This book was written in response to questions that I get from various people of many different denominations. Many people today claim to be too busy to do any serious studying of scripture. My response is we have to, at some point, make time. The collection of essays in this book, hopefully, will shed some light, and answer some of your questions. I was literally stunned by some of the beliefs I was hearing from different christians I had the opportunity to hold discussions with. As Paul told Timothy, and others, it is absolutely imperative that we safeguard the gospel from corruption. Is your Church safeguarding the Gospel?

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: 2,0, University of Örebro (Department of Business, Economics, Statistics & Informatics (ESI)), language: English, abstract: In regard to the text book “International Logistics” I have chosen the chapter “Logistics and famine relief” asking myself the question: “What logistical problems can arise from natural disasters and how can they be overcome?” Based on the Hurricane Katrina in August 2005, which has destroyed an entire landscape killing thousands of people and making even more homeless, I have developed my paper by introducing the different modes of transport that exist to support the logistics network in terms of disaster relief: plane, boat, rail, road, helicopters, rescue boats (hovercrafts, canoes and small boats). Pointing out the disadvantages and advantages of each mode I came to the conclusion that each of them serves special needs in certain situations so that all of them can be regarded as equal in their function. Concerning financial factors, however, the appropriability differs: shipment is more expensive than rail transport, for example. I also found out in which way the modes of transport can reach best the affected areas and how the distribution is organized. Based on this theoretical framework, I have switched to the question how the needs of people change after a natural disaster such as Katrina in the short and the long term. To put it in a nutshell, people long for basic provisions such as food and water in the short term but start to demand for luxury goods such as electricity again in the long term. Last but not least I have focused in my analysis on special issues that are affected (interrupted, destroyed, etc.) by natural disasters: re-routing, supply chain and warehousing.

​​​​​​​​​​​​Humanitarian logistics has received increasing interest both from logistics academics and practitioners as a result of the dramatic increase in both natural and man-made disasters. The impact on affected populations can be all the more limited as much as the logistics operations in response to emergencies are effective and efficient. Collaboration with various relevant actors involving in the emergency resolution can help to reduce costs, increase speed, and improve the leanness/agility level in the humanitarian supply chain, and viceversa, poor coordination among them is cited as an explanation for performance gaps. As disasters become increasingly complex better collaboration not only with government agencies, military units, humanitarian organizations, but also through partnerships with private business becomes more and more important. However, such partnerships are not easy as organizations in the two sectors are extremely different. The main aim of this study is exploring more in depth the partnership between profit and non-profit in emergency relief operations, with a specific attention to the cross-learning potential for both the logistics service provider (profit) and the humanitarian organization (non-profit).

The delivery of essential goods to beneficiaries in the aftermath of a disaster is one of the main objectives of relief logistics. Thereby, the present work aims to improve relief logistics by improving the location selection of warehouses, distribution centers, and points of distribution. Consequently, it offers the potential to significantly improve the distribution of goods in the aftermath of future disasters and, thereby, increase disaster resilience.

Due to the latest catastrophes caused by both man and nature, humanitarian logistics has received increasing interest from academics, practitioners and specialists. These interests are increased as well by an expanding market of disaster relief and by the fact that disaster relief supply chains are complex and dynamic, not to mention that they have a lot of uncertainties that make operations very complicated. Especially in disaster relief, the supply chains have to be fast, agile and flexible in order to rapidly provide the appropriate amount, and type of emergency supplies, to minimize human suffering or death. The last mile distribution is the final stage of the disaster relief supply chain, i.e. the delivery of relief supplies from local distribution centres to beneficiaries affected by disasters.The aim of this paper is to give an overview of supply chains in disaster relief, identify the main problems of the last mile distribution in disaster relief operations, describe optimization possibilities of the private sector, and examine the applicability for disaster situations.
