierarchical concept of ecosystems that could eliminate many of the current problems of management.
MINISTRY <BR><i>A handbook for preachers and teachers</i> <br>By: Glenn C. Tompkins, Th.D.

Filled with numerous Biblical references and examples of blessings and prayers, “Ministry: A Handbook for Teachers and Preachers” takes an in-depth look at preaching and is a well-written manual for those in the ministry or those who aspire to become a leader.

Mr. Tompkins writes about how to structure and present an effective sermon. In addition to knowing the Bible, the deliverer must also be able to extract the essential message and prepare a sermon that the listener can relate to. He equates delivering the sermon to that of giving a sales pitch - once the critical point is made, close the deal. If a minister tries to present all of his knowledge during a sermon, some of those followers may tune out. However, he warns to not try and make the Bible fit the message, but rather let the message come from the Bible.

Whether you are a new preacher, or a ministerial student or an experienced pastor, you sometimes look for a sermon idea, outline, illustration, poem or a bit of Bible trivia to make it interesting. You may want help with marriage or grief counseling, or a new idea on how to do a baby dedication. You may want to teach others how to preach, or take a refresher course yourself. It is all in this book by Glenn C. Tompkins, Th.D.
