"I met a prostitute - Angela W - from the fishing port of Grimsby on the mouth of the Humber in the North of England. I instantly fell in love with her in an all consuming way. The pain inside my body, so massively accumulated with the death of hopes for the social revolution...was wrenched away from me as she slowly...shambled towards me." So begins Dave Wise's first hand account of King Mob, the late 60s London based political grouping formed after core members were excluded from the Situationist International. From a radical, working class perspective, Wise recounts their attempts to move "from the Situationist salon to the street", whilst frankly outlining identifying tactical, strategic and theoretical holes in the groups' day to day actions. Plans to blow up waterfalls, getting arrested on demos dressed as pantomine horses (the back end got off in court, on the grounds he didn't know what the front end was doing...), sharing oversized baked bean costumes with ultra-Maoists on Vietnam marches. Getting high and hungrily devouring Coleridge, De Quincey, Rimbaud, Marx, De Sade, Breton, Joyce and Hegel. Urinating over the lectern whilst declaring the death of art at the 1968 English Surrealist convention, being (falsely) put in the frame for the 1969 Newcastle School of Art firebombing; perhaps most infamously dressing up as Santa Claus in Selfridges toy dept, Xmas '69, and watching the chaos of consumerism unfold before them as crying children had the King Mob freely-gifted toys wrenched from their arms by employees. As the downturn of the early 1970's approached, and with it the apparent end of any hope for imminent social revolution, some of King Mob drifted off into various strands of bourgeois counterculture, whilst others faced up to the harsher realities of the "capsized utopia". Some didn't make it through, as an at times unintentionally moving epilogue here recalls. "A Critical Hidden History" is a living, breathing account of a brief moment in time, when the light got through the cracks in the wall, and a new world felt possible. As we career into the 21st century, the relevance of the playful, life affirming, non-hierarchical, anti-capitalists King Mob seems as great today as it ever did.

Nehemiah: Building out of the Rubble is a book about restoration. No matter how hopeless or helpless your situation may seem, God is always in the business of complete repair! The power of the Cross is that it is a complete work, so there is nothing more to be done in order to experience absolute fullness in every area of our lives. Colossians 2:9-10, 13-14 says, For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power . . . And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross. As you read Nehemiah, remember that no situation--no relationship--nodisease--no prisoner--is too far gone or binding for God to rebuild, heal, or set free.

Life is full of challenges. The question is not whether or not we will face difficulties, because we all know that difficulties are a part of living. The question really is, "What are we going to do with our difficulties?" Jesus says, "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world" (John 16:33, NIV). This truth is exactly what we see in Elisha: The Prophet with a Double Portion. In the midst of trouble, hardship, and impossibilities, we see this prophet overcoming by the power of the Spirit. He is not removed from difficulties, but He rises above them and rules in the midst of them! Do your troubles rule you, or do you rule your troubles? Do you fight the difficulties in your life, or do you allow God to use them for your success? We can sink in the ocean or we can surf the waves; it is all in our perspective of the water. Learn how you can have a double portion of power and abundance through Elisha: The Prophet with a Double Portion. Rebekah Faith Maiorana, Editor in Chief
